Sources for Courses: Media and the Memory in Wales

Aberystwyth University has partnered with Culturenet Cymru and the BBC to produce a website dedicated to showcasing the historical effects of media in Wales.

Media and the Memory in Wales, as listed in Databases A-Z in Primo, is a useful resource particularly for students of Welsh and Welsh History. The website provides a database recording the depictions of significant moments of political and cultural history in Welsh Media, focusing specifically on the personal recollections of people from different areas of Wales. These recollections are organised as they pertain to different geographical regions and particular historical events.

The site also includes features on the development of Welsh media; looking at the development of Welsh TV channel S4C and the political context in which Welsh media has grown. The influence of television in Wales in general is also explored, and a wide range of people share their personal experiences.
