One hundred years ago, a tiny rebellion in a corner of the British Empire helped forge a new nation and altered the lives of millions… but it also ended the lives of forty children. Based on his bestselling book, broadcaster Joe Duffy tells the story of the Irish 1916 Easter Rising as seen from the perspective of those Children of the Revolution.
This fascinating documentary tells a timeless human story of life and death in the middle of conflict. Until now, many of them have gone unnamed, their final resting places unmarked, their sacrifice unrecognised.
Produced by Dhruba Banerjee, Directed by Gerry Hoban and edited by EGG’s Guy Montgomery , we also completed all of the picture and sound post production and created the graphics and animation for this documentary.
