Vincent Kane was the first presenter of Week In Week Out

Times have changed since BBC Cymru Wales began broadcasting its current affairs programme Week In Week Out in 1964.

Now the programme's first presenter, Vincent Kane, returns to update some of the biggest stories and revisit people featured in earlier programmes.

Richard Burton, Sir Geraint Evans and the Kilgetty faith healer all feature.

Week In Week Out Revisited looks at the 60s and 70s in this first of the three programmes.

Hippies, mini-skirts and a time when women wore hats are featured.


Vincent Kane comments on some of the stories he covered, including the 'new threat' of hippy culture in which the programme asked, 'Is there anything sinister in their non-conformity?' Not to mention an examination of the 'new craze' of going abroad for holidays.

The programme also revisits highlights of some of the big name interviews, including one with Sir Geraint Evans.

And then there was the time when Vincent Kane and actor Richard Burton dropped into the local pub at Pontrhydyfen. Vincent returns to find out what some of the characters who featured in the series are up to now.

You can see the first in the series on the iPlayer until May 25.
