Johnny Cash accompanied by the Tennessee Three and June Carter plays twelve venues in ten nights across Ireland , from ballrooms in Mallow and Dundalk to Mullingar and Athy. The group also plays a big concert in the National Stadium in Dublin. By the time he arrives Johnny has already had a huge Irish hit with the single Forty Shades of Green and is an established star having sold eleven million records worldwide. Johnny Cash’s 1963 tour of Ireland comes at a difficult time for the singer, he was struggling with addiction to alcohol and amphetamines , his voice was problematic and his record company were unhappy with him. Johnny Cash was accompanied on the tour by June Carter, with whom he had just begun a relationship. It was a secret affair as both Johnny and June were married at the time. The tour came at a time when Ireland had just celebrated the visit of President John F. Kennedy, Sean Lemass was Taoiseach, economic growth was at 4% and optimism was in the air. Newly discovered material featured in the documentary shows a different side to Johnny Cash and reveals how his long relationship with Ireland began through the interactions with his audience during the tour. The documentary hears from fans of Johnny Cash who attended the gigs and from Eileen Reid who played support for part of the tour and from Johnny, June and the Tennessee Three.

  • Blonde Hair, Blue Eyes
    Documentary On One, RTÉ

    In October 2013 a blonde haired, blue eyed child was seized by police from a Roma camp in Athens, Greece. They suspected she had been abducted. The mystery of her identity prompted eight days of near hysteria which spread across the globe. By the time her mystery was solved, Irish authorities had wrongly removed two children from their homes and their parents. On Monday, 21st October 2013, an Irish journalist spotted a message that had been posted to the Facebook account of his show on Irish TV3. The message said that a child with blonde hair and blue eyes was living in the home of a Roma family on her estate in Tallaght, County Dublin. The author of the post said she suspected the child had been abducted and used to claim social welfare. The journalist passed it on to An Garda Siochana (Irish Police). Before the day was out, the child, a seven year old blonde haired, blue eyed girl had been taken from her home by Gardai and placed in care. But that wasn’t all. The following day a two year old Roma boy, also with blonde hair and blue eyes was placed in the back of a squad car on his own and taken from his family’s home in Athlone. Both children had had anomalies in documentation but both were removed while Gardai investigated whether they were living with their rightful parents. On the very next day, DNA tests in both cases confirmed that the children had been taken from their rightful patents by the authorities and were immediately returned. A huge mistake had been made. A year later - following a report by the Irish Children’s Ombudsman, Emily Logan- the Prime Minister, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Garda Commissioner all apologised to the two families. They have since been compensated by the state. There was a context to this. Something had happened the previous Wednesday that had put the world on tenterhooks. On that day. Greek police seized a girl, again with the same colouring, from a Roma camp outside Athens. She was living with a family who were not her parents. They put her in the care of a charity called The Smile of the Child Foundation and gave her the pseudonym ‘Maria.’ That event had summoned up a wave of hysteria that gripped the international media for eight days. The parents of dozens of missing children around the world claimed the child must be theirs. By Friday the 25thOctober it had been established that Maria had not been abducted. Her Bulgarian mother had been found and confirmed that she gave Maria to the Roma couple in Greece because she was too poor to look after her. And so the case was closed but by the time the dust had settled, two Irish Roma children and their families had been traumatized by events that seemed driven by the fact that neither child looked like their parents. Both children had an albino gene, well known to be in the Roma community. It simply gave them…blonde hair, blue eyes.

  • White Noise

    What happens when sounds exist inside your head? How do you cope with an internal soundtrack from which you can’t escape and only you can hear? These questions are explored in White Noise, a new Documentary On One production that investigates the mysterious world of people who suffer from tinnitus and the impact it has on their lives. Tinnitus, currently an incurable condition, is the experience of hearing sounds in the brain that don’t have an external source. According to documentary maker Orla Higgins, ‘One in ten of the Irish population have tinnitus and one in a hundred people are seriously affected by it. These figures are also reflected internationally where it is estimated that over 300 million people have the condition which can have a debilitating effect on people’s work, their relationships and how they live their lives with this secret symphony going on in their heads.’ Higgins was prompted to make the documentary when she herself was diagnosed with tinnitus almost two years ago. ‘I began to notice an intermittent sound in my head that, over time, became a constant presence. You’ll hear tinnitus sufferers talk about ‘their sound’ and mine resembles stormtrooper boots marching on loose gravel, if you can imagine that. Then I began to wonder who else had it and how could they cope with the unwelcome and unnerving sounds in their heads without it driving them over the edge?’ She collaborated with RTÉ producer Kevin Bew, who also suffers from the condition, to recreate the sounds of the tinnitus experience and explore the science surrounding it. Tinnitus sufferers hear a wide variety of these sounds from whines, crackles and whooshes to static, dentist drills and pounding jackhammers. Higgins explains that one of the challenges is that we can’t understand what people with tinnitus are going through unless we have experienced it ourselves. With this in mind, the documentary takes an innovative approach to the subject by placing the listener in the position of someone with the condition. A group of volunteers worked with sound designer Damian Chennells and Audiologist Tasso Papadopoulos from DeafHear (an Irish charity that provides services to people with hearing loss) to recreate these phantom sounds for the audience. There is no agreed cause and no agreed cure for the condition and the documentary tells the story of Sean O’Reilly whose life was turned upside down in the space of a week with the onset of sudden and unexplained tinnitus. It explores his journey of recovery as he works to reclaim his life. Fortunately, the vast majority of people manage to eventually adjust to these phantom sounds they hear but sometimes catastrophic tinnitus takes its toll. It becomes too much for some and the listener hears from the letter written by Welshman James Ivor Jones who was driven to take his own life because of his tinnitus in 2015. Along the way the listener also gets an insight in to the weird and wonderful world of the brain and the hearing senses from David Baguley, Professor of Hearing Sciences at the University of Nottingham. A lot of people with tinnitus, once diagnosed, are left to develop an understanding and way of coping by themselves and this proves to be one of the biggest obstacles to recovery. ‘There is no agreed cure at the moment’, says Kevin Brew, ‘but we take a look at the different ways people can cope with the condition. We also hear from ENT consultant Brendan Conlon about some ground-breaking Irish research currently taking place at St. James Hospital, Dublin that might hopefully form part of the answer when it comes to a cure in the future.’
