-# Hey, hey, hey,

-listen to the music

0:00:050:00:09

-# Tonight's a big night

0:00:100:00:12

-# I've got something

0:00:120:00:14

-# Yes, yes, yes, I've got something

0:00:140:00:17

-# Something to say

0:00:180:00:21

-# Tony, Tony, Tony

0:00:240:00:26

-# Aloma #

0:00:260:00:28

-They've sold over 100,000 records

-and made six television series.

0:00:290:00:34

-Tony and Aloma are iconic

-Welsh figures, the perfect duet.

0:00:350:00:40

-They've shone on our stages

-and television sets for forty years.

0:00:400:00:46

-# Tony, Tony, Tony

0:00:460:00:48

-# Aloma #

0:00:480:00:49

-They've run a Blackpool hotel

-for twenty years.

0:00:500:00:54

-The touring is over.

0:00:540:00:56

-Their devoted fans travel

-to The Gresham to see their heroes.

0:00:570:01:01

-Let's sing some old favourites.

0:01:040:01:06

-# I've got a sweetheart

0:01:100:01:11

-# I've got a sweetheart

-

-# That's me

0:01:110:01:13

-# When there's a dance in town

-we'll be there

0:01:130:01:16

-# My trousers are tight

0:01:160:01:18

-# My trousers are tight

-

-# And mine are white #

0:01:180:01:19

-It's been 44 years since

-they recorded Mae Gen I Gariad.

0:01:200:01:24

-It's still a favourite

-at The Gresham.

0:01:250:01:28

-# It's one, two, three o'clock

0:01:290:01:32

-# It's one, two, three o'clock #

0:01:320:01:35

-Tony and Aloma are returning

-to the studio over the coming weeks.

0:01:350:01:40

-# And that's when the day ends #

0:01:400:01:42

-Aloma and Roy are driving

-to Sain studios, by Caernarfon.

0:01:430:01:47

-They're meeting Dafydd Iwan.

0:01:480:01:50

-How are you?

0:02:000:02:00

-How are you?

-

-Not bad!

0:02:000:02:01

-It's been a long time.

0:02:020:02:04

-Nice to see you.

-You're looking good!

0:02:040:02:08

-Sain are keen to release

-a CD of old Tony and Aloma songs.

0:02:090:02:13

-They were originally

-released on Cambrian Records.

0:02:130:02:17

-People think

-we asked the piglet to pee.

0:02:180:02:21

-Talk about wee-wee-wee

-all the way home!

0:02:210:02:24

-Yes!

0:02:240:02:26

-What did you think

-of the tapes in the archive?

0:02:280:02:32

-I find it hard

-to listen to the old songs.

0:02:320:02:35

-The pitch is so high.

0:02:360:02:39

-It's as if I'm listening

-to seven-year-olds at an Eisteddfod.

0:02:400:02:45

-They're very high.

0:02:460:02:47

-Walking into a studio makes me

-a nervous wreck! That's where I was.

0:02:530:02:58

-A Cambrian EP was recorded

-in a hall in Llandovery.

0:02:590:03:03

-I sang into a little microphone.

0:03:030:03:06

-It took about an hour

-and a quarter to record the EP.

0:03:070:03:11

-We sang, they pressed a few buttons,

-rewind, and that was it.

0:03:120:03:17

-Does producing a Welsh record

-make business sense?

0:03:180:03:22

-The average cost of a record

-is 14 shillings and sixpence.

0:03:220:03:27

-Half is divided between

-the shop and sales tax.

0:03:270:03:31

-Of the 7 shillings remaining, the

-sleeve can cost 1 shilling to print.

0:03:310:03:36

-That leaves 6 shillings

-for studio and equipment hire...

0:03:370:03:41

-..the orchestra or band, producing,

-copyright and company profit.

0:03:410:03:46

-That leaves sixpence,

-if they're lucky, to the artistes.

0:03:460:03:51

-# In my shirtsleeves

-I'll have egg, chips and peas

0:03:530:03:56

-# And as I pay the bill,

-I'll have a smile #

0:03:560:04:01

-Releasing a Welsh record

-doesn't guarantee a fast return.

