THE first of a two-part radio documentary about the Irish in London will air on RTÉ Radio 1 this week.

The Green Line and The Green Cab are produced by Irish Post journalist Robert Mulhern for RTÉ’s Documentary on One series.

Each programme will look at the Irish experience in the English capital through the stories of ordinary people.

Speaking about the documentary Mr Mulhern said: “This is a collective story linking a street drinker, boxer, singer, factory worker, police officer, music promoter and a construction worker who followed his daughter to London.

“But that’s just a small part of it. The Irish experience here has changed — how people work, live and how often they go home. I was lucky to find people with interesting, sad and funny stories that give a flavour of that experience.”

The Green Line airs on Saturday, May 4 at 6pm on RTÉ Radio 1 followed by The Green Cab on May 11.
