Cymry 1914-1918: 'Y Somme a Choedwig Mametz'

‘Cymry 1914-1918’ is a landmark series commemorating WW1 for BBC Radio Cymru. ‘Y Somme a Choedwig Mametz’, recounts one of the most significant battles for Welsh soldiers, recording a unique moment in time which touches on the universality of the horror of war. At the heart of the programme are contemporary first-hand accounts which transport us to 1916 through the eyes of ‘ordinary’ people who had faced the ‘extraordinary’. Poetic and articulate testimonies combined with music and sound FX, create an authentic artistic representation of the Welsh experience. Interspersed with witness accounts are emotional responses by relatives today.

(Programme 2, 1916)
