Twenty-five years ago next week, the community of Aberfan was struck by disaster. This play, first broadcast in 1982, tells the story of a woman whose life has already been affected by an accident at Gresford Colliery in 1934, when 265 men were trapped by fire and entombed in the mine. She has to face tragedy again at Aberfan.

Written by Catharine Hughes.

With the children of Penygelli Junior School and the people of Coedpoeth and Wrexham in north Wales.
