Abstract

This controversial documentary explores the divisions in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. Although director Marcel Ophüls favors the Catholics, he also reveals political, economic, and social divisions that do not correspond to religious identity. The BBC refused to air the film, strengthening arguments about the intentional underreporting of the Troubles in British media during the early years of the conflict.
