Michael Sheen: Steelworks the 'North Star' for Port Talbot

Growing up in Port Talbot, the steelworks played a huge part in actor Michael Sheen's life.

As a boy, he would play football in the shadow of the plant. And he admits it could be a frightening place, describing it as "dark and malevolent".

But it took on a different persona at night with its lights providing "comfort".

'Michael Sheen: The fight for my steel town', BBC1 Wales at 20:00 BST on Wednesday, 8 June, and on the BBC iPlayer.
