Description:
Noel Thompson interviews the NI Secretary of State, Owen Patterson, about his plan to find an agreed way forward on dealing with the past by calling all-party talks. He is asked with no consensus at Stormont, what's the point? In response he outlines the current position; he has asked the main parties to nominate someone he can talk too and this will take place in the coming weeks. He outlines the government's position, seeking praise for Saville, Wright and Nelson inquires. He said on Finucane, the Torries inherited an impasse as the family turned down the terms of the previous government inquiry offer. He also said he told the Finucane family this government would try and get to the truth, but wouldn't guarantee any particular method of getting there. He goes on to back the efforts of lawyer David De Silva, Noel Thompson reminds him the family doesn't accept that. Patterson rejects the SDLP claim that the government is protecting itself from revelations its agents did any wrong. Patterson is disappointed at the reaction of the Finucane family. He mentions the CAIN archive, Linenhall Library and the Historical Enquiries Team (HET), and goes on to argue about who should pay for any new process for dealing with the past. Asked again about what his listening to the parties has revealed, he said he can't prejudge but it's built around archives and agreements on that. He highlights people's satisfaction with the HET reports, which get some way to the truth. In the "if you ask me" spot, Fionnuala O'Connor talks about Patterson inspiring secret confidence amongst parties here that he can find a solution to dealing with the past. She mentions Boston college tapes, independent inquires, HET reports, Sinn Fein's truth recovery process and Patterson's urge to use Historians rather than lawyers to get to the truth with an agreed history of the Troubles. She also discusses truth commissions and their failings. Noel Thompson then looks at two recent films, one about Thatcher and a documentary about Bernadette Devlin and examines their approach to dealing with the past in fact or fiction. This begins with clips from each of the programmes, then in the studio Belfast telegraph's Liam Clarke said he liked the Thatcher film's approach and the archive clips in the Bernadette Devlin documentary, but also said it was completely uncritical. University of Ulster's Lisa Fitzpatrick comments; the Thatcher film didn't get to grips with the politics of the time, just Thatcher's emotional responses to them. Both discuss the historical truth, if any, in the films and whether the representations were accurate portrayals or not. They list things left out of both films and discuss what the writers hoped to portray in their characters and the difficulty of making films about people who are still alive. Programme ends with comic taxi driver routine. (NO TIME GIVEN BY PH Thur)

Josephine said the Kingsmill attack stopped the loyalist killings in that area. In a war, she says, things happen you might not agree with, but you live with it. When Josephine's Husband was arrested for explosives offences she stepped back from IRA activities to look after their two children, she recalls the support she got from republicans. In 1979 she joined Sinn Fein. In northern prisons ending of political status led to the hunger strikes.

Still photos of victims shown, one of those killed was his friend Gerry Donaghey. The film switches to spring 2011, at the policing board.

He talks about his upcoming interview with the Department of Justice, then he's filmed at the ruins of the Crumlin Road courthouse, where he stood trial for bombing buildings in Derry. He refused to recognise the court and recalls the internal republican debate on the pros and cons of this tactic. His case was chosen as one to recognise the court which caught the prosecution on the wrong foot and he won his case. The story then switches to dissident republicans killing of PSNI Constable Ronan Kerr. Gerrard recalls his reaction on hearing the news and his views on such killings at this time compared to the past; Matt Baggott (PSNI Chief Constable) comments at board are shown, followed by a film of united community response at Ronan's funeral. On 1st June Policing board members gather together for their AGM in Belfast, Gerrard fails by two votes to get the Chairman's job and is still vice Chairman, he explains his reaction "that's democracy".

John Howcroft says there is a massive process of change going on within the UDA, a reimaging of North Belfast, he says the UDA now sits at a table of accountability with the police, church men and city counsellors and they should deal with UDA members involved in crime. Noel Thompson quotes UDA's North Belfast leader John Bunting as saying there are UDA people involved in crime, John Howcroft says in North Belfast they will be expelled and the police should deal with them. He explains the role of the so called table of accountability in dealing with local North Belfast crime and accepts the UDA is no longer extorting money from shop keepers in the Yorkgate complex for 4 years now. John Howcroft explains why the UDA has a right to sit at a table of accountability of community organisations, then answers a question why doesn't the UDA just go away, which he says is a process of demilitarising mind sets, John Howcroft comments on the Independent Monitoring Commission (IMC) concerns about UDA activity and is pushed on why do we need a UDA at all, again he highlights the process of change taking time with lots of sensitivities. Next in the 'if you ask me' spot journalist Fionnuala O'Connor gives her views on the decision of catholic grammar schools to defy the catholic hierarchy over academic selection, as many catholic grammar schools decide to stick with selection.

