A new radio documentary tells the story behind the making of Stanley Kubrick’s movie ‘Barry Lyndon’ in Cahir, 40 years ago.

Made for the Autumn Season of Documentary on Newstalk 106-108, it is produced by Pavel Barter and was first broadcast last week, but you can listen back on the station’s website.

In the summer of 1973 Stanley Kubrick arrived in Ireland to make his period masterpiece Barry Lyndon. The following January the director fled Ireland.

‘Castles, Candles and Kubrick’ tells, for the first time, the story behind the making of Barry Lyndon in Ireland, featuring interviews with cast and crew from the film. Why did Kubrick flee? And why is the movie considered the greatest movie of all time by directors such as Martin Scorsese?
