This documentary on one of the key figures in Irish history traces Parnell's career from his background as Irish Protestant landowner to the pinnacle of his power at Westminster as leader of the Irish people. Parnell's rise was as brilliant as his fall was tragic; for a decade, he blazed like a comet across the Irish and British political sky: idolized by the Irish, hated by Tory England, admired by Gladstone, blinded by love, he was dead at 45. Scripted by Prof. J.J. Lee and narrated by Barry McGovern, this program follows the story of this proud and aloof and brilliant politician, known in his day as "the uncrowned King of Ireland"-the human story as well as the political one, including his passionate love affair with Kitty O'Shea-and the political catastrophe that ensued after his fall
