Introduction by Peter
Johnston, Head Of Broadcasting for BBC Northern Ireland
This preview picks out some of the highlights for the coming months
on BBC ONE NI, BBC TWO NI and BBC Radio Ulster/Foyle.
It shows a real range of programmes for audiences in Northern Ireland
and significant contributions from here for the network channels such
as Battlefield Britain, British
Isles: A Natural History, The Culture
Show and Messiah III.
It also gives a full line-up of our new Saturday schedule on BBC Radio
Ulster with The Saturday Magazine
and The John Daly Radio Show joining
regular favourites Your Place And Mine,
Gardeners' Corner and On
In the last year, BBC NI has won five out of the six RTS regional categories,
worldwide acclaim for the drama Holy Cross and Radio Foyle was named
as Sony Station of the Year.
BBC Radio Ulster/ Foyle reached record levels of listening for the
first part of this year, coinciding with our most ambitious project
ever in Northern Ireland, BBC Music Live.
I would like to thank all our programme makers, presenters and, most
importantly, the viewers and listeners in Northern Ireland.
I hope you enjoy our new programmes for the autumn and winter.
