Chronicles of Long Kesh tells the story of Long Kesh/The Maze from its opening in 1971 to the day it closed in July 2000 as a result of the Good Friday Agreement. Whilst dealing with all the major events at the prison such as the 1974 burning of the camp, the Dirty Protest, The Hunger Strike and The Great Escape, Chronicles of Long Kesh also explores individual experiences of the inmates. Who were these people? What kind of impact did imprisonment have on their lives and that of their families? And what kind of impact did it have on the prison officers?
