: The British Connection?: Crossmaglen

Twelve films from different parts of the UK which explore people's sense of identity.
Crossmaglen in South Armagh, on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, has traditionally been famous for two things: the quality of its store cattle, and the buccaneering nature of its inhabitants. Since about 1969 it has acquired a new reputation as a stronghold of Irish Republicanism, and the British Army is a constant presence in the town. But this is not a film about the troubles, but about how Crossmaglen sees itself. It's a place of Gaelic football fanaticism, endless talk and a strong sense of its Irishness.


Producer: Nuala O'Faolain

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
