The town of Merthyr Tydfil has become a byword for poverty and deprivation.

The media and politicians have used the town to illustrate many negative aspects of society: crime, unemployment and sickness.

But do the facts support the reputation?

Earlier this year Wales This Week and ITV Wales reporter Hannah Thomas, who comes from the town, went in search of  ‘the real Merthyr Tydfil’.

The programme is still available on-line here.
