Jazz Dispute by Jeremiah McDonald

Germ, the international viral awards established in 2005 and set up by Channel 4’s 4Talent in conjunction with BoreMe.com – is soon to announce the winners of this year’s competition to unearth the best virals.

There are three categories: Best Video Viral; Best Image Viral; and Best Interactive Viral. A judging panel, which included CR’s Gavin Lucas, whittled down entries to each category to a shortlist of three (The film, Jazz Dispute, shown above is one of the three shortlisted in the video category). The public decides the winner – and voting ends tomorrow so have a squiz here and vote for your favourites.

Behind The Barricades

Golf Five Zero watchtower (known to the British Army as Borucki Sanger), Crossmaglen Security Force Base, South Armagh. Photographed by Jonathan Olley, 1999

It’s been a historic week for Northern Ireland. Past enmities have been buried (we hope) as the power-sharing legislative assembly has finally been reconvened.
The evidence of past conflict is slowly being tidied away. Those famous territory-marking murals are being painted over. The British Army has long since begun to dismantle the physical evidence of its controversial presence. But not everyone wants to forget. Some argue that both the murals and the armoured observation posts that loomed over the province should be preserved as a warning from history.
