-The Valleys

-have always been my home.

0:00:040:00:07

-Each valley with its industrial

-scars and colourful characters...

0:00:070:00:12

-..have left

-a lasting impression on me.

0:00:120:00:15

-Over the coming weeks,

-I'll revisit the Valleys...

0:00:190:00:23

-..and meet characters

-who are truly welcoming.

0:00:240:00:27

-Why not jump on board my ride?

0:00:280:00:30

-I'm shifting gear

-and heading for the horizon!

0:00:310:00:34

-The Loughor valley is historically

-linked to the maritime industry.

0:00:430:00:48

-But the river Loughor

-starts up the Black Mountain...

0:00:480:00:53

-..before flowing towards Ammanford,

-Garnswllt and Pontarddulais.

0:00:530:00:58

-Hendy and the Loughor estuary...

0:00:580:01:00

-..is the place where the river meets

-the waters of the Gower Peninsula...

0:01:010:01:05

-..which also divides Carmarthenshire

-and Swansea.

0:01:050:01:08

-My journey begins in Pontarddulais,

-the largest village in the valley.

0:01:100:01:14

-On the high street

-is a traditional shoe shop...

0:01:150:01:18

-..which has served the locals

-for many years.

0:01:190:01:22

-Your wife's family owned the shop.

0:01:260:01:27

-Your wife's family owned the shop.

-

-Yes, the wife's family.

0:01:270:01:29

-How many worked here back then?

0:01:290:01:31

-Around three... Five in all.

0:01:320:01:35

-Were there?

0:01:350:01:36

-In the shop?

0:01:360:01:38

-Three in the shop

-and two were cobblers.

0:01:380:01:42

-It was busy back then.

-It's changed over the years.

0:01:420:01:45

-Yes, it was busy. People used to

-put them on the slate.

0:01:450:01:49

-People couldn't afford

-a pair of shoes...

0:01:500:01:53

-..so there was

-some kind of club here.

0:01:540:01:57

-They would pay five shillings

-or a couple of shillings a week.

0:01:570:02:02

-When they needed shoes,

-they would get them.

0:02:020:02:06

-Of course, they should

-have paid for it first...

0:02:070:02:11

-..but they couldn't afford it.

0:02:110:02:14

-So they were bought

-on the never-never.

0:02:150:02:17

-The shoes lasted.

0:02:180:02:20

-The shoes lasted.

-

-Yes.

0:02:200:02:21

-After buying them, they came here...

0:02:210:02:23

-After buying them, they came here...

-

-..to be repaired.

0:02:230:02:25

-At one time, there were clog shoes,

-when the tinworks were here.

0:02:250:02:30

-The soles were made from wood.

0:02:300:02:36

-The workers worked in hot places,

-standing on hot floors.

0:02:370:02:43

-They would often need

-to go to the cobblers.

0:02:440:02:47

-Grenson's and Genny's.

-High-quality makes.

0:02:490:02:52

-They're familiar makes

-sold in the shop over the years.

0:02:520:02:56

-I'm 6.5, 7 when I feel healthy.

0:02:570:03:02

-I'm quite wide, and this is high.

0:03:020:03:05

-I have trouble with slip-ons...

0:03:060:03:08

-..and this bit

-becomes marked quickly.

0:03:080:03:12

-When we fit shoes...

0:03:120:03:15

-Your heel is there.

0:03:150:03:16

-Your arch is there

-and your foot ends there.

0:03:160:03:19

-We fit the foot.

0:03:190:03:22

-The toes are different.

0:03:220:03:24

-Your second toe

-is the same length as your big toe.

0:03:240:03:29

-We sometimes have problems

-in terms of different-shaped shoes.

0:03:290:03:33

-Styles and fashion change.

0:03:340:03:36

-They say that if your second toe

-is longer than your big toe...

0:03:360:03:40

-..you're very clever.

0:03:410:03:43

-I think you're right!

0:03:430:03:46

-How does that feel?

0:03:510:03:52

-How does that feel?

-

-It's tight.

0:03:520:03:54

-I'm wide, you see.

0:03:540:03:55

-I'm wide, you see.

-

-Quite right.

0:03:550:03:56

-Getting shoes which fit my feet

-perfectly has always been a problem.

0:03:570:04:02

-Ken isn't happy

-until he measures my feet properly.

0:04:030:04:07

-Another shoe, Ken?

