Elaine Lewis

The Coronation was more important than conquering Everest at the time for this interviewee. She talks of the Investiture with pride and remembers specifically the Queen's dress, and George Thomas explaining the sound of an explosion to the Prince. Aberfan is discussed and the fact that television broadcasting images is more effective than only hearing of the disaster would be. She feels that broadcasting during the Miners' Strike was tightly controlled and that the portrayal of the miners and their cause was not a fair one. Whilst discussing the two Devolution Referendums - a concept which she did not support - she stayed on her feet all night to watch the 79 results as she expected the result to be against devolution, but she went to bed before the 97 results were announced as she expected the 'Yes' faction to win.
