-Good afternoon and welcome to our

-final programme before Christmas.

0:00:190:00:22

-A week today, all the presents

-will have been opened...

0:00:220:00:25

-..our bellies will be full and

-the arguments will have started!

0:00:250:00:29

-Don't worry and don't make a

-mountain out of a molehill.

0:00:290:00:32

-We've got mountains and ocean waves

-for you today.

0:00:320:00:35

-A chance to meet one of Welsh

-football's quiet heroes.

0:00:360:00:39

-The solid central defender,

-James Chester.

0:00:400:00:43

-How about some rugby in the wind

-and rain of Merthyr Tydfil?

0:00:450:00:48

-A challenge for anyone...

0:00:490:00:51

-..but especially Bargoed,

-in the Foster's Cup.

0:00:510:00:54

-Top of the pile Cardiff Devils meet

-another frontrunner, Sheffield.

0:00:540:00:58

-That's in the Elite

-Ice Hockey League.

0:00:590:01:01

-I promised you ocean waves so we'll

-meet up with sailor Bleddyn Mon.

0:01:030:01:07

-But what about the mountains?

0:01:140:01:16

-We all know the saying

-"Keeping up with the Joneses".

0:01:160:01:19

-Well, you would never be able to

-keep up with today's studio guest.

0:01:190:01:22

-He is the adventurer, Eric Jones.

0:01:220:01:24

-Welcome to the programme.

0:01:240:01:26

-Thank you.

0:01:260:01:27

-You are about to celebrate

-a big birthday.

0:01:280:01:30

-Can I share the secret

-with our viewers?

0:01:300:01:33

-Of course.

0:01:330:01:35

-In seven days, I'll be 80.

0:01:360:01:37

-Are there big celebrations planned?

0:01:380:01:40

-No.

0:01:400:01:42

-I look forward to chatting with you

-later about your adventures.

0:01:420:01:46

-You have achieved so much,

-so sit back for a little while.

0:01:470:01:51

-Eric Jones is our guest today.

0:01:520:01:54

-Eric is accustomed to climbing

-mountains of ice...

0:01:560:01:58

-..but we have some more sedate ice

-for you now.

0:01:590:02:01

-You don't say that very often

-about ice hockey!

0:02:010:02:04

-Last night, the Cardiff Devils

-played Sheffield.

0:02:040:02:07

-Deja vu for the Devils as they

-welcomed the Steelers to Cardiff...

0:02:100:02:14

-..for the second successive week.

0:02:140:02:16

-The goalless first period was no

-indication of what was to come.

0:02:170:02:20

-Both goalminders were solid.

0:02:210:02:23

-The Steelers scored first two

-minutes into the second period.

0:02:260:02:30

-John Armstrong with the perfect pass

-and Levi Nelson struck.

0:02:300:02:34

-The Devils struck back

-with a very strange goal.

0:02:380:02:40

-The Steelers had possession although

-the Devils had a penalty advantage.

0:02:410:02:45

-Ben O'Connor went for the pass...

0:02:450:02:47

-..but the puck deflected off

-Davey Phillips and into the net.

0:02:470:02:51

-They all count.

0:02:530:02:54

-The final period

-was packed with excitement.

0:02:540:02:56

-Firstly, the Steelers'

-Zack Fitzgerald...

0:02:570:02:59

-..was sent off for five minutes.

0:03:000:03:02

-It was for an offence against

-Devils' player-coach, Andrew Lord.

0:03:030:03:07

-No doubt about that one.

0:03:070:03:09

-The Devils took full advantage.

0:03:110:03:13

-The Steelers were down to five

-players and trying to defend...

0:03:130:03:17

-..but it was too much in the end.

0:03:170:03:19

-Jake Morissette created the chance

-for Joey Martin to score.

0:03:190:03:23

-It was 2-1 to the Devils.

0:03:240:03:25

-The celebrations began but the

-Steelers struck back immediately.

0:03:300:03:34

-Guillaume Desbiens stole the puck

-and Jace Coyle scored.

0:03:340:03:37

-Coyle striking for the Steelers but

-there was no time to take a breath.

0:03:420:03:46

-Less than half a minute later,

-the Devils were back in front.

0:03:460:03:50

-Sean Bentivoglio laid the perfect

-pass to release Josh Batch...

0:03:510:03:55

-..and ensure the victory.

0:03:560:03:57

-3-2 was the score

-and the Devils looked solid...

0:04:030:04:06

-..after their recent thrashing

-by Nottingham.

0:04:060:04:09

-There's a chance for some revenge

-tonight as the teams meet again.

0:04:100:04:14

-The relief was clear

-at the final whistle.

0:04:160:04:19

-Two wins within a week against

-Sheffield is a huge boost.

0:04:210:04:25

-Not that Sheffield were too happy.

0:04:260:04:28

-They play Nottingham tonight before

-turning their attention to the Cup.

0:04:340:04:38

-It's a great view

-from the top of the Elite League.

0:04:380:04:41

-The Devils are flying high

-and Eric Jones is my studio guest.

0:04:460:04:49

-You never seem happier

-than on a mountain.

0:04:520:04:54

-We can see you now with another

-Welsh adventurer, Ioan Doyle.

0:04:560:04:59

-From North Wales to South America.

0:05:010:05:03

-You don't need to guess

-where these two feel at home.

0:05:050:05:08

-What is it about solo climbing

-that attracts you?

0:05:170:05:20

-It's the feeling of freedom.

0:05:210:05:23

-You don't need a partner

-or any equipment.

0:05:250:05:27

-You are totally alone.

0:05:280:05:30

-You have to rely on yourself.

0:05:300:05:32

-It's the purest way of climbing.

0:05:330:05:35

-It's also the most dangerous.

0:05:360:05:38

-The fact that danger is involved

-is what attracts me the most.

0:05:400:05:44

-You are on a steep cliff...

0:05:440:05:46

-..and your life depends

-on the tips of your fingers.

0:05:460:05:49

-Eric Jones with Ioan Doyle.

0:05:580:05:59

-I'm sure a lot of people have asked

-you - what's the attraction?

0:06:000:06:04

-It's been a big part of your life.

0:06:040:06:06

-Adventure.

-I've always been adventurous.

0:06:070:06:09

-I started climbing in Llanberis Pass

-with my friends.

0:06:130:06:19

-My friend found love in Llanberis

-so I was all alone!

0:06:220:06:26

-That's how I started climbing alone.

0:06:280:06:30

-I got a thrill climbing alone

-though it is dangerous.

0:06:310:06:37

-I have a four-year-old son.

-Boys like climbing.

0:06:380:06:41

-You've just carried on doing it!

0:06:420:06:44

-It's natural!

0:06:440:06:45

-Do you remember going abroad

-for the first time?

0:06:460:06:49

-You're from North Wales.

0:06:500:06:51

-There are incredible mountains

-on your doorstep.

