The Peace Makers

Description

This film explores the untold story of how the power-sharing political transformation in Northern Ireland was partly the result of decades of work by teachers in Ulster's schools.

Former enemies Ian Paisley and Martin McGuinness together took charge of the country, but teachers on the front line in two of the worst trouble spots have defied death threats and intimidation to tackle sectarian hatred head on.

They have worked with pupils and parents across the divide, bringing together parents and grandparents who bear the emotional scars of the troubles to unpick the myths of streetlore, even in sensitive subjects such as their own recent history.
