Sceal Na Gaeilge: (The Story of the Irish Language)
Programme Title:
Part 1
Description:
Presented by Alan Titley, this programme sets out to tell the story of the Irish Language from its origins in the beginning of time to the present day. He uses a mixture of ancient writings and modern cartoons to illustrate the stories from down through time, and the ancient personalities we know about connected to Irish language from across ancient Europe, right up until Gaels landed in Ireland and after, New Grange in Co. Antrim profiled, and he discusses the legends of Irish folklore the origins of the word 'Celtic' what archaeologists have told us about Irelands first inhabitants 9000 years ago and whereabouts in Europe and Asia, Africa they came from. Irish was spoken thousands of years before it was written down. The written epics like the Tain are profiled, using cartoon characters to tell the story, it illustrates the importance of agriculture in Ireland, with bothair meaning road for cows. The Druids in Ireland are also mentioned as is folklores importance, Druids were bastions of knowledge and language in their time. They were also widespread across Europe, in the 5th century Irish is the language Patrick heard as a slave in Ireland. The legend is Patrick introduced written Irish. Alan Titley explores how written Irish developed using the Latin alphabet, the legend of Oisin is told as it tells of the tension between the old Pagan Ireland and the new Christian Ireland in Patrick's time. The monasteries wrote down everything they were the universities of that time, their works are profiled in literature and art. In the 6th century Gaels invaded Scotland with their language and the bible, and the Anglo Saxons invaded England the beginning A. Titley says of the clash between the two languages. Colmcille's mission to Scotland is highlighted and his 40 churches in Ireland, he died in 597AD. The island of saints and scholars title is examined as Irish established monasteries in Europe between 575 and 725 Irish monks established 113 monasteries in France and Switzerland, 26 in Germany, 10 in Austria and 3 in Italian Alps. Some of the works from these institutions are profiled. A Titley then explores the use of grammar in the Irish language and its Latin origins. Also the Irish languages use of capital letters a first at that time, as was spaces between letters and punctuation, plus the ancient legal system known as Brehon's law are over 2500 pages written in Irish. Some of these ancient laws on divorce are mentioned the Vikings however caused turmoil in this Irish Civilization from the end of the 8th century. A Titley examines this era from 795AD and the damage they done and of course Viking words which became part of the Irish language, and their influence of Dublin is profiled and questioned. Then in 1014 at Clontarf a battle between Brian Boru and the Vikings defeated the Vikings, but Boru was killed, the Vikings fled to Scotland where Macbeth was King and he spoke Irish also. But in 1169 Diarmuid Mac Murchadha invited the Normans to Ireland to help regain his Leinster Kingdom but the Normans didn't leave, and changed the course of Irish history, and the Irish language. The programme then examines the course of events that followed the Normans arrival, capturing Wexford then moving to Dublin. Then establishing strongholds across Ireland, the new invaders spoke French, Strongbow married Diarmuid's daughter Aoife. French became the administrative language of Waterford/ Kilkenny for next 300 years. But the Norman invasion hadn't a massive effort on the ordinary rural Irish citizen and the Irish Gaels held onto their culture in these years. This is seen in the book of Leinster which the programme profiles, including Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the programme also explores the role of Gaels in the international stage in the early centuries including poet Muirioch O' Dalaigh born in the 12th century who eventually became poet to the O'Connor clan in Co. Sligo and beheaded a taxman and fled to Scotland. Then he went to the Crusades and to Jerusalem he died in Scotland in 1240 his family produced poets for the next 600 years. In 1366 the statutes of Kilkenny began to try to curtail the use of the Irish Language. A Titley explains its contents if you spoke Irish you would lose your lands. This wouldn't be the last constriction on speaking Irish. See Part2.

Tonight's show looks at the policing of the loyalist flags protest in terms of what has happened to date and how the PSNI will deal with them in future. Then Nolan announces a new Ulster people's forum tactic over protests he says they have announced white line protests will replace blocking roads, in a recorded interview he talks about this new tactic with Jamie Bryson of the UPF and why they made the change, he admits not all protesters are happy with the change but he won't condemn them for doing different things, S. Nolan gives him a cross examination on the UPF's plans and their leadership, and attitudes to politicians. He calls J. Bryson a failed political entity who only got 167 votes he also calls him a poster boy for UPF, Bryson says protests aren't about him, Bryson's calls for DUP's Peter Robinson to resign his seat and collapse the executive is highlighted, he's asked who does he think he is to make such demands, he replies that's his personal view not the UPF views.

