The Wall of a Million Bricks

Saturday 15 March 2008 22:00-22:30 (Radio 3)

In September 1969, Lieutenant-General Sir Ian Freeland, the most senior figure of the British Forces in Northern Ireland, said that peace lines - solid walls separating communities - would be a temporary affair. Today, despite relative harmony in Northern Ireland, there are over 40 peace lines keeping Catholic and Protestant neighbourhoods apart. Belfast-born DJ and film composer David Holmes weaves a soundtrack through stories told by people on both sides of the ever-continuing divide.
