0:01:070:01:10

0:01:130:01:17

-Ready?

0:01:170:01:19

-to have the best education.

0:02:320:02:36

-couldn't speak Welsh...

0:04:140:04:18

-..she would hear the servants and

-maids speaking Welsh in Llanover.

0:04:180:04:23

-language and Welsh songs, don't you?

0:05:350:05:40

0:05:410:05:42

-Truly, Augusta adored

-the Welsh language so much...

0:05:430:05:47

-..she gave some of the estate's

-animals Welsh names.

0:05:470:05:51

-Come here, come here.

0:05:530:05:55

-Come to Augusta.

0:05:560:05:57

-Your name is Cariad.

0:05:580:05:59

0:06:120:06:16

0:06:230:06:25

-Doniol. And I will call you Bos.

0:06:260:06:31

-In 1823, when Augusta was 21 years

-old, she married Benjamin Hall.

0:06:430:06:49

-Who wants to catch the flowers?

0:06:530:06:56

-It was a happy day.

0:06:560:06:58

-The servants and maids

-were part of the celebration.

0:07:000:07:03

-

-Hooray.

0:07:040:07:06

-They were glad to be there.

0:07:070:07:09

-at the Cardiff National Eisteddfod.

0:07:520:07:56

-Her nom-de-plume was Gwenynen Gwent,

-a name she adopted thereafter.

0:07:560:08:01

-The name Gwenynen Gwent suited her.

0:08:030:08:06

-She was like a busy bee

-promoting the Welsh language.

0:08:060:08:11

-She insisted all her servants
