  • can anyone identify this BBC film for me

    It waas either a Screen One or Screen Two film. It was set in Norther Ireland during The Troubles, & was about a little girl with a talent for playing the piano accordian who wanted to play her party piece (a sectarian tune) in a competition. I forget the finer points, but the ended up playing the piece in a hall full of people of the opposite religious persuasion. Any ideas please?

    Could it be this - Screen Two production called Henri?:

      Sounds possible. Bits of it are coming back to me & I think the little girl was delivered to the venue by the army. Thanks for the prompt response. Now all I have to do is trrack down a copy of a 23 year old film!

        I wonder what the sectarian tune was.

          I can't even recall how it went. Usually when you heard it, it was during a parade played on a whistle.

            I found out a bit more about it on the BBC Genome website (an excellent resource)
