-Hello and welcome

-to Enwog o Fri, Ardal Ni.

0:00:420:00:46

-Welcome to our school - Ysgol

-Gynradd Pennant in Penybont Fawr.

0:00:460:00:52

-Where in Wales is Penybont Fawr?

0:00:530:00:56

-Well, in the Tanat Valley,

-not far from Llanfyllin, Mid Wales.

0:00:560:01:04

-We live in a wonderfully green area.

0:01:050:01:07

-It's also a quiet place.

0:01:070:01:10

-Listen carefully - you'll only hear

-the sound of nature.

0:01:100:01:15

-You're never quiet long enough

-to hear the sound of nature.

0:01:150:01:19

-Hey, neither are you!

0:01:190:01:22

-But we know of one person...

0:01:220:01:24

-..who enjoyed listening

-to the sound of nature.

0:01:250:01:28

-Yes - her name was Melangell.

0:01:280:01:31

-Saint Melangell.

0:01:310:01:33

-Renowned and revered,

-she came from this area.

0:01:340:01:37

-Our story begins many years ago,

-across the sea in Ireland.

0:01:390:01:44

-I'll see you later, little bird.

0:01:450:01:48

-Hello, I'm Princess Melangell.

0:01:530:01:57

-I'm the king's daughter.

0:01:570:01:59

-Melangell? Melangell?

0:01:590:02:02

-Here he is.

0:02:020:02:04

-What's wrong, Father?

0:02:040:02:06

-I have some great news

-to share with you.

0:02:070:02:11

-I've found you a husband.

0:02:120:02:15

-A rich prince who's very smart.

0:02:150:02:18

-You'll find no-one better.

0:02:190:02:21

-No, never. Never ever.

0:02:210:02:24

-What? Don't you want to get married?

0:02:250:02:29

-What's wrong with her?

0:02:290:02:31

-I want to dedicate my life to God.

0:02:340:02:36

-That's my decision.

0:02:360:02:39

-Yoo-hoo!

0:02:400:02:42

-Tell Mami what's wrong, Melangell.

0:02:420:02:45

-Melangell weds tomorrow.

-First thing.

0:02:470:02:51

-Organise the feast. Now!

0:02:510:02:55

-A wedding.

0:02:580:02:59

-I like weddings.

0:02:590:03:01

-I don't want to get married.

0:03:020:03:05

-Yes, you do.

0:03:050:03:07

-You're about to get married

-to a smart prince.

0:03:070:03:10

-He's rich.

0:03:110:03:13

-You're so lucky.

0:03:130:03:16

-But dear me, I have so much

-to organise before tomorrow morning.

0:03:160:03:22

-Come on, Melangell,

-you're getting married tomorrow.

0:03:220:03:26

-Smile!

0:03:270:03:28

-This broke Melangell's heart.

0:03:310:03:34

-She wanted to spend the rest

-of her life worshipping God...

0:03:340:03:38

-..and caring for nature's creatures.

0:03:380:03:42

-When no-one was looking...

0:03:420:03:44

-..she slipped away from the court

-and ran away to another country...

0:03:440:03:49

-..somewhere she could worship God

-in peace.

0:03:490:03:54

-# Our Father... #

0:03:550:03:57

-After walking through the dark night

-and crossing the sea on a boat...

0:03:570:04:02

-..Melangell reached

-the Welsh coastline.

0:04:030:04:06

-She walked slowly but determinedly

-onwards and onwards.

0:04:070:04:12

-Past rivers.

0:04:150:04:16

-Through forests.

0:04:180:04:20

-Across the fields.

0:04:200:04:22

-Onwards and onwards

-for many miles and days.

0:04:220:04:27

-After walking day after day,

-she reached her journey's end.

0:04:310:04:34

-That place was Cwm Pennant.

0:04:370:04:39

-A beautiful place, green and

-peaceful in the Powys hills.

0:04:390:04:44

-This is where I'll make my home.

0:04:510:04:54

-It's perfect.

0:04:540:04:56

-Thank you, Lord,

-for leading me here.

0:04:560:04:59

-# Amen #

0:04:590:05:02

-Having rested and prayed...

0:05:050:05:07

-..Melangell thought

-that this place was rather strange.

0:05:080:05:12

-It was quiet, unusually quiet.

0:05:120:05:16

-How strange. It's so quiet here.

0:05:160:05:20

-Where are you, wonderful creatures?

0:05:220:05:25

-Slowly, quietly and nervously,

-from behind a tree...

0:05:260:05:31

-..a little hare

-came out of its hiding hole.

0:05:310:05:34

-Hello, hare. Don't be scared.

0:05:350:05:39

-Come to me.

0:05:390:05:41

-I'm Melangell.

0:05:410:05:44

-Who are you?

0:05:440:05:46

-Hello, Melangell.

-I'm Siwan the hare.

0:05:470:05:51

-Welcome to Cwm Pennant.

0:05:510:05:54

-Siwan liked Melangell.

0:05:540:05:58

-She'd never met a lady

-like this before.

0:05:580:06:02

-Someone who could speak

-to little creatures.

0:06:020:06:06

-Siwan, where are the other

-forest creatures? It's so quiet.

0:06:060:06:12

-That's Prince Brochwel's fault.

0:06:120:06:15

-All the forest's creatures

-are scared of him.

0:06:160:06:20

-Prince Brochwel?

0:06:200:06:23

-Siwan explained that Prince

-Brochwel, the Prince of Powys...

0:06:230:06:28

-..enjoyed hunting in Cwm Pennant.

0:06:280:06:31

-She said that many of the creatures

-had been killed...

0:06:310:06:36

-..and that the rest of the creatures

-hid in fear.

0:06:360:06:40

-Don't worry, Siwan,

-I'm here to look after you...

