Hunger: The Story of the Irish Famine

Season 1, Episode 2 of 2

The British government decides that all further famine relief for the Irish must be paid for from rates raised on Irish landlords. When landlords either cannot or will not pay, many evict their struggling tenants, forcing millions to either move into already crowded cities or to emigrate. At the famine's conclusion, one million Irish have perished and the remaining working classes attempt to build new lives in America. For those that remain inIreland, a new generation is committed to achieve self-determination and to revive a dying culture.
