1916-Easter-Rising

Mr G talks about the joys of Easter, as well as a look back to Dublin’s Easter Uprising of 1916, which was a pivotal event in Ireland’s recent history.

Other subjects include The Peasants’ Revolt (also called Wat Tyler’s Rebellion or the Great Rising), and a look at Greenwich’s new statue.
