-..I had a dream full of things
-that I didn't understand yet.
-There weren't any clues
-This dream depicted
-the colour of my love.
-The man himself was smiling at me.
-I woke covered in sweat and tears
-and Branwen must've heard me.
-Because she came into the room
-and climbed towards me on the bed.
-Her body heat was more comforting
-than any woollen blanket.
-There was something maternal
-about Branwen at that moment.
-And I decided to open
-up my heart to her.
-"I don't love your father."
-Branwen paused for a second.
-"I know", she replied.
-"I hate him", I said.
-"Me too", said Branwen,
-and I grabbed both her hands.
-"Don't put yourself in a situation
-where someone can mistreats you."
-"You've got strength,
-so don't waste it."
-The following day,
-whilst the men were sleeping...
-..I found her on the side
-of the castle above the sea.
-She was holding an axe.
-"What are you doing?" I said.
-"We'll take the best horses
-and the dogs as well."
-"I've sharpened the axe."
-"OK, but not now", I replied,
-"We need time to prepare."
-"But we'll leave." "When?",
-she asked. "In a week."
-I began to plan our escape and
-go to the man who truly loved me.
-If I only listened
-to Branwen that night.
-The first of September dawned
-and it was an important day.
-The day I fled from
-Harlech and Llyr.

-in a wooden box...
-..and sharpened each one in
-the early hours whilst Llyr slept.
-They were waiting for us
-with two sacks of clothes...
-..ready to tie to the
-youngest horses in the stable.
-There was a knock on the door
-and it was Branwen.
-Her face told me that
-our world had changed.
-We'll hear the final part of
-our story on tomorrow's programme.
-This year, the Merched y Wawr
-marks its 50th anniversary.
-We're joined by three ladies
-from the various groups in Wales.
-They are Sian Davies,
-Carys Roberts and Delyth Jenkins.
-Welcome to the programme.
-Sian has recently retired
-from being a nurse with the NHS.
-I was a sister at Bronglais.
-I retired back in November.
-I'm a member of the Clwb Gwawr
-group of Merched y Wawr...
-..in the Cilcennin area.
-The branch has about 11 members.
-We have a quiz next Tuesday.
-It should be a lot of fun.
-Delyth is a keen cook.
-She won the World Bara Brith
-Competition in Llandudno.
-This is the bara brith.
-I thought it was a Merched y Wawr
-I heard that I won on Heno.
-Is it a family recipe?
-The recipe is in my family.
-It's from my Aunty Beryl.
-I hope to sell the bara brith
-in a shop.
-I've always made it for friends.
-Some of the crew have nibbled on the
-I'm a retired teacher.
-I've taught in Somerset and Cardiff.
-I've returned to my home area.
-I'm a member of the Aberaeron
-branch of Merched y Wawr.
-Our branch is very busy.
-We enjoyed a recent talk
-with Sulwyn Thomas.
-We also enjoyed some cake
-and tea afterwards.
-Delyth won best in show
-for her Italian biscuits...
-..at the Royal Welsh Show.
-Yes and I won a Merched y Wawr
-competition with my biscuits.
-Merched y Wawr enabled me
-to socialise with women my age.
-It was a chance to visit places
-and do some pottery.
-You'll be modelling for us today to
-coincide with the 50th celebrations.
-We are looking forward to model
-for Huw today.
-We are slightly nervous.
-We have seen the clothes
-and we like them.
-There aren't any bikinis in sight!
-After the break,
-we open the surgery with Dr Ann.
-Dr Ann has joined us
-to discuss heart disease...
-..and more specifically
-the hearts of women...
-..as February is Heart Month.
-This is the heart.
-It beats 70 times a minute.
-It's a bundle of muscles.
-It needs oxygen.
-The oxygen is delivered
-The arteries are
-the coronary arteries.
-The image showed a yellow coating...
-..which is the fat
-inside the arteries.
-This forms the arteries to close.
-This starts in your twenties.
-If your arteries close...
-..do you need to have an operation?
-It will cause a cardiac arrest.
-The heart needs to be restarted
-within eight minutes...
-..before any brain damage is caused.
-Some people will need a stent.
-It's placed in an artery
-in the leg...
-..and is led to the heart.
-This will help to open the heart.
-However, some people will need
-to have a by-pass.
-We are focusing on women today.
-Women suffer as much as men.
-Heart disease is often thought of
-as being a male disease...
-..but it's just as popular
-..as it is in men.
-Men and women are at the same risk.
-Smoking is one of the main causes
-of heart disease.
-It has more of an effect on women...
-..than of men.
-More girls in their teens smoke...
-..than boys of the same age.
-Women are three times more likely
-to die of heart disease...
-..than of breast cancer.
-But we can also help ourselves.
-It's important that
-you shouldn't smoke...
-..and eat healthily.
-You need to arrive in the hospital..
-..within an hour of an attack.
-Does alcohol help your heart?
-Those people who are sensible
-about their alcohol intake...
-..and about the amount
-of exercise they do...
-..are at less of a risk
-of having a heart attack.
-The jury is out on this!
-They say that our body shape
-can be a risk factor.
-As we age, we gain more body fat
-around our waist.
-This will affect the heart.
-Many women have symptoms
-and don't realize...
-..that it's caused by heart disease.
-The symptoms are more gradual
-It's time for some fashion.
-How are the new models behaving,
-Did you mention models?
-Yes, I've got models
-from Merched y Wawr.
-They will be modelling once a month.
-I hope that we can try some
-Delyth won the World Bara Brith
-Competition in Llandudno.
-Today, I'm looking at navy.
