Violence in Northern Ireland

Listen in pop-out player

Northern Ireland has been plunged back into violence through the activities of dissident Republicans. Linda Pressly visits Catholic communities to investigate the impact of the violence, and to assess the reasons for it.

She reports on how community leaders are trying to keep young people out of the clutches of the paramilitaries, and discovers an increase in so-called punishment shootings - which most people had hoped were a relic of the past.

Including an interview with the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Northern Ireland, Sir Hugh Orde.