McQuillan then comments on the 8 weeks protesters blocked roads illegally and the PSNI did nothing, he accuses the Policing board as being the mechanism to deal with complaints about PSNI inaction. Then SDLP's Dolores Kelly says concerns in nationalism about policing have been raised by different PSNI actions in different areas, she's happier now the PSNI are taking road blocks seriously. Then DUP'S G. Campbell says most protests were lawful and peaceful and he attended them, he defends attending protests despite DUP leader P. Robinson calling for protests to end. G. Campbell says PSNI don't arrest republicans at Easter with masks, he says loyalist law breakers also should be arrested, he and Nolan then debate what actions the PSNI have taken to date, then Alliance's S. Farry also says road blocks are illegal, he says police have difficult balance to take, identifying protesters and follow on charges are now happening he claims, he points finger at politician's who stood with protesters including G. Campbell, S. Farry points out conflicting DUP statements on how safe the union is, then G. Campbell accuses Alliance of backing Nationalists.

Mark Carruthers discusses the implication of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams Dail apology for the 1996 killing of Garda Gerry McCabe by the PIRA during a robbery. The apology came during a Dail debate on the recent killing of Garda Adrian Donohue during a robbery in the South. Firstly a film report shows Gerry Adams comments in the Dail, then in the studio two Executive ministers Sinn Fein's John O'Dowd and DUP's Edwin Poots discuss the statement and what does it mean for dealing with the past. John O'Dowd is asked why this apology came now, he says it's a peace process of events moving forward, we want a dialogue says J. O'Dowd, he says Adams was comparing the human tragedy in both McCabe/ Donohue murders. If he wasn't in the IRA why apologise for IRA? O'Dowd claims he was apologising on behalf of wider republican family as an elected representative. E. Poot's welcomes fact Gerry Adams recognises it's wrong to kill police officers and apologised but he falls short in not apologising for 300 RUC murders, he refers to UVF remorse at their ceasefire. The example of UVF is criticised by both J. O'Dowd and M. Carruthers's, O'Dowd highlights different views in different communities on IRA and RUC and calls for dialogue. O'Dowd is pushed on no apology for RUC deaths. He highlights conflict here being different he denies he's creating a hierarchy of victims and says one combatants group can't be separated from another he maintains he has sympathy for RUC widows, but their pain and grief is the same as republican families who lost loved ones. E. Poot's admits the issue is complicated but sorry is a simple word, he says that's not a big ask and says Sinn Fein lack courage to say sorry. Poots highlights D. Cameron's apology for Bloody Sunday and the series of inquiries into collusion allegations, O'Dowd's says PIRA has apologised for violence where civilians lost lives. He comments on Sheena Campbell's murder and Craigavon council unionists refusal to pass sympathy vote, and highlighted DUP Cllrs recently refusing to stand in sympathy at death of father of a Sinn Fein Cllr. E. Poot's asks was it wrong for the LVF to murder PSNI Constable O'Reilly or Con Arbuckle by loyalists J. O'Dowd is asked about executive discomfort he feels sitting with A. Foster whose RUC father the PIRA tried to kill. He respects Arlene's position and says the aim is to prevent it ever happening again, he denies his party has taken a partitionist position on apologies. Poots repeats he wants Sinn Fein apology. Next a film report looks at plans to make Derry's Shackleton army barracks the HQ for the Department of Agriculture with Sinn Fein's agriculture minister Michelle O'Neill's views. Then Ballykelly community worker Tina McCloskey's views on new jobs, problems with Shackleton site are explored, SDLP's John Dallat comments, then M. O'Neill on use of ministerial directive process, then NIPSA's Noel Griffin questions why an equality impact assessment wasn't undertaken, then Ulster farmers union Clarke Black comments. Next M.

