Bobby Sands 66 Days: Where are the films of terrorist atrocities? Asks William Frazer

Victims' campaigner William Frazer has asked where the films are of terrorist atrocities in response to the release of the latest film on IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands.

66 Days is a cinematic portrait of Sands' fast at the height of the Troubles in 1981.

Unionists have been angered that public money has been used to fund the documentary.

In his take, victims' campaigner William Frazer asked when films would be made about terrorist atrocities in Northern Ireland.

"Let's see these films," he said in a video on Facebook.

"Let's see the films of the Kingsmills massacre, of the butchery of the Protestant people of south Armagh. Where are these films

"Where's the film about the Shankill bomb? La Mon? Londonderry? Bloody Friday? Where are these films?

"They are not there as they don't glorify terrorism.

"This is glorifying murderers. You can paint it whatever way you want, but that's what it is.

"And shame on those that have produced this."
