1967 documentary profile of Rev. Ian Paisley.
Rev. Ian Paisley, is he a new Martin Luther - a true defender of the Protestant faith - or a "strutting turkey cock in the animal farm politics of Ulster?"
Explore the escalating tensions in Northern Ireland and the central role that Rev. Ian Paisley would play as a lightning rod for Unionism. The film provides a brief synopsis of the history of Ulster - from the Battle of The Boyne in 1690 to the Partition of Ireland in 1922 - and the contemporary background to Paisley’s rise to prominence.
