-"If the town is a yearning

0:00:060:00:07

-"That drew people from the outset

0:00:080:00:10

-"There is in us all a wish

0:00:110:00:13

-"To live close to the countryside."

0:00:140:00:17

-The words of the peerless poet,

-the late Dic Jones.

0:00:220:00:26

-Welcome to a new series

-of Cefn Gwlad.

0:00:260:00:29

-The old favourite

-has undergone some changes.

0:00:290:00:33

-Every programme

-will now be an hour...

0:00:330:00:36

-..and I'm joined

-by a gang of new faces...

0:00:360:00:39

-..to bring the wealth of rural life

-to your screens every week.

0:00:390:00:43

-Farming newcomer Mari Lovgreen...

0:00:450:00:48

-..appreciates the enterprise

-of rural families.

0:00:480:00:51

-I feel that I have

-a lot to learn from you.

0:00:510:00:54

-Rhys Lewis grew up on the land...

0:00:560:00:58

-..but watching a night rally

-near the farm never fails to thrill.

0:00:580:01:03

-The reigning champion.

-No pressure tonight.

0:01:030:01:06

-We meet a family that starred

-on Cefn Gwlad many years ago.

0:01:070:01:12

-Have you ever fallen in the river?

0:01:130:01:14

-Have you ever fallen in the river?

-

-Yes, many a time.

0:01:140:01:15

-Can you swim?

0:01:150:01:16

-Can you swim?

-

-Only like a brick.

0:01:160:01:18

-Whoa! They're great!

0:01:190:01:20

-And the youngest team member,

-raised in the city like myself...

0:01:220:01:26

-..but dreaming about rural life.

0:01:260:01:29

-..but dreaming about rural life.

-

-They're wild. I've got a new sheep!

0:01:290:01:31

-And I'm in the magnificent area

-of Eifionydd in northwest Wales.

0:01:330:01:38

-Whenever a rural community

-flourishes...

0:01:420:01:46

-..you can be sure

-that a tireless character...

0:01:460:01:50

-..will be hard at work

-all year round.

0:01:500:01:53

-In this lovely corner

-of Eifionydd...

0:01:540:01:57

-..in the shadow of the Rivals,

-is one such character.

0:01:580:02:02

-Ifan Ceiri Garage.

0:02:020:02:04

-A man forever seen

-in a dark woolly cap...

0:02:060:02:09

-..and a man who wears many hats.

0:02:090:02:13

-As well as the garage, Ifan Hughes

-runs numerous community businesses.

0:02:160:02:21

-An early riser

-for his newspaper round...

0:02:210:02:25

-..a funeral director,

-a bus driver...

0:02:260:02:29

-..a steadfast governor

-at the local school...

0:02:300:02:33

-..a singer and author of the book

-Cap Gwlan A'r Oriau Man.

0:02:330:02:39

-All in all, he's a unique character.

0:02:390:02:42

-Hello!

0:02:430:02:44

-Hello, is the boss here?

0:02:450:02:47

-Through.

0:02:470:02:48

-Thank you.

0:02:480:02:49

-Hello there.

0:02:520:02:54

-Anyone home? There you are.

0:02:540:02:56

-How are you, Ifan?

0:02:570:02:58

-Not too bad. You?

0:02:590:03:00

-Not too bad. You?

-

-What an awful morning.

0:03:000:03:02

-You're lucky to be indoors.

0:03:020:03:05

-What are you doing with this van?

0:03:050:03:08

-The customer came in complaining

-that the steering is heavy.

0:03:080:03:13

-We suspect that the pump has gone,

-but that's over 100.

0:03:130:03:17

-I'll make sure I'm right

-before ordering it...

0:03:180:03:21

-..or I'll be stuck with it.

0:03:210:03:23

-I need a spanner, first of all.

0:03:230:03:25

-Don't worry, I need a stick!

0:03:260:03:28

-I need a spanner first.

0:03:290:03:30

-I need a spanner first.

-

-This is a tidy garage.

0:03:300:03:32

-We try to look after it.

0:03:320:03:34

-They must be solid silver.

0:03:340:03:36

-If we look after it,

-it'll look after us.

0:03:360:03:39

-Exactly.

0:03:390:03:40

-Only a pig works in dirt.

0:03:400:03:42

-Only a pig works in dirt.

-

-I'm here this morning.

0:03:420:03:44

-The lad who's here

-has taken a lorry for a test.

0:03:440:03:47

-Nia's in the office.

