The career and legacy of former first minister Ian Paisley has been analysed for a new two-part BBC documentary being screened this month.

According to an article in a Sunday newspaper Dr Paisley, now known as Lord Bannside, is reported to have agreed to a request from journalist Eamonn Mailie for unprecedented access to the iconic unionist leader and Free Presbyterian Church co-founder.

The first of the two programmes is due to be broadcast on BBC1 NI at 10.35pm on Monday, January 13, with the second on January 20.
