On ‘Your Place and Mine’ we take pride in our sense of humour and being able to laugh at ourselves. While we appreciate the serious side of life in Northern Ireland, we always like to make you smile with stories of the weird, wonderful and quirky.

Michael chats to Laura DavisIn the past we have talked to, or about, talking parrots, world whistling champions, totem pole designers, female undertakers, retiring barbers, clan gatherings, remote control church organs, skittle competitions, storytelling festivals, new arts centres and a mobile solar washeteria!!!

Your Place and Mine is unique in that our team of seven reporters come from different backgrounds and professions but are united in the quest to bring listeners stories of local people and local concerns.

Recently Michael and his team interviewed some of the staff from the North East Institute (formerly the Ballymena Municipal Technical College) on its centenary. These are some of the photos that were snapped on their visit.
Group shot

All twelve reporters live or work in the towns that they report from - Ballymena, Coleraine, Dungannon, Enniskillen, Magherafelt, Newry and Omagh - and have become known as the BBC representative there.