0:06:520:06:55

-Do you remember seeing Europe's

-big mountains for the first time?

0:06:550:06:59

-Yes. I'd been climbing in North

-Wales for about three years.

0:07:000:07:03

-A few climbing friends said I had

-to go to Italy, to the Dolomites.

0:07:040:07:08

-I first went there in 1965.

0:07:080:07:09

-I saw the amazing mountains.

0:07:110:07:13

-You've seen some major changes

-in your life.

0:07:160:07:21

-You're about to reach

-a major milestone.

0:07:210:07:23

-Have the mountains changed at all?

0:07:240:07:26

-No.

0:07:270:07:29

-The glaciers have reduced however

-because of global warming.

0:07:290:07:34

-That's the biggest change

-I've seen over the years.

0:07:350:07:38

-Of course.

0:07:380:07:40

-We mentioned North Wales.

0:07:400:07:42

-Eric's been a familiar face on S4C

-for years.

0:07:420:07:45

-In S4C's early years...

0:07:460:07:47

-..a pioneering programme filmed Eric

-live in the Llanberis area.

0:07:480:07:54

-Let's see it.

0:07:550:07:56

-How are things going, Eric?

0:07:590:08:01

-This is John.

0:08:010:08:03

-It's going fairly well.

0:08:040:08:05

-I'm trying to relax.

0:08:060:08:07

-How are your hands?

0:08:080:08:09

-Quite well right now.

0:08:100:08:12

-They'll start hurting

-the further up I go.

0:08:140:08:17

-It's a bit wet and slippery here.

0:08:200:08:24

-I'll let you get on with it then.

0:08:270:08:29

-An early S4C programme.

0:08:320:08:33

-It's hard enough

-answering my silly questions...

0:08:350:08:39

-..but what's it like

-when you're on a rock face?!

0:08:400:08:43

-I was a little nervous.

0:08:430:08:45

-You sounded a little nervous.

-Was that because of TV?

0:08:460:08:49

-It was being done

-in English and Welsh.

0:08:500:08:52

-I spoke English and Welsh in turn.

0:08:520:08:55

-Once I settled down...

0:08:570:08:59

-..I forgot about the cameras

-and concentrated on the climb.

0:08:590:09:04

-It's great looking back.

0:09:060:09:08

-The cameras

-have followed you around.

0:09:090:09:12

-Your story is incredible.

0:09:120:09:14

-Is it nice

-having the cameras follow you?

0:09:150:09:17

-It's good for posterity I suppose.

0:09:180:09:20

-I'm not fond of cameras.

0:09:200:09:22

-I'm not happy

-in front of the cameras.

0:09:220:09:25

-I'd rather focus on climbing.

0:09:250:09:27

-I filmed with Leo Dickinson

-for years.

0:09:270:09:30

-The images are amazing.

0:09:300:09:31

-You mentioned going abroad.

0:09:320:09:34

-The Dolomites and the Eiger

-are iconic.

0:09:340:09:37

-What's it like when you climb solo?

0:09:400:09:43

-It's totally different.

0:09:460:09:49

-You're all alone.

-You have no-one to talk to.

0:09:500:09:53

-Halfway up a mountain,

-you're often on a ledge overnight.

0:09:550:09:59

-You're cold and wet

-and you're in a dangerous place.

0:09:590:10:02

-It showed what kind of personality

-you were.

0:10:040:10:08

-In everyday life,

-you may think you're a strong man.

0:10:080:10:14

-When you're on a ledge

-in the grip of nature...

0:10:160:10:19

-..you're very small and fragile.

0:10:190:10:24

-It's an incredible story.

0:10:250:10:27

-We have a lot more to discuss.

-It's great to have you here.

0:10:280:10:31

-We'll go to a break next.

0:10:310:10:32

-Plenty still to come.

-It's rugby when we come back.

-Welcome back.

0:10:480:10:50

-We turn to rugby now and to

-the Foster's Challenge Cup.

0:10:500:10:53

-This week, Principality

-table-toppers Merthyr Tydfil...

0:10:530:10:57

-..were playing Bargoed,

-the team at the bottom.

0:10:570:11:00

-Surely there could only be

-one winner.

0:11:000:11:02

-Come on, you know the sporting world

-better than that by now!

0:11:020:11:06

-The win is nice, first and foremost.

0:11:140:11:16

-Bargoed is a good, honest place.

0:11:190:11:21

-They'll fly into us, we know that.

0:11:230:11:25

-I know

-they're coming up here strong.

0:11:250:11:27

-Last week, we went out and tried to

-put smiles on faces against Ponty.

0:11:280:11:32

-We wanted to take

-pressure off these boys.

0:11:320:11:34

-They are their own worst critics.

0:11:340:11:36

-Especially with all the success

-we've had in the past.

0:11:370:11:40

-Taking the pressure of the league

-away in the Foster's led to...

0:11:400:11:43

-..some really good play last week

-and we deserved that victory.

0:11:440:11:47

-Hopefully,

-we can build on that tonight.

0:11:480:11:50

-The rolling maul.

0:11:540:11:56

-Who has the ball?

0:11:570:11:59

-They are moving forwards

-towards the try line.

0:11:590:12:02

-They look liked being held up

-but the try has been given.

0:12:030:12:06

-Hooker, Sam Evans, is the scorer.

0:12:070:12:09

-As simple as that.

0:12:110:12:13

-Three line-outs in quick succession

-each followed by a driving maul.

0:12:130:12:17

-Sam Evans scores the

-first try of the evening.

0:12:190:12:22

-The ball slips

-through Locke's fingers.

0:12:240:12:26

-He's a safe pair of hands.

0:12:270:12:29

-Out to Weyman, the No8.

0:12:320:12:33

-He takes on a posse

-of Merthyr defenders.

0:12:340:12:36

-Bancroft on the right.

0:12:370:12:39

-This is the flanker, Coupe.

0:12:400:12:42

-Bancroft has options on both sides.

0:12:450:12:47

-Davies spins it out.

0:12:480:12:49

-Greg Callow goes all the way

-to score the try.

0:12:540:12:56

-He shoved the defender aside.

0:13:000:13:01

-Merthyr were trying to

-pressurize in the tackle area.

0:13:030:13:06

-Callow shoves his way clear

-and scores Bargoed's first try.

0:13:060:13:10

-Weyman to Callow.

0:13:170:13:19

-He hangs onto it.

-He's a powerful centre.

0:13:200:13:23

-Merthyr have stolen it

-under the shadow of the posts.

0:13:240:13:27

-They go to the left and James, the

-scrum half, looks to have scored.

0:13:280:13:32

-It's hard to tell from here.

0:13:350:13:37

-Merthyr have certainly scored

-their second try of this first half.

0:13:370:13:41

-There goes the scissors move.

0:13:440:13:46

-The Merthyr defence

-has been very powerful today.

0:13:480:13:51

-They've had a solid, organized

-defence for the whole game.

