Black Gold, Green Valley  Single Documentary

At the head of the Llynfi Valley, just north of Bridgend, lies the former mining town of Maesteg. For over a century it was a powerhouse of coal production. The pits are now long gone...but this is a community still coloured by coal. Nowadays, the face of Maesteg is being redesigned. But no-one's in a hurry to forget the past. From a group of former miners trying to save their industrial opera society bringing the Wild West to Wales...and a young photographer creating a stir with a striking view of his home town. This is a snapshot of life after coal...
