-It's a special year

-for Merched y Wawr...

0:00:020:00:05

-..as they celebrate

-their 50th birthday.

0:00:050:00:08

-50 years of tea, bara brith

-and meeting for a good chinwag.

0:00:080:00:14

-Help yourselves.

0:00:140:00:16

-There must be more to the story

-than that.

0:00:170:00:20

-They've been with us for 50 years.

0:00:200:00:22

-They've been with us for 50 years.

-

-We're still here!

0:00:220:00:24

-We're beginning a journey

-to find out more.

0:00:240:00:27

-I'm Jess Davies,

-a 24-year-old model and fashionista.

0:00:270:00:31

-Merched y Wawr

-has never been part of my world.

0:00:310:00:34

-There's some alcohol in that.

0:00:340:00:37

-I'm actress Hannah Daniel. I've not

-been linked to the movement either.

0:00:370:00:42

-You'll have your ball back now.

0:00:420:00:44

-Over a period of a few months,

-we'll join Merched y Wawr...

0:00:450:00:49

-..as they celebrate their

-50th birthday across the country.

0:00:490:00:53

-This is a real bra.

0:00:540:00:55

-This is a real bra.

-

-A real bra. Size 26.

0:00:550:00:57

-We'll look back at some

-memorable moments from the past.

0:00:580:01:02

-It was a battle.

0:01:020:01:04

-We'll ask if the institution

-is relevant to modern life.

0:01:040:01:08

-I caused long queues in M&S

-for writing a cheque in Welsh.

0:01:090:01:13

-Or is it all tea and bara brith?

0:01:130:01:16

-You're not meant to use these.

0:01:160:01:17

-You're not meant to use these.

-

-It's tense.

0:01:170:01:19

-Who are Merched y Wawr? Do they

-offer anything to today's Wales?

0:01:200:01:25

-Merched y Wawr.

0:01:320:01:33

-Merched y Wawr.

-

-Merched y Wawr.

0:01:330:01:35

-I don't know anyone of my age

-who's a member of Merched y Wawr.

0:01:350:01:38

-Tea, coffee, bara brith.

0:01:390:01:43

-Where does Merched y Wawr

-fit into today's world?

0:01:430:01:47

-What do they do?

0:01:470:01:49

-What do they do?

-

-Why are they relevant?

0:01:490:01:50

-Why did girls our age

-join them 50 years ago...

0:01:510:01:55

-..and why doesn't it happen now?

0:01:560:01:58

-I'm in my 20s, I go out a lot.

-I'm in the fashion world.

0:01:580:02:01

-I don't know

-where I'll fit in with the women.

0:02:010:02:06

-It'll be a bit odd initially.

-The members are a lot older than us.

0:02:060:02:12

-They won't know why we're there.

0:02:120:02:14

-Will they be drinking tea

-or cocktails?

0:02:150:02:18

-Long Island iced tea.

0:02:180:02:21

-There'll be a lot of tea...

0:02:220:02:24

-..bara brith, I hope...

0:02:240:02:26

-I'm not sure if I like bara brith.

0:02:260:02:30

-Good luck, Jess!

0:02:300:02:32

-Every journey

-starts with a single step.

0:02:380:02:41

-A Merched y Wawr branch is ready

-to welcome me to Gorseinon.

0:02:410:02:46

-I can't wait to meet the members

-and learn more.

0:02:460:02:51

-They have their purses out.

-I didn't know we had to pay.

0:02:530:02:57

-Is there a raffle every month?

0:02:580:03:00

-Is there a raffle every month?

-

-Yes, that's how we raise funds.

0:03:000:03:02

-There are 38-40 of us here and the

-money covers the teas and coffees.

0:03:020:03:06

-We also donate

-to different charities.

0:03:070:03:09

-That's brilliant.

0:03:100:03:12

-Can I borrow a pound?!

0:03:120:03:14

-Hi. Hannah.

0:03:150:03:16

-Hi. Hannah.

-

-I'm Betty.

0:03:160:03:17

-And Janet, nice to meet you.

0:03:180:03:19

-Hi, Kay. Are you OK?

0:03:200:03:22

-Good evening, ladies.

0:03:220:03:23

-Welcome to the April meeting.

0:03:240:03:26

-I hope you all had a good Easter

-and enjoyed yourselves.

0:03:270:03:31

-I hope you didn't eat

-too much chocolate, like some of us.

0:03:310:03:36

-We're welcoming

-a new member to the branch tonight.

0:03:370:03:40

-Hannah.

-A warm welcome to you, Hannah.

0:03:400:03:43

-It's a pleasure to have you here.

0:03:430:03:46

-I hope you'll enjoy your time

-with us.

0:03:460:03:51

-We're nice women!

0:03:510:03:53

-We organise different events.

0:03:530:03:56

-Craft competitions -

-one robin redbreast in any medium.

0:03:560:04:03

-Baking a loaf of bara brith

-without using yeast.

0:04:030:04:08

-They're a welcoming group.

0:04:150:04:17

-I'll take a coffee

-if there's one going spare.

0:04:170:04:20

-Cheers.

0:04:200:04:21

-They're a lively bunch.

0:04:210:04:23

-Plenty of characters.

0:04:240:04:26

-Mam and Dad spoke Welsh

-but didn't speak Welsh to me.

0:04:260:04:30

-I'd hear a lot of Welsh

-but I didn't speak it.

0:04:300:04:33

-You all sound fluent.

0:04:330:04:36

-If you attend this branch,

-you have to practise your Welsh.

0:04:360:04:40

-Does it help you to be here?

0:04:400:04:42

-Does it help you to be here?

-

-We speak Welsh here every month.

0:04:420:04:44

-We have regular events

-where we make things...

0:04:440:04:47

-..and they help us

-improve our Welsh.

0:04:470:04:49

-I still make mistakes but I like

-speaking Welsh, I like the language.

0:04:500:04:55

-I love the language.

0:04:550:04:57

-My Welsh isn't fantastic but

-don't worry about making mistakes.

0:04:570:05:02

-If you make a mess of it,

-just carry on.

0:05:020:05:05

-Yes, yes.

0:05:050:05:07

-They have Welsh learners here.

0:05:070:05:09

-They have a word of the week

-for the weekly walking club.

0:05:090:05:14

-They back each other up here

-which is lovely.

