  • clips from audio and video interviews, ranging from significant political and trade union leaders to men who worked in the coal mines and their families
  • photographs which illustrate all aspects of life in the coalfield

Welsh Video Network

The Welsh Video Network is supported by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) of the Welsh Government,  the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) and through customer subscription. It is thanks to the vision and foresight of the funding bodies and their commitment over the past ten years that has meant that the Welsh Video Network has existed to encourage and facilitate increased adoption of videoconferencing across Wales. A steering group including representation from the major stakeholders meets regularly.
