Docs Ireland 2023: Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland

1:30 PM 24th June 2023 Ulster Museum

Docs Ireland 2023 presents a screening of an episode of Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland (2023), a new BBC series on The Troubles, followed by a panel discussion.

Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland gives a voice to the people who lived through Northern Ireland’s violent past by sharing intimate, unheard testimonies from all sides of the confict. This brand new series from the BBC comes from award-winning director James Bluemel and the team behind the BAFTA and Emmy Award-winning series Once Upon a Time in Iraq. We will screen one of the episodes, which will then be followed by a panel discussion on the documentary series and how it was made.

Eddie Doyle, Head of Commissioning, BBC Northern Ireland, says: “This extensive series puts a fresh lens on the legacies and events of The Troubles. James Bluemel has approached the stories featured with great care and made a series that is both considered and compelling. With the 25th anniversary of the Belfast / Good Friday Agreement, it is a timely and important addition to other BBC programming on The Troubles.”