0:05:140:05:18

-I'm 104 years old

-in six weeks' time.

0:05:180:05:21

-104 years old in six weeks' time?

-Wow!

0:05:210:05:24

-What brings you back here

-every month?

0:05:250:05:27

-It's the interesting things

-that we do.

0:05:270:05:32

-Everything that happens here

-is very interesting.

0:05:320:05:37

-It must help you to stay young too.

0:05:370:05:41

-Probably.

0:05:410:05:42

-We did yoga last year

-and we had to raise our legs.

0:05:430:05:46

-Who was the first one to do it?

-She was!

0:05:470:05:49

-We have fun. We do silly things.

0:05:490:05:53

-I heard a lot of laughter here

-tonight.

0:05:530:05:55

-As people get older,

-they get lonely.

0:05:570:05:59

-This is a way

-of maintaining friendships.

0:05:590:06:01

-They meet new people...

0:06:020:06:03

-..they keep fit,

-they keep their brains ticking over.

0:06:040:06:08

-I'm a Ceredigion girl.

0:06:110:06:13

-I'm going closer to home,

-to Aberaeron...

0:06:140:06:17

-..to meet members

-of the Cylch Aeron branch.

0:06:170:06:20

-Is the branch ready

-to welcome someone in their 20s?

0:06:210:06:24

-What age range

-do you have in Merched y Wawr?

0:06:240:06:28

-Do you welcome young women? Or don't

-young women think they can join?

0:06:290:06:33

-Any one. We encourage women

-of all ages to join the branch.

0:06:330:06:40

-There's a big emphasis

-on socialising and enjoyment.

0:06:400:06:44

-This year, to celebrate our 50th...

0:06:450:06:48

-..we'll visit St David's College

-in Lampeter and we're having tea.

0:06:480:06:52

-We have a lot of fun participating

-in different competitions.

0:06:530:06:58

-We compete against

-other Welsh regions.

0:06:590:07:02

-We're very angry if we don't win.

0:07:030:07:06

-I'll tell you that now!

0:07:060:07:08

-What kind of competitions

-are available to your members?

0:07:090:07:12

-We play Scrabble, that's fun,

-and tippit.

0:07:130:07:16

-There are golf

-and bowling competitions.

0:07:170:07:21

-Cooking competitions

-are very popular...

0:07:210:07:24

-..especially with members

-in our branch.

0:07:240:07:26

-Delyth Jenkins

-is a member of our branch.

0:07:270:07:29

-She's a world champion...

0:07:300:07:32

-..bara brith maker.

0:07:330:07:34

-I've just heard about Delyth, the

-bara brith making world champion.

0:07:350:07:40

-I didn't know there was

-a bara brith world championship.

0:07:400:07:44

-I want to know more about it.

0:07:440:07:46

-I visited Gorseinon.

0:07:500:07:52

-I was warmly welcomed

-by the members.

0:07:520:07:56

-I detected a spirit in them,

-a fighting spirit.

0:07:560:08:01

-I want to know if that's something

-at the core of the movement.

0:08:020:08:06

-So, I've driven to North Wales...

0:08:060:08:10

-..to meet Sylwen, Lona and Zonia...

0:08:100:08:13

-..who started Merched y Wawr...

0:08:130:08:15

-..to try and find out more

-about what inspired them initially.

0:08:160:08:22

-The story started in

-the village of Parc, near Bala...

0:08:250:08:28

-..51 years ago..

0:08:280:08:30

-..in 1966.

0:08:300:08:31

-A farmer's wife came to me and said

-she was thinking of starting...

0:08:330:08:39

-..a WI branch in Parc.

0:08:390:08:41

-She said it would be

-a Welsh language branch...

0:08:410:08:45

-..so I joined.

0:08:460:08:47

-The WI told us that it was

-an English language movement...

0:08:480:08:53

-..and it would be too expensive

-to include Welsh in the magazine.

0:08:530:08:57

-Mrs Edwards from Parc suggested

-we start a Welsh language movement.

0:08:570:09:03

-That's when the seed was planted.

0:09:030:09:05

-Zonia came up

-with the name Merched y Wawr.

0:09:050:09:09

-Merched y Wawr?

-We all loved the name.

0:09:090:09:14

-We all thought it was a good name

-and it was a good name.

0:09:140:09:18

-It sounds like an exciting time.

0:09:190:09:21

-It was exciting.

0:09:210:09:22

-Merched y Wawr grew rapidly

-across the country.

0:09:230:09:27

-Merched y Wawr,

-the new women's movement...

0:09:280:09:30

-..whose activities take place

-entirely in Welsh.

0:09:300:09:34

-There've been lots of enquiries

-from potential new members.

0:09:340:09:38

-When the story broke...

0:09:390:09:40

-..within a week another branch

-had started in Ganllwyd, Dolgellau.

0:09:410:09:48

-Before the end of the first decade,

-there were 250 branches.

0:09:480:09:52

-Members from Parc.

0:09:530:09:55

-Thank you. Ganllwyd.

0:09:550:09:57

-Llanuwchllyn.

0:09:590:10:00

-A lot of it was down

-to the spirit of the '60s.

0:10:000:10:03

-Saunders Lewis gave his

-Tynged Yr Iaith radio speech.

0:10:040:10:08

-Cymdeithas Yr Iaith was established.

0:10:080:10:10

-I don't think the support for

-the Welsh language continues today.

0:10:110:10:15

-It was an era of protest,

-fighting for the language...

0:10:150:10:19

-..and the right to speak Welsh and

-they were filled with an energy...

0:10:200:10:24

-..which doesn't exist anymore.

0:10:240:10:26

-Zonia said it doesn't exist

-in our generation today.

0:10:270:10:30

-It sounds as if

-the women of Wales were ready.

0:10:310:10:34

-That was important.

0:10:340:10:35

-It was an opportunity

-for Welsh women to play their part.

0:10:360:10:40

-Had it not started in Parc, it

-would have started somewhere else.

0:10:400:10:45

-Did you think the movement

-would last 50 years?

0:10:450:10:49

-I hoped it would.

0:10:490:10:52

-I think the Welsh language

-is more important than the movement.

0:10:520:10:56

-Our language was given to us by God.

0:10:570:10:59

-It's our duty to keep it alive.

0:10:590:11:02

-Our generation

-needs more of that passion.

0:11:020:11:06

-Yes indeed.

