Battle Of The Bogside

  • slideshow_large

Lorcan Doherty, Vinny Cunningham

Synopsis

On 12 August 1969, the disaffected Catholic population of the Bogside district of Derry, Northern Ireland, took to the streets in the wake of a Protestant Apprentice Boys parade in the city. The riots continued for three days and ended when British troops were deployed, a decision that was to shape the future of Northern Ireland for over thirty years. This film takes us ‘behind the barricades’ on both sides to reveal the inside stories surrounding the battle.
