Rebel Heart is a 2001 British Television drama miniseries starring James D’Arcy as the fictional Ernie Coyne, an Irish nationalist. It is in four parts and set during the Irish War of Independence from 1916 (The Easter Rising) until the end of the Civil War. Coyne idolised Michael Collins, thus Collins featured frequently, both as a leader and as a friend. The series generated a large amount of controversy before its release.
The idea for a series about the Easter Rising and Irish Civil War first emerged in 1994. Despite most major characters being Irish, the leading roles were mostly played by British-born actors. There was a certain amount of controversy over inaccuracies. Also, at the time it was released was just after the peace process. David Trimble attacked the corporation for making a series that could be used as propaganda for the IRA