0:11:060:11:07

-The movement was formed to

-safeguard the language and culture.

0:11:070:11:13

-We weren't boring,

-we had a lot of fun.

0:11:130:11:16

-We haven't made that much jam

-in 50 years!

0:11:160:11:20

-I think Merched y Wawr has helped

-the Welsh language greatly.

0:11:200:11:26

-Its status is far higher.

0:11:260:11:28

-Thanks to that fighting spirit.

0:11:280:11:31

-Yes, thanks to that fighting spirit.

0:11:310:11:34

-Visiting Parc

-has left its mark on me.

0:11:410:11:44

-I feel slightly ashamed...

0:11:450:11:48

-..as someone

-from an apathetic generation...

0:11:480:11:51

-..that takes these things

-for granted.

0:11:520:11:55

-We forget that people

-battled so hard in the past.

0:11:550:12:00

-We're not doing much to safeguard

-the language for the future.

0:12:000:12:04

-So, yeah.

0:12:040:12:07

-You hope the battle will continue...

0:12:070:12:09

-..and that spirit of the '60s

-can be discovered again.

0:12:090:12:13

-Hopefully.

0:12:130:12:14

-Merched y Wawr is celebrating

-its 50th birthday this year.

0:12:240:12:28

-Myself, Jess Davies...

0:12:290:12:30

-..and Hannah Daniel

-are on a mission....

0:12:300:12:32

-..to discover the true meaning

-of the movement.

0:12:330:12:36

-While talking to members

-from Cylch Aeron...

0:12:360:12:39

-..I heard about one member who's

-an expert at making bara brith.

0:12:390:12:44

-Delyth, world champion bara brith.

0:12:450:12:48

-Well, I couldn't believe it.

0:12:490:12:51

-After they'd said my name

-the third time, it sunk in.

0:12:510:12:54

-This is the winning recipe.

0:12:540:12:57

-I'm not giving you the recipe!

-I hope to sell it in shops.

0:12:570:13:02

-Can you teach me

-how to make bara brith?

0:13:020:13:06

-I'm not a great baker.

0:13:060:13:09

-The fruit's soaking in tea

-and a spoonful of marmalade.

0:13:090:13:13

-How long do you soak the fruit?

0:13:130:13:15

-How long do you soak the fruit?

-

-Overnight. There we go.

0:13:150:13:17

-Bara brith is easy.

0:13:180:13:20

-One of the easiest cakes to make.

0:13:200:13:22

-Add the flour. Self-raising flour.

0:13:230:13:26

-Mix it all together.

0:13:270:13:29

-A lot of people use these papers.

0:13:320:13:34

-If you're competing,

-you can't use them.

0:13:350:13:39

-Not at all.

0:13:390:13:40

-Leave what's left or you'll

-see it on top of the cake.

0:13:430:13:46

-Delyth's tips.

0:13:460:13:49

-Into the oven at 170 degrees

-for 90 minutes.

0:13:490:13:52

-We can forget about that now.

0:13:530:13:55

-I want to taste

-the world's best bara brith.

0:13:550:13:59

-Good. Delicious.

0:14:040:14:06

-Thank you.

0:14:060:14:08

-Good, nice.

0:14:100:14:11

-I'm on my way to Machynlleth...

0:14:150:14:16

-..to Merched y Wawr's

-summer festival...

0:14:170:14:19

-..one of the highlights

-of the annual calendar.

0:14:200:14:24

-There'll be plenty of tea

-and bara brith there.

0:14:240:14:28

-I've heard that there are some

-unexpected events taking place too.

0:14:280:14:33

-We're on our way to see Elizabeth

-to learn more.

0:14:330:14:37

-I'm looking forward to this.

0:14:370:14:40

-Elizabeth,

-you're the county's organiser.

0:14:420:14:45

-Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

0:14:450:14:47

-You also organise the sports.

0:14:470:14:51

-For many years. It's convenient

-since I live close to Machynlleth.

0:14:510:14:55

-What will I be doing with you today?

0:14:560:14:59

-A round of golf. You can join

-the ladies on the golf course.

0:14:590:15:04

-We'll soon see

-if I'm a golfer or not.

0:15:040:15:07

-Good luck.

0:15:070:15:08

-Good luck.

-

-Thank you, I'll need it.

0:15:080:15:10

-I feel nervous.

0:15:110:15:12

-I've never played golf before apart

-from Crazy Golf in St David's 2.

0:15:120:15:18

-I have a handicap of 36

-which sounds quite impressive.

0:15:180:15:23

-Am I on your team?

-Dorothy, Ruth, Hannah.

0:15:240:15:27

-Doreen.

0:15:270:15:28

-Not Dorothy. Ruth.

0:15:290:15:31

-I have no idea what I'm doing

-so bear with.

0:15:310:15:35

-Do I have a ball?

0:15:360:15:37

-Thank you.

0:15:370:15:39

-Completely prepared.

0:15:390:15:41

-This'll be so embarrassing.

0:15:460:15:48

-OK.

0:15:510:15:52

-Practise.

0:15:540:15:56

-I can't hit it

0:15:570:15:59

-Thank you.

0:16:010:16:02

-I won't play for long. Promise.

0:16:030:16:05

-Thanks for the clap.

0:16:050:16:07

-I won't be able to keep up with you.

0:16:070:16:09

-Eye on the ball.

0:16:090:16:11

-Oh, Ruth,

-you can have you ball back now.

0:16:120:16:15

-Oh, yes, good shot.

0:16:160:16:19

-They're energetic.

-They're determined.

0:16:200:16:22

-That must be why

-they're still going 50 years later.

0:16:230:16:28

-Hey.

0:16:290:16:31

-It's not something I'd associate

-with Merched y Wawr.

0:16:330:16:36

-We have a tea and bara brith

-stereotype of Merched y Wawr.

0:16:360:16:39

-It shatters that image

-which is great.

0:16:390:16:42

-Hole-in-one!

0:16:440:16:45

-Hole-in-one!

-

-Well done.

0:16:450:16:47

-Well done, me. I've carried this

-around half the course.

0:16:470:16:50

-Well, I'm not a natural golfer.

0:16:510:16:53

-It's nice to know that there are

-other activities in Machynlleth.

0:16:530:16:58

-Even though it's an annual event,

-this year is rather special.

0:17:000:17:05

-Everyone's really excited about it.

