-Hello and welcome

-to Thursday's edition of Heno.

0:00:180:00:21

-I'm sure many of us have visited

-a supermarket at some point today.

0:00:220:00:27

-They've become part

-of everyday life.

0:00:270:00:30

-But how much Welsh did you hear

-or see whilst shopping?

0:00:310:00:35

-This question was raised

-at the Senedd earlier today...

0:00:360:00:39

-..as our guest, Meri Huws,

-the Welsh Language Commissioner...

0:00:390:00:42

-..published a report called

-Y Gymraeg Yn Y Fasged Siopa...

0:00:430:00:46

-..or Welsh in the Shopping Basket.

0:00:460:00:48

-Welcome to Heno, Meri.

0:00:490:00:51

-It was a busy day for me.

0:00:550:00:57

-We asked the same question on our

-Facebook and Twitter pages today.

0:01:000:01:04

-We will share your comments

-during the next 30 minutes.

0:01:040:01:08

-And it isn't too late for you

-at home to get in touch.

0:01:080:01:11

-The details are on the screen.

0:01:110:01:14

-Tonight, Yvonne is joined

-by the Treorchy Male Choir.

0:01:140:01:17

-Good evening from Treorchy to...

0:01:170:01:20

-..Sydney, San Francisco,

-Monaco, Toronto.

0:01:200:01:23

-The Treorchy Male Choir has

-performed in all those places.

0:01:230:01:27

-It marks a special milestone

-and you can hear all about it later.

0:01:270:01:33

-Do you fancy a hyni bun

-with your cuppa tonight?

0:01:340:01:37

-You'll only find them in Dolgellau.

0:01:370:01:40

-It's a pity you can't smell the

-delicious aromas in this room.

0:01:440:01:49

-You can also hear more about

-a new musical called Tiger Bay.

0:01:530:01:57

-My name is Louise Harvey

-and I've won a role!

0:01:570:02:01

-I interviewed Louise yesterday and

-she's a little star in the making!

0:02:020:02:07

-It was the end of an era today as

-Whitland's postmasters have retired.

0:02:100:02:15

-Jean and Ithel Parry-Roberts opened

-the local Post Office in the 1960s.

0:02:150:02:19

-The Cardi Bach train was running

-and The Beatles were in the charts.

0:02:200:02:24

-Daf Wyn witnessed the doors close

-for the final time.

0:02:240:02:28

-In 1964,

-Jean and Ithel Parri-Roberts...

0:02:360:02:39

-..opened the Post Office

-on King Edward Street in Whitland.

0:02:400:02:44

-They have enjoyed a happy

-and peaceful time...

0:02:450:02:48

-..but after 53 years of serving the

-community, they are going to retire.

0:02:480:02:54

-I think back

-to when I started 53 years ago.

0:03:000:03:04

-We had to add up everything

-and it was all arithmetic.

0:03:050:03:09

-It was a lot of work at the end

-of the day with all the dockets.

0:03:100:03:15

-Next, came the adding machine

-that had to be used by hand.

0:03:160:03:20

-It wasn't electric so you had

-to insert the docket to print.

0:03:220:03:26

-That was how you did it.

0:03:270:03:29

-Ithel and Jean

-have seen a lot of changes.

0:03:330:03:36

-Shillings and pennies expired

-and then came the computer.

0:03:360:03:41

-It was an easy transition as working

-in a post office is in the blood.

0:03:410:03:46

-Jean's family has worked in a Post

-Office for 250 years between them.

0:03:460:03:52

-My father started 90 years ago.

0:03:540:04:00

-We were five children and all of us

-have worked for the Post Office.

0:04:000:04:06

-I'm the eldest

-but the last one to finish.

0:04:070:04:14

-I look for characters such as

-an evacuee who learnt Welsh...

0:04:140:04:19

-..and loved conversing with us.

0:04:190:04:23

-It's wonderful to feel close

-to the people of the community.

0:04:230:04:29

-The whole community is grateful

-to Ithel and Jean for their service.

0:04:300:04:36

-It won't be the same

-without Jean and Ithel.

0:04:370:04:41

-They are very welcoming

-and have been a great help to me.

0:04:420:04:47

-The community is going miss them.

