Castles, Candles and Kubrick - The story of Barry Lyndon will air on Wednesday 1st January 2014 at 8am-9am.

In the summer of 1973, director Stanley Kubrick (Dr. Strangelove, 2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket) arrived in Ireland to make his period masterpiece Barry Lyndon.

On an overcast night the following January, the director fled Ireland on a ferry from Dun Laoghaire. Within 48 hours the entire production also abandoned their stations.

Produced by Pavel Barter, 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.

What role did Ireland play in Barry Lyndon? Did Kubrick's preceding film, Clockwork Orange, affect the production? What was it like working with arguably the greatest, notoriously perfectionist, director of the 20th century? Why did Kubrick flee Ireland? And why is Barry Lyndon considered the greatest movie of all time by fellow directors such as Martin Scorsese and Lars Von Trier?

Castles, Candles and Kubrick is a radio documentary produced by Pavel Barter, and aired on Newstalk 106-108 on Saturday October 19th at 7:00 AM and Sunday October 20th at 6:00 PM as part of Documentary on Newstalk’s Autumn Season. 

Castles, Candles and Kubrick features contributions from Brian W. Cook (The Wicker Man, The Shining), Luke Quigley (Braveheart, In The Name of The Father), Terry Clegg (Gandhi, Out of Africa), Patti Podesta (Memento), and Gay Hamilton (The Duelists).