0:13:520:13:56

-They have a defence

-that poses a constant threat.

0:13:570:14:00

-Bancroft retains the possession

-and sets it up for Dyer.

0:14:050:14:08

-He runs a clever angle

-and he's found some space.

0:14:100:14:12

-Dyer is going to score.

0:14:120:14:14

-Bargoed have deserved to score

-the try at the start of this half.

0:14:140:14:18

-Patience paid off as Dyer eventually

-beat several men to score.

0:14:190:14:23

-This conversion

-could give Bargoed the lead.

0:14:290:14:32

-Straight down the middle.

0:14:340:14:36

-Bargoed lead by a point.

0:14:370:14:39

-Time is running out so they have

-to throw caution to the wind.

0:14:460:14:50

-Jarvis looked to have

-made a break there.

0:14:500:14:52

-Crossing is the decision.

0:14:530:14:55

-A penalty to the visitors with the

-gap 4 points with 9 minutes left.

0:14:560:15:00

-Jones takes aim.

-He missed with his last effort.

0:15:020:15:05

-He hasn't missed that one.

0:15:060:15:08

-There are men available here.

0:15:090:15:11

-They are five metres out.

0:15:120:15:14

-James out, has it gone forward?

0:15:150:15:17

-Was that one forward?

0:15:190:15:20

-Merthyr have made a mess of that

-and Bargoed can break away.

0:15:210:15:25

-He's trying to stride away but

-Bishop catches him and tackles him.

0:15:260:15:30

-This is an amazing end to the game.

0:15:330:15:37

-Bargoed are trying to seal the win.

0:15:390:15:41

-There are some very tired legs

-trying to get back in defence.

0:15:420:15:45

-Hallett kicks it dead.

0:15:460:15:47

-What a finish!

0:15:480:15:50

-A couple of our boys

-just didn't front up tonight.

0:15:510:15:53

-They treated it as the Foster's Cup.

0:15:550:15:57

-That's a bit disrespectful,

-to be honest with you.

0:15:590:16:02

-We didn't pay them half-wages this

-week because it was Foster's Cup.

0:16:040:16:08

-Every time you put the jersey on

-you have to put in a shift.

0:16:090:16:14

-We didn't do that today.

-Bargoed took advantage.

0:16:140:16:17

-Pontypridd against Ebbw Vale

-was the other game in Pool 3.

0:16:200:16:24

-Ponty dominated the first half.

0:16:240:16:26

-Ceri Sweeney waltzed over for

-the first try of the afternoon.

0:16:270:16:31

-The home team continued

-to take it to Ebbw Vale...

0:16:320:16:35

-..and Huw Dowden

-was the next to score.

0:16:360:16:38

-The visitors had a chance to fight

-back after a Ceri Sweeney kick.

0:16:400:16:44

-Ryan Gardner collected on the wing

-and beat the defence...

0:16:450:16:48

-..before offloading to Adam Lane.

0:16:480:16:51

-The home team racked up the tries

-in the second half.

0:16:570:17:00

-The last word went to Callum Hall

-who raced away for a final try.

0:17:010:17:04

-A comfortable win for Ponty.

0:17:060:17:07

-Despite losing,

-Merthyr are still top of Pool 3.

0:17:150:17:18

-What a result for Bargoed

-in that match.

0:17:230:17:25

-But what about the rest of the pools

-in the Foster's Challenge Cup?

0:17:260:17:30

-Let's find out what happened.

0:17:300:17:32

-In Pool 1,

-it was Bedwas versus Cross Keys.

0:17:360:17:38

-The visitors got off to a great

-start with Jacob Unwin scoring.

0:17:390:17:43

-The home team was happy

-to play counter-attacking rugby.

0:17:450:17:49

-A mistake in defence allowed Andy

-Evans to dive on the ball and score.

0:17:490:17:53

-Both sides were guilty of errors

-with neither one taking advantage.

0:17:580:18:02

-Adam Williams showed his power

-to extend the home team's lead.

0:18:040:18:08

-Bedwas were determined to leave

-an impression on the second half.

0:18:110:18:15

-rounded off with a victory roll.

0:18:150:18:19

-Bedwas did manage one last try

-before the final whistle.

0:18:220:18:25

-Taine Basham with the score.

0:18:260:18:28

-Newport were taking a break

-but Bedwas move above Cross Keys.

0:18:290:18:33

-The pass is for Craig Evans.

0:18:360:18:38

-Evans breaks through far too easily.

0:18:390:18:41

-Evans feeds the fullback, Banfield.

0:18:420:18:44

-Does Banfield have the pace?

-Yes, he does.

0:18:440:18:47

-He's put the visitors ahead.

0:18:480:18:50

-Adam Thresher is lifted

-and catches the ball.

0:18:530:18:56

-It's a prepared move by the backs.

0:18:570:18:59

-Richard Williams makes the break

-and David Watts is in support.

0:18:590:19:03

-Watts heads for the corner

-and Swansea have equalized.

-A scrum for the Quins.

0:19:080:19:09

0:19:100:19:11

0:19:110:19:13

-Evans with a perfect kick

-for the winger, Kieran Jones.

0:19:140:19:17

-Chris Banfield will score

-his second try of the game.

0:19:180:19:21

-He's crossed again.

0:19:230:19:24

-It's a strong scrum by the Quins.

0:19:270:19:29

-They are headed for the corner.

0:19:300:19:32

-It's going to be a try. The referee

-has given the penalty try instead.

0:19:330:19:39

-Quins look like extending their run

-of wins against Swansea to 10 games.

0:19:390:19:43

-Haydn Pugh to Callum Price.

0:19:430:19:45

-Chris Banfield is there

-to score his hat-trick.

0:19:450:19:48

-The star of the game

-shines right to the end.

0:19:490:19:51

-Both these sides were blooding fresh

-talent as Llandovery took the lead.

0:19:520:19:56

-Tom Powell with the opening try.

0:19:570:19:59

-Llanelli fought back with a try

-by young fullback, Leon Randall.

0:20:020:20:05

-A strong foundation by the pack...

0:20:060:20:09

-..allowed Nathan Hart

-to give the home team the lead.

0:20:090:20:12

-The No.8 looked like a wing

-sprinting past the Drover defence.

0:20:180:20:21

-He rounded it off with

-a try-scoring pass to Ed Curtis.

0:20:220:20:25

-The first half ended with

-the crucial bonus point try.

0:20:260:20:29

-Nathan Edwards

-side-stepping his way to the line.

0:20:300:20:33

-Edwards scored

-another try in the second half.

0:20:350:20:38

-Elliott Rees then crowned a

-good performance with a final try.

0:20:390:20:43

-Four out of four for the Quins.

0:20:440:20:46

-They are the

-runaway leaders of Pool 2.

0:20:470:20:49

-Bridgend lead Pool 4

-after beating Aberavon.

