Five-part series tracing the transformation of Belfast from a city under siege to a popular tourist destination
5x 15mins, by Yamal Productions, first aired December 2022
In November 2021 Belfast was named Ireland’s first UNESCO City of Music – a huge achievement and accolade for a city once synonymous with sectarian violence and division. The award marked another step in the rebirth of the city.
This five-part series traces the transformation of Belfast from a city under siege to a popular tourist destination, a location for international film production and a growing hi-tech industry centre with a thriving entertainment scene and a vibrant nightlife. It also examines the “ripple effect” – how Belfast’s success is creating opportunities for other parts of Northern Ireland.
