How has Wales been portrayed in the cinema and on TV? How does it portray itself? Is is possible to forge a distinctive film industry in the shadow of UK/US cultural domination? This book surveys the celluloid depiction of Wales from How Green Was My Valley to Twin Town, and looks at the current state of the television industry.
