- Irish empire
- "From the origins of the 'scattering' of the Irish over the centuries, to the dreams of a mythical home nurtured by so many Irish migrants today, The Irish Empire is a lively exploration of the ups and downs of the Irish experience abroad -- as seen by themselves, and as they are perceived by others."--Container.

- Yellow bittern the life and times of Liam Clancy /
- "A surprising and darkly revealing protrait of Liam Clancy, the man Bob Dylan called 'the best ballad singer I ever heard in my life.' This intimate, confessional and highly cinematic film charts the remarkable rise to fame of the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, from their small-town beginnings in County Tipperary in Ireland to the folk hey-day of Greenwich Village in the sixties where they absorbed black musical influences, played for JFK and out-sold The Beatles. The Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem would go on to influence a host of popular artists from Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger to The Pogues, and become a powerful iconic presence on the Irish cultural map"--Container.
