The following is a list of television programmes on the Northern Ireland conflict, which were broadcast between 1968 and 1978. The information contained in this list is based on the article 'Ten Years of TV Coverage', Belfast Bulletin, Spring 1979, No.6, pp20-25, published by the Belfast Workers Research Unit. The following note appeared with the list:
This list includes only programmes that were devoted wholly to Northern Ireland, or, in the case of magazine current affairs programmes, editions that were devoted primarily to the subject. It contains most of the major British programmes about the North networked between October 1968 and December 1978, but it does not pretend to be exhaustive. (Belfast Workers Research Unit, 1979; p20)
Each of the entries below contains:
  • the date of transmission (in bold),
  • the name of the television company (plain text),
  • the name of the television programme (in italics) - or type of programme,
  • the title of the television programme - where given (underlined), and
  • a brief description of the programme content (in parenthesis).
It should be noted that this list of programmes does not contain any that were broadcast by Radio Telefís Eireann (RTE).

Generally speaking, someone searching for programmes covering particular events are likely to find them among the schedules for the first few weeks following the date in question. For major events, such as 'Bloody Sunday', there are likely to programmes on the topic at the time of significant anniversaries.
