An educational film that seeks to show how geography and culture create identity. The landscape of north Wales offers slate and water on industrial scales, and sheep and timber flourish there. The south of the country is suitable for producing cattle, coal, iron and steel although newer, lighter industries are appearing that are less dependent on the land. But what unites the people – in the north, south, east and west of Wales - is the choral tradition, the love of singing.
