A lost opportunity
A very disappointing series with poorly chosen guests and not enough critical rigour which is vital in any historic analysis.
An excellent review of a major Irish historical enigma
This series and the book by Diarmuid Ferriter offer a revealing view of a man who has always puzzled me. He becomes a much more human and understandable person in these programmes. I think Dr. Ferriter presents a very fair evaluation of a great historical figure.
Very enjoyable series, I would highly recommend to anyone with a interest in the subject.
Only quibble seems to be. Mix up in the episodes.
More of the same please
