The Burden of History 22:00, 1999 (Ref: EU9936)


As violent confrontations threaten to de-rail the peace process in Northern Ireland we examine how any peace must navigate historic contradictions at every turn. This conflict has endured for nearly 400 years and puzzled and infuriated outsiders. This film looks at the history of the conflict, how it began and why there is such difficulty in breaking down the lack of trust on both sides.
