Description
Maggie Shiels interviews Father Paddy Smith of the Irish Commission for Prisoners who has supported the families in their fight to have the Guildford Four freed. He says he is delighted with the judgement handed down today that their convictions can no longer be sustained for IRA pub bombings in 1974. He says other cases such as the Birmingham Six must now be reconsidered.
