Talk to me in your language: broadcasting and the context of Wales on film

By Nigel Morris


Wales on film resembles Star Wars without special effects. A long time ago or, frequently, far, far away - a fantasy realm inhabited by sometimes grotesque but redeemable aliens or victim rebels against a destructive dark Empire - it is the stuff of myth.
