Abstract

The research shows that the actuality of being 'captured' as a part of Capture Wales is neither standard to all participants, nor easy to evaluate in terms of measures of success. Most participants display a positive attitude to the process that is often explained by the perceived therapeutic nature of the workshop, and as a result of the experience, many participants enjoy a relationship with technology that is vastly advanced from their prior use. But on the whole the project has not changed Wales into a nation of Digital Storytellers. The limited numbers of people involved, coupled with the fairly limited space allowed by the BBC for the stories' display mean that the true public service'ness' of the project must be called into question.
