Days of Terror: Episode 394. Part 1/2

Jun 08, 05:46 PM

This episode, from Northern Ireland, looks at events near Portadown during the period of just a few days at the height of the Troubles. Three terrorist attacks saw nine innocent civilians killed in a series of revenge attacks at the Central Bar in Gilford and at the homes of the Reavey & O'Dowd families.

And as we will see in the second part of the story (released on Tuesday 11 June) the violence still wasn't over.
