Description

Fascinating documentary that provides a snapshot of Northern Ireland on the brink of The Troubles. 

A compelling analysis of the complicated dynamic between religion and politics in Northern Ireland. Pivotal political figures of the day - such as Prime Minister Terence O’Neill, the Reverend Ian Paisley, Gerry Fitt and John Hume - are interviewed. The documentary provides an intriguing picture of Northern Ireland at a pivotal moment in its history and the prevailing attitudes of the time.
