Description

Derry/Londonderry, a city of culture, innovation and grit.

Meet the people of this city who are as resilient as its ancient walls and historic bridges.  Explore the deep history of the Waterside, the sight of many historic battles and the final resting place of prolific figures, before joining the city's working class in the world renowned shirt factories.  You'll hear both tales of war-time hardship and excitement, as American troops set up base in the city and introduce the natives to the jitterbug and all the glittering promises of the American dream.
