Patients Reunion - 2012

This was a truly amazing evening - thanks to Roy Harry, Sylvia Moore and a team of helpers.
 Even BBC Wales turned up to film this reunion of "the children of Craig-y-nos”. For Craig-y-nos was one of the rare children’s TB sanatoriums and along with medical historian Carole Reeves we reconstructed 40 years of missing Welsh history in the book The Children of Craig-y-nos.
Tonight some of those children now in their 60s 70s and 80s gathered together in this remote castle, former home of opera diva Adelina Patti, for their third reunion. 

Far from interest diminishing in the castle and the children it is stronger than ever. I sat between a Hungarian filmmaker and a BBC scriptwriter and there was another writer at the table busy working on a script too. 

Suddenly the story of The Children of Craig-y-no’s is "hot”.

Over 70 people turned up and there was a presentation to Nurse Glen too.
