Video characteristics

The beginning of the video is of an older gentleman who reveals himself as the governor of the Apprentice Boys, but never mentions his name. He is sitting behind a table with only him in the picture when another member of the Apprentice Boys appears around the 20th minute. The camera then shows this man in the frame as well. The lighting is fair but the video quality is not very good. The camera keeps going in and out of focus. The audio was good although it was tough to hear the subjects at times because of their accents.

Description

These two gentlemen are members of the Apprentice Boys Association and they mainly discuss the details of their organization. The first man, the governor, talks about the current news involving the Apprentice Boys and a brief history of why the organization remembers its past. When the next man joins the governor, he answers questions about how the Apprentice Boys give back to the community and why they continue to celebrate their past. He's also asked why there are non-Irish people who celebrate with them. So the two members are asked about many things relating to their organization.
