1916 The Irish Rebellion Previous Broadcasts

When Myth and History Rhyme (Episode #103)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 17, 2018 -- 4:00 PM

The concluding episode details the aftermath and response to the Rising in Ireland and abroad. The initial reaction of many Dubliners to the Rising gave way to a grudging respect that grew exponentially with the British response. The rebellion, while ostensibly a failure, created the conditions for a national revolution and changed the course of Irish history.

Insurrection (Episode #102)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 17, 2018 -- 3:00 PM

The story of the Rising itself; the way in which the clandestine and separatist Irish Republican Brotherhood infiltrated the Irish Volunteer Movement; the attempt to secure assistance from Britain's enemy Germany; the arrest of Roger Casement and the botched gun-running off the coast of Ireland immediately before the Rising; the confusion surrounding the order and countermand for a call up of the Irish Volunteers on Easter Sunday; British Intelligence awareness of what was planned and an apparent lack of readiness to tackle what happened on Easter Monday.

Awakening (Episode #101)

KQED World: Sat, Mar 17, 2018 -- 2:00 PM