0:04:080:04:09

-One with a longer length and width,

-I hope.

0:04:090:04:12

-We're in.

0:04:140:04:15

-Now then.

0:04:160:04:17

-Pull up the tongue.

0:04:180:04:19

-Pull up the tongue.

0:04:200:04:21

-Right.

0:04:210:04:22

-You think I could be 8.5?

0:04:230:04:25

-Perhaps.

0:04:250:04:26

-Well, Ken, I'm a mixture

-of excitement and regret...

0:04:270:04:31

-..for the years I've spent

-wearing wrong-sized shoes!

0:04:310:04:37

-Thank you.

0:04:370:04:39

-Your mind is elsewhere

-and your feet have to follow.

0:04:390:04:42

-Your mind thinks ahead

-on everything you do.

0:04:420:04:45

-These are great.

0:04:460:04:47

-Where have I been?

-Where have you been in my life?!

0:04:470:04:51

-I cross the bridge, and the border,

-to Hendy to meet Garry Owen...

0:04:530:04:58

-..a Pontarddulais lad...

0:04:580:05:00

-..who's a familiar voice and face

-in journalism.

0:05:000:05:03

-After three years...

0:05:060:05:08

-..Tony Blair has finally written

-his account of his time at No.10.

0:05:080:05:12

-Garry, I was going to say we're

-more or less in your home patch...

0:05:130:05:17

-..but you've moved.

0:05:170:05:19

-We're in Hendy.

0:05:190:05:21

-It's another country!

0:05:210:05:22

-It's like something religious -

-you've crossed the bridge!

0:05:230:05:26

-I have crossed the bridge

-and the border.

0:05:260:05:29

-The River Loughor is a border

-between Carmarthenshire and Swansea.

0:05:290:05:34

-It's also a border

-between Hendy and Pontarddulais.

0:05:340:05:38

-I've crossed the river.

0:05:380:05:39

-There's always been a rivalry.

0:05:400:05:41

-There's always been a rivalry.

-

-Quite a rivalry.

0:05:410:05:42

-Especially in rugby. Sport.

0:05:420:05:44

-Especially in rugby. Sport.

-

-Rugby more than anything.

0:05:440:05:46

-There's an old rivalry

-between Hendy and Pontarddulais.

0:05:460:05:50

-In terms of rugby, crossing the

-river is a big thing in this area.

0:05:510:05:55

-It's been like that for decades.

0:05:550:05:57

-You travel to Cardiff every day.

0:05:580:06:01

-It's a different life

-to the one you were expecting.

0:06:010:06:05

-You were going to be a solicitor.

0:06:050:06:06

-You were going to be a solicitor.

-

-Yes.

0:06:060:06:07

-I did a Law degree in Aberystwyth.

0:06:070:06:10

-I began working as an article clerk

-in an office in Llanelli.

0:06:100:06:16

-It didn't appeal to me much

-I must admit.

0:06:160:06:19

-I'd been working in Swansea Sound...

0:06:190:06:22

-..the local radio station

-in the area since university.

0:06:220:06:25

-As you know, Roy, that bug gets hold

-of you and you can't shake it off.

0:06:260:06:31

-Then an opportunity came

-to move into broadcasting full time.

0:06:310:06:35

-In a speech from the White House...

0:06:360:06:38

-..President Obama said America

-had paid a high price...

0:06:380:06:41

-..to ensure

-that Iraqis decide their own future.

0:06:410:06:44

-You obviously enjoy it.

0:06:440:06:46

-You do English-language bulletins

-at weekends...

0:06:470:06:50

-..but Welsh

-is at the centre for you.

0:06:500:06:52

-It always has been

-and it still is.

0:06:520:06:55

-I present Taro'r Post every

-weekday lunchtime on Radio Cymru.

0:06:550:06:59

-I get to discuss different subjects

-and speak to different people.

0:07:000:07:04

-Speaking to people

-is what I enjoy doing.

0:07:040:07:07

-Half a million Lesotho people are in

-danger, a quarter of the population.

0:07:070:07:12

-They don't have enough food.

0:07:120:07:15

-I've just come back from Lesotho

-in southern Africa...

0:07:150:07:18

-..where there's famine

-at the moment.

0:07:180:07:21

-I was filming out there.

0:07:220:07:24

-You saw children not getting enough

-food. Families having a tough time.

