' Men of Dowlais '
Recollections of the Trek to South
Wales forty and fifty years ago
The glory of the town of Dowlais, in Glamorganshire, has faded. Men came from all parts to shape its prosperity-from the quarries of the north, from the farms of the English countryside, from the fields and the ports of Ireland and of Spain. Tonight listeners will hear from four of those who came-a North Walian, an Irishman, a Spaniard, and an Englishman.

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.
