Viewers are to be given another chance to watch the Oscar winning film set in Northern Ireland, The Shore.

Terry George won 'Best Live Action Short' at the Oscars in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The Shore was filmed entirely at George's family cottage at Coney Island near Ardglass, County Down

It tells the story of two boyhood best friends - Joe (Ciaran Hinds) and Paddy (Conleth Hill) who have not spoken for 25 years after a fall-out.

When Joe returns home to Northern Ireland, his daughter Patricia brings the two men together for a reunion, with unexpected results.

George's daughter Oorlagh helped raise the finance for the project and was the film's producer. Countless other family and friends also worked on the film.

The film was first shown on BBC One but will be aired again on BBC Four later this month.

The Shore on BBC Four at 22:30 GMT on Sunday 18 March.
