Hedd Wyn - The Lost War Poet

The story of Hedd Wyn is one of Wales’ most compelling tragedies. A young man with little or no formal education succeeds in winning rhe Chair, the main literary prize at the National Eisteddfod, but is killed in the Great War, before he can claim his award. To mark the centenary of the poet’s death, National Poet of Wales, Ifor ap Glyn re-assesses his life, work and legacy. Featuring fascinating archive interviews recorded during the 1960s and 70s with his family and friends, together with contemporary archive material from WW1, Ifor visits key locations in Wales, Liverpool and Flanders.
