Battle of the Bogside

Battle of the Bogside

On 12 August 1969, the disaffected Catholic and Nationalist population in the Bogside area of Derry, Northern Ireland took to the streets to confront the Royal Ulster Constabulary, in the wake of a protestant Apprentice Boys parade in the City. The riots, which came to be known as the 'Battle of the Bogside', continued for almost 3 days and saw over 1,000 people injured. Battle of the Bogside takes us behind the barricades, into Stormont and Westminster, to reveal the inside stories surrounding the Battle and the political response to it.
