In a pub Provis and the journalist discuss what information they currently have, he had heard the helicopter's pilot had some connection to the master of Falkland castle in Scotland, he describes events in the helicopter before he got to Daisy Hill hospital. The journalist goes to the Whitehall library of military history to talk to troubles expert Professor Richard Greerson who explains the secrecy around British army war diaries and the 30 year rule preventing access to them, getting official records will be virtually impossible.

He spent 6 months in an army hospital where he met his wife Jeanie who was a nurse, both talk about being stuck in the moment of the explosion and its effects.

One month after LA meeting Cary arrives in Britain, Patrick and his wife bring a silver dragon, his regimental emblem for Alex as a memento and other items. Both men meet in a pub in Greenwich in South London.

Description:
This programme examines the Orange Order's efforts in rural Ulster through companies to fund keeping protestant owned land in protestant hands. Declan Lawn's documentary begins with introductory comments of orange order's D Nelson about protecting isolated communities in some areas then he identifies leading orange man David Mahon as the boss of the orange land's funds companies. After opening titles he interviews an anonymous person called 'Danny' who describes his attempt to buy a farm near Dungannon owned by a Protestant and Danny was a Catholic, although a cash customer the family sold the farm to Protestants after taking it off the market for a month. Then SDLP MLA John Dallat says stories like that are common in rural Ulster, he comments on rural/Belfast differences, Dallat in 2006 amended fair employment act to counter this trend but it failed as ways were found around it. D Lawn details what estate agents told him about 'colour coding' practice in rural NI. Writer and historian D McDonald comments on the Clogher fund set up in the 1920s to buy land for Protestants fleeing the Free State by the orange order. It helped 2000 Protestant families settle in Fermanagh, a fund successor was the Archdale fund again in Fermanagh, University of Liverpool's Jon Tonge comments on orange order land funds and how they are used, orange order's Drew Nelson calls it a relief fund for distressed Protestants, he explains his views then D Lawn shows documents of modern day Ulster land and property company which has the same aims between 1995-2004 around Drumcree crisis. Professor Eric Kaufman researched the fund and explains what he discovered. 2002 Robert Salters letter says £1m of property has already been bought, D Nelson admits the company still exists but won't give financial details, he gives general details of the fund aims and says they lend to lodges, he claims 2002 documents are out of date, he claims in border areas its republican funds which are affected property markets and it's illegal money, he denies it's a hidden battle for the land and admits there are other orange funds doing the same type of work to help protestant communities in distress. Next D Lawn profiles Orangeman David Mahon from Kesh, a property entrepreneur he admits some involvement with the ulster land and property company, he denies buying farms, just land around orange halls and says the order has 200 similar funds, he says he's just an advisor but the Ulster land and property company holds investments in two companies, Mistyburn Consultants limited and Union Arch properties in which D Mahon is a director, D Lawn gives details of both companies and make-up of their shareholders and connection to orange lodges. D Nelson is a director of Union Arch but he denies it's an orange company but its roots are in the orange network he says. Mistyburn exists in Belfast, it buys property along contentious parade routes, this continued long after Drumcree. D Lawn visits Springfield Road Route, house bought to prevent Catholic's owning them, D Mahon a director of Mistyburn comments on buying 12-15 houses on parade routes. D Mahon says Mistyburn isn't orange company but Drew Nelson says it has connections, he defends purchasing property as a useful political tool but D Mahon denies political motives. D Mahon controls many companies across NI, he himself can't put a number on it but says it's approximately 150 and growing. D Lawn then profiles D Mahon's main company called D2 in Kesh which was owned by the orange order who sold it to him. D Mahon comments it's not the business of the order, then D Nelson comments on D2, then D Mahon says his companies have never had a political or religious agenda, an orange order insider contradicts that view and fears loss of money in property crash. D Mahon denies concerns as does D Nelson who goes on to explain why order sold D2, then D Lawn Summarises.

Programme Title:
Part 1: Red Hand
Description:
William Crawley explores some of the social, cultural and political influences on identity in Ulster, Ulster is more than a place he says, and it's also an idea with many meanings, shaped by different languages, faiths and cultures. He asks who we are. Are we Irish, British, Norther Irish, Ulster Scots? We all claim this place. Over hundreds of years 3 cultures have intertwined here, Irish, English and Scottish, he will attempt to unpick the threads of identity who shaped who we are. Tonight's programme begins with explanation of were the Ulster symbol of the red hand comes from as two chiefs raced for the land. One of the chiefs in the story was an O'Neill, this blood sacrifice is symbolised by the red hand in the family crest, and the red hand is now part of all our traditions. In 1953 it was centre of the new Ulster flag (NI Flag) but it was placed under the crown, images of iconic image from across NI are shown then academics comment on the symbol. Next Wm Crawley talks about the Galloway/Scots who came to Ireland in the early 17th part of the ebb and flow of peoples between these two places since ancient times, a constant factor in our history. Crawley then profiles those called the border reavers, Armstrong's and Elliott's, they had two identities Scots and English whichever suited them at a time. Crawley outlines how Scots and English Kings used them as mercenaries, he visits a graveyard where the Scots King James executed 50 Elliott/Armstrongs, they were caught between two states, in 1603 James VI united Scotland and England the reavers were an embarrassment, he wiped them out or used them in the plantation of Ulster's dissenting ministers also moved from Scotland to Ulster in the 17th. Presbyterianism was added to flavour of Ulster life, QUB Dr Andrew Holmes comments on pressures that created their ulster identity, as Ulster Scots a frontier people by 18th they found a dissenting voice using poetry. Some featured and read, like James Orr a united Irishman, the failed rebellion led to an 1801 political union with Britain, James Orr was exiled to America, he returned. Dr Holmes comments on the rhyming weavers, UU Dr Frank Ferguson explains their role and that of Samuel Thompson, their letters at fraternity mattered to these men, they are compared to Scotland's Robbie Burns, Thompson's words on his Ulster Scots identity read by William Crawley then he investigates author John Gamble's views on this new identity formed from two nations, he called it the northern character with aspects of the Irish and Scottish intermingled. An English civil servant's report on rural Presbyterian Ulster communities published some years later portrayed them differently. Crawley explains 1830 document and what they revealed then Dr Andrew Holmes talks about James Reid's 1834 publication on the Presbyterian Church in Ulster. It's key text in Presbyterian and unionist writing, it reckons they are a state within a state. Wm Crawley then looks at the old Presbyterian town of Belfast, Aodan Mac Poillin from the Ulster trust describes the cultural make-up of Belfast then and Scottish influence. In 1814 the academic institution opened as a university, Dr Jon Wright QUB comments on its significance, in 1821 Belfast's Natural history and philosophical society founded, they built a museum a growing thirst for knowledge existed. Science was key but evangelism also grows, faith in the bible in ulster became significant force. Professor Ian McBride of King's college London comments, on evangelism bound up with Belfast's economic success, Wm Crawley profiles the Rev Henry Cooke's opposition to Catholic emancipation in 1829 and the role of Daniel O'Connell who Catholic's called the Liberator in calling for repeal of the Act of union which Presbyterian's opposed. Professor Thomas Bartlett University of Aberdeen comments on protestant fears. James Emerson Tennant (1804-1869) MP's life profiled, he opposed D O'Connell in commons on repeal issue, he spoke of the glory of being British while remaining Irish. Dr A Holme's comments on the multiple identities of Ulster people, from 1840s and the growth of the harbour. Belfast grew and industrial success attacked migration from rural Ulster, professor Alvin Jackson University of Edinburgh explains new identities in the city and the growing catholic population, in 1849 Queen Victoria wrote Belfast was an Irish town as she was greeted in Irish. DR Gillian McIntosh comments on Belfast Irish without, Scots within, identity and the business culture driven to succeed. In 1888 Belfast becomes a city. Robinson and Cleavers store opens, its architect Robert Young wanted Belfast to rival Glasgow, other of his buildings profiled by Crawley including the Ulster Hall, a huge civic moment but Ulster Hall had political use. Randolph Churchill in 1886 attacked Home rule in the hall as he played the orange card, he used the slogan Ulster will fight, Ulster will be right. Home Rule changed unionism, it used to have room for many identities now it had geographical identity, a new Northern Identity, academics comment, they wanted their own Ulster ethic to answer Irish ethic, when Gaelic culture was growing northern unionist writers responded a new literature emerged hailing the Ulster Scots. Crawley profiles work of James Woodburn's works who said northerner's superior to southerners because of moral superiority of his religion. In 1912 he third home rule bill passed in the commons, Ireland would have a parliament in Dublin. Crawley profiles reaction in the North, James Craig's Ulster Solemn League & Covenant profiled. QUB professor Keith Jeffrey comments on that events significance then and now and then the UVF formed in January 1913 with German arms, film clips shown. Irish volunteers formed later in Dublin.