0:04:020:04:06

-# Call to see them

-in the Gaerwen cafe

0:04:060:04:09

-# It'll be hard

-not to lose your head

0:04:090:04:12

-# When you see

-Pat, Janet, Elsie and Glen #

0:04:120:04:15

-While Aloma and Roy are away,

-Tony looks after Oli.

0:04:170:04:22

-It's like a prison here!

0:04:250:04:28

-He's mad!

0:04:320:04:34

-Come here!

0:04:440:04:46

-Oli, come here!

0:04:520:04:54

-Come here!

0:04:540:04:56

-I don't know about the dog,

-but I'm tired now!

0:05:050:05:09

-It's a woman's dog.

0:05:100:05:11

-There's no point saying

-come here and sit!

0:05:120:05:15

-Aloma warns me not

-to let him off the leash.

0:05:170:05:20

-I had a dog, Sian.

0:05:220:05:24

-I worked in England for three years,

-moving from farm to farm.

0:05:240:05:29

-For the first six months...

0:05:290:05:32

-..I was strict with her,

-because she had to behave.

0:05:320:05:36

-If she was naughty...

0:05:360:05:39

-..I'd smack her, like I was

-smacked when I was a naughty boy.

0:05:390:05:43

-After the first six months...

0:05:440:05:47

-..she'd learnt her lesson

-and I didn't touch her again.

0:05:470:05:51

-She lived to be sixteen.

0:05:510:05:54

-I daren't hit this one!

-My life wouldn't be worth living!

0:05:570:06:02

-Aloma and Roy bought a cottage

-in Benllech six years ago.

0:06:030:06:07

-I buy a Welsh paper,

-or get the Daily Post delivered.

0:06:090:06:13

-Roy checks what's for sale

-and the value of land.

0:06:130:06:19

-Are you talking about me?

0:06:200:06:21

-Are you talking about me?

-

-No!

0:06:210:06:22

-Years ago, Aloma purchased

-the land surrounding the cottage.

0:06:250:06:29

-The land once

-belonged to her grandfather.

0:06:300:06:33

-I'm proud that I've got

-a small part of the island.

0:06:330:06:38

-No-one can take it away from me.

0:06:390:06:41

-When I come home...

0:06:420:06:44

-..especially when it's sunny...

0:06:450:06:48

-..I walk around

-with a smile on my face.

0:06:480:06:52

-I know it's not massive.

0:06:520:06:56

-But it's mine.

0:06:570:06:59

-It's the only thing that I can say,

-"That's mine, and only mine."

0:07:000:07:05

-Right, then.

-I've found the old suitcase.

0:07:100:07:14

-I've still got it, for some reason!

0:07:140:07:17

-I can't remember

-the last time I looked in it.

0:07:170:07:21

-Here's a cheque.

0:07:230:07:24

-You didn't put it in the bank?

0:07:250:07:28

-26th of June 1972.

0:07:300:07:33

-Aloma Jones.

0:07:340:07:36

-She hasn't had it!

-Don't tell her, right!

0:07:360:07:39

-I have to watch what I take out!

-Perhaps you shouldn't see it!

0:07:400:07:45

-Oh.

0:07:480:07:50

-My father died in 1972.

0:07:540:07:56

-He was the tenant in Cerrig-y-tyrn,

-Rhosmeirch.

0:07:560:08:00

-"The tenant with whom the contract

-of tenancy was made has died...

0:08:000:08:04

-"..within three months before the

-date of the giving of this Notice."

0:08:040:08:08

-They wanted

-to throw me out of my home.

0:08:090:08:11

-I stayed there for three years.

0:08:120:08:17

-The courts gave me six months.

0:08:190:08:22

-I kept having six month extensions.

0:08:230:08:26

-That carried on for three years.

0:08:270:08:30

-After three years, I gave up.

0:08:300:08:34

-I left.

0:08:360:08:37

-So...

0:08:390:08:40

-Back in Blackpool...

0:08:410:08:43

-..Aloma's meeting Roy after

-one of his important ceremonies.

