A programme about Frongoch – the prison camp in North Wales where about 1,800 Irish rebels were interned in 1916 – will be broadcast on ITV1 Wales in the new year.

Frongoch – University of Revolution is a two-part series providing a definitive account of a crucial yet neglected episode in Irish and Welsh history...

...Inside the former German prisoner of war camp the Irish language was forbidden. The series shows how inmates informed their comrades where they’d hidden cigarettes and food for them.
