Summary

Soon after the Aberfan tragedy, in which 116 children and 28 adults were killed, people demanded answers. Less than a month later, a tribunal of inquiry began to hear evidence, the start of a valiant effort to discover the truth. Decades of battling followed, with the villagers having to fight to clear the remaining tips, and the authorities insisting they pay from disaster charity funds. Huw Edwards charts the story of the official inquiry.