0:17:060:17:10

-They've been busy preparing.

0:17:100:17:12

-Delyth's appointed me

-as a bara brith judge with her.

0:17:120:17:16

-I'm an expert.

-I know what to look out for.

0:17:160:17:19

-I'll hide from the golfers

-after yesterday's embarrassment.

0:17:200:17:25

-It might be an eye-opening

-new experience.

0:17:250:17:28

-Hopefully.

0:17:280:17:29

-As part of the celebration...

0:17:330:17:35

-..every county has made an unique

-panel to reflect their area.

0:17:350:17:38

-It will be taken

-around the country...

0:17:390:17:41

-..before ending up

-in the Senedd building.

0:17:410:17:45

-It's nice.

0:17:470:17:48

-Every area has its own

-interpretation of Merched y Wawr.

0:17:490:17:54

-No-one knew

-what the others were making.

0:17:540:17:57

-There was no discussion

-between the counties.

0:17:570:18:01

-There's so much detail.

0:18:010:18:04

-There are people behind the mesh.

0:18:050:18:07

-I can't find myself!

0:18:070:18:09

-I can see myself right there.

0:18:090:18:13

-I thought that was you.

-I could see the resemblance.

0:18:130:18:16

-I was drawn to this masterpiece.

-There's something cheeky about it.

0:18:170:18:22

-It's a real bra.

0:18:230:18:24

-Size 26.

0:18:250:18:27

-Are you sure?

0:18:270:18:28

-Delyth is busy tasting the

-bara brith at the back of the hall.

0:18:300:18:34

-36 members have competed for

-the honour of winning best in show.

0:18:340:18:39

-There's a lot to taste today.

0:18:420:18:44

-It looks nice.

0:18:450:18:47

-This one's a little dry.

0:18:490:18:51

-Don't you think

-they all taste the same?

0:18:510:18:54

-Not quite.

-Some are drier than others.

0:18:540:18:58

-OK. Tips.

0:18:580:19:00

-Delyth is very serious

-about crinkles.

0:19:000:19:03

-If they have crinkles,

-they don't win.

0:19:030:19:06

-Here's an example

-of wonderful bara brith...

0:19:070:19:09

-..but they've used paper.

0:19:100:19:13

-She doesn't even taste some of them.

-She just looks at them.

0:19:140:19:19

-No, not good enough.

0:19:190:19:21

-A bit dry.

0:19:220:19:23

-This isn't my typical

-Saturday afternoon.

0:19:240:19:28

-Wine tasting, maybe.

0:19:290:19:30

-Ooh, I can taste alcohol.

0:19:310:19:33

-Looks nice. A lot of fruit in there.

-No crinkles.

0:19:340:19:37

-That's good.

0:19:370:19:39

-Which one's the best?

0:19:400:19:41

-Which one's the best?

-

-First goes here.

0:19:410:19:43

-Why - the flavour?

0:19:440:19:45

-Why - the flavour?

-

-It's nice and moist.

0:19:450:19:47

-That's how bara brith should be.

0:19:470:19:49

-The board game room

-is popular every year.

0:19:510:19:54

-Elizabeth organises

-the domino competition.

0:19:540:19:58

-It's very competitive.

0:20:000:20:02

-It's very competitive.

-

-Oh, yes.

0:20:020:20:04

-Especially north against south.

0:20:040:20:06

-Is that the case here?

-Which branches are competing?

0:20:060:20:10

-We're Nantgaredig, near Carmarthen.

0:20:100:20:13

-Llandrillo, near Corwen.

0:20:130:20:15

-North v South.

0:20:150:20:18

-It's non-stop here.

0:20:200:20:22

-Have you competed before

-in the domino competition?

0:20:230:20:26

-Once.

0:20:260:20:27

-Did you win?

0:20:270:20:28

-Did you win?

-

-No, we didn't.

0:20:280:20:30

-You're back

-and you won't stop until you win.

0:20:310:20:34

-It's moved along quickly.

0:20:370:20:38

-It's very tense.

0:20:400:20:41

-We're down to the final four.

0:20:420:20:44

-I didn't realise dominos

-was so competitive.

0:20:450:20:47

-Then I remember playing it

-during my childhood.

0:20:480:20:51

-It's the same now in Merched y Wawr.

0:20:510:20:54

-Finished?

0:20:540:20:56

-Wrexham!

0:20:560:20:58

-Victory for Wrexham.

0:20:580:21:00

-I'm sweating.

0:21:010:21:03

-I like the domino room.

0:21:030:21:05

-It's like a casino.

0:21:050:21:07

-Back in the hall, there's a sketch

-and presentation competition.

0:21:080:21:12

-We're each going to have a tattoo.

0:21:130:21:15

-One of the branches competing is

-Cylch Aeron - my new best friends.

0:21:160:21:21

-Hannah and I are this year's judges.

0:21:210:21:24

-No pressure.

0:21:240:21:25

-We're the gold of Wales.

0:21:280:21:29

-# Ffa-la-la-la-la-la-la #

0:21:300:21:34

-Confident.

0:21:370:21:39

-They spoke clearly.

0:21:390:21:41

-There was a definite plot.

0:21:410:21:44

-# Fine and pleasant is seeing

0:21:440:21:46

-# Migldi magldi hei now now #

0:21:470:21:49

-What struck me

-is how much fun they have together.

0:21:490:21:53

-There's a positive energy.

0:21:550:21:56

-No-one's holding a phone, no-one's

-on-line, no-one's on Twitter.

0:21:580:22:02

-They're just enjoying

-crafts and cooking.

0:22:040:22:07

-And each other's company.

0:22:070:22:09

-Now we can celebrate.

0:22:100:22:12

-All the scripts are nice.

-There's plenty of energy.

0:22:160:22:21

-There are exits there, there and

-there if you need a quick getaway.

0:22:210:22:27

-The standard was so high.

0:22:270:22:29

-So nervous.

0:22:310:22:34

-The dramatic presentation

-competition.

0:22:340:22:37

-In first place,

-Henllan by a whisker.

0:22:370:22:40

-The sketch is next.

0:22:420:22:44

-In first place, Cylch Aeron.

0:22:440:22:46

-It feels as if everyone's

-part of a community here.

0:22:500:22:53

-It does.

0:22:530:22:54

-There's not a drop

-of testosterone in sight.

