Craig-y-Nos Castle TB survivors share memories

A remarkable reunion has been held at Craig-y-Nos Castle in the upper Swansea Valley.

The castle, once the home of opera singer Adelina Patti, was an isolation hospital for children with TB for nearly 40 years in the decades after she died.

Some of the patients were given only hours to live when they arrived.

On Thursday night, 70 of the children who survived the disease gathered to exchange memories.

Gilbert John reports.
