Episode 6 of 6

Duration: 1 hour

Huw Edwards presents this major television history of Wales, showing the country in ways it has never been seen before.

In the last seventy years, Wales changes more rapidly than ever. In this final episode, a Welshman battles to set up Britain's most cherished institution, the NHS, the British parliament votes to drown a Welsh valley, a new generation of sporting heroes sets the flags waving and television itself becomes part of the story of Wales. The Welsh are a nation of commuters and consumers, but their sense of history is revived: they are a people with a story - and that story gives them power.
