The Murderer, Me and My Family Tree

When Dylan Haskins was eleven years old he and his Dad were driving along an Irish road, when a voice boomed out of the radio: “James Haskins, you have been sentenced to death by hanging.” Dylan’s Dad almost crashed the car. Years later, Dylan sets out to unravel a family mystery, and tries to finish what his late father began by answering the question: Is he related to the last man hanged in Wicklow Gaol? And what was the heinous crime that James Haskins committed in order to deserve the ultimate punishment in 1843. (First broadcast 2015)