0:04:470:04:51

-It's a community place

-and they are very sociable people.

0:04:510:04:56

-They do a lot in the village.

0:04:560:05:00

-Dad still lives in Whitland and he's

-going to really miss this place.

0:05:000:05:06

-Thank you very much.

0:05:120:05:14

-Here's a real character for you.

0:05:150:05:19

-We're glad to finish but it's

-been wonderful to see everyone.

0:05:190:05:23

-People have been very kind.

0:05:230:05:26

-Are you ready for a lie in

-and a holiday?

0:05:260:05:30

-Yes, that would be nice.

0:05:300:05:32

-Every day will be a Sunday!

0:05:330:05:35

-We wish Jean and Ithel

-a very happy retirement.

0:05:420:05:45

-The Welsh Language Commissioner,

-Meri Huws joins me this evening.

0:05:450:05:48

-We heard plenty of Welsh being

-spoken at that Post Office...

0:05:490:05:53

-..but unfortunately

-this isn't always the case.

0:05:530:06:05

-Today, we launched

-a report about supermarkets.

0:06:100:06:16

-We all use supermarkets.

0:06:160:06:22

-We can't avoid them.

0:06:220:06:26

-We've been working with supermarkets

-on their signs...

0:06:270:06:31

-..and produce and machines.

0:06:310:06:36

-We asked the public

-if it was important...

0:06:360:06:39

-..for the supermarkets to use Welsh.

0:06:390:06:45

-They all think it's very important

-to use the Welsh language...

0:06:450:06:51

-..in the supermarkets.

0:06:510:06:53

-Our cameras attended the launch

-at the Senedd building this morning.

0:06:530:06:57

-We asked representatives from the

-supermarkets and major companies...

0:06:580:07:02

-..to listen to the report.

0:07:020:07:04

-Love them or hate them.

0:07:180:07:21

-Supermarkets are a part

-of our daily lives.

0:07:220:07:26

-We asked a cross-section

-of 1,000 people from across Wales.

0:07:260:07:33

-This was supported by the views

-of the public...

0:07:330:07:38

-..at the Royal Welsh Show,

-on our website and via Twitter.

0:07:380:07:43

-This gave the report

-a bit more meat!

0:07:430:07:48

-We understand the importance of

-the Welsh language in communities.

0:07:480:07:52

-This formal research showed

-what our customers thought.

0:07:520:07:55

-It was great to be invited today

-and I'm really pleased to be here.

0:07:550:07:59

-We're a UK retailer but the Co-Op

-has over 160 stores in Wales.

0:07:590:08:02

-The communities around us

-are really important.

0:08:020:08:05

-If those communities are bilingual

-or speak Welsh, we need to get that.

0:08:050:08:09

-There's been an increasing demand...

0:08:090:08:12

-..and people are more confident

-to ask for legal services in Welsh.

0:08:130:08:17

-It's important for people to get

-advice in their mother tongue.

0:08:170:08:24

-A surprising finding was the

-positive attitude of young people...

0:08:240:08:28

-..to the supermarkets' use

-of the language.

0:08:280:08:32

-People aged between 16 and 34...

0:08:320:08:35

-..were more supportive

-than the rest of the population.

0:08:350:08:40

-Boots' staff wear badges showing

-their names and if they speak Welsh.

0:08:400:08:46

-Our customers, especially the

-elderly who collect prescriptions...

0:08:460:08:51

-..feel it's important that they can

-converse in Welsh.

0:08:510:08:55

-In the Co-Op, we've increased

-our product range dramatically.

0:08:560:08:59

-In the last few months,

-we've now got 23 Welsh ales.

0:09:000:09:03

-We're looking at all our

-own brand milk being Welsh.

0:09:040:09:07

-With those Welsh products, you get

-the Welsh language on the packaging.

0:09:070:09:11

-Some of the self-service tills

-can be used in Welsh.

0:09:110:09:15

-They will be easy to use

-in the Welsh language.

0:09:160:09:19

-This research is very powerful...

0:09:200:09:24

-..and educates people on the values

-of the language and make use of it.

0:09:240:09:29

-Those were some positive comments.

0:09:430:09:49

-We asked this question to viewers

-on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

0:09:490:09:53

-How much Welsh do you hear

-or see in your local supermarket?

