Programme Title:
Richard Fallon
Description:
(In Irish with English subtitles) This is the first programme in a series that recounts the stores of Garda officers killed on duty in the Republic. The first is Garda Dick Fallon killed by Republican splinter group Saor Eire. The programme begins with a look at the history of the Garda and the fact it's an unarmed police force, yet between 1942 and 1922 16 officers were killed in the line of duty, then for 28 years no more were killed, until April 3rd 1970 when Dick Fallon became the first Garda killed during the Troubles, he had 5 children. Film clip/photos shown, his son Richard Fallon recalls the day of his death. On Arran Quay, at Dublin's Bank of Ireland an armed robbery began, reconstruction shown, Gardas Pat Hunter and Paul Firth and Dick Fallon answered the call, Firth and Fallon saw the robbers leave, Fallon was shot dead as he chased them. His son recalls hearing news on the radio, then the family was told. A film group shows Saor Eire members training, they had robbed 19 banks between 1967-70. Garda Special Branch Officer Mick Egan profiles Saor Eire and its connections, speculation at the time suggested they were allowed to exist by Special Branch who go info from them on the IRA, journalist Poilin Ni Chiarain comments, the Garda issued suspects names even before they finished gathering forensic evidence, names including Frank Keane, photos shown. Keane complained in a letter to the press but was arrested in London and extradited, Garda Paul Firth claimed Keane was the gunman who shot R Fallon, using a photo, but bank workers said the men were masked, a lawyer explains the slack ID rules used in 1970, defence lawyer Sean McBride cross examined Firth, the jury found Keane not guilty, newspaper clips shown. The Garda continued to search for Saor Eire members Sean Morrisey and Joe Dillon, Garda Mick Egan recalls the shooting as he arrested Joe Dillon, a year after Keane's trial, Garda P Firth identified Joe Dillon, this too was a complete farce, reconstruction shown of the event, but the State had fingerprint evidence as well, defence lawyer Sean McBride pointed out the standard of evidence was inferior to Scotland Yard. Garda denied the fingerprints belonged to a Garda officer not the accused. However 5 years later after the PIRA killed British/Ambassador Chris Ewart-Biggs, a fingerprint found on a Garda helmet was the same fingerprint, a lawyer explains the case. Dillon and Morrisey were found not guilty. The government then removed jury courts and the Special Criminal Courts were introduced, the lawyer then highlights the faults in the Garda case, they didn't gather up the spent cartridges, the crime scene wasn't sealed off and the bizarre release of suspect names within hours, was like a warning to them to run. The programme then shows Garda Fallon's funeral on April 6th 1970, his son recalls his father and the funeral, then youngest son Finian Fallon recalls that day and the burden on his mother that day and the long term effect on her, film clip of her recalls all the public murmurings around the murder and the 1970 Arms trials, 3 weeks after Fallon's death, government/Ministers Charles Haughey and Neil Blaney were charged with illegally importing arms for the IRA's use, they were acquitted on a technicality. Finian Fallon comments on the connection of the Arms trial to his father's killing, after 30 years rule expired he still says no official record was found in government papers released about the murder. A journalist reviews the political turmoil of those times in Eire and N Ireland. Finian Fallon explains why he thinks government secrecy surrounds his father's death. The government and terror groups had a common endeavour to supply arms to the North. Both brothers want the truth.

A Game of Two Halves
Description:
Presented by Mandy McAuley the programme deals with the political row that has broken out between the Northern and Southern football associations in Ireland over which country players born in N Ireland should play for, programme begins with a summary of the current positions of North and South, then M McAuley asks former internationals who played for NI about their viewpoints. First Gerry Armstrong, then views of sports writer Steven Beacom, currently NI is ranked above the Republic, IFA Chief Howard Wells comments, then DUP Sports Minister Edwin Poots who recently attended his first GAA match, speaking in Stormont, says it's wholly inappropriate for the Republic to poach NI players, particularly those from one section of the community, but SDLP MLA Pat Ramsey says Poots views are an attempt to remove some Irishness. Article 15 of the FIFA rules seems to support the Republic position. Edwin Poots and Pat Ramsey swap points on this issue. The story began 3 years ago when Derry rising star Darren Gibson who plays for Man Utd opted to play for the Republic, his uncle Paul McLoughlin explains why he made this choice. Then another Derry born player Felix Healey recalls his time as a NI player, in his time playing for the Republic was never an issue, Catholics played for NI, he feels it's all been political, Falls Rd man Gerry Armstrong who played for NI, recalls that successful team under Terry Neill who recalls Pat Jennings sharing with G Best, neither of whom was poached by the Republic. G Armstrong comments on laying for NI. Back in Derry Kevin Deary chose the Republic while Mark McCrystal plays for NI. Both men comment on their choices as their careers are profiled. Then Felix Healey says Derry players weren't chased by NI officials, but since 1940s only 3 players born in NI have played for the Republic's A Squad, D Gibson is the 3rd Howard Wells didn't know these stats. In 2006 NI FA complained to FIFA about Eire FA poaching, but FIFA ruled the Good Friday Agreement permitted players making their own choices on nationality. H Wells gives his reaction to this, before Xmas FIFA appeared to back track saying status quo would prevail, both sides claimed victory. Mark Lawrenson, a Republic International comments on FIFA, as like Pontus Pilate. The Irish Republic FA would only discuss the matter by e-mail and not on camera, they say the choice still rests with the player, but Howard Wells rejects this. Terry Neill recalls Jack Charlton's poaching of English plays like Terry Mancini, M Lawrenson recalls playing for the Republic as his granny was from Waterford, FIFA did bring in rule 901 to stop players being bought by wealthy countries, the rule is explained, but Pat Ramsey says this has nothing to do with Ireland, Eamon McCann disagrees. In 1990s G Armstrong recalls young nationalists fears, film clip shows 2002 sectarian abuse of N Lennon at Windsor Pk including death threats, Eamonn McCann recalls the effect of this, Felix Healey recalls abuse he got at Windsor Pk and the Oval, then a vox pop of Falls Rd people's views, then views in East Belfast, attempts are being made to remove sectarianism in football here profile of Setanta Cup, all Ireland soccer event. Fran Gavin of Irish FA in Dublin comments, then Stafford Reynolds of Glentoran comments on all Ireland League idea, then Felix Healey's views on that League, then Eamon McCann sarcastic comments on button polishers.

Introduced by Noel Thompson he begins with first Thompson interview of the SF Deputy First Minister M McGuiness since he came to power last May 07. He begins by asking him why was this week's passing of the Executive budget and its plans for government so vitriolic, M McGuiness replies he was totally disappointed at the behaviour of the SDLP, which is begrudging he says they want the Executive to fall, he explains his opinion, or how the SDLP behaved at Finance meeting, they were in disarray he claims. McGuiness says the establishment of power sharing in NI, the North/South and East West bodies, has all propelled NI out of the past, these will all provide a motivation to work towards a United Ireland says McGuiness, he also highlights all Ireland energy policy, gas pipe and intertrade as steps in this direction, this will stimulate debate in the coming years. He claims to want to make N Ireland a completely entity from what it was in the past, he believes he's part of a process that has banished discrimination and injustice forever, he's then asked without these things surely NI can exist for ever, as they were peoples motivation to unify NI. McGuiness says that's not true as people also care about their Irishness, he mentions the Irish Language Act negotiations. On the Victims commissioners appointments he's asked how could he and Paisley not have fallen out over this issue, given their different views says on those PIRA Vols killed at Loughgall, McGuiness points out the use of "different language" here, even in news programmes here, relating to different deaths, he says he will use sensitive language when talking about this issue with Paisley, recognising different opinions. On his relationship with Paisley called the Chuckle Brothers, McGuiness says both have tried to deal with each over from the person they met on May 8th 07, they have a cordial, civilised relationship, which is about the future not the past, McGuiness is then asked how would he get on with Peter Robinson if Paisley retired. On the devolution of Police and Justice which SF want to happen by May, M McGuiness says for the success of Policing it's vital we see that happen. He explains why he sees it like this. On the Paul Quinn and Robert McCartney murders, M McGuiness denies SF protects criminal gangs he says they have sympathy for and have helped the McCartney family. N Thompson reminds him while giving evidence at the Bloody Sunday Inquiry he refused to break his IRA code of honour, McGuiness says it wasn't the IRA who killed McCartney, or Paul Quinn, he wants these people before courts and in prison. He's then asked does he think G Adams might retire as he seems to have lost his way in the new system McGuiness says absolutely not as he is the single most important person since the beginning of the Peace Process and its undisputed leader. In the If You Ask Me Spot, journalist M O'Doherty comments on the huge archives that tell the stones of the victims of the Troubles here, he says there are secrets but here is no murder unrecorded, the book Lost Lives is a monument already to the dead he claims and we didn't need a commission to compile that, as for justice, that's what a lot of people want he claims, but commissioners can't order prisoners back to jail, he mentions having a book of offenders created like lost lives. In the next piece Noel Thompson introduces a film report from Julia Paul on a low key by-election being held in Dromore, Co Down after a UUP Cllr Tyrone Howe resigned, his fellow Carol Black (UUP) comments, then Paul Stewart (DUP) views, then Keith Harbinson (TUV) followed by the analysis of Newsletter's political editor Stephen Dempster. Then SF's Dessie Ward gives their opinion, followed by the SDLP's John Drake, then Alliance and Green Party viewpoints. This is the first election since May last year, so it's results will be interesting. Comic taxi driver routine. (Thurs)

