Ivan Beshoff mutinied on the Russian Battleship Potemkin in 1905 and fought alongside the Irish rebels in the 1916 Easter Rising before establishing the famous Beshoff's Fish & Chip shop in Dublin. One episode of TG4's Scéalta Átha Cliath (Dublin Stories) documentary series was dedicated to Ivan Beshoff. To promote his show we brought back a piece of chip shop history and wrapped his chips in a bespoke newspaper, designed to look like it was from Beshoff's era. The main articles detailed the early history of Ivan Beshoff while other articles subtly alluded to some of the other Dublin stories featured in the series. A simple sign off told hungry readers where and when to watch the show.
