CELTIC MEDIA FESTIVAL
In 1994 BBC Radio Wales commissioned producers Daniel Whistler and Terry Lewis to make a programme to mark the 70th anniversary of the Great War. At that time Ivor Watkins, Bob Owen, Fred Wall and George Richards were some of the last surviving Welsh witnesses to the horror of trench warfare. They talked about their lives before the War, the horror of the Western Front and how the carnage changed them. To mark the centenary of the end of WW1, Welsh poet Paul Henry has written a specially commissioned poem that weaves those veterans' stories together and commemorates their lives.