Eamonn McCann says statistics are not everything, he recalls the housing conditions where he lived in the Bogside and the population growth of that time when house building stopped. Eamonn McCann's parents where on the housing list for 22 years. Brian Walker then says it is untrue the unionist government starved Derry of jobs in the 1950s, Eamonn McCann insists discrimination was in the public sector, not one catholic had a job in Guildhall, both agree gerrymandering did exist.

Noel Thompson discusses dealing with the past with DUP's Jeffery Donaldson and Sinn Fein's Mitchel McLaughlin as the Northern Ireland Secretary Owen Patterson held talks with the local parties this week, also this week a Community Relations Council report pointed out the obvious we are a divided society, so to what extent will our future be determined by how we approach our legacy issues. Noel Thompson begins by asking Mitchel McLaughlin about his view of the DUP and the Northern Ireland Office agreement on no amnesty and no truth commission, he wants some new thinking on these issues, and he says the bottom line for victims and survivors is they want to know what happened. Jeffery Donaldson says justice is about bringing people to account, he says Sinn Fein's proposal denies victims and survivors justice, he accepts no one size fits all and many would accept truth, but others have the right to get justice if they want it. Mitchel McLaughlin says if DUP were consistent then that should apply to army and RUC's victims and loyalists. Jeffery Donaldson says they do not want a hierarchy of victims, but Sinn Fein do he says, he does not think a truth commission will work and recalls Martin McGuinness's evidence to Saville Inquiry and Gerry Adams denials he was in the Provisional IRA. He says why sacrifice justice for a partial truth, Mitchel McLaughlin defends Martin McGuinness's role at the Saville Inquiry, he avoids saying if IRA people would be named in the truth commission. Jeffery Donaldson calls this an amnesty and rejects the idea the army have already amnesty here, he mentions Kingsmills denials by the IRA and says IRA should talk to the Smithwick Tribunal in Dublin and come clean. Mitchell McLaughlin says the IRA did give evidence to Smithwick. Noel Thompson quotes An Phoblacht on uncomfortable conversations that are needed, Mitchell McLaughlin says he's in agreement with that, Sinn Fein want truth he says. Jeffery Donaldson says truth can't be substitute for justice. On the Community Relations report Mitchell McLaughlin says failure to agree on the past is inhibiting the future. Jeffery Donaldson says injustice and hurt must be addressed. In the 'if you ask me spot' Newton Emerson gives his views on Peter Robinson's call for less negativity from the local press, he criticizes DUP MP David Simpson for saying 756 people died here due to fuel poverty, he accuses DUP of playing along local pressure groups and poverty pimping as he calls it, that ensures negative headlines for years to come and calls it a self-serving circus with 161 Stormont press officers, with Peter Robinson at the top of a scare story machine. Next Noel Thompson introduces a Julia Paul film report from Strabane on the links between local schools and the US business. Pupils from Holy Cross are filmed taking part in a video business conference with a US business which is considering selling its products in Europe. Johnny McKane Strabane Academy comments on the products and the student market research, it is part of export clever programme. Holy Cross Principle Maria Doherty praises the programme as cross community, a vehicle of collaboration. Then vox pop of pupils views, then comments of Geraldine Stafford an economic development manager. Next Noel Thompson previews the European stability treaty which is to be put to a referendum in the Republic of Ireland, he asks is it a needed confidence booster or a bankers charter condemning generations to bondage, he is joined from Dublin's yes and no camps, Sinn Fein's Padraig Mac Lochlainn TD from the no camp and Labour TD Dominic Hannigan from the yes camp debate the issues involved.

