The Story of Wales, a BBC / Open University partnership production, was a six-hour series first transmitted in 2012 on BBC ONE Wales and subsequently on BBC TWO network. This landmark series tells the story of Wales from pre-history to modern times. Its epic tale runs from Iron Age hillforts and the massive Roman presence in Wales, through Hywel Dda’s uniting of the country under one law and the battles of Welsh leaders like Llywelyn and Owain Glyndwr with Norman and English kings. The dramatic and fast moving story continues with the Welsh at the heart of the Tudor court, takes us through the immense pace of change in the country as coal mines and iron works flourished — with technological and educational innovations putting Wales ahead of the world in the Industrial Revolution - and climaxes with devolution and the creation of a Welsh Government. BBC News at Ten presenter Huw Edwards tells this compelling story of the nation, showing how influential Wales has been down the ages. In addition to the heroes and battles, the series reveals how so often, through the turbulent centuries, Wales has been at the cutting-edge of change and innovation.
