Pen Talar

Synopsis

A sweeping ‘state of the nation’ history, an epic odyssey, following the trials and tribulations of David Lewis’ life from his idyllic 1960s childhood in Arcadian rural Wales to his final disillusioned and dramatic exit from the centre of public life in the global meltdown of 2010. This is a Welsh ‘Heimat’ of our time, a truly European drama with a resonance way beyond its borders. The series is now available on DVD on Amazon, and in local stores.
