Memoirs of Gareth Price, former Controller of BBC Wales (1968-90), who worked for the Corporation between 1964 and 1990, the most exciting period of growth in the history of Welsh broadcasting. He spent ten years (1964-74) as a television producer and 16 years (1974-90) appointing, enabling and leading production teams in all their varied activities at the BBC. 98 images.

Author Biography:
Gareth Price was educated at schools in Aberaman and Aberaeron and read Economics at University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, before joining BBC Wales in 1964. After more than a quarter of a century at the Corporation, he retired as Controller of BBC Wales in 1990. He later joined the Thomson Foundation as Controller of Broadcasting and Director.
Further Information:
His memoir is a human story of those individuals who worked through the most exciting period of growth in the history of Welsh broadcasting. In just six years, between January 1977 and November 1982, two national radio stations and S4C were launched, leading to the simultaneous relaunch of a BBC Wales TV service devoid of the Welsh language.
As well as recounting the work of high profile and creative colleagues, Gareth Price recalls events which shaped Wales and the BBC during this time, such as the anguish of Aberfan in 1966; a surge of national pride created by great Welsh rugby teams of the 1970s and the sadness and suffering as King Coal died a slow death during and after the last great strike of 1984–5. 
This is a social history of a specific era and the personalities who enlarged and revolutionised the broadcasting landscape of Wales.
