0:00:300:00:34

-From tonight until Friday,

0:00:390:00:45

-I'm at the Fron Goch Garden Centre.

0:00:450:00:48

-January isn't a barren month

-for the garden...

0:00:490:00:53

-for this season.

0:00:530:00:56

-There's also the story

-of the Plygain at Dinas Mawddwy.

0:00:570:01:01

-Here's a quick taster for you.

0:01:010:01:05

-# Thus, thus was holy Jesus dressed

0:01:050:01:10

-# Beneath tortures, our great

-failures, to pains on the hilltop #

0:01:100:01:22

-I've come to Ysgol Dyffryn y Glowyr

-to learn more about the Mari Lwyd.

0:01:240:01:30

-All of these people are taking part

-in a unique event...

0:01:310:01:35

-..of performing karate next to

-Sgwd yr Eira in the Brecon Beacons.

0:01:350:01:40

-Later, they'll bathe in the water

-to start the new year in style.

0:01:400:01:44

-Back in the studio, we don't have

-one, two or three guests...

0:01:440:01:48

-..but four very familiar faces

-to S4C's viewers.

0:01:480:01:51

-Emma Walford

-and Trystan Ellis-Morris...

0:01:510:01:54

-..have a plea for those couples

-who got engaged over Christmas...

0:01:540:01:58

-..to take part in the next series

-of Priodas Pum Mil.

0:01:580:02:01

-We also celebrate 20 years

-of S4C's Ffermio...

0:02:020:02:04

-..with the former presenter, Sulwyn

-Thomas and producer, Richard Rees.

0:02:050:02:09

-We start at the Fron Goch Garden

-Centre near Caernarfon with Gerallt.

0:02:140:02:18

-Good evening, Gerallt.

0:02:190:02:22

-Good evening to you all.

0:02:220:02:26

-Welcome back to the

-Fron Goch Garden Centre.

0:02:260:02:30

-It's like the Garden of Eden here.

0:02:300:02:33

-On Friday night, I was at the

-Plygain Service in Dinas Mawddwy.

0:02:330:02:38

-Let's hear more about the Plygain

-in Dinas Mawddwy.

0:02:390:02:42

-# They will sing

-in the fields of heaven

0:02:420:02:46

-# They will sing

-in the fields of heaven

0:02:470:02:51

-# They sing all their days

-for the Lord #

0:02:510:02:57

-# We sing to the Lord, our God

0:02:570:03:01

-# To declare the promise

-of our Saviour #

0:03:010:03:06

-# We will try to find it

-before the end of our times

0:03:070:03:13

-# Our days will come #

0:03:130:03:16

-After the singing,

-comes the feasting.

0:03:160:03:21

-The supper is just as important as

-the Plygain, Reverend Roland Barnes.

0:03:210:03:25

-It isn't the case for me

-because I enjoy the singing!

0:03:250:03:29

-Tonight, you sang for the first time

-with a party of Welsh learners...

0:03:300:03:34

-..which was quite a challenge.

0:03:340:03:37

-Yes, but we all enjoyed ourselves.

0:03:370:03:42

-In our final rehearsal...

0:03:420:03:45

-..I told them to listen to the

-person standing next to them...

0:03:460:03:50

-..so that we could stay in harmony.

0:03:510:03:54

-I also told them that we were

-singing in order to praise the Lord.

0:03:540:03:58

-The third and most important thing

-was to enjoy the singing.

0:03:580:04:02

-# We will sing joyfully

0:04:020:04:05

-# Praise to Mary's child #

0:04:050:04:10

-Is that a good sandwich,

-Magwen Pughe?

0:04:100:04:13

-It's wonderful!

0:04:130:04:16

-Whilst you're munching away and

-as a member of Parti Darowen...

0:04:170:04:21

-..what are your thoughts of the

-Plygain service at Dinas Mawddwy?

0:04:220:04:25

-It's wonderful

-and we enjoy it every year.

0:04:260:04:29

-It was a light-hearted Plygain

-I love coming here every year...

0:04:300:04:35

-..and they will support us

-at Darowen next Monday night.

0:04:350:04:39

-# We put our hope in your healing

-and a full live to all mankind #

0:04:400:04:48

-This is thirsty work but

-they deserve their refreshments.

0:04:480:04:55

-Yes, and it's a social event where

-we can take stock of our lives.

