“Close-up” radio programme with Huw Beynon

Five trade unionists who were Ford shop stewards from the time of the book “Working for Ford” discuss the books findings with the author.  Visit the “Close-up” page to listen to the program.

“The meeting took place at the Garston Hotel and was chaired by Tony Lane of Liverpool University and then Professor at Cardiff. Two of the stewards (Frank Banton and Ronnie Walsh) have since died and I spoke at Frank’s  funeral. I found a copy of my oration just  yesterday. Eddie Roberts and Gerry Flaherty became officers of the union”.
