Few Can See

Broadcasters across these islands have entered into a blackout strike. The workers are transmitting a programme bringing censored voices back onto the airwaves.

'Few Can See' examines the legacy of broadcast censorship of the conflict in the north of Ireland and political movements during this era. The project attempts to recreate material absent from state archives due to censorship, based on contemporary oral history interviews.