Description:
After the collapse of the recent UVF Supergrass trial Mandy McAuley explores the Supergrass issue and asks questions about collusion and the lack of prosecutions of agents and informers of RUC Special Branch and army handlers. Begins with a film clip of UVF defendants walking free from court, DUP's Nigel Dodds' views on the case, then speculation that a senior UVF figure Gary Hegarty is going to be the next Supergrass, with journalist Brian Rowan's views on Hegarty's senior UVF rank. Mandy McAuley then profiles former Police Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan's Ballast Report findings on the Mount Vernon UVF and its links to the RUC's Special Branch. The report examined 15 killings over a 10 year period by North Belfast UVF. The gang was riddled with RUC informers. Nuala O'Loan wanted two inquiries, one into the UVF murderers and the other into the allegation their handlers permitted them to kill with impunity. 5 years on the latter inquiry appears to be going nowhere, then Nuala O'Loan is interviewed on her views and why the police officers involved in killing are not prosecuted, then Brian Rowan comments on who was pulling the strings of the UVF killers and directing the Dirty War. The programme then profiles the UVF killing of UDA's Tommy English on 31/10/00 at his home by Mount Vernon UVF men, reconstruction shown with the recollections of Doreen English, his son Mark English and his daughter Charlease English. CCTV footage of the killer buying a sledge hammer shown, Doreen recalls that man was her brother Neil Pollock, family photos shown, he was found guilty, Doreen appeals to Neil to do the right thing. Doreen comments on animosity between her husband and UVF's Mark Haddock and their UDA and UVF run-ins, another UVF man John Bond (who was acquitted) was Doreen's brother in law and there was personal hatred there also. Doreen explains the UVF supergrasses the Stewart brothers handed themselves in to police in 2009 apparently after seeing Thomas Junior killed in a motorbike accident, Doreen tells what they said about this incidents effect on them, then Charlease's views, Judge Gillen's comments on the Stewart brothers is read out. Programme asks about case cost at £15 million, and how could the Public Prosecution Service have thought the Stewarts were creditable witnesses. Director of Public Prosecutions Barra McGrory gives his answer, then the programme profiles Raymond McCord's role in getting Nuala O'Loan to begin Operation Ballast in 2000, his son was killed by Mount Vernon UVF. She found 4 of the Chief suspects were special branch agents and were not investigated, one was Mark Haddock, Doreen English comments on Mark Haddock's links to her husband's killing. Nuala O'Loan's report also named Mark Haddock in this case. Then Mandy McAuley comments on her inquiries into Mark Haddock's role in 2006, she says he was an informer from he was 17 years old, she quotes what CID's Trevor McIlwraith told her, his interview is shown, he says senior RUC officers let Mark Haddock off. Programme then profiles the March 1992 murder bid on John Flynn by the UVF as detailed in the Ballast Report, John Flynn tells what happens then Trevor McIlwraith says it was Mark Haddock. In 1997 UVF tried to kill him again, Nuala O'Loan said collusion was systematic, she comments on the clear evidence she found in comments, she wanted an inquiry into collusion but so far the successors have done nothing. Then solicitor Kevin Winters comments on the Historical Enquiry Team inquiry in 2007 into the Ballast Report findings, but in 2009 the police serious crime branch took it over and 3 years later there is little movement with only two officers assigned to investigate collusion due to lack of resources, Nuala O'Loan gives her reaction, then current Ombudsman's statement, also victim's families are troubled, Nuala O'Loan and QC Richard Harvey sitting as an independent monitoring panel of the police inquiry have concerns about lack of inquiry into handlers. She explains her position, then Kevin Winters views on what he says is the downsizing of the key investigation that needs to take place against special branch handlers, this view is shared by Daniel Horner of the Committee on the Administration of Justice. Mandy McAuley then speculates if a Gary Haggarty Supergrass trial will finally bring the situation around the handlers to a head, he turned grass in 1997 when charged with John Harbinson's murder, film clip shown then Brian Rowan discusses UVF fears over Gary Hegarty and his creditability, PUP's Ken Wilkinson warns that these trials will destabilize loyalism, Brian Rowan responds, Ken Wilkinson however wants to know who the handlers where. Mandy McAuley comments on the recent Haggarty tapes made, then Nuala O'Loan on that evidence, then John Flynn's reaction and DUP's Nigel Dodds' views. Brian Rowan says 'honest referee' became played in the war, Nuala O'Loan says the truth will come out eventually.

