Massacre at Ballymurphy C4, 8pm
IT is a massacre that few have heard of, yet the tragic Ballymurphy shootings was one of the most significant events of the Troubles. This new documentary from award-winning director Callum Macrae reflects on the day in August 1971 when 11 innocent people were killed by the army on a Catholic estate in west Belfast. The British military has always maintained that the paratroopers were fired on first by IRA gunmen but this investigation suggests that may not have been the case, and chronicles the fight by the victims’ relatives and survivors to discover the truth.
