Some years ago in an act of desperation, Maria Burgwyn chained herself to the town hall railings in Pontypridd, to draw attention to the awful conditions on her council estate. Since then, Maria has literally “come alive”. She has gone on to help others with their housing campaigns and in May 1983 came very close to being elected to the local council.

This film is of historical interest but the issues raised are still current.
