Charles Burton and the Rhondda group

Art students travelling together to Art college in Cardiff by train fired with enthusiasm, dedication and heated discusssion. Colour footage (present-day) of Charles Burton in his studio painting and talking about his work and his days in the Rhondda group. These art students lived in the Rhondda and yet had a keen eye on what was happening in other parts of the world in relation to new art movements. There was a strong and new belief post World War 2 that one 'could really do something oneself wherever one was'.
