Private Lives | Gwyn Thomas

In 1975, the Welsh writer and broadcaster Gwyn Thomas was interviewed by ITV for their “Private Lives” series. Gwyn describes his childhood and family life growing up in a deprived mining community in the Rhondda Valley in South Wales. Despite the great hardship, personal tragedy and unrelenting poverty that he endured there, Gwyn speaks passionately with great warmth and affection for his home town and the people who lived there.
