Radio City – Late Night City Broadcast Recording

March 15, 2013 | Nick Taylor

Radio City 96.7 (*) and the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace presents

Moving On..a radio event for young people

Monday, 18 March 2013 from 16:00 to 20:00 (GMT)

The Peace Centre, Warrington, United Kingdom

It is twenty years since the Warrington bombing, a major incident that happened as part of a long conflict within our country that led some people to take violent action.  For many young people the ethnic, political and religious differences that led to prejudice, discrimination and violence are now something taught in history lessons.  Such conflict is a thing of the past and we live in a far more progressive and peaceful society.

Or do we?  Have we learned the lessons of the past or are we still making the same mistakes?

In this recording of ‘Late Night City’ Pete Price will host a gathering of young people from England and Northern Ireland who will join with an expert panel to consider how the world has moved on since the Warrington bombing. Is the ‘world’ a more peaceful place, why did the Warrington bombing happen and have we learnt the lessons to stop such incidents happening again, how do we tackle racial, political and religious conflict and respect individual identities.  What can we do to move on and what about those who have been affected by conflict, can they forgive and can they move on?

This is a chance for young people to have their voices heard, to make a difference and take positive action to ensure what happened in Warrington never happens again and that we are all…Moving On!

(*) This is a radio broadcast recorded by Bauer Media for broadcast on Radio City and other radio stations and associated media such as the internet.  All people participating must be willing to attend an event that will be recorded and broadcast and may be filmed and photographed.  There is an age restriction of 14-25 for this event.
