As Irish rebels prepared for the 1916 Easter Rising, they were watched.

Two spies codenamed Granite and Chalk had infiltrated the ranks of those planning to declare an independent Irish republic. This documentary digs into declassified British intelligence files to bring the world of 1916 espionage to life.

'Granite & Chalk' tells the little-known story of how Ireland came within a hair's breadth of a completely different history.
