Christmas Past - Christmas Eve

A look back to 1960s rural Wales and how the advent of Christmas brought the whole community together.

We see how Swansea telephone engineers devised an entirely new service for children to phone Father Christmas and whilst Christmas Eve brought the promise of Father Christmas's arrival, it also occasionally brought heavy snowfall too.
