Tonight we visit the set of Ken Loach's film “Jimmy's Hall” in Leitrim, and speak to the filmmaker about his motivation in telling the story of the controversial Irish communist Jimmy Gralton. He talks to scriptwriter Paul Laverty and locals and actors about their involvement, and Professor Luke Gibbons on the historical importance of Jimmy Gralton in 1930s Ireland.
