Just watching this. Stunning and tragic.

I was a child in the early 70s.

This film has no political agenda

The listing of deaths

Its heartbreaking and scary with the Brexit situation.The good friday agreement gave the people of NI a normal life for the first time in a very long time .Sad if Boris and co manage to wreck the peace that was achieved ,NI deserves better .

This was an excellent piece of documentary movie making. What a tremendous achievement on the part of the authors of the book on which it is based. Sad to say, the book was only published in a limited edition with the support of a charitable foundation.

I watched part of this yesterday evening and will finish watching it soon. The content was harrowing but very sensitively done. The open letter written by the mother of a British soldier to a sniper who killed her son was heartbreaking. I too hope that the peace agreement isn’t shattered by the Brexit negotiations.
