The Story of Wales (6 x 60′) – Huw Edwards presents a series that explores almost 30,000 years of Welsh history. It starts with a reconstruction of the earliest known human burial in Western Europe – the “Red Lady” of Paviland, 29,000 years ago. Its epic story runs through Hywel Dda’s uniting Wales under one law, the Welsh at the heart of the Tudor court, through the immense pace of change in the country as coal mines and iron works flourished – with technological and educational innovations putting Wales ahead of the world in the Industrial Revolution – and right up to present day devolution.