Justice Lost
Description:
This programme looks at the fallout following the collapse of the trial of Sth/Armagh man Sean Hoey on charges relating to the RIRA's 1998 Omagh bombing which killed 29 people. It begins with a montage of visual images from that day, Aug 15th 1998, and a selection of comments on the Police failures in the case. Last December the latest stage of the Omagh saga ended in farce and failure, now those on trial are the authorities themselves, as on Dec 20th Sean Hoey was acquitted. After the trial ends, relative Victor Barker comments outside the court criticising Ronnie Flanagan, the then RUC Chief Constable as appallingly inefficient. Det Ch/Superintendent Norman Baxter took over the investigation 5 years ago it's his officers who are accused of lying under oath and it's his team now in the dock. Ch/Superintendent Baxter talks to the press outside the court. The original RUC investigation was a disaster from the start in 2001 Police Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan exposed a catalogue of failures, these are listed by the programme, he offered to resign or commit suicide, Nuala O'Loan comments on her investigations, then current Chief Constable H Orde's views. Then Carol Radford recalls her younger brother Alan who died in the bombing, she feels she's living in a nightmare. At the heart of the case against Hoey was low copy DNA which was invented in Birmingham in 1999, the judge discredited the evidence on 2 fronts, there is no international agreement on the technique, and the test on Hoey also showed an English teenager could have been the bomber. Hoey's lawyer Peter Corrigan comments, then Paul Hackett of FSS/Birmingham defends the system used. Then Victor Barker comments on other failings made by those who were supposed to protect the evidence gathered, then Stan Brown the new head of Forensic Science in NI says lessons have been learned. The judge also branded the RUC gathering of evidence thoughtless and slapdash, Nuala O'Loan comments on the remark, then Kevin Skelton, a relative feels R Flanagan should resign his job in HM Inspector of Constabulary, he refused an interview. Victor Barker comments on his son James who would now have been 22 years old, and describes his feelings. Then a film clip shows Barker's recent meeting with R Flanagan in London, when Barker pushes Flanagan in front of a camera and tells him to make an apology now, which Flanagan won't do, then Barker comments on Flanagan's new job. Then Kevin Skelton gives his views on H Orde/s role, the programme asks were lies told in court to try and secure a conviction. Scenes of crime officer Fiona Cooper's role is profiled, photos shown, then Peter Corrigan comments, then Det Ch/Insp Phillip Marshall is profiled, the Judge said he attempted to deceive the court, Stan Brown comments on exhibits, Victor Barker and Peter Corrigan comment on accusation against N Baxter he knew of Marshall's lies. Kevin Skelton comments on his wife Philomena who died in the bombing, then Carol Radford highlights how low the families relationship with the police had sunk, Kevin Skelton agrees. PSNI Chief Constable H Orde gives his view on the mater. V Barker doubts Orde's credibility now too, the Victims Group are also at odds with the Policing Board, a recent TV clash between M Gallagher and Des Rea shows that, as the argue about the public inquiry option, Nuala O'Loan then Des Rea comment on review of evidence option. The M Gallagher views on the Police Board monitoring of Hoey trial, with Des Rea's comments. M Gallagher then talks about his son Aidan (21) who died in the bombing, and the effect of it all on the families, Victor Barker, Peter Corrigan comment on the PPS case, Gallagher and Orde also comment.

Description:
Introduced by Noel Thompson, he begins with a review of the result in yesterday's Dromore by-election which some have called the St Valentine's Day Massacre of the DUP, then in the studio the DUP MLA Edwin Poots denies they made a mistake in forcing this election by refusing to co-opt on a UUP Cllr, he claims the DUP did top the poll losing on the PR transfer and are the most popular local party. The Traditional Unionist Voice (TUV) leader Jim Allister says the DUP thought they would smash the TUV and that's what this election was all about he says the DUP vote fragmented from 50% to 28%, he says the TUV voice is not irrelevant, Edwin Poots then counters with statistics of his own saying the last time J Allister stood he got 50% now he's got only 19% and come 3rd. He predicts that Jim Allister will lose his MEP seat. E Poots asks what is TUV offering the electorate, he feels the DUP need to demonstrate better how devolution really works. He criticises the TUV super councils idea. Jim Allister says the UDP is out of touch with grass roots unionists who don't want SF I government here. He claims the IRA Army Council should go and Unionists feel betrayed by the DUP. E Poots calls him a politician of doom and gloom and lists things he believes the DUP has delivered, he says the IRA structures have been dismantled so says the IMC. J Allister says Poots sits in cabinet with possible members of the IRA Army Council, J Allister says the DUP allowed SF's C Ruane to run NI's education system, and let SF be equal in control of the executive, J Allister praises the TUV vote from a standing start, a protest against terrorist in Stormont, Allister wants voluntary coalition, share government not mandatory coalition with gunmen. E Poots says the NIO ministers were about to introduce 7 super councils, cross border bodies and an Irish Language Act, and he claims devolution was better than that. J Allister says direct rule government would be his choice over SF in government - anytime he adds. Poots then claims the Unionist people are getting delivery from the DUP and the TUV only focus on the optics and not on facts, the Unionists are in the majority in the Stormont Executive. Jim Allister feels SF still threaten the NI people, in that they'll go back to dark days if they don't get what they want. Jim Allister also feels the current system needs an opposition. In the If You Ask Me Spot, Lindsay Allan comments on the pay rise for MLAs here from their current £40,000 plus expenses a year. He asks that our MLA numbers be cut in half, as we are over governed here. He lists other way of spending the savings. In the next item Noel Thompson introduces a film report from Julia Paul looking at what happens to politicians here when they fall out with heir parties, is it about principles or is it just a career move, she begins with the case of former DUP deputy chair of its Youth Association Edward Hanna, he's now joined the UUP, then on Monday the Alliance party showed off former SDLP man Andrew Muir at Stormont, last year Jim Allister left the DUP and formed the TUV, also in 2002 Ivan Davis left the DUP for the UUP and Peter Weir went the other way. Bel/Tel journalist Christ Thornton comments on the reason for switches as he sees them, then Belfast Metropolitan College's Henry Bell gives his views. Back in 2004, A Foster, N Bearne and J Donaldson left the UUP for the DUP, as Donaldson said he blamed Trimble, Chris Thornton comments on this and the voters views.

Paisley Resignation
Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers the programme begins with Paisley Snr talking to Mark Davenport, he lists his achievements and outlines why he decided to quit while he's ahead, after the Investment Conference on 7-9th May this year, he denies he was under pressure to resign from within the DUP, he feels younger people should now do their bit, he denies that allegations about Paisley Jnr played a part in his decision and says his son had done nothing wrong and was picked on, solely to get at him. Paisley refused to endorse any particular DUP member as his successor as that's up to the Party he says. Asked to pick out the high point of his career Paisley chooses firstly winning the North Antrim Westminster seat with the biggest vote ever recorded, and holding it, he says he has no regrets about last May's deal with Sinn Fein, he says without it we would have had more Dublin rule forced on N Ireland, he says today the United Ireland argument is almost off the political agenda. In a further film report Declan Lawn looks at the reasons for the Big Man's departure, beginning with his Never, Never, Never speech in Belfast 23 years ago. This never, never summed up Paisley through the years but going into partnership with SF is seen by many as betrayal, especially as he and McGuiness shared jokes, as the "chuckle brothers". Film report reviews momentous photo opportunities of his time as First Minister. In January he resigned as Free Presbyterian Moderator, he could run NI or the church but not both, then after their defeat in the Dromore by-election some commentators say there were internal DUP rumblings but Paisley did keep the majority support, but the allegations against Paisley Jnr and Seymour Sweeney although not illegal reignited internal party unrest, S Wilson comments. Then in the studio politicians UUP's D Kennedy, Alliance's N Long, SDLP's A McDonnell and SF's Gerry Kelly all comment on why Paisley chose now to go and say if they think he was pushed, and they comment on the activities of Ian Jnr and his part in Ian Snr's downfall. N Long says since devolution the Paisley's have become a liability with the "chuckle brothers" image and Ian Jnr's behaviour, A McDonnell agrees with this point of view, SF's G Kelly agrees the chuckle brother image did hurt Paisley with anti-republicans. Paisley was aggrieved by the way Paisley Jnr was treated. The panel then comment on who they think is going to be his successor, most think it will be Peter Robinson, A McDonnell says Paisley done more damage to Unionism than Nationalism, the panel comment on what his people will think of him. Enoch Powell is quoted "all political careers end in tears". Next from Washington former British PM Tony Blair outlines his views about Paisley Snr, he says his contribution to peace in NI was immense, Blair says Paisley became committed to power sharing when he knew Republicans really were committed to peace. More Political reaction then from SF's Gerry Adams who praises Paisley's efforts over the last 12 months, as positive, he hopes the new DUP leader will honour the DUP's commitments and deliver the outstanding business. In the studio the former DUP MEP Jim Allister now leader of the TUV says Paisley's going was inevitable once he had served his purpose to the DUP pragmatists. Paisley delivered SF into the heart of government then he was pushed says Allister. He then claims some success at the DUP's fall in the Dromore by-election, Jim Allister then rejects Paisley view that SF are in NI government administering British rule. Allister expects Peter Robinson to be the next DUP leader, but he says DUP policy is wrong and they'll continue to lose support to the TUV under their next leader. Then in an interview from London the DUP MP Nigel Dodds says Paisley made today's decision at a time of his own choosing, Dodds praises Paisley as a political figure who achieved an enormous amount and forced republicans accept British/rule, Dodds rejects Ian Jnr was responsible for him going, or that Paisley Snr was pushed. Dodds is evasive on the issue of who'll succeed Paisley Snr. The next film report is from Andy Martin at Ballymena Town Hall, with two founding members of the DUP, Roy Gillespie who split after the SF deal and M Mills who stayed in the party. Roy Gillespie rejects Paisley's move to devolution with SF, he says Paisley sold out to IRA terrorists, M Mills calls it the passing of an epoch in NI and the DUP, he feels Paisley Jnr had no bearing on Paisley Snr's decision. Then two new Ballymena Cllrs, Deirdre Nelson who supports I Paisley feels it's a sad day, she praises Paisley's service of country and party, and she doesn't think he was pushed. Then William Wilkinson who left the DUP over the Devolution deal, says the DUP were pursuing power before principle, and Paisley was used and now discarded or "executed" by his party, he accuses Peter Robinson and Jeffery Donaldson of waiting in the wings to take over. D Nelson praises the work of I Paisley Jnr on the ground, W Wilkinson thinks it's the end of the dynasty, he wounded Paisley Snr he claims. Back in the studio, Mark Carruthers then talks to journalists Mark Davenport (BBC) Noel Doran (Irish News) and Darwin Templeton (Newsletter) about the Paisley decision. Davenport thinks there were "push factors" involved in him going, he lists the reason for the DUP unease, D Templeton thinks there was a bit of both in Paisley going, he says not getting the Free Presbyterian Moderators post started the ball rolling, Noel Doran says life will go on, he shows tomorrow's Irish News front page, it's the fall of an empire. D Templeton shows Newsletter front page which has a straight forward approach under the headline "Time for Me to Bow Out". The three men then review what would have happened if he'd accepted Sunningdale in 1973, they also comment on the succession battle to Paisley-Dodds or Robinson. The journalists also comment on how a Robinson/McGuiness coalition will work, it'll be a changed relationship with no chuckles. It's also felt Paisley Jnr still has a political future.