Description:
Noel Thompson introduces Northern Ireland Secretary Own Patterson who this week met the relatives of the Omagh Bomb victims who want a public inquiry, he says the priority for him is to see the perpetrators caught and jailed and he says the chief constable told him this is a very live investigation. Owen Patterson will meet the families again to see what the new evidence is that they say will help their case to have a Public inquiry, he repeats his scepticism on Public inquiries. He will not speculate if the families 'new evidence' would undermine the police inquiry as ombudsman Nuala O'Loan's report did in 2001. Next Owen Patterson replies to local politicians criticisms of the Queens speech bills referring to Northern Ireland, he says that 14 of the bills will apply to Northern Ireland and that Northern Ireland largely now deals with its own affairs and that is a good thing, he then defends welfare reforms and says that will help poorer families here, he says they will make work pay, he then rejects Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness's suggestion that the Northern Ireland Office should dissolve and leave Northern Ireland, he outlines the issues like the national crime agency which makes it essential that the Northern Ireland office stay here and in the British cabinet. In the 'if you ask me' spot, commentator Alex Kane talks about the current Tory and Liberal coalition government's current difficulties between posh Nick and even posher Dave. Then in a film report Julia Paul visits the Linenhall Library in Belfast which houses books by Saintfield's Francis Hutchinson and examines the man's achievements and his contribution to Liberal democracy, his writings influences the United Irish Men, the French revolution and the revolt in America against British rule. At the Linenhall presentation 47 more of Hutchinson's books are handed over by the Saintfield Heritage Society, academics and writers Phillip Orr, Martyn Todd and Sinn Fein counsellor Tom Hartley discuss the importance of the men in history, then Linenhall Library's John Killen's comments. At Stormont the UUP asked MLA's to support a European Union definition of a victim as a person who has suffered physical or mental harm or emotional suffering, economic loss directly caused by a criminal offence, it generated little agreements among MLA's. In the studio Tom Elliot (UUP) and Colm Eastwood (SDLP) debate the pros and cons of this definition if it was applied to Northern Ireland. Tom Elliott denies they are trying to create a hierarchy of victims and praises the definition. Colm Eastwood outlines why he rejects it as it is not applicable to civil conflict, he calls it a side show as it excludes a look of people as an example he mentions Sam Devenny, beaten to death by the RUC in 1969, that has never been called a crime and that definition excludes him, he also mentions 1971 Ballymurphy massacre by the British Army. Tom Elliott avoids saying if the Bloody Sunday victims would be victims under this definition, he switches his words to Robert Kerr and Stephen Carroll's deaths. Colm Eastwood says arguing over the definition deflects us from looking after victim's needs, justice and truth and dealing with the past, he avoids saying if he thinks the Provisional IRA's Loughgall dead where victims. Tom Elliot and Colm Eastwood do not agree on the 2006 definition. Programme ends with comic taxi driver routine. (Thurs)

Description:
After 6 years of stalling the Stormont Executive has agreed a plan to redevelop the 27 acres of the former Girdwood army base in North Belfast, this programme examines the political deal and the controversy over it, as the site will be largely used for business, but the houses in it will be designated for Protestants and Catholics will be kept half a mile apart with no shared housing, agreement has been reached now as a £10 million grant to develop Girdwood from European Economic Community is about to run out.. Programme begins with Sinn Fein's Carál Ní Chuilín and DUP's Nigel McCausland's comments, then commentator Alex Kane's views. SDLP's Alex Attwood's comments on the absence of the Northern Ireland Housing Executive from having a role in allocating the houses, a former Housing Executive chairman agrees, the commentator Brian Feeney criticises Sinn Fein for lying down on the issue of fair housing on this site, as Catholic housing needs have not been met, Reverent John Dunlop recalls his initial hopes for the site 6 years ago, a shared and neutral space at the heart of the problem is housing need, with a growing Catholic population in need of houses on one side on the other a declining Protestant population that says it has been left to decay, then add to the mixed views of sectarian conflict. Neil Jarmon of the Institute for Conflict Research comments on these issues. Then Brian Feeney says the real issue is votes and unionist fears that North Belfast will become a Sinn Fein constituency, Housing Executive figures show a clear majority of those needing housing in North Belfast are Nationalists.

Nelson McCausland explains, then SDLP's Alex Attwood's comments, but Neil Jarmon says it is about voting demographics of North Belfast. Oldpark community worker Janice Beggs explains their campaign to get Protestants to return to Oldpark area, then Brian Feeney is skeptical about Nelson McCausland's vision, he refers to 1986 similar attempt, and UUP's Fed Cobain believes large numbers of Protestants returning to North Belfast is nonsense. Alex Kane gives his views, then Sid McDowell former Housing Executive chairman's views on fairness in allocating houses the reason why the Housing Executive was founded. In 2011 SDLP minister then Alex Attwood announced plans to build 200 houses in Girdwood, the vast majority would have gone to Catholics if built, 4 months later Nelson McCausland became minister and stalled the decision. SDLP's Alban Maginness's comments at the time shown, then Sid McDowell's reaction to Nelson McCausland's decision and Brian Feeney's views.

