bbc bookIt is hard to convey to people in the second decade of the twenty-first century, many of whom have no memory of the daily murder and mayhem that was Northern Ireland in the 1970s and 1980s, just how hugely disruptive events in the region were to the national politics of both the UK and the Republic of Ireland in that period, and how vital it was that they were reported and analysed fully and fairly, according to the Dublin Review of Books, which praises Professor of the Practice of History Robert Savage‘s new book, The BBC’s ‘Irish Troubles’: Television, Conflict and Northern Ireland (Manchester University Press, 2015). The review calls the book “meticulously researched.” Read the review. | The Guardian also praises the book in its review.