0:04:550:05:01

-People also enjoy chatting

-over their supper.

0:05:010:05:06

-It's wonderful to see children

-singing at the Plygain too.

0:05:060:05:13

-After they have grown up, I'm sure

-they will remember the experience...

0:05:140:05:19

-..of singing a carol

-in a Plygain service.

0:05:190:05:23

-# Therefore, sinner, hurry,

-as thou art, as thou art,

0:05:230:05:30

-# To ask for his Sanctuary,

-as thou art #

0:05:300:05:37

-Apart from your voice...

0:05:370:05:40

-..this little red book is just

-as important at a Plygain service.

0:05:410:05:44

-Yes, this is essential and I'm sure

-I've had it for at least 40 years.

0:05:450:05:51

-I first used it when Robert Ifans

-was at Maesmor.

0:05:520:05:57

-He told me to sing as a tenor

-with the Mawddwy party.

0:05:580:06:02

-# We should worship him

-and remain to do so #

0:06:030:06:09

-What has the singing

-been like tonight?

0:06:090:06:12

-It's been great

-and it was an excellent Plygain.

0:06:120:06:16

-It was just the thing

-to finish the season.

0:06:160:06:20

-I remember going to a Plygain

-at Llanymawddwy...

0:06:200:06:24

-..and there was 15

-before the first half was over.

0:06:240:06:27

-They went to smoke in the cemetery

-during the break.

0:06:280:06:31

-It wasn't like that tonight.

0:06:310:06:32

-It wasn't like that tonight.

-

-No, not at all.

0:06:320:06:34

-It's been a memorable Plygain.

0:06:340:06:35

-It's been a memorable Plygain.

-

-Yes, it's one I'll remember.

0:06:350:06:38

-It's important

-to retain these old traditions.

0:06:390:06:42

-# As thou art, as thou art

0:06:420:06:47

-# For that, come promptly

0:06:470:06:52

-# As thou art #

0:06:520:06:57

-We'll be closing the programme

-with a special Plygain carol.

0:06:590:07:02

-At 9.30pm on S4C, there's a special

-episode of the series, Ffermio...

0:07:030:07:08

-..featuring former presenters

-and archive footage...

0:07:080:07:12

-..to mark 20 years of the series.

0:07:120:07:15

-There's about two hours

-before the celebrations...

0:07:150:07:18

-..so we're joined by one of its

-early presenters, Sulwyn Thomas...

0:07:180:07:23

-..and the series producer,

-Richard Rees.

0:07:230:07:26

-Welcome to you both.

0:07:260:07:28

-Thank you.

0:07:280:07:29

-I'm sure there's going to be a lot

-of celebrations to mark 20 years.

0:07:290:07:33

-Yes, that's right.

0:07:330:07:36

-You were the first producer.

0:07:370:07:39

-Yes, that's right.

0:07:400:07:51

-There was about 800 tapes

-to look through...

0:07:510:08:01

-..and it was great to visit

-all the people.

0:08:010:08:05

-We had a lot of presenters.

0:08:050:08:14

-We had a lot of fun working

-together.

0:08:140:08:17

-You must have some wonderful

-memories.

0:08:170:08:21

-Yes, that's right.

0:08:210:08:23

-Ffermio was a service for farmers.

0:08:230:08:25

-Before we chat any further, let's

-enjoy some of your archive footage.

0:08:250:08:30

-Hello and welcome to a special

-edition of Ffermio and our forum.

0:08:340:08:39

-Statistics show that BSE

-is finally under control.

0:08:390:08:43

-It was at its worst in 1992

-with over 4,000 cases in Wales.

0:08:430:08:48

-It's rumoured that 500,000 people

-will take part in the march.

0:08:490:08:54

-There's a feeling that these numbers

-are not important...

0:08:540:08:59

-..but the protestors want everyone

-to listen to those in the country.

0:08:590:09:04

-Did that array of clips stir up

-some fond memories for you?

0:09:160:09:20

-Yes, it certainly did.

0:09:210:09:23

-You were the first presenter,

-Sulwyn.

0:09:240:09:30

-I think I looked much younger!

0:09:300:09:34

-It was great to work on Ffermio.

0:09:350:09:43

-None of the three presenters

-on the first series...

0:09:430:09:47

-..hadn't worked in agriculture.

0:09:470:09:55

-I think the programme

-proved to be a success.

