My Generation

Wales in the Sixties Episode 1 of 4

Colour archive, personal stories and a killer sixties soundtrack - this people's history tells the extraordinary story of the rebellion by the younger generation who came of age in the 1960s, and transformed Wales forever. Andy Fairweather Low, Sharon Morgan, Kim Howells, Heather Jones and others reveal their secret life as sixties teenagers. Like many others they rejected chapel values and looked to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Carnaby Street for inspiration.