Silence of the Supergrass
Description:
In this programme Vincent Kearney investigates why senior UVF Supergrass/informer Gary Heggarty from North Belfast's Shore Road area has not begun testifying against any of his former colleagues or special branch handlers since he agreed to become a Supergrass 5 years ago. Begins with film clip of UVF organised riots 5 years ago when G Heggarty turned Supergrass and admitted involvement in 500 crimes, former Ombudsman Nuala O'Loan says he's as bad as you get, he's given 1000 interviews to police, victim's families believe he's not even been in court yet because police fear what he'll say about his special branch handlers and how they protected him. After opening title a news clip is shown from 21 years ago of G Heggarty's first murder of Catholic grandfather Sean McParland (55) who was minding his 4 grandchildren. Sinead Monaghan tells the story of what happened and the effect of the murder on the children, special branch knew Heggarty was the killer but he was an informer on their payroll and they kept quiet. Solicitor Niall Murphy comments on Special Branch's role. At Wave house in north Belfast Nuala O'Loan and human rights barrister Richard Harvey address Heggarty's victim's representatives, both were appointed independent monitors of the case after the families said they didn't trust the police, the pace of the investigation is causing concern, he hasn't even been charged yet with the crimes he's admitted, the families say the police know his evidence will damage the police as well as the UVF. Two years ago Nuala O'Loan published report on Mount Vernon UVF, it linked UVF police informers to 16 murders and RUC SB protected the killers. Heggarty became UVF Battalion OC. Another murder was May 1997 of Shankill man John Harbinson, news clip shown, solicitor P Murray gives details but UVF realised Heggarty was an informer after HET report and Heggarty was ousted. In August 2009 he agreed to become an assisted informer. William Smith of the PUP called his arrest anti-peace process, UVF organised riots, film clip shown but UVF planned in 2000 to buy more guns and they had a list of republican suspects. September 2009 MET police agreed to debrief Heggarty but two months later the PSNI stepped in and took over from HET. The PSNI once employed Heggarty as an agent. Solicitor P Murray comments. Since 2011 Detective Chief Inspector Richard Campbell has run the investigation, he gives interview and denies they are stalling the process, then Nuala O'Loan's opinion, news report shown of murder of Eamon Fox and Gary Convey in 1994 in North Belfast, Heggarty charged with murders, Kieran Fox his son recalls the effect on the families, a survivor witness A recalls the shooting and the effect on him, when arrested Heggarty and Haddock Special Branch allowed Haddock to shave off his beard which an eye witness mentioned. Kieran Fox couldn't believe it, P Murray says Special Branch handlers should also be in the dock. In October 2014 police ombudsman questioned two Special Branch men about Heggarty's claim they knew what he was doing. Michael Maguire explains why they weren't arrested but he says PSNI won't be telling him what to do. QC Pamela Archison gives her view on the slowness of the case getting to court, then N Murphy rejects her views. Then profile of Drew Harris' role in declaring Heggarty a creditable witness before he avoids answering question on this. PSNI decline to comment but PSNI has now cut 4 people off the case, Nuala O'Loan says that means more delays, R Campbell denies that. Vincent Kearney sums up the latest court moves in this long process, no end result is near.

Programme Title:
n.a.
Description:
Mark Carruthers introduces the live Sinn Fein ard fheis coverage from Derry as Sinn Fein delegates await the speech from President Gerry Adams. Firstly Queens University's Professor Rick Wilford gives his expectation of what Adams' speech will say. He thinks that it will spur the party on to face the 3 upcoming elections in the UK, Stormont & the Dail, where they want power on abortion of fatal foetal pregnancies. Mark Carruthers talks to Mark Devenport, who is at the Millenium Forum in Derry, about the mood at the conference. He says that a lot of the focus is on 2016 and the upcoming elections and Martin McGuinness' belief that Sinn Fein could become the largest party on both sides of the border. Devenport also highlights what he thinks Adams will say in his speech. He comments on Adams popularity within Sinn Fein, despite the personnel changes of the last year. Next there is footage of Martin McGuinness' speech this afternoon in which he said that he wanted Sinn Fein to be the largest party north and south of the border, and defends Sinn Fein's stance on the welfare reforms debates with £564 million committed for the next 6 years to protect the vulnerable. He also says that Sinn Fein has protected our health & education services in the face of massive cuts by the British Tory party and that north & south they will continue to oppose austerity. He says that Sinn Fein does equality, not austerity. He says that they stand against racism, sectarianism, intolerance & homophobia. He outlines his election hopes & goals. He wants to build the nation that is outlined in the 1916 proclamation, just and fair regardless of colour & creed. Then Mark Devenport talks to Mary Lou McDonald TD & Sinn Fein Vice-President who repeats the party's election aims to end partition and increase their election base. She believes that she can do it. She comments on possible coalition agreements, but only as the largest party. She also comments on the abortion issue and the party's position taken today. She is asked about Gerry Adams problems with Maria Cahill and will that hinder Sinn Fein and Adams personally. She replies that her story is being used politically by Sinn Fein's opponents. Then back to the studio, where Rick Wilford comments on Mary Lou McDonald's comments on abortion & Sinn Fein's position and also May's referendum on same-sex marriage in the Republic. He also comments on Sinn Fein's position of only going into coalition if they are the biggest party. Then Mark Carruthers introduces a film clip of the Greek Foreign Minister Euelid Tsakalotos addressing the conference on Greece's problems with the EU bailout and solidarity in the hard times ahead. Then back to Mark Devenport in Derry who is talking to South Down MLA Chris Hazzard and Eoin O'Broin (former Belfast Sinn Fein councillor) who talks about getting rid of austerity. They discuss the situation in Greece and the need for solidarity going forward against austerity. Chris Hazzard says that Sinn Fein is the only party standing up for vulnerable people. He says that austerity is the price of the union, with £1.5 billion cut from the block grant. He comments on the Westminster election and its relevance. They comment on people in Northern Ireland not being able to vote in Irish Presidential elections. Then it's back to Mark Devenport & Rick Wilford who discuss Sinn Fein's claim to be the party of anti-austerity with a more critical eye. Then they switch to the conference hall where Gerry Adams has arrived to speak. He begins in Irish, then welcomes all of Sinn Fein's foreign friends and dignitaries to the conference. He calls on the Irish government to recognize the state of Palestine, he recalls Bloody Sunday, NICRA marches and welcomes the Bloody Sunday families who are present. He thanks the Londonderry Bands Forum who took part in a fringe meeting. He would like to see Belfast take the same approach as Derry in terms of contentious parades. He praises Derry men Mitchel McLaughlin, John Hume & Martin McGuinness, and the Sinn Fein MLAs and Executive Ministers for their efforts during the Stormont House Agreement (SHA) talks, in which he says that Sinn Fein protected the rights of people on benefits and the long term sick. He says that progress was also made on dealing on the past, where every day marks an anniversary for someone. Today is Sam Marshall. Yesterday was the Gibraltar 3. He hopes that the SHA will bring closure for victims. He welcomes the families of victims of the Ballymurphy massacre and Hooded Man Liam Shannon. He points out that the British 'Cabinet of Millionaires' have cut £1.5 billion from Northern Ireland's block grant. Sinn Fein will oppose austerity north & south and build an anti-austerity alliance. He then attacks Fianna Fail and Fine Gael's budgets and also Labour's over recent years. He says that they have delivered nightmare economics and socialized the debt but never the wealth. He attacks private banking greed, where 191 individuals held £62 billion of the banking debt yet the government blamed the Irish people. He says that it is the corrupt bankers who should be in prison not the water charge protesters. He criticizes Enda Kenny's role in the Euro-zone debt crisis and says that Sinn Fein is the effective opposition voice in the Dail. The government claims that the recovery is under way but he says that it is a two-tier, unequal recovery. Sinn Fein says that the economy should serve the people, not vice versa. It is pro-enterprise and supports a living wage for workers and supports progressive taxation where wealth is used to fund social equality. Sinn Fein will abolish water charges and the property tax and will establish a wealth tax on everyone earning over 100,000 euros per year. He backs foreign investment to help create jobs and small and medium enterprises will get help. Immigrants will not be denied a voice in Ireland's democracy, and furthermore next week Sinn Fein will propose a law that will allow citizens in the north of Ireland to vote in Irish Presidential elections. He also promises a deal for rural Ireland and outlines this in general terms. He says they'll introduce local authority housing and introduce rent controls and offer protection to families in mortgage distress. He promises all citizens equality before the law and supports marriage equality for the LGBTQ community and supports same-sex marriage and calls for a yes vote in the referendum on 22nd May. Referring to the 1916 Rising anniversary coming up he says that it is the opportunity to critically examine our past. He criticizes the Irish government's plans for the centenary. He says that they have failed to honour the 1916 Proclamation, which is Sinn Fein's mission statement. He highlight the government's failure to protect the Moore Street monument. He then comments on listening to Unionists but says that two of everything won't work on one small island. He calls for an all-Ireland conversation. We share a common history and our futures are bound together. Our flag is orange and green. He wishes candidates good luck for the elections and calls for the water charge prisoners to be released. He comments on the smears and lies about Sinn Fein as their vote increases. This will increase as their rivals know that the people want change. He says that Sinn Fein will not prop up a Fianna Fail of Fine Gael government. It wants to lead the next government. Standing ovation shown as Rick Wilford & Mark Carruthers discuss the speech's content followed by Mark Devenport's analysis.

