BBC NI Series: Written in Stone - Starts Sun 24 Feb

A new BBC Northern Ireland series by Dan Cruickshank 'Written in Stone' will explore local architectural heritage. The four-part series, produced by DoubleBand Films will air on BBC One Northern Ireland on Sunday, February 24 at 6.05pm. 


Written in Stone explores what buildings can tell us about community history and diversity. It captures the stories of buildings big and small and describes the many influences which have shaped Ulster architecture.

The series ranges across time and different locations, providing a fresh view of many familiar buildings and uncovering some hidden delights.

Programme one explores how invasion and conflict shaped the landscape of Ulster up until the end of the 17th Century; programme two looks at the rise of the country house in 18th Century Ulster; programme three features local churches and the final programme is about 19th century industrial heritage.
