Jonny Owen returns to his roots for historical inspiration

School children in Wales are not being taught enough about their own history, according to a report written for the Welsh government more than two-and-a-half years ago.

Now there are concerns about the lack of progress.

The actor Jonny Owen has returned home to Merthyr Tydfil, for the Wales Report, to explain why the town's past is worth knowing about.

The Wales Report is on BBC1 Wales at 22:40 GMT on Wednesday 20 January