Introduced by Noel Thompson, he begins with an interview with journalists Ed Moloney and Liam Clarke on their opinions about the Paisley Snr resignation and the reasons for it. Ed Moloney isn't surprised at the warmth and praise heaped on Paisley but he's surprises we aren't see the contrast to the Paisley at the start of the Troubles. Did the last 12 months make up for his behaviour over 40 years? Ed Moloney explains why there's truth in this comment by a Falls Rd woman, without Paisley would the Troubles have taken a less violent or bloody form, as his function throughout the violence was to stop unionist leaders making the kind of deal he eventually did, look at the scalps on Paisley's belt says Moloney. Liam Clarke says the last 40 years have been the story of Paisley's climb to the top, he done what he condemned others for doing. Is that pragmatism or ambition asks N Thompson, Liam Clarke say Paisley isn't a good follower, he doesn't like to a member of anything he doesn't lead. Ed Moloney says Paisley has a huge ego, he compares Paisley to the way the Sinn Fein leaders were also marginalised. Both agree he defined any era. Next will be a cooler DUP attitude to SF, under P Robinson, Clarke feels there's a possibility of DUP realigning with the DUP, as Paisley was an obstacle to that, Ed Moloney speculates on where the diehard Paisleyites will give their allegiance now, as many felt a sense of personal betrayal over the DUP/SF deal, Moloney says Jim Allister and Paisley fell out years ago, Clarke then Moloney give their summaries of Paisley. In the If You Ask Me Spot, Alex Kane give his version of Paisley's resignation, he alleges Peter Robinson got rid of Paisley, but can he hold all the political parts of the DUP together when he takes over, he lists all the faults in the Paisley last year, then compares his starting point and finishing points, he didn't destroy SF, and he became a unionist who made a deal. Paisley was pushed A Kane says. In the upcoming campaign for the European elections, SF President G Adams has decided to take a back seat in the South, a film report asks has the SF party judged its Northern based leaders to be out of touch with the realities of the South's politics. His last TV performance shows Adams wrong footed by his political opponent, and then at the Ard Fheis SF members comment on losing a seat at the last election and the leadership role now and then. Former TD Sean Crowe (SF) doesn't blame G Adams for the loss, and Ard Fheis motion suggesting 2 joint party presidents, one Northern and one Southern, was defeated strongly. SF TD and Dail leader Caomhghin O Caolain comments on the vote, then Mary Lou McDonald denies that the Northern leadership is seen as remote in the South, then Irish Times journalist Mark Hennessy says people in the South could probably only name Mary Lou McDonald or Martin Ferris from SF. The Stormont Education Minister Catriona Ruane has released more details today on the groups she's to set up to design the structures of post primary schooling under this area planning umbrella, she's in the studio and answers questions on her plans form Noel Thompson.

Description:
Introduced by Noel Thompson he begins by talking to Environment Minister Arlene Foster (DUP) who today proposes to reduce the number of local councils in N Ireland from 26 to 11. He begins why 11 councils when the DUP wanted 15 and SF wanted 7. Arlene says previous decisions were reviewed after devolution and this is what a ministerial sub group came up with. The UUP however weren't happy with boundary decision but A Foster says a boundary commission will deal with those. The Minister says Belfast Council will have 60 members and the other council's 40 members. N Thompson asks the Minister how will minorities, either unionist or nationalist, in different areas have their rights protected. She replies a strategic leadership board has worked on this, she also answered questions on the issues of legal compulsory power sharing. She will be looking at percentages of minorities in different areas and build in safe guards based on that. She also comments on the powers that Central government will give to the councils, but this is only the beginning of the process she says, things will improve a confidence increases in the new system, she wants to give local democracy here a voice, which under the Direct Rule system it hasn't had. Severance packages will be given to councillors who don't go into the super councils. On environmental protection she plans to report to Stormont by the summer on rules for governance and enforcement procedures. Next in a film report Julia Paul assesses the arguments for and against an Environmental Protection Agency in NI, which all parties but the DUP support, farmers also don't want and EPA. At Strangford Lough Marine Biologist Dr David Erwin talks about the destruction of horse mussels and queen scallops by unprotected fishing, yet the Lough is very protected already. Lisa Fagan from Friends of the Earth explains the problems and why an independent EPA is needed. Graham Furey of Ulster Farmers Union fear they'll end up paying for a new EPA. Brendan McGuigan of the Criminal Justice Inspectors says their audit of prosecutions for polluting found politicians often interfered in proceedings. DUP MLA Peter Weir tells why they're against EPA. In the If You Ask Me Spot, journalist Newton Emerson asks why is the DUP in such a panic over the Dromore by election, was a DUP element looking for an end to Paisley's control or is the DUP afraid of any challenges from the unionist fringes, like the TUV in Dromore. In the American Presidential elections, NI has popped up, Hilary Clinton who has been her 5 times as First Lady and Senator is keen to push her role in our peace process as evidence of her Foreign Policy experience but the extent of her involvement in peace making here is being disputed. In the studio, Geraldine McAteer of the West Belfast Partnership, Steven King former UUP adviser and Conor O'Clery author of the Greening of the White House argue the pros and cons of how important Hilary Clinton really was to the NI peace process, is she overstating her case, or is it just electioneering.

Description:
A detailed examination of today's resignation of B Ahern as Irish PM from May 6th after 11 years in office, present by Miriam O'Callaghan, it begins with a film report from John O'Diamond titled the Art of Possible which profiles the man who led Ireland for the last 11 years, what aspects of his personality drove him to his success and where in his character flaws was the seeds of his downfall, to answer who was Bertie Ahern, Pat Farrell, former Fianna fail General Secretary gives his views of Ahern, then views of Alan Dukes former Fine Gael leader, his can do attitude as the foundation of his political ability, he was grounded in reality but his opponents saw in him a man who would make a deal, and A Duke's thinks that is also a weakness, and the trade unions could see that, but Pat Farrell talks up the success of his deal making skills with the European Union, and in his efforts in bringing Northern unionists into the North's peace process. Drumcondra was Ahern's comfort blanket says Pat Farrell, but Alan Duke's says a carelessness existed there in his friendships which done for him in the end. Then in the studio Marian O'Callaghan talks with Senator Eoghan Harris who calls Ahern a true tragic-hero, who cared for his country but didn't watch his back, he feels that Ahern should have been able to see out his time as PM, then Fintan O'Toole of the Irish Times says it's the 2nd time in 20 years a talented politician has been forced out of office due to an inability to understand that public office doesn't entitle him to private enrichment, he notes that Ahern didn't say he was sorry in his statement today, then Terry Prone of the communication clinic disagrees with both the other guests, she says his flaw as he didn't make punitive or probing decisions. She explains what she means by this remark. The panel then discuss Ahern's statement today and what they think will be his legacy. E Harris doesn't believe he took corrupt payments. Fintan O'Toole outlines why it's unquestionable in his view Ahern is guilty of corruption even by Ahern's own definition. The panel then discuss the idea that he was only doing what everyone else was doing at that time, F O'Toole says if he had said that he'd probably still be in office today, but spinning stories showed his contempt for the Irish people. Terry Prone says the notion that ethnics has only recently been invented is wrong, the same rules applied 20 years ago. Eoghan Harris says Ahern's legacy is that he unified Fianna Fail, got it to give up its Pan Nationalists party and he unified North and South in the Good Friday Agreement, and he united the people of Great Britain and Ireland in a better relationship. F O'Toole says the Irish people have an affection for Ahern, he says Ahern's strength was he was a deal maker, a fixer, but that was also his weakness, he explains his point of view, that he was always focused on the next deal and had no long term plans for Ireland . Terry Prone outlines her view of his legacy. Across the studio a panel of politicians, Fergus O'Boyle TD (FG) says NI's peace process is his biggest legacy, but he says that era is now over, then FF TD Willie O'Dea, Minister of Defence defends Ahern's legacy in NI, the economy, employment, he believes the verdict of the Mahon Tribunal won't condemn Ahern. Then the Green Party's Senator Dan Boyle gives his verdict on Ahern he says that they did raise the Mahon Tribunal questions with Ahern when other parties didn't, but even the population voted him back into power, he defends the Green Party's 180o turnaround now. The panel then look at the timing of Ahern's departure, the Mahon Tribunal evidence from his secretary is crucial says F O'Dowd but W O'Dea criticises the fact that the Tribunal hasn't heard Ahern's reply to her as yet. Then in a film report Paul Maguire looks at who will be FF's new leader and profiles Brian Cowan the report is called Waiting in the Wings. B Ahern himself said Cowan was his obvious successor, but many in FF like Dermot Ahern says the leadership issue isn't decided yet. Minister of Transport Noel Dempsey says he'd like to be FF leader but political analyst Noel Whelan thinks there won't be a contest, Brian Cowan has held 7 ministries and is the likely favourite, TV analysts comment on his political skills and failings. Back in the studio Willie O'Dea (FF) outlines his views on the leadership, he doesn't really think a contest makes a difference. F O'Dowd FG says B Cowan is more than a political bruiser. Closing montage of B Ahern TV clips shown.

