0:01:140:01:18

-We start the programme

-with Dr Elin Jones.

0:01:240:01:29

-It's Women's History Month...

0:01:300:01:34

-..and over the coming weeks, we'll

-look at various women in history.

0:01:350:01:38

-Welcome to the programme, Dr Elin.

0:01:390:01:43

-Our thanks to Sue Morris

-who sent us a photograph...

0:01:440:01:48

-..of her great-grandmother,

-Susannah Roberts.

0:01:480:01:53

-It's a fantastic photograph.

0:01:530:01:59

-The photograph shows some protests

-by the Suffragettes in Caernarfon.

0:01:590:02:09

-I'm not sure which lady is

-her great-grandmother.

0:02:160:02:20

-I'm not sure if these

-are the Suffragettes.

0:02:200:02:25

-What makes you think this?

0:02:250:02:29

-They are not carrying any posters.

0:02:300:02:38

-They look quite serious.

0:02:380:02:46

-I wonder if it's something to do

-with the Temperance Movement.

0:02:470:02:57

-Women from the mid 19th century...

0:02:570:03:07

-..were part of the public figures...

0:03:080:03:11

-..with the Temperance Movement.

0:03:110:03:18

-We think that the photograph

-is dated between 1915 and 1918.

0:03:180:03:26

-The Suffragettes

-weren't that active...

0:03:260:03:34

-..during World War I.

0:03:340:03:42

-Catherine Stevens

-thought this photograph...

0:03:420:03:46

-..is of the Temperance Movement.

0:03:460:03:53

-S4C featured a series about Welsh

-women in history called Mamwlad...

0:03:530:03:57

-..that was presented by Ffion Hague.

0:03:570:04:02

-Mamwlad discussed an array

-of interesting Welsh women...

0:04:030:04:06

-..from across the centuries

-and from all walks of life.

0:04:070:04:10

-Mamwlad featured Gwenllian,

-the daughter of Gruffudd ap Cynan...

0:04:100:04:14

-..Katheryn of Berain who has been

-called the Mother of Wales...

0:04:150:04:21

-..and modern day figures such as

-Laura Ashley and Kate Roberts.

0:04:210:04:29

-Kate Roberts wrote many letters

-to Saunders Lewis.

0:04:290:04:37

-Many people remember Laura Ashley.

0:04:370:04:44

-We all wore her clothes...

0:04:440:04:52

-..and felt fantastic

-in those outfits.

0:04:520:04:59

-All those women

-have left their mark on Wales.

0:05:000:05:09

-They featured in three series

-of Mamwlad.

0:05:090:05:17

-Few women are remembered in history.

0:05:170:05:24

-There aren't a lot of statues

-of women in Wales.

0:05:240:05:33

-We have to think

-about Ann Griffiths.

0:05:340:05:43

-We remember Ann Griffiths...

0:05:430:05:48

-..but people tend to focus more

-on the men that surrounded her.

0:05:480:05:58

-We've got some books on

-some less prominent women.

0:05:590:06:08

-We've got a book about

-the governess...

0:06:090:06:16

-..of Princess Catherine.

0:06:170:06:26

-A lot of other women

-have left their mark in history.

0:06:260:06:35

-There's a book called

-Turning The Tide...

0:06:350:06:45

-..about a very important woman...

0:06:470:06:50

-..who played a massive role

-in industry.

0:06:500:06:59

-Elizabeth Andrews OBE

-was an author...

0:06:590:07:05

-..and one of the first female

-organizers within the Labour Party.

0:07:050:07:10

-I've got a copy of her articles

-that were published in a book...

0:07:100:07:15

-..called A Woman's Work

-Is Never Done.

0:07:150:07:19

-The cover of the books

-shows Elizabeth protesting...

0:07:200:07:24

-..and she's accompanied

-by one of her children.

0:07:240:07:30

-She had a great life after this.

0:07:300:07:38

-One of her great successes...

0:07:380:07:43

-..was the opening of the

-first nursery school in Wales.

0:07:430:07:49

-The late Dr John Davies

-said in his book Hanes Cymru:

0:07:490:07:54

-"You could argue that Welsh history

-plotted to ignore...

0:07:540:08:00

-"..half of our population!"

0:08:000:08:03

-We'll hear about more historic women

-from Dr Elin in the coming weeks.

