_Capture Wales / Cipolwg ar Gymru

Digital Stories are short, personal tales from the heart – multimedia sonnets from the people.

“In a Digital Story, photographs discover the talkies, and the stories told assemble in the ether as pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, a gaggle of invisible histories which, when viewed together, tell the bigger story of our time, the story that defines who we are.”

Daniel Meadows, Producer, in Watershed’s IdeasMart

In 2001, BBC Wales launched the Capture Wales digital storytelling project, adapting a methodology brought to the BBC by Daniel Meadows that had been developed at the Center for Digital Storytelling in Berkeley, California. The Capture Wales team held workshops in village halls, schools, libraries, miners’ institutes, and other local facilities around Wales. Over the course of five days the team facilitated a mixed-ability group of ten people, many completely new to computers, working together in a portable multimedia lab to create two-minute autobiographical stories, often drawing on images from their family albums. Between 2001 and 2007 hundreds of stories were made in English and Welsh. All the stories were published on the BBC’s Capture Wales/Cipolwg ar Gymru website and many were broadcast on BBC Wales TV. Meanwhile, the team worked with partners to support the development of a digital storytelling sector in Wales.