0:20:510:20:54

-The visitors started well with

-a great try by Michael Wilson.

0:20:560:21:00

-The visitors fought back

-at the Brewery Field...

0:21:040:21:06

-..with Matthew Edwards' first try.

0:21:070:21:09

-There was a chance for

-another score before half-time.

0:21:160:21:19

-Rapid passing by the backs

-allowing Kyle Maiden to score.

0:21:200:21:23

-In a competitive match, the visitors

-fought back after the break.

0:21:260:21:30

-They scored from

-an attacking line-out.

0:21:310:21:34

-Luke Davies tears the ball

-out of the maul...

0:21:340:21:37

-..before driving over the line.

0:21:370:21:39

-Bridgend fought back fiercely.

0:21:390:21:41

-Matthew Edwards scored

-his second try in the corner.

0:21:420:21:45

-Both sides claimed a bonus point

-by scoring four tries apiece.

0:21:490:21:53

-However, Bridgend denied their

-opponents a losing bonus point.

0:21:540:21:58

-Centre Joe Gatt dancing

-his way to the line to ground it.

0:21:590:22:02

-The second game in Pool 4

-was between Cardiff and Neath.

0:22:050:22:09

-Both these teams were trying to

-avoid being bottom of the table.

0:22:090:22:13

-Josh Guy scored first

-for the visitors.

0:22:130:22:16

-A massive gap in the Neath defence

-allowed Will Rees-Hole to reply.

0:22:170:22:21

-The Neath attack looked dangerous

-and Rory Morgan-Williams...

0:22:240:22:28

-..launched a perfect kick

-for Ed Howley to collect...

0:22:290:22:32

-..and offload to Gavin Evans

-who beat his man and scored.

0:22:330:22:36

-Cardiff stayed in the game thanks

-to Cameron Gibbon winning this race.

0:22:390:22:44

-However, Neath clinched the win with

-a third try scored by Leon Ward.

0:22:450:22:49

-It's tight at the top of Pool 4.

0:22:530:22:55

-Bridgend lead

-Aberavon and Neath at the moment.

0:22:560:22:59

-Lowri Wynn and Rhys Llwyd...

0:23:010:23:03

-..with the round-up

-from the Foster's Challenge Cup.

0:23:030:23:06

-This week's competition

-concerns rugby too.

0:23:070:23:10

-You could see two Pro12 derbies

-over the festive period.

0:23:100:23:14

-We have two pairs of tickets.

0:23:150:23:17

-These are the games.

0:23:180:23:20

-The Scarlets play Ospreys

-on Tuesday, 27 December.

0:23:200:23:23

-Scarlets play The Blues

-on New Year's Day.

0:23:240:23:26

-All you have to do

-is answer this question.

0:23:270:23:30

-Which Welsh region finished highest

-in last season's Pro12 competition?

0:23:320:23:36

-Send your answers to

-clwb@rondomedia.co.uk.

0:23:410:23:44

-Entries must be in by midday

-tomorrow, 19 December.

0:23:470:23:50

-Good luck.

0:23:510:23:53

-Two pairs of tickets.

0:23:540:23:55

-It's been a great afternoon

-for the Scarlets.

0:23:560:23:59

-They beat Toulon in

-the European Champions Cup.

0:23:590:24:02

-The final score was 22-21

-at Parc y Scarlets.

0:24:030:24:06

-Leigh Halfpenny

-kicked all Toulon's points...

0:24:100:24:13

-..but missed a last-minute kick.

0:24:130:24:15

-The Scarlets celebrated.

0:24:160:24:17

-Their hopes of qualifying

-are still alive.

0:24:190:24:21

-They stay third in their pool

-but a superb win against Toulon.

0:24:230:24:27

-It's a good start to the season

-of goodwill for the Scarlets.

0:24:270:24:31

-After the break, we'll be venturing

-into the sea. Don't go away.

-Subtitles

0:24:480:24:50

-Welcome back.

0:24:500:24:51

-I promised you mountains and ocean

-waves at the start of the programme.

0:24:520:24:55

-We've discussed mountains,

-so let's venture out to sea...

0:24:560:24:59

-..and to the Vendee Globe race.

0:24:590:25:00

-Welshman Alex Thomson was leading

-but it got a bit tighter last week.

0:25:010:25:04

-Let's find out

-what has been happening.

0:25:050:25:07

-The tempestuous southern oceans...

0:25:080:25:10

-..have left their mark on some

-of the Vendee Globe boats.

0:25:110:25:14

-It's a solo race and you can't

-receive any assistance.

0:25:140:25:17

-Romain Attansio had to steer

-his boat to Simon's Bay...

0:25:180:25:21

-..in order to spend two days

-fixing his rudder.

0:25:210:25:24

-I'm ready to go.

0:25:250:25:27

-I'm just waiting for the varnish

-to dry on the carbon plates.

0:25:270:25:30

-With seven boats already out,

-Romain is in 22nd and last place...

0:25:310:25:34

-..7,770 miles behind the leader,

-Armel Le Cleac'h.

0:25:350:25:38

-Welshman Alex Thomson is hot

-on the heels of the Frenchman.

0:25:430:25:47

-Flying down waves of 30 knots

-sometimes...

0:25:480:25:51

-..before coming to an almost

-complete standstill.

0:25:510:25:54

-It means you are thrown around

-all over the place.

0:25:560:25:59

-You can hear the water

-rushing over the deck.

0:25:590:26:02

-It's now that your mind starts

-to wonder what's going to happen.

0:26:050:26:09

-What happens if the structure fails

-or if you hit something?

0:26:110:26:15

-I do wonder why I do it sometimes.

0:26:160:26:18

-As the top two boats

-pass by New Zealand...

0:26:210:26:23

-..there is nothing

-that Alex Thomson...

0:26:230:26:25

-..who is sailing

-without a port-side foil...

0:26:250:26:28

-..can do but watch Armel Le Cleac'h

-stretch his advantage.

0:26:280:26:32

-We are currently about nine days

-to Cape Horn.

0:26:330:26:36

-That's generally the theme

-of what's happening.

0:26:380:26:41

-Probably going to go around it

-Christmas Day.

0:26:420:26:45

-The situation is changing a lot.

0:26:450:26:47

-Sometimes, I've got Banque Populaire

-two and a half days ahead.

0:26:480:26:52

-Sometimes, Banque Populaire

-is 12 hours ahead.

0:26:520:26:55

-And sometimes, the guys behind

-are within a day of me.

0:26:550:26:59

-The situation is fluid, shall I say,

-changing a lot.

0:27:000:27:03

-I'm trying not to get frustrated

-about it.

0:27:030:27:05

-There is nothing I can do.

0:27:060:27:07

-There is no point

-in getting frustrated.

0:27:070:27:09

-The boats behind Hugo Boss

-are battling with the wild sea.

0:27:100:27:15

-The storm should pass quickly,

-but it will be fierce.

