Age of Terror: Episode Two preview

In his epic new series, the Age of Terror, award-winning journalist Peter Taylor traces the modern history and development of terrorism through four major acts of terror over the last 30 years.

PROGRAMME DETAILS
Age of Terror: 10 Days of Terror was broadcast on BBC Two at 9pm on 22 April

In the second programme, Peter Taylor explores the dramatic events of 10 days in 1987.

A boat carrying a massive cargo of Libyan arms bound for Ireland is intercepted in French waters.

Under questioning, the skipper of The Eksund reveals vital information about the IRA's secret arsenal, which rocks the British government.

In the same week, the IRA is preparing to bomb a Remembrance Day service in the border town of Enniskillen. This attack will shake the IRA to its core.

These two extraordinary events would lead to a transformation of the political landscape in Northern Ireland.
