The Rolling Wave

The Rolling Wave

200 years ago Napoleon met his Waterloo in 1815 - which ended his rule as Emperor of the French and marked the end of all his life's ambitions. The connection between France and traditional Irish music and song will be remembered in tonight's programme.

About The Show
