Liam Neeson will narrate a series to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. The three-part documentary series, entitled 1916: The Irish Rebellion, will be broadcast on Irish television next year. The documentary will also be shown in Irish embassies across the world.
The documentary is being funded primarily by the University of Notre Dame in Indiana and RTE, according to reports in the Irish Times. The primary aim of the documentary is to ‘show how the Easter Rising was not only a pivotal event in 20th century Ireland, but also an event of international importance.’
Question: Do we think this will enhance or detract from Mr. McCann’s efforts to bring The Rising to its completion?
