Actor Eamon Morrissey plays Arthur, a brother-in-law of Vinnie.
I suppose the whole thing is about some kind of creative force and using a creative force. And Arthur's creative force is not writing Ulysses or something. It's building a wall of death.
Producer John Kelleher talks about the efforts to promote film as a business. 'Eat the Peach' was made by Strongbow Productions.
This edition of 'Exhibit A' was broadcast on 2 December 1985. The reporter is Eamonn McCann.
