Missing You is a six part series about the lengths the Irish Diaspora will go to maintain and nurture relationships with their loved ones in spite of vast geographical distance.
A six-part observational documentary, Missing You captures their stories and witnesses their relationships all through the confines of video calls. Viewers see firsthand the intimacy, the honesty, the highs of everyday life, the lows, as well as the complexities of missing home.
Missing You is unique - it is the first series in the world to be created exclusively from video calls, user generated stills and videos. The programme gives the audience unfiltered and unprecedented access to the participant's lives and shows that, though they may be far apart physically, their emotional ties remain as strong as ever.
Over the course of six episodes, viewers will follow a number of Irish people, far from home, as they keep in touch with their loved ones. Missing You records the patterns of everyday life from Libya to Laois, Boston to Cork, and Pearse Street to Sydney, and places in between including Holland, France, Cyprus, London, New Zealand, Arizona, Abu Dhabi, and South Korea.
By recording the video conversations of our group, as they call home to their friends and family, we experience everything with them, from big announcements to unexpected moments of everyday magic - a wife far from her husband's side; a brother and sister experiencing the cycle of life; and a daughter introducing her new son to her family back home.

“I'll Be Missing You” is a song recorded by American rapper Puff Daddy and American singer Faith Evans, featuring R&B group 112, in memory of fellow Bad Boy Records artist Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace, who was murdered on March 9, 1997. Released as the second single from Puff Daddy and the Family's No Way Out album, “I'll Be Missing You” samples The Police's 1983 hit song “Every Breath You Take”, with an interpolated chorus sung by Evans. The track also features a spoken intro over a choral version of Samuel Barber's “Adagio for Strings”.Another interpolation found in the song is the Christian 'O Come Let Us Adore Him'. In 1998, the song won the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. The single spent 11 weeks on top of the Billboard Hot 100 during the summer of 1997. With worldwide sales likely over 8 million, including shipments of 3 million copies in the United States and over 1 million in both Germany and the United Kingdom, the song has become one of the best-selling singles of all time. As of February 2016, it is rated the 99th biggest song of all time in the US, according to Billboard.
