Dying for a Drink
You can see my new documentary, Dying For A Drink, which examines Northern Ireland's curious relationship with alcohol, tonight at 9pm on BBC One NI. I've written about the documentary for the Belfast Telegraph here. The film was brilliantly directed by Brian Henry Martin, who writes about his approach here. The programme was produced by Ronan Feely, who has since left the country. No -- he's not in hiding. Ronan recently re-located to the United States with his fiancée and will soon be a married man with a mid-Atlantic accent. I think Dying For A Drink was his last project at DoubleBand films before the big move to the Pacific North West. It was a blast, Ronan. I expect he will soon launch a take-over bid for a major American network.
