At the moment, the exhibitions team at the Library are very busy setting up for the Dot Dot Dash Exhibition. The new exhibition will open on Saturday 3 November, and it will look at how welsh people have communicated over the past 100 years.
The exhibition will include a lot of audiovisual material, and will include items from the Screen and Sound Archive’s collection. These items include the radio lecture by Saunders Lewis, Tynged yr Iaith (The fate of our language), and there will also be examples of propaganda films from the second world war.
A corner of the exhibition will be decorated as a 80s living room, to commemorate and celebrate S4C’s 30th birthday. The visitor can sit back and choose which of the channel’s classic clip they want to view.
The exhibition will end with a new film by Andrew Griffiths, which has been commissioned by the Library. The film celebrated some of the most prominent landmarks in the history of communication over the past 100 years. The film can also be seen online here.
PS – for those of you thinking I’d chosen a strange title for this blog post, the name of the exhibition will be Dot Dot Dash. “..-” is a letter in the Morse code alphabet.
We look forward to welcoming you to the exhibition. It’ll be open until September 2013, so plenty of time for you to arrange a trip to Aberystwyth!