Introduced by Noel Thompson he begins by discussing in the studio with former SDLP MP and deputy first minister Seamus Mallon and UUP's Reg Empey the legacy of Irish PM B Ahern in relation to N Ireland's peace process. Reg Empey says he was a different type of Fianna Fail leader. Then that which unionists usually saw, as he was less ideologically driven. A practical person used to negotiations with trade unions, he recalls the Mitchell proposals problem. Then S Mallon says G Fitzgerald and the Anglo-Irish Agreement and the J Major 1993 Declaration in Downing St led the way for Ahern and Blair. Ahern he says had a man in the street cuteness, he listened well, he criticises him for too much "cuddlings" of Sinn Fein over the decommission issue. Reg Empey agrees there was a degree of over indulgence of Sinn Fein over decommissioning but he praises Ahern's direct engagement with Unionism. S Mallon says Ahern didn't have any liking for SF, but those who made the agreement SDLP/UUP were the big losers after the GFA. R Empey denies B Ahern had to be restrained from whacking UUP's D Trimble, but admits there were rows. S Mallon comments on Paisley with Ahern image, that he glad Paisley changed, but sorry they happened way too late. R Empey said Ahern had the gift of the gab and you always felt comfortable with him. Then in a film report from Julia Paul, she examines some of the evidence from the Mahon Tribunal into Ahern's personal finances it begins with Ahern comments he had done no wrong. Julia Paul says the Tribunal had found between 1993-94 payments into his account were 2.5 times his salary, where did the money come from, in the early 1990s despite being an accountant and Irish Finance Minister he says he had no bank account and dealt in cash only, and he kept his 50,000 Euros in a safe. Irish Times journalist Colm Keena comments on Ahern's savings, in 1993 he says friends had a whip round and gave him 22,000 Irish pounds and in 1994 friends donated another 16.5 Irish punts, Colm Keena recalls Ahern's evidence on this. Ahern also admits a Manchester businessman Michael Wall brought him £30,000 in a suitcase to renovate a house Bertie was going to rent for him. Then to analyse the fallout from Mahon, N Thompson is joined by Irish Times journalist Steven Collins in Dublin, and in Belfast Finnola O'Connor and Conal McDaid a political commentator, they discuss the chances of the Mahon Tribunal denting Ahern's legacy in NI over the NI peace process.

As the 10th anniversary of the signing of the GFA nears, in this programme Jonathan Powell, the British PM Tony Blair's Chief of Staff tells the story of his own secret role in the peace process. It begins with Powell recalling a phone call he had from M McGuiness asking him to come and meet him, but not to tell MI5 they were meeting, Powell said jokingly I'll come if you don't have me killed.

He explains the nature of his job as Blair's Chief of Staff was to run Downing St and make sure Blair's writ ran through government, his involvement in NI only came about by accident he says when Blair needed a trusted inner circle man to act for him. Powell then recalls his Derry meeting with McGuiness about IRA decommissioning, McGuiness was on crutches, Powell kept a candid diary, sometimes undiplomatically, he read the entry for Wed 18/11/99 about McGuiness, saying decommissioning wasn't possible as it would look like surrender, Powell left Derry, Tony Blair is asked about his moral qualms over talking to terrorists he said he had but every action of the British State hadn't been right or above board either.

Divide and Rule
Description:
Introduced by Jeremy Vine then presented by Declan Lawn this programme looks at living in Belfast now 10 years after the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) and asks why are physical barriers between the two communities still going up, Declan Lawn begins by listing the improvements, increase in tourism, last year 1.4 m people took the bus tour of Belfast's trouble spots, some tourists explain why they come, next year £2b of money will be investing in infrastructure here, it's a building boom, that's 3 times as much as 10 years ago, house prices are up 400% and unemployment is down by 70%. At Stormont SF and the DUP sit in coalition government with McGuiness/Paisley called the chuckle brothers, Belfast is being reborn NI's not about terrorism anymore, but what does peace really look like in a society where division goes back over 100s of years. D Lawn then takes the alternative tour of NI, he revisits Derry and Ballymena where he lived at times of his life. Michael Doherty of a peace and reconciliation group comments on the work still to do here, Derry is scarred by division, D Lawn explains the division, Doherty says fear caused it all, the Fountain Estate, a Protestant area on the Catholic city side is profiled, Wm Jackson says they feel under siege, he explains the attacks over the peace wall and his defences, he can't see an end to the attacks on the other side of the fence. Catholic Eamon Melaugh recalls the violence and riots, Eamon took photos of the Catholic and Protestant young men fighting. Efforts by locals have reduced clashes by 61% but avoidance syndrome means there are no moves to bring them together just keep them apart, the fear and mistrust is being passed down to a new generation. D Lawn then goes to Paisley's heartland in Ballymena, totally different from Derry it's Protestant with Catholic minority. In 1996 for 2 years loyalists picketed the Harrysville Catholic Church in protest over Orange pds being banned from Catholic areas, after the GFA things got worse as republican flags were put up in the Dunclug Estate, D Lawn shows the signs of polarisation, Mark Rainey a loyalist comments, then Catholic teenagers talk about their fears in around Ballymena, as they explain territorial division, on-line sectarianism has a 21st century twist, D Lawn profiles the bebo.com hotline of tension, he shows the vicious comments. In May 2006 Catholic teenager Michael McIlveen was beaten to death in sectarian attack, attacks in Ballymena are down 60 this year. Catholic youths says tensions are still bad, the loyalists are quite happy to live in a peaceful segregation, but not integration, they criticise political attitudes at Stormont. At Stormont, D Lawn asks Peter Shirlow of QUB, if Stormont is hailed a model of conflict resolution, what does he mean to the people on the ground. Shirlow feels there is no linkage between the Stormont image and the peace walls, it's not peace bridges that are being built but walls. With ? New peace walls put up since the GFA, in delivering peace the GFA has consolidated sectarian divisions, even today politicians have to declare themselves nat, unionist or other, only 9 say they are other. P Shirlow comments on this issue, GFA manages sectarianism not remove it. On Belfast's Crumlin Rd, Rev Norman Hamilton points out that RCs and Protestants have their own bus stop, 150 metres apart, he says social apartheid exists in North Belfast. D Lawn then shows other examples where services are duplicated like leisure centres on the Shankill and Falls both cost £1m a yr to run, duplicate school buses costs £2.5m per yr, segregated public housing £24m a year, policing for every 1000 people in NI costs £478,000 that's 2.5 times more than England and Wales, segregation in NI is expensive for everyone in Britain. Peter Shirlow questions Stormont commitment to ending segregation, then journalist Newton Emerson highlights our political problem has become the centre of the NI economy, he highlights the population move to new mixed housing development. In North Belfast Margaret Valente and Mary Stanton look over a new interface housing complex and comment on living there. D Lawn sums up, segregation must be dealt with, P Shirlow agrees.

Thompson asks does Paisley's efforts in the last couple of years make up for his decades of negativity, Blair says it's best to let the past take care of itself, in the end Paisley did the deal, and that's the most important thing, Blair refuses to confirm Jonathan Powell's view that from 2004 the DUP and SF had a back channel through which they communicated he claims there were lots of things he wasn't aware about. Blair is then asked was it anyone's fault that he didn't get the SDLP and UUP to make a deal stick, he feels over time creative ambiguity helped the process, it created time for republicans and unionists to come to understand the stark choices, if he did make a miscalculation he says it was believing once they done the GFA signing, everything else would take care of itself, he says he understands why people make the assumption he bent over backward to assist republicans at the expense of unionism but he says he told people if you can show me a way moving this forward without republicans, I'll have a look at it but no one ever did, and the SDLP weren't prepared to go it along without SF claims Blair, he denies it was the threat of republican violence that motivated him, he also says Bats/repub accused him of bending over backwards to assist Trimble and the unionists, the reality was he feels, he was bending over backward for both sides. O his referendum campaign about excluding those who broke promises, and about prisoner releases, he doesn't accept he said he would pull things down as there was no government Then Thompson pushes him on this point, he gives his viewpoint of the letter he give Trimble, Blair denies fear of violence made him release prisoners after 1998, he accepts there were messy compromises but he doesn't regret them otherwise you wouldn't got the peace, Blair is asked why did he start to solve the Irish question. Blair felt the quarrel was unsuited to the 21st Century, it seemed time to solve the "thing", Blair recalls the depressing times he had, but he said you never give up, he was convinced both sides wanted peace. Blair denies he has a Messiah complex about this issue. Blair then is questioned about his view of Adams and McGuiness relationship with the PIRA, he didn't accept they could do just what they wanted to do, as British/Intell were saying to him, Blair comments on talking to Al Qaeda, he says the IRA weren't Al Qaeda, it wasn't unreasonable to want a United Ireland just to do it by violence, Al Qaeda demands are unreasonable he says (at this point the waffles on a bit). He says you must however try to understand the political and emotional side of different stances on the Middle East, NI has lessons for them, continued focus, never give up, the detail matters, always led both sides to understand the other position. Blair then comments on US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton contribution here was really important. On last piece of jigsaw, devolution of policing and justice, Blair say they'll find a way to overcome this, Blair says his legacy in NI is important to him, but he claims his 10 years in government saw other good things, NI proves conflicts are resolvable.

