-Hello and welcome

-to Enwog o Fri, Ardal Ni.

0:00:420:00:46

-We're pupils in Ysgol Pentre Uchaf.

0:00:460:00:48

-Where in Wales is Pentre Uchaf,

-I hear you ask.

0:00:490:00:53

-On the Lleyn Peninsula,

-not far from Pwllheli.

0:00:530:00:56

-This is the village of Nant

-Gwrtheyrn, o'r Nant as we know it.

0:01:040:01:09

-An old slate village, it's nestled

-between the sea and the mountain.

0:01:090:01:14

-The slate works has closed down...

0:01:150:01:18

-..but Nant is renowned

-as a language centre.

0:01:180:01:21

-People come from near and far

-to learn Welsh here.

0:01:210:01:25

-We're taking you back in time,

-to a time over 200 years ago...

0:01:270:01:33

-..when Nant Gwrtheyrn

-was a different place.

0:01:340:01:37

-Here, on Ty Uchaf Farm,

-lived a boy called Rhys Meredydd.

0:01:400:01:46

-Here he is now.

0:01:460:01:48

-Hello, my friends, I am Rhys.

0:01:510:01:53

-I'm in a hurry. I'm on my way

-to see a friend. Cheerio.

0:01:540:01:57

-Rhys was on his way

-to see his best friend, Meinir.

0:01:590:02:03

-Meinir lived with her father

-in a cottage called Ty Hen.

0:02:030:02:08

-I won't be long, Dad.

-You'll be OK without me, won't you?

0:02:080:02:12

-Yes. Off to see Rhys Ty Uchaf,

-are you?

0:02:120:02:14

-Yes, is that OK?

0:02:150:02:17

-Yes. You're such good friends.

-I'll see you later.

0:02:170:02:22

-Cheerio.

0:02:230:02:25

-Cheerio.

0:02:250:02:26

-Rhys and Meinir were the same age.

0:02:290:02:32

-Both had been friends for years.

0:02:330:02:35

-They enjoyed each other's company.

0:02:350:02:39

-They spent hours together,

-playing and roaming the mountains.

0:02:400:02:45

-But Rhys and Meinir had one

-special place in Nant Gwrtheyrn.

0:02:450:02:50

-That place was under the large oak.

0:02:500:02:53

-Rhys, you're so silly!

0:02:540:02:55

-Rhys, you're so silly!

-

-So are you.

0:02:550:02:57

-They spent hours

-under its branches...

0:02:580:03:02

-..talking

-and putting the world to rights.

0:03:020:03:06

-As the years passed,

-they became lovers.

0:03:080:03:12

-# You're the one for me

0:03:200:03:23

-# The best friend that I have

0:03:230:03:27

-# Here under the oak

0:03:270:03:30

-# I feel our magic

0:03:300:03:33

-# Two lovers, Rhys and Meinir

0:03:330:03:37

-# Will you marry me?

0:03:370:03:39

0:04:030:04:08

-According to the custom

-at the time...

0:04:080:04:11

-..someone would announce

-the good news to local people.

-

-Rhys and Meinir.

0:06:050:06:07

-Thank you, friends.

0:06:070:06:09

-After the celebration and party,

-the day of the wedding dawned.

0:06:090:06:14

-Well, Meinir, you are

-a beautiful bride, yes indeed.

0:06:160:06:20

-Rhys is a lucky man.

0:06:200:06:21

-I'm a lucky lady.

0:06:220:06:24

-I'm off to the church.

0:06:250:06:27

-Go and hide and I'll see you later.

-I hope the boys find you soon.

0:06:270:06:32

-Good luck.

0:06:340:06:36

-It was traditional

-for the bride to hide.

0:06:360:06:39

-The groom's friends,

-the ushers, would search for her...

0:06:390:06:44

-..and escort her to the church.

0:06:450:06:47

-Meinir knew where to hide.

0:06:470:06:49

-Somewhere that was close

-to her heart...

0:06:500:06:53

-..and a special place

-for herself and Rhys.

0:06:530:06:56

-While Meinir was hiding...

0:06:560:06:58

-..Rhys waited eagerly by the church.

