One of the interviewee's earliest memories is seeing the Commonwealth Games on television. She remembers the lovely experience of being in a hotel and deciding to go to the bar to watch a rugby match and thoroughly enjoyed. She remembers seeing Cliff Mitchelmore broadcasting from Aberfan, realising then how serious the event was, and remembering the blackness. As a Welshwoman, the Investiture ceremony meant nothing but she got caught up in the excitement and saw the event as a big show. She remembers the objections, and saw some people smashing Investiture mugs on Trefor beach. She says that she does not remember much of the 1979 Referendum, in 97 was dismayed that Cardiff had voted 'No' and the amazement when the result from Carmarthen was announced.She remembers the night S4C was launched, watched Superted. She feels pride when somethig good is produced. She does not remember seeing the miners on television during the Miners' Strike in the 80s, Arthur Scargill was to be seen on television.