0:03:470:03:50

-Nia's in the office.

-

-Is she your daughter?

0:03:500:03:51

-Nia's my daughter,

-and Mared is the receptionist.

0:03:510:03:57

-I want to start it now.

0:03:570:03:59

-I want to check

-if there's pressure in the pump.

0:03:590:04:04

-Are you clear?

0:04:060:04:07

-Yes, I should hope so.

0:04:070:04:09

-A pipe takes oil into it

-and another pipe takes the oil out.

0:04:230:04:27

-The oil going out is pressurized.

0:04:270:04:31

-It makes the steering light.

0:04:310:04:33

-But it's not working.

0:04:340:04:35

-It's as if you're conducting

-a choir under that van!

0:04:380:04:42

-We'll get Nia in the office

-to order the part now.

0:04:440:04:47

-What's in here?

0:04:480:04:49

-These are the newspapers.

0:04:490:04:51

-We started the papers

-when we stopped selling petrol...

0:04:520:04:56

-..to keep people coming here.

0:04:560:04:59

-We sell these...

0:05:000:05:01

-We sell these...

-

-You also sell eggs, I see.

0:05:010:05:03

-Out into the open air.

0:05:040:05:07

-Yes, Nia's in here.

0:05:070:05:08

-Hello again. How are you?

0:05:090:05:11

-Hello again. How are you?

-

-OK, thanks.

0:05:110:05:12

-This man's busy.

0:05:120:05:14

-He is very busy.

0:05:150:05:16

-I'm having trouble

-keeping up with him.

0:05:160:05:19

-We need to order a part

-for that van.

0:05:210:05:23

-I've had a look at it.

0:05:230:05:25

-The power steering pump's gone.

0:05:260:05:29

-Is he easy to work for?

0:05:290:05:31

-Yes, pretty easy.

0:05:310:05:32

-We don't argue very often.

0:05:330:05:34

-Never, actually.

0:05:350:05:36

-Everyone seems happy here.

0:05:360:05:38

-Some of the things we do

-will never make me a millionaire.

0:05:390:05:44

-There isn't enough profit in them.

0:05:440:05:46

-But one thing

-will attract something else.

0:05:460:05:50

-Everyone watching

-will be in tears...

0:05:500:05:54

-..because you never make a profit.

0:05:540:05:58

-Your daughter's laughing there.

0:05:580:06:00

-You'd make a fine preacher.

0:06:020:06:05

-Wouldn't he make a preacher?

0:06:050:06:07

-Please don't put ideas

-into his head.

0:06:070:06:10

-Honestly, he's got the voice

-and the beard.

0:06:100:06:13

-He'd make a fine preacher.

0:06:130:06:15

-More work for me!

0:06:150:06:17

-What have we got here?

0:06:190:06:21

-It's Dylan's car.

0:06:210:06:22

-He's kitting it out as a rally car.

0:06:220:06:25

-He's installed a roll cage

-and rally seats and so on.

0:06:250:06:29

-He's doing all this himself.

0:06:290:06:31

-And he's on the staff?

0:06:320:06:33

-Yes, Dylan's been here for years.

0:06:330:06:38

-Over 35 years.

0:06:380:06:40

-Here he is, hard at work.

0:06:400:06:42

-How's it going? Are you alright?

0:06:430:06:45

-This is the rally driver.

0:06:460:06:47

-Yes, this is him.

0:06:480:06:49

-When's the next rally?

0:06:500:06:52

-The first one for the new car

-is in March.

0:06:520:06:55

-I'm looking forward to Rali Llyn.

0:06:550:06:57

-I'm looking forward to Rali Llyn.

-

-And the new car.

0:06:570:06:58

-And Ifan sitting next to you.

0:06:580:07:00

-With a light on his head,

-like a stable lamp.

0:07:000:07:05

-Yes, Rali Llyn

-is a firm favourite every year.

0:07:080:07:12

-But the first rally of the season...

0:07:120:07:15

-..is on new team member

-Rhys Lewis' doorstep.

0:07:150:07:19

-The Dyfi Valley night rally.

0:07:190:07:22

-The Dyfi Valley rally

-passes the house every year...

0:07:300:07:34

-..and keeps me awake all night.

0:07:340:07:36

-This year,

-I've come to see what's happening...

0:07:370:07:41

-..and to meet a few characters.

0:07:410:07:43

-Hi, Kev, how are you?

0:07:520:07:54

-The reigning champion.

-No pressure tonight.

0:07:550:07:58

-No, no pressure.

