Over the last few years I've learned the tragedy of "The Hunger"was not quite as simple some claim. There were in fact English landlords who did what they could to help their starving tenants.. A major problem was a lack of infrastructure, such as roads. Near impossible to get relief to some areas.--or is that simply British revisionism?
Season 2 Episode 4 is about the famine and is the best, if saddest, episode of whole series so far and likely to remain so.
