Video: RTE's Easter Rising 1916 drama Insurrection back on screen after 50 years

Insurrection - an eight-part drama originally screened on RTÉ in 1966 depicting the events of the Easter Rising as they unfolded day-by-day - is set to air again.

The eight-part drama told the story of the Rising in a real-time TV news report style and was a hugely ambitious project for the station at the time.

Insurrection was written by acclaimed playwright Hugh Leonard and featured well-known actors from 1966.
