On Saturday 2nd February the Opera live from the MET overran by quarter of an hour and consequently the advertised edition of Between the Ears was not broadcast.
This edition of Between the Ears has been rescheduled for Saturday 15/03/08, 22:00-22:30.
Details of scheduled programme:
In September 1969, Lieutenant-General Sir Ian Freeland, the most senior figure of the British Forces in Northern Ireland, said that peace lines - solid walls separating communities - would be a temporary affair. Today, despite relative harmony in Northern Ireland, there are over 40 peace lines keeping Catholic and Protestant neighbourhoods apart. Belfast-born DJ and film composer David Holmes weaves a soundtrack through stories told by people on both sides of the ever-continuing divide.