0:08:030:08:07

-Don't forget to contact us with your

-questions or any of your stories.

0:08:070:08:11

-Thanks to R Geraint Williams

-for his email...

0:08:110:08:14

-..in response to yesterday's

-feature about recruiting teachers.

0:08:150:08:19

-Geraint told us about TASC that

-promoted teaching as a career...

0:08:190:08:23

-..during 1987 and 1995...

0:08:240:08:28

-..and provided Welsh language

-material for teachers in Wales.

0:08:280:08:32

-Geraint organized events

-to recruit teachers...

0:08:320:08:37

-..and provided videos,

-bilingual books...

0:08:370:08:40

-..and promoted TASC at the

-Urdd and National Eisteddfods.

0:08:400:08:45

-The work was funded by the

-Department of Education in England.

0:08:450:08:49

-Geraint secured more funding

-after visiting Lord Wyn Roberts...

0:08:490:08:54

-..who worked with

-the Secretary of State for Wales.

0:08:540:08:57

-He says that ERW isn't

-a new recruitment scheme...

0:08:580:09:01

-..and that it's a shame it's taken

-so long to reintroduce the scheme.

0:09:010:09:05

-Welcome back.

0:09:500:09:52

-It's Free Wills Month.

0:09:530:09:55

-Here to discuss the importance

-of making a will is Angela Killa.

0:09:560:10:01

-Welcome to the programme.

0:10:010:10:03

-What is a will

-and why do we need one?

0:10:060:10:16

-A will is a document that you

-prepare before your death.

0:10:210:10:31

-It states what you want to do with

-your estate and funeral plans.

0:10:320:10:38

-What if you don't have will?

0:10:380:10:44

-Rules of intestacy will apply

-if you don't have a will.

0:10:450:10:50

-These rules decide how your assets

-and possessions will be shared.

0:10:500:10:57

-People who you want to inherit your

-possessions may not get anything.

0:10:570:11:07

-It's important that you make a will

-when you are young.

0:11:140:11:23

-When should you make a will?

0:11:230:11:30

-Many people associate it

-with older people.

0:11:300:11:40

-However, I would recommend that

-you put everything on paper...

0:11:440:11:52

-..when you're at a young age.

0:11:520:11:54

-Many young people don't think

-they will have anything to leave.

0:11:550:12:05

-Can anyone make a will themselves?

0:12:070:12:16

-I recommend that you

-have professional advice...

0:12:160:12:22

-..about making a will.

0:12:220:12:25

-You can make a will on your own.

0:12:250:12:33

-But I recommend that you seek

-legal advice.

0:12:330:12:43

-Some wills are cheap enough

-through charities...

0:12:480:12:57

-..but normally you would pay

-around 200.

0:12:570:13:05

-You may die and leave children

-under the age of 18 years old.

0:13:060:13:12

-Arrange who will take guardianship

-of your children after your death.

0:13:120:13:22

-I recommend that you have advice

-when children...

0:13:260:13:30

-..and a funeral is involved.

0:13:300:13:40

-Solicitors keep a will

-in their workplace.

0:13:450:13:53

-It's also important to tell

-your family where your will is.

0:13:540:13:59

-Inform them

-where you have stored it.

0:13:590:14:09

-What if you leave behind any pets?

0:14:090:14:12

-Make a will if you want to leave a

-pet in the care of someone specific.

0:14:140:14:24

-You may want to speak to the person

-who will have you pet beforehand.

0:14:300:14:39

-Discuss it all with a solicitor.

0:14:390:14:49

-You may own a house

-that has increased in price.

0:14:500:15:00

-You could pay 40% tax if you're

-estate is worth over 325,000.

0:15:050:15:09

-This 40% tax is called Inheritance

-Tax and is paid to the government.

0:15:100:15:15

-There's a coffee morning at

-Caersalem Vestry in Pontyberem...

0:15:160:15:21

-..tomorrow from 10.30am

-until midday.

0:15:220:15:25

-Last week, the former rugby player,

-Jonathan Davies hit the headlines.

0:15:260:15:32

-He said that sports people

-feared speaking Welsh...

0:15:320:15:36

-..as they thought people

-would criticize them.

0:15:370:15:41

-Rhodri Gomer shows how sport helps

-to normalize bilingualism in Wales.

0:15:430:15:48

-The memories live on.

0:15:510:15:53

-Bale, Ramsey, Williams and the lads

-put Wales on the international map.

