This promotional film aims to show that Llanelli is no forgotten backwater, the railway, motorway, Cardiff airport and nearby ports ensuring that the town is successfully linked to the modern world. Here you will see how industry has developed in the town beyond coal and steel and now includes a rubber factory and a brewery where workers get to enjoy a glass of the beer they have brewed. Kidwelly Castle and Gorsedd stones indicate that its history is not all industrial.