0:09:530:09:59

-Viewers have kindly shared

-their comments on the matter.

0:09:590:10:06

-I got to read some

-of the viewers' comments.

0:10:060:10:14

-Thanks to all the Heno viewers for

-their comments.

0:10:150:10:18

-It's always interesting to hear

-the views of the people of Wales.

0:10:180:10:25

-People feel strongly about

-seeing the Welsh language...

0:10:250:10:28

-..at their supermarkets.

0:10:280:10:34

-People think it's important.

0:10:340:10:38

-The supermarkets

-need to work on this.

0:10:380:10:46

-They acknowledge that the people

-want to see the Welsh.

0:10:460:10:57

-I don't have powers

-like the government.

0:10:580:11:03

-The responsibility lies on the

-shoulders of the supermarkets.

0:11:030:11:11

-I can only work with these people...

0:11:110:11:18

-..and offer some advice.

0:11:190:11:23

-It's important for us

-all to work together.

0:11:230:11:29

-We can work with them as a sector.

0:11:290:11:34

-I live in the Barry.

0:11:340:11:37

-I live in the Barry.

0:11:370:11:44

-The Co-Op is supportive

-of the Welsh language.

0:11:440:11:51

-What can you do if the company

-has a HQ in England?

0:11:510:12:03

-A lot of people said that

-their bosses in London...

0:12:030:12:10

-..don't understand the importance

-of the Welsh language.

0:12:100:12:16

-This was the reason

-for our research.

0:12:160:12:23

-I've visited people in London.

0:12:230:12:25

-I went to encourage them to use

-Welsh.

0:12:250:12:28

-We'll chat again later.

0:12:280:12:30

-The brand-new musical Tiger Bay

0:13:030:13:07

-with 60 other children.

0:13:070:13:10

-We had to act and sing a song.

0:13:110:13:13

-You're playing a boy

-but have lovely, long hair.

0:13:150:13:21

-What's going to happen to your hair?

0:13:220:13:25

-What's going to happen to your hair?

-

-I'm going to have it cut off.

0:13:250:13:27

-All of it?

0:13:280:13:31

-so wonderful it is

0:15:220:15:25

-# This plenteous exposition

-of God's purpose #

0:15:260:15:36

-It's believed that a local pub

-had a choir in 1883.

0:15:360:15:40

-It sang Myfanwy in an Eisteddfod

-and won the prize of 1.

0:15:410:15:45

-This marked the start

-of the first Treorchy Male Choir.

0:15:450:15:53

-In October 1946, the choir reformed

-marking a new direction...

0:15:530:15:57

-..under the baton of a local

-conductor called John Haydn Davies.

0:15:570:16:06

-I've been conducting the choir

-for three years.

0:16:060:16:12

-The choir has enjoyed much success

-in recent years.

0:16:120:16:18

-The Treorchy Male Choir

-was the first Welsh choir...

0:16:180:16:21

-..to sing at the Sydney Opera House.

0:16:220:16:24

-We've returned four times

-and filled it each time.

0:16:240:16:27

-The choir sang at the Hotel De Paris

-in Monaco to Prince Albert...

0:16:270:16:33

-..and at the Centenary Commemoration

-Services at Mametz Wood.

0:16:330:16:42

-Islwyn, congratulations as you've

-been a member for 70 years.

0:16:430:16:49

-Thank you very much for that.

0:16:490:16:51

-What makes the choir

-so special for you?

0:16:510:16:54

-I've always enjoyed singing.

0:16:540:16:56

-Without coming here,

-my life would have been empty.

0:16:570:17:01

-We were four brothers in this choir

-but I'm the only one left.

0:17:010:17:04

-The others have passed

-as I'm the baby of the family.

0:17:050:17:10

-If we weren't members

-of the Treorchy Male Choir...

0:17:130:17:17

-..we wouldn't have met

-Tom Jones and Shirley Bassey...

0:17:170:17:20

-..or sung with Ella Fitzgerald

-and Julie Andrews.

0:17:200:17:25

-We shared the stage with

-Cliff Richard and Ozzy Osbourne...

0:17:250:17:29

-..and sung for the Royal Family

-many times.

