Newcastle Emlyn is a town straddling the counties of Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire in west Wales. The town takes its name from the cantref of Emlyn, which was an administrative district in Medieval Dyfed. The cantref was made part of the Norman March in the 12th century. Residents involved in an accident in the area may need to seek the services of an injury attorney in Newcastle Emlyn to make a claim for compensation.
Injury attorney in Newcastle Emlyn
Most people in Newcastle Emlyn, as with everywhere else in Great Britain, would know who Dame Ester Rantzen is, but in case there are a few who are unsure then here is some information about her. She was born in Berkhamsted in June 1940, the older of two sisters. She was educated in London and then went on to Oxford University, where she performed with the dramatic society. After leaving there, she trained in secretarial skills.
Dame Esther Rantzen began her career working for BBC Radio as a trainee studio manager, before moving into TV in the programme planning department. Her first production job was as a researcher on a late night BBC satire show called BBC3, and this led to her working as a researcher on several current affairs programs.
After working on a consumer program called Braden’s Week, in 1973 she moved to a new program, That’s Life, which initially followed the same format as Braden’s Week. It did change over time and became more investigative, as well as having a funny side to it. That’s Life was one of the most popular TV programmes in the 21 years it ran for, reaching audiences in excess of 18 million.
The campaigns on TV
Dame Esther used the That’s Life programme for several campaigns on behalf of the public, some of which were to lead to changes in the law such as making children’s seatbelts standard in the back of cars, and playground surfaces being made safe. She has also been working hard to make the public aware that they can claim compensation for injuries sustained in an accident that was not their fault, and for this she recommends an injury attorney in Newcastle Emlyn at Accident Advice Helpline.
The other thing that Dame Esther Rantzen will always be remembered for was the creation of ChildLine in 1986, a freephone helpline for children who are distressed about absolutely anything. The ChildLine counsellors are trained to be able to help the children when they have no one else to turn to, and Dame Esther Rantzen is one of the volunteer counsellors. ChildLine was the first of its kind in the world, and now there are over 150 others countries with children’s helplines, all because of Esther.
