Widgery: “Where is your patriotism…”

Great programme on Jimmy Porter’s tapes of army and police conversations made during the shooting on Bloody Sunday in Derry in 1972… Most astonishing is the confrontation with Lord Widgery who warns him he has made powerful enemies and that he should destroy the tapes… He got them out across the border and kept until they appeared at the Saville Inquiry… It’s just finishing on Radio Ulster now, and should be online shortly…
