As developers moved onto the site with plans for a brand new £100 million project, comedian Jake O’Kane takes us on a nostalgic trip back through the archives, as he tells the story of Belfast’s King’s Hall. From the annual agricultural show, pop concerts and Ideal Home exhibitions to protest marches, election counts and boxing, the King’s Hall has been at the heart of life here since 1934.

Everything will change, but the memories of public figures from MP Ian Paisley to former world champion boxer Barry McGuigan, Sinn Fein’s Gerry Adams and journalist Ivan Little come alive in this hour-long documentary.

Featuring a wealth of archive footage - from sources including BFI, ITV, and PRONI - and including material sourced from the Digital Film Archive.

Kings Hall of Fame is available to watch now on BBC iPlayer
