Michael Collins

Made during the making of Neill Jordan's movie, this film looks at the historical facts behind the Irish revolutionary leader.

Adam Sweeting: Guardian: Monday, October 28 1996.
. . . trod with feline stealth around the heavily-mined perimeter of sectarian politics and national sensibilities. . . . The programme was a cunning mix of The Making of Michael Collins, describing how Dubliners in twenties costumes volunteered as unpaid extras, The Neil Jordan Story (with Melv an Neil chatting on Neil's luxurious seaside terrace) and Michael Collins - The Accountant As Terrorist (Collins excelled at both assassination and double entry book-keeping).

Brian Case: Time Out: October 23-30 1996
Fascinating!
