Dot Dot Dash: Communicating in Wales

3 November 2012 - 14 September 2013

Do you remember life without Facebook and Twitter Were you watching a television set 30 years ago when S4C was launched? Can you remember listening to important news from the front line on the wireless during the Second World War?

Through the eyes of one main character, Bryn Jones, this exhibition will focus on the collections of the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales, displaying iconic audio and visual clips from each decade of the past century. It will trace some of the major milestones in the history of communication in Wales that have changed the way we live our lives today.

Featuring objects borrowed from the Museum of Communication in Fife, this exhibition will guide you down memory lane with early radio and television sets, home-movie clips and audio clips of early radio broadcasts in Wales.

Exhibition photographs can be seen on Facebook