0:15:550:16:02

-The way the team adopted the Welsh

-language was just as memorable...

0:16:020:16:08

-..from their press conferences

-to their use of social media.

0:16:080:16:13

-I've never felt so proud to be Welsh

-as I did during that time in France.

0:16:160:16:21

-The Welsh language had an equal

-status alongside other languages.

0:16:220:16:28

-It seemed natural to use it

-in press conferences.

0:16:280:16:32

-For us to get the support of the

-nation and not just football fans...

0:16:320:16:38

-..we had to show that playing

-for Wales meant something to them.

0:16:380:16:44

-The players and association

-had the responsibility to do this.

0:16:440:16:49

-The Welsh campaign in France

-gave the language a platform...

0:16:500:16:55

-..that had never been seen before.

0:16:550:16:58

-The language was used

-in official UEFA conferences...

0:16:580:17:03

-..and it raised the profile

-of the language.

0:17:030:17:07

-Journalists who follow England

-knew nothing of the Welsh language.

0:17:070:17:13

-Ian and Owain attended an event

-at the Sports Campus in Leckwith...

0:17:130:17:19

-..organized by

-the Cardiff and Vale College...

0:17:190:17:23

-..that aimed to promote bilingualism

-in the sporting world.

0:17:240:17:28

-The bilingual conference

-is for students from across Wales.

0:17:290:17:34

-They can listen to people

-and our guest speakers...

0:17:340:17:39

-..who show that being bilingual is

-important in their sporting careers.

0:17:390:17:45

-We're here to show the value

-of the Welsh language...

0:17:450:17:50

-..and show the young people that

-being bilingual is advantageous.

0:17:500:17:56

-I show the opportunities I've had

-thanks to the Welsh language.

0:17:560:18:01

-After I finished playing, I didn't

-know what I was going to do.

0:18:020:18:07

-I could speak Welsh although my use

-of the language still isn't great!

0:18:070:18:13

-I worked with Radio Cymru

-and other programmes about sport...

0:18:130:18:18

-..and got the programme, Jonathan

-as a result of it.

0:18:190:18:23

-It doesn't matter if you inject some

-English into a Welsh conversation...

0:18:240:18:30

-..but you should just try

-and it will help you improve.

0:18:300:18:34

-If it wasn't for the Welsh language,

-I wouldn't be working for the Urdd.

0:18:350:18:41

-The language thrives in sports clubs

-in the Urdd and in schools.

0:18:410:18:46

-I love seeing Welsh rugby

-and football players speaking Welsh.

0:18:470:18:52

-It sets a great example

-to our children.

0:18:530:18:56

-I currently play

-wheelchair basketball...

0:18:570:19:01

-..but hope to coach

-local and international teams.

0:19:010:19:08

-At the moment, very few coaches

-in this sport speak Welsh...

0:19:080:19:13

-..so I think it would

-help the sport a lot.

0:19:130:19:17

-We've shown that you don't need to

-be embarrassed about the language...

0:19:180:19:24

-..and you shouldn't fear

-using the language.

0:19:240:19:28

-At Euro 2016, multilingualism

-and bilingualism was very natural...

0:19:290:19:35

-..so it shouldn't be

-any different in Wales.

0:19:350:19:39

-The Football Association of Wales

-paved the way in Euro 2016...

0:19:390:19:44

-..but we need to build on it

-and show that the Welsh language...

0:19:450:19:50

-..is a valuable resource

-in the sporting world.

0:19:500:19:54

-from Cardiff, Owen Derbyshire.

0:20:300:20:34

-After buying his first house...

0:20:340:20:36

-..Owen discovered that buying

-a new home was very long-winded...

0:20:360:20:40

-..so he started a venture that aims

-to make the process much easier.

0:20:400:20:44

-Welcome to the programme, Owen.

0:20:440:20:53

-You had trouble buying a house.

0:20:530:21:02

-Buying a house is very long-winded.

0:21:030:21:07

-There are so many things

-that you need to consider.

0:21:070:21:11

-It can be very confusing.

0:21:120:21:17

-A lot of people can confuse

-the process...

0:21:180:21:25

-..and have made a business out

-of it.

0:21:250:21:28

-The company is called Properr.

0:21:280:21:32

-We established Properr in 2015.

0:21:320:21:37

-Properr simplifies the

-property purchasing process.

