The recent death of Nobel prize-winning, John Hume, brought many reminders of the tireless, quietly heroic endeavours by this Derry nationalist to create the foundations that lead to the Good Friday Agreement and cessation of violence.


This compelling documentary, narrated by Liam Neeson, focuses on Hume’s work in the US, where he galvanised support among the Irish American community in Washington, which he believed would influence peace-making in Northern Ireland. Inspired by Martin Luther King, Hume’s courage and charisma drove the campaign that he would ultimately see bear fruit.


An informative companion piece to Leaving Certificate Topic, Politics and Society in Northern Ireland 1949-93.
