A Pilgrimage in Time and in South Wales by FILSON YOUNG
Spoken and directed by the Author
Produced by CYRIL WOOD
(West Regional
Little that is historical is known of St. David, but from the legends surrounding his life there has emerged a figure that Wales is proud to honour as her national saint. This programme is the story in a sequence of sound, speech and music of a modern pilgrimage to his shrine: the author acts as narrator, while listeners in imagination accompany two Welsh and English travellers from Cardiff to St. David's Cathedral. Here, on the spot where the Saint lived and built his monastery five hundred years before the Cathedral was built, listeners are taken back through time to the days of St. David.
