Hard Rock & Water

hard_rock_and_waterAward-winning writer Lisa Moore embarks on a quest to discover the essence of nationhood. Sixty years ago Iceland and Newfoundland were both desperately poor places. Then in a bold move Iceland separated from Denmark in 1944. Five years later Newfoundland voluntarily gave up its nationhood and joined Canada. Both countries at a crossroads chose very different routes and landed in very different places. Features interviews with comedian Mary Walsh, former Icelandic President Vigdis Finnbogadottir, and others – all set against the raw splendour of these two North Atlantic islands.
