(Studio: Hilary Bowker) The background to "the troubles" in Ireland briefly reviewed. Interview held with former Senator George Mitchell, presidential adviser on Ireland, who heads an independent commission, about the disarmament issue. [MITCHELL - talks about British Prime Minister John Major's suggestion of elections in Northern Ireland to choose the people who will talk peace; says "mind sets" need to be decommissioned, as well as arms; outlines the need for a democratic process to move away from violence; explains why the election issue is beyond the scope of his group; believes there is an overwhelming desire for peace in Northern Ireland, where the people want the silence of the guns to continue.]