0:09:550:09:58

-We had advisors on the programme.

0:09:590:10:03

-It was a very clever move.

0:10:040:10:09

-We wanted to show that agriculture

-was a business.

0:10:090:10:17

-A lot of people

-think of rural Wales...

0:10:170:10:24

-..as being like something

-you see on a chocolate box!

0:10:250:10:36

-We wanted to prove

-that it was a business.

0:10:360:10:41

-It was the only programme about

-agriculture on the channel.

0:10:420:10:52

-The programme is highly respected

-all over Britain.

0:10:520:10:57

-People could use the subtitles.

0:10:570:11:03

-They could learn about agriculture.

0:11:030:11:07

-Gerallt was one of the presenters

-on Ffermio.

0:11:080:11:11

-Gerallt is at the Fron Goch

-Garden Centre for us tonight.

0:11:110:11:22

-I'm sure you have fond memories.

0:11:220:11:32

-Hello to Richard and Sulwyn.

0:11:330:11:37

-I also remember Terwyn Davies.

0:11:370:11:42

-He works with Tommo

-on Radio Cymru now.

0:11:430:11:54

-I'll never forget his impersonation

-of Sulwyn Thomas.

0:11:540:12:05

-He would shut his mouth as soon

-as Sulwyn entered the room.

0:12:050:12:15

-Sulwyn never heard the

-impersonation.

0:12:150:12:20

-He highly respected you.

0:12:200:12:25

-Gerallt mentioned Terwyn.

0:12:250:12:37

-It would be great to hear

-that impersonation.

0:12:390:12:44

-We could use Terwyn

-for voiceovers...

0:12:440:12:50

-..when Sulwyn wasn't available!

0:12:500:13:02

-I remember when there was the

-Foot and Mouth outbreak.

0:13:030:13:08

-We had to make two live programmes

-a week.

0:13:080:13:18

-We had people on hand

-to answer telephones...

0:13:180:13:24

-..to those farmers

-who were very worried.

0:13:250:13:33

-I'm sure there's going to be a lot

-of celebrations to mark 20 years.

0:13:340:13:41

-There's so much material

-in the programme tonight.

0:13:410:13:46

-We've got a lot of our highlights.

0:13:460:13:51

-You can see all the presenters.

0:13:510:13:55

-Am I there?

0:13:550:13:56

-It's 35 years to the day since Wales

-was covered with a blanket of snow.

0:13:560:14:00

-The Blizzard of 1982 lasted 48 hours

-and the country grinded to a halt.

0:14:000:14:04

-Thanks to Bethan Williams

-from Rhiw near Aberdaron...

0:14:040:14:07

-..for sending us a photograph of the

-children enjoying a day off school.

0:14:080:14:16

-The weather is totally different

-35 years later.

0:14:160:14:21

-Earlier, we received a photograph of

-a daffodil...

0:14:220:14:26

-..that flowered

-over weekend in Llandwrog.

0:14:260:14:29

-Thanks to eight-year-old Gwern Elis

-Roberts for the photograph.

0:14:290:14:33

-Temperatures are set to drop over

-the coming days with snow forecast.

0:14:340:14:37

-You could have days off school like

-the children of Aberdaron in 1982.

0:14:380:14:48

-Sulwyn remembers the snow of 1982.

0:14:480:14:52

-Yes, I do.

0:14:520:14:55

-You had to walk to work.

0:14:550:15:05

-Yes, I had to walk to work

-for a week in Swansea.

0:15:050:15:14

-I remember getting the train

-from Carmarthen to Swansea.

0:15:140:15:21

-Richard had to walk from Llanelli

-to Swansea.

0:15:220:15:27

-It's about 15 miles!

0:15:270:15:35

-We had a skeleton staff that day.

0:15:350:15:42

-It was the time that Radio Cymru

-became a real service.

0:15:430:15:52

-People used the service

-to share information.

0:15:520:15:58

-It was great to be a part of it.

0:15:590:16:03

-We had calls from

-all over the place.

0:16:030:16:06

-Thank you.

0:16:070:16:09

-There's still plenty to enjoy

-in the next part of the programme.

0:16:090:16:13

-Yvonne closes the doors of the most

-famous garage in the Aeron Valley.

0:16:130:16:17

-Those who got engaged over Christmas

-could take part in Priodas Pum Mil.