Description:
Lelia Doolan presents the portrait of Bernadette Devlin (McAliskey) using old film clips and interviews past and present. It is Irish with English subtitles. After opening titles the programme begins with a news report from the 1970s and Bernadette's appearance at a rally in Carrickmore after her release from Armagh jail. It shows her radical speech. Then a further press report on her prison release press conference where she answers questions from journalists on her call for an end to rioting. Then as film clips of rioting are shown Bernadette's voice is heard talking about violence and ruthlessness. She says she is not a militarist and is not a soldier. In a current Time interview she says that we are all responsible for violence in society, even tax payers. She says we let other people do the killing for us, and admits that she has a complicated view of it all. She doesn't like violence but has no problem being seen as 'the shadow of a gunman'. Then a film clip for August 1971 with Brian Faulkner introducing internment, followed by Bernadette speaking at an anti-internment rally. Then film clip of Labour opposition leader Harold Wilson talking about the 'political bias' of internment. Then a vox pop of Derry people on internment. Then Bernadette recall the week before the Derry Bloody Sunday march, and being on a march from Dungannon to Coalisland. The RUC stopped the March moving off. Film clip shown of Bernadette arguing with the troops' OC. Film clip shows the running battle with the RUC in the main street with Bernadette's recollections over them. They got to the brickyard in Coalisland where the army made them all squat down whilst they took all their names. She quotes John Currie as saying 'wouldn't it have been boring to have been born at some other time?' Then a film clip of January 30th 1972 in Derry. Bernadette recalls the security forces hostility on that day. She recalls feeling nothing but fear. She was on the platform speaking when the first shots were fired and saw people panicking. She recalls actually saying 'they are firing over our heads' but then recalls seeing people actually being shot. She talks about the significance of Bloody Sunday and choices she made. Film clip shown of that day, Fr Edward Daly with a hankie, a body lying in the street. Fr Anthony Mulvey's reaction on the day. Then Major-General Robert Ford's comments at the scene saying that the army were being fired at and fired 3 shots in reply. He is questioned about this. Then Taoiseach Jack Lynch's TV statement, followed by news reports of the funerals, attended by 25,000 people. In the Commons Home Secretary Reginald Maudling said that the Paras only fired in self-defence. Bernadette walked across the floor and slapped him. Outside she talks to the press about it. 40 years later, after the Saville Inquiry, British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted that the army's actions were 'unjustified & unjustifiable'. Bernadette then gives her analysis of Republicanism at that time. She claims that the official Republican Movement was partitionist and reformist, and that the Provisional movement had no politics at all. Republicanism as an ideology was without articulation. She also claims that the SDLP was 'anti-socialism' and that this created a vaccum for Irish Republican Socialism. An old film clip shows her talk about militant socialism, then a clip of a meeting of left wingers in Dublin with Bernadette speaking. In 1974 Bernadette and Seamus Costello formed the Irish Republican Socialist Party. She recalls that year. She and Costello disagreed over the IRSP having a military wing. Bernadette recalls her problem with Costello over the dominant authority of militarism and why she left. In part two Bernadette talks about Loyalist paramilitaries killing of Catholics randomly. Film clip shown. She calls the mid 1970s 'a conveyor belt to prison', then the abolition of 'Special category' status for political prisoners. In 1979 she stood for EU election on prisoners' rights, despite Sinn Fein's opposition. Later in 1980/1981 public outrage and Sinn Fein policy would come together. Bernadette recalls Christmas 1980 and H-Block committees all across the island. A national network. She recalls Loyalists shooting her at this time, and lists the other H-Block committee members shot before her. She profiles the UDA's role. Film clip of her home shown. She had only just returned to live there before she was shot. She accuses the military of letting it go ahead and then arresting the UDA gunmen. She recalls her injuries as she was shot 8 times. News report shows Bernadette's interview after the attack and she talks about how it meant that peaceful opposition to the state meant that you could be murdered. Bernadette believes that by the end of the hunger strikes the IRA had suffered a massive defeat. She explains her views on this issue. Film clip of hunger strike funerals shown. After the hunger strikes ended Bernadette stepped back from front level politics to focus on local level issues between 1981-1994. The peace process had left her 'swimming against the tide'. A newspaper article from July 1994 is shown. She recalls this period and a battle of survival for her. Between 1996-1998 Bernadette's daughter Roisin was in an English jail fighting extradition to Germany on IRA bomb charges. She was never charged. Bernadette believes that her daughter's arrest was part of an attempt to silence her. Bernadette comments on her children being in trouble just for being related to her. In 1996 she formed the South Tyrone Empowerment Programme (STEP). A July 1997 interview is shown where she explains their role. Speaking presently she still works with them and explains the reason why. In Easter 2011 she gives an interview in Irish to RTE about current dissident Republican violence as part of the cycle of violence in Irish history that we need to break out of. With the Good Friday Agreement in 1998 she believes we got what we could have got in 1972. She then discusses what did we get out of the war? and the role of Republican leaders in administering British rule in the north of Ireland which she says is managing sectarianism rather than desegregating Northern Ireland in housing and education. The current parties are built on sectarianism and identity. This is where we are now. It needs challenged. She gives her opinion on Stormont today. She says it is a step too far for her. She still wants a socialist republic.

Stephen Walker's report includes a brief history of Dungiven during the troubles with the comments of Sinn Fein councillor Sean McGlinchey The DUP's William Hay was also involved. Rory Donaghy of Dungiven Concerned Residents Association comments on the talks. Last Sunday the parade went ahead without bands or banners. The TUV's Willie Ross, a former UUP councillor, gives his reaction that no one from his lodge held talks as discussions are not needed for going to church. The Parades Commission welcomed the dialogue. Then journaistl S McCafferty says that the secret to solving parades disputes is local discussions at ground level. Then the Orange Order's Mervyn Gibson gives his views. Then in the studio Mark Carruthers talks to Mervyn Gibson and Sinn Fein's Gerry Kelly about the parading issue. Mervyn Gibson starts by agreeing with Willie Ross about Dungiven and that common sense prevailed. Then they discuss the issue tomorrow regarding the Carrick Hill/St Patrick's Church flashpoint where the residents have called off their planned protest. Both men give their views and debate whether common sense is being used or not. They debate the rationale of the residents' decision and the Parades Commission's decision regarding the playing of music outside the church, which Mervyn Gibson says that they will appeal in the courts. Both men argue over the role of the Catholic priest and also who speaks for Carrick Hill, the church or the residents? Gerry Kelly says that he supports the Parades Commission's role in dealing with the parade. Mervyn Gibson denies that they want no relegation of parades. They argue over the 2010 policy that was rejected by the Orange Order. They then argue over Ardoyne and the Orange Order's talks with residents there getting nowhere with 93% of Orange parades being allowed with no restrictions. Gerry Kelly dismisses the Orange Order's complaint that there is a 'war' going on against Orange culture. Other facts are put to Mervyn Gibson who goes back to specify the Ardoyne parade and the Tour of the North parade. Gerry Kelly wants to know why the Order wants to go through contentious areas. Next Mark Carruthers discusses the parades issue with commentators Newton Emerson and Cathy Gormley-Heenan, and the judicial review and the Carrick Hill residents calling off of their protest. Both discuss what they consider a common sense approach to the parading issue and the difference between country and city parades. They both also comment on the welfare stand-off at Stormont and the 'phantom budget' idea. It's kicking the can down the road. The programme ends with a humourous look at the breakdown in communication at Stormont.

Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers he asks is a re-write of the Stormont House Agreement on the cards? Today the five main Executive parties held a meeting to review the SHA after 6 months. Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness quoted the latest child poverty figures and told NI Secretary Theresa Villiers to 'put that in her pipe and smoke it'. The NI Secretary has revised her assessment of the agreement from 'grim' to 'bleak'. Then in the studio Alex Maskey (Sinn Fein), Mike Nesbitt (UUP) and David Ford (Alliance) discuss the issue around the future of the SHA, if it even has one. Mike Nesbitt questions the child poverty figures quote and criticizes his language towards Teresa Villiers. He criticizes the DUP for 4 years of underspend totaling £466.7 million. Then Alex Maskey replies and calls the figures a stunt. They argue this point and McGuinness' comments to Teresa Villiers. David Ford says that people need to be realistic. Norther Ireland is a regional administration, not a sovereign government and we need to live within our budget. Mark Carruthers asks them are we now going to see the implementation of the SHA or are they going to introduce a new deal. David Ford says that it looks like some want to renegotiate. Mike Nesbitt says that there is no implementation process and the DUP do not attend Monday meetings on implentation. Alex Maskey says that they are sticking to the SHA talks and supported the budget in January to buy time but on victims and legacy issues he says that it is ridiculous that these are linked to welfare reform. David Ford says that they bought time but that they are not doing anything with that time as the DUP and Sinn Fein won't engage. Alex Maskey denies this and says it's the DUP that don't turn up. Then the three politicians disagree about what the role of the British government is and what they have done to date. They also debate the CBI statement calling on them to live within their budget. They argue over who's policies are to blame, Sinn Fein or the Tories? Then in commentators corner Newton Emerson & Cathy Gormley-Heenan discuss the current impasse and what's needed to get out of the situation they are all collectively. Programme ends with a piece about rows in other parliaments.

Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers the programme reviews today's events and the DUP political resignations over the PIRA links to Sinn Fein and the PSNI Chief Constable's allegations over the K McGuigan murder and he asks the question 'will the political institutions be brought to the brink of collapse?' After his introduction he interviews acting First Minister and Finance Minister Arlene Foster from the DUP on their wider plan and the reasoning behind 4 DUP ministers resigning. The purpose is to achieve a suspension or adjournment in order to create time and space for focused talks on the PIRA's existence. She says that her ideal situation would be for SF to be thrown out of the Executive. The reason that she has remained in place is not keep SF in government but rather to stop 'rogue' SF or 'renegade' SDLP ministers taking decisions that would harm NI. She says that her role now is as a gatekeeper to protect NI from 'rogue' SF/SDLP ministers. She uses that phrase twice. She then reveals that the DUP may re-nominate its ministers within 7 days depending on the British government's response. She wants the British government to respond to the DUP's demands. She is asked for her reaction to the PSNI releasing SF's Northern Chairman Bobby Storey tonight. She replies that that doesn't remove the fact that the PIRA were involved in the murder of K McGuigan. She says that confidence in devolution is ebbing away and that the PSNI do not just arrest people 'willy-nilly'. She wants paramilitary activity dealt with once and for all. She reminds Mark Carruthers that she has suffered at the hands of the PIRA. She says that the DUP have yet to decide about attending Monday's talks with the NI Secretary of State T Villiers. Next a film report covers T Villiers' reaction to the resignations at Stormont today. She says the solution is to be found, as in previous crises, in all-party talks. She admits that the Executive's working relationship has broken down . Then in the studio M Nesbitt (UUP), Gerry Kelly (SF), Alban Magennis (SDLP) and the Alliance's D Ford debate today's DUP resignations and the future of the Executive. He calls Arlene Foster's comments on protecting the institutions from SF & SDLP ministers a very bigoted view. G Kelly says that she has shown a throwback attitude to nationalists/republicans. Then Mike Nesbitt denies that the crisis is all about an inter-unionist cat fight. He says that the Executive is broken. He wants SF to admit that the PIRA still exists as the Ch Con has stated. G Kelly disagrees with M Nesbitt's assessment and questions his credibility and says that he is electioneering. Both men argue about each other's credibility. Then Then the SDLP's A Magennis explains why they won't support the DUP's adjournment calls. Then D Ford & A Magennis discuss who will nominate for the vacant DUP positions if this happens. Then on Monday's NI Secretary talks Mike Nesbitt says that he wants PIRA at the top of the agenda. If it is he will attend the talks. He is questioned on this position by Gerry Kelly. Then Gerry Kelly asks him if he will go if Irish Minister Charlie Flanagan is there. He says no. A Magennis attacks the other parties stance. Next, former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern is interviewed by M Carruthers in a Dublin hotel and gives his view on the latest crisis. He says that the PIRA that existed for years and had Active Service Units, an Army Council, Intelligence, Finance & Engineering units have gone away and that the agreement was that the ASUs would do nothing to undermine the GFA. He says that that is the issue now. He accepts that what was agreed on was nothing more than an 'Old Boy's Network'. He comments on Sinn Fein denials that the PIRA still exists, and he understands unionists' fears that the PIRA still exists. He then comments on Mike Nesbitt going into opposition mode, and on Enda Kenny's role today on the adjournment debate and the possibility of the British government introducing a suspension. He worries about 'sinister elements' filling the vacuum if Stormont collapses. Then in the studio M Devenport, Prof D Heenan and Prof R Wilford discuss the Arlene Foster interview. A Foster's 'renegades' remark is discussed. M Nesbitt's move is criticised. They ask can the institutions survive after 7 days and what exactly do the DUP want the British government to do. (Thurs)

Then in his reaction SF's M McGuinness calls the move shambolic, but in the madness he will find a method to make the talks work. Then film clip of D Cameron's comments from London on the situation, then UUP's Mike Nesbitt's comments on Monday's talks. The SDLP's Claire Hanna and Alliance's Stephen Farry's comments. Then, in an earlier interview, T Magee interviews P Robinson and begins by asking him why he didn't resign. He says it is a deliberate strategy to block institutions and thereby suspending the Assembly but he won't say if he will re-nominate ministers but does say that he won't be handing seats over to SF and the SDLP. T Magee calls it 'hokey cokey' politics. Robinson replies that he can't ignore murder like nothing has happened and that these matters need to be resolved. He criticises the UUP for voting with SF to block an adjournment. He claims that they are upholding their mandate from the electorate. Regarding Monday's talks he wants more clarity from the government and action more than words. Then M Mallet interviews NI Secretary T Villiers in London. She calls it a difficult situation and a serious political crisis, one of many over 20 years. She defends her position on no adjournment. She shares anxiety over paramilitaries with the parties and is looking at ways to move NI ahead and away from Paramilitarism. Then in the studio Tracy Magee gives her analysis of the DUP's plans and what is going to happen at the talks on Monday and will the DUP attend.

Description:
Presented by Noel Thompson the programme begins with an update on the current situation at Stormont and the current NI Secretary T Villiers statement to the Commons about a 'very grave' situation. However this is not the first NI crisis 4 years of suspension ended in 2006 with the St Andrews Agreement. The NI Secretary then was Labour's Peter Hain. In an interview with Noel Thompson he outlines his view on why he thinks that this crisis could have been avoided. Firstly he blames No 10 and David Cameron for not being involved as much as when Labour were in government. He says that the different parties are playing out their own internal party political interests at the expense of the peace process and the Executive. Unionists are competing each other for supremacy and Sinn Fein seem more interested in growing its support in the Republic of Ireland than in maintaining the NI government. He says that a process of political neglect has set in. He criticizes the Kevin McGuigan killing and then goes on to elaborate on why he disagrees with the UUP's stance. He also has doubts about how the Chief Constable George Hamilton has handled events as compared to how Hugh Orde might have dealt with arresting Sinn Fein's Northern Chairperson Bobby Storey then releasing him. He also calls last year's arrest of Gerry Adams, who he says was detained without reason, clumsy & ham-fisted. He says that the PSNI's job is not to be making public statements it is catching criminals. Noel Thompson asks him his view on the Chief Constable blaming the IRA and did he think that he should have remained silent? On paramilitarism he says that the chief Constable has stated that he does not believe that the IRA leadership sanctioned the murder. On Unionist demands for the Independent Monitoring Commission (IMC) he says that this would be fine if it restores Unionist confidence. On Jeremy Corbyn & John McDonnell's election to the Labour leadership he says Unionists do not need to worry. He praises Vernon Coaker, the shadow NI Secretary for his non-partisan approach, as opposed to T Villiers who he says has adopted a partisan approach when he believes she should be neutral. He also says that direct rule should not be brought back under any circumstances. Next Noel Thompson introduces a film report from Jenny O'Leary on possible routes back to Stormont stability. Professor Cathy Gormley Heenan says that this is the closest that we have come to the collapse of Stormont. She talks about how issues have escalated over recent years form flags/parades to wider issues and now the existence of the PIRA. The Chief Constable is quoted on their existence and ten Bobby Storey's views on the PIRA. Commentator Chris Donnelly says that there needs to be an external assessment of the current position of the PIRA and he thinks that this will happen but there is also the problem of welfare reform to be dealt with. The Newsletter's Sam McBride comments on this. Chris Donnelly says that Sinn Fein won't want to hand power back to the British government on the welfare issue. The commentators then give their views on what the public think about the current situation in NI, then a vox pop of QUB students. The politicians need to find a win/win solution for everyone. The commentators then give their views on what this might be. Back in the studio Noel Thompson discusses the issues with G Campbell, G Kelly, A McDonnell, S Farry and D Kennedy. His first question to G Campbell (DUP) is about his parties pre-conditions for the talks process. He calls it a base for talks to ensure that they are successful. The UUP's Danny Kennedy is pushed on his demands for the talks but won't identify his preconditions yet. Sinn Fein's Gerry Kelly says he is willing to enter talks without pre-conditions and scorns the Unionists' positions. He says that Sinn Fein supports policing. On the IMC idea he says that they would just go to the PSNI/Gardai for information and he says that this shows that Unionist do not trust the police. Danny Kennedy (UUP) accuses Sinn Fein of denial about the existence of the PIRA. Then A McDonnell (SDLP) defends his idea of getting US involvement in the talks. He also Defends the SDLP position of not calling for an adjournment of Stormont. Then S Farry (Alliance) rejects preconditions and says that he wants a revamped IMC and explains why. He says that he believes that the current model of devolution is broken. He argues the pros and cons of having an election with Noel Thompson. He says it appears that Unionists simply do not want to share power with Nationalists. D Kennedy & G Campbell criticize him, saying that the problem is a recent murder by PIRA. On G Kelly's denials that the PIRA exists he quotes the PSNI view. G Kelly then quotes Sinn Fein's mandate but D Kennedy says that it is about parties supporting the rule of law. He and G Kelly argue back and forth very loudly about Sinn Fein's support for law. A McDonnell (SDLP) refers to Arlene Foster's 'rogues and renegades' remarks about nationalists as a sign the Unionists have moved away from partnership. G Campbell calls that a red herring. S Farry criticizes the nationalist parties over the welfare reform issue. He clashes with A McDonnell on this issue. Then G Campbell on the election issue and he says that the DUP has the goodwill for talks, S Farry doubts that good will exists. All the politicians comments on the talks problems issue. Then Noel Thompson crosses to a panel of commentators for their opinion on the debate (Dearbhail McDonald, Alex Kane & Mark Devenport). All three are critical and say that it is the attitude of the 5 main parties that is not fit for purpose. Mark Devenport says that it feels like the clock had been turned back to the days where we needed talks about talks. He feels that we are in a lose/lose spiral. They discuss the IMC option and party preconditions. D McDonald outlines Dublin's position on the current situation and Sinn Fein being damaged in Eire and they commentate on alternatives for if the talks fail and public anger.

