RTE One will be showing the third in a new series called "The Way We Worked", described as a look at changing attitudes to work during the 20th Century, on 30th October 2009. The programme is on at 2030-2100 on RTE One.
This week's edition looks at the industrialisation of turf cutting in Ireland.
The programme was a no holds barred take on the difficult conditions in which employees of the Turf Board (now Bord Na Mona) worked. The Turf Board was no decent employer. The programme is a mix of industrial and social history.
Days Hotel Belfast - located in a lovely area of Belfast where the Union Jack flies from every lamppost and the kerbstones are painted blue white and red.
