OU on the BBC: The Story of Wales
Explore the history of Wales and stories of its biggest icons.
The Story of Wales starts with a reconstruction of the earliest known human burial in Western Europe—the 'Red Lady' of Paviland, 29,000 years ago.
Its epic story runs through Hywel Dda’s uniting Wales under one law, the Welsh at the heart of the Tudor court, through the immense pace of change in the country as coal mines and iron works flourished, right up to present day devolution.
The Story of Wales comes to an audience beyond its birthplace when it reaches BBC Two this autumn. More information will appear here and on the BBC's Story of Wales page; you can also visit The Story of Wales Facebook page.
