A Tale Of Two Cities’ (2006) Introduction from producer Michael Beattie & director Fiona Keane

Introduction from producer Michael Beattie & director Fiona Keane

These two documentary films narrated by Kenneth Branagh chart a series of dramatic events in Belfast a century ago, exposing a forgotten chapter in the city’s history.  They reveal a story of the glittering wealth of Belfast’s city fathers as they set about building a new city hall, set against the poverty, squalor, illness and destitution of the city’s poor.  Key shipyard owners were involved in the creation of the city hall, and with the Dock Strike of 1907.
