Our Wee World of Trains

Regular visitors to the DCDR might have noticed something familiar on their TV screen this week, as a BBC1 trail shows our steam engine O&K No. 3, whisked back in time to the 1940s.

This is because the DCDR provided the location for a television programme produced by Barking Films for BBC1 NI.

“Our Wee World” features children from around Northern Ireland, celebrating their area with words, music and drama.

This edition tells the story of a young girl and her brother who are evacuated from Belfast in the 1940s. A silver bell becomes their only symbol of Christmas.

It’s on this coming Wednesday, 15th December at 19:30 on BBC One Northern Ireland. For viewers outside NI if you have Sky you can catch it on channel 973 or via the iPlayer.