-Merched y Wawr

-has organised numerous parties...

0:23:130:23:16

-..to celebrate its 50th birthday.

0:23:170:23:19

-There's nowhere more suitable for

-the celebration than this location.

0:23:190:23:23

-We're in Parc, Bala.

0:23:230:23:26

-This is where the movement began.

0:23:270:23:29

-The women are here

-to celebrate and reminisce.

0:23:300:23:34

-# Our language and country

0:23:350:23:38

-# I'll love them more and more #

0:23:380:23:42

-A warm welcome to you.

0:23:420:23:45

-"Where we began, where we were born.

0:23:450:23:48

-"Our heritage and our Mecca too."

0:23:480:23:50

-The words on the wall

-outside this centre.

0:23:510:23:54

-Very few of the original members

-are here...

0:23:540:23:58

-..but the welcome has continued

-with the younger generation.

0:23:580:24:03

-There's always a welcome at Parc.

0:24:040:24:07

-This happened just before the Bala

-Eisteddfod in '67.

0:24:110:24:15

-This is Ganllwyd,

-Wales' second branch.

0:24:150:24:18

-Parc was first

-and Ganllwyd followed.

0:24:180:24:22

-You'd never believe the animosity

-that existed at the time.

0:24:220:24:27

-Against...?

0:24:270:24:28

-Merched y Wawr

-breaking away from the WI.

0:24:280:24:32

-We were part of the WI...

0:24:330:24:34

-..and this woman

-would give us eggs every month.

0:24:350:24:38

-I went up to her and asked,

-"Have you got my eggs?"

0:24:380:24:42

-"I haven't got any," she replied.

0:24:420:24:44

-I looked in her basket

-and it was full of eggs.

0:24:450:24:47

-Because you'd broken away

-and started Merched y Wawr?

0:24:470:24:51

-"They're ordered," she said.

0:24:510:24:53

-She faced opposition

-because she wanted to join...

0:24:540:24:57

-..a Welsh language movement

-and wanted to learn Welsh.

0:24:580:25:02

-When I was 13, 14,

-I battled against speaking Welsh...

0:25:020:25:06

-..because I took it for granted

-and spoke English...

0:25:060:25:09

-..without realising how hard people

-have fought for the language.

0:25:090:25:13

-When did you campaign

-for breast cancer screening?

0:25:140:25:18

-In the '80s. We went to lobby

-in the House of Commons.

0:25:180:25:23

-300 members of Merched y Wawr

-from across went to London.

0:25:230:25:27

-That was a special moment.

0:25:280:25:30

-A campaign for...?

0:25:300:25:32

-To secure a breast cancer

-screening service for Wales.

0:25:320:25:35

-Back then, it didn't exist.

-Women went to Clatterbridge.

0:25:360:25:39

-After our campaign, the screening

-service was introduced in Wales.

0:25:390:25:45

-Breast Test Wales was established

-as a result.

0:25:450:25:49

-It's traditionally Welsh. They don't

-wear it as a badge of honour.

0:25:510:25:55

-I had to push them

-to tell the story.

0:25:550:25:57

-It's such a shame that I,

-and my generation...

0:25:580:26:01

-..regard Merched y Wawr

-as just bara brith and tea.

0:26:010:26:05

-Anyone else want a cuppa?

-No? Are you sure?

0:26:060:26:09

-My generation don't have an excuse.

0:26:090:26:11

-It's time we pulled our socks up.

0:26:120:26:14

-It's your turn next.

0:26:140:26:16

-It's your turn next.

-

-You've inspired me.

0:26:160:26:17

-Excellent.

0:26:170:26:19

-# Happy birthday to us #

0:26:200:26:23

-I'm getting a first-hand experience

-of these women's energy.

0:26:240:26:28

-The flame has certainly

-not gone out.

0:26:290:26:31

-If anyone hides,

-I'll get them out to the front.

0:26:340:26:37

-It was great to hear about their

-battles over the last 50 years.

0:26:410:26:45

-I want to hear more, especially

-about the breast cancer campaign.

0:26:460:26:50

-Mererid, nice to see you again.

0:26:510:26:53

-Buses travelled to London

-from every Welsh region.

0:26:570:27:02

-We gathered outside

-the House of Commons.

0:27:020:27:05

-300 members of Merched y Wawr.

0:27:050:27:07

-Actress Nerys Hughes

-became the face of our campaign.

0:27:070:27:13

-We attracted

-a lot of media attention.

0:27:130:27:17

-750 women die every year in Wales

-from breast cancer.

0:27:170:27:22

-When we joined together,

-we were a stronger lobbying force.

0:27:220:27:28

-You were national organiser

-from 1984 to 1991.

0:27:300:27:33

-Here you are in your office.

0:27:330:27:35

-That was a golden age

-for Merched y Wawr campaigns.

0:27:360:27:40

-There were campaigns

-for a new Welsh Language Act...

0:27:420:27:47

-..and the plight

-of the Welsh language in Wales.

0:27:470:27:50

-We take the language for granted

-these days.

0:27:510:27:54

-Back then, we fought for our rights.

0:27:540:27:57

-This is you at Westminster.

0:27:580:28:00

-The day we were lobbying,

-with the Plaid Cymru MPs...

0:28:000:28:06

-..Ieuan Wyn Jones

-and Dafydd Elis-Thomas.

0:28:060:28:09

-It must have been an exciting time

-and an exciting feeling...

0:28:090:28:13

-..that propelled you

-towards the next campaign.

0:28:130:28:16

-It was,

-when you look back at that time.

0:28:160:28:19

-It was exciting, very exciting.

0:28:190:28:21

-When Merched y Wawr started...

0:28:220:28:24

-..conducting our business in Welsh

-was revolutionary.

0:28:250:28:29

-Having a cookery demonstration

-in the Welsh language...

0:28:300:28:35

-You battled to secure that.

0:28:360:28:39

-These days,

-the battles have been won.

0:28:390:28:42

-The Welsh Language Act, the Senedd.

0:28:450:28:48

-I think a movement like Merched

-y Wawr gives women an opportunity...

0:28:480:28:53

-..to increase their confidence...

0:28:530:28:55

-..and do things

-they might not think they could do.

0:28:550:28:58

-Taking on roles within a branch

-increases someone's confidence.

0:28:580:29:03

-Public speaking.

