Having read the previous comment on this programme and being a resident of the six British occupied counties of Ireland from the catholic/nationalist community i feel the need to respond.

The RUC portrayed in this film are very different from the now defunct,real life sectarian force they were.the previous author is basically ignorant of the facts and truth about Irish politics.the RUC were a protestant militia with no intention of operating fair policing.their brutal actions have led to many deaths of innocent catholics and many leaked documents reveal their collusion with loyalist paramilitaries/protestant extremists in the targeting of catholics/nationalists/republicans.

The film itself leaves many questions unanswered and asks many more.to anyone wanting to know about Irish politics carry out some research then watch this.only then can you formulate an opinion
