The official release date for Bás nó Saoirse is October 2015
‘Bás nó Saoirse’ (Death or Liberty) is a stirring journey into the heroic lives of the many rebels who were exiled to the prison without walls – Australia. Two hundred years ago, these men were martyrs to their homeland’s cause, but their lives as convicts are an amazing untold story – until now. The Irish, Welsh, Scottish, American and Canadian revolutionaries and radicals of the 19th century are remembered for their actions at home, but little is known of their lives in the prison colonies of Australia. Through vivid first-hand accounts, this docudrama series will tell the story of the passionate, literary and sometimes foolhardy individuals who helped to forge the modern Australian nation.
'Bás nó Saoirse' will be broadcast this Autumn on TG4; Part One - Éire go Bragh on the 6th of October at 21:30, and Part Two - Éire Óg, on 13th of October at 21:30
