A PDA Running the Ghosts of Nendrum Media Scape

Go Outside & Explore

Relive history where it happened! Go on location with our GPS learning journeys and take an atmospheric journey into the past.

BBC NI have created three interactive mobile activities (Mediascapes) that can be experienced on location at Nendrum Monastery, Custom House Square in Belfast and aroung the walls of Londonderry.

These activities provide a fun way for small groups to explore the history of a location. Devices are normally available to hire, for free, from the BBC - however for technical reasons the PDAs for our mediascapes are not available at present.
