THE SIEGE

THE SIEGEDramatic reinactment from Doubleband Films

Recently completed in Yellowmoon for BBC NI was “The Siege”.

Delivering a hugely dramatic yet still largely unknown and misunderstood story, in this documentary writer Carlo Gebler explores how the Siege of Derry was a pivotal event in the history of Ireland – one which placed Derry and Ulster not only at the heart of an epic clash between Catholic and Protestant for the crown of England but the centre of the European struggle between France and the United Provinces.

Edited by David Gray, Produced by Jonathan Golden and Directed by Michael Hewitt