Description:
Programme is introduced by Noel Thompson, his opening remarks refer to the unionist flag protests, and general unrest within the PUL community, but he says a Spotlight poll shows the union is safe as many Catholics would vote to stay in the UK if a border poll was called now as Sinn Fein want. He then introduces a film report from Stephen Dempster looking back to the beginning of the flag protests in December 2012, with film clips of two months of protests and reaction of Larry Mawhinney a restaurant owner on effect on his business. Then Alliance MP Naomi Long describes the abuse directed at her office staff and Cllrs. N. Long has got three death threats. Dempster then profiles the vote on designated days which Alliance supported as a compromise between Sinn Fein/SDLP position of no flags and DUP/UUP position of union flag 365 days a year on city hall, unionist Cllrs mounted leaflet campaign Alliance blames that for raising tensions. DUP's N. Dodds rejects that claim in his views, journalist Liam Clarke comments, did unionist leaflet focus on East Belfast because in 2010 N. long Alliance took that Westminster seat of P. Robinson? N. Long defends this viewpoint but N. Dodds rejects that. Back in the studio Noel Thompson and Mark Davenport show the results of the Spotlight poll to various questions, No1 How many days should the union flag fly at city hall, answers show 18 designated days got 44% 365 days got 35%, never got 10%, other 6%, when question was asked to a solely unionist grouping. The answers were 365 days 73% 18 days 23% never 0%. Then when the nationalist panel was asked the figures were 365 days 5% 18 days 64% never 20%. The interviewees in total were asked when protests began to what extent did you agree or disagree with the, agree was 51% disagree 37% neither 10%, then answers from solely unionist respondents was agree 83% disagree 11% neither 5%. The next question was do you think the protests should now stop or continue, from a unionist audience the figures were 54% stop, 45% continue, the responses for the general population were stop 77% and continue 21% Noel Thompson then invites texts on the figure be sent in from the viewing audience, he then asks does the recent census figures showing a narrowing gap between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland mean a United Ireland could be coming into view, this is followed by another S. Dempster film report examining the possibility of this as Sinn Fein call for a border poll Gerry Adams comments, Good Friday Agreement referendum rules explained. Northern Ireland Secretary T. Villiers rejects a poll, then Gerry Adams views again on Sinn Fein position. Newsletter's Sam McBride then comments on the idea, a Protestant majority in Northern Ireland means the union is safe, and comments on the position of 1 in 5 people here who say they are Northern Irish are their votes up for grabs. Gerry Adams comments on the challenge here then Sam McBride on DUP's response to border poll idea, and if a poll would further destabilize unionism. P. Robinson's views at party conference shown, then pro union Catholic, ex RUC man R. Doherty comments yet he has never voted for unionist party. He rejects Gerry Adams persuasion totally. Back in the studio Noel Thompson and Mark Davenport discuss their poll question if there was a referendum on United Ireland tomorrow how would you vote. Northern Ireland to remain in UK 65%, United Ireland 17%, Not vote 12% Don't know 5% when reduced to committed voters 79% remain in UK, 21% for United Ireland analysis of figures given. When the question was put to Catholics remain in the UK was 38%, United Ireland 35%, not vote 18%, don't know 9% traditionally assumptions turn on their head here, the question was then out to people who called themselves Northern Irish, the figures were remain in the UK 72%, United Ireland 7%, not vote 16% don't know 6% more analysis given. Then N. Thompson joins a panel of politicians to get their responses to the poll figures, they are G. Kelly Sinn Fein, A. Attwood SDLP, D. Kennedy UUP, A. Foster DUP, S. Farry Alliance, G. Kelly rejects polls and says look at last election figures, he won't believe 23% of Sinn Fein voters would stay in the UK, then DUP's A. Foster welcomes poll results as very clear, the challenge for the DUP is to reach out to Catholics, UUP's D. Kennedy comments on attacking Alliance over flag vote, he denies protests are counterproductive in getting Catholics to vote unionist he says UUP is reaching out to Catholics but figures reject that's, then SDLP's A. Attwood refers to previous 'pipe dreams' that are now a reality, he calls poll a snapshot, but debate will change minds he claims but it's a big task. He outlines his plans for a debate strategy, D. Kennedy challenges his approach Alliances S. Farry says the poll message of a border poll isn't relevant at this time. He outlines why he feels this, he and D. Kennedy clash over flag protests and damage to shared future idea. A. Foster attacks city hall vote on flags as non-consensual politics, Sinn Fein's G.

