The House That Vanished – Episode 2: The Real King of Tory


A compelling five-part mystery based on the true story of one man’s search for justice on a remote Irish island, blending documentary and drama.

Episode 2: The Real King of Tory

Neville sets off on a journey around Ireland in search of clues, but the shock of discovering his house has vanished begins to affect his health. Feeling like he’s trapped in a nightmare, Neville recalls the peace and tranquility he first found on Tory – and a film he made years before seems to offer a strange prophecy about what may have happened to his house.

The House that Vanished features documentary interviews with key people involved in Neville’s astonishing story alongside dramatised scenes written by Jan Carson.

Presented by Siobhán McSweeney
