Shot List

SDLP Leader, John Hume addresses students from the Dominican and Victoria Colleges, Belfast. Hume is then seen passing through crowds. Hume, at press conference, states that all of the parties are responsible for Northern Ireland's peace process. UUP leader, David Trimble, at press conference in Denver, is cautious about the presumption of peace at this moment. The wives of the two politicians are interviewed and express satisfaction. Trimble and Hume are shown on-stage with Bono and U2 at the Waterfront, Belfast. Trimble is then shown at a party meeting, and then Gerry Adams, Sinn Fein leader, giving a radio interview. The commentary suggests that there is much regret among Nationalists that Adams was not selected for the Peace Prize.
