BBC Article On Tredegar Filmmaker

A BBC News article tells of a new film about the Welsh town of Tredegar, the American iron works named after it, and the filmmaker’s last legacy.


Six months after his death, a filmmaker’s final work has been completed and it is hoped it will put his hometown, Tredegar, on the map.
Peter Morgan Jones scripted and voiced hundreds of documentaries as well as writing many books about south Wales.
When he died, he was making a film about Tredegar’s namesake in Richmond, Virginia, and south Wales’ little-known influence in the American civil war.
It has been completed and is attracting interest from US television networks.
While the Blaenau Gwent town is famous for links to Aneurin Bevan and the NHS, Mr Jones spent a decade uncovering its role in supplying arms to the Confederate South and rebuilding the USA after the war.
