Policing has always been the hardest nut to crack in the Northern IRELAND peace process. But getting Republicans to give their support to what used to be seen as a Protestant militia, never mind join up in large numbers, is vital to creating a new society. Award-winning broadcaster Peter Taylor gets unprecedented access to the new reformed Police Service of Northern IRELAND and its young Catholic recruits. He investigates whether the police are finally winning over the UK's most hostile neighbourhoods, without alienating the Protestants who used to see the police force as theirs. / Policing has always been the hardest nut to crack in the Northern IRELAND peace process.