0:08:430:08:48

-Roy has been a Freemason

-for 17 years.

0:08:560:09:00

-During this time, he's been the

-President and Master of Ceremony.

0:09:000:09:06

-It's one of those very

-important things in your life...

0:09:080:09:12

-..when you become

-Master of your Lodge.

0:09:120:09:15

-Ever since

-the first day I came in...

0:09:160:09:19

-..I've been absolutely mad keen

-about it, and really enjoyed...

0:09:190:09:23

-..practically every minute

-I've been involved in Freemasonry.

0:09:240:09:28

-When I first walked in,

-I thought this was a chessboard.

0:09:300:09:33

-I had no draughts to play with!

0:09:340:09:36

-Do you and Roy play draughts

-here when there's no-one around?

0:09:360:09:41

-We played chess. I always beat him.

0:09:410:09:44

-During some of the dinners...

0:09:470:09:49

-..if there's a guest speaker...

0:09:500:09:53

-..and when the Lodge

-isn't so serious...

0:09:530:09:57

-..perhaps he's just

-accompanying someone after dinner...

0:09:570:10:01

-..I wonder what song he's playing.

0:10:020:10:05

-Suddenly, I realize it's

-Tri Mochyn Bach!

0:10:050:10:09

-It's past midnight at The Gresham.

-Tony discusses his new song.

0:10:130:10:18

-Cofion Gorau is for everyone...

0:10:190:10:22

-..every couple

-who've been in love...

0:10:230:10:27

-..all their lives...

0:10:280:10:29

-..and they're still together...

0:10:300:10:33

-..not just me and Aloma.

0:10:330:10:35

-Of course

-I used Aloma as inspiration.

0:10:360:10:39

-There's no doubt about that.

0:10:410:10:43

-When I composed the song,

-I heard Aloma singing it with me.

0:10:430:10:49

-Of course I used Aloma.

0:10:490:10:51

-She inspired the songs.

0:10:530:10:55

-# It was only an incident

0:10:590:11:01

-# It happened in an instant

0:11:020:11:05

-# Falling in love

0:11:060:11:09

-# Forever with you

0:11:100:11:13

-# The best memories

0:11:160:11:19

-# And God at his best

0:11:190:11:22

-# Putting two together

0:11:230:11:26

-# As one, like us #

0:11:270:11:30

-Time passes.

0:11:310:11:32

-# Time passes

0:11:330:11:36

-# Our love brings us closer

0:11:370:11:40

-# I need your company

0:11:400:11:43

-# More and more

0:11:440:11:47

-# The best memories

0:11:480:11:51

-# And God at his best

0:11:520:11:55

-# Putting the blue in your eyes

0:11:560:11:59

-# And magic in my world #

0:11:590:12:03

-It'll work like that.

0:12:040:12:05

-It'll work like that.

-

-OK, then!

-The Gresham is closed today.

0:12:140:12:16

-The hotel is being used

-as a recording studio for the day.

0:12:170:12:21

-Tony and Aloma

-decided to record Cofion Gorau.

0:12:220:12:26

-The producer, Dyl Mei, has arrived.

0:12:270:12:31

-I've read the book

-and it's such an amazing story.

0:12:320:12:36

-It's almost like wanting

-to be a part of the film...

0:12:370:12:41

-..an epic Hollywood biopic.

0:12:410:12:43

-It's also an excuse

-to come to The Gresham.

0:12:440:12:47

-# Living with you

0:12:470:12:50

-# Sometimes there were tears

0:12:510:12:53

-# Sometimes there was laughter #

0:12:540:12:56

-The Cowbois are here.

0:12:580:12:59

-Thanks for coming.

0:13:020:13:04

-Dyl Mei chose Cowbois Rhos Botwnnog

-to accompany Tony and Aloma.

0:13:050:13:10

-I'm fine. What's that?!

0:13:110:13:13

-Have you got

-a clear vision for the song?

0:13:210:13:24

-I'll let the Cowbois be Cowbois.

0:13:240:13:27

-The song's there.

0:13:280:13:30

-We just need a real sound...

