Britain's Most Historic Towns

Duration: 60 min

Alice Roberts explores Cardiff's Edwardian past, discovering how the coal industry transformed the Rhondda Valley in the early 1900s. She investigates the difficult and often dangerous work of the miners, and visits the trading floor where the first ever million pound cheque was signed. The programme also investigates how global shipping routes and plentiful employment brought immigrants from across the world to Wales, and meets descendants of people who came to the city in the early years of the 20th century
