: Children in Crossfire

The first of two films about children in Northern Ireland.
In 1974 Children in Crossfire examined the lives of young people caught up in the troubled areas of Belfast and Londonderry, Children who, even then, had for five years lived with violence and death as an everyday fact of life. The story is told through their songs, games and paintings. It's told in their words, and in the words of their parents, teachers and doctors, and in the words of the Army, for whom the children had become an insuperably tragic problem.
At that stage no one knew what the effect of the troubles would be on the minds of these children, because there had never been a war quite like this one.
Tomorrow evening, A Bright, Brand New Day ... ? reveals what has happened to those same children - children who've never known peace, only eight more years of the troubles.
I cannot remember a more heart-breaking documentary on television (SUNDAY TIMES) The saddest, most chilling film documentary for years. (EVENING NEWS)
