Wil Aaron is a pioneer in the world of television, having worked as an independent director and producer. He established the television company ‘Ffilmiau’r Nant’ in 1976, which produced such programmes as Hel Straeon, Sgorio and C’mon Midffild for S4C. Before that, he worked as a director for the BBC programmes 24 Hours and Midweek. He will talk about his experiences in war zones such as Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. The reporter in many of the films he shot there was Max Hastings, at the start of a remarkable career which culminated in the editorship of The Telegraph. The talk coincides with the publication of Max’s definitive history of the war, Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy: 1945-1975.
