Here is something a bit different. Welsh Political Icons is a series of audio biographies of Welsh political figures commissioned and edited by Daran Hill. Each audio file has been written and presented by the ascribed author. Subjects may be alive or dead: the only rule is they must have a strong Welsh connection.
This issue is about William Henry Mainwaring, an educator, intellectual, Royal Commissioner and powerful political organiser who served as MP for Rhondda East from 1933 to 1959. In a personal and compelling audio biography, Dr Daryl Leeworthy stresses his importance as a politician and a historian in the context of the making of the politics and identity of "American Wales"
