Produced in the European Year of the Environment for the Central Electricity Generating Board, this film uses Nature Conservancy Council warden Hywel Roberts as linkman. Eryri/Snowdonia is shown to be an area rich in historical, geographical and cultural significance, where the ancient (sheep, slate, castles) co-exist naturally with the modern (outdoor pursuits, electricity generation). Artist Kyffin Williams bears witness to the inspiring nature of the land.
