A Fanatic Heart: Geldof on Yeats
Written by Bob Geldof and historian and Yeats scholar Roy Foster, this landmark two-part documentary examines WB Yeats' life and work in the context of the cultural revolution that preceded 1916. Yeats led the way in imagining a new, proud, strong Ireland into being after the Famine – and how, after centuries of colonial oppression, he gave the people of Ireland back a story they could believe in and fight for.
