Belfast - No Way Out

What was life really like in 1970s Belfast? Beyond the Troubles, This Week talks to people in poverty struggling to cope in the city.

Current affairs 1970 27 mins


Rows of red brick terraced houses, streets filled with children playing, hide lives of hardship in this programme focussing on the poverty and housing conditions in Belfast - often underreported due to the Troubles. Typically for This Week, the programme addresses social problems instead of superficial prejudices, and the result is a heartbreaking portrait of people struggling to survive.
