Investigative journalism at its best
2 November 2019 | by carokaliSee all my reviews

Spotlight on the Troubles: A Secret History, goes the extra mile to serve the public in its search for truth about the thirty years of conflict in Northern Ireland, ending, officially anyway, with the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

The journalists unearth new information on both sides of the divide. They earn the trust of both victims and perpetrators. They get out of the way of agents and viewers to aid recognition of the turmoil that rocked the region and the enormity of involvement by special powerful interests.

This excellent series should compel a number of additional loose threads to be tied up. This Spotlight team are professional and courageous as can be. Brilliant.
