Irish singer Ann O'Dwyer, who played a housewife in this production, is being interviewed by actor Pat Nolan who is playing a reporter. An unidentified actor/extra playing a policeman is standing nearby. This episode was first broadcast on 11 April 1966.

'Insurrection' was an eight-part dramatised reconstruction of the events of Easter Week 1916, shown to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Easter Rising. The series was shown on eight consecutive nights on Telefís Éireann from 10-17 April 1966.
