Description

This episode of Counterpoint tells the story of the Vietnamese boat people who were settled in Craigavon in 1979. Craigavon was the first area within Northern Ireland to receive refugees and the programme looks at some of the practicalities around accommodation and employment, interviewing William Boyd, who outlines how resettlement was coordinated through a community response, visiting language classes in Brownlow College, and talking to a refugee who has found a work placement as a welder.