0:13:300:13:33

-..and not keyboards

-and fake machines.

0:13:330:13:37

-Roy did a good job of it.

0:13:380:13:41

-I'm bringing his vision

-into the real world.

0:13:420:13:46

-Blimey.

0:13:500:13:52

-We've had an influx of Gogs.

0:13:520:13:55

-Real Gogs.

0:13:550:13:57

-I haven't seen them yet.

0:13:570:13:59

-I could be their grandfather.

-I wandered a lot around Lleyn.

0:14:000:14:04

-That's quite feasible.

0:14:040:14:06

-I haven't seen them yet.

-Is there a blonde there?

0:14:060:14:10

-Is there a bearded blonde there?!

0:14:100:14:12

-Is there a bearded blonde there?!

-

-With blue eyes!

0:14:120:14:13

-"An incident."

0:14:330:14:34

-It sounds nice.

0:14:390:14:41

-How are you?

0:14:410:14:43

-There is a blonde here!

0:14:430:14:45

-Tony just said Lleyn

-was his stomping ground years ago...

0:14:450:14:49

-..and one of you

-could be his grandson.

0:14:490:14:52

-He's the only one from Lleyn!

0:14:520:14:54

-He's good looking, too.

0:14:550:14:57

-Make yourselves at home!

0:14:580:15:00

-I reckon it'll be a late night.

0:15:000:15:03

-While Dyl Mei and

-the band work on the song...

0:15:050:15:09

-..Tony and Aloma look

-for presents for the musicians.

0:15:090:15:13

-They've never been to Blackpool.

-We need to get a stick of rock.

0:15:170:15:21

-Blackpool rock.

0:15:210:15:22

-Blackpool rock.

-

-It's out of season.

0:15:220:15:25

-Is the shop open?

0:15:260:15:27

-Is the shop open?

-

-No.

0:15:270:15:28

-Tulips are growing over there.

0:15:330:15:35

-They're lights!

0:15:350:15:38

-Oh, they're lights!

0:15:410:15:42

-Was it strange

-to hear the band's arrangement?

0:15:450:15:51

-I've mixed emotions.

0:15:530:15:56

-Half of me was excited...

0:15:570:15:59

-..but the other half

-was unsure how it would sound.

0:15:590:16:03

-I'd heard people

-taking about the Cowbois.

0:16:030:16:08

-There's a song about wanting

-to be like Tony and Aloma.

0:16:090:16:14

-Iwan, the main vocalist,

-cocomposed Blackpool Rock.

0:16:150:16:21

-The chorus is, "I don't want to be

-just friends, like Tony and Aloma."

0:16:230:16:28

-I felt a bit bad afterwards.

0:16:290:16:31

-People could misunderstand

-and think it's a bit mean.

0:16:320:16:36

-I was nervous before coming here.

0:16:360:16:39

-I wasn't sure whether they'd

-heard it and if they liked it.

0:16:390:16:43

-Here's Blackpool Rock.

0:16:440:16:46

-Shall we listen to it?

0:16:470:16:48

-Shall we listen to it?

-

-I haven't heard it.

0:16:480:16:50

-What do I press?

0:16:500:16:51

-# And even though

-you found someone else #

0:16:560:16:59

-I'll be crying soon.

0:16:590:17:00

-I'll be crying soon.

-

-# Can we still see each other?

0:17:000:17:04

-# Even though I'm not enough

-to satisfy you #

0:17:050:17:09

-Nice, isn't it?

0:17:090:17:11

-# I don't want

-to be like Tony and Aloma

0:17:130:17:17

-# Loving each other,

-but just like friends

0:17:170:17:21

-# Despite the quarrels

-and heartache #

0:17:220:17:27

-Oh, it's nice!

0:17:270:17:29

-# I don't want

-to be like Tony and Aloma

0:17:300:17:34

-# Loving each other,

-but just like friends

0:17:350:17:38

-# I thought you'd always love me #

0:17:390:17:45

-Oh, fair play!

0:17:450:17:46

-It's nice the way he says it.

0:17:470:17:49

-He doesn't want

-to be like Tony and Aloma.

