Changing Cityscapes: Belfast


Titanic Quarter's Michael Graham tours the site

Once one of the world's busiest ports, Belfast was where the Titanic was designed, built and launched.

The vast shipyards employed more than 30,000 people in the 1950s. Now the land is being cleared and redeveloped in one of Europe's biggest waterside schemes.

As part of the BBC News Changing Cityscapes series, Michael Graham from the Titanic Quarter shows BBC News the site, which he hopes will breathe new life into a once vibrant part of the city.
