In the first years of this Century, history was made in the back seat of car when Tony Blair invited the Ulster Unionist leader Ian Paisley and former IRA commander Martin McGuinness to Scotland. It wasn't the meetings at the conference table that brought the two men together, however, but the ride to and from the airport, at least as Nick Hamm's film would have it. An hour with no leg room and close proximity to the archenemy. Who wouldn't be ready to make Peace at some point?