The Importance of Being Irish
Programme Title:
Part 4
Description:
This programme examines Ireland's position in the global market and looks at how Ireland's creative and spiritual heritage can affect or be affected by internationalism. Leading businessmen and visual artists contribute. It begins with clip of Feb 24th 2007 rugby match in Croke Park between Ireland and England given the history of the venue from Bloody Sunday in 1920, some say Ireland came of age that day. Neville Isdell recalls that day and what it meant to him emotionally, he goes on to comment on the evolving sense of Irishness that exists today, through normal generational change, people leaving Ireland take their Irishness with them and still love it and believe in it. In Atlanta, Georgia is Coca Cola's HQ, its boss is an Irishman born in Downpatrick, he's Neville Isdell who comments open the programme, he believes the social genre of being Irish, the way you're brought up, gives you an advantage and equips you for leadership in today's world. Every second 10,000 bottles of coke are consumed across the world, globalisation is a fact of life. Tom Arnold says it's a good thing it has enable people to escape from poverty, he outlines his views. Peter Sutherland chairman of BP thinks multi-nationals in the 60s and 70s were as big as "globalisation" companies of today, BP he says hasn't the influence or power that some say it has as Europe's biggest company, he thinks it's wrong to fear globalisation, borders should broken down, to create equality of opportunity. Economist D Lane advises banks on globalisation, he comments advising company how to compete, Peter Sutherland says as European populations get smaller, we have growing young populations in Africa who don't have the same opportunities as Europeans, globalisation and removing borders is the way to deal with this he claims. Former Irish President Mary Robinson says legalised emigration means only the skilled workers are chosen, and that doesn't help developing countries, Ireland should be expressing these things in Europe, citing our experiences of migration. Many believe that oil and other resources will run out, Dublin born CEO of Chevron David O'Reilly, comments on the challenge of just keeping up with demand, he feels policy makers are often short on the facts about oil exploration and product development and the choices we face, Chevron invests in alternatives and efficiency, hydrogen energy is one method, energy and water are the challenges for the world says O'Reilly, we are all in the same boat. Ireland is linked with others across the planet in all of this. In 1998 Steven Colins founded a small technology company in Dublin and it moved to California and became the world's leading software provider for film and video games industry. S Collin is now thinking of returning to Ireland as it's easier to set up in Ireland, he explains his viewpoint and expected technology advance in coming years, he feels Ireland is up with the rest in technology development at present. In London in coming months Irish surgeon Peter Butler will perform the first full facial transplant in the world, he'll make medical history, Peter Butler comments on tissue engineering research and his techniques aboard approach with pragmatism. Peter Sutherland then says the only thing Ireland has which makes us distinctive as a people is a superior education system, Francis Ruane agrees education is the key, but Sutherland feels our young people have succeeded in spite of their education, economist D Lane feels our education systems should be more international in outlook. Sutherland continues to lament on our universities. Former Irish PM John Bruton is now the EEC Ambassador to the USA, he feels the Irish temperament suits an ambassador role, we are curious all over the world, that gives us the ability to be peace makers in the world. In the USA huge numbers of Americans have Irish connections he expresses his fears over the Islamic world clash with the West, by 2020 Europeans will constitute only 1 out of every 20 people in the world, the West must find a way to manage this situation he feels in a way that doesn't lead to conflict. Dorothy Cross however feels Ireland is full of its own self importance, she lists her complaints, it's all about money now in Ireland she says, as an artist she's unhappy with that, she recalls growing up in Cork without art around her, and laments modern desires to get money above all else. Mary Robinson says young people long for amore purposeful sense of Irishness, she feels put off by the Celtic Tiger image of money making wealthy Ireland. Diarmuid Martin says Ireland's success isn't a miracle, it's the result of hard work, but we need an injection of idealism. In Bavaria, Irish artist Sean Scully points abstract work, trying to catch a sense of spirituality which he can trace back to his Irish origins, Irish art is primarily associated with the literary traditional rather than the visual one, Scully outlines his views on visual and literary art, he calls his paints international with a druid sensibility. QUB Prof Richard English says Irish Nationalism always perceived itself with a spiritual dimension, anti-modern, this saints and scholar outlook has been branded by the Tourism Industry says Oxford Prof Roy Foster, yet the Irish experience appears to be moving further and further away from this image of Ireland, from story tellers and dreamers to more materialistic views, Richard Kearney, Boston College philosopher says the experience of Godlessness and disillusionist with the Catholic Church over priest scandals, this trauma has allowed a revival in the Church's and in Irish cultural life, he goes on to talk about imagination linked to faith an Irish quality he claims, Belfast born Michael McIlroy is a world expert on the earth's atmosphere, his career stretches back to the 1976 Mars landing, he has an understanding of the history of the planet and likely future challenges, he outlines his viewpoints, mankind is only on earth a brief time, Peter Sutherland comments on the danger of climate change, Mary Robinson says it's happening now, Michael McIlroy believes wind power and nuclear power are part of the future, he says nuclear power isn't against nature. In future the cars will be hybrid, the narrator then gives her views on the concept of Irishness as a complex fluid, every changing one, but the more it changes the more it stays the same she claims. Rory McGowan says Ireland's story has been completely rewritten in the 20 years he has been abroad, China's aquatic centre for the Olympics was designed by an Irish architect/physicist Denis Weaire, he explains his work, all the contributors have their final comments on the Irish identity.

SF's Education Minister has been accused of side stepping democracy by issuing guidelines to school in the hope of persuading them it's in their best interests to abandon selection, the leaded SF paper has upset unionists. John O'Dowd (SF) says the leaked document has brought format and shape to the education debate, he says SF will produce a document for the Executive in the coming weeks. John O'Dowd claims its 25 grammar schools out of 226 schools that are holding up progress, he adds the Teachers Unions want the end of 11+ also. Then Basil McCrea (UUP) says the St Andrews Agreement had it written in that academic selection would be retained, he says SF will bully schools who don't do things their way. J O'Dowd says SF is a political party in power it has to make plan A and plan B, they are serious about their responsibilities, the other parties haven't produced any papers yet. B McCrea comments on why they haven't put forward a paper, he talks in generalities. The debate continues with accusation and counter accusation against SF and its proposals, John O'Dowd rejects McCrea's views that SF view is ideological, but he maintains SF will act if they can't get Executive agreement by going to plan B, issuing guidelines. In the If You Ask Me Spot, Lindsay Allen talks about Peter Robinson succeeding Ian Paisley as DUP leader, he reviews the stepping down of Paisley Snr and his chuckle brothers image with M McGuiness causing embarrassment to the DUP, and asks has Paisley given Robinson a poisoned chalice.

In the next item Noel Thompson talks to the author of a new report on getting loyalists to engage with politics as a way forward, Graham Spencer and Chris Hudson who acted for the Irish government in talks with loyalists. Graham Spencer feels loyalists need to be engaged as even unionists see them as things. Chris Hudson comments on who are the loyalist community and their lack of political representatives. Both men feel they should be reached out to and engaged as they provided the loyalist ceasefire which was essential to building peace, loyalists need an incentive to decommission and they need to feel involved in the process. Chris Hudson calls loyalists Dads Army with attitude, compared to revolutionary republicans. Ends with comic taxi driver routine.

Ten Days of Terror (Part 2 of 4)
Description:
Presented by Peter Taylor, this 4 part series deals with global terrorism and the rise of Islamic terror groups. This episode Pt2 deals with N Ireland the IRA terrorism, especially around the time Libya's Col Gadaffi supplied the PIRA with arms in 1987, which is why I recorded this episode only. P Taylor begins with Oct 12th 1987 when a trawler left Malta headed for Libya to collect weapons for the PIRA in Ireland, he shows a montage of film clips about NI violence, in 1987 he recalls he saw no way out of "the never, never land" of NI. However he says in the next 10 days 2 dramatic events would lead to him being proved wrong. The first was the revelation of how rogue states sponsored terrorism. The 2nd was the Enniskillen Remembrance Day bombing, both were the beginning of a long road to peace.

Meanwhile in Fermanagh, the Protestant community prepared for Remembrance Sunday, Joan Wilson recalls the tradition, Taylor talks to Stephen Gault about his father's view of Remembrance Sunday. In France, A Hopkins reveals PIRA going to Libya, P Taylor profiles Gadaffi and the West's view of him, Gadaffi had dealt with the IRA since the 1970s a film from then shows him say as much. By mid 80s Libyan/British relations were severed, then F1-11s from USA bombed Libya using British airports, Gadaffi now supplied arms on massive scale, A Hopkins confession continues to the French. Sir Robert Andrew of the N-I-O in 1987 recalls his surprise at the Eksund seizure, then his relief, Pat Byrne of Garda Special Branch recalls his jubilation.

In France, A Hopkins comes clean about his involvement he done it for the money £100,000 for 5 tons of arms, Pat Byrne said he done it for money, Hopkins told them he had landed 4 other Libyan shipments over the last 2 years, involving 130 tons of arms, the British/Irish were alarmed at the intelligence slips, Pat Byrne's recalls finding 80 AK47s in a Libyan army box in Jan 87, this was a pointer they failed to appreciate he says, P Taylor details the itinerary of weapons the PIRA landed plus £10m in cash.

Pat Byrne says the IRA began a debate about its strategy on the way forward. D Morrison says it triggered fresh thinking, he recalls Adams proposed talks with the SDLP. These talks P Taylor says set the architects of the long war on the long road to peace. In the aftermath of these 10 days of terror a chilling realisation seized British minds the IRA had 130 tons of weapons in Ireland, NIO's Robert Andrew says the long war could go on a long time unless the British could find a way of achieving a political solution. A Hopkins got 5 years in jail. Peter Taylor then profiles the road to peace, many had to accept SF's M McGuiness as deputy first minister in NI, he gets the views of Steven Gault, Joan Wilson.

Policing and Justice Devolution
Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers this programme looks at why even though the British government wants to devolve Policing and Justice (P&J) powers to Stormont, it won't happen anytime soon. Programme begins with the statistics of crime figures here, and the public attitude to the devolution of P&J powers, the new ministry would have the 3rd biggest budget in NI at £1.5b. But their disagreement between SF and the DUP on when to devolve the powers. A second report from Andy Martin looks at what NI people really want in when urban and rural areas, in Limavady PJ McGinn's the students Union President talks about his fears, then community education worker Diane Rathfield's views, then businessman Douglas Millar, all blame increase in drug dealing in the town, then Glen Reilly of Limavady High School, all want zero tolerance of anti-social behaviour, then in West Belfast following murders and sexual assaults, community worker Jimmy Quinn comments it isn't the wild west, then single mother Margaret Boyle says the PSNI delay or don't answer calls. On Lisburn Rd, Belfast, Paul McConaghie, a retailer complains about police, another retailer Eileen Lamb praises the police response, then Alec Ash of the Trossachs Residents Assoc laments loss of community offices. Then in Coalisland, Co Tyrone Micky Carolan, Theatre Director says some don't want police at all, there's increase in anti-social behaviour, Youth worker Colleen O'Neill is afraid to walk home, then parent Alice Campbell says PNSI only come in for motoring offences and not at night. All the above comment on the justice system as well and generally they condemn the slap on the wrist attitude of judges who live in ivory towers, they reject the 50% remission. Some want more rehabilitation of offenders in jail.

