Ireland's Great Hunger and the Irish Diaspora Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Tue, Oct 17, 2017 -- 5:00 AM

Ireland's Great Hunger and the Irish Diaspora explores not just the potato failure that caused mass starvation, death, and emigration in Ireland from 1845 to 1852, but the historic and socio-political circumstances that made the Great Famine almost inevitable. The Emmy Award-winning documentary, narrated by actor Gabriel Byrne, includes insights from famine scholars and descendants of famine survivors as well as the stories of emigrants to Quebec and the "Earl Grey" orphan women who emigrated to Australia.
