  1. Greg, at last I have had an opportunity to review your take on the place I call home, Northern Ireland to which you returned to take stock after almost thirty years.

    It is only right I confess my central involvement as an interviewee but I will leave it to others to evaluate what I regard as the integrity of your report on life today in Northern Ireland. As someone who has worked this patch for over thirty five years I can say I have not spotted any flaws in your contribution. It is packed with understandable information and does not take risks with truth. Hank Bargine has shot the many Belfast scenes with absolute sensitivity. Producer Kathleen Holmlund can be rightly proud of this opus.
