Endgame in Ireland - Miniseries, Episode 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Talking to Terrorists


Episode Info

In November 1990 John Major became Prime Minister and within months survived a daring IRA mortar attack at 10 Downing Street. But this wasn't the only message he received. While publicly the British government refused to talk to terrorists until the violence stopped, behind the scenes top-secret negotiations between the Republican movement and Her Majesty's Government began. Meanwhile, in private, John Hume and Gerry Adams discussed their idea for the British and Irish governments to issue a declaration of principals, which might lead to an end to violence.