Part 1: Taking Root
Description:
In this series of programmes William Crawley tells the story of Ulster's Presbyterians, he looks at the Scottish ministers who first established the Presbyterian Church on Irish soil with profiles of early Presbyterian leaders John Knox and John Calvin and their fall out with the established churches. He also profiles the role of early Northern Ireland Presbyterians like Robert Blair, with comments of academics Prof. Lawrence Kirkpatrick and union theological college and Prof. Jane O'Hlymer Trinity College Dublin, Dr. Robert Armstrong TCD. W. Crawley also explores how the Presbyterian Church of today governs itself as a democratic organisation with no bishops. The Church was born out of a religious revolution that's consumed Europe, W. Crawley looks back at those times in the 16th century and the reformation, profiling Calvin's revolutionary ideas of the church and what he gave to Presbyterianism, beginning in his church in Geneva which John Knox attended, then returned to Scotland to spread the new ideas. By 1560 Scots declared the mass illegal, Scotland was now Protestant, in 1583 James VI became Scots first protestant King, but the Church of Scotland was split between Episcopalians and Presbyterians, he didn't trust Presbyterians and appointed a hierarchy of bishops of his choice to run the church. The rebellious Presbyterians looked to Ulster as a land of refuge, as Ulster was short of ministers and it was considered although not Anglican a Presbyterian minister in Ireland, 1613-1636, then profile of Robert Blair unofficial leader of early Ulster Presbyterians begins in church archives. He called Ireland an uncouth and dangerous country. W. McCawley examines the conflict between Blair and Anglican bishops and the compromise which as shattered at Antrim revival meeting known as the Six Mile water revival, where Rev James Glendening put the fear of God into those who heard him, with fire and brimstone preaching. Blair gathered new faithful into Presbyterian Church transforming plantation in Ulster, the bishops demanded it all and Blair was deposed in 1632, in England Charles I was the new King Blair appealed for Clemency, Blair was to get a retrial but in 1634 Blair and other excommunicated, they decided to build a ship called Eagles Wing to take them to America, but the storms forced the ship back to Carrick, were warrants for arrest of Livingstone and Blair where issued. They went back to Scotland to defend the Scottish Kirk against the introduction in 1637 of a Church of England prayer book, to replace John Knox book, which Blair/Livingstone considered popish. W. McCrawley outlines the degree of opposition to the new prayer book in Scotland a riot turned into a revolt he says, the Scottish national covenant details outlined, it would limit Kings Power, it was signed by 60,000 people in 1638. In Ireland Lord Wentworth sent troops from Dublin to quell ulster Presbyterians by making them all sign an oath of rejection of covenant, but Ulster Presbyterians refused to sign this Black Oath and many fled to Scotland, as war spread in Scotland, the native Irish rose in revolt in 1641 and turned on the Protestant settlers and massacred many, the event is still deep in the protestant psyche today. Lawrence Kirkpatrick comments on the 12,000 protestant deaths, In April 1642 general Monroe and 10,000 Scottish army arrive in Carrickfergus, this establishes first Presbyterians back in Ulster and a new moderator John Baird elected for Irish Presbyterian Church, now not controlled by Anglican bishops. Back in England the tension between King Charles I and the puritan parliament erupted into 1 year civil war in 3 kingdoms, which kills 200,000. In Scotland by 1643 Scottish Presbyterians were victorious over King Charles. The Church of Scotland was now Presbyterian. They extended their religious reform campaign to England and Ireland, the puritan English parliament forces backed them, in 1644 the covenant and Robert Blair came to Ulster16,000 signed it, a defining moment for Ulster Presbyterians. But the English puritans didn't make the legislation to make English/Scottish state religion Presbyterian, the execution of King Charles I in 1649, he treated Presbyterians harshly. In 1653 he banished Ulster Scots and papists 'to hell or Connaught' replacing them in Ulster with soldiers. L. Kirkpatrick explains, why Cromwell didn't carry the scheme out in relation to ulster Presbyterians. In 1660 Charles II restored to the throne. Many Presbyterians welcomed that, as he had signed the covenant, but he quickly restored the control of Anglican bishops with new ordination. W. Crawley profiles this move, new Bishop Taylor ejected 34 Presbyterians from Church of Ireland parishes. Ulster Presbyterians gathered in secret services. Profile of Presley opposition to new Church of England ministers illustrated as Presbyterian began building meeting houses, Ireland now had three religious' strains. Anglican Presbyterian and Catholic, however King Charles wanted protestant united against Catholic threat. In 1673 he offered financial aid to every Presbyterian Church in Ireland, an attempt to buy their loyalty says W. Crawley. But in Scotland a war broke out between Charles II and the covenanters, W. Crawley profiles the violence, and visits site of Greyfriers prison, 18,000 converters were killed. Charles II died on 1685 his Catholic brother James became King. In 1688 the birth of his son cause panic amongst English Protestants. Calvinist William of Orange of Holland is offered English crown, the war to decide who would be king is fought in Ireland. In June 1690 Presbyterian's welcomed William to Carrick, the first William victory happened in Derry before William arrived in Ireland William Crawley profiles siege of Derry for 105 days, visiting fist Derry Presbyterian church, but after his victory William let Irish parliament and Anglican bishops control Ireland and the anti-Catholic penal laws also affected Presbyterian's from 1690-1714. William Crawley gives the details of penal laws and their effects in this period, also of spread of poverty. Profile of R. W. McGregor who takes his congregation to America for freedom to worship. This emigration trickle would become a flood in coming years.

