Inspired by recent Netflix-style documentaries, Finné is a home-grown documentary series commissioned by TG4 featuring the human side of big Irish stories that have made the headlines over the past 50 years. Filmed over 12 months by Galway’s Magamedia and presented by RTÉ’s courts correspondent, Orla O’Donnell, Finné revisits gross miscarriages of justice that have taken place in Ireland in the recent past.
The story of the Wood Quay controversy as told through the eyes of archaeologist Pat Wallace. When Dublin Corporation proposed to build a new headquarters on the site of an old Viking settlement, concerned citizens took to the streets and stopped the bulldozers. It was a race against time for Wallace to ensure that this site of huge heritage importance was successfully excavated in time before the bulldozers were moved in.
