The Belfast Blitz

60’ documentary, broadcast 18th & 23rd April 2011

Nominated Best Factual, IFTA Awards 2012

At Eastertime in 1941, the Luftwaffe unleashed a devastating attack on a major industrial city, inflicting the largest single loss of life in any Blitz outside London, and crippling an exhausted Britain’s war effort as she stood alone against the Nazis.

Seventy years after the devastating bombing of Belfast, this film pays tribute to Northern Ireland’s significance at the heart of Churchill’s war machine, her neglect by the authorities and the courage of her people in adversity. Combining award-winning immersive storytelling with gripping first-hand testimony from survivors, expert interviews and original archive footage, to reveal the shocking scale of this forgotten outrage.
