In this centenary special, I apply my own perspective to something a little more personal than normal. In 1916, an apparently unimportant uprising in Dublin, Ireland broke out. Little did its perpetrators know the influence that this event would have upon their country's history, as Ireland took 1916 as its inspiration, and shaped the Irish ethos on what the Rising had taught. Here, not only do I trace this history of such an event as significant as the 1916 Rising, but I also ask - was it worth it? Somewhat more controversial than you may be used to, this was also an immensely personal project, undertaken on the understanding that many misconceptions and falsehoods about this event in my country existed, and I had to put them right. Did I succeed? Some would say yes, others not so much, but I hope you will stick around and listen for yourself. Irish or not, the Rising profoundly challenges modern day sensibilities regarding the need of violence and the worthiness of a cause. Whatever your nationality, I hope you will find something here you can take with you, and take to heart.
