Sideline’s series Revolting Ireland set for Virgin Media repeat in June 2023.
In this engaging and entertaining 4 part series presenter Simon Delaney (Tales of Irish Castles, The Good Wide, The Snapper) takes VM1 viewers on a journey to explore how modern Ireland emerged and developed socially, politically and culturally. The series not only wraps up the 100 years of women’s battle for civil and human rights, but also marks a seismic rejection of the teachings and to the power of the Catholic Church in Ireland.
To inject commentary and insights an impressive range of people offer personal views, opinions and even first hand experiences of the strikes, rebellion, marches, protests – and we also feature the role that both music and comedy impacted on social behaviour and protest.
Backed up by personal and historical archive, plus a related soundtrack, the content and personal comments from all four shows will influence and spark public debate as articulate interviewees from all walks of life offer their opinions and recount their first hand experiences as objectors.
