Why Not Millstreet?

This is a one hour documentary on the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest which was held in Millstreet, a town in the south of Ireland. It covers how it came about, the work involved to make it happen, the local effort involved, visiting dignatories, and the climax of the song contest itself.

It was the first independently produced documentary to reach no. 1 in the RTE weekly ratings. There are lots of familiar faces throughout the programme, which is here subtitled in Norwegian!
