I remember the start of the 'troubles' I was quite young but did not know about the civil rights marches. http://canvas-story.bbcrewind.co.uk/sites/usatc/

So little about the history of northern ireland gets taught in English schools.
Very little mention is made of the bombing attacks against southern ireland by loyalist terrorist paramilitaries based in northern ireland.
In England the media and political focus was almost entirely on the republican nationalist terrorist paramilitaries that targeted London during the troubles.

I find that so odd that you remember the start of The Troubles but didn't know about the marches...

Does it? :laugh: dont think my history class got the memo. Northern Ireland was a massive part of one of my history A-level modules (the making of modern britain 1951-2007). The old spec (year before me) had an entire year on northern ireland. Glad i wasnt that year find the whole NI thing so boring and tedious but each to their own

I was 11 years old ! I remember the Aberfan disaster as I was sick at home and was 9 years old but did not understand the politics etc around that either. I think I was 7 when Winston Churchill's state funeral was on tv and thought it was soo boring.
