I was recently interviewed by Barry Sheppard for Northern Visions TV's History Now series in Belfast, to discuss my take on family history as a discipline within the wider field of history.
The programme is now streaming online at https://www.nvtv.co.uk/shows/history-now-chris-paton/, and is presented below for convenience - enjoy!
