: The Price of Violence

Tuesday's Documentary
Every wound and every death that has resulted from the fighting has caused a suffering that is universal. In Northern Ireland today, violence affects everybody. '... It's a tremendous price to pay for nothing - because there's nothing been done ... I can see a terrible lot of things going on here in Ireland and they're just not getting through. For three years people have been shot, maimed, blown up - everything. It's just taken as an everyday occurrence ... '
(Belfast bomb victim who lost both legs.)
Harold Williamson talks to the losers in Northern Ireland -the widows, the children, the injured, the frightened, the dispossessed; the soldiers; people of different religions, different politics, but spokesmen for neither; and the ordinary people who are paying the price of violence.


Talks: Harold Williamson
Producer: Tony Broughton

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
