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 4: The Holy Clay

It seems Neville can’t stay away from the island that haunts his every waking moment. A chance encounter on the ferry to Tory offers a new opportunity for justice and Neville finally finds a solicitor willing to listen to his story, but the strain of so many years spent searching for answers puts huge pressure on his marriage.

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