Days of Terror: Episode 395. Part 2/2

Jun 11, 07:59 PM

This is part two of a two part series, so I strongly recommend you listen to part one.

This episode, from Northern Ireland, looks at events near Portadown during the period of just a few days at the height of the Troubles. Today the focus is on the quite dreadful Kingsmill Massacre which claimed the life of 10 innocent men.
