Wednesday 22nd May. Putting Welsh History on Television - Colin Thomas. 1pm

 

For some the interpretation of Welsh history is a battleground. Indeed Channel 4’s history of Wales The Dragon Has Two Tongues was a 13-part passionate argument between two totally different versions of the past, articulated by Wynford Vaughan Thomas and Professor Gwyn Alf Williams. Colin Thomas, the producer/director of that series and a three times winner of BAFTA Cymru’s Best Documentary award, will look back at his own attempts to put Welsh history on television and touch on those of other series like The Story of Wales and Wales – Horrible Histories.
