Video characteristics

This single tape is a combination of three single tapes shot of this single two-hour talk. Fraser stands behind a lectern with the shot of the upper half of his body. Lighting and sound are good although it is easier to understand the talk if one reads along in the transcript of the talk.

Description

Fraser gives a history of Northern Ireland, the geopolitics of Northern Ireland's geographic and political relationship to the United Kingdom, and the historic relationships between Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, and England and also the historic relationship between Catholics and Protestants. This lecture is meant to take students up to the beginning of the Civil Rights Movement and the period of the Troubles, which began in 1968. History from that time point forward is given on the Paul Arthur tapes available elsewhere in this archive.
