New Archive Programme Recalls The Heady Days
BBC NI show brings together archive footage and interviews to show Northern Ireland in a new light
Martin was overwhelmed by the footage found in the BBC archive. ‘Our archivist, Evan Marshall spent three months in the BBC archives viewing material. It was a very rewarding process. We found footage of everything from a young Liam Neeson to potato rustling, from Concorde to Billy Connolly.
‘What we realised looking at all this archive is not only has Northern Ireland completely transformed in the past few decades, but also that they make beautiful and better television in the past. This is film archive to savour.’
