As I said I enjoyed the programme for what it was,nothing more than a good story, maybe McG of H will correct me if I'm wrong, but was the show cancelled to be shown at a later date until some censors/politicians saw it.
Did the RTE networks put off showing it also, anyway my point is the show stirred it up a bit because of the way it portrayed certain events.
Kat did you see the part were the male members of a Belfast family was shot by the police? I forget the inspectors name, but he was a real character famed for his brutality. Maybe it was these type of scenes which annoyed the unionist crowd.
If it is based on true events then I believe film makers have an obligation to portray such actions,no matter how uncomfortable it makes us feel. To put it bluntly I think the unionists did not like some home truths.
Mc G of H is right to an extent,I thought the show was too long and given the time that was dedicated to it, yes it could well have addressed all side's.
I wish some one would bring out a film about the Boyne and how the Pope supported William, king Billy, it would bring such anomalies to light and maybe educate some of our bigots, but that's a different topic.
