"A film about gerrymander and discrimination, including an interview with former leader of the Nationalist party in Northern Ireland - Eddie McAteer. This film was not shown at the time (1964) because Terence O'Neill and Sean Lemass met for the first time - and it was felt impolitic to show a programme that might have embarrassed the Northern premier."
