The Story of my life: Peter Woods
peterwoods.jpg

I grew up along the border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland at a time when what we, a nation of euphemists, call?’The Troubles’ were just beginning.
Our house was intensely political and my earliest memories are of arguments about politics.
With the backdrop of what was happening a few kilometres away it felt ‘for more than thirty years of my life’ as if there were always a radio on in the next room.
What those years gave me was a feeling that history was a live thing and was going on all about us.

Despite what was happening up the road, where I grew up was intensely quiet and rural.
All I wanted to be was a writer so I set out and went the long way about it.

Of course this was all before the Ireland of today ‘Celtic Tiger Ireland’.
The era I grew up was a time of respite but was book-ended by emigration on a vast scale.
I too left for London when I was 17, as much from curiosity as from anything else. I wanted to escape.

London then was about ‘Punk Rock’, about race roots and unemployment and ‘the Winter of Discontent’ and the rise of Margaret Thatcher.
Later there would be the Falklands War and Miners Strike and all the while that radio playing, persistently, in the next room: Hunger Strikes, sectarian killings.
Murders in places like Teebane Cross and Loughinisland, places like the place I came from.
As if history would never end. Perhaps that why I liked punk music because it attempted to put a stop to history, if only briefly.
It left me with an aversion to classic rock stations where eventually punk was written out of the same history, apart, perhaps as a soundtrack for the odd advertisement for jeans.
In other words I was picking up an attitude.

I worked at a variety of jobs with the homeless, as a computer programmer very briefly then a pub manager and for a long period as a construction worker.
I always listened to radio, wrote stories and, eventually, one half-good poem.
I travelled, mostly alone, across Europe and North Africa, living for periods of time in Germany and Israel.

For most Irish people emigration or exile is one part reality and the rest a metaphysical condition: metaphysical because home, as we refer to it, is always in Ireland.
This is as true for the most recent emigrant as it is for, say, a couple in their 80s living in the South Bronx.
I too talked about going home but there was something of an ideal in this longing, something of the next year in Jerusalem.

In 1995 I got married, my first child was due to be born and I returned to live In Dublin. I began to write and made a tentative living as a freelance journalist.
In 1998, with the help of Lorelei Harris, I started making radio documentaries.
On the back of one of those and in retrospect a very good interview I got a place on RTE’s radio producer course.
I worked for the next four years in current affairs, for much of it on the station flagship evening programme where I eventually became the series producer.
I’ve been back making documentaries since early last year and am the series producer of The Documentary on One.

I eventually wrote a book and then another one.
Both were, as we say, critically well received even though neither made a lot of money.
I am rumoured to be working on a third.
I am, as I said, married and have three children.
These days the radio in the next room is, for the most part, remarkably quiet at least as far as what’s happening up the road is concerned.
