In 2006 the Prisons Memory Archive (PMA) filmed 34 people who were connected to Armagh Gaol during the Troubles, including former prisoners, prison officers, teachers, chaplains, visitors, solicitors and welfare workers. The participants walked and talked their way around the derelict prison site, accompanied only by a camera operator, using the location as a stimulus for their memories. 'Unseen Women: Stories from Armagh Gaol' is a 26min linear documentary edited from the PMA recordings. It tells the stories of seven women: a former prisoner officer, two Open university tutors, a loyalist former prisoner and three republican former prisoners.
