This book provides, for the first time, a detailed historical narrative and critical analysis of independent television (ITV) in Wales. Focusing primarily on the critical years of the 1950s and 1960s, and drawing on key archival sources from Wales and beyond, it locates the history of ITV within wider debates over national identity, language and culture in Wales. It also aims to redress an imbalance in media historiography where the more established BBC has ‘stolen the limelight’. The attention devoted to Wales, and commercial television in Wales in particular, in the broad spectrum of broadcasting historiography has been minimal. Seen by some as a more populist and sometimes ‘tacky’ alternative to the BBC, the book argues that in Wales ITV pioneered across a range of programming formats, including games shows and news in the Welsh language, and moved the television service forward in many ways. ITV in Wales provided nurture for creative talent in both English and Welsh languages and produced some ground-breaking programmes which changed the face of Welsh television. It also provided a degree of plurality within the media in Wales. Accessible to undergraduate and postgraduate students, it will also appeal to the general reader with an interest in the media in Wales, Welsh history and the cultural politics of broadcasting in a small nation.

This beautifully illustrated guides explores the country in a relaxed narrative style by guiding the reader to some of the established visitor attractions but also focusing on the more secluded and less well-known places of interest and places to stay, eat and drink.Also known as the "Red Dragon", Wales is a country blessed with some of the most dramatic landscapes in Britain. To the north lies Snowdonia, a land of awe-inspiring mountains, wild moorlands and enchanting lakes. Further south the land is abundant with deep valleys and vast forests. Wales also has a rich cultural heritage full of myths and legends founded on Celtic ancestry but has an equally strong industrial past.

Working practices between the UK and Welsh Assembly governments in relation to cross-border policies appear much improved since the Committee's earlier reports on this subject. But a number of outstanding issues remain in transport, health and further and higher education. On transport the Committee welcomes the planned electrification of the Great Western Main Line. However, the Department for Transport appears to have washed its hands of any strategic responsibility for cross-border roads. The A483 is the clearest example of a road vital for travel within Wales but which is not important to the English region in which it is located, and as a result loses out on funding. The Committee stresses the need for comparative data on which to build solid research comparing NHS performance in the devolved nations. More needs to be done to raise public awareness of the differences in services people can expect to receive on both sides of the border. Transparency of information is vital. Research proposals in the UK Government's Higher Ambitions strategy for higher education make no reference to nations other than England, despite the UK-wide research remit of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The Committee calls for details about how research funding proposals apply to all four nations.

This is the first detailed study of English and Welsh agriculture and agricultural change in the period 1640 to 1750. It is the work of nineteen specialists, who have used original archives in local record offices throughout the kingdom, as well as central records. The volume examines the special economic and social circumstances of these years, and the changing price relationships of agricultural produce. It traces consequent changes in farm profits; the diversification of agriculture; the development of more regional specialisation and of horticulture; the emergence of agricultural policy that was both broader and yet looser in its objectives than before; the responses of landowners as estate managers and farmers; the elaboration of marketing facilities and of channels of communication for advertising new ways in farming. A richly illustrated account is given of building developments on farms, and in villages generally. An appendix contains annual and decennial price and wage indexes.