0:16:180:16:25

-Emma and Trystan have

-all the details for your shortly.

0:16:250:16:29

-We also reveal the lucky winner

-of our New Year's competition.

0:16:290:16:33

-A television or iPad could be on its

-way to you by the end of the night.

0:16:330:16:37

0:17:170:17:22

-He's owned a garage for 30 years...

0:17:220:17:26

-..and loves nothing more

-than sitting behind the wheel.

0:17:260:17:29

-Yvonne went to hear

-his interesting story.

0:17:290:17:32

-In 1989, Tim Davies opened

-this garage in Ystrad Aeron...

0:17:340:17:41

-..but he marks the end of an era and

-closes its doors for the last time.

0:17:410:17:46

-He's a petrolhead with fond memories

-of being a professional racer.

0:17:460:17:52

-I started racing cars in 1977...

0:17:550:17:57

-..after entering a competition

-with the Western Mail.

0:17:570:18:02

-The advert read "Drive yourself

-around Brands Hatch!"

0:18:020:18:06

-I won the competition...

0:18:070:18:09

-..and was named the Brands Hatch

-Racing School Driver of the Year.

0:18:100:18:13

-I drove a Formula 1 car and I hadn't

-driven a lot so it was exciting.

0:18:130:18:19

-Tim became a tutor at Brands Hatch

-and trained various celebrities...

0:18:200:18:27

-..such as Geoff Capes, Lucinda Green

-and Shakin' Stevens.

0:18:270:18:32

-It was very interesting

-to teach them and they enjoyed it.

0:18:320:18:37

-They spent the weekend at Brands

-Hatch and it was like a holiday.

0:18:370:18:43

-I got to teach them

-and it was a great honour for me.

0:18:430:18:47

-He won British Championships...

0:18:470:18:51

-..and was third in the Wales

-Sports Personality of the Year.

0:18:510:18:55

-With the correct funding, he could

-have been a Formula 1 driver.

0:18:560:19:01

-My best year was in 1983 when I won

-the Formula 4 2000 single seaters...

0:19:010:19:08

-..and won about 15 races that year.

0:19:080:19:14

-There was also the Formula 3000 with

-the first street race in Birmingham.

0:19:140:19:19

-It was a great time of my life

-that I thoroughly enjoyed.

0:19:190:19:25

-He also enjoys restoring

-classic cars and tractors.

0:19:260:19:31

-His contribution to this community

-is highly appreciated.

0:19:310:19:35

-He built most of the garage

-himself...

0:19:360:19:40

-..and restored all the cars

-and tractors.

0:19:400:19:44

-His work is excellent.

0:19:440:19:48

-Tim's a real perfectionist

-and always has been.

0:19:480:19:53

-When I worked in the garage

-in the 1960s...

0:19:540:19:58

-..the Lotus Cortina

-was the bee's knees!

0:19:580:20:01

-I'm delighted to have two of them.

0:20:020:20:05

-The cars were only fit for scrap

-but I decided to restore them.

0:20:050:20:13

-My first Lotus Cortina took

-two and a half years to restore...

0:20:130:20:19

-..but the tractors

-have taken many years.

0:20:200:20:24

-I knew I'd eventually finish them

-and they sit in the showroom now.

0:20:240:20:30

-How did it feel to get back into

-the driving seat five years ago?

0:20:340:20:42

-I won the Touring Car Championship

-in 2013 and 2014.

0:20:420:20:47

-It was great to know that I was

-still able to do it and it was fun!

0:20:470:20:57

-When the green lights come on

-and the race starts...

0:20:570:21:04

-..you forget everything

-and focus on winning.

0:21:040:21:07

-Tim will not be in the shop

-and garage in the future...

0:21:080:21:11

-..but I'm sure he'll still

-be behind the wheel!

0:21:120:21:16

-I've been here for a few years

-but it's time to move on.

0:21:160:21:20

-I'm going to enjoy my time off

-and nothing beats racing a car!

0:21:200:21:25

-Good luck to Tim

-with his retirement.

0:21:340:21:36

-I've got another interesting fact

-for you.

0:21:370:21:39

-Tim drove the car in the film,

-Silver Dream Racer...

0:21:390:21:43

-..with the actor and singer,

-David Essex.

0:21:430:21:55

-We've had a tweet

-from one of our viewers.

