Due to a transfer of the CAIN web site to a new server on 24 May 2006 the following search facility is not working. Consideration is being given to converting the database to allow it to work on the new server.

The following is a first draft (v1) of a a database of information on television programmes about the Northern Ireland conflict. The database contains details of programmes that were broadcast by the British and Irish broadcast companies between 1968 and 1996. The information contains details on 695 programmes, or main news or current affairs items about 'the Troubles'. The information is currently in draft form and certain modifications will be made to the search page during 1997. The information in the database was supplied by the Film and Sound Resource Unit of the Faculty of Art, Design and Humanities, University of Ulster.
