The programme charts Allan's search to understand Hurst's creative and psychological development from an East Belfast blacksmith family, to the cruel slaughter of Brian's regiment on the slopes of Gallipoli in the First World War, to Hollywood and, eventually, Belgravia in London, from where he directed films such as the classic Scrooge (1951) and the box office blockbusters of their times Malta Story (1953) , Tom Brown's Schooldays (1952) and Theirs is the Glory (1946). Allan discovers that Brian's Ourselves Alone (1936) - a story of love set during the Irish War of Independence - was censored in the Republic and banned completely in Northern Ireland and that his On the Night of the Fire (1939) now receives significant artistic and critical acclaim.
