It wasn't a show aimed at RA nerds who've read every book there is to read on the troubles.
I thought the content was fantastic, it was really well put together and should be compulsory viewing for all school kids North and South of the border for fear any get the mad notion to return to those dark days under the pretence of a United Ireland or to secure the Union status.
How little value they placed on life at the time was deeply unsettling and this show was a stark reminder of the truly dark days.
