Lyra | Preview (Channel 4)

An emotive, intimate portrait of the remarkable young journalist Lyra Mckee, whose murder in 2019 sent shockwaves throughout the world.

Directed by her close friend, BAFTA-winning Alison Millar, the film tells the story of a life fearlessly committed to truth and justice for forgotten crimes, through a rich archive of audio recordings, home videos, field notes and interviews with those who knew her and loved her.

The result is a complex picture of Northern Ireland's political history, and brings into sharp focus the ways in which the 1998 Good Friday agreement - with its promised end to violence for future generations - has struggled to be fully realised.

Lyra airs Saturday 15th April at 9:25pm on Channel 4.