Part 1
Description:
In Irish with English subtitles this documentary is about the ideals of Irish patriots who challenged British rule in Ireland and their exile to Australia, referred to as the prison without walls. The programme begins in docu-drama style about unrest in Ireland in the 1790s. In the 80 years after that over 3000 prisoners were exiled to Australia. Other political prisoners from America, England, Scotland and Wales were also sent, but their stories once they were in Australia are not well known. In Hobart, Tasmania Billy Bragg, Mick Thomas and Lisa O'Neill put on a concert to commemorate how these exiles inspired the creation of a modern democracy decades before Britain did. The programme uses clips from this concert throughout. The programme then profiles the global political upheavals that were going on in the 1790s. In America the British have been kicked out and in France the King has been executed and a Republic declared. The British have seized the east coast of Australia and Van Diemen's Land. Billy Bragg comments on the penal colonies that were set up there. Back in Ireland the new wave of global idealism has hit Ireland. Dr Niall O' Crossain comments on the movement for democracy & human rights and the formation in 1791 of the United Irishmen in Belfast, which brought together Protestants & Catholics to change the political system. Dr Maura Cronin comments on the British refusal to introduce reforms and the move of the United Irishmen towards militarism. A rebellion began in 1978 with the Battle of Vinegar Hill. 1798 is profiled, with Australian Thomas Keneally's comments. Then doctor Tony Moore comments on the defeat of the rebellion and the save reprisals. Micheal O' Doibhilin states that 500 United Irishmen were arrested in Kildare and 300 were executed. In Clonmel a small band of militants continue to harass the British. They were led by Philip Cunningham. Attack re-enactment film clip is shown. Betrayed by an informant Cunningham is captured in 1799 and exiled to Australia without his family. There are 460 other United Irishmen already in Australia. Film clip shows the Sydney Governor's panicking at as Irish rebels arrive. There are now 600 in Sydney. On the ship to Australia a mutiny led by Cunningham is defeated and he gets 100 lashes. Dr Tadig O'Hannrachan comments on the effect that the United Irishmen will have in Australia. When Cunningham arrives in Australia the Irish make up 12% of the population. He says it was practically a slave colony run by a Protestant ascendency. In 1804 a ship from Ireland brought news of Robert Emmett's rebellion and his execution. On March 4th in Australia Cunningham and his men decide to overthrow their jailers and take a ship back to Ireland. He had 300 men. They sieze arms and go from farm to farm looting and burning, but discipline breaks down with alcohol consumed. On 5th March 1804 British troops arrive at their camp outside Sydney and defeat the United Irishmen. Tomas Keneally comments. Cunningham is hanged without trial. Back in London the Act of Union is passed. London now rules Ireland, but in the Wicklow mountains a 4 year guerilla campaign is waged against the Crown led by Michael Dwyer, known as the Wicklow chief. In 1803 his family is captured and he surrenders on the condition that he is sent to America but the British renege and he is sent to Australia where Governor Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty was in charge. He hated the Irish. Dr Tony Moore comments on Bligh. In 1807 he charges Dwyer with sedition. Dywer is exiled to Norfolk Island in 1808. Bligh is then overthrown by his own troops and Dwyer is released 1 year later. He becomes a policeman and a publican, but alcohol gets the better of him and he dies in 1825, leaving 7 children and 21 grandchildren. 100 years later he was re-buried at Waverley Cemetery and 100,000 people attended his re-burial. Back in the UK Wales has become a hotbed of unrest as industrialization causes misery. Dr Bill Jones comments on the workers' poor conditions. 50% of children died before the age of 5. Billy Bragg comments on the British establishment. In 1836 William Lovett devised the People's Charter for voting rights for all. Dr M Cronin comments on the split within Chartism. Between non-violent & violent action. Two key men emerge. Zephaniah Williams and John Frost. From different backgrounds they plan to march an army of workers on Newport to drive the Crown out of Wales. Ray Howell explains the plans. The plan fails and the leaders are rounded up and put on trial, where they are sentenced to death, which is commuted to transportation for life to Hobart in Van Diemen's Land. They are put in Port Arthur prison. Hamish Maxwell Stewart comments. Williams is put to work in the coal mines. He is strongly suspected of organizing an escape plan and is put in solitary confinement. He describes the conditions in his writings. Dr Tony Moore describes his writings and their effect on ending the transportations. Cassandra Pybus refers to the writings of American slave/martyr Linus Millar, born in 1817 in New York. He joined the American Patriots who wanted to liberate Canada from British rule. In 1838 they cross into Canada to ignite a Canadian revolt. They are quickly rounded up and charged with piratical invasion and sentenced to death but the British commute this to transportation as they did not want to anger the USA. Film clip shows the Governor welcome him with a warning. While working Miller writes about everything going on, the suffering and the conditions. He and another attempt to escape, but were caught and sent to Port Arthur, where he was raped. He writes about the conditions. Also in Port Arthur is Zephaniah Williams. On his release he becomes a Constable but his pardon is refunded by London authorities. He is sent back to Port Arthur.

