***Vincent Woods, Arts Tonight presenter, has just been named Speech Broadcaster of the Year 2013 at the PPI radio awards!***
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.
Art Tonight with Vincent Woods is a weekly indepth programme of culture and the arts in Ireland and internationally.