0:21:590:22:05

-He enjoyed the chat about Ffermio.

0:22:050:22:08

-Research suggests that the average

-cost of a wedding is 24,000.

0:22:090:22:12

-How would you like someone to

-arrange your wedding and pay for it?

0:22:120:22:16

-This is exactly what S4C

-are offering in Priodas Pum Mil.

0:22:160:22:22

-But as the title suggests,

-the wedding can only cost 5,000.

0:22:220:22:26

-If you missed the first series...

0:22:260:22:28

-..let's take a look at clip

-of Carolyn and Gerallt's wedding.

0:22:280:22:31

-..to love...

0:22:350:22:37

-..and to cherish...

0:22:370:22:40

-..for all the days of our lives.

0:22:400:22:42

-You can now kiss the bride.

0:22:420:22:46

-CHEERING

0:22:460:22:49

-GASPS

0:22:520:22:54

-Mr Potato Head!

0:22:550:22:58

-It's Mr Potato Head.

0:22:580:23:02

-Shall we celebrate?

-I'm off!

0:23:020:23:06

-From start to finish,

-it's been absolutely brilliant.

0:23:120:23:17

-It couldn't have been better.

-No, not at all.

0:23:170:23:21

-The series is looking for couples

-to take part in the second series.

0:23:260:23:30

-Our next guests are going to sell

-the whole concept to you.

0:23:300:23:33

-It's the series presenters, Emma

-Walford and Trystan Ellis-Morris.

0:23:340:23:38

-Welcome to you both.

0:23:380:23:39

-Thank you.

0:23:390:23:45

-When you signed the contract...

0:23:450:23:55

-..did you know how much work would

-be involved?

0:23:560:24:00

-We were truly hands-on.

0:24:000:24:04

-We did well.

0:24:050:24:08

-The company calls you and

-asks you to take part...

0:24:210:24:26

-..and I thought it would be easy...

0:24:260:24:30

-..but that wasn't the case.

0:24:300:24:35

-It's been incredible.

0:24:350:24:39

-We got to meet a lot of people.

0:24:390:24:48

-People enjoy seeing it

-when things go wrong.

0:24:480:25:00

-Yes, and Geraint's friend played

-a nasty trick on him.

0:25:010:25:08

-They gave him a suit

-that was far too small...

0:25:080:25:14

-..and the colour wasn't one

-that he wanted.

0:25:140:25:18

-He broke down into tears.

0:25:180:25:24

-I had to make out

-that I didn't know anything.

0:25:240:25:35

-It was all a joke.

0:25:350:25:39

-You must be honoured to be involved.

0:25:390:25:43

-It's an honour to be a part of these

-people's lives.

0:25:430:25:48

-It's a television series...

0:25:480:25:51

-..but this is someone's wedding.

0:25:520:25:55

-You have to forget

-that it's a television programme.

0:25:580:26:02

-They have to forget the cameras.

0:26:020:26:09

-I think we did a programme

-in Cardigan and made a cake.

0:26:090:26:14

-We didn't have a clue...

0:26:140:26:21

-..that we would have to make

-the cake.

0:26:220:26:26

-Thank heavens for taking the cakes

-out of the tins!

0:26:260:26:31

-We had to make three cakes.

0:26:310:26:36

-It was incredible.

0:26:360:26:40

-The cake was delicious in the end.

0:26:400:26:49

-We want more couples

-for the next series.

0:26:490:26:55

-We've had a great response.

0:26:550:27:02

-All the people from Gwynedd

-want to take part.

0:27:030:27:08

-We want more of a challenge.

0:27:080:27:19

-You don't want too much

-of a challenge.

0:27:190:27:26

-Yes, and we've had the traditional

-weddings.

0:27:260:27:33

-We also had to get Cardigan Castle

-at a cost price.

0:27:330:27:40

-Gerallt and Alun can remind us

-of their stories tonight.

0:27:420:27:46

-After the break, join me and the

-pupils of Ysgol Dyffryn y Glowyr...

0:27:460:27:50

-..as we learn more

-about the Mari Lwyd.

-The Christmas season is over.

0:29:180:29:21

-There's a sea of colour

-in the centre.

0:29:210:29:28

-Yes, there's plenty of colour

-for your garden.

0:29:280:29:32

-You can have so many colours.

0:29:330:29:36

-It's great to see them in January.