Description:
Live on BBCNI, Stephen Nolan examines the recently announced Girdwood barracks plan agreed by Stormont's executive, he says it is more than a building project as it give us a snapshot of where we stand in Northern Ireland as a divided community, he lists the facts as according to the Housing Executive 90% of people in need of housing are Catholic, in 2011 then Minister Alex Attwood wanted to build 220 houses on Girdwood site but when DUP's Nelson McCausland took over that ministry he halted the plan in what Sinn Fein's Conor Maskey called a sectarian decision. Then this week DUP and Sein Fein agree a deal but keep the details secret, Nolan asks are these houses to be allocated on need or political gain in a sectarian carve up. Then Nolan introduces a film clip from last night's Spotlight on the issue, showing nationalist housing crisis in North Belfast and DUP spending millions in protestant lower Oldpark area with only 3 on the waiting list. The Housing Executive denied any role in the Girdwood deal, Sinn Fein and DUP did not take part in Spotlight, they have also not taken part in the Nolan show tonight. Nolan introduces his panel, SDLP environment minister Alex Attwood, lower Shankill community worker Ian McLaughlin and BBCNI's political editor Mark Davenport, who begins the conversation by giving historic background to this site and North Belfast's sectarian history and political geography, he outlines the shared facilities on the site but the housing will be segregated and a quarter of a mile apart. Housing Executive figures show the majority on the waiting list are Catholic, Stormont PR photo of politicians on the site is shown, but no journalists were near them when it was taken and no journalists were allowed to ask questions says Nolan, he asks Alex Attwood is the deal good for nationalists?, he understands the deal but asks was it worth the price paid which he describes as the ideal of allocating housing on need is not the principle used on this site, he goes on to defend party colleagues Alban Maginness's presence in the photo and his record in North Belfast. Nolan questions Alban Maginness's silence on the issue and all the politicians avoidance of the media, he calls on them to stand up and defend their decisions, Alex Attwood again defends Alban Maginness's integrity over 40 years and explains he is there to dismiss the possibility that values of fairness here have been ignored, he is asked has Alban Maginness made a mistake by won't, he says people of integrity saw this as an opportunity to move that site forward, then Nolan asks Shankill community worker Ian McLaughlin why he thinks this is a good deal for Girdwood. He says in 2006 when the site was handed over North Belfast community relations were non-existent, today we are in a better place, he believes this will be an economic driver for the area, he commends Sinn Fein and the DUP's decision, he says the lower Oldpark area needs the regeneration, he wants to know how many houses will be on the Girdwood site, Nolan again attacks politicians silence on this topic, then from the audience Carrickhill community worker Frank Dempsey calls for political transparency, he wonders what is going on and is shocked by Sinn Fein's position, then from the Foyle studio Eamonn McCann says it is significant that Girdwood houses will not be allocated on need, he recalls the Civil Rights Association campaign 40 years ago, he says we are seeing the sectarian manipulation of allocation of public housing, it is just a more balanced bigotry than we used to have, he calls Nelson McCausland a sectarian disgrace, he defends the ordinary working class Protestants, then Ian McLoughlin says the Girdwood fixation will not end housing problems. Nolan again says the story here is about dealing with need. Mandy McAuley the spotlight journalist then says in 9 years this was the most difficult stories she has dealt with, she explains the difficulty she has in getting the Housing Executive facts and figures, due to Nelson McCausland blocks. Then Stephen Nolan asks Mark Davenport about the North Belfast voting situation for the Stormont parties, he says that electoral geography does come into this as Sinn Fein have gradually been closing the gap on the DUP in North Belfast, then Nolan shows the audience a pamphlet to encourage people to the Oldpark area from Nelson McCausland which has been sent to Protestants only. Alex Attwood gives his reaction, he critises anti- democratic command and control attitude of certain Stormont parties, on the leaflet he blames the long hand of political interference in the Housing Executive, the leaflet should have went to all people he says, Nolan pushes him to 'call it' one way or another, is this leaflet wrong, Alex Attwood answers the leaflet is wrong but also political pressure on the Housing Executive is also wrong, we must defend the Housing Executive he says.

