In this final episode of the series, reporter Darragh MacIntyre hears the inside story of the peace process from within the IRA and the British government.
He discovers new information about the internal battle for control of the IRA during the most delicate days of the peace process and learns about the scale of secrecy that still surrounds the conflict.
