Reporting the Troubles: Journalists tell their stories of the Northern Ireland conflict

by Deric Henderson and Ivan Little - £14.99  Colourpoint Books (Blackstaff Press Ltd) (2018)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780731797 | ISBN 10: 1780731795

In Reporting the Troubles sixty-eight renowned journalists tell their stories of working in Northern Ireland during the Troubles the victims that they have never forgotten, the events that have never left them, and the lasting impact of the experience of working through those years.
 
The result is a compelling account of one of the most turbulent periods in recent history, told by the journalists who reported on it. Beginning in 1968 with an eyewitness report of the day that civil rights protestors clashed with the police in Derry, the journalists give candid accounts of the years that followed arriving on the scene of major atrocities; knocking on the doors of bereaved relatives; maintaining objectivity in the face of threats from paramilitaries and pressure from the state; and always the absolute commitment to telling the truth.
 
This is a landmark book a history of the Troubles told by the journalists who were on the ground from the beginning and including many of the biggest names in journalism from the last fifty years. Reporting the Troubles is a remarkable act of remembrance that is raw, thought provoking and profoundly moving.