Part 3: Union and Division
Description:
William Crawley explores the creation of the modern day Presbyterian Church in Ireland born out of a bitter struggle between radicals and conservatives which begin after the failed 1798 rebellion. The 1801 Act of union organised by Robert Stewart, Lord Castlereagh, with the oath of allegiance were measures aimed at crushing radicalism. Prof L. Kirkpatrick says after 1798 Presbyterianism could never be the same again, W. Crawley highlights the actions taken by Lord Castlereagh against his former Presbyterian friends like James Porter, the minister from Greyabbey, hanged outside his own Church.

Mapping Ulster
Programme Title:
n.a.
Description:
Historian Gerry Brotton uses a unique collection of maps to explore Northern Ireland's origins revealing the role of the maps and economies in establishing the plantation of Ulster through turbulent times in Ireland. Brotton is professor of Renaissance studies, he refers to maps as much more than enabling one to find your way around. He calls them the map of history and 400 years ago was a defining moment in the history of maps and Spanish, Portuguese and the English entered a period of exploration and discovery laying claim to territories in Americas and Asia, maps were part of the technological kit of explorers back then. Ulster was intensify mapped in the 16th century each maps tells its own story of war and conquest, and the growth of a network of towns. Britton begins with Elizabeth I's plan to conquer Ireland from its Gaelic Chieftains as she feared Spain would use Ireland to invade England at this point Ulster wasn't mapped. What did exist was on a small scale, Ortelus map of Ireland from 1592 is shown. Dr Annaleigh Margey, Dundalk Institute of Technology explains the difficulties facing the English map makers faced when sent to Ireland with her army by Elizabeth. In 1598 Francis Jobson ordered to make a survey of Ulster, his Gaelic Families who ruled Ulster, the map identifies the clans and where they live. Hugh O'Neill was Earl of Tyrone, he was of special interest to Elizabeth, and Brotton visits his Tullaghoge Fort in Co. Tyrone and feels the History of the place. The 9 years' war resulted from Jobson's map as Elizabeth tried to smash Hugh O'Neill's control, at Armagh's battle of Yellowford. The English were defeated, Elizabeth then sent Lord Mountjoy, Charles Blunt to Ireland in 1600. He brought with him map maker called Richard Bartlett. Bartlett's maps are now held in the National Library of Dublin, they open a window into the past Brotton gives his reaction as he views the maps, he highlights the military landscape, castles and forts etc. the maps also tell the story of Mountjoy's campaign including his control of the gateway to Ulster Brotton visits South Armagh QUB James O'Neill explains the battle for this area in September 1600 with eventually Mountjoy seizing the pass. The English built a castle there in 1601, Bartlett's map examined, then the English march on Dungannon. Dr A. Margey uses Bartlett's maps to describe the battle in Dungannon, the ending of Gaelic Ulster. In 1602 Mountjoy destroyed Tullaghoge, O'Neill surrendered. 4 years later he and the other Ulster Chieftains left Ireland for good in the flight of the Earls. The English claimed all their lands. Bartlett's maps are the 17th Century equivalent of a war report to the English courts. His 1602 map titled Armagh and fort of the Mullin is shown, Bartlett was sent to make a map of Donegal where he was killed by the Irish. Elizabeth's successor James I was crowned in 1603. Brotton then details James' early effort to colonise Ulster with Scots and English. A previous 1571 English attempt on the Ards peninsula by Thomas Smith included a published map and booklet. Brotton views it by 1573 the colony failed in violence. In 1603 James Hamilton and Hugh Montgomery are profiled they began new Ards peninsula colonisation. Dr Alison Cathcart of University of Strathclyde explains why Scottish settlers favoured going to Ireland. In 1606 she profiles the new immigrants including R. Hamilton and Montgomery who soon fell out, Hamilton had map maker Richard Ravern draw up maps of where these early settlers lived in Co. Down, Brotton views the maps of Hamilton estate, including Bangor, including the settler's names, Hamilton's castle was at Killyleagh, Brotton visits his dependents, Gawn Rowan Hamilton is interviewed about R. Hamilton 'a hard man to cross'. He also gives details on the commissioning of Raven maps of Killyleigh and the Scots names and settlers. James I then launched his