0:07:240:07:28

-You sympathize

-and you try to show it...

0:07:280:07:32

-..but you have to step back a bit

-and look at the fuller picture.

0:07:320:07:36

-You can't let yourself...

0:07:360:07:38

-Of course you feel for people

-but you also have to be objective...

0:07:380:07:43

-..so you show people

-the true situation.

0:07:430:07:46

-Now an experienced broadcaster...

0:07:470:07:50

-..Garry lives a stone's throw

-from his native village.

0:07:500:07:53

-It's obvious that Pontarddulais

-and Hendy are close to his heart.

0:07:540:07:58

-This area's given me a lot.

0:07:590:08:00

-It might sound a bit cheesy but

-the community has given me a lot.

0:08:010:08:06

-Lots of opportunities.

0:08:060:08:08

-My father

-was in Pontarddulais Male Choir.

0:08:080:08:11

-As a child, I went to

-their rehearsals to sing or recite.

0:08:110:08:15

-I'd get the choir's response

-to how I sang a particular song.

0:08:150:08:19

-Those things have stayed with me.

0:08:190:08:21

-I feel now

-I can give something back.

0:08:210:08:24

-I'm compering a Pontarddulais Male

-Choir concert tomorrow actually.

0:08:240:08:28

-It works both ways.

0:08:280:08:29

-It works both ways.

-

-It does.

0:08:290:08:31

-They've contributed a lot to my life

-so I'm giving something back.

0:08:310:08:35

-This area is very important to me.

0:08:350:08:38

-I'm now heading to the northern

-part of the valley, to Bynea.

0:08:430:08:48

-It's a chance to meet an old friend.

0:08:480:08:50

-Terry Davies represented Wales

-in rugby at fullback.

0:08:510:08:54

-Perhaps he's remembered

-for one unforgettable story.

0:08:540:08:58

-During a Wales v England game

-at Twickenham...

0:08:590:09:02

-..Terry had a penalty kick from

-the halfway line to win the game.

0:09:030:09:07

-The kick was straight and true until

-the wind got hold of the ball...

0:09:070:09:11

-..and knocked it

-against the crossbar.

0:09:110:09:14

-A very famous draw...

0:09:150:09:17

-..but that wasn't the end

-of the story.

0:09:170:09:20

-My brother and his friend

-had driven up.

0:09:230:09:25

-He asked me to come back with them.

0:09:250:09:28

-We stopped for a cup of tea

-and something to eat.

0:09:280:09:31

-We went in.

0:09:320:09:33

-It was packed full of Welsh fans

-on their way home.

0:09:330:09:36

-You're used to people

-asking you for autographs.

0:09:370:09:42

-Two men at the far table

-came over...

0:09:430:09:47

-..and asked me

-to sign something for them.

0:09:470:09:51

-He went out and then came back in.

0:09:510:09:54

-There was a piece of wood

-painted white.

0:09:540:09:58

-He put it on the table.

0:09:590:10:02

-He asked me to sign it in three

-places as he wanted to cut it up.

0:10:020:10:06

-I agreed

-and signed it in three places.

0:10:060:10:09

-I asked which crossbar it was.

0:10:090:10:11

-"It's the crossbar at Twickenham

-that the ball hit."

0:10:110:10:15

-"Good God,"

-I was thinking to myself.

0:10:150:10:17

-"I've signed this.

-I'll be sent to jail!"

0:10:180:10:20

-I went home.

0:10:200:10:22

-On the Monday morning,

-Dad went with me to work.

0:10:230:10:27

-"The Union wants you to ring them,"

-he said.

0:10:270:10:30

-"Eric Evans is very ill."

0:10:300:10:34

-So I phoned him.

0:10:350:10:36

-"Have you seen the papers today?"

-he asked.

0:10:370:10:39

-"No," I said.

0:10:400:10:41

-"Well, I've never seen anything like

-it. You've signed that crossbar.

0:10:410:10:46

-"Were you involved in it?

0:10:460:10:48

-"Because the English rugby union

-want to jail everybody."

0:10:480:10:52

-It was on the front page

-of The Times.

0:10:530:10:55

-You're in trouble when that happens!

0:10:550:10:58

-On the Tuesday, an old codger

-gets up in the House of Lords...

0:10:580:11:03

-..and says to the Home Secretary...

0:11:030:11:05

-.."What are you doing

-about the perpetrators...