0:27:160:27:19

-We expect winds

-of around 50 to 60 knots.

0:27:220:27:25

-The biggest problem for the boats

-is sailing at a decent pace...

0:27:250:27:29

-..to keep ahead or behind the storm.

0:27:290:27:31

-Sailing too close to the eye of the

-storm can be extremely dangerous.

0:27:310:27:35

-It's a lack of wind that

-is troubling Armel and Alex.

0:27:530:27:56

-There's 190 miles between them as

-their boats slow down tremendously.

0:27:580:28:02

-Strategically,

-the next few days are crucial.

0:28:030:28:06

-I am going to change my rhythm.

0:28:080:28:09

-I will calm down, allowing me to

-breathe, rest and do some repairs.

0:28:110:28:15

-A few things need some attention,

-but nothing serious.

0:28:190:28:22

-It has to be done to ensure

-the boat is 100% efficient...

0:28:230:28:26

-..ready for the next challenge.

0:28:280:28:30

-The next challenge...

0:28:300:28:32

-..is to be the first to reach

-Cape Horn by Christmas Day.

0:28:320:28:35

-The Vendee Globe.

-We'll continue following that.

0:28:410:28:44

-The daredevil Eric Jones

-is my studio guest.

0:28:460:28:48

-Have you done any sailing?

0:28:490:28:51

-No, it looks too dangerous for me.

0:28:550:28:57

-When I was on holiday,

-when my daughters were young...

0:28:580:29:01

-..my wife and children were strong

-swimmers but I'm a weak swimmer.

0:29:020:29:06

-My children said, "Mam, Dad doesn't

-like having water in his eyes."

0:29:070:29:11

-I'll stick

-to parachuting and climbing.

0:29:120:29:15

-Stick to parachuting!

0:29:150:29:17

-I'm sure you can relate

-to a solo sailor's mentality...

0:29:190:29:22

-..as he takes on the elements.

0:29:230:29:24

-There's a similarity to what you do.

0:29:250:29:26

-There's a similarity to what you do.

-

-It's very similar.

0:29:260:29:28

-Sailing on the oceans takes a lot

-more time than climbing a mountain.

0:29:290:29:34

-There's loneliness in both but

-I enjoyed being by myself at times.

0:29:350:29:42

-It's nice being alone sometimes.

0:29:420:29:45

-We have more sailing next.

0:29:450:29:47

-If the Vendee

-is the Everest of the seas...

0:29:480:29:50

-..next, the sailing challenge

-for teams, the America's Cup.

0:29:520:29:55

-It's one of the oldest competitions

-in the world.

0:29:560:29:59

-It all happens in Bermuda next year.

0:29:590:30:01

-It's hotting up with a Welshman

-in the middle of it all.

0:30:020:30:05

-When his team won the last regatta

-in Fukuoka, Japan, in November...

0:30:060:30:10

-..to win the sailing World Series...

0:30:110:30:13

-..Ben Ainslie realized

-the first part of the dream...

0:30:130:30:16

-..of building a British team...

0:30:160:30:18

-..that could win the America's Cup

-in Bermuda next May.

0:30:190:30:22

-Two and a half years ago, we started

-with a blank sheet of paper.

0:30:220:30:26

-To achieve what we have, on and off

-the water, I'm very proud.

0:30:260:30:29

-Our sights are now set

-on Bermuda for the America's Cup.

0:30:310:30:34

-No British team

-has ever won the Cup...

0:30:350:30:37

-..which has strong links to Wales.

0:30:370:30:39

-Marquis Paget,

-the first Marquis of Anglesey...

0:30:400:30:43

-..gave it as a prize at a regatta

-at the Isle of Wight in 1851.

0:30:430:30:47

-One member of the team is aiming

-to bring the Cup back to Anglesey.

0:30:480:30:51

-Born and bred on the island...

0:30:530:30:54

-..we spoke to Bleddyn Mon before

-he set sail for the Caribbean.

0:30:550:30:59

-We're on Traeth Bychan.

0:31:010:31:03

-It's a very important place for me.

-This is where the journey started.

0:31:040:31:08

-It's where I first went out

-on the water almost 20 years ago.

0:31:110:31:15

-We've had a busy summer

-in Portsmouth.

0:31:150:31:17

-We stopped testing two weeks ago.

0:31:170:31:20

-Since then, we've packed up, got the

-containers ready to go to Bermuda...

0:31:200:31:25

-..and had a break

-before it all ramps up next month.

0:31:250:31:28

-I'm home at the moment,

-having a little holiday.

0:31:280:31:31

-..and had a break

-before it all ramps up next month.

0:31:310:31:34

-I'm home at the moment,

-having a little holiday.

0:31:350:31:38

-It's a while since my last holiday,

-probably at the start of the year.

0:31:390:31:42

-It's nice to be back home relaxing.

0:31:430:31:45

-Bleddyn's idea of relaxing

-won't be to everyone's taste.

0:31:450:31:49

-I spend a lot of time on the bike

-on Anglesey and around Snowdonia.

0:31:500:31:54

-It's incredible.

-I couldn't do it in Portsmouth.

0:31:540:31:57

-We have a specific programme

-so biking doesn't fit in.

0:31:580:32:01

-It's nice to be out

-and enjoy the fresh air.

0:32:020:32:04

-Fresh air is something

-he has plenty of in Portsmouth too.

0:32:070:32:10

-We've had a very good summer.

0:32:120:32:14

-We sailed on the Solent in two

-boats. We tested a lot of things.

0:32:160:32:20

-We raced two boats

-against each other.

0:32:210:32:23

-It's been great.

0:32:230:32:24

-Sailing the boats every day

-has been incredible.

0:32:250:32:27

-Being out on the water...

0:32:280:32:29

-..and sailing the most modern and

-fastest boat in the world is great.

0:32:290:32:33

-As a sailing team,

-we have twelve sailors.

0:32:380:32:41

-Every boat has six sailors.

0:32:410:32:43

-My role in the team is to trim the

-wing - the large sail in the back.

0:32:440:32:48

-I'm also the grinder,

-who creates the power for the boat.

0:32:500:32:53

-Everything on the boat is powered

-by the people who sail it.

0:32:550:32:59

-We have to turn the pedestals

-to create the power.

0:33:000:33:03

-No-one's yet been named

-a team member for next year's Cup.

0:33:030:33:07

-There'll be six on the boat.

0:33:070:33:09

-Some of those could change for every

-race to ensure people are fresh.

0:33:120:33:16

-I'm working hard

-to get myself there next year.

0:33:180:33:21

-Until Christmas,

-we'll have one boat in Bermuda.

0:33:260:33:29

-After Christmas,

-we'll launch the racing boat...

0:33:300:33:33

-..which is the one we'll use

-for the Cup.

0:33:330:33:36

-It'll be an exciting time as it'll

-have the upgrades from the testing.

0:33:370:33:41

-It'll be the pinnacle of our design.