Description:
Noel Thompson talks to a studio panel of Chris Little (Alliance) Conal McDevitt (SDLP) and Jonathan Bell (DUP) about the Alliance Party's decision to leave talks at Stormont on Cohesion, Integration and Sharing (CSI) and their motivation for doing so, it begins with Chris Little being asked does this not show how ineffectual you have been, he says they have withdrawn because of concern about the Sinn Fein and DUP approach to CSI and their lack of commitment to the key issues, he outlines the faults in the CSI document, then the DUP's Jonathan Bell says the CSI document is made up of action plans, he says the talks are kept confidential amongst 5 parties to give the public greater ownership, he claims he was discussing the Alliance Party's 7 points on CSI when he got an email to say they were walking out, SDLP's Conal McDevitt feels Alliance should not leave a process based on an idea nothing is agreed until everything is agreed, and this process was not near decision time. Then Chris Little says Jonathan Bell talks about the process is a complete smoke screen and he challenges Conal McDevitt to say if he actually thinks they will get delivery from the working group and the DUP and Sinn Fein, Conal McDevitt says he cannot judge that until he sees the final document, he then talks about the flags situation and the 3 proposals, Jonathan Bell says the Union flag should be flow appropriately, he then critises the Alliance boycott and says all Alliance proposals were being discussed. Noel Thompson then asks the panel about the Girdwood plan which seems to show separate housing plans for Catholics and Protestants on opposite ends of the site, saying there is no sign of integration there, Jonathan Bell says all areas representatives built a consensus solution, then Conal McDevitt says Girdwood housing must go to people who need them, Jonathan Bell says it is not just hot air and says that young people are showing the way forward. Noel Thompson says to Alliance should you not withdraw from the Executive, Chris Lyttle replies that is a separate issue, DUP and SDLP give their answer to the question when will the CSI document be produced. The next topic introduced by Noel Thompson is the referendum in the Republic of Ireland on the European stability treaty, imposing further asperity measures in return for more access to European money, the referendum is seen as a test of Ireland's faith in Europe, a film report from Ciaran Tracey in Dublin talks to Fianna Fail's Michael Martin from the Yes campaign, then Sinn Fein's Mary Lou McDonald from the No campaign, then the views of Professor Phillip Lane from TED, who favours a yes vote, then vox pop of Dublin people on the streets.

Description:
Noel Thompson begins with a studio discussion between UUP Leader Mike Nesbitt and Sinn Fein's national chairman Declan Kearney about Sinn Fein's recent reaching out to unionists and his call for greater political leadership so that politicians can be partners in reconciliation, as well as in government. Mike Nesbitt begins by explaining why he is sceptical about Sinn Fein's call as he feels it is a party political overture, he says the UUP is about to publish its own thoughts on DWP on Monday 11th June, and he will expect the same degree of cynicism when they publish their paper. He will however give the Sinn Fein paper house room, the paper has 22 paragraphs, Mike Nesbitt says he has 28 follow up questions, he then asks Declan Kearney how long he expects before the UUP response, and he compares this Sinn Fein document to the Downing Street Declaration (1994) Declan Kearney says this is an opportunity to open up a new phase of the peace process, Mike Nesbitt asks Declan Kearney to persuade him of the virtues of an united Ireland, Mike Nesbitt repeats his request several times while Declan talks about reconciliation themes, Mike Nesbitt asks Declan Kearney if it was a war what were your war crimes? Declan Kearney tells Mikes Nesbitt he has nothing to fear from reconciliation or equality. Noel Thompson points out to Declan Kearney that unionists see Sinn Fein saying I am not sorry I did this but saying I am sorry if what I did hurt you, he asks him can he see the difference, Declan Kearney does not want to reduce reconciliation to just one word, during the war language was used to dehumanise and demonise, he says he wants both sides to find language to communicate and understand each other and build trust. Mike Nesbitt then will not say what his party is proposing until 11th June and is adamant about that, although pushed by Noel Thompson. Declan Kearney invites unionism to join Sinn Fein in reconciliation he says reconciliation is each side acknowledging the hurt it inflicted and suffered and then if possible trying to reduce that pain, Mike Nesbitt then is asked how would he like to see victims involved in this process, he points out the differences in the views of victims, Declan Kearney says we should not become prisoners to our past, and the future should not be slowed down by the legacy of the past, Mike Nesbitt asks Declan Kearney did 3,500 die needlessly, Declan Kearney says we must stop the past happening again, Mike Nesbitt says if Sinn Fein do not say their violence was wrong that makes the process incredibly difficult . In the 'if you ask me' spot, Fionnuala Meredith gives her views on former Labour Prime Minister Tony Blair's appearance before the Levison inquiry into press standards as a masterclass in political confidence she compares his plausibility to that of our local politicians who are crude and rough around the edges, she mentions Jonathan Bell (DUP) and Martina Anderson's (Sinn Fein) remarks about sectarianism in golf clubs and other inter-party clashes and point scoring, including Girdwood housing plans. Next Noel Thompson introduces a film report on the Housing Executive's Green new deal which has been scrapped by DUP's Nelson McCausland.

