The Story of Publishing in Northern Ireland
The printing press came late to the north of Ireland in 1697, well after it had arrived in Europe and other parts of Ireland. But, in the 20th-century, Northern

The Arts and Identity
The deep political divisions within the society it serves create potential conflicts of identity for the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. Its promotion of 'traditional' art may disturb Loyalist sensibilities. Can its community arts activities transcend sectarian feelings, and can an arts festival in a predominantly nationalist area really be'Art for All'?
Seamus McKee examines how the Belfast-based Arts Council approaches these dilemmas. Producer CHRIS SPURR BBC Northern Ireland