The Nolan Show
Programme Title:
n.a.
Description:
In the studio live, Steven Nolan debates the crisis at Stormont, in/out ministers, hospital waiting times soaring and the paramilitaries still lurking in the background. Stormont's credibility and survival is on the line. With him to argue the party positions are Alex Maskey (Sinn Fein), Edwin Poots (DUP), Danny Kennedy (UUP), Fearghal McKinney (SDLP) and David Ford (Alliance). Nolan begins with a film clip of a warning from NI Secretary T Villiers on NI's future. Edwin Poots agrees with Nolan that it is a complete farce. He accuses Sinn Fein and the SDLP of blocking welfare reform for the last two years and that this has led to fines and cuts in education and health. He also mentions the two Belfast murders. The in/out ministerial policy is designed is to bring things to a head and end stagnation. He is cross-examined by Nolan on hospital waiting lists. He blames Sinn Fein. Nolan criticizes the DUP for leaving a finance minister in place but not a health minister. Poots says that they can't just ignore two murders and the loss of million in relation to welfare reform. Then Nolan turns on SF's Alex Maskey about the Chief Constable's recent statement on PIRA activity and SF's statement that the PIRA has gone away. Maskey replies that Sinn Fein ministers are at their posts and in talks. Nolan asks Maskey has George Hamilton backed down on his claim that the PIRA were involved in the McGuigan murder. Maskey doesn't answer and tells Nolan to ask George Hamilton himself. He repeats that SF haven't murdered anyone and that they have a political mandate and are looking for a solution to this situation. He repeats that the Tories are part of the problem and that we need more money. Nolan criticizes NI Secretary of State T Villiers for refusing to appear on the show. Then Nolan invites questions from the audience. A question asked about pay when they are not doing their jobs. Poots answers. Then D Kennedy is tackled over their resignation from the Executive over the McGuigan murder. Nolan says that they aare running away from the problems. D Kennedy says that they have forced the issues to be dealt with. He denies that it is political maneouvering because of an election next year. He repeats the Chief Constable and David Cameron on paramilitarism. He is reminded that last year the DUP & UUP stood side by side with Loyalist paramilitaries during the so-called 'graduated response' to the parades issue. D Kennedy says that Loyalists aren't in government and recalls John Hume's talks with SF/IRA in the early peace process. Nolan questions him further on his links to groups who knee-cap people. Then A Maskey tackles him on the use of the word 'contaminated' when talking about talking with SF. He reminds Kennedy of UVF involvement in drug dealing. Nolan stops the conversation as the clash gets angry here between Nolan, Poots and SF. Poots says he 'holds his nose' when dealing with Sinn Fein. Nolan questions him about this. He says that the smell of SF is of years of terrorism. Maskey and Poots exchange angry words over the issue of working together. Poots says that SF's benches are packed with ex-prisoners and hunger strikers whilst Maskey says that SF are building peace in NI. Nolan asks them do they hate each other as he is worried that these two parties are running NI's future. Maskey points to Martin McGuinness' condemnation of dissident Republican violence. Poots says that he doesn't hate SF, as that would 'eat him up' but that he does business with people that he doesn't like. The Alliance's David Ford says that we need to get away from the 'whataboutery' and finger-pointing or else we are not going to make any progress. Stormont requires people to work together. He then gives his view on the independent panel on paramilitaries and will it be a game-changer or not. He wants a full IMC reinstated. Then the SDLP's F McKinney says that the unionists are electioneering and guilty of hypocrisy in relation to their attitude to the UDA. He criticizes the DUP in/out policy. Then Poots and Nolan accuse the SDLP of blocking welfare reform. This point is argued back and forth. He is asked what is the SDLP's 'big idea' for reducing waiting lists? He says that it is to get more money from the British government. D Ford says that the Treasury will not agree of that. McKinney accuses him of siding with the DUP and giving into the Tory austerity policy. D Kennedy criticizes the SDLP. Then Nolan shows June 2015 health service figures for cancer waiting lists. 106 had to wait two months for their first appointment. Other statistics are shown. Poots accuses the SF/SDLP 'Magpies' for taking all the money for welfare claimants. Both debate the point then questions from the audience again. One wants direct rule. Then Nolan reads out a M McGuinness statement on welfare payments that people here have that they don't have in England anymore such as free prescriptions, lower student fees etc. Nolan asks if SF is preparing to 'roll over'. A Maskey says that they will look at everything during the talks, and SF are listening to the people. Nolan pushes him on SF's welfare 'red lines'. A Maskey comments on SF's Stormont House Agreement position. Then another question from the audience criticizing local politicians for bickering. Nolan ends the debate and thanks the panel.

n.a.
Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers tonight's programme focuses on the all-time low in relations between the DUP and Sinn Fein,especially after Edwin Poots' remarks about 'holding his nose when dealing with SF. Earlier M Carruthers interviewed acting First Minister A Foster about this, but first asks her her views on the current talks at Stormont. Overall she says that progress has been made but that there are good days and bad days. She believes that it will be a 4 to 6 week process. The M Carruthers asks her what she thought of Edwin Poots' choice of words when talked about having to 'hold his nose' when dealing with SF. She says that it is a challenging time and emotions are high and that we should always remember what happened in the past but be positive about the future and that that is what we need to focus on. She says that the DUP respects SF's madate but that that doesn't take away from the fact that some of their members were involved in paramilitary activity and heinous crimes. When asked about C Ní Chúilin's view that E Poots comments were 'disgraceful' she says that she was directly affected by PIRA activity and that she finds it difficult to work with SF but that she doesn't actually hold her nose, but that it shouldn't surprise anyone that the DUP find it difficult to work with SF, some of whom are murderers but she believes that the DUP are right to be involved in devolution for the sake of her children. She recalls her own 'rogues and renegades' language from a few weeks ago and says that she has sympathy with Edwin. She then says that M Carruthers has misquoted her 'rogues and renegades' statement and they argue about what she said. She said she was need as a 'gatekeeper' as she has already had to challenge an SDLP ministerial decision. She says she does not regret her comments and words are important but actions are much more important and this what has caused the current crisis. On the DUP policy of in/out ministers she defends this action and doesn't accept that it was a mistake. She comments on why Health minister Simon Hamilton was made a 'special' minister like Finance. She goes on to deride direct rule if that happens. She says that the IRA caused this situation with the Kevin McGuigan murder. She says they didn't wait to see the panel report on paramilitarism before going for semi-detached ministers. She wants to hear that there is no targeting going on, that there are no arms being bought but she doesn't regret pulling out of the Executive. She's then asked to comment on UKIP's David McNarry and Labour's Jonathan Powell's discussions with Loyalist paramilitaries in an attempt to get them to leave the stage. She welcomes any move which aims to disband paramilitaries. Next M Carruthers introduces a film report from Gareth Gordon looking at the recent success of the NI football team and asks whether many, or any, NI Catholics now call themselves supporters of the NI football team? Has the NI football team re-built its reputation, like Windsor Park? Film of 17/11/1993 NI v RoImstch shown. Sectarianism was rife that night, leading to a play called 'One Night in November'. PhD student comments on Nationalists' views of the team now. Then a vox pop of NI fans' views in a bar in Belfast. The Irish News editor Noel Doran on his views on NI football, the the DUP's Nelson McCausland, then SF's Cathal O' hOisin. They comment on God Save the Queen being played at NI matches. Next report M Carruthers interviews SF's Caral Ní Chuilin, Culture, Arts & Leisure Minister on the cuts that she has had to make to budgets and why the cuts are happening now. He budget has went from £14m in 2012 to £10m this year. She blames the Tories' austerity policy. She doesn't have the budget to meet the demands for culture and arts services. She answers M Carruthers question on who gets the cuts, especially th Arts Council or the Ulster Orchestra. She is also asked if SF's stance on welfare reform is softening after a speech last night. She denies that that was what Martin McGuinness was talking about, but talks will continue. On Edwin Poots remarks about SF she said they were offensive and disgraceful and follow on from the 'rogues & renegades' comments from A Foster, and D Kennedy's 'contamination' remarks. She holds her head high, as do all of the SF team. Then in commentators' corner Dawn Purvis and Denis Bradley give their reactions to A Foster's interview comments on the paramilitary review panel's hopes, and reality of politics and respecting Sinn Fein's mandate. They also comment on dealing with the past and the national security issue, and the talks between Loyalists and J Powell. They also comment on the use of language by politicians and its consequences.

Eamon Maillie meets Martin McGuinness
Programme Title:
n.a.
Description:
Journalist E Maillie interviews Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness about his upbringing in Derry, the role of religion and politics in his family home, the 'battle of the bogside' an incident where he stole from his school, his joining of the Official IRA and leaving to join the Provisional IRA. He also recalls Bloody Sunday and rejects the Saville Inquiry allegation that he was armed on that day. He blames a British agent for that allegation. He recalls his two days of giving evidence to the inquiry and explains why he decided to appear in front of the judge in the first place. In questioning him E Maillie asks him how he can square his religious upbringing and his Christianity with belonging to the violent PIRA? M McGuinness states that he was very proud to have been in the PIRA. E Maillie asks him did he ever kill anyone when he was in the PIRA? M McGuinness says that he won't talk about shooting anyone or participate in sensationalizing violence by commentating. E Maillie asks him that if there was a truth commission set up here would he testify about the soldiers that he killed, or that the PIRA killed, in Derry? Again he replies that he won't sensationalise his time in the IRA. E Maillie asks him has he repented for PIRA violence in his own head? He again repeats that he was proud to have been in the PIRA. He says that he was always political and he goes on to recall the beginning of the peace moves that would eventually lead to the Good Friday Agreement. Maillie asks him why Gerry Adams won't admit to having been in the IRA. McGuinness replies that anyone who admits to having been in the PIRA could be arrested, charged and jailed. M McGuinness goes on to discuss what he thinks Protestants and Unionists in NI think of him, leading to his view on his belated friendship with the late DUP leader Ian Paisley. He also comments on his rejection of the beliefs and ideas of dissident Republicans and gives his views on the threats that they pose to himself but he says that if he was worried about that then he wouldn't open the door in the morning. The peace process is more important than all that he says.

