TV Show directory - Pen Talar

1962. Sling-shots, go-karts and bazooka chewing-gum are the stuff of the lives of Defi Lewis and his best friend Doug. A blissfully innocent, Arcadian childhood in rural west Wales. That is, until they witnessed something that robbed them of their innocence, on the same day the Western world lost its innocence, with the assassination of JFK in Dallas, Texas.

Pen Talar is S4C's major autumn drama; an epic 9-part series that follows Defi and Doug from that fateful November day, over half a century, through one of the most turbulent eras of Welsh history, world history, and of course, their own lives.
