and not even answering the phone.
Why? Because tonight (the 16th) a new TV series, Story of Ireland, began.
Presented by Fergal Keane, it’s a five-parter and tonight’s episode raced from the earliest beginnings to the eve of the Norman invasion. It’s on BBC2 at 1900 in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, and at 2320 in Scotland.
And on the 30th of May? Well, on that day episode 3, The Age of Revolution, promises to look at the 17th and 18th centuries… and ‘how revolution in America and France paved the way for Ireland’s 1798 rebellion.’