Description:
Introduced by Noel Thompson, he begins the programme with an interview with PSNI Chief Constable Hugh Orde on his comments that this might be the most difficult year for policing, since he took up his post in 2002. Hugh Orde says expectations for policing are extremely high, the devolution of policing and justice, he feels, isn't going to happen and communities are left disappointed. Hugh Orde says he's all for devolution of policing and justice even though it makes no difference to him operationally but it would allow Stormont to legislate to enable him to protect local communities, he cites Crime and Disorder Act as a piece of UK legislation we need here, once politicians sort out devolution of policing and justice he will work with whoever is Justice Minister, he thinks devolution of these powers would help politicians move on here, on his recent rows with SF, he says those are healthy debates, but crime here is at a 6 yr low and that's because more and more are trusting the police, he says he'll bridge the gap with SF by working together, the gap is in knowledge of how the police works and that's about talking with SF, and having a shared desire to protect the community, he feels you move on from the bottom up and policing must deal with rumours around events have a shared vision of what happened and fix it, if there's a problem. Asked if policing should be devolved before the gap has been bridged, Orde says that's a matter for politicians and as it's a political decision it doesn't matter what he thinks he has an arm's length contact with ministers, it's the Policing Board he answers to, he's asked to comment on his accusation that the Policing Board is tribal, he replies the board is in transition, it represents all communities and relationships are being built, these debates are healthy. On the murder of Paul Quinn in Monaghan, Orde agrees with the IMC viewpoint that the IRA had no command/control involvement with the murder, he had input into their report. On the parades issue and Lord Ashdown's report he says it's an interim report and he looks forward to debating some issues around 'clear' legislation on parades, saying what is illegal and what isn't, especially around the issues of parade supporters. On policing the past, he denies he's complaining, but he way we are doing it is very expensive he claims, he praises the HET as value for money, it has a ring fenced budget, but public inquiries are very expensive in cost and time. It won't say it's a waste of money. In the If You Ask Me Spot, David Vance says local democracy was cancelled last week, he explains the DUP/SF want 2009 council election cancelled. He criticises former top Provo chairing Iraqi peace talks in Finland, he then criticises Catriona Ruane the educ/min who he says wants to run NI's education system, he also criticises segregation in NI leisure centres and he compares Paisley to the Capt of the Titanic. With the brothers Grimm due to replace the 'chuckle brothers' and Biffo taking over in Dublin, Julia Paul looks into the world of political nicknames, she recalls now Biffo has changed what his nickname means, then Quentin Letts comments on how politicians get their names like M Foot, M Thatcher, then Henry Bell of Bel/Metro/College comments on Joe Devlin, Ian Paisley, Harry McMillen, Lloyd George's nicknames. Both comment on endearing or ? nicknames. The tabloid press love nicknames, John Cassidy of the Sunday World comments on paramilitary nicknames like Mad Dog, Henry Bell says nicknames now aren't as common as 20 years ago. Next in the studio Noel Thompson talks to two school headmasters on opposite side of the 11+ academic section debate, Jack Magill from Foyle College in Derry and Hel McCrea of Ballyclare Secondary School. They debate the current situation in NI's education policy. Followed by comic taxi driver routine.

Description:
As last weeks have saw the anniversaries of the Good Friday Agreement, with conferences held to discuss the lessons of that time, in this programme N Thompson begins by talking to David Trimble the leader of the UUP at that time in 1998. Trimble says he's celebrating this week as what they helped set-up 10 years ago is now firmly established, he quotes S Mallon (SDLP) as saying St Andrew Agreement is the GFA in drag. Trimble says he doesn't have regrets, he had an opportunity to make real change, he rejects the idea people didn't follow his vision, the UUP done the heavy lifting that established the peace of today. In 1998 he says no one would have predicted McGuiness/Paisley would have been at the helm, he says around 2001 the NIO started talking about brining in the extremes. Blair held on the middle ground parties as long as he could his difficulty was republicans delivering their promises. Trimble claims they haven't (the DUP) changed the agreement in any significant way, and they are now pro agreement. Trimble points out the UUP did achieve the beginning of decommissioning in 2001, in 2005 after the Northern Bank robbery the unionist electorate sent a message to Blair in those elections. In says the agreement wasn't fully implemented until last year. It should have been done in 1998-99, but he defends the UUP's strategic decision of the early days, it would have been worse for unionism if they all said no. He recalls welcoming the Paisley/McGuiness deal, he has no sour grapes. If You Ask Me Spot has journalist Newton Emerson talking about an Interpol report says the PIRA charged FARC guerrillas in Colombia $28m for 14 modules in terror training, he develops his piece into a sarcastic look at guerrilla training, within the bounds of SF policy of non academic selection in Education here, he calls these personal guerrilla profiles. Noel Thompson then introduces a film report from Julia Paul on problems about interpreting and documenting our Troubles as in Cannes a new film opens called 'Hunger' about the Bobby Sands story. History is written by the victors but we have no victors here, SF defends the film, the DUP's G Campbell condemns it, then former prisoner Richard O'Rawe who wrote a book on the unnecessary deaths of 6 of the hunger strikers gives an interview on his point of view, then SF MLA Raymond McCartney rejects O'Rawe's arguments, then historian Eamon Phoenix comments on peoples recollections, then Carrie Twomey editor of the Blanket and wife of Anthony McIntyre explains why the set up to circumvent censorship within the Republican community on people's opinions on the peace process. R O'Rawe comments on propagandas power, then E Phoenix on a single version of events. Next Noel Thompson talks to 3 writers of a new book on the changing attitudes between Britain and Ireland, in Dublin Olivia O'Leary, and in Belfast Susan McKay and QUB Prof Richard English. O O'Leary says economic prosperity has helped the thaw, as had intuitionalist of the relationship, beginning with the Anglo Irish Agreement, R English says it's been driven from the top down, and the EEC contacts helped, Susan McKay mentions community workers working together in poorer areas without funding. The trio continue to discuss this topic with Susan McKay raising the fact that the British government resisting inquiries isn't helping peace efforts. Next comic taxi driver piece.

Description:
In Oct 1985 the BBC journalists went on strike when the BBC appeared to bow to government pressure and not screen the docu. At the Edge of the Union which featured SF's M McGuiness and the DUP's G Campbell the documentarywas screened, this programme is a follow up, which looks back at the original 1985 programme and then compares how the situation has changed in N Ireland since the Good Friday Agreement (GFA) with interviews with both men now and from 1985 shown. It begins with clip of IRA ceremony from 1985 and shots being fired, then clip of M McGuiness mentioning "cutting edge of the IRA" and G Campbell wanting the IRA killed, then comments of both men at present on their aims. Then back to 1985 speech by M McGuiness on resistance to British oppression in Ireland, followed his comments now on the state of war that existed in those days. Followed by 1985 DUP G Campbell's speech referring to McGuiness as a craven coward, then he refers to 1981 murder and violence looking back at it. The programme narrator then profiles Derry's extremes and say the programme (in 1985) through the eyes of two extremists, Campbell and McGuiness will look at the city's polarisation, a clip of a young McGuiness then details his republican credentials, since 1970 then loyalist G Campbell advocates a shoot to kill policy in 1985, then today he looks back saying he represents the British presence in Ireland and the PIRA was never gonna wipe them out, but the IRA just couldn't grasp that back then, the next clip shown is of comments made by Campbell's wife on the death of 2 IRA men, and an INLA bomb attack on him. Campbell comments on his new security measures back in 1985, then McGuiness wife back in 1985 talks of her worries about Martin as a SF activist, presently commenting on the 1985 docu, he recalls having no guarantee from the BBC on how he would be portrayed, but he was happy enough with it, Campbell recalls objecting to how McGuiness was portrayed, as offensive as it clouds his real personality. Then 1985 clip shows McGuiness stopped at UDR roadblock, where his car is searched and Martin mother comments on her worries about him, as she recalls 5-10-68 and the beginning of everything, then Martin recalls the influence this event had on him, but G Campbell says the 1968 Civil Rights marches shouldn't have been marching there, and the RUC wanted to stop it, he says through the 1970s M McGuiness keeps the pot boiling, film clip then shows G Campbell at DUP meeting talking about McGuiness as IRA chief of staff he presently then recalls why he took part in the programme to show up McGuiness. From 1985 M McGuiness denies he is IRA chief of staff and blames British/Intell/sources for wanting him killed, looking back he recalls the dangers he lived with compared to G Campbell's security. Campbell recalls he was happy to challenge McGuiness in the 1985 programme, clip then shows him going to church with RUC escort, followed by a 1985 sermon, then M McGuiness sitting with M McLaughlin in 1985 explains why the IRA uses violence, then from SF's annual Easter commemoration in 1985, both men give differing views of the IRA's campaign, today looking back at the McGuiness words, Campbell highlights McGuiness saying if there was a peaceful way to free Ireland he would support it, Campbell wonders was that the beginning of a change in IRA thinking. 1985 film clip then shows armed PIRA gunmen at the Easter's rally in Tyrone and M McGuiness speech to the crowd. Followed by Campbell's view of Martin in 1985 as cult figure in the Catholic community, even though he wanted unionists put out of NI, then a switch to an Orange parade from 1985 when G Campbell's speech welcomes the band season and the marching of Protestant feet, Campbell rejects the programme portraying both rallies as similar, just 2 sides of a coin, he claims he just wanted law breakers brought to justice, he says he wasn't a law breaker, a clip shows him and Paisley in 1985 say there's no distinction between the IRA and SF. McGuiness now recalls the 1985 labels the British put on him, then a clip shows a 1985 SF election victory in Derry, where McGuiness takes part as crowd sings "up the Ra", then McGuiness tells the press winning votes won't bring freedom in Ireland, it's cutting edge of IRA that'll bring freedom, now looking back McGuiness comments on that remark. Back in 1985 Campbell threatens to take up the gun if the British pull out of N Ireland now looking back he recalls his remarks about untold violence by Protestants, then in 1985 McGuiness says if the British presence is out of Ireland we will have peace in Ireland, he denies that's an optimistic view, then news clip from 1985 tells of BBC decision not to show its documentaryabout M McGuiness in its present form. Home/Secretary Douglas Hurd says the programme would help the PIRA, then G Campbell recalls thinking the decision was absurd. Then further news report shows 4000 striking NUJ journalists, leading to the programme being shown with minor changes. McGuiness recalls the controversy as an added bonus for Sinn Fein. Then clip from 1985 hears McGuiness justify the use of the gun in war, he mentions Reagan in Nicaragua, Thatcher in the Falklands he says Irish freedom is a just cause. Also then, Campbell says it would be a grievous insult to the dead if anyone was to sit down with SF/McGuiness to talk peace, he wants "those people" dealt with, to finish the IRA, kill them he says. The programme then looks at Belfast in 2007 when NI was an agreed devolved assembly and power sharing executive, a film clip shows M McGuiness as deputy first minister addressing the Lottery Heritage Fund, on the importance of Heritage to NI. Afterwards he comments on the massive changes here since 1985, he's in government now with other SF ministers, the war of 1985 is well and truly over. Then G Campbell says his life has changed, he has no RUC security, and it's a more peaceful environment here, and people are less anxious on security now. He's on his way to discuss plans for a new supermarket which is causing concern to local residents, he says his representation of people hasn't changed, but the shadow of a gun has gone. Back at the Heritage conference, McGuiness is filmed addressing his audience, then film clip from May 07 shows Paisley/McGuiness installed as first and deputy first minister then M McGuiness comments on this new relationship compared to the "Foreign" 1980s, although his objective is to re-unite Ireland now by peaceful means, then over to G Campbell who comments on Limavady job losses at Seagate, he says the sectarian approach in NI will become irrelevant to a future date he says 2025, he hopes to see the fruits of a stable NI, film clip then shows M McGuiness visiting the Belfast Islamic Centre and he addresses the Muslims there on prejudice and abuse which he condemns, afterwards he feels hopeful for the future he says, for everyone in NI. Campbell says he still sees McGuiness responsible for previous violence and resents him, McGuiness says Campbell has bitterness and hostility towards him and the peace process, he still lives in the past and still won't speak to him. Campbell says he won't forget who's responsible for the past, but he wants to build a better future.

