Shot List

Francis Williams asks Prime Minister Brookborough (Sir Peter Brooke) about the rise of IRA violence in England. Clip jumps to end where Brookborough is asked to tell viewers in Britain what people in Ulster are like. He dismisses cliches such as 'pigs in the parlour'. He says that Ulster men are hardy, grand, self-reliant and individualistic race of people, the women are the best looking in the world and we have the greatest industries.
