I thought Fergal Keane's approach was fresh, and his interviews engaging. This was entertaining and educational, although of course the modern bits were shaded more to one side than the other.

This is an outstanding in-depth historical survey of great value. But please be aware that it was produced by the NORTHERN Ireland B.B.C. ,.. and that it gets a bit fuzzy concerning the civil strife in the early 20th century. ( Kev's PICkS : In the interest of balance and contrast ,.. see the last episode of "The Story of Ireland" only AFTER first seeing "The Wind That Shakes the Barley".)

An outstanding overview to Irish history from earliest settlement to the present day. It offers us a complicated story that touches on social, political, religious, economic, and military themes, and is quite informative and thorough. The end result makes you want to explore even deeper into the history of the country and the people.

Covers Ireland's history from start to when the global financial crisis hit. Excellent aid to understanding the problems that Ireland has had, and is more complex than I (and people I have spoken to about) realised.
Few too many talking heads for my liking. Uses fantastic artwork created by a knife scraping away material to make lines. Some pictures are very elaborate.
