Sound bites from our oral history interviews in Ynysybwl

From May to July, we carried out some oral history interviews in Ynysybwl. We felt that asking people to talk about their past was a good way to make them think about energy and how they used it but also saved it in their everyday life. It was also important to us to use the technique of oral history as we felt it would allow people to tell us about their own experiences and memories, which may not be part of the “official history” of the area.

Here are some clips edited by our creative partners at Storyworks to give you a flavour of the things we heard about…