0:33:440:33:46

-Sailing it on the water

-will be great.

0:33:510:33:53

-Then we build

-for the first race in May.

0:33:550:33:57

-A big year for Bleddyn Mon.

0:34:020:34:04

-We'll be following him on Clwb.

0:34:050:34:07

-I'm joined by Eric Jones,

-the adventurer.

0:34:080:34:11

-You said you weren't keen

-on venturing into the water.

0:34:120:34:15

-Almost like Dai Jones!

0:34:150:34:17

-You've been on S4C with Dai.

0:34:180:34:20

-We delved into the archives.

-Here's Eric with Dai on an airplane.

0:34:210:34:25

-It's worth a look.

0:34:260:34:28

-How are you, Dai?

0:34:320:34:33

-How are you, Dai?

-

-Not good.

0:34:330:34:34

-It's nice outside.

0:34:360:34:38

-We're at about 3,000 feet.

0:34:390:34:41

-3,500.

0:34:420:34:44

-You'll jump at 4,000.

0:34:450:34:46

-You'll jump at 4,000.

-

-Yes.

0:34:460:34:47

-Good luck to you.

0:34:480:34:51

-Good luck to you.

-

-Thank you.

0:34:510:34:52

-Out into the fresh air.

0:34:530:34:54

-Superb.

0:35:050:35:07

-You jumped as if it was nothing.

0:35:080:35:10

-Dai Jones didn't look as happy.

0:35:110:35:12

-I felt for him...

0:35:140:35:15

-..as he'd never been in an airplane

-without a door and seats.

0:35:160:35:20

-Did he get a fright

-when you jumped out?

0:35:200:35:23

-When I jumped...

0:35:230:35:24

-..the pilot put the airplane

-on its side so he could see me.

0:35:250:35:28

-Dai got scared

-and grabbed the cameraman's legs.

0:35:280:35:31

-You were obviously

-enjoying yourself.

0:35:310:35:34

-I've never jumped. What's it like

-when you're plummeting to earth?

0:35:350:35:39

-It's an experience.

0:35:420:35:44

-The freedom of flying is incredible.

0:35:450:35:48

-When did you start?

0:35:480:35:50

-1961.

0:35:500:35:51

-A year before I started climbing.

0:35:520:35:54

-You enjoyed it immediately

-I'm sure.

0:35:560:35:58

-Yes.

0:35:580:36:00

-The problem was I didn't have much

-money. Parachuting is expensive.

0:36:000:36:04

-I started climbing

-and it took over my life.

0:36:050:36:08

-Climbing and parachuting.

0:36:110:36:13

-The poet Gwenallt

-said that when you turn 50...

0:36:150:36:18

-..you see what's affected your life.

0:36:180:36:21

-You turned 50

-and started basejumping!

0:36:210:36:23

-Basejumping

-is jumping from a fixed structure.

0:36:240:36:27

-How did you start doing that?

0:36:290:36:31

-I've done everything late in life.

0:36:320:36:34

-I solo climbed the Eiger

-when I was 43.

0:36:370:36:39

-I got married when I was 49 and

-started basejumping when I was 50.

0:36:400:36:44

-I jumped into the Cave of Swallows

-when I was 66.

0:36:470:36:49

-In Mexico.

0:36:530:36:54

-You talked about jumping.

0:36:550:36:57

-You've done the biggest waterfalls

-in the world, the Angel Falls.

0:36:580:37:01

-When I was 61.

0:37:020:37:03

-Incredible. What was that like?

-That's my question for everything!

0:37:040:37:08

-I can't imagine throwing myself

-from those huge waterfalls.

0:37:090:37:12

-Here's a picture.

0:37:120:37:13

-It's totally different

-to jumping out of a plane.

0:37:140:37:17

-When you jump out of a plane...

0:37:170:37:19

-..you don't know you're falling

-at over 100mph.

0:37:200:37:23

-When you jump off the Angel Falls,

-you know you're falling at 100mph.

0:37:240:37:28

-You see the rocks passing you.

0:37:280:37:30

-It's an amazing experience.

0:37:300:37:32

-The images are astounding.

0:37:320:37:34

-Eric, it's an experience

-to be in your company...

0:37:340:37:37

-..not to mention to attempt

-what you've done.

0:37:370:37:39

-After the break,

-we turn to football.

0:37:390:37:41

-We have a hero in the studio.

0:37:420:37:43

-We take a look at one of the quiet

-heroes of the Wales football team...

0:37:440:37:47

-..when we come back,

-defender James Chester.

0:37:480:37:51

-Subtitles

0:37:590:38:00

-Subtitles

0:38:010:38:02

-Welcome back.

0:38:030:38:05

-Football now and to Wrexham,

-who had lost three successive games.

0:38:060:38:10

-Everyone was under pressure during

-their visit to Sutton yesterday.

0:38:100:38:15

-Amankwaah with the throw

-for Wrexham.

0:38:230:38:26

-They fail to clear and the ball

-is in the back of the net.

0:38:260:38:29

-Riley is the man

-who turned the ball past Jalal.

0:38:320:38:34

-The defence fails to clear...

0:38:360:38:38

-..and Gomis pressurizes Riley

-who scores the own goal.

0:38:390:38:42

-Rooney back to Carrington.

0:38:470:38:49

-Carrington crosses

-but the ball flies over White.

0:38:510:38:54

-Kai Edwards' shot

-deflects off the defender.

0:38:550:38:58

-The ball falls to Rooney.

0:38:590:39:01

-Sutton try to clear it.

0:39:020:39:03

-Back to Barry and Kai Edwards.

0:39:050:39:07

-Rooney shoots once again. That

-effort was miles wide of the target.

0:39:100:39:14

-Wrexham are starting to press.

0:39:150:39:16

-Evans to White.

0:39:190:39:20

-He doesn't control it well.

0:39:210:39:22

-Rooney takes it up as the visitors

-continue to press.

0:39:230:39:26

-Rooney's effort

-bounces off a defender this time.

0:39:270:39:29

-Sutton scramble it away.

0:39:300:39:31

-Deacon

-gets the better of Carrington.

0:39:320:39:34

-Tubbs is there in support.

0:39:350:39:37

-Deacon has seen the run.

0:39:380:39:40

-Tubbs has been pushed

-towards the touchline.

0:39:420:39:44

-He shoots

-and Jalal had to make the save.

0:39:500:39:52

-Bailey has plenty of options

-to pick out for Sutton here.

0:39:530:39:56

-Deacon brings it down,

-turns and shoots.

0:39:580:40:00

-Jalal had to make the save again.

0:40:030:40:05

-SECOND HALF

0:40:060:40:07

-Amankwaah to Biamou.

0:40:100:40:11

-Biamou set up Tubbs for the shot.

0:40:150:40:17

-Wrexham were relieved to see

-that disappear wide of the post.

0:40:190:40:23

-The long throw.