0:29:030:29:04

-It gives them opportunities

-and teaches them new skills...

0:29:050:29:09

-..they would never have had

-had they not joined Merched y Wawr.

0:29:090:29:14

-I've been on this journey

-for a couple of months.

0:29:210:29:24

-There's a fashion show

-in the Royal Welsh Show next week.

0:29:240:29:28

-I'm meeting Margarette today.

0:29:280:29:30

-Margarette is a fashionable member

-of Merched y Wawr.

0:29:300:29:34

-I work in the fashion world.

0:29:340:29:36

-I want to know more about fashion

-in Merched y Wawr...

0:29:370:29:40

-..and how fashions

-have changed over the years.

0:29:410:29:44

-We've been invited

-to organise an event...

0:29:440:29:47

-..to show the fashions of Merched

-y Wawr over the past 50 years.

0:29:470:29:51

-They think I like fashion

-for some reason.

0:29:510:29:56

-I have no idea why!

0:29:560:29:57

-Merched y Wawr started in '67.

-Did you join way back then?

0:29:580:30:02

-I didn't join until 1970.

-The maxis were in fashion then.

0:30:020:30:07

-I like maxis.

0:30:080:30:09

-I like maxis.

-

-This is a special one.

0:30:090:30:11

-It was designed by Gina Fratini. She

-designed clothes for Princess Diana.

0:30:110:30:15

-What kind of an era

-was the '70s for Merched y Wawr?

0:30:150:30:19

-It was exciting. It was a constant

-battle over Welsh language rights.

0:30:200:30:24

-We weren't allowed

-to write cheques in Welsh.

0:30:240:30:28

-We caused long queues in M&S

-for writing a cheque in Welsh.

0:30:280:30:34

-We were always campaigning.

0:30:340:30:36

-Merched y Wawr supported

-every Welsh language campaign.

0:30:360:30:41

-Whatever we wore,

-we all felt the same.

0:30:410:30:44

-We've met members

-from different branches.

0:30:470:30:51

-It's nice to see

-how different all the members are...

0:30:520:30:55

-..but they all fight

-for the same values.

0:30:550:30:58

-I had this when we went to Italy.

-There was a Valentino shop in Rome.

0:30:580:31:03

-The shop door was locked.

0:31:030:31:05

-You had to ring the bell

-if you wanted to see the clothes.

0:31:050:31:09

-Nest,

-my friend from St Clears said...

0:31:100:31:12

-.."Margarette, you're wearing

-his clothes. Ring the bell."

0:31:130:31:18

-Did you buy a dress there?

0:31:180:31:20

-Did you buy a dress there?

-

-I'd bought one in Carmarthen.

0:31:200:31:22

-I didn't have to go

-to Rome to buy a Valentino...

0:31:220:31:25

-..when I could buy one

-in Carmarthen.

0:31:250:31:28

-I work in the fashion world.

0:31:280:31:30

-I never think of Merched y Wawr as

-women who are interested in fashion.

0:31:300:31:36

-It's nice to see

-a different side to them.

0:31:360:31:39

-They're just like me and my friends.

0:31:390:31:42

-Other people have stereotyped us.

0:31:420:31:44

-Tell me, would you be willing

-to wear some of these clothes?

0:31:440:31:49

-In the fashion show?

0:31:490:31:51

-Yes. Well, I want to wear this one.

0:31:510:31:54

-Alright, OK.

0:31:540:31:56

-This is...

0:31:560:31:57

-This is...

-

-The best one.

0:31:570:31:58

-I like the flowers and this one.

-I like a lot of them.

0:31:580:32:02

-I'll wear them all for you.

0:32:020:32:04

-They'll fit you but I doubt

-they'll fit me anymore.

0:32:040:32:07

-I enjoyed meeting the Gorseinon

-branch at the monthly meeting.

0:32:120:32:16

-Brenda talked about the enjoyment

-of the weekly walk at the branch.

0:32:160:32:22

-I want to see

-if it's something I'd enjoy too.

0:32:220:32:25

-Can I enjoy the company

-of older women every week?

0:32:250:32:29

-The most important decision

-is where we stop for tea.

0:32:320:32:36

-That's an easy decision.

0:32:360:32:38

-We could write a book about

-all the cafes we've visited.

0:32:380:32:43

-You identify all the characters.

0:32:430:32:46

-I'll have the bara brith as well,

-please.

0:32:460:32:49

-Just after talking to them

-for 10 minutes.

0:32:490:32:52

-It's been a successful year.

0:32:520:32:54

-It's been a successful year.

-

-50 members.

0:32:540:32:56

-It's been a successful year.

-

-50 members.

-

-We attracted new members this year.

-They're slightly younger than us.

0:32:560:33:01

-So you do get new members

-joining regularly.

0:33:010:33:04

-We've had guest speakers.

0:33:040:33:06

-One thing is clear, they're worried

-about attracting younger members.

0:33:060:33:13

-I was 17

-when I joined Merched y Wawr.

0:33:130:33:16

-I had two children at the time.

0:33:170:33:19

-It was somewhere for us to go

-to socialise...

0:33:190:33:22

-..and leave the children at home.

0:33:220:33:24

-They take their children with them

-to pubs and restaurants these days.

0:33:240:33:29

-Men don't want responsibility.

0:33:290:33:32

-Some men say their wives

-are working...

0:33:320:33:35

-Ooh, dear! Hello!

0:33:350:33:37

-Are you on telly?

0:33:370:33:39

-Hello.

0:33:410:33:42

-She's camera-ready.

0:33:420:33:44

-When I moved to Gorseinon,

-I had no-one to speak Welsh to.

0:33:460:33:50

-That's why I joined the branch.

0:33:500:33:52

-I'm still a member.

0:33:520:33:54

-When was it - 1972?

-Almost 45 years ago later.

0:33:550:33:59

-That feeling of giving

-something back to society...

0:34:010:34:05

-..doesn't exist for my generation.

0:34:050:34:08

-It still exists for these women.

0:34:080:34:10

-50 years.

0:34:110:34:13

-We're still here.

0:34:130:34:15

-Thank you very much, both of you.

0:34:150:34:19

-Thank you.

0:34:190:34:21

-Ta-ra. Ta-ra, good luck.

-See you next time. Thank you.

0:34:210:34:25

-They found it funny to see me here.