0:17:500:17:53

-And just be friends.

-It's wrong, in a way.

0:17:530:17:56

-They're in love,

-but just as friends.

0:17:560:17:59

-That really sums us up.

0:18:000:18:03

-Yes.

0:18:030:18:05

-# Oh

0:18:070:18:09

-# Pity I wasn't closer to her

0:18:090:18:13

-# It's hard to be so far apart

0:18:140:18:17

-# A year has passed

0:18:180:18:21

-# And I'm travelling

-further away from a better place

0:18:210:18:26

-# I love her more

-with every step I take

0:18:280:18:31

-# I remember the words of my song

0:18:320:18:35

-# I beg of you

0:18:360:18:40

-# Please come back to me #

0:18:400:18:44

-Are you going down to B flat?

0:18:460:18:48

-I hit the seventh.

0:18:490:18:52

-Tony and Aloma

-gave Dyl Mei and the band...

0:18:540:18:58

-..free rein to adapt Cofion Gorau.

0:18:580:19:01

-Tony has written hundreds of songs.

0:19:020:19:05

-This one is close to his heart.

0:19:050:19:08

-I don't think we'll write any more.

0:19:080:19:13

-This might be the last CD too.

0:19:150:19:17

-I think so.

0:19:180:19:19

-I reckon it'll be the last one.

0:19:200:19:23

-There's something special

-about the song and this CD.

0:19:230:19:27

-It's our swansong.

0:19:280:19:30

-After rehearsing all afternoon, Dyl

-Mei is happy with the arrangement.

0:19:330:19:38

-But will Tony and Aloma be happy?

0:19:380:19:41

-# The best memories

0:19:450:19:47

-# And God at his best

0:19:480:19:51

-# Putting two together

0:19:520:19:55

-# As one, like us #

0:19:560:19:59

-That was OK, wasn't it? It worked

-brilliantly. Was the tempo OK?

0:20:010:20:06

-Was it a little slow?

0:20:060:20:08

-It's slow, but

-there's something nice about that.

0:20:080:20:12

-It sounded nice. It works.

-Could you hear from there?

0:20:120:20:16

-We've got another two bands

-to listen to. We'll get in touch!

0:20:160:20:21

-Can you get off the stage, please?!

0:20:210:20:24

-I've had it since 1970,

-but I haven't looked after it.

0:20:280:20:32

-I didn't look after it.

0:20:320:20:36

-It's before Gibson guitars.

0:20:360:20:38

-We can get the original sound.

0:20:390:20:43

-The new, young Tony and Aloma.

0:20:430:20:46

-Tony doesn't perform

-with his guitar any more.

0:20:460:20:50

-He wants the band

-to use it on the recording.

0:20:510:20:54

-I don't understand

-this sort of thing.

0:20:590:21:02

-They've done their part, now it's up

-to me and Aloma. I'm starting to go!

0:21:040:21:09

-I think that'll make a difference.

0:21:130:21:16

-It's not like being in a studio.

0:21:190:21:22

-You wouldn't get a drink,

-and certainly no sandwiches...

0:21:220:21:27

-..and a chat with whoever's around.

0:21:270:21:30

-Will you stop

-talking about willies?!

0:21:310:21:34

-I'm trying to be serious!

-Do you see what I put up with?!

0:21:340:21:38

-Tony's going to juggle with them.

0:21:390:21:42

-What you don't know is

-I'm a juggler.

0:21:420:21:45

-Ready?

0:21:450:21:47

-Ready?

0:21:490:21:50

-Aloma!

0:21:510:21:53

-I'm always this side of you.

0:22:010:22:03

-It's nice like this.

0:22:030:22:05

-I'm the wrong side of you.

0:22:050:22:07

-Dyl Mei has recorded the band.

0:22:070:22:09

-Tony and Aloma take their place

-on The Gresham stage.

0:22:090:22:14

-Ready?

0:22:180:22:19

-One, two, three, go.

0:22:190:22:21

-# It was only an incident

0:22:220:22:24

-# It happened in an instant

0:22:250:22:28