0:17:290:17:34

-I was walking on the streets in 1947

-on the main road all by myself...

0:17:350:17:39

-..and I heard this glorious sound

-coming from the school.

0:17:400:17:44

-I thought it sounded alright

-so I walked in...

0:17:440:17:48

-..and haven't walked out since!

0:17:480:17:53

-# Amen, Amen

0:17:530:17:57

-# Amen, Amen

0:17:570:18:00

-We're just amateurs

-but we sing and rehearse a lot...

0:18:010:18:05

-..and are a great success

-as a male voice choir.

0:18:050:18:10

-# A-a-a-men #

0:18:100:18:14

-We wish a happy birthday

-to Treorchy Male Choir.

0:18:220:18:26

-The choir has a special concert

-at St David's Hall on 9 July.

0:18:260:18:31

-We'll hear more from the choir

-in the build up to the concert.

0:18:320:18:35

-I hope you've made a cuppa for our

0:18:360:18:41

-They claim this sweet bun is unique

-to the town of Dolgellau.

0:18:420:18:45

-A competition is held on Saturday

-to discover the best hyni bun maker.

0:18:450:18:52

-What can you tell us about

-the hyni bun?

0:19:030:19:07

-I was at the Popty'r Dref bakery

-and made hyni buns.

0:19:070:19:12

-The previous owner, Glyn Davies,

-made them at the Criterion Bakery.

0:19:120:19:17

-We upheld the tradition

-for 20 years.

0:19:170:19:21

-The current owner, Meinir,

-chose to retain that tradition.

0:19:210:19:27

-It looks like a ball of snow

-as it's dusted with icing sugar.

0:19:270:19:32

-The filling gives them the name

-of hyni buns.

0:19:330:19:36

-But they aren't made from honey.

0:19:360:19:39

-No, and I think it got the name

-because after it's cooked...

0:19:400:19:44

-..the filling melts and runs out

-like honey and it's very sweet.

0:19:440:19:50

-At Ysgol y Gader in Dolgellau...

0:19:500:19:53

-..pupils are preparing

-for Saturday's competition...

0:19:560:20:00

-..whilst learning about one

-of the town's traditions.

0:20:010:20:07

-We're using Elliw Gwawr's recipe and

-she's a local lady from Dolgellau.

0:20:070:20:13

-Years 8, 9, 10 and 11 will compete

-along with two members of staff.

0:20:130:20:20

-We're very confident!

0:20:200:20:25

-We face stiff competition

-from the pupils.

0:20:260:20:30

-I'm not confident

-but am glad to hear Miss Hughes is!

0:20:300:20:35

-The Welsh Language Commissioner,

-Meri Huws has been my guest tonight.

0:21:570:22:07

-Today saw the launch of a report...

0:22:070:22:11

-..about the use of the

-Welsh language in our supermarkets.

0:22:110:22:18

-We asked 1,000 people in Wales...

0:22:180:22:23

-..to see if they wanted to see the

-Welsh language in our supermarkets.

0:22:240:22:27

-The message is that they wanted to

-see the Welsh language...

0:22:270:22:30

-..in our supermarkets.

0:22:310:22:38

-We've had some messages

-from our viewers...

0:22:380:22:47

-..on the question of the use of

-the Welsh language in supermarkets.

0:22:470:22:52

-It's also great that young people

-want to see the Welsh language...

0:22:520:23:01

-..in these supermarkets.

0:23:010:23:08

-These people are speaking

-to their shops.

0:23:080:23:14

-We hope to see more signage

-in the Welsh language in our shops.

0:23:140:23:21

-I'll work with the companies

-on this.

0:23:210:23:32

-I'd also like people to tell

-share thoughts with the shops.

0:23:320:23:36

-Did you know that Prynhawn Da and

-Heno has a king as part of its team?

0:23:370:23:41

-Search online for Owain Gwynedd

-and this is what you'll find.

0:23:410:23:46

-Wikipedia claims our Owain Gwynedd

-was the first Welsh prince...

0:23:460:23:50

-..in the 12th century

-and that he died in 1170.

0:23:510:23:55

-I saw him yesterday

-and he looked fighting fit to me!

0:23:550:23:59

-I'm sure he'll use this

-new-found status over the weekend.

0:23:590:24:04
