Another New Island/RTÉ collaboration that is bound to have the living and the dead up in arms! The passing of great historical figures nearly always brings out a stream of platitudes, of warm recollections and reminiscence of their great achievements.
As such, it is only with considerable passing of time that the true legacy of these major figures can be looked at in all objectivity and fair mindedness, free from the distorting elements of nostalgia and hysteria. And sometimes, the results are not quite so positive!
