A 3-part series which chronicles the 150-year history of Harland & Wolff and the global influence of their work.
Once the greatest shipbuilders in the world, they played a crucial role in two world wars, survived Luftwaffe bombing, the Wall Street crash, and the advent of air travel. Their story is littered with superlatives – a string of world’s first, greatest, biggest and fastest – and of course, they also built a ship called the Titanic.
Presented by Col. Tim Collins and first shown on BBC NI in 2008, the series was later bought by the History Channel in the US.

RUBY AND THE DUKE
Duke Special tells the fascinating and poignant story of Belfast-born 1950s vocalist Ruby Murray in the Hardy Pictures documentary ‘Ruby and the Duke’.
