ITV is marking the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster with a prime-time, hour-long documentary.
The Aberfan Young Wives' Club looks at how the spirit of Aberfan has endured since the tragic day on 21st October 1966 when the catastrophic collapse of a colliery spoil tip killed 116 children and 28 adults in the village's Pantglas Junior School.
The story of the disaster and its aftermath is told through the eyes of seven women who are part of the Aberfan Young Wives Group.
They came together in the depths of grief and have been meeting every week for the past 50 years.
Many of the women speak for the first time about an event that changed their lives.
Directed by multi-award-winning director Marc Evans (Safe House, Hinterland, Collision, Jack to a King, House of America), the programme makes use of ITV’s extensive archive footage of the disaster and subsequent events.
It features music specially-composed by James Dean Bradfield of the Manic Street Preachers.
