Pathe look at Wales

Video Archive | Pathè’s Look at Wales

It may start on slightly dodgy ground (“Wales… not far from Shakespeare Country”) but this short film exploring Wales in the 1950s from Pathè turns out to be a delightful collection film reels bringing together a diverse picture of the “Welsh experience”. It turns out to be quite a respectful and affectionate look at a country that was apparently as mysterious as a foreign land to many people in the UK. Enjoy a trip through a Wales that is perhaps now recognisable through squinted eyes.
