Upcoming Workshops with Filmmaker Gerry Gregg

‘Blood on the Lens‘

1 "The Crown v. John Adair" on Loyalism, how a threat was counteracted, and how a few people can destabilise a divided society.


In 2001 a police source said: "To portray any of these paramilitaries as having some deep-seated ideology is total rubbish. This is about drugs, money, territory and power." The Gerry Gregg film, ‘The Crown V John Adair’ examines the emergence of Johnny Adair as a notorious Loyalist terrorist.

This programme deals with the method used by the RUC to gather the evidence that convicted Johnny Adair (UDA, West Belfast) of directing terrorism, it also profiles the years in which he presided over the 'C' (UDA) company.