Stephen Nolan's first topic is today's news story that republican Evelyn Glenholmes is to sit on a new Victims and Survivors forum, she was once labelled by the press as Britain's most wanted woman but was never charged of any offences, aged 16 she was shot and wounded by loyalist gunmen in the Short Strand area of Belfast. Newspaper clips about Evelyn Glenholmes shown, then the panel are introduced, UUP's Mike Nesbitt, Sinn Fein's Alex Maskey and victims commissioner Brendan McAllister, then Stephen Nolan asks an audience member Janet Hunter for her views on the appointment of Evelyn Glenholmes, she says she is devastated, her brother was killed by the provisional IRA 25 years ago, she recalls the effect on her family, her brother was in the UDR, then Sinn Fein's Alex Maskey gives his reaction, he questions why Nolan is doing the show when all the names of the forum have not been released yet, he mentions Evelyn Glenholmes being shot at 16 and says she is a victim and a republican who helped to build the peace process. Then John Magee tells of his sister's murder in Manor Street aged 16 and the impact on his family, she was killed by loyalists, then UUP's Mike Nesbitt says the forum should have a public process for selecting members, he says that Evelyn Glenholmes selection is rubbing their noses in the dirt, Mike Nesbitt and Alex Maskey clash over who is a victim here and the 2006 order definition. Mike Nesbitt says the voice of republican victims should be heard but not using the voice of such a notorious person. Alex Maskey says the names of British security forces who will be on the forum, and he says Mike Nesbitt cannot pick who the republican voice is, Alex Maskey says he will accept a paratrooper on the forum if one is selected. Mike Nesbitt still questions the value of high profile Evelyn Glenholmes on the forum when it alienates many others, commissioner Brendan McAllister then defends their choice of Evelyn Glenholmes, saying the forum process was two years in the making, he outlines the legal position, the 2006 order and how Evelyn Glenholmes is qualified to be on the forum, the Forum's 25 victims are approached on their knowledge of the victims sector, he is questioned here about who selected Evelyn Glenholmes, Mike Nesbitt interrupts and Brendan McAllister goes on to defend the 25 member forum and their different views, again Mike Nesbitt questions Evelyn Glenholmes selection. Audience victim Janet Hunter makes allegation that Evelyn Glenholmes was a bomber which Stephen Nolan halts, Alex Maskey again says the forum will respect broad views of opinion, he defends Evelyn Glenholmes reputation again, then another audience victim Manya Dickinson whose father was killed by a Provisional IRA bomb in 1990, says she is outraged by Evelyn Glenholmes appointment, she gives her views on this, the forum will not work she says, Alex Maskey asks her to accept republicans will accept Evelyn Glenholmes, Manya says she will not put up with it, she clashes with Alex Maskey on this issue and Alex Maskey rejects unionists telling republicans who they can pick, Mike Nesbitt mentions republican on pilot forum (Michael Culbert) as a better choice but does not name him, Alex Maskey does. Mike Nesbitt and Alex Maskey continue with this debate for several minutes, then from the audience a man doubts the ability of politicians here to move Northern Ireland on, he calls for younger politicians with more modern thinking.

