Award-winning author, poet and playwright Owen Sheers had his first novel Resistance made into a film.
To mark the 50th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster, the BBC commissioned Owen Sheers to write a film-poem in the voice of the village. The resulting film The Green Hollow was broadcast in 2016 and BAFTA nominated.
Here Owen reads from the Faber publication of The Green Hollow and will take questions after the reading.
