Carolyn Wilcox

This guest's earliest television memory is watching the Coronation. She also remembers a street party to celebrate the occasion where a piano from someone's house was taken onto the street so that people could sing. Remembering the images of Aberfan she feels that the people of the village should have had more privacy - that television had been too eager to show the disaster. She remembers the thrill of watching Rugby in the 70s, especially watching the stars like JPR Williams. Discussing the Investiture she speaks of the importance of having a Prince of Wales and her lack of sympathy with the protestors. She refers to her intellectual and practical support for the Miners' Strike, and comments on the roles of Scargill and Thatcher.
