Northern Visions’ archive comprises works that are derived from its activities as a Channel 4 franchised workshop producing films for broadcast television since 1986, its activities as an Ofcom licensed local television broadcaster since 2002 and a collection of material spanning the years 1930-1980, which has been donated by the founders and friends of Northern Visions.
The majority of our archives focus on Northern Irish community and social life and Belfast in particular.
The Special Collection “Our Generation” sets out to document the reminiscences and insight of people, who in a myriad of ways, sought to build positive structures, resources and services in the community. Not so much a hidden heritage, more an unrecorded one of a generation of people who tried new ideas and new ways of engaging others to effect change and build a modern society.
We are constantly digitising our extensive archive collections for viewing on the web so please visit us again to view new additions.
