About this app

Picturing Our Past / Fframio'n Gorffennol brings to vivid life the history of Welsh film and television.

Its five chapters follow the compelling story from early pioneering silent film making, through the coming of sound, up to the television and then digital era. Each chapter is illustrated with five film clips from the appropriate period.

The app is written and compiled by award-winning director Colin Thomas and Iola Baines, Moving Image Curator at the National Library of Wales Screen and Sound Archive.


Daw Picturing Our Past / Fframio'n Gorffennol â hanes ffilm a theledu Cymru yn fyw o flaen ein llygaid.

Mewn pum pennod sy’n cynnwys pum clip ffilm yr un, mae’r ap yn olrhain y stori gyfareddol - o gyfnod arloesol y ffilmiau mud, drwy ddyfodiad sain ac ymlaen i gyfnod y teledu a’r oes ddigidol.

Ysgrifennwyd yr ap gan y cyfarwyddwr arobryn Colin Thomas a Iola Baines, Curadur Delweddau Symudol Archif Sgrin a Sain Llyfrgell Genedleaethol Cymru.
