#TheCrown captures the awful scope of the Aberfan tragedy, but the story of the yearslong neglect that led to the disaster isn’t fully told

I’m a dyed in the wool anti-royal republican. Still, I love ‘The Crown’; it’s such a well made drama. But the minute you see the kids in the Aberfan ep, when you see ACTUAL PEOPLE, you think: Why am I supposed to give a shit about these castle dwellers? The conceit dies, no?
