LETTER: Memories of Wales wanted

Award-winning documentary company Testimony Films is producing a new four-part series for BBC1 Cymru Wales on life in Wales during the 1980s. We’re keen to speak to people throughout Britain who lived in Wales in the 80s and have experiences and stories to share about some of the dramatic changes that took place.

From the effects of the miners’ strike and vast unemployment to changes in gender roles, popular culture and the rise of tourism - it was a decade of great upheaval for Welsh people throughout the country. The series will explore all aspects of life at this time and we would love to talk to you about your story!

If you or someone you know would like to share your memories with us please get in touch with Pete Vance - Tel: 0117 925 8589, Email: pete.vance@testimonyfilms.com, Address: 12 Great George Street, Bristol, BS1 5RH.
