The Northern Ireland Archives: Endgame?

Panorama has reported from Northern Ireland from the early days of the civil rights movement in 1968, through over 30 years of the Troubles to the more peaceful situation of today.

You can watch abridged moments from one of those films below.

In June 1988, almost three years on from the Anglo-Irish Agreement, Panorama reported on its impact and the still-entrenched prospects for a political settlement in Northern Ireland

Despite the Anglo-Irish Agreement which allowed the Irish Republic a consultative role in Northern Ireland in 1985 the violence continued.

In June 1988, almost three years on from the Anglo-Irish Agreement, Panorama reported on its impact and the still-entrenched prospects for a political settlement in Northern Ireland.

When three IRA bombers were killed in Gibraltar by the SAS in 1988, their funerals, at the Milltown Cemetery, became the site of an extraordinary attack on republican mourners by loyalist Michael Stone.

Four days later, in another televised incident, two soldiers in civilian clothes drove into the funeral cortege of one of the IRA men killed by Stone. They were then abducted, beaten, stripped and shot dead.

Stone was released from jail in 2000, but six years later, after storming the Northern Ireland Parliament building at Stormant, he was charged with the attempted murder of Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness - both members of Sinn Fein.
