Give Up Yer Aul Sins is based on the Academy Award® nominated short film by Brown Bag Films. The episodes humorously re-enact original recordings of Dublin schoolrooms in the 1960s made by Peig Cunningham and subsequently rediscovered and released by EMI. In each episode, a documentary crew arrives to film the activities of the classroom. The teacher chooses children to retell, in their own imaginative way, the bible stories they have learnt.
