    They come from different cultures and different parts of the world, but what is it about the North West that keeps outsiders here? The blow-ins tell us how the natives have received them, what they think of them and whether this society ever really lets them in.

  6. A Question of Identity cdoubleFriday 3rd January 10.03 - 10.30 am

    The Derry-Donegal border divides the Northwest of Ireland into two states - Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Two different currencies, two different governments - many different identities. Paul Moore delves into the complex question of how the people who live along the border see themselves - British, Irish or hybrids.