0:11:060:11:10

-"..that desecrated Twickenham?"

0:11:100:11:13

-Reuters got hold of it

-and the news reached New Zealand.

0:11:140:11:17

-They all made fun of the English.

0:11:180:11:22

-Everyone was enjoying

-reading about it in the papers.

0:11:220:11:26

-I said to myself...

0:11:270:11:31

-I decided to go to the Post Office

-and send a telegram to Twickenham.

0:11:310:11:35

-I was going to ask them

-if they'd like a new crossbar.

0:11:360:11:42

-A week passed with no reply.

0:11:420:11:45

-Three weeks later, I was playing

-for the Barbarians in Leicester.

0:11:450:11:50

-Sat opposite me was Prentice,

-one of the England selectors.

0:11:500:11:55

-I decided to talk to him.

0:11:550:11:58

-I said, "Excuse me, Mr Prentice.

0:11:580:12:01

-"Why didn't you answer my telegram

-offering you a crossbar?

0:12:010:12:07

-He looked down his nose at me

-and said, "My dear chap.

0:12:070:12:12

-"Did you ever think that we'd have

-a Welsh crossbar at Twickenham?

0:12:120:12:17

-"Not only that. Sir Wavell Wakefield

-is not enamoured by you.

0:12:180:12:23

-"He's deleted your name

-off the invitation list...

0:12:230:12:28

-"..for champers at Twickers

-with Wakers."

0:12:280:12:32

-I laughed at that for a week!

0:12:320:12:35

-In the most scenic part

-of the Gower...

0:12:470:12:49

-..one of the Loughor's

-oldest industries is cockle picking.

0:12:490:12:53

-At one time, the banks and the sands

-of Penclawdd and Loughor...

0:12:530:12:57

-..were teeming with cockles

-and tons of seafood.

0:12:570:13:00

-They were traditionally collected

-by women mostly.

0:13:000:13:04

-They were then cleaned

-and transported to Swansea.

0:13:040:13:07

-It was physical work, but cockle

-picking became known the world over.

0:13:070:13:11

-Sadly, the industry's in decline.

0:13:120:13:14

-We're on the other side

-of the Loughor now.

0:13:220:13:25

-The tide's out, thankfully.

0:13:250:13:27

-Are people who collect cockles

-known as fishermen?

0:13:270:13:30

-Cockle fishermen.

0:13:300:13:32

-Cockle fishermen.

-

-Fishermen is correct.

0:13:320:13:33

-There are around 35

-independent fishermen in this area.

0:13:330:13:37

-They work hard to keep

-the industry going in Penclawdd.

0:13:380:13:43

-There are thousands of cockles here.

0:13:440:13:48

-But they aren't as big

-as they should be.

0:13:480:13:51

-At the moment, the cockles

-only live until they're a year old.

0:13:510:13:56

-A lot of cockles have died

-over the last decade.

0:13:560:14:02

-Fishermen still come here and

-collect, but numbers have decreased.

0:14:020:14:08

-No-one knows why.

0:14:090:14:12

-No.

0:14:120:14:13

-Research is ongoing, but no-one

-knows why these deaths occurred.

0:14:130:14:19

-My journey continues

-to the village of Loughor.

0:14:270:14:31

-The waters and tides

-are treacherous.

0:14:330:14:36

-As the third fastest tide

-in the world...

0:14:360:14:38

-..a unique service

-is offered by a group of locals.

0:14:390:14:42

-They guard the water as part

-of the Loughor Lifeboat team.

0:14:420:14:46

-We cover from the Eleven Arches

-from Pontarddulais...

0:14:500:14:54

-..and then the Loughor estuary

-as it makes its way out to sea.

0:14:540:14:57

-We come about to St Ishmaels...

0:14:580:15:00

-..and if you draw a line

-across to Worm's Head...

0:15:000:15:03

-..that's our operational area.

0:15:030:15:05

-Loughor is renowned

-as one of the most dangerous...

0:15:060:15:09

-..with the tidal streams and flows

-we get here.

0:15:090:15:12

-It does catch people out.

0:15:120:15:13

-It does catch people out.

-

-It's all volunteering, this now.

0:15:130:15:15

-Every one of us.

0:15:150:15:17

-Apart from the crew,

-they're all volunteers.

0:15:170:15:20

-We've got a selection

-who help us fundraise.

