The one-hour documentary, researched and written by Dr Ian Kenneally and produced by Midlands 103, looks at four stories from the midlands during the Irish Civil War: an ambush in Glasson in August 1922; the shooting of Patrick Mulrennan in October 1922; the civil war diaries of Alice Ginnell; and the state-sanctioned executions that took place in Custume Barracks on 20 January 1923. It also contains a never-before broadcast interview related to those executions.
