An impression of a year in Ulster in the words and music of Harry Barton and James Simmons
This programme was broadcast on R4 N Ireland and in the BBC's World Service in December 1972.
I found the programme very moving ... it should have some impact in bringing the people towards a feeling of the terrible effects of violence, wrote a listener from Londonderry, and from Kenya: This method of telling the story of the last few years in Ulster was to me far more convincing than all the statistics of the more usual reports
Producer VIRGINIA HARDY followed by an interlude
