Seoda (the Irish for Treasures) is a new series of old films from the Irish Film Archive. Seen now for the first time in many decades, the films have been selected for their outstanding cultural, historical and entertainment value. They have also been chose for their accessibility and relevance to contemporary audiences and show-case the very best of this priceless national collection. The eleven films in the series date from 1948 to 1970 and cover a broad range of topics including emigration; politics; personal saving; TB; diphtheria; architecture. The programme themes are deeply rooted in Irish culture, heritage and experience. The series will allow you to: travel alongside President Kennedy on his 1963 cavalcade visiting Dublin, Wexford and Galway; take the last tram from Howth in the company of Cyril Cusack; contrast the bustle of 1950s Dublin (Portrait of Dublin) with the quietly abandoned village of Crookhaven in Cork; and to enjoy the wonderful renditions of traditional music keenly observed by Louis Marcus in Flea Ceoil (1957).
