Marjorie Peters

The interviewee was one of the few who had a television for the Coronation and they invited neighbours to see it. Opera was important too, but state events made the greatest impression.Remembers having a debate about Tryweryn at work but didn't think much about the impact until later. Heard about the Aberfan disaster while at the hairdresser's, saw the coverage later. Watched the Investiture at home and remembers the apprehension that someone would spoil the ceremony. During the Miners' Strike she remembers Arthur Scargill and the confrontations. Aware of the loss of community but thought it was a good thing miners didn't have to go down into the mines any more.
