On this week's Insider Podcast, we spoke to Risteard O'Domhnaill, director of landmark Irish documentary The Pipe and his most recent work, Atlantic.

The documentary follows the story of three communities - Ireland, Norway and Newfoundland - and the effects of globalisation, over-fishing and the oil industry has on them. O'Domhnaill's work on The Pipe grew out of his own involvement with filming the scenes at Rossport for news organisation.

However, with Atlantic, Risteard O'Domhnaill approached the documentary and his subject with a much more wider approach. We talked about The Pipe, funding for documentaries like Atlantic, the politics behind the story and how his own work outside of Atlantic.