plantation of Ulster plans following the 1607 flight of the Earls at the London National Archives. Brotton looks at the 1609 maps of J. Bodley of west of Ulster used as preparation for settlement with townlands labelled. Rose Mitchell from National Archives comments on the maps. The woodlands are highlighted as timber was worth its weight in gold at that time. Patrick Cregg of the Northern Ireland woodland trust comments on the old woodlands. Next map shown from 1610by John Norden is titles Six Enchanted Counties of Ulster by 1613, 9,000 English/Scottish settlers had settled on James I new estates. Tens of thousands more would join them in coming years. James called on London Guilds involved in Virginia USA to take on estates on North Ulster, Oxford University Dr Ian Archer comments on why James I wanted them involved. A new county was created Londonderry. The maps by Thomas Raven of Londonderry show the division of the lands, the political geography the big fortified town was Derry. Londonderry Ulster University Dr Eamon O'Ciardha explains Londonderry's role in plantation citadel and the London companies, and the riches they wanted, profile of Bellaghy then and now, using Ravens map including Bellaghy Bawn. Dr. Bill MacAfee comments on the native Irish role and ravens notes comments on settler/ native Irish relationships. By 1630 only 2,000 settlers came to North Ulster, Ravens book shows things going wrong, Sir Thomas Phillips government of Coleraine leads campaign against London companies he uses Ravens map and Charles put London trial, it loses estates the city gets its revenge in 1640 Brotten's closing remarks on importance of maps.

Description:
In tonight's programme S. Nolan asks the question, 13 years after the closure of the Maze/Long Kesh prison will the maze become a shrine to Bobby Sands and the republican Hunger Strikers? Nolan begins by asking the UUP leader Mike Nesbitt to give the reasons why he's against the new centre, he replies with 3 questions. 1) Should we have a peace centre 2) if yes what's its purpose and functions, 3) where should it be the chosen site he says is the most divisive plot of land in the whole of Northern Ireland, He says he will never support the centre at the Maze, he wants consultation with 'innocent victims' he says all shades of ex-prisoners have been consulted but not victims. He claims schoolchildren will be forced to visit the Maze centre. DUP's J. Donaldson says victims groups have been consulted M. Nesbitt shows a list from OFMDFM that he says back up his view. J. Donaldson insists he has met victims groups across Northern Ireland. Both men argue over what the UUP agreed in past years on the site or the planning application. M. Nesbitt then outlines why he thinks the centre will become a shrine to prisoners. J. Donaldson is adamant the DUP will not permit it to become a shrine as they have a veto. S. Nolan asks Donaldson to outline what the focus of the new centre will be, will he ban people from entering or eulogising Hunger Strikers then Sinn Fein's Raymond McCartney a former Hunger Striker from Derry is introduced. A film clip of Raymond on Hunger Strike is shown, he says the site is of historical significance, it should be preserved and dialogue should be done in a sensitive way and that he says is what has got us to where it is today. He says the site should be open to the public where numerous stories could be told, he gives details when asked about his story, but we shouldn't be afraid of history or competing perspectives he adds it wouldn't be proper to ban aspects of history. He then comments on things S. Nolan says J. Donaldson says won't be allowed like tour guides pointing out where Bobby Sands died, M. Nesbitt says when national sports stadiums plan fell, Maze centre was part of that package, it all fell then. Then members of the audience give their views on the maze centre idea, then DUP's J. Donaldson sets out what Bobby Sands is to him, an IRA man ' who starved himself to death under duress from IRA leaders' he defends his comments on not allowing tours of where prisoners died. R. McCartney accuses him of playing to the gallery, dialogue will overcome the obstacles, Donaldson repeats his position he says they haven't agreed any narrative yet for the hospital site. In the audience Serena Hamilton whose UDR father was killed by PIRA in Co. Tyrone explains why she's against the peace centre, it will be a shrine, then Lawrence McKeown a former Hunger Striker says the Hunger Strike will be an inclusive area, he outlines who that will happen, as he's sitting beside Serena, Nolan