0:29:370:29:43

-We've got some great flowers

-in the pots.

0:29:430:29:50

-The cyclamen are great flowers.

0:29:500:29:55

-You should dead-head them...

0:29:550:30:00

-..and they will last a while.

0:30:010:30:08

-There's also the primroses and

-the daffodils.

0:30:080:30:13

-There's a garden in a pot!

0:30:130:30:19

-You could have it in your porch.

0:30:190:30:29

-What could people have

-in their gardens?

0:30:290:30:33

-This plant is great.

0:30:340:30:39

-It has a lot of pollen.

0:30:390:30:51

-It isn't too late

-to plant some bulbs.

0:30:540:30:59

-No, it isn't too late

-to plant bulbs.

0:30:590:31:02

-Don't worry as you can plant them

-in pots.

0:31:070:31:10

-What about this exhibition?

0:31:110:31:15

-It looks wonderful.

0:31:150:31:21

-These plants are wonderful.

0:31:210:31:25

0:31:250:31:30

0:31:300:31:36

-These flowers are wonderful

-for any garden.

0:31:370:31:44

-They can survive

-the January weather.

0:31:450:31:53

-They come back year in year out.

0:31:530:31:58

-People struggle in the garden.

0:31:580:32:03

-A lot of people will have Christmas

-trees in their gardens...

0:32:030:32:07

-..that are looking worse for wear.

0:32:070:32:10

-What should people do with those

-Christmas trees?

0:32:110:32:16

-You can get them recycled.

0:32:160:32:19

-You can also put it through

-a garden shredder.

0:32:190:32:28

-You can use it as fertilizer

-for your gardens.

0:32:280:32:31

-Back to you in Llanelli.

0:33:140:33:21

0:33:210:33:24

0:33:280:33:30

-The Welsh language initiative

-of Neath and Port Talbot...

0:33:300:33:34

-# To ask for permission to sing #

0:33:550:33:59

-Most of us are familiar with the

-Welsh tradition of the Mari Lwyd.

0:34:000:34:04

-How much do the pupils of

-Ysgol Gymraeg Dyffryn y Glowyr know?

0:34:040:34:08

-# To ask for permission to sing #

0:34:090:34:15

-A lot of children enjoy

-a Welsh medium education.

0:34:160:34:20

-Their knowledge of Welsh culture

-is another question.

0:34:200:34:24

-We're working with schools

-to promote these Welsh traditions...

0:34:240:34:28

-..and educate people about their

-culture and Welsh identity.

0:34:280:34:32

-Happy New Year to you all!

0:34:320:34:35

-We wanted as many people as possible

-to see the Mari Lwyd...

0:34:360:34:40

-.so we started with the pubs

-before moving to the schools.

0:34:400:34:45

-I didn't know anything

-about the Mari Lwyd before today...

0:34:540:34:59

-..but I've learnt loads and

-it's a symbol of a happy new year.

0:34:590:35:06

-They come to the school every year

-to sing and dance.

0:35:070:35:11

-They use a horse's skull

-as it's a symbol of strength.

0:35:110:35:17

-I really enjoyed today.

0:35:170:35:22

-I really enjoyed today.

-

-And we did a lot of singing.

0:35:220:35:24

-# Fa, la, la, la, la,

-la, la, la, la #

0:35:250:35:31

-This week, we'll visit 15 schools

-and meet over 1,500 children.

0:35:310:35:36

-We hope people come to meet

-the Mari Lwyd and learn about her.

0:35:360:35:44

-The children never forget

-seeing the Mari Lwyd.

0:35:460:35:50

-This isn't something from the past

-but is alive and well today.

0:35:510:35:57

-It's important to safeguard

-these traditions for the future.

0:35:580:36:03

-# Happy New Year to you #

0:36:350:36:43

-I can't think of a better way

-to start the year...

0:36:440:36:47

-..than through battling the

-elements.

-It's a fantastic way to start

-Welcome back.

0:37:220:37:24

-Thank you to the Priordy Chapel

-in Carmarthen for this photograph.

0:37:240:37:29

-Yesterday, one of its loyal member,

-Ffion Parsons...

0:37:290:37:32

-..cut her hair to raise funds

-for the Little Princess Trust.

0:37:330:37:37

-The charity provides wigs for small

-children who have lost their hair...

0:37:370:37:42

-..as a result of medical procedures.

