This one-hour documentary profiles Martin McGuinness, the former Irish Republican Army commander who is now Northern Ireland's Minister of Education. CNN's Nic Robertson creates a primer on the bloody conflict between Catholics and Protestants and brings the story back into view at a critical moment in the peace effort. With exceptionally close access to McGuinness and those who know his past, Robertson reveals the contradictions in McGuinness' life that make him both an ideal peacemaker to the Catholics and a Trojan horse to the Protestants. CNN breaks its own mold by stepping back from breaking news for this valuable perspective.

CNN Productions, Nic Robertson, senior correspondent; Jonathan Miller, producer/director; Vivian Schiller, executive producer.