0:15:200:15:24

-But not one person gets paid -

-it's all voluntary.

0:15:240:15:27

-We're an independent

-lifeboat station...

0:15:280:15:31

-..so we raise funds

-to keep our service going.

0:15:310:15:34

-We're very fortunate that the local

-communities lend us their support.

0:15:340:15:39

-We're still providing that service

-today.

0:15:390:15:42

-I'm trying to keep my hand away

-from the red button in front of me.

0:15:420:15:46

-Don't press that red button!

0:15:460:15:47

-Don't press that red button!

-

-Otherwise a helicopter will come!

0:15:470:15:49

-All of them volunteers.

0:15:530:15:55

-The crew meet up regularly and know

-the dangerous Gower waters well.

0:15:550:15:59

-It's nice to see youngsters

-contributing to this great service.

0:16:000:16:04

-Jac, how old are you?

0:16:050:16:07

-Fifteen.

0:16:080:16:09

-When did you start on this boat?

0:16:090:16:11

-I started in 2004.

0:16:120:16:14

-My father

-would come down to work here...

0:16:140:16:17

-..so I would stay in the station

-to help out.

0:16:170:16:21

-How old were you then?

0:16:210:16:23

-Four.

0:16:230:16:24

-Four.

-

-Four!

0:16:240:16:25

-Your father was one of the crew.

0:16:260:16:27

-Your father was one of the crew.

-

-Yes.

0:16:270:16:28

-Do you go out often?

0:16:290:16:30

-I'm starting to now.

-I couldn't before because of my age.

0:16:300:16:34

-The Loughor reaches the sea.

0:16:340:16:36

-The tide goes in and out.

0:16:370:16:39

-The tide is in now.

-That's why we're here.

0:16:390:16:42

-Is it difficult when the tide turns?

0:16:420:16:45

-In the sea, no place is great

-when the tide turns.

0:16:460:16:52

-You don't know when or where

-it's going to happen.

0:16:520:16:58

-You have to be ready for anything.

0:16:580:17:01

-In the future,

-will you be doing Darren's job?

0:17:010:17:05

-Yes.

0:17:050:17:06

-That was special.

0:17:170:17:18

-It's nice today,

-but out there it was breezy.

0:17:190:17:22

-Some of the waves were like mounds.

0:17:220:17:24

-When that picked up speed, it was

-like riding a bull in a rodeo.

0:17:240:17:28

-You can imagine what it's like

-when it's rough.

0:17:280:17:31

-These lads do an amazing job.

0:17:310:17:33

-I doff my cap to them,

-and my helmet.

0:17:330:17:35

-Before I leave the Loughor valley...

0:17:530:17:56

-..I'm back in Pontarddulais for

-a special event held over there...

0:17:560:18:01

-..the Pontarddulais Show, which

-first took place over 100 years ago.

0:18:010:18:05

-I'm meeting some of the officials,

-so the leather and helmet...

0:18:050:18:09

-..have been replaced by a blazer

-and a hat from the time of the Raj.

0:18:100:18:14

-Fair play, Pontarddulais people

-know how to put on a show.

0:18:160:18:19

-It's August Bank Holiday

-and it's packed here.

0:18:200:18:23

-Trevor, you've been

-a part of this show for years.

0:18:260:18:30

-About 22 years.

0:18:300:18:31

-About 22 years.

-

-You're on the committee.

0:18:310:18:33

-I've been on it for 22 years.

-I'm now the vice president.

0:18:330:18:37

-What's the secret in Pontarddulais?

0:18:370:18:39

-With the cattle,

-it's that all the locals are out.

0:18:400:18:43

-I see.

0:18:430:18:44

-You have a farm.

0:18:450:18:46

-You have a farm.

-

-I do.

0:18:460:18:47

-I was milking until last year.

-I now rear youngstock.

0:18:470:18:50

-Do you have anything in the show?

0:18:510:18:52

-Do you have anything in the show?

-

-Eleven in all.

0:18:520:18:53

-Have you won anything so far?

0:18:530:18:55

-Have you won anything so far?

-

-I've won my fair share.

0:18:550:18:57

-Four first places, three seconds

-and two third places.

0:18:570:19:02

-You haven't won

-because you're on the committee!

0:19:020:19:06

-No!

0:19:060:19:07

-The judge is from Gwent.

0:19:070:19:09

-The judge is from Gwent.

