02 Dec The Hunger: The Story of the Irish Famine TV Premiere
This great and harrowing full length TV series The Hunger: The Story of the Irish Famine documentary is directed by Ruan Magan, and narrated by Liam Neeson, and has an equally fabulous score from AMP’s lead composer Natasa Paulberg, which is not to be missed. (You can catch up on the RTE player)
