Cáillte sa Chogadh (Lost in the War) on TG4

The Irish language channel TG4 is showing a documentary tomorrow evening (Sunday) at 9.30pm entitled Cáillte sa Chogadh (Lost in the War), as part of the Cogar series. Here's the blurb from the channel's listings site at

Former teacher Phil Stuart sets out to uncover the story behind a long lost family heirloom, a journey which follows that of his uncle Private Willie McGaw, to Scotland and on to the battlefields of Northern France during World War One, where Phil finds the final resting place of Willie.

I did a wee bit of research on this for the Belfast based production company Tobar Productions, based at the Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich, so looking forward to seeing it! I've been advised by Michaeline Donnelly that it should be streamed on the TG4 website ( at the time of transmission, and then available subsequently on its media player.
