From the BBC Web Site: "In February this year, the RUC's biggest ever investigation into internal corruption within its own ranks reached a climax with the imprisonment of Inspector Derek Robinson. To trap him, some of the RUC's most senior detectives used the sort of covert intelligence-gathering methods normally used to catch paramilitary activists or major league criminals. They found that for a seemingly respectable, hard-working and efficient police officer, he was keeping the most dubious and ill-advised company. Spotlight reporter Yvette Shapiro reveals the evidence used by the RUC to bring one of its own men to justice."

Polls Apart
Description:
The rise of Sinn Fein, will it be poised to be in the government in the Republic of Ireland after the next election. Comments from D.O'Malley, Pat Ribbite, F.O'Tode and the Minister for Justice, O'Donoghue. Sinn Fein now has four MPs, and two Ministers in the Northern Executive, without discarding the IRA, this programme asks will it be able to do the same in the Republic. ( ... ENTRY TO BE COMPLETED)

From the BBC Web site: "After greatly increasing its vote in the general and council elections, Sinn Fein is now the largest nationalist party in Northern Ireland. It has the potential to become the first all-Ireland party with real political power since the Act of Union. It entered government in Northern Ireland without shedding its paramilitary links. So-called punishment beatings are carried out by terrorist groups from both communities but a 40% increase in republican attacks has apparently not affected Sinn Fein's vote.