0:34:250:34:28

-I'd love to join them every week,

-they're a lovely bunch.

0:34:290:34:33

-They have plenty of stories,

-they're very lively.

0:34:330:34:36

-They're a real laugh, but...

0:34:360:34:38

-I think everyone is aware

-that there's an age gap.

0:34:390:34:44

-Since the 90s, a stepping stone

-has been established...

0:34:480:34:53

-..to attract younger members

-to the movement - Clwb Gwawr.

0:34:530:34:56

-An energetic Clwb Gwawr

-meet every month in Abergavenny.

0:34:570:35:01

-Tonight's activity

-is a selfie treasure hunt.

0:35:020:35:04

-Hannah and I are eager

-to join in the fun.

0:35:040:35:07

-We'll take a walk down to the pub.

0:35:100:35:11

-We'll take selfies...

0:35:120:35:14

-..or if you're too shy,

-photos of what you see.

0:35:140:35:17

-Is that OK?

0:35:180:35:19

-Is that OK?

-

-Yes.

0:35:190:35:20

-Jess, you're an expert selfie taker.

0:35:200:35:24

-Against the light and up.

0:35:250:35:28

-From above.

0:35:280:35:30

-I always take about 50

-and choose one!

0:35:310:35:34

-How long does that take?!

0:35:350:35:36

-OK?

0:35:400:35:41

-OK?

-

-I didn't get that treatment!

0:35:410:35:43

-What a lovely night

-for a selfie treasure hunt.

0:35:450:35:47

-From above.

0:35:480:35:49

-I'm just copying Jess.

0:35:490:35:51

-Clwb Gwawr.

0:35:530:35:55

-I've been a member for five years.

0:35:560:35:59

-Before that, I was a member

-of Merched y Wawr in Brecon.

0:35:590:36:03

-The activities were different...

0:36:030:36:05

-..but the enjoyment

-was just the same.

0:36:050:36:08

-What did you do?

0:36:080:36:10

-Wine tasting, cheese tasting, walks.

0:36:100:36:14

-Food and drink

-dominate our activities.

0:36:150:36:18

-We visit wonderful places to eat.

0:36:180:36:22

-Is it different to your

-preconception of Merched y wawr?

0:36:260:36:32

-Yes, well, for me Merched y Wawr

-is women older than me.

0:36:320:36:36

-I'm getting older

-but I'm not that old.

0:36:360:36:40

-I didn't want to do crochet,

-knitting and jam-making.

0:36:400:36:44

-I wanted to meet others

-who spoke Welsh in this area.

0:36:440:36:48

-This is a very Anglicised area.

0:36:480:36:50

-We create our own agenda.

-We do what we want to do.

0:36:500:36:54

-We visit vineyards to taste wine...

0:36:540:36:56

-We visit vineyards to taste wine...

-

-There's a lot of wine involved!

0:36:560:36:59

-It's very nice.

0:36:590:37:01

-Or doing something like this

-in the middle of summer.

0:37:010:37:05

-It's different.

0:37:050:37:06

-It's different.

-

-And you socialise in Welsh.

0:37:060:37:09

-Got it.

0:37:110:37:13

-I like doing it from above.

-It's a lot better.

0:37:130:37:18

-Tips.

0:37:180:37:19

-How do you feel

-it's helped your Welsh?

0:37:240:37:27

-You're a learner, like me.

0:37:270:37:30

-Do you think coming together

-as a group has helped your fluency?

0:37:310:37:37

-Yes, definitely.

-I can speak Welsh more fluently now.

0:37:370:37:41

-I meet a lot of Welsh speakers.

0:37:410:37:44

-Meeting and socialising in Welsh is

-like campaigning for the language.

0:37:440:37:48

-The fact that we socialise and speak

-Welsh keeps the language alive.

0:37:480:37:53

-In a community

-that doesn't speak much Welsh.

0:37:530:37:56

-In a pub, in a restaurant.

-Everyone hears us speaking Welsh.

0:37:570:38:01

-In the vineyard!

0:38:010:38:03

-I've really enjoyed myself.

0:38:070:38:09

-Me too. They gave us

-a warm welcome and they're a laugh.

0:38:100:38:14

-That appeals to people

-and makes them want to join.

0:38:140:38:17

-It's an opportunity to speak

-Welsh in the pub...

0:38:170:38:21

-..not only in work or at school.

0:38:210:38:24

-Here's another selfie opportunity.

0:38:240:38:26

-A selfie of yourself with a drink.

0:38:260:38:29

-Ready? Hang on.

0:38:290:38:32

-Volume.

0:38:320:38:34

-Clwb Gwawr!

-The Royal Welsh Show is an important

-event for many national societies...

0:38:440:38:49

-..including Merched y Wawr.

0:38:490:38:51

-The stall is a hive

-of social activity every day.

0:38:510:38:54

-I can see men.

-I didn't expect to see any.

0:38:550:38:58

-Everyone is ready to take a shift

-serving tea and Welsh cakes.

0:38:590:39:03

-As part of their

-50th birthday celebration...

0:39:090:39:12

-..the women have organised

-their own show.

0:39:120:39:15

-As a professional model,

-I can't wait to help.

0:39:150:39:18

-We're here for the fashion show.

0:39:190:39:21

-The Merched y Wawr fashion show.

0:39:210:39:24

-I've been rehearsing

-with Margarette.

0:39:240:39:26

-Lots of designer clothes.

-And you're modelling.

0:39:270:39:31

-I'd heard. Are you modelling too?

0:39:310:39:33

-I'd heard. Are you modelling too?

-

-I am, I am.

0:39:330:39:34

-I'll copy you.

0:39:350:39:36

-I have shoes this colour.

0:39:430:39:46

-I knew, I knew.

0:39:460:39:48

-That's fantastic.

0:39:480:39:50

-I love it.

0:39:500:39:52

-It brings out

-the colour of your eyes.

0:39:530:39:55

-Everything's designer, Margarette.

0:39:550:39:58

-These are all your clothes.

0:40:000:40:02

-Don't break anything!

0:40:040:40:07

-We don't have enough

-statuesque models.

0:40:070:40:10

-What are you trying to say,

-Margarette?

0:40:100:40:13

-Ouch!

0:40:140:40:15

-This is the '90s, according to

-Margarette. I'd wear this out now!

0:40:160:40:20

-This is like hanging out

-with my friends, it's brilliant.

