Series exploring the 20th century through diaries and correspondence of real people.

In the 1960s Welsh identity was under threat. Sharon Morgan was a young history student at Cardiff University; Sir Glanmor Williams was an eminent historian and a member of the Broadcasting Council for Wales. Despite their differences, the student activist and the establishment figure shared the same passion for Wales and the Welsh language. We follow them through these turbulent years as the nation begins to reassert itself.

Dramatised by Tina Pepler from documents at the National Library of Wales.