0:37:420:37:45

-Ffion grew her hair for three years

-and there was enough for three wigs.

0:37:460:37:50

-Ffion was also being sponsored...

0:37:500:37:53

-..and the funds went to Myeloma UK

-in memory of her grandmother.

0:37:530:37:57

-Well done to Ffion...

0:37:570:37:59

-..and thanks to Priordy Chapel

-for sharing the story with us.

0:37:590:38:03

-Do you have a tradition that you

-like to do every new year?

0:38:030:38:06

-Some go for a family walk or

-New Year's Day or meet with friends.

0:38:070:38:11

-What about exercising under

-a cold, wintry waterfall?

0:38:110:38:15

-Yesterday, a group of people did

-just that in the Brecon Beacons.

0:38:150:38:21

-Daf Wyn was there to see it all.

0:38:220:38:24

-The Brecon Beacons is one of the

-three national parks of Wales.

0:38:260:38:32

-Within the Brecon Beacons and close

-to Aberdare is Waterfall Country.

0:38:330:38:39

-The most famous is Sgwd yr Eira that

-attracts nature experts and walkers.

0:38:410:38:47

-At the start of every new year,

-it hosts a very unusual event.

0:38:470:38:53

-Our journey starts in the

-village of Penderyn...

0:38:550:38:59

-..where a group of people have come

-together to do karate.

0:38:590:39:05

-We all get together on the first

-Sunday of the New Year...

0:39:070:39:11

-..as karate groups from around Wales

-and further afield.

0:39:110:39:16

-It sets us up for a hard year

-of training...

0:39:160:39:20

-..and no other session will be as

-hard as this under the waterfall.

0:39:210:39:27

-With everyone eager and ready to go,

-to 40 minute journey began.

0:39:300:39:35

-First, we had to run half way...

0:39:350:39:38

-..before stopping to do some kihon

-or striking and kicking training.

0:39:380:39:43

-After 20 minutes of physicality,

-we moved on to the waterfall...

0:39:450:39:49

-..but we had to deal with the

-slippery uneven path first.

0:39:500:39:54

-I do the waterfall karate as after

-eating too much at Christmas...

0:39:590:40:05

-..it can be great to start

-the New Year off with a bang.

0:40:050:40:13

-It can be difficult to pull yourself

-off the sofa, but we come every year

0:40:130:40:19

-There are people here from London,

-Manchester, Germany and Ireland...

0:40:190:40:24

-..who enjoy coming to make friends

-and to encourage us to train again.

0:40:240:40:29

-All present were trying

-to focus the mind in peace.

0:40:320:40:40

-For those with a black belt, it was

-an opportunity to enter the water.

0:40:420:40:47

-Then came the big moment,

-every person would step forward...

0:40:480:40:55

-..to bathe in the waterfall.

0:40:550:40:57

-Everyone is practising their

-punches in a mindful way.

0:40:580:41:06

-How do you feel after doing that?

0:41:070:41:09

-I feel great now,

-but in the beginning it was tough.

0:41:100:41:19

-We try and push our bodies to the

-extreme in time for any battles...

0:41:200:41:30

-..as our bodies will have already

-have been pushed to the max.

0:41:300:41:35

-It nurtures perseverance,

-keeps us fit and inspires us.

0:41:350:41:39

-It's cold, but fantastic.

0:41:390:41:42

-How did it go?

0:41:420:41:43

-How did it go?

-

-Great, it was very cold, but good.

0:41:430:41:48

-Was it difficult?

0:41:480:41:50

-No, it was fantastic and

-many of us enjoyed it.

0:41:510:41:58

-I've never done this before,

-I was nervous, it was cold.

0:41:580:42:04

-I thought it might be nice, but no.

0:42:040:42:09

-I've come from Germany, after

-hearing about these crazy people...

0:42:090:42:16

-..training under a waterfall and

-I wanted to be one of them.

0:42:160:42:20

-It was a great experience, slightly

-cold, but otherwise, lovely.

0:42:210:42:25

-I'm ready for the New Year training.

0:42:270:42:30

-Are you looking forward to a shower?

0:42:300:42:31

-Are you looking forward to a shower?

-

-Yes.

0:42:310:42:33

-There's no better way to start the

-year than battling the elements.

0:42:330:42:38

-We're here whatever the weather and

-look forward to the year ahead.

0:42:380:42:43
