Story of Wales

Post by Ely » Fri December 23rd, 2011, 1:44 pm

BBC Wales are to air a new series in the New Year called the Story of Wales. Those of us in the UK with Sky, can view BBC 1 Wales on channel 972 and BBC 2 Wales on channel 991

Quote below is taken from the BBC website:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/waleshistory ... wales.html

"The Story of Wales is packed with heroes and triumphs, grand dreams and great endeavours. From a land of story-tellers, this is the story of the land itself and of the people who've shaped it.

It's the first time in a generation that BBC Cymru Wales has tackled the story of our history - the last major series to do so was The Dragon Has Two Tongues which aired in the mid-1980s. And an awful lot has changed since then.

We can't tell you exactly when The Story of Wales will start in the new year, but we can promise you a compelling tale, packed with dramatic reconstructions and impressive CGI. Keep an eye on the programme site and on BBC One and BBC Two Wales for news."

Want! Want! Want! And I live in the US so probably won't be able to get it.

It's about time this happened.

Ever since the furore over Schama's Anglo-centric A History of Britain, it has been obvious that the Celtic histories needed also to be told. Neil Oliver's History of Scotland, now a few years old, filled part of the gap so this series will complete the triology.

Combined with Andrew Marr's two series on Modern Britian this makes a very nice package from the BBC.

It might also assist some to understand that British does not just mean English and that England is not a synomyn for Britain and that is a reason why we are called the United Kingdom.
