This government film gives us one town's take on The Troubles.
Will level headedness triumph? Hear how the peace and good neighbourliness of Downpatrick contrasts with the violence and tension prevalent elsewhere in Northern Ireland. Listen to the opinions of various professional men as they recount their experience of ‘The Troubles’ so far. The town seems relatively unscathed by the conflict and the overall impression is of a largely integrated and harmonious place. Despite the escalation of violence elsewhere, there is still hope that tensions will not disintegrate this community. Downpatrick’s level head approach is not unique. But will it be enough to ‘cool the hot tempers’ in the years to come?
