This week: In Whose Interest?
On the north coast of Anglesey, construction has already begun on a super-tanker oil terminal for Shell. It is a £50-million development which promises unexpected wealth, new jobs and financial security.
But there is a price to pay for this hope of a rosy future. The Anglesey Defence Action Group claim that the price is too high; that there is a grave risk of oil spillage on holiday beaches; that an area of outstanding beauty will be destroyed.
The oil men say the terminal is ' in the nation's interest '; that it is necessary to meet the increasing need for oil products in the Midlands and the North West.
Harold Williamson examines the arguments for both sides, and Desmond Wilcox chairs a town meeting with oil men, planners and the people of Anglesey.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