asks him to convince her about the merits of the centre. He rejects that idea as a sound bite, Nolan pushes his idea, McKeown says no, Serena says her dad was an innocent man, she rejects murder as wrong, L. McKeown says he sees it differently it was a conflict, she calls it a terrorist campaign. L. McKeown says it's about learning from the history of that site. Then audience member's comments on the phone Jude Whyte says project should go ahead, at basic level for jobs, he recalls his mother's murder by the UVF and his later friendship with D. Ervine. Nesbitt asked why UUP supported early release of prisoners and not prisoner's stories being told, he calls for centre to be at Crumlin road jail with an agreed narrative. He says Irish-Americans will come with flowers to Bobby Sands death bed.

Mark Carruthers interviews the DUP's P. Robinson about the upcoming G8 summit in Enniskillen and hears why he thinks it is an opportunity for NI to shine on the global stage, he begins by saying this event couldn't have happened here 10//30 years ago. It's a signal NI has changed for the better, the PM D. Cameron wouldn't have selected NI to host the G8 if he hadn't a high degree of confidence in the place says Robinson, he also adds it's a recognition of NI's place within the UK. He's asked is M. McGuinness comfortable with that, he replies we are all more comfortable now about our individual identities. Robinson says he and McGuinness will be welcoming visitors to G8 together, they will be also holding a reception for all world leaders, benefits for NI will be reputational enhancement and removing NI's old image of the past. He replies to the criticism of some in Enniskillen about the clean-up, the façade presenting the town as being prosperous, he lists other things done like improving the towns internet connections. Next question relates to the joint ministers meeting with D. Cameron in London tomorrow (14/06/13 D09810) Robinson asks what level of investment do they except to get from the British Government again he says everything can't be put down to pounds and pence. It refers to that as begging bowl economics he sees two main platforms for NI. The economic one and the shared future one, tomorrow is about assisting those aims. Carruthers questions him on the value of the economic package again saying its more than money it's an 'enabling' package, but it will be of corporation tax. 64100 unemployed in NI 7.8% Carruthers asks Robinson will they benefit and if the money is the carrot, the stick is that he and McGuinness must do more on building a shared future here. Robinson says its two carrots, not carrot and stick the shared future document is the policy of the executive, nobody needs a stick to get him to move in that direction, he denies they set aside flags, parades and the past but set up a committee to deal with those problems. P. Robinson gives his expectations for this marching season, but NI faces some difficult challenges. With G8 coming here on Monday/Tuesday a film report from Martina Purdy examines the tradition of protest in NI from 1960s, most over our own grievances but sometimes international issues like the Iraq war lead to protests here, so what can we expect from the G8. Patrick Corrigan of Amnesty International will protest about in justices, but fences now surround the Lough Erne hotel resort, Journalist Eamonn McCann is concerned about the restrictions on free assembly, Sinn Fein's G. Kelly says they have worked to ensure the police will be held to account for mistakes as our police ombudsman can investigate incidents at the G8 protests. In Stormont DUP's Lord Morrow called the protesters anarchists and malcontents. Eamonn McCann says the British government and Stormont executive want to portrait NI as peaceful now, Patrick Corrigan says peoples freedom of speech and protest must be protected, protest film maker Velcrow Ripper comments on the new energies of young protesters, across the world but students in Enniskillen College expressed no desire to protest. Then from England Clare Short for Labour International Development Minister gives her views on the level of protest she expects here, with Fermanagh being so remote, she also expects G8 is here to celebrate NI's peace she gives her view on the security in Fermanagh and she gives her views on taxation hunger, mining issues to be discussed at G8. She feels power is moving from G8 to G20. Then commentators Alex Kane and Paul McFadden give their views on P. Robinson's interview on G8 and shared future, their stories of the week and the tweets of the week.