0:40:230:40:25

-Dundas beats Rob Evans.

0:40:260:40:27

-Biamou shoots from

-the edge of the penalty box.

0:40:290:40:32

-It's wide again

-and Wrexham escape again.

0:40:330:40:36

-Not good enough.

0:40:380:40:39

-We conceded an own goal.

0:40:390:40:41

-The lads knew what their strengths

-were to get the ball wide.

0:40:420:40:46

-They had a lad who could

-launch the long throws.

0:40:460:40:49

-It missed the first man and Riley

-managed to find the top corner.

0:40:510:40:55

-Are there any positives

-from today's defeat?

0:40:550:40:58

-Not really.

0:40:590:41:00

-There was a good reaction

-by Rob Evans to being left out.

0:41:000:41:03

-He came on and won a few tackles.

0:41:030:41:04

-We need people to start competing

-for places going forward.

0:41:050:41:08

-Jordan White got 90 minutes in.

-That's a positive.

0:41:090:41:12

-We had a couple of half-chances

-at the end that we needed to take.

0:41:130:41:16

-Two games against Southport next.

0:41:160:41:18

-Are you worried

-because they are below you?

0:41:180:41:21

-We have that

-massive home game coming up.

0:41:210:41:24

-The club's position

-just isn't good enough.

0:41:240:41:27

-We've got to get a massive

-performance and three points.

0:41:280:41:32

-Will there be a few changes

-in January?

0:41:330:41:35

-Yes, it just

-hasn't been good enough.

0:41:370:41:39

-We had one high

-against Forest Green.

0:41:400:41:42

-Since then,

-we haven't scored a goal.

0:41:430:41:45

-It's not been good enough.

0:41:460:41:47

-Wrexham are closer to the bottom

-than the play-off places...

0:41:490:41:52

-..after losing three in a row.

0:41:520:41:54

-Big games against Southport

-coming up over Christmas.

0:41:540:41:58

-Dean Keates wasn't a happy man

-after Wrexham's defeat to Sutton.

0:42:000:42:03

-Eric Jones is my guest.

0:42:030:42:05

-We've discussed mountains

-but you're also a football man.

0:42:050:42:09

-Someone told me that you will

-celebrate your birthday in style.

0:42:100:42:13

-Where will you be on your birthday?

0:42:130:42:15

-Every time on my birthday,

-I like to go climbing or walking.

0:42:160:42:20

-This year, there is a big occasion

-at the Oval in Caernarfon.

0:42:210:42:25

-I like watching Porthmadog playing

-and also Caernarfon.

0:42:280:42:31

-They play each other on my birthday.

0:42:320:42:34

-I hope it will be a draw, 3-3.

0:42:360:42:38

-Three for Darren Thomas and three

-for Cai Jones for Porthmadog!

0:42:420:42:46

-Everyone's happy!

0:42:460:42:47

-Have you watched a lot of football

-during your lifetime?

0:42:480:42:51

-I lived in Flint during the 1970s.

0:42:510:42:53

-I used to go to watch Liverpool.

0:42:540:42:55

-At that time there would be

-15,000 standing on the Kop.

0:42:560:42:59

-The atmosphere was amazing.

0:43:000:43:01

-From being all alone

-on the rock face to a packed Kop.

0:43:030:43:06

-More football now and what a year

-it has been for Welsh football.

0:43:070:43:10

-The year of Euro 2016.

0:43:130:43:15

-The unforgettable summer.

0:43:170:43:18

-There were so many stars with Bale

-and Ramsey grabbing the headlines.

0:43:200:43:24

-However, one quiet hero

-was absolutely key.

0:43:250:43:27

-He is relatively new

-to the national set-up.

0:43:290:43:31

-It's the Aston Villa defender,

-James Chester.

0:43:320:43:35

-It's been two years since Chris

-Coleman made James Chester Welsh.

0:43:390:43:43

-He settled into the team quickly

-becoming a crucial component.

0:43:440:43:47

-However, he wasn't part of

-Tony Pulis' plans at West Brom.

0:43:480:43:51

-Luckily, nearby

-but now in a lower division...

0:43:510:43:54

-..another Birmingham giant

-was interested.

0:43:540:43:57

-There was also an old pal

-on the way to Aston Villa.

0:43:570:44:00

-I met up with

-James Chester recently.

0:44:000:44:02

-You went from the semi-finals

-of the European Championships...

0:44:030:44:06

-..to looking for a club.

0:44:060:44:08

-A bit surreal but what attracted you

-to Aston Villa?

0:44:090:44:12

-Once I got over the hurdle

-of going down a division...

0:44:130:44:16

-..there wasn't much left

-for me to think about.

0:44:170:44:20

-It was coming in

-and playing at a great club.

0:44:210:44:24

-Being in contention to play in every

-game like I've done since I moved.

0:44:250:44:29

-People are obsessed

-with playing in the Premier League.

0:44:290:44:32

-Is it an issue for you?

0:44:320:44:34

-Not after the year I had at West

-Brom, not playing as much as I want.

0:44:350:44:39

-Being in the Premier League

-didn't matter as much after that.

0:44:390:44:43

-It was more important for me to be

-in contention to play every week.

0:44:440:44:48

-Then Steve Bruce rocks up.

-That must have been a nice surprise.

0:44:490:44:52

-It can always work two ways.

0:44:530:44:54

-I'd never played under the gaffer.

0:44:560:44:58

-I might not have been

-his type of player.

0:44:580:45:00

-My time at Hull had been

-really successful under the gaffer.

0:45:030:45:06

-We got promotion

-and the run to the cup final.

0:45:070:45:10

-With his record I thought

-he was the perfect man...

0:45:110:45:14

-..to come in

-and try and get us going.

0:45:140:45:16

-You've even broken your nose

-in tribute to him.

0:45:170:45:20

-Following in his footsteps.

0:45:200:45:22

-Hopefully, it's in a better

-condition than the gaffer's.

0:45:230:45:25

-It was a really good job but it's

-taken 27 years for me to break it.

0:45:260:45:30

-Was there a relegation hangover

-hanging over the club?

0:45:300:45:33

-Are they over it now?

0:45:330:45:34

-We're moving in the right direction.

0:45:350:45:37

-We were unbeaten in seven games

-before the Leeds game.

0:45:380:45:40

-That was a decent run.

0:45:410:45:42

-If we go on runs like that,

-I'm sure by the end of the season...

0:45:430:45:47

-..we'll be there or thereabouts.

0:45:480:45:50

-Are Wales also having

-a bit of a post-Euros hangover?

0:45:510:45:55

-The expectations have changed a bit.

0:45:570:45:59

-Had we been in our current position

-a few years ago...

0:45:590:46:02

-..people would have been happy.

0:46:020:46:04

-We're still in contention

-for qualifying for the World Cup.

0:46:040:46:08

-Now we've tasted success

-in the Euros, we all want more.

