50 years since Aberystwyth Welsh language protest closed bridge

This weekend sees the 50th anniversary of a protest in Aberystwyth that marked the start of half a century of protest by Welsh language campaigners.

Members of Cymdeithas yr Iaith stuck posters over the town's post office and blocked Trefechan Bridge.

Kevin Ashford has been to meet one of the original protestors and examines if the fifty years of subsequent actions by the organisation has been worth it.
