While bombs explode, Northern Ireland has been trying to run business as usual - or even better than usual. Like all remote regions, Ulster has an economic problem: old industries are running down - new industries need investment from outside. The Government have offered tempting bait - up to 70 per cent of the first cost of creating factories in Northern Ireland. And it has worked - with new plant Ulster's industrial production is growing at twice Britain's rate.
But is that enough for Ulster, or, with subsidies of Â£200 a head for every man, woman and child, is it too much for the taxpayer?

A short season featuring films of Jean Vigo, one of the most brilliant and revolutionary directors in film history.
A Propos de Nice
Vigo's first film is a portrait of the city of Nice, its people, its casino, its carnival - and its graveyards. The young director was an admirer of early Soviet film-making and its technique of 'Kino-Eye.' His camera restlessly explores Nice, 'a city of pleasure, haunted by death.'
Zero de Conduite
Based largely on Vigo's own experiences as a pupil in two provincial boarding schools. Zero de Conduite remains a definitive statement on school life and the nature of authority. By turns a hilarious satire and a bitter indictment of the school system, the film has been the subject of controversy since it was released (and immediately banned) in France 40 years ago. Its unique quality of dreamlike fantasy has influenced countless directors.