After the announcement that Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness will meet the Queen, tonight Tara Mills begins with a Martina Purdy film report as shown in the BBC news on 22/06/12 which covers republican's previous behaviour during royal visits to Northern Ireland and Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness's journey from IRA leader to peace maker. Then in the studio Tara Mills questions Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams on the party's decision to meet the Queen this time and she asks Gerry Adams how significant is this meeting. Gerry Adams calls it a step on a journey, and hints there is some republican opposition to the meeting, he acknowledges unionists feeling for the monarchy, Gerry Adams comments on this being a big ask for the Queen also. He accepts her family has also suffered and says the meeting is good for national reconciliation. Gerry Adams answers a query about Sinn Fein getting political cover for the meeting by the Irish President being there and the event being outside jubilee events, he says that all made it easier for Sinn Fein. Gerry Adams denies Sinn Fein's decision will increase the dissident republican ranks, he explains the measures Sinn Fein took, the meetings it held to advance this initiative, Sinn Fein is united on fundamentals he says, this gesture goes beyond the rhetoric of reaching out to unionists. Gerry Adams then is asked about Conor Murphy being found guilty of discriminating against a Protestant when appointing the chair of Northern Ireland Water, Gerry Adams supports Conor Murphy's rejection of the findings. He goes back to discussing the positivity of next week's meeting and says Sinn Fein is not against a photo being taken of the handshake next week. Then Tara Mills invites comments from DUP's Jeffery Donaldson and Brian Feeney on the Sinn Fein and Queen meeting. Firstly Jeffery Donaldson calls it a good thing, long overdue and is part of the process of moving Northern Ireland forward, respecting each other's cultures its important people welcome her and recognise her as head of state, and its progress, although difficult for the Queen and Provisional IRA victims, then Brian Feeney is asked 'do unionists know how difficult this is for Sinn Fein and republicans?' he praises how cleverly organised the meeting is and the political cover used to make it acceptable to Sinn Fein, it is a big move on the part of the republicans. He says that unionists need to do a lot of work on reaching out to nationalists and republicans, he outlines how the Sinn Fein move had to follow the Queen's successful visit to Ireland last year, Gerry Adams recognises the significance of the Queen's visit to the 1916 Garden of Remembrance last year, both he and Brian Feeney also talk of the British Governments roll in making this happen, Gerry Adams says after the hand shake there should be no excuse for people not talking, nor should there be issues around the Irish Language when the Queen spoke a few words, he points out the significance of the colours in the Irish tricolour, he restates the Good Friday Agreement's view on the government of Ireland Act being conditional, Jeffery Donaldson replies why do republicans say no Orange Fest here, if he is into recognising cultures he wants orange tradition accommodated and he claims more and more Catholics are accepting and embracing the union. He points out to Gerry Adams that the Queen is not just the Queen of England, but of the United Kingdom including Northern Ireland. Gerry Adams replies that she is not his or Martin McGuinness's Queen and he will still be a republican after he meets the Queen, he comments on parades also. 30 years ago homosexuality was decriminalised, a film report from Yvette Shapiro asks is Northern Ireland a cold place for gay people, politician's attitudes, gay people's views and statistics all used in film report.

Tara Mills shows an interview done with Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness on Friday about his historic handshake with the British Queen, he begins by denying he was nervous, explaining the build up to the actual handshake and the work that went into the handshake. He sees it as building on the peace. She asks Martin McGuinness was there one defining moment in the last 40 years when you went from war to peace, he says he was on an incredible journey, there was nothing romantic about it and there's nothing glorious about war, he refers to a dismal failure of politics here and politicians, particularly on the British side. He says on that journey he could not ever have imagined he would meet the Queen or go into government alongside Ian Paisley. In this process he soon learned the art of the possible he says, he denies that Phillip tried to avoid talking to him in the Lyric by walking away and blames the media for that spin, his meeting with the royals was a genuine act of reconciliation he says, then he is asked was the job discrimination finding against Sinn Fein not very embarrassing as he had claimed meeting the Queen was reaching out to every Protestant. Martin McGuinness says the Conor Murphy finding is not over yet and he says there is not a sectarian bone in Conor Murphy's body. Then when asked if he will ever see Sinn Fein take its seats at Westminster, he says no never and explains why. He agrees that Sinn Fein is having difficulty getting unionist politicians to discuss agreeing a united Ireland with Sinn Fein and agrees most of their conversations are with civic society unionists, but that won't prevent in being involved in processes to better politics here, and move forward. He says he is motivated by being an Irish republican who was involved in the conflict and now wants to see a united Ireland by democratic means, he comments on the military stalemate here and the effect it had on his decision making and the continued loss of life, things changed here because Sinn Fein made it change he says, than after that commentator Alex Kane and journalist Eamon McDermott comment on items in Martin McGuinness's interview including the handshake, Connor Murphy, Gesture Politics and the reactions in the nationalist and unionist communities and Sinn Fein's hope of gaining electoral support in the south by doing the handshake. Then Gareth Gordon's film clip explores the week's news in 60 seconds. Then the commentators discuss a Sunday post article that the Provisional IRA will apologise for its violent campaign which they say is very unlikely, then they discuss Stormont's failure to deal with this week's floods in Belfast and its effect on voting.