Morrow praises his political judgement and now the constitutional issue is settled, he calls him a Unionist Colossus. Next SF's G Adams speaks, he recalls it was Paisley's desire to visit the Falls Rd in 1964 that got Adams interested in Irish politics, he says Paisley is living proof of why a politician should never say never, never, never.

Robinson wishes him well with his family. Robinson then looks to the challenges ahead for him, now the settling in period is over, he wants peace achieved, removal of paramilitariansm, building of the economy, solve unresolved issues, it will be step by step he says, he promises to work with all 4 parties in the Executive. He then rejects criticisms of their opponents outside the House (TUV) he says the decision of 1 yr ago was correct and nobody out there can offer better. He says when you do what's right the people follow, he claims the sceptics (TUV) would sit and let Westminster decide NI's fate and remain powerless, he says they have the confidence to do what's in best interests of NI people, he says we must remember those who died over the last 40 years and those who still suffer as victims, we must learn from the past but not live in it. He wants NI of innovation, we have much to celebrate he says, since 1921 the police have never had greater support, then now and relationships are good with the Republic, he also welcomes support from Britain and the USA. He says the applying of the DUP veto only means we couldn't agree it isn't a weapon. Then Deputy First Minister M McGuiness begins his speech firstly a piece in Irish then, thanks his party for the support, he looks forward to working with Peter Robinson, he's an Irish Republican who Ireland reunite but he'll work with a committed unionist for all our community, the eyes of the world are upon us as example of conflict resolution and this will continue, we have achieved what many said was impossible, he refers to the hurt of the Troubles and says they are important, he maintains the victims commissioners role. He says the Executive has shown it can work together, the all-Ireland institutions are bedded down, he feels it's been a historic year for himself and Paisley, now the honeymoon period is over, it's now about results, about growing the economy and protecting the vulnerable in our society, our people want an end to division in NI, the war is over he says. He calls for an effort to tackle racism and sectarianism, beginning in this Chamber, he calls for devolution of Policing and Justice and other challenges that lie ahead, he recalls 2006 speech in the USA by P Robinson about the Planter and the Gael sharing NI in peace. Then speaker Hay calls on UUP's Reg Empey to respond, he calls for sense of purpose to be put in the executive as not once in the year have all the Executive party leaders met to discuss a way forward, he says we seem to be embarking on a St Andrews Mark 2 because of the current crisis over the devolution of Policing and Justice, our problems lie in Stormont not in London or Dublin claims Reg Empey. He criticises SF for brinkmanship on this issue, he fears damage has been done to the Executive and he blames SF. Then speaker Hay calls SDLP's Mark Durkan who complains about the method of nominating the First/Deputy First Ministers, he would prefer a vote of MLAs but he promises the SDLP will work with them, he then lists problems in economy, education, water bills and he criticises SF's political show boating this week over devolution of Policing and Justice, he says problems in the St Andrews Agreement are coming home to roost, they should be discussed here in the Assembly and not in London with G Brown. Then back in the studio, political commentators Mark Davenport, Brian Feeney and Alex Kane discuss the leaders speeches and today's event in Stormont reading between the lines. (3.30pm Thurs)

Description:
Introduced by Noel Thompson, following today's swearing in of First/Deputy First Ministers P Robinson and M McGuiness and their promises to work hard for the people of NI, but after a week of reported threats that SF would not vote for Robinson and bring the assembly down, Noel Thompson asks a selection of local MLAs are we in for a bumpy ride from now on. Around the table are SDLP's Mark Durkan, SF's John O'Dowd, DUP's G Campbell and UUP's Fred Cobain. M Durkan begins by criticising SF for allowing the DUP to negotiate a veto at the St Andrews talks, in return for a promise of an Irish Language Act that is worth nothing, this week's phoney crisis was just SF trying to recover damage its negotiating stance already did. SF's John O'Dowd says the outcome at St Andrews was the result of all party talks not just SF/DUP, he maintains they are pushing for Irish Language Act and devolution of Policing and Justice, this week SF just highlighted difficulties in the areas, and set out their stall to P Robinson. DUP's G Campbell says SF manufactured this crisis last week, on Policing and Justice it won't happen with confidence in Unionist community not present. He wants progress on IRA army council's removal and parading issues also. Fred Cobain (UUP) says we are in a process now, and concessions will be made to SF. We will have devolution of Policing/Justice and an Irish Language Act from Westminster would save DUP blushes at Stormont. A time frame for these items will be worked out. M Durkan (SDLP) feels the DUP will accept Policing/Justice sooner rather than later. Then G Campbell says no back door deal will be done within 6-8 weeks, they are going to G Brown about other issues, the IRA Army Council and parading, SF's J O'Dowd say to tackle lower crime, we should control Justice and Policing locally, he believes the Army Council is no threat to the process and the DUP are using it as an excuse. M Durkan feels the issue shouldn't be inflated into another crisis, he outlines his position on this and ends up arguing with John O'Dowd about the vote on 28 day ? at Westminster. Fred Cobain (UUP) criticises the DUP over the existence of the IRA Army Council and ends up arguing with G Campbell over who's at fault. John O'Dowd mentions loyalist weapons issue. Reg Empey's view that party leaders haven't met for a year is discussed, and it returns to the going to London debate. P Robinson working for everyone doesn't go against a Unionist Party advancing a unionist agenda says G Campbell. He won't comment on speculation he'll be next Cultural Minister but he's against an Irish Language Act. In the If You Ask Me Spot, journalist Finnola O'Connor talks about the DUP reflex of showing contempt for nationalist concerns even post Paisleyism, she says the recent Dromore by election result gave the DUP the jitters even though Jim Allister is more like the Wizard of Oz then the one true voice of Unionism, she accesses Gordon Brown's attitude to DUP Westminster votes and the 42 detention vote that's on the horizon, and how Brown's attitude would be swayed by those 9 votes. Next N Thompson presents a film report on cold calling by politicians of their voters, apparently G Brown has been doing it in England, Julia Paul's film report explores how that might work in NI, with a vox pop of opinions from the public and from Conall McDevitt (PR Firm) Geoff Hill of the News Letter, Catherine Toner of Willis and Brown. Programme ends with a comic taxi driver routine on the week's news. (Thurs)