0:06:590:07:03

-The boys won't be long finding her.

-She'll be here soon.

0:07:030:07:07

-I hope so, I really hope so.

0:07:080:07:11

-The ushers searched Nant Gwrtheyrn

-for Meinir. Where was she hiding?

0:07:130:07:19

-# We'll have fun

-on the day of the wedding

0:07:210:07:24

-# Come on, let's search for her

0:07:250:07:27

-# We'll escort Meinir to the church

0:07:270:07:31

-# Come on, let's search for her

0:07:310:07:34

-# We can hear the sound of laughter

-across the valley

0:07:340:07:37

-# This is such fun

0:07:380:07:40

-# Running around,

-searching the ground

0:07:410:07:43

-# Come on, let's find her

0:07:440:07:47

-# Come on, let's find her #

0:07:470:07:49

-Where are you, Meinir?

-Rhys is worried about you.

0:07:500:07:53

-Everyone's waiting for you

-in the church.

0:07:530:07:56

-# We'll have fun

-on the day of the wedding

0:07:570:07:59

-# Come on, let's search for her

0:08:000:08:02

-# We'll escort Meinir to the church

0:08:030:08:05

-# Come on, let's search for her

0:08:050:08:08

-# We've searched everywhere

0:08:090:08:12

-# All around

0:08:130:08:14

-# We think she's disappeared

0:08:150:08:19

-# Where did she go?

0:08:190:08:21

-# Where did she go? #

0:08:220:08:24

-Where are you, Meinir?

0:08:240:08:26

-# Where? Where? Where? #

0:08:260:08:31

-Time was passing by

-and there was no sign of Meinir.

0:08:370:08:41

-The boys had looked

-for her everywhere.

0:08:410:08:44

-Where is she?

0:08:460:08:48

-This is rather unusual, I must say.

0:08:480:08:52

-Meinir?

0:08:520:08:54

-We've searched everywhere.

-Is Meinir here?

0:08:540:08:57

-No, something is wrong.

-Meinir? Meinir?

0:08:570:09:01

-Rhys! What on earth...?

0:09:010:09:04

-In a mad rush,

-Rhys went to search for her too.

0:09:100:09:14

-He searched for her all night.

0:09:150:09:18

-Meinir?

0:09:190:09:21

-He searched the following day.

0:09:210:09:23

-Meinir? Meinir? Where are you?

0:09:230:09:26

-And the following night.

0:09:280:09:30

-Meinir?

0:09:310:09:32

-Meinir?

-

-Days turned into weeks.

0:09:320:09:34

-Weeks turned into months.

0:09:340:09:37

-Rhys was determined

-to find his lover.

0:09:370:09:41

-He would spend hours

-under the large oak...

0:09:420:09:45

-..their special place,

-searching for Meinir.

0:09:450:09:49

-One day, a fierce storm

-raged through Nant Gwrtheyrn.

0:09:500:09:57

-As the rain fell,

-Rhys continued his search.

0:09:570:10:02

-The rain cried and sympathised

-with Rhys's sadness.

0:10:030:10:08

-Meinir?

0:10:090:10:10

-# Rain falls, thunder and lightning

0:10:110:10:14

-# Rhys searched

-for a place to shelter

0:10:140:10:16

-# Waves crashed, thunder roared

0:10:170:10:19

-# Rhys continued his search

0:10:200:10:22

-# Out he went

-in the middle of the storm

0:10:220:10:25

-# The rain fell

-and the thunder rumbled all around

0:10:250:10:31

-# As lightning struck the oak #

0:10:330:10:38

-Yes, Rhys now knew.

0:10:460:10:50

-Meinir had died.

0:10:500:10:52

-The story of Rhys and Meinir

-has a sad ending.

0:10:550:10:58

-That stormy night, the great oak

-was struck by lightning.

0:10:580:11:02

-Inside, Rhys found Meinir,

-dressed in her wedding dress.

0:11:030:11:07

-Meinir had hidden in the oak tree.

0:11:070:11:10

-Rhys died of shock

-next to his lover...

0:11:100:11:13

-..but he was happy knowing

-that he was once again with Meinir.

0:11:130:11:17
