One of the Miss Wales 2010 regional qualifiers – Miss Merthyr Tydfil - was the subject of a BBC documentary this month as part of the Planet Wales series.
The programme followed the competition and a number of the contestants and also talked to ladies who had won beauty pageants in the town back in the 1950s and 1960s.
Paula Abbandonato, Miss Wales organiser, said: “I’d like to congratulate all our Miss Merthyr Tydfil 2010 finalists for taking part in the programme. They came across as interesting, ambitious young women who want to make a difference and have fun, which is exactly what the Miss Wales experience is all about.
“We’ve had terrific feedback from all corners of the country since the programme was broadcast and would like to thank the programme makers for the story they helped us tell.”
