Marian’s Story…

View & Listen - Posted 19-04-2010

This morning, an individual came in to view ‘Marian’s Story‘. The programme was part of the series ‘The Time of My Life” made by Red Flannel and BBC Wales. This programme features Marian Goronwy Roberts, the daughter of a politically active mother and a musical father. She recalls her childhood in Aberdare, her education, her meeting with her future husband, Goronwy O. Roberts (Labour MP for Caernarfonshire) and the landslide Labour election victory after the war.

There are also other stories by welsh women in the film collection, including ‘Rachel’s Story‘ – which features Welsh actress Rachel Thomas.
