Summary

Part one of two. Documentary exploring the strange political goings-on of 1982, which led to the arrest of a double murderer at the home of the Attorney General. What began as an attempt by party malcontents to overthrow Taoiseach Charles Haughey, ended with the widespread tapping of journalists' phones, wholesale resignations and the unlikely arrest at the home of the country's most senior legal officer, prompting Haughey to describe the events as `grotesque, unbelievable, bizarre and unprecedented'.
