Homage to Bart O' Farrell

Going to be presenting at FOSS4G on Thursday in Swansea at the University of Wales Trinity St David and realised this institute was originally called 'West Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education (Wiggy) as we called it then back in the 80s where I was a student in Graphic Design.  On reflection... I wondered what happened to some of those lecturer's and in particular Bart O'Farrell. In homage to this great welsh artist and character I'm posting the only interview I can find of his career while it remains online. https://cornishbirdblog.com/bart-ofarrell-wizard-on-the-lizard-full-unedited-interview/
