Description

'For a Fistful of Stories.' Exploring the Ulster Way - 500 miles of Northern Ireland. This episode looks at farming in County Antrim, interviewing Patsy McBride, a farmer negotiating the harsh reality of trying to make a living from the land. The McBrides also run pony trekking for those wishing to explore the Ulster Way 'on someone else's feet,' as our presenter terms it. Their newest venture, seen here, is a man-made lake for trout fishing. We see how farmers are engaged with conservation and how this can be used as part of the profitable management of land. Also includes footage of the Lammas Fair, music from fiddler Sam Stevenson, and interviews with one or two figures who pop up elsewhere in our archives.
