Drinking Culture Voxpop: Misrepresented?

The drinking culture in Cardiff has come under fire in recent weeks, thanks to material such as ‘The Valleys’ and ‘Cardiff after dark’.

The recent MTV show, ‘The Valleys’ has had a host of mixed reviews after the pilot aired recently. It has shown youngsters from the Valleys coming to Cardiff to apparently make something of them selves. There have been numerous complaints as to the show’s misrepresentation of life in Cardiff, specifically its nightlife.

MP Chris Bryant has been quoted as saying, ‘It’s all about people getting very drunk and being as deliberately outrageous as they possibly can.’
