RTÉ's new five-part 1916 commemorative drama Rebellion begins with the outbreak of World War I.
The violent birth of modern Ireland. Five part drama series as seen on RTE 1 about the emergence of a new state during one of the most disruptive and terrifying periods in history. The drama begins with the outbreak of World War One and continues with a band of Irish rebel’s fighting for a Free State and independence.
As expectations of a short and glorious campaign are dashed, extremism comes to the fore as social stability – the very fabric of life – erodes. We see the tumultuous events through the eyes of men, women and children from Dublin, Galway, Belfast and London.
There are winners and losers, loves and losses. Rebellion marks the 100th Anniversary of the Easter Rising
