Emlyn Jenkins

This guest's earliest memory of television is seeing Stanley Matthews and his team, Blackpool, winning the Football Cup. He discusses his liking for seeing humour on television and though he has an interest in local politics he detests programmes on politics. He remembers the Aberfan tragedy; he cried as he saw the pictures. No commentary was needed - the images told the story very clearly. The violence that he saw on television was what worried him most about the Miners' Strike; he felt the miners were provoked. He refers to the battle between Scargill and Thatcher and questions the effectiveness of strikes generally. He believes that the Miners' Strike had an effect on his community forever.
