The last in the series with David Jessel
Times were never easy in Glyncorrwg, a small mining community near Port Talbot. But today, with the pits closed and 40 per cent unemployed, the village is close to despair. In an eloquent film from BBC Wales, the people of Glyncorrwg talk about their own sense of helplessness as the world's economic tide sweeps past them, leaving their traditional industry derelict, their own destiny stranded. What is our response-and what should be our responsibility to Glyncorrwg's fate and the plight of Britain's three million unemployed?
DAVID JESSEL counts the human cost of economic forces with Professor Brian Griffiths - economist, monetarist, Christian and Welshman.
