A Welsh mining town pageant between 1900 and 2000 is serenaded by Bugeilior Gwenith Gwyn. See the excellent: History of Bargoed and Gilfach in Photographs by Paul James - ISBN 1 874538 07 7.

My father is shown in the 1948 snooker still with the cups to his right. He was vice-captain of the top team that year in a strong league, and individual champion of the Rhymney Valley, playing exhibition matches with some of the few professional players of the time. A table at the Miners Institute bore a brass plate recording his break of eight blacks in competition - exceptional at that time for an amateur who commuted to Cardiff for shift work. I saw him play Ray Reardon, then an amateur for Tredegar, in a club match. It ended one frame each."