-

-There we are then!

0:19:090:19:10

-Very good!

0:19:110:19:12

-The strength of this show is the

-number of animal classes held here.

0:19:190:19:23

-Where there are animals,

-a vet is needed.

0:19:240:19:26

-This year,

-Ifan James has that responsibility.

0:19:270:19:31

-Do you have

-an umbrella of responsibilities?

0:19:360:19:42

-Do you look after specific classes?

0:19:420:19:45

-As you know, there are many animals

-at this show.

0:19:450:19:48

-There are sheep and cattle.

0:19:480:19:51

-There are horses in the Main Ring.

0:19:510:19:53

-Horses from different sections

-and ones that jump too.

0:19:540:19:58

-We're here to help out.

0:19:580:20:02

-It's important

-there's a vet available...

0:20:020:20:05

-..so the show can call on him or her

-to respond to an emergency.

0:20:050:20:10

-I've been in one where a horse

-got injured and required stitches.

0:20:100:20:15

-Maybe a horse will be limping

-after an injury to its leg.

0:20:150:20:20

-That can happen.

0:20:200:20:22

-A dog might be ill,

-perhaps after overheating in a car.

0:20:220:20:26

-There's a dog show here too

-and one might not be well.

0:20:270:20:30

-Lots of things happen.

0:20:300:20:32

-It's fun. The most enjoyable thing

-is meeting people.

0:20:330:20:36

-As a local show,

-a lot of them are clients.

0:20:360:20:39

-It's nice to have an opportunity

-to talk to them outside work.

0:20:400:20:45

-ANNOUNCER: Calling Class 102,

-please. Ridden Welsh, Section D.

0:20:460:20:50

-can be found in the Horse Ring.

0:20:530:20:56

-It's the biggest competition

-in the show.

0:21:120:21:14

-Geraint, how long have you

-been working on this show?

0:21:140:21:18

-I've been commentating here

-for ten years.

0:21:180:21:21

-I've commentated at shows

-in West Wales for almost 25 years.

0:21:210:21:25

-I've listened to you

-and watched you too.

0:21:250:21:28

-It's quite a responsibility.

0:21:280:21:30

-It's quite a responsibility.

-

-It is.

0:21:300:21:31

-The commentator tries

-to keep everything ticking over.

0:21:320:21:35

-The commentator also receives

-most of the complaints.

0:21:350:21:40

-You have to listen

-to two things at once.

0:21:400:21:43

-You've made notes

-all over the programme.

0:21:440:21:47

-Is it just the horses you do

-or do you do other animals as well?

0:21:470:21:51

-I do the cattle

-at the Royal Welsh.

0:21:510:21:54

-I'm one of the commentators

-in the cattle section.

0:21:550:21:58

-In shows such as this,

-you have to do a bit of everything.

0:21:580:22:02

-I'll be presenting the prizes

-in the cattle section later.

0:22:020:22:07

-Generally, I'm a jack of all trades.

0:22:070:22:10

-I'll say this quietly.

0:22:100:22:12

-Have you made any mistakes?

0:22:120:22:14

-Have you announced a winner

-but in fact they haven't won?

0:22:140:22:18

-Oh, yes!

0:22:190:22:20

-I'll hold my hand up.

0:22:200:22:22

-Everyone makes mistakes sometimes.

0:22:220:22:26

-But when you're trying to listen

-to one person in one ear...

0:22:260:22:31

-..read and listen to someone else...

0:22:310:22:34

-..you have to be on the ball

-all the time.

0:22:340:22:40

-Geraint, thank you.

-I'll let you get on with your work.

0:22:400:22:44

-Well, you know, I'm amazed how

-you can keep so much control here.

0:22:450:22:50

-Well, I've been doing it

-for long enough.

0:22:510:22:53

-I have an idea what's going on.

0:22:530:22:55

-There you are. Keep it up.

0:22:560:22:57

-There you are. Keep it up.

-

-Thank you.

0:22:570:22:58

-We're judging Class 72, the

-Welsh Mountain Ponies, Section A.

-full of colourful characters.

0:23:100:23:14

-On the banks of the Loughor

-are close-knit, warm communities...

0:23:140:23:18

-..which are proud of their roots.

0:23:180:23:21

-My journey comes to an end next week

-at one of Wales's...

0:23:250:23:29

0:23:340:23:37

-Come with me