0:46:080:46:11

-We're still unbeaten in the group.

0:46:120:46:14

-We've been a bit unlucky

-with conceding goals late on.

0:46:140:46:17

-We did that against Serbia but

-the Georgia game was disappointing.

0:46:170:46:21

-We're still only

-four points behind Ireland.

0:46:210:46:23

-We still have to play them twice.

0:46:240:46:25

-I don't see any reason

-why we can't beat them.

0:46:260:46:28

-The summer was unbelievable.

0:46:280:46:30

-What was it like in Brittany,

-Bordeaux and everywhere else?

0:46:300:46:33

-An incredible experience.

0:46:340:46:35

-Having done so well, it was

-a shame not to make the final.

0:46:370:46:40

-The experience as a whole,

-playing the games...

0:46:400:46:43

-..spending time with each other

-in the hotel in Dinard...

0:46:430:46:47

-..is something we'll remember

-for the rest of our careers.

0:46:470:46:50

-It was great our families

-were there with us.

0:46:500:46:53

-It was nice for them

-to be a part of it.

0:46:530:46:55

-Could Wales have won it?

0:46:550:46:56

-There wasn't any reason

-why we couldn't have done.

0:46:570:47:00

-Whoever scored first in

-the Portugal game was a huge factor.

0:47:000:47:04

-All of us look back

-at what might have been.

0:47:050:47:08

-You don't reach such heights

-very often in football.

0:47:100:47:13

-Hopefully, we can go again

-and go one step further.

0:47:140:47:17

-That first goal was amazing.

0:47:170:47:19

-I've never seen a header

-like Ronaldo's in my life.

0:47:190:47:22

-It's no consolation

-conceding that goal.

0:47:220:47:25

-It was amazing though.

-Have you watched it back?

0:47:250:47:28

-I have seen it back.

0:47:290:47:30

-On a personal note...

0:47:310:47:33

-..you're disappointed

-if you're down to mark him.

0:47:330:47:36

-If that's the only negative from

-the Euros, I'll hold my hands up.

0:47:370:47:41

-It was some jump.

0:47:430:47:45

-It's the end of the year

-so there are a couple of questions.

0:47:460:47:49

-Sporting highlight of the year

-apart from the Euros.

0:47:490:47:52

-That's very harsh.

0:47:520:47:54

-It is harsh but there is

-another great achievement this year.

0:47:550:47:59

-Leicester winning the Premier League

-has to be up there.

0:48:000:48:03

-It's something we won't see again

-for an awfully long time.

0:48:030:48:06

-Could you have gone there?

0:48:070:48:08

-I've heard reports

-that you might have gone there.

0:48:080:48:11

-It's not one of my finest decisions.

0:48:130:48:15

-Leicester came in with a bid when I

-was having a medical at West Brom.

0:48:180:48:22

-I spoke to Tony Pulis and decided

-West Brom was the right move.

0:48:230:48:27

-In hindsight,

-it would have been lovely...

0:48:290:48:31

-..to have

-a Premier League winners medal.

0:48:320:48:34

-It wasn't to be.

0:48:340:48:35

-Sportsman of the Year?

0:48:360:48:37

-It goes without saying

-it's Gareth Bale.

0:48:380:48:40

-He won the Champions League as well.

0:48:400:48:42

-Joe Allen and Rambo

-were also brilliant.

0:48:430:48:45

-Joe has taken the Premier League

-by storm since then.

0:48:460:48:50

-A few Liverpool fans

-must be wondering why they sold him.

0:48:520:48:56

-There wouldn't be any complaints

-if it was one of them three.

0:48:570:49:01

-On behalf of everyone,

-2016 will stay with us forever.

0:49:020:49:04

-Good luck next year.

0:49:050:49:06

-I hope it's a good year for you,

-for Wales and for Aston Villa.

0:49:060:49:09

-Thanks very much.

0:49:090:49:10

-Thanks very much.

-

-Thank you.

0:49:100:49:11

-It was great to meet James Chester.

0:49:110:49:14

-Aston Villa are performing much

-better since he arrived at the club.

0:49:140:49:18

-He was quite a player

-for Wales in France.

0:49:180:49:20

-Eric Jones has been my studio guest.

0:49:210:49:23

-He's an adventurer who's about

-to celebrate his 80th birthday.

0:49:230:49:27

-To look at you,

-you would never think you're 80.

0:49:280:49:31

-What is the next challenge for you?

0:49:330:49:35

-Only small ones these days.

0:49:370:49:39

-Like Trebor Edwards sang,

-I take one day at a time.

0:49:400:49:43

-I'm hoping to do some skiing

-and some easy climbing.

0:49:450:49:48

-If I'm here in a year...

0:49:490:49:50

-..I'll be singing

-Dafydd Iwan's song, Yma o Hyd.

0:49:510:49:54

-What is an easy climb for you?

0:49:540:49:56

-Everything must seem easy

-after what you've achieved.

0:49:560:49:59

-What you do isn't easy for me!

0:49:590:50:01

-We do have a surprise for you

-as it's your birthday.

0:50:020:50:05

-Catrin is bringing in a cake.

0:50:060:50:08

-It's just a little something

-from everyone at Clwb...

0:50:100:50:13

-..for you to enjoy at home.

0:50:130:50:15

-You are almost 80

-but still healthy and active.

0:50:170:50:19

-It's important to keep going.

0:50:210:50:23

-Yes, that is important.

0:50:240:50:25

-My wife bought a plaque

-which said...

0:50:280:50:30

-.."Life is like riding a bicycle.

-If you slow down you fall off".

0:50:310:50:36

-That is so true.

0:50:370:50:38

-Your family are used to you now but

-have they worried over the years?

0:50:390:50:43

-I don't know, I think the wife

-was happy to get rid of me.

0:50:450:50:48

-Have the girls

-followed in your footsteps?

0:50:520:50:54

-My eldest daughter, Rebecca, has

-done some climbing, but that's it.

0:50:550:51:00

-They have more sense than me.

0:51:000:51:02

-You have seen some wonders

-across the world.

0:51:040:51:06

-You have seen so much

-of what you can see in an atlas.

0:51:070:51:10

-There is also a lot I haven't done.

0:51:120:51:14

-I'd like to have my time

-all over again.

0:51:140:51:17

-Is there one thing that you're

-glad you've done, a highlight?

0:51:170:51:21

-My solo ascent of the Eiger.

0:51:230:51:25

-I had been thinking about that

-for years.

0:51:260:51:28

-I had to wait for days

-for the right conditions.

0:51:300:51:33

-In the end, it all went well.

0:51:330:51:35

-It was a project

-which ended successfully.

0:51:370:51:39

-An incredible solo ascent.

0:51:410:51:43

-It's been great to have your company

-in the studio.

0:51:440:51:47

-Thank you very much

-and I hope you enjoy your birthday.

0:51:470:51:51

-at the Oval too.