Description:
This documentary examines the working political relationship between the previous First Minister Ian Paisley Snr (DUP) and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuiness (SF) it asks was their relationship for real and asks body language expert Dr Peter Collett to examine their dynamic. Programme begins with a profile of Oxford University's Prof of Behavioural Psychology and he admits he knows very little about NI politics, he expects to find something very unique in Belfast and he welcomes the change in NI, but is fascinated by the fact it's all got to do with these 2 people. Then a selection of TV clips is shown of McGuiness/Paisley with various people at meetings and all is very friendly. After these opening titles, the narrator recalls last December's trip to New York by the man to meet political and financial leaders there, to promote NI as open for business, it was the openness between the 2 leaders that amazed their hosts, actor Liam Neeson comments, then Senator Hilary Clinton and US Pres George Bush's remarks. Dr Peter Collett watches the TV clips of Paisley/McGuiness together, 5 years ago he done a similar study of British PM Tony Blair and Chancellor Gordon Brown which exposed the fake nature of their political friendship, he explains what he's looking for in the dynamics of the "chuckle brothers". Dr P Collett says their American trip was like the couples honeymoon, and it cemented their relationship, and he says both men knew by going there they would be feted. US Special Envoy to N Ireland Paula Dobriansky outlines the US attitude to the visit, to reaffirm its commitment to N Ireland. Congressman Richard Neil recalls the optimism about the visit, Irish immigration campaigner, Ciaran Staunton on the waiting warm reception M McGuiness is filmed walking with Paisley Jnr through the airport then he comment on the visual sign of a political change back home. Peter Collett says both men appear very different people from opposite ends of the spectrum but he highlights their similar characteristics usually when haranguing people, TV clips shown, then Nial O'Dowd of the Irish Voice Newspaper comments on their similarities, then Peter Collett on the "chuckle brothers" title, he uses old TV clips to look at politics of years gone by, which was serious and now, he feels humour has transformed politics in NI, their catch phrase in the USA is said to be "we are not here with a begging bowl" TV clips shown. The main New York event was a conference hosted by Bill Flynn for potential investors, Stan Gale of Gale International comments on NI's plus factors, then Bill Flynn of Mutual America's views. A clip shows the duo meeting New York Mayor M Bloomberg whom whey invited to lead a team to an investment conference in Belfast this year, Peter Collett talks about why politicians crack jokes, he shows examples of Paisley's humour, using TV clips, he comments on smiling as making people more approachable and less important and Paisley prefers laughter then smiling. The narrator says to make people work together give them a common enemy, she wonders did Tony Blair do that by making Peter Hain the NI Sec, Peter Collett looks at a film clip of them all in Stormont and analyses the body language between Hain and Paisley. Jim Dwyer of the New York Times points out the main issues before the USA at present, Afghanistan and Iraq, he says, NI situation isn't as important. More clips of Paisley/McGuiness then P Collett asks is there any real affection between them or is it just a working relationship, he says there is real chemistry between them, a genuine rapport and they smile at each other and are supportive of each other, he says their activities and movements are synchronised, he shows examples of this during TV interviews, and explains in detail the body language signals. After a private meeting in New York delegates leaving commented on McGuiness/Paisley's attitudes when in private, Bill Flynn was surprised at their harmony, then Tony Gale was impressed, at a NI bureau lunch and at a private dinner in a Manhattan apartment, Kiernan McLoughlin of the American Ireland Fund explains the significant contacts made including, superrich Loretta Brennan Glucksman who comments on how impressed she is with the two NI leaders. TV clip shows her introduce Paisley to speak, he done so without a script, the DUP stopped the TV crew filming, then Liam Neeson comments on his impression of Paisley/McGuiness. Then a serious of TV clips shows both men speaking in public abilities down through the years. Peter Collett says politics is about style in McGuiness 20 years ago, he read from notes, he's not connecting nowadays he's more relaxed and has no notes. In the old days Paisley is an animated, expressive speaker, Collett points out his abilities, today he's reading from notes which he never done before, he's abandoned his old style for the politics of today. Back in NY the last engagement was at the Stock Exchange who gave permission for filming, but the DUP officials wouldn't allow it. Peter Collett comments on the activities of the minders, he says they were worried about Paisley drifting off message. Collett highlights on such incident with film evidence of Paisley Jnr's annoyance. He compared them to low ranking males in a Chimpanzees colony. Collett then talks of McGuiness looking out for Paisley Snr, he shows a clip of McGuiness helping him down a kerb, and in another clip where Paisley's asked about leading the St Pat's Day march, McGuiness seeing this as provocative, body blocks and field the question. Collett asks is he protecting Paisley, himself or the new political order, then McGuiness explains his viewpoint. Next the delegation headed to Washington, Paula Dobriansky comments. Then Irish National ? Fr Sean McManus talks about his regard for Paisley. Peter Collett says when politicians get together the problem is how is going to be top dog. With NI's two leaders that's partly solved in their titles. First and deputy first, he uses TV clips to show how McGuiness appears to recognise this and Paisley refers to McGuiness as his deputy. Collett shows other examples using space etc, he says McGuiness behave the same with G Adams, for McGuiness what matters is getting the job done, however Collett highlights McGuiness use of the "steeple" gesture which he says is a sign of desire to be dominant. R Neal says NI is the longest running dispute in the history of the western world. Collett then explains that in the animal world you can see the pecking order by seeing who looks at who, he explains how chimps work, subordinates spend more time looking at superiors then vice versa, he says that's what we find with McGuiness/Paisley in public. McGuiness looks at Paisley more then vice versa, Collett highlights another example of gaze aversion, when George Bush spoke to the two men, McGuiness gave Bush his full attention but Paisley just looked ahead. Collett also shows Paisley using an upper handshake on B Ahern, this is another sub conscious way of asserting authority, the rule is the last person to affect a touch who wins and Paisley comes out on top, the person who makes the touch is the more powerful in political body language say Collett. He also analyses Hillary Clinton's meeting with Paisley/McGuiness in the Willard Hotel she's standing between both men, but her body is turned towards Paisley more than McGuiness, film clip shows, McGuiness isn't bothered with this, as Paisley speak her eyes road all over his face, like young girls do to impress older men, says Collett, she amplifies he gestures, for the benefit of the media. Phil Flynn wonders if both men had known each other years ago could NI have been saved so much strife. The programmes contributors all have their closing comments on Paisley/McGuiness. Then Peter Collett summarises.

The Donoughmore Kidnapping (1974)
Description:
Lord and Lady Donoughmore were kidnapped from their Clonmel stately home by the PIRA in 1974, it was an attempt to put pressure on the British government over its treatment of Republican prisoners. This programme tells the story of the kidnap with the couple's son Mark Healy Hutchinson comments and journalists Paul Howard. It also uses old TV film clips and readings from the written account of Lord Donoughmore. The programme begins by setting the scene of Ireland in the 1970s and the explosion of violence using film clips. In the Republic the threat was from within, the newly resurgent IRA. Paul Howard comments on the Republics national insecurity, he comments on the reason behind maverick IRA gangs operating in the South and then describes how the Donoughmore were chosen as a target. From a book of stately homes the narrator then provides some details on the Donoughmore's and their home Knocklofty House near Clonmel, their son Mark recalls growing up there, the estate employed 20 local families. One of those families was the Phelens, Joe the chauffeurs son recalls life then film clip of the Donoughmore's at the 1964 Tipperary Hunt. On June 4th the IRA gang arrived at Knocklofty House but the Donoughmore's were out. Joe Phelan's recalls the gang tying up his whole family he recalls the Donoughmore's arriving home and hearing gunshots, Mark their son describes what happened, then Lord Donoughmore's written account tells the story of being put into a car, Joe Phelan called the Garda, Donoughmore recalls the driver to the safe house. Twenty minutes later the Garda weren't there, Phelan phoned again. At daybreak their son Mark was told of the kidnapping, he recalls the event, and his concern because his children were with the parents at Knocklofty. An old film clip shows the "media circus" around Knocklofty as Joe Phelan recalls being interviewed, then an RTE June 5th 1974 TV clip shows his comments, and those of his mother Bridie Phelan, then Garda Chief/Superintendent Patrick Carey's view points. The abandoned kidnap car was found in Co Wicklow. In the safe house the Donoughmore were well fed according to Lord Donoughmore's account. Mark recalls the family gathering to wait on a ransom note. Back at the safe house Lady D asked the kidnappers what ransom they wanted but it was about hunger strikers in England and the Price sisters not about money she was told. In English prisons one prisoner had already died and 5 others including the Price sisters were ill. Paul Howard says this news scared the Donoughmore as it was out of their control. In Clonmel a TV clip shows the Mayor John Allen speaking at a public meeting condemning the kidnappers, Mark Hutchinson recalls, the IRA chiefs were also unhappy about the kidnapping as it gave the Cosgrave government an excuse to clamp down on the IRA. Paul Howard explains. The boredom of their captivity was broken with crosswords, Mark recalls a story his mother told him later about country football teams. Meanwhile the mediation of the SDLP's Paddy Devlin defused the hunger strike issue, Paul Howard recalls the release of the Donoughmores in Dublin, his writing on the subject is read out, Frank O'Brien the Phoenix Park gatekeeper recalls finding the couple in a TV clip. Then a further TV clip shows the Donoughmores and their family that evening talking to reporters about their treatment, Lord Donoughmore tells reporters he's an Irishman, who has no influence with the British government at all, then further TV clips of the family's reunion shown plus interviews. The Garda spent hours interviewing the Donoughmores in an effort to trace their kidnappers, his son says he held back info as he felt a sense of sympathy for his captors. On June 9th 1974 the funeral of hunger Thomas Caughan was held, TV film clip shown, at the same time more threats were made against the family and demands for money made, Lord Donoughmore's response explained. The programme then recalls the effects on the Phelan family of that night of violence, then Mark recalls how it affected his family. In 1981 Lord Donoughmore died and Knocklofty House and contents were sold. Later the following year Dutch Industrialist Tiedie Herrema (Oct 75) was kidnapped.

Part 1
Description:
This programme is introduced by ex CIA agent Robert Baer who claims to have worked for the US Government in the Lebanon, it's the first of a two-part series which examines the history of the use of the car bomb by Terrorists around the world in the 20th century, the programme contains television images of car bombings from around the world, it begins with Bob Baer saying this is the story of how the century of the car, turned into the century of the car bomb. He says the real threat is not nuclear weapons but car bombs which have shaped 20th century conflict. Television images of explosions shown, Baer returns to Beirut and describes the threat he lived under while there from car bombs, he says you can't defend against it, he recalls precautions he took, but his station had a 60% casualty toll, he recalls the US Embassy being hit by a suicide car bomber with television clip shown, six of his CIA friends were killed, an eyewitness describes the aftermath, Baer describes the effect the bomb had on him, then a Lebanese bomb disposal officer Mahumoud Kashab recalls his job back then, and how he lost his hands in a bomb blast. A Film clip shows February 14th 2005 bomb blast that killed the Lebanese Prime Minister, he was killed even though he was well protected. Baer says the car bombs being used in Iraq today were developed in Lebanon. Television Film clip shows series of Iraqi explosions. However Baer says it wasn't Arabs who invented the car bomb, it was an American invention he says. In New York's Wall Street in 1920 the city was rocked by a massive explosion, it was the world's first car bomb. Historian Beverley Cage recalls the blast story, on September 16th 1920, at the epicentre of American capitalism which kills 40 people, the bomb was in a peddler's wagon, an Italian anarchist Mario Budda was blamed, they wanted two Italian anarchists freed from prison, they were executed by the Federal Government after a show trial.

This was the world's first car bomb war each side planted four car bombs killing 120 people in May 1948 it stopped when full war broke out. Baer recalls the same pattern of lies used by car bombers of all sides. Then Israeli Historian Uri Milstein recalls a Palestinian car bomb attempt to kill the Jewish peoples' government and their thinking behind the attack that failed to kill Ben Gurion the Israeli Prime Minister, but besides political war, the car bombs have been used by Sicilian Mafia to make business rivals disappear, Baer visits Sicily to access Mafia influence, and in Palermo finds people won't ever talk about the Mafia. He says by 1957 the old fashioned Mafia changed when with its American cousins they began to organise the world heroin trade. In 1963 two Mafia clans fell out, Marcella Cezare was the first Mafia boss killed by a car bomb, his nephew recalls Cezare, who had many people killed, he recalls the car bombing and aftermath. A journalist recalls the Mafia's second car bombing which went wrong. Still photo shown, policemen had approached the car as it was suspicious it blew up when they opened the boot, seven policemen were killed, within weeks 1,200 Mafia were arrested, but the car bomb was bad for business. The Mafia didn't use it again for 17 years, when the Mafia used it to assassinate Judges, attracting more revenge from the Italian Stage, Baer summarises the Mafia's problem. Baer then switches to the USA in the mid-60s when Midwest students were in revolt, Film clip shown.
