John Meredith: Yr Hwn Ydwyf
John Meredith Other books by John Meredith
The autobiography of John Meredith, the news correspondent who presented the most groundbreaking news in Wales' recent history. As the reporter from Carmarthen on the night of the referendum in 1997, he shared with the nation the confidential information that the majority "Yes" vote in Carmarthenshire was enough to snatch an unforgettable victory for Wales. The moment itself became an historic one, and in this book we are told of how the reporter became a central part of the story of the Welsh Parliament. But this is only one chapter in the interesting and varied life of John Meredith. He paints a picture of Welsh village life in Bont before the changes to rural life; we are also given a taste of London Welsh life and selling milk after the war; not to mention numerous tales of soccer in Ceredigion and beyond. Few are aware that John was also a scientist, and did some important work on the development of cell biology before he turned to his new career as a broadcaster - a career that ended in 2010 after decades of travelling throughout Wales, bringing stories, big and small, to the nation, but a career that will be remembered forever for the satisfied smile that told everyone that "the Assembly was won".
