Milestone Moments Part 1
Roy Jenkins presents the first of two special programmes to mark the 40th birthday of BBC Radio Wales. All Things Considered has been here almost from the beginning. Week by week, we’ve explored big national and global events, discussed moral and ethical issues, and profiled life-changing initiatives in the communities of Wales. Always we’ve sought to reflect from a perspective of faith. Although we have our lighter moments, for sure, sharing celebrations, telling stories of courage and achievement, exploring how religious belief can be maintained in a huge variety of situations, we confess from the start that since this tiny selection reflects some of the most significant news events of the period, there’s not a great deal of laughter on offer. We hope you’ll find, though, that what you hear will be worth remembering. This week we hear from individuals involved in 9/11, the Iraq War, from Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the South African Peace and Reconciliation Talks; from Gordon Wilson on the death of his daughter in the Enniskillen bomb; and from two ministers who witnessed first hand the tragedy of the Aberfan disaster.
