Collusion - the IRA Against the British Army

Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
A groundbreaking documentary exposing the extent of collusion between Loyalist paramilitaries and the British security forces in Northern Ireland during ’the Troubles’.. Supported by archive evidence and interviews with senior Irish and British officials of the period, this film reveals that the British Army decided early on to concentrate its efforts on “destroying” the Provisional IRA.. Such was the extent of collusion in the eighties, that a Special Branch officer tipped off paramilitaries about an informer. It could easily have led to the man’s murder. Even as late as 2003, six years after the Good Friday Agreement, when a former Police Ombudsman began to investigate new murders involving collusion, senior British Government officials tried to put pressure on the investigation. It eventually uncovered truly shocking levels of collusion between police officers and paramilitary killers.. The film will also reveal that a new collusion investigation has been launched into 19 other linked killings and a former British security minister admits that the scale of collusion was much greater than he imagined..