0:40:200:40:24

-Margarette is so much fun

-and her clothes are incredible.

0:40:240:40:29

-Modelling tips. Shoulders back.

0:40:290:40:32

-Blue steel.

0:40:320:40:33

-Be confident. If you're not enjoying

-it, the crowd won't enjoy it.

0:40:330:40:39

-Here they are -

-please welcome the models.

0:40:390:40:43

-Hannah's coming in wearing a dress.

0:40:430:40:46

-I told Hannah

-it was my going away dress.

0:40:470:40:50

-She asked,

-"What a going away dress?"

0:40:510:40:53

-Doesn't Jessica look beautiful

-wearing this?

0:41:000:41:03

-You wouldn't usually associate

-Merched y Wawr with fashion.

0:41:050:41:09

-It's important. There's been

-so much fashion over the 50 years.

0:41:090:41:13

-Minis, maxis, flamboyant hats.

0:41:140:41:18

-Fashion gives me confidence.

-That's the most important thing.

0:41:180:41:22

-That shows what kind of effect

-clothes can have on a person.

0:41:220:41:28

-I've had a great afternoon.

-I've enjoyed their company.

0:41:310:41:36

-I've been part of their circle.

0:41:360:41:39

-Just watching them enjoying

-themselves through fashion.

0:41:390:41:43

-It's an interesting way

-to look back at the history...

0:41:440:41:48

-..and celebrating the 50.

0:41:480:41:50

-Everyone looks brilliant.

0:41:500:41:52

-Hot on the heels of the Royal

-Welsh is the National Eisteddfod.

0:41:570:42:00

-It's an important event

-in the annual calendar.

0:42:000:42:04

-Their stall is an important stop-off

-for a welcome, a cup of tea...

0:42:050:42:09

-..and traditional Welsh cakes.

0:42:100:42:12

-It's my first visit

-to the Eisteddfod.

0:42:150:42:17

-I never went further

-than the Penrhyncoch Eisteddfod.

0:42:170:42:22

-Merched y Wawr is part of

-the furniture in events like this.

0:42:230:42:27

-It's a very special Eisteddfod

-this year.

0:42:280:42:31

-Four years ago,

-we had a national discussion...

0:42:310:42:34

-..to determine

-how we'd celebrate the 50.

0:42:340:42:37

-One of the ideas

-was to present the Crown.

0:42:370:42:40

-That dream has been realised.

-We're so excited it's happened.

0:42:400:42:45

-The band represents

-the Menai Suspension Bridge.

0:42:460:42:49

-It's the bridge that links Anglesey

-to the mainland and the world.

0:42:500:42:54

-A bridge gives people

-the opportunity to meet.

0:42:540:42:57

-That's what Merched y Wawr does too.

0:42:570:43:00

-Women meet and speak in Welsh.

0:43:000:43:03

-This crown is very relevant

-to Merched y Wawr.

0:43:030:43:06

-The blue cap, my missus

-is responsible for the cap...

0:43:060:43:11

-..blue is the colour

-of Merched y Wawr.

0:43:110:43:14

-I thought so.

0:43:140:43:16

-I'm a member of the Gorsedd.

0:43:200:43:22

-I'm interested to see

-who wins the crown.

0:43:230:43:25

-You're wearing wellies now but I'm

-told you'll be wearing gold sandals.

0:43:250:43:31

-I'll be wearing gold sandals - we're

-celebrating the golden anniversary.

0:43:310:43:36

-Tegwen is so happy.

-You can tell by her face.

0:43:390:43:42

-She's so proud to be part of this.

0:43:420:43:45

-I've never heard of this.

-What's all this dressing up about?!

0:43:450:43:49

-Look at you. I like the outfit.

0:43:510:43:54

-Very smart.

0:43:540:43:56

-And the sandals.

0:43:560:43:58

-The gold sandals.

0:43:580:43:59

-And the lippy. I can spot the lippy.

0:44:000:44:02

-You look lovely. How do you feel?

-Excited, nervous?

0:44:030:44:06

-Excited.

-I hope someone wins the crown.

0:44:060:44:09

-I really do hope so.

0:44:090:44:11

-Tegwen really wanted someone to win.

0:44:300:44:33

-She'll be happy. She feels

-she belongs to something special.

0:44:340:44:38

-Someone's won the crown.

-Tegwen will feel so pleased.

0:44:380:44:43

-Is there peace?

0:44:460:44:47

-Is there peace?

-

-Peace.

0:44:470:44:49

-You must be over the moon

-to see someone winning the crown.

0:44:500:44:55

-I was looking out at the audience...

0:44:550:44:58

-..and so many Merched y Wawr members

-were in the audience.

0:44:580:45:02

-They were so proud at that moment.

0:45:020:45:05

-You could see from Tegwen's face...

0:45:060:45:09

-..that it was

-a special moment for her.

0:45:090:45:11

-They'd had the chance

-to design the crown.

0:45:120:45:15

-I just feel glad for Merched y Wawr

-that people acknowledge their work.

0:45:150:45:20

-They do so much

-for the Eisteddfod and Wales.

0:45:200:45:23

-We're approaching the end

-of our time with the ladies.

0:45:290:45:32

-There's one important event

-to attend.

0:45:330:45:35

-The Merched y Wawr residential

-weekend, the highlight of the year.

0:45:350:45:39

-Aberystwyth is my

-old stomping ground.

0:45:390:45:42

-Merched y Wawr's residential

-weekend is an annual event...

0:45:420:45:46

-..and it's special this year

-because it's our 50th.

0:45:460:45:49

-We see the same old faces

-every year.

0:45:500:45:53

-It's nice catching up

-with old friends.

0:45:530:45:56

-Some members only meet once a year.

0:45:570:45:59

-We're celebrating together.

-We're so proud.

0:46:000:46:03

-A glass of wine...

0:46:030:46:05

-A glass of wine...

-

-There's no time for hangovers.

0:46:050:46:07

-We have a long day tomorrow.

0:46:070:46:09

-Who let you in?

0:46:130:46:15

-Journey's end.

0:46:180:46:20

-Journey's end.

-

-Journey's end, Jess.

0:46:200:46:22

-I feel sad that I won't see

-Margarette, Delyth and Tegwen.

0:46:220:46:29

-It's been an educational journey.

0:46:300:46:32
