Bethan Elfyn presents the Manic Street Preachers’ challenging and cherished album The Holy Bible recorded live, uncut and uncensored in Cardiff Castle.

Twenty one years after its release, this highly influential album continues to shock audiences with its unflinching portrayal of subjects such the holocaust, prostitution, anorexia and capital punishment. Its legacy has been intrinsically linked with the band’s lyricist and guitarist Richey Edwards’ disappearance soon after release.

Recorded in Cardiff Castle for BBC Music Day, this is a unique and exclusive chance to hear this landmark album performed live in its entirety.