Then Tara talks to NI secretary Theresa Villiers about what she feels the G8 conference will do for NI she says it's a chance to show the progress made in NI since the Good Friday Agreement and to show the world NI is open for business and investment.

She feels the US doesn't need a special envoy now, then back to Noel Thompson as President Obama, his wife and two daughters leave the plane, they are met by local dignitaries at the foot of the steps, including DUP's A. Foster and Sinn Fein's M. O'Neill and Brian Kingston, Belfast's High Sheriff (his wife), they talk for a few moments then head to the helicopter (Marine One).

Then back at the Waterfront Noel Thompson shows events beginning inside as school girl Hanna Nelson begins proceedings she's 16 years old and from Methodist College, she talks about building an enduring peace in NI despite our diverse cultures she says we have an obligation to value each other as individuals, she doesn't want to live in the past, she wants to live for the future. We must accept our differences if we are to move forward barriers must be taken down.

She emphases the importance of young people, the future leaders, she recalls her childhood and Barack's they never thought they'd succeed, their values were honesty and commitment to education, that's how they became who they are today, by stepping outside our comfort zones, exploring new ideas and treat people as you want to be treated, young people creating a bright future for us all and making a mark on this world. Then with a sense of humour she introduces her husband B. Obama he begins his speech with 'Hello Belfast' and thanks for the warm welcome, he praises Hannah's speech and P. Robinson and M. McGuinness and T. Villiers and the lord Mayor M. O'Muilleoir. He recalls his visit to the republic two years ago and his Irish roots, he jokes about his O'Bama name in Chicago it was a magical visit and he's glad to be back in N. Ireland, he comments on the US Irish links over history, independence etc. In 1796 George Washington was President, US opened its first consulate in Ireland many American qualities were imported from Ireland. He lists these as he seen them, our pasts are linked and our futures are linked he says. We can build together in a world with fewer walls, instant communication, young people fill him with hope, NI young people are inheritors of a just and hard earned peace where day to day life is changing across the north. He thanks Chief Constable Matt Baggott for keeping everyone safe this week and mentions world police and fire games later this year, he says Belfast is a different city now, abandoned factories are rebuilt, and visitors come from all over, he lists all the benefits of peace in the city now, things that seem ordinary now weren't in your parents' and grandparents' days because of their efforts and courage better days have come. Their dreams for you became a reality. 15 years now since Good Friday Agreement when people replaces fists with stretched hands, over the years other breakthroughs and agreements have followed because fewer conflicts in the world seemed more intractable than here in NI. When peace was achieved here it gave the entire world hope, but much work still needs to be done there are walls that still stand, peace is a long journey he quotes WB Yeats, there's more to lose now than there ever was. Peace here is good for entire Island and UK, other conflicts in the world study what we have done in NI, hope is contagious, Obama admires NI Executive for making power sharing work, and he mentions segregated housing and schools and lack of jobs as issues to be tackled, those encourage division and discourage co-operation, he talks about similar problems in the USA, the civil war and the legacy of slavery which lasted 100 years or more. His own parents' marriage was illegal in certain states and people who looked like him couldn't vote, but hearts and minds changed, driven by committed citizens, especially young people, politicians sometimes follow rather than lead. US has become more tolerant of diversity he says. Obama calls on NI young people to push for change of attitudes he lists things people have a choice to do, to build trust again he recalls President Clinton's words after Omagh when he called it a vicious opening shot on the peace. When Peace is attacked we must respond by going forward not backwards. America will back political and economic progress here, he praises Sylvia Gordon of Groundwork NI which aims to bring about change from the bottom up and her work, he himself started as a community organiser. Obama talks about Alexandra Park in North Belfast divided by a wall, they got a gate to open the wall, it's a small bit of progress, there more work to do on walls, we need young people who remove barriers and bring communities come together. Peace is harder than war, Obama explains this remark ... (Recording ends early before speech finishes).
