The story of the Peace People of Northern Ireland
They arose on a tide of emotion four years ago, after three little children were killed in an awful accident of war. They marched in their thousands, clasping hands across the sectarian divide.
Then the tide of emotion receded. The marching stopped and gradually both money and members have faded away. This year the children's mother killed herself and co-founder Betty Williams left the Peace People.
Were they ever-are they still - a force for peace in Northern Ireland? Were they doomed to fail, or did they - do they - bring failure on themselves?

A Victim of the Aurora by THOMAS KENEALLY
A man is murdered during Sir Eugene Stewart 's South Polar Expedition of 1910. He is a journalist who had ferreted out unsavoury facts about the past lives of members of the- expedition. In the claustrophobic situation of mid-winter Antarctica fears and suspicions are easily aroused. Nearly everyone has' a motive for the murder and in the background lurk the ' ghosts ' of two missing members of an earlier expedition who could, just conceivably, still be alive.