0:21:370:21:42

-We help all involved

-in the sale or purchase of a home.

0:21:420:21:48

-After making the offer on a house...

0:21:490:21:56

-..the following process can

-take up to about three months.

0:21:560:22:04

-A lot of people want to move

-from their home...

0:22:040:22:09

-..as soon as possible.

0:22:090:22:15

-There's a lot of paperwork...

0:22:150:22:22

-..being sent to various parties.

0:22:220:22:27

-We want to cut down this process...

0:22:270:22:31

-..so that it only takes a day

-or two...

0:22:310:22:38

-..as opposed to taking three months!

0:22:380:22:43

-It can be very complicated.

0:22:430:22:47

-A lot of people get confused.

0:22:470:22:56

-The experts are there to help...

0:22:570:23:06

-..but you shouldn't need

-to pay a solicitor...

0:23:060:23:10

-..for sending paperwork...

0:23:110:23:15

-..from one place to the next!

0:23:150:23:21

-They are experts in their field.

0:23:210:23:31

-have you got experience

-in this field?

0:23:360:23:41

-I did a lot of work...

0:23:410:23:48

-..with some small businesses.

0:23:480:23:54

-I helped them with marketing.

0:23:540:24:00

-I've always been interested

-in working with apps.

0:24:010:24:07

-I found that the whole house-buying

-process was complicated...

0:24:070:24:16

-..so I started the business.

0:24:160:24:20

-We have ten members of staff...

0:24:220:24:27

-..and have secured

-more funding yesterday...

0:24:270:24:31

-..so that we can expand

-in the future.

0:24:310:24:35

-Do the public come to you?

0:24:360:24:43

-Properr is an online portal that

-can efficiently monitor progress...

0:24:430:24:52

-..and is a secure place for parties

-to upload relevant documentations.

0:24:530:24:59

-We hope to work with insurance

-companies in the future too.

0:24:590:25:06

-If you could offer someone

-three pieces of advice...

0:25:060:25:10

-..when it comes to buying

-or selling a property...

0:25:100:25:14

-..what would that advice be?

0:25:140:25:24

-At the moment, there isn't

-a need to rush this process.

0:25:240:25:30

-A lot of people might wait

-for a while...

0:25:300:25:33

-..before selling their homes.

0:25:330:25:41

-It's believed that everyone should

0:27:140:27:22

-..in order to live

-a healthy lifestyle.

0:27:220:27:28

-Over 70% have less than

-this amount of sleep.

0:27:280:27:33

-This affects our health...

0:27:340:27:37

-..and our mental health.

0:27:370:27:43

-Sleep should be part

-of our lives...

0:27:430:27:52

-..in order for us

-to function properly.

-tend to sleep better!

0:28:340:28:39

-They don't have many worries

-as the rest of us.

0:28:390:28:46

-It's important

-to surround yourself...

0:28:460:28:51

-..with tranquil colours...

0:28:520:28:58

-..that will not entertain

-your brain!

0:28:580:29:04

-You should try to stay cool.

0:29:040:29:12

-Photographs that make you smile

-and keep you happy...

0:29:120:29:19

-..are also important.

0:29:190:29:25

-You should have a dim light...

0:29:250:29:31

-..that isn't too shocking

-if you need to get up in the night.

0:29:310:29:37

-It's important to surround yourself

-with items...

0:29:370:29:43

-..that help you to relax.

0:29:430:29:50

-You can take a bath

-before going to bed...

0:29:500:29:55

-..as it will help you relax.

0:29:550:30:02

-Essential oils can help too...

0:30:020:30:08

-..but not if you're pregnant...

0:30:080:30:14

-..or in a child's room.

0:30:140:30:18

-Candles are great too...

0:30:190:30:26

-..but make sure you blow it out

-before you go to sleep!

0:30:260:30:33

-I've got a fleece that

-is great for the mattress.

0:30:330:30:40

-It will keep you snug!

0:30:400:30:46

-There's some great duvets.

0:30:460:30:53

-You don't want anything too thick...

0:30:530:30:59

-..as you want something comfortable.

0:30:590:31:03

-Pillows are important.

0:31:030:31:09

-You need to be comfortable.

0:31:100:31:15

0:31:160:31:19

-..if you like a depth

-to your pillows.

0:31:200:31:25

-Cushions are great...

