Northern Ireland, December 1956: The IRA launch a border campaign (Operation Harvest) from the south with the aim of overthrowing the Northern State and creating a United Ireland. PJ McClean is one of the first 32 men arrested in an attempt to curtail insurgent activity. He is not a member of the IRA nor is he accused of being one. However, the Northern Irish Government hold him for almost 4 years in Crumlin Road Prison, Belfast.

"For the Record" tells his story some 50 years later.
