On the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, Peter Taylor will talk about his book, Operation Chiffon, about the top-secret intelligence operation that helped bring peace to Ireland.
Peter Taylor is one of the BBC's most distinguished and respected journalists, best known for his coverage of the Irish conflict and political violence over the past 50 years. Peter has written ten books, nine of them related to Northern Ireland, terrorism and political violence and one on the politics of tobacco. His Bloomsbury trilogy, Provos, Loyalists and Brits is recognised to be a definitive history of the conflict. Operation Chiffon now completes the picture and makes the trilogy a unique quartet.
