Wales on Screen
How has Wales been portrayed in the cinema and on TV? How does it portray itself? Is it possible to forge a distinctive film industry in the shadow of UK/US cultural domination? This book surveys the celluloid depiction of Wales from How Green Was My Valley to Twin Town, and looks at the current state of the television industry. What are the conditions for creatives and technicians? Does Wales get its fair share of network programming? Is language an issue? Why is animation such a success story? Film-makers and commentators alike address these complex subjects with verve and insight, making Wales on Screen essential reading for all concerned with Welsh cultural life.
