| Background on the film
Just a small correction on the above. The voices of the children in the "Give up yer aul sins" series are real. They are taken from recordings of children in their religious studies classes made in an inner city Dublin school during the 1960s. Their teacher introduced a cassette recorder as an incentive to the children to learn the Bible stories with the suggestion that they'd be on the radio if they did a good job. The recordings were forgotten about for thirty years before being discovered again. Excerpts were played on Irish radio and touched a cord with listeners remembering a now distant Ireland. EMI secured the rights to release them on CD and eight years after that animator Cathal Gaffney together with Brown Bag films begin to animate the collection.
