Been watching, spotlight on the troubles, the secret history. On BBC iplayer, fascinating insight into the troubles.

Have to say I thought that one of the most thought provoking series I had seen on TV for years. Being a child of the seventies and growing up in London, I was aware of the threat that was posed by the IRA. This series helped to add a perspective on the troubles that I had not seen before, that of the Northern Irish catholic community. Whilst I still finished the series abhoring the violence that was used by republicans it also showed the loyalist groups use of violence which was equally abhorent. It also gave me an understanding of how hard won the peace is that was brought about by the GoodFriday agreement. I would thoroughly recommend this series, especially to anyone who thinks that the potential for a re-emergance of the troubles is a small possibility, this series showed how fragile that peace still is.