Part 2
Description:
In 'docudrama' style this programme continues with the same theme as part1, to deal with how the British Empire dealt with protests against its rule in Ireland, Wales and England, but it is Irish rebels and Welsh radicals who were at the forefront of this faced being exiled to Australia, with over 40,000 Irish rebels sent to Australia, where many continued the fight for justice. In 1848 an aristocrat and son of a West-Indian slave challenged the Crown and was charged with treason. Then a concert of songs about transportation by Billy Bragg, Mick Thomas and Lisa O'Neill praises these rebels who helped bring democracy to Australia. Film clip shown. The episode begins with an explanation of why Britain used Australia as a penal colony, but by the 1840s a campaign against transportation had begun. Dr Tadig O' Lannrachan comments, then writer Thomas Kenneally comments passing on their radical ideas while in Australia. Dr Tony Moore comments on the growth of the anti-transportation movement alongside calls for self for Australians and democracy. The programme then profiles John Frost, a former Welsh magistrate and mayor in 1839. In 1839 he a Zephaniah Williams marched on Newport to drive the British out of south Wales. The rising failed and they were sent to Van Dieman's Land. Dr David Howell comments on the cruelty inflicted on the prisoners. John Frost wrote letter entitled 'The Republic of letters' on the cruelty and barbarity. Frost is put to hard labour. Aged 57, after 14 years a convict he and Williams are freed but are not allowed to return to Wales. Williams becomes a coal miner and Frost travels to the USA in 1855 and campaigns to end the transportation policy. Dr Tony Moore gives details of his writings about the evils of the British policy. In Europe in 1848 the springtime of nations erupts as people rise up against unfair regimes. In Ireland Dr Maura Cronin explains the Young Ireland movement's peaceful struggle to change society led by MP William Smith O'Brien. Dr Tony Moore explains his background. However by 1845 the potato famine had hit Ireland. O'Brien becomes increasingly angry at Britain's failure to help Ireland. 1.5 million people died in the famine and another 1 million emigrated, yet food was still exported to England. M O'Doibhilin explains Ireland's despair. 10/4/1848 O'Brien's speech at Westminster attacks British rule in Ireland. T Moore comments on its effect in Ireland. In July 1848 in Commons in Tipperary the Young Irelanders light the spark by defending a widow against eviction and shooting at the police. The academics highlight O'Brien's unsuitability for leading revolution or violence. British reinforcements arrive and after the cottage siege the revolution falls apart. In a land full of starving people no-one wants to fight. O'Brien is sentenced to death. After an outcry in Ireland, the USA and England he and others are transported to Australia. On his arrival in November 1849 the British exiled him to Maria Island to silence him. An attempt to escape fails and he is sent to Port Arthur prison. The cruel and inhumane treatment is highlighted. Tony Moore explains how Smith O'Brien kept his links with the anti-transportation movement. Eventually he gets a ticket to leave. Freedom but he cannot leave Australia. Australian citizens welcomed him and he was feted by prominent people and he campaigns for democracy. He writes a constitution for Tasmania. Jack Kineally comments, then T Moore on Smith O'Brien's importance. In 1856 he is allowed back to Ireland and dies in 1864. Most convicts die in Australia. The programme then profiles Welshmen who belonged to the 'daughters of Rebecca', rural people who attacked toll gates and toll houses that charged them to use the roads in rural Wales. They were also called the 'hitmen' of Chartism. The name follows the fact that they were dressed in women to carry out the attacks. Only two were ever charged, John Jones and David Davies. One was a former soldier and the other was a poet. Both are sent to Van Diemen's Land and once there John Jones proves to be a troublesome prisoner. The behavior of prisoners is shown on their 'charge sheets'. Jones was 14 years in Australia before he was allowed home. During his time in Australia he received 1000 lashes. His downfall after he was released was alcohol. By 1854 Z Williams' coalmine was a thriving business. He takes Jones and Davies under his wing. Williams died in 1874. His grandson became a Liberal MP for 23 years. Back in Wales a new Chartist generation led by William Cuffey, a tailor and son of a freed slave, demands radical politics and change. He organizes a rally in London in 1848. 300,000 attended. Queen Victoria left London. Maura Cronin recalls events that day as Parliament rejects their petition. Cuffey is arrested and sentenced to transportation for life. Dr T Moore comments. In Van Diemens Land Cuffey campaigns against masters & servants act which controlled employment laws. He spoke at meetings from 1856. In 1867 transportation to Australia is stopped. The last ship in October 1867 contains 60 Irish Fenians, the last political convicts sent to Australia. The programme gives details of the Fenian attacks on Britain. The academics give details of the Fenian uprising. Among the convicts is a lawyer called John Flood. He was interested in writing, even on the prison ship. He read to the fellow prisoners. Thomas Kinneally comments. In 1871 Flood is freed and founded a newspaper, the Irish Citizen. Later in Queensland he owns the Gympie Times. Tony Moore comments on their achievements, especially on democracy in Australia. William Cuffey dies in 1870. All the characters highlighted in these two programmes are mentioned and their role in Australian advancement is highlighted but imperfections still exist in Australia regarding Aboriginals.

Description:
Presented by Mark Carruthers he begins by highlighting the issue of paramilitaries that hangs heavy over Stormont following the British government commissioned report last week on paramilitary activity. Despite unionist cynicism Sinn Fein insist that the IRA has gone away. According to the DUP's Peter Robinson our politicians have just two weeks to save Stormont from this and problems over other issues such as welfare reform and a budget. Film report of events of the week, starting with T Villiers presenting the report on the paramilitaries to Westminster and coverage of the political reaction to it from NI parties. Then M Carruthers interviews Sf's north Belfast MLA Gerry Kelly on his views of the claims that the IRA army council controls the IRA and SF. He says that SF is opposed to criminality and that the IRA leadership has brought all its people on board in support of the peace process and SF is controlled by its Ard Comhairle. He says that disagreement with the PSNI is part of democracy and that he disagrees with their comments about the PIRA still existing. If the report allows the unionists who have left the talks to return then he is glad of that as there are many issues that need dealt with. He repeats that the IRA no longer exists and comments on the talks process and says that the parties met today and engaged on the issues. He believes that the two governments have to be involved. He thinks that Mike Nesbitt and the UUP's position is an internal unionist battle with the DUP. He is then asked if he welcomes the investigation into Stakeknife. He says that he does and that the truth must come out whether it is comfortable or uncomfortable. Then he comments on the Haddock and Finucane cases and state agents being involved in murder. He believes an outside police force should handle the inquiry. Next M Carruthers interviews M Nesbitt and asks him why it is so important to him to get SF to admit that the IRA still exists. He explains his position that SF is in denial and is uncreditable. Then he argues with M Carruthers about his view of the DUP comment that SF leaders were always 'the same DNA' as the army council. Nesbitt says he won't flip-flop but will stay in the talks but might not sign up to adeal unless Sinn Fein admit that the IRA still exists. He says that he wants rid of all paramilitaries but denies his stance is about the election next year. Next, the internal battle within the SDLP as Colum Eastwood challenges A McDonnell for the leadership. Film report from Gareth Gordon profiles the contest, which has been low key. Commentator David McCann comments, then Colum Eastwood interview where he says he has asked for a leadership debate. A McDonnell says C Eastwood is inexperienced and too young to lead the SDLP as this stage. Then SDLP unrest in West Tyrone is profiled, with Daniel McCrossan's selection is profiled. A McDonnell defends his selection. He comments on the party chairwoman resigning this week and says she has no problem with his leadership. Then C Eastwood says that he would handle internal matters differently, then newly elected councillor John Gallen defends A McDonell's leadership. Then retiring MLA Dominic Bradley says that the challenge is good for the party. Tonight C Eastwood launched his campaign and was backed by Alex Attwood who explains why but A McDonnell denies that he is worried, and focuses on the criminality within loyalist paramilitaries which is highlighted in the report. Joining him are the chief executive of Cooperation Ireland Peter Sheridan and Sophie Long, a PhD student researching loyalism. P Sheridan believes that all the organisations are still a feature of life 20 years after the GFA. The justice agency needs to step up to deal with criminality and support those organisations that want a peaceful society. Many in these groups are genuine and honest. Sophie Long believes that the transformation of loyalist groups can be achieved. The issues to be addressed are social and economic, and solutions cannot be imposed on loyalists by others like mainstream unionism. She says that those who can't drop criminality are a matter for the PSNI. Both then discuss what tangible process would work and would be verifiable, and the issue of funding for loyalists. Then commentators Alex Kane and Paul McFadden discuss M Nesbitt and G Kelly's interviews, Stakeknife and loyalist criminality. Programme ends with film clip of local politicians playing golf.

