Audio Visual Collections

The collection has a wide range of content. It encompasses every aspect of the culture and life of Wales and the Welsh as it has been chronicled by the audio-visual media, in sound, video and film recordings, and to a certain extent, the latest digital media.

The collection comprises radio and television broadcasts sound recordings and amateur films, cassettes and CDs, commercial films and videos on every subject under the sun - from sport to war, from news to history programmes, from art to the coal and slate industries, from politics to soap operas, from pop music to Pobol y Cwm, from Country and Western to Cwm Hyfryd, from oral history to the latest music trend.

There are also numerous examples of material which extend far beyond the boundaries of Wales, and which help to place the rest of the collections in a wider context.
