The Troubles

Have you ever wondered what caused all the violence and anger in Northern Ireland between 1966 and 1999 and how it could ever have ended? In this animated, educational movie, Tim and Moby explain the history behind the Troubles between the Protestants and Catholics. You’ll learn about who was involved: who the Orangemen and Provos were; and what the UVF, RUC and IRA were each fighting for. Discover how Maireed Corrigan and Betty Williams founded the Community of Peace People; how their tireless efforts won them the Nobel Peace Prize; and how finally, after 33 years of bitter conflict and atrocities, the Good Friday Agreement was eventually signed. Let’s not have any more trouble!
