Across the countryside in Ireland there are roads which go nowhere, and there are houses nobody lives in. The thousands of traveller less roads and empty homes have a singular story behind them. This week, in the sixth episode of the series, Ireland Untravelled, we uncover the greatest single event in Irish history - The Potato Famine. Tune in, to discover how the Famine irrevocably changed the very character of Ireland, and maybe even the genetics of its inhabitants and its bizzare connection with pre partition undivided Bengal.
