As BBC NI launches its Ulster-Scots and Irish language collections on the iPlayer, William Crawley chairs a discussion on the challenges and opportunities for programme makers who have been producing BBC content since the advent of NI Screen’s Ulster-Scots Broadcast fund in 2011. We will also hear from Fiona Keane, BBC NI Commissioning Executive and BBC Scotland’s David Harron about recent Ulster-Scots co-productions and the potential for future collaboration with BBC Scotland. The discussion will be followed by a chance to chat over a glass of wine.
