This three part documentary series, written and narrated by Paul Williams, tells the story of some of the pivotal moments in the growth of organised crime in Ireland. Telling a story that starts in the 1960s and runs through to the present day, Bad Fellas uses the testimonies of eye-witnesses be they Justice Ministers, Gardai, victims of crime, or ordinary citizens, in order to recount seminal moments in the growth of organised crime, as well as examining the reactions to that growth by Government, Gardai, and the broader society. Tonight on show; how the explosion of paramilitary crime in the early 1970s ended an age of innocence and spawned a culture of the gun in Ireland.
