The Children of Craig-y-nos

'The Children of Craig-y-nos', begun in 2007 as a search for the ex-patients of a tuberculosis sanatorium in South Wales, has collected over 100 oral testimonies and 1200 photographs documenting its history from 1922 to 1959:

A third photographic exhibition held at Swansea Museum in summer 2008 was 'manned' by ex-patients and staff who also took part with Carole Reeves in a 30-minute BBC Radio Wales programme, 'Bed rest, pine trees and fresh air: Welsh sanatoria'. The project was awarded a Heritage Lottery Grant under the Awards for All Wales scheme to produce a book, published on 1 May 2009 and downloadable by clicking on the cover. The book was shortlisted for the Medical Journalists Association Open Book Award, 2010. 

'The Children of Craig-y-nos' was featured on BBC's The One Show on 16 and 17 April 2013.
