Hanging Gale
The four-part BBC1 miniseries The Hanging Gale was set in 1846, the year of the Irish potato famine. As starvation stared them in the face, a group of farming families banded together to survive. Among these hardy souls were the Phelan Brothers (played by the real-life McGann brothers), who struggled to save their family farm despite the persecution of a cruel British land agent. Filmed on-location in Ireland, The Hanging Gale was initially telecast from May 14 to June 4, 1995. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
