In the 1960’s writer and broadcaster Gwyn Thomas made a series of programmes for TWW in which he visited different parts of Wales. In this programme, Gwyn visits the Vale of Neath. Today, his unique, warm and darkly humourous observations give us a fascinating insight into what life was like for people living in these Welsh communities over 40 years ago.

    Pont-Neath-Vaughan, Pont-Nedd-Fechan these days. Who said Dai nationalist and his friends won’t have an affect back in the sixties! They changed village names for gods sakes, back to what they think they used to be called, before the devil…..
