Eamonn Deane & Terry Doherty

Video characteristics

The tape consisted of a sitting Eamonn Deane and Terry Doherty where the camera was only on them. When one of them got talking, the camera would move in to just one of them, but for the most part, it was a shot that encompassed Eamonn and Terry sitting behind a table. The video quality was good, but the audio was horrific. Throughout the tape there was about a 10 second audio delay which was very annoying. Also the camera or another machine was making noises for the entire interview and the two men had very thick accents. On top of this, there would be no audio for split seconds which was challenging to hear coupled with the audio delay. So the audio was bad, but the rest of the video was of a good quality.

Description

The two men are interviewed by one woman and are asked primarily about their jobs. The video starts out with the interviewer asking the men what their jobs are and if they enjoy them. They say they do, but funding is difficult. They are asked how they got into what they're currently doing and why they work specifically with youth. The men convey their experiences on the job as satisfying but dangerous. Eamonn and Terry go in depth into their bloody encounters and the things other children have seen. They elaborate on how they empathize with some people and how they chose to do what they are currently doing instead of joining a paramilitary. The rest of the video is comprised of their thoughts on the peace process.
