The Northern Ireland Assembly was dissolved at 00:01 on Thursday 26 January, 2017. The elections will take place on Thursday 2 March, 2017.

New Assembly Web-Base Programme

The Assembly‚Äôs Communications and Broadcast teams have developed a new web-based regular programme called Assembly Extra. The programme is a mix of features, interviews and behind the scenes insights into the workings of the Assembly.  Each programme is about ten minutes long.  

You will be able to view the programme on the internal TV system (NIATV) from Monday 26 March, under Recorded Programmes. The first programme will also go live on the Assembly website from 8.00am on Monday

In programme one, we go behind the scenes with Assembly Broadcasting as they go live on air for the first Plenary session following the election. We also hear from our Education Service to find out what school groups can expect from a visit to Parliament Buildings; plus we find out how a Bill becomes law.
