Irish Film-Doc about Ireland's Most Ancient Bog Body Completes Production
21 Nov 2013 : by Julie Browne
Ned Kelly, Keeper of Antiquities at the National Museum of Ireland, examines the bog body in Cashel, Co. Laois.
A new Northern Irish documentary ‘4000 Year Old Cold Case: The Body in the Bog’ has completed post-production.

The documentary follows the forensic investigation of the ancient body found in an Irish peat bog - Cashel Man.

He was discovered by a Bord na Mona peat worker, in Cashel, Co Laois, in 2011. The find instantly became a national news story as The National Museum of Ireland began a multi-disciplinary investigation of the remains.

International scientists and archaeologists convened to Dublin to investigate the remains. Contributors include Ned Kelly, Keeper of Antiquities at the National Museum of Ireland, and Irish State Pathologist, Dr Marie Cassidy.

Their work took two years, and cameras from Derry based independent TV company, 360 Production, followed the team from day one in their investigation.

360 Productions specialise in internationally co-produced specialist factual programmes. Previous productions include ‘Titanic with Len Goodman’, ‘James May’s Things You Need to Know’, ‘Factomania’ and ‘Dig WWII’.

The documentary is narrated by Irish actress and writer Olwen Fouéré (‘This Must Be The Place’, ‘The Other Side of Sleep’)

The Company’s creative director, Donegal man John Farren, exectively produced the documentary. Dubliner Edward Hart produced and directed the documentary.

Derry Director of Photography Mark McCauley shot the project and it was cut by freelance offline editor Zoe Ellis at Piranha Bar in Dublin.

Graphics and visual effects were completed by 360 Productions led by Bob Price and Anthony Nicholson.

Irish actress and writer Olwen Fouére (‘This Must Be The Place’, ‘The Other Side of Sleep’) provides narration.

‘4000 Year Old Cold Case: The Body in the Bog’ will air on BBC 4 next week on Thursday 28th November at 9pm.
