Northern Ireland Screen’s Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund three-part series, Imagining Ulster, airs Sunday 1st March at 9:45pm on BBC2NI.
Presenter William Crawley explores some of the social, cultural and political influences that have shaped aspects of identity in Northern Ireland. He looks at how Ulster has been a meeting place between different traditions and the impact of its close connections with Scotland.
Imagining Ulster is an epic four hundred year journey, as Crawley helps the audience to understand the complexities of their past and how all of this might help them to think differently about the present.
“For that reason, disputes about “identity” have re-emerged as we try to find or reassert our place. That’s why this series is so timely, for me as much as anyone else: this is a chance to gain some historical perspective, to recognise that change is nothing new, and to realise anew that identity has always been a journey in itself.” – William Crawley
Imagining Ulster is a Below The Radar TV production and received funding from Northern Ireland Screen’s Ulster-Scots Broadcast Fund.
