Ieuan Roberts

The interviewee had no television during his childhood but he remembers children talking about programmes at school. He says that television was not an important part of anyone's life at that time, social life was far more important. He remembers watching rugby on a television in a shop window if he could not get a ticket to a match. He discusses the lack of Welsh television in the Wrexham area and says that the Referendum made the biggest impression on him. He would go to a rugby match every time, if he could, nobody talked about watching in a pub at that time. He did not manage to receive S4C until three months after the launch. He remembers that the news showed every night how many miners were returning to work during the Miners' Strike. The media were creating the stories and the picture was very one-sided. He says it split the community and some people still refused to speak to eachother.
