Coffee houses, rebellion, and steam engines

In my misspent youth, I thought I would spend my life immersed in the life and work of Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744), but I wandered off to flirt with other eras and research fields. I'm sure that there's a lot of good work I've missed in the past 25 years, so I'm looking for social history recommendations from the Glorious Revolution through 1760. [more inside]

How do I find Parliamentary debates on Northern Ireland?

GoogleFuFailureFilter: I am looking for free transcripts of UK (Westminster) Parliamentary debates for around 1969-1980. Specifically, I'm looking for discussions about Northern Ireland. Astonishingly, I can't find them after a full day of looking, not even on the Westminster website, which seems only to go back as far as 1988. How is this possible? Help!

UK Educational Marine Life?

Finding more than Nemo: aided by innumerable viewings of Finding Nemo and the Little Mermaid, my three-year old's fascination with the aquatic world continues, fuelled by a lovely trip to the small-ish but very impressive Mote Marine Laboratory while in Florida a few months ago. However: we're in the UK, where - despite being surrounded by water - good quality aquariums seem rather thin on the ground (sic). Can anyone recommend good places of this kind (educational, subjects well looked after)? Is the London Aquarium good?
