Yvonne Francis

The family of this interviewee got a television set for Princess Margaret's wedding. Though he feels that there is a conflict between Welshness and Britishness with regard to ceremonies such as the Investiture he admits that broadcasting such events brings colour to people's lives. Following Aberfan he discusses the idea that seeing disasters on television makes us blase towards people's suffering and that television also conditions us to expect everything to be exciting. He talks of protesting at the time of the Investiture and Tryweryn and how society's reaction to protest and law-breaking has changed, with members of the Welsh Language Society who were previously regarded as villains, now seen as heroes. Both Referendums on Devolution are discussed; the dismay of 79 and the thrill of 97.
