In this episode the lads are joined by Robert Gibson. Robert’s father Jackie was a bus driver who was killed on Bloody Friday, 21 July 1972 when the Provisional IRA set off a series of bombs across Belfast. He talks about the effect that his father’s murder had on his family, his search for the truth about what happened in Belfast on that notorious day and how difficult it is for families of those murdered during the Troubles to get clarity on the circumstances around their loved ones’ deaths.