0:06:410:06:45

-..and all the other creatures.

0:06:460:06:47

-But where are they?

0:06:480:06:51

-Come out - it's safe.

0:06:510:06:53

-Come out - it's safe.

0:06:560:06:58

-Come and meet Melangell.

0:06:580:07:01

-# Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo!

-Hello, hello

0:07:080:07:12

-# We are the creatures of the valley

0:07:120:07:15

-# Raise a paw, wave a wing

0:07:150:07:19

-# A warm welcome to you

0:07:190:07:21

-# It's safe to come out,

-out of your hiding place

0:07:230:07:26

-# To play with you

0:07:270:07:29

-# We're scared of our enemy,

-his name is Brochwel

0:07:290:07:33

-# He goes hunting with his dog

0:07:330:07:37

-# Don't worry, I'm here to help you

0:07:370:07:40

-# I'll save you from Brochwel

-and his dog

0:07:410:07:43

-# Don't worry, I am your friend

0:07:430:07:47

-# I'm here to care for you

0:07:470:07:50

-Are you?

0:07:500:07:51

-Are you?

-

-Yes.

0:07:510:07:52

-# Peek-a-boo! Peek-a-boo!

-Hello, hello

0:07:530:07:56

-# We are the creatures of the valley

0:07:560:08:00

-# Raise a paw, wave a wing

0:08:000:08:04

-# A warm welcome to you, oh, yeah

0:08:040:08:07

-# A warm welcome to you, oh, yeah

0:08:070:08:11

-# A warm welcome to you #

0:08:110:08:17

-Welcome! Welcome!

0:08:170:08:19

-Melangell was so happy.

0:08:240:08:26

-The creatures of Cwm Pennant

-were glad to see Melangell.

0:08:260:08:30

-They felt safe with her.

0:08:300:08:34

-That's how life continued

-for many months.

0:08:340:08:37

-One day, feeling adventurous...

0:08:380:08:42

-..Siwan the hare went for a walk,

-venturing further than usual.

0:08:430:08:48

-Oh, where am I?

0:08:480:08:51

-I feel like an adventure.

0:08:510:08:53

-Suddenly, she heard a sound

-that frightened her.

0:08:560:09:00

-The sound of a hunting horn

-and horse hooves.

0:09:000:09:04

-It was Prince Brochwel,

-the Prince of Powys.

0:09:040:09:08

-He was joined by his two servants

-and his dogs.

0:09:090:09:12

-Siwan froze in fear.

0:09:150:09:16

-Oh, goodness me.

0:09:160:09:18

-Stop!

0:09:190:09:21

-A-ha!

0:09:210:09:22

-After a full day

-of hunting and searching...

0:09:220:09:25

-..I, Prince Brochwel,

-have seen something - a hare.

0:09:260:09:32

-Over there by the trees! After it.

0:09:320:09:36

-Hello, little hare.

0:09:360:09:40

-You're so cute.

0:09:400:09:42

-You have cute ears.

0:09:420:09:45

-Eh?

0:09:450:09:46

-Eh?

-

-What on earth? Bad servants!

0:09:460:09:49

-After it.

0:09:500:09:51

-Catch it.

0:09:510:09:53

-Oh, goodness me.

0:09:550:09:57

-Siwan the hare ran off.

0:09:570:10:01

-The dogs chased her and chased her.

0:10:010:10:05

-Catch the hare.

0:10:050:10:07

-Catch the hare.

0:10:070:10:09

-Come here, little hare.

0:10:120:10:15

-I must reach Melangell.

-She will help me.

0:10:190:10:24

-Siwan rushed into the forest.

0:10:240:10:27

-What on earth...?

0:10:270:10:30

-There, kneeling in prayer,

-was Melangell.

0:10:300:10:34

-The hare raced towards her.

0:10:340:10:37

-What's wrong? Siwan, are you OK?

0:10:370:10:40

-Brochwel.

0:10:400:10:41

-He's out hunting. Help me.

0:10:420:10:45

-A-ha. Thought you were safe,

-did you, hare?

0:10:450:10:50

-Hiding under this cloak.

0:10:500:10:52

-Dogs, after the hare.

0:10:530:10:56

-Come here, little dogs,

-everything's OK. Hush.

0:10:560:11:01

-The dogs lay down next to Melangell.

0:11:030:11:08

-What? Stand!

0:11:090:11:11

-Well, do something.

0:11:110:11:14

-Hello!

0:11:160:11:18

-Hello, Mami!

0:11:180:11:21

-Hello and welcome to our valley.

0:11:220:11:26

-What? Your valley?

0:11:260:11:28

-I, Brochwel, Prince of Powys,

-own this valley and all the land.

0:11:290:11:36

-What are you doing here?

0:11:360:11:39

-I'm Melangell. I'm here to worship

-God and care for all the creatures.

0:11:400:11:48

-Melangell told Brochwel her story.

0:11:490:11:51

-Everyone listened.

0:11:530:11:56

-Even Brochwel was surprised.

-He started to smile.

0:11:560:12:01

-Melangell, since you're such

-a special and brave person...

0:12:020:12:07

-..I grant you Cwm Pennant as a gift.

0:12:070:12:11

-From now on, every creature can

-live here safely and without fear.

0:12:120:12:20

-Thank you.

0:12:200:12:22

-Brochwel thanked her

-before leaving Cwm Pennant forever.

0:12:230:12:28

-From that day, Melangell

-and her creatures lived happily...

0:12:300:12:34

-..in the peace and tranquillity

-of the valley.

0:12:350:12:37

-Here, in Cwm Pennant,

-you can find St Melangell's church.

0:12:380:12:42

-An abbey was built here

-many years ago.

0:12:420:12:46

-It's a very pretty church.

0:12:460:12:48

-# Thank you Lord in the highest
