The Voices of Aberfan: Documentary Investigating the Aberfan Disaster

Reform’s first program as an independent production company was broadcast on 19th October 2016 on BBC Radio 2. The program was a full length documentary presented by Welsh singing legend Max Boyce. The show explored the horrific events of the Aberfan disaster which happened 50 years ago on the week of broadcast.

More specifically, as an ex miner and choral singer himself, Max took a very personal look at the Ynysowen (Aberfan) Male Choir. The choir was formed in the village in the wake of the tragedy and still remains strong to this day.

Part of Reform’s strategy as a CIC is to develop the next generation of radio and digital professionals to gain new experience and open up new revenue streams for themselves. For this documentary we reinvested our production budget into supporting our DJs, and Kelvin Brown to develop his first professional radio production.

Thanks to the support and guidance from Nija Dalal-Small.
