Transmitted: Sunday 18 November Time: 7.30 – 8.00pm Title: Trusadh – Faslane @ 30 Faslane Peace Camp is a collection of caravans by the main road outside Helensburgh. It has been occupied as a permanent place of protest since 1982, just a stone's throw from HMNB Clyde - where the UK's nuclear arsenal is maintained. During the summer of 2012 the residents planned 30 Days of Action, to mark the camp's 30 year anniversary. Protests, picnics and politics abound as the campers make themselves heard afresh to the powers that be. The residents of the camp and affiliated groups have devoted their lives to raising the alarm on the Trident missile system, and want to use the 30 days to stoke the national debate on why it is there. But the Trident issue is not easily solved. Although the pro-Trident UK Government continues to back it, new tensions are arising with the devolved Scottish anti-nuclear administration. Faslane - 30 Years of Action is the story of a peace camp, its people and the politics that have entrenched the issue in the UK from WII to the present.