Description:
Presented by Tara Mills she asks the question 'what's the real story behind the Stormont talks situation?' with mention of deadlines and 'end games' this past week. Is there progress being made? Are the SDLP, UUP and Alliance just 'Outsiders'. Also tonight, has the DUP's decision to resume their ministerial duties after the paramilitary report upset their grass-roots supporters? The Tara Mills looks back at the insults being traded this week at Stormont for clues on who is making a deal and who is not. First Peter Robinson comments, the M McGuinness then M Nesbitt. Then in the studio she is joined by a panel of politicians. S Hamilton (DUP), A McDonnell (SDLP) and S Farry (Alliance). Both the UUP and SF declined to take part. S Hamilton begins by saying that their aim is to save Stormont and devolution but not at any price. He mentions serious issues like paramilitaries, budget and welfare reform but he believes that people want Stormont to be there to resolve these issues. Tara Mills mentions the change in the DUP's language towards SF from July to now. He admits that there have been difficulties over the recent months, beginning with the murder of Kevin McGuigan and accusations against PIRA. He admits that they have been working with SF and the other parties. A McDonnell says that he feels that a SF/DUP deal is in the offing as they have been talking Behind the scenes. He maintains that the SDLP has made a contribution to improving the situation at Stormont house. On the legacy issue he says that the current British Government legislation on the issue is very weak and flawed and not fit for purpose and will not provide truth and justice for victims and survivors because anything contentious is protected by a 'national 'security' clause. To work properly the Historical Investigation Unit (HIU) needs independence. Then S Farry (Alliance) outlines their situation regarding any SF/DUP deal. For them it is not just a matter of 'saving' Stormont but of a whole new system at Stormont. He accuses M Nesbitt of being disruptive over the last few months and shows little sign of principle with his remarks about paramilitaries as he shares a platform with them from time to time. Then T Mills asks S Hamilton for details of the financial deal that he thinks will help solve welfare reform but he doesn't give specific details. Then A McDonnell criticizes the DUP's 'hokey cokey' over the last few months and goes on to criticize the outworking of welfare reform, which he says needs fine tuned and not a 'slash and burn' welfare reform. S Farry defends welfare reform as it is in the Stormont House Agreement. They then give their views on handing welfare reform over to England and argue amongst themselves over the issue of welfare reform. Then A McDonnell says that he is confident of winning the SDLP leadership election. T Mills pushes him on his falling support, which he denies. Next she asks S Hamilton about criticism of the DUP's in/out ministerial policy. Next item is the battle within unionism since the killing of K McGuigan. The UUP walked away from the Executive, the DUP operated an in/out ministerial policy but since the NI Sec's report on paramilitarism the DUP have returned to normal business despite the revelations about the IRA army council. T Mills introduces a report from S Walker examining how the rank and file of unionism view the DUP strategy. It begins with Peter Gibson's views. In 1993 the IRA murdered his father. He voted no in 1998 to the GFA and backed the DUP. Now he can't understand why they have gone back into government. He says that they have sold out. Then Prof Jon Tonge says that there is bewilderment within the DUP as to why they have gone back into the Executive. He says that the UUP are offering clarity. Film of 1999, and D Trimble facing criticism for going into government with SF without decommissioning. Film of DUP's Ruth Patterson's comments then and now. Then A Foster defends their in/out policy. Both argue their positions then S Walker comments. Back in the studio T Mills is joined by Denis Bradley and QUB Prof John Brewer to discuss the current impasse in dealing with legacy issues and the British government's determination to control everything through a national security clause on what is revealed. D Bradley says it is completely unnecessary due to the Euro Convention on Human Rights giving protection. He upholds the SDLP position that the British government cannot be more important than the unionist or republican people. Prof Brewer says we are driving the peace process forward by only looking in the rear view mirror. We need to set the past in the context of the future. He says it must be built on trust and no one party can be in charge of what is disclosed. Both then give their views on the impasse and what the role of republicans should be. Then commentators Alex Kane and Paul McFadden give their views on a possible SF/DUP deal, M Nesbitt's position and A McDonnell's leadership position.

Programme Title:
n.a.
Description:
The documentary focuses on the nurses in NI who, during the troubles, treated the wounded and the dying from all backgrounds without question or favour. The programme features WAVE injured Mark Kelly & Jenny McNern, WAVE CEO Jean Orr, M Moutray & Sandra Peake. The programme begins with a vox pop of the nurse contributors on their views of their job. Then after the opening titles Martelle McParland discusses becoming a nurse, as does Orla McAlinden, Marianne Moutray, Lorna Finlay, Clare Smyth, Vera Poots, Jean Garland. Margaret Kelly recalls the strict regime that nurses worked under. Many recall Belfast as a war zone and the sound of gunfire. Margaret Graham recalls the bombing of the Red Lion. Horace Reid recalls nurses dealing for the first time with people with their legs blown off. Film clip of emergency room shown. It was a sight young 18 year olds weren't prepared for but they all dealt with it. Then some of the nurses recall the funnier side of working in the hospitals. Eleanor Hayes recalls Dr Gray sewing up a loyalist paramilitary who had been stabbed in his King Billy tattoo and not distorting the tattoo. Violence was an everyday occurrence and the nurses dealt with its results. Anne Grant recalls the smell, sorting the possessions, then M Moutray recalls sitting with patients who didn't have long to live. Then Margaret Graham recalls doing the same for an injured black soldier, just making him feel that he wasn't alone.

She recalls keeping injured suspects clothes for forensics. Sandra Peake recalls treating a young wounded soldier who was the same age as herself. As a student she had to carry his amputated leg out of the theatre. For the nurses there was an emotional price to pay for their job and they all supported each other. There was no medical counselling. Annie Courtney explains. Various nurses comment on how they dealt with the stress. Counselling wasn't available for patients either, often with long term consequences. Sandra Peake explains the ongoing impact on them today. Then Horace Reid talks about Mark Kelly. Newspaper clip of Mark is shown, and his case of 40 years of trouble, marriage breakdown because he got no counselling help.

Description:
Mark Carruthers tonight tries to find out just how far away a political agreement is at the Stormont talks as NI Secretary T Villiers says that an agreement next week is possible and Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan says it possible but not probable. Another discussion on tonight's programme is how NI should handle next year's significant republican and unionist commemorations. Also tonight a discussion on Petition of concern and how it is being used at Stormont. First, Mark Carruthers interviews NI Secretary T Villiers on the current Stormont House Agreement mark2 talks and the chance of success as she sees it. She says that next week is crucial and that some of the gaps between the parties are closing but she gives no details. She says all 5 parties involved in the talks want to 'make this place work'. She also says success is possible, but won't say probable. On the issue of national security she says that it is a very difficult issue and a solution doesn't look easy to achieve here. She says that it is the British governments responsibility to protect national security and if they depart from that they would be giving assistance to terrorists around the world. She would like to progress all of the issues rather than make a deal without this one. Her goal is for a 5 party agreement and she is asked if she would proceed if only the DUP & SF agreed a deal. She says that she is realistic about the talks but is hopeful. She is questioned on the NI economy and the recent job losses here at Michelin and says there is economy recovery across the UK & NI, and mentions Wrightbus in Ballymena. She denies NI is a 'place apart' as the CofE Archbishop of Canterbury said. She mentions devolution of corporation tax and says that the Michelin factory wasn't competitive. She says she's being realistic. She praises the 1988 GFA where bitter enemies came together for the common good and NI leaders now need to find a way forward for the Executive to keep working for the people of NI. She says that without a budget and an agreement on welfare reform we don't have workable institutions and will be heading for a period of suspension and direct rule which she says would be a serious political setback. Next Mark Carruthers reminds that next year, 2016, will see the anniversaries of the Somme and also the Easter Rising. He introduces a Chris Page film report which examines how the past still echoes in the present, and how next year our history will feel particularly close. Historian Dr Eamon Phoenix explains the significance of the events and coming to terms with the events. Murals on the Shankill & Falls roads profiled. Author Ruth Tallon comments on the radical socialism of the 1920s & 1930s and Winifred Carney's marriage to George McBride. Tom Hartley outlines what he would want unionists to be involved in with Rising commemorations, the PUP's Billy Hutchinson's views on interactions at 1916 ceremonies. Then the other parties views on ceremonies. UUP leader M Nesbitt says he will go to Dublin to honour the British soldiers that died in the Rising. Next item for profile by M Carruthers is the use of the petition of concern at Stormont by the political parties. C Eastwood's remarks at Stormont on Monday during the debate on same sex marriage, then SF's Phil Flanagan's views, then DUP's A Foster. The DUP vetoed the passing of a same sex marriage bill. In the studio Green Party MLA Stephen Agnew and QUB's Dr Alex Schwarz discuss how the petition of concern has been used by the political parties at Stormont and its possible misuse on social issues and why is there a petition of concern at all and do we need to fix it, or limit its use. Dr Schwartz outlines his ideas for fixing it. S Agnew also gives his views on the current Stormont talks. Then M Carruthers talks to tonight's commentators about their reactions to T Villiers comments about the Stormont talks, and the chances of a deal and her negative view. They found it unsettling and felt it only really matters if SF/DUP/Alliance agree the deal. Then they comment on the UUP holding an event in Dublin for dead British troops. They worry if it's seen as a competing event. Next item they discuss is Joe McWilliams painting in the Ulster Museum showing some Orangemen wearing KKK hoodsand the political reaction to it from unionists. Film ends with a film clip showing Cáral Ní Chuilin's clashes in Stormont.

M. Carruthers then questions his political judgement when he carried the coffin of an INLA man in 2012 at a paramilitary display. C. Eastwood reply's he knew Seamus Coyle very well and was present when he died, he also questioned his prediction that in 2013 A. Attwood would be in a Euro MEP seat.

Then they discuss the possibility of a Stormont house talks deal being done tomorrow. Programme ends with film clip of MLA's being friendly to each other for a change. (Thursday)
