A peaceful North Wales village is about to disappear once and for all under the waters of a dam that is about to be built by a powerful water company commanded by a city businessman, at one time a local resident of the place. It's time for the simple villagers to take action and try to save the only place they know and love. Written by
Great truthful historically accurate meaningful welsh gem
Very moving , emotional, educational and enjoyable movie Delighted to see a small tale of a wonderful small country like wales and the unique beauty of a welsh village It seems there have been a dozen or more welsh villages drowned to supply water to England.
This seems to have been forced on the villagers as democracy simply didn't exist for the smaller places and a small nation like Wales But the spirit of the people is wonderful The attitude to be positive and creative despite the impending eviction It's very sad and yet moving and uplifting These dozen or more welsh villages were drowned forever despite protests to the British government. The welsh didn't even get the water that was delivered to the English. So there was no consolation to the oppressed Welsh. When these reservoirs run low you can see the traces and foundations of the numerous buildings, homes, churches and farmlands drowned forever. It is haunting and sad It seems 100's of farmers were amongst those forced out, so too schools, churches, businesses and children. Never to return again. what a sad loss to the nation They are short of water in England even today and the threat is always to Wales of yet more drowning. The British have long been oppressed by the crown and the tiny proud nation of Wales has always been oppressed by England. The Welsh have tried appeasement but that always failed. Just as the Americans tried it with the English crown before the declaration of independence was written ironically by the welsh and Scots (I bet no Americans know that) Wales is 1000's of years older than England but it's culture and civil rights have always been ignored. Even the Prince Of Wales is not Welsh. The title, the land, the castles etc and even the thrones and coronets were stolen in 1271 and remain in London to this day An so the class system just rolls on........