-It's very fashionable.
-It was so easy today.
-I didn't know my models.
-Navy is all over the high street.
-It's a tasteful colour.
-it's a great option
-other than the black.
-I've kept it simple
-and practical for Delyth.
-I was talking about coats.
-The jacket is by Ben De Lisi
-and is 95.
-He's working with Principles.
-Principles sells the staples.
-I want to show the jumper.
-There's a flap on it.
-It's far more interesting.
-This is what you get from
-There's plenty of trousers on the
-Sian is our next model.
-Sian's outfit is similar to the
-clothes she wears.
-Sian likes to wear layers.
-All the ladies were worried about
-There's a great scarf.
-The tunic is very simple...
-..but it isn't denim.
-There's some super skinny jeans.
-A lot of people don't think that
-they can wear super skinny jeans.
-Please remember that most people...
-..will wear something
-longer over the top.
-They are like leggings.
-Leggings are very 1990s!
-I prefer the trousers.
-Carys is our next model.
-Carys struggles to find items to
-suit her shape.
-It's important to shop around.
-This outfit is lovely.
-The navy blouse
-has some black lace...
-..so it's teamed
-with black trousers.
-A lot of people will
-have black accessories.
-The lace adds interest.
-It means you can wear it
-to many events.
-I think it looks very expensive.
-I'm ready for my coffee
-and Bara Brith now!
-After the break,
-we hear of a new charity.
-Join us in a few minutes.
-Our next guest is a young mother.
-On 12 April 2012, she gave
-birth to twins, Jac and Wil.
-It was a joyous day for the family.
-But tragically, on 3 February 2015,
-two years ago to tomorrow...
-..Jac sadly died.
-His parents, Sian and Andy
-have set up a special trust...
-..to help other parents
-who face a similar battle.
-Welcome to the programme, Sian.
-Tell us about Jac
-who was the second twin to be born.
-He had a straight-forward birth,
-just like Wil.
-At about six months, we noticed
-that he wasn't developing like Wil.
-He never enjoyed eating
-and always had stomach problems...
-..just like a lot of other babies.
-We consulted a doctor and noticed
-some differences between the pair.
-He had a lot of tests
-and they thought he had epilepsy.
-He was put on various courses
-of medication but nothing worked.
-I had to fight to get a doctor to
-study the workings of his stomach.
-We eventually saw a specialist and
-thought we were on the right path...
-..as he was improving
-and gaining weight.
-Unfortunately in the November...
-..he got a virus
-and was admitted to hospital.
-Wil was ill too just like a lot
-of children at that time of year.
-The doctors were very worried and he
-went into the high dependency unit.
-He was discharged
-but his body wasn't strong enough...
-..and he lost his battle.
-We're not certain but think
-that the virus caused his death.
-You still don't know what caused it.
-No, we don't know why he suffered
-in those early days.
-He had bronchiolitis
-His body was so weak
-that he couldn't fight it.
-When you have children
-of the same age...
-..it's only natural that you compare
-Yes, they advise against it
-but it's difficult to avoid.
-Wil was walking
-at eight and a half months...
-..so they were both
-at different extremes.
-Friends had babies at the same time
-so it was difficult not to compare.
-You were shocked that he wasn't
-as strong as his brother...
-..but it was an even bigger blow
-to lose him.
-Yes, and the night he died,
-everyone in the house was ill...
-..but he seemed to have turned
-a corner and was improving...
-..so it was totally unexpected.
-That was two years ago and
-his brother, Wil, is full of life.
-Yes, that's right.
-Did he miss his brother
-or was he too young to realize?
-We explained it in a simple way by
-saying that he'd gone to the stars.
-Wil still looks to the stars
-and talks to him.
-We talk about him and there are
-photographs all over the house.
-Tell us about the charity
-that you've established.
-A month after losing Jac,
-we had a leaflet through the door.
-It was from a neighbour who I didn't
-know and lived five doors away.
-She wanted money for her twin
-daughter who had cerebral palsy.
-They needed 80,000
-for the treatment.
-After my experience, I knew
-that I had to help this girl.
-I didn't know how to raise money
-but was told to start a charity.
-I thought it was silly
-and not something that I could do.
-We thought about it and decided to
-try it and we named it after Jac.
-Elusen Jac Bach Charity
-has raised about 60,000 to date.
-We've helped eleven families
-and we're working with two more now.
-You sell merchandise and we can see
-the logo on your jumper.
-I like that hoodie.
-How can people donate or buy
-any of your great merchandise?
-There's many ways to do that but
-we have a website, www.jacbach.com
-You can donate on that website.
-You can also email me as we have
-hoodies, t-shirts and beanie hats.
-Thank you, I know it hasn't been
-easy for you to tell your story.
-Good luck with the charity
-as you help a lot of families.
-Next week, we celebrate
-a legendary Welsh figure...
-..and these are the details.
-Next week on Heno and Prynhawn Da...
-..we mark 300 years since the birth
-of William Williams Pantycelyn.
-He was responsible for some
-of our nation's greatest hymns.
-We'll discuss his life and work,
-visit places of importance...
-..and hear many renditions
-of his popular hymns.
-Join us next week...
-..as we remember the Sweet Singer,
-William Williams Pantycelyn.

-Williams Pantycelyn next week.

-potential to model again, Huw?

-all the bara brith.