0:31:250:31:32

-if you don't need them.

0:31:320:31:37

-something comfortable...

0:31:370:31:42

-and dressing gowns.

-some inspiration for the garden...

0:33:530:33:58

-..than in a garden centre.

0:33:580:34:01

-Although it's winter, there's

-plenty going on under the soil.

0:34:010:34:06

-There's nothing entertaining about a

0:35:050:35:09

-Welcome to the programme, Ben.

0:35:090:35:14

-You currently live in Caerphilly

-but where are you from originally?

0:35:150:35:20

-I was raised in Cwmgors between the

-Amman Valley and Swansea Valley.

0:35:200:35:25

-I went to the school in Cwmgors and

-the grammar school in Pontardawe.

0:35:260:35:32

-I was a teacher for 20 years.

0:35:320:35:38

-I was a headmaster at Ysgol Ynyswen,

-Ysgol Treorci and Ysgol Caerffili.

0:35:380:35:46

-They were all primary schools.

0:35:460:35:51

-I have fond memories as a teacher.

0:35:510:36:01

-The story behind this photo

-is linked to my 50th birthday.

0:36:020:36:08

-My ambition has always been to get

-behind the wheel of a double-decker.

0:36:080:36:15

-It's been a childhood ambition.

0:36:150:36:22

-My wife took me away for a weekend

-for my birthday.

0:36:220:36:28

-I opened a present.

0:36:280:36:33

-There was a hat inside it.

0:36:330:36:41

-We went to Merthyr and met a man

-who taught people to drive a bus.

0:36:520:36:59

-For my birthday, I had a lesson

-on how to drive a double-decker bus.

0:36:590:37:09

-There were two gears

-to move backwards.

0:37:120:37:20

-I drove a return route

-from Merthyr to Abercynon.

0:37:200:37:27

-It was a fantastic present.

0:37:270:37:32

-I have framed the photograph.

0:37:320:37:38

-I recall the James Bus in Ammanford

-as a child.

0:37:380:37:45

-I wanted to be a bus driver

-if I wasn't a teacher.

0:37:450:37:55

-This bus in the photo

-is from around 1968.

0:37:580:38:07

-They wanted to change the buses

-to one-man-operated.

0:38:070:38:17

-Double-deckers

-had an entrance at the back.

0:38:240:38:34

-They wanted to have an entrance

-at the front of the bus.

0:38:390:38:45

-One of my prized possessions

-is this World War I medal.

0:38:450:38:50

-This medal belonged

-to my great-uncle.

0:38:510:38:54

-My great-uncle was Rhys Jones.

0:38:550:38:59

-He fought in the Great War.

0:39:000:39:02

-The family claim that he went to

-fight in Salonika in World War I.

0:39:030:39:09

-He died on his second day.

0:39:090:39:11

-My great-uncle was 37 when he died.

0:39:120:39:18

-But Armistice Day occurred

-shortly after his demise.

0:39:180:39:23

-It's believed that Rhys

-was killed on 6 October.

0:39:230:39:28

-Germany signed an armistice

-on 11 November 1918.

0:39:280:39:34

-It was such a loss.

0:39:340:39:40

-Next, I have a house key.

0:39:400:39:44

-This key opens the back door

-to our family home.

0:39:450:39:53

-The key is made from heavy iron

-and weighs a ton!

0:39:530:39:57

-The key is too heavy to carry.

0:39:570:39:59

-The key is kept under a coal bucket

-next the back door.

0:40:000:40:06

-We live in a close-knit

-mining community.

0:40:060:40:09

-Locals tied their house key to the

-door knocker on a piece of string.

0:40:110:40:17

-They'd pull the string with the

-key on it out of the letterbox.

0:40:180:40:24

-There wasn't any point locking

-the door.

0:40:240:40:29

-It proves the closeness

-in the community.

0:40:290:40:34

-There was always someone

-in the house too.

0:40:340:40:39

-were always at home.

0:40:390:40:49

-Widows of miners would take coal

-from a tip at the end of the street.

0:40:500:41:00

-Many miners died from lung disease.

0:41:010:41:07

-A policeman would come and check

-if someone was stealing the coal.

0:41:070:41:13

-The neighbours would keep

-the policeman talking.

0:41:130:41:23

-Nobody broke the law then!

0:41:350:41:37

-Until tomorrow, it's a very

-good afternoon to you all.