0:07:590:08:00

-There are a few cars here tonight,

-but what attracts you to rallying?

0:08:000:08:06

-It all started many years ago.

0:08:060:08:10

-Obviously, it's in the blood

-and it gives me a buzz.

0:08:100:08:13

-Within reason, it's also affordable.

0:08:140:08:18

-Thank you for entering.

0:08:200:08:22

-Make sure

-you read the driving standards...

0:08:220:08:25

-..and drive

-the way you're supposed to drive.

0:08:250:08:28

-I'm here with Llion Tractor,

-as he's known.

0:08:310:08:36

-Llion, you're navigating tonight.

0:08:360:08:38

-For Carwyn Pughe.

0:08:380:08:41

-Yes, a local lad.

0:08:410:08:42

-He should know where he's going.

0:08:420:08:44

-I hope so, because I don't!

0:08:450:08:46

-What makes you want to sit

-in the silly seat, as it's called?

0:08:490:08:53

-I'm not sure. I started as a driver.

0:08:530:08:55

-But it cost a lot

-and the silly seat was cheaper.

0:08:550:08:59

-What is the thrill?

0:08:590:09:01

-That's a good question.

0:09:020:09:03

-The speed.

-Everything, in a way.

0:09:030:09:05

-Meilyr, I hear you haven't

-had much sleep this week.

0:09:150:09:19

-We've all been busy this week.

0:09:190:09:22

-Hopefully, by tomorrow morning,

-it will all have been worth it.

0:09:220:09:27

-This rally has a few pulls

-at your heartstrings, doesn't it?

0:09:270:09:32

-It's in memory of my father.

0:09:320:09:35

-It's been held for a few years now.

0:09:350:09:40

-It's run by a big team, a good team.

0:09:400:09:43

-A lot have helped over the years.

0:09:430:09:45

-I've competed without much success,

-and I've come over to this side now.

0:09:450:09:51

-Here's another familiar face

-on Cefn Gwlad, Dafydd Post.

0:10:000:10:04

-How are you, Rhys?

0:10:060:10:08

-Not bad. A bit wet.

0:10:080:10:09

-It's dry in here.

0:10:090:10:11

-I'm sure it is.

0:10:110:10:12

-What goes on behind the scenes

-before you get here?

0:10:120:10:17

-The first step is a noise test.

0:10:170:10:20

-The car must be below certain

-decibels before it can run.

0:10:200:10:24

-In scrutineering, they check

-that everything works on your car.

0:10:250:10:29

-They check that you have an MOT

-certificate and the car's logbook...

0:10:300:10:35

-..to make sure that you own it.

0:10:350:10:38

-Can anyone turn up and enter?

0:10:380:10:41

-You have to be a member

-of a motor club...

0:10:410:10:44

-..and hold an MSA licence.

0:10:450:10:47

-What makes you want to go out

-on a wet night like this?

0:10:470:10:50

-I enjoy it, the buzz,

-a lot of adrenaline.

0:10:510:10:53

-A big adrenaline rush.

0:10:540:10:55

-And when you...

0:10:550:10:57

-When you're close to winning,

-you want to win.

0:10:580:11:01

-Well, what a night.

0:11:130:11:15

-It all ended at six in the morning,

-and there's always a winner.

0:11:150:11:19

-It was a very challenging route.

0:11:220:11:24

-They had everything in place.

0:11:250:11:27

-It was a good achievement.

0:11:280:11:29

-Congratulations to Kevin

-for winning again this year.

0:11:320:11:37

-Meanwhile, back in Lleyn,

-I'm hoping for a more sedate trip...

0:11:370:11:41

-..with another of Ifan's businesses

-in Llanaelhaearn.

0:11:410:11:45

-Here's the old hearse.

0:11:450:11:47

-We're going by bus, Dai!

0:11:480:11:50

-Dylan's been doing the brakes.

0:11:510:11:53

-We want to take it for a test drive.

0:11:530:11:56

-There's so much traffic,

-I'm waving automatically!

0:11:590:12:03

-Where exactly are we going?

0:12:040:12:06

-We're going up to Llithfaen,

-to try it on a few hills.

0:12:060:12:09

-We've fitted new brakes.

0:12:100:12:12

-We need some hills to warm them up

-and make sure they're working.

0:12:120:12:17

-You've been driving a bus

-for some years, Ifan.

0:12:220:12:26

-Many years now.

0:12:260:12:27

-Many years.

0:12:270:12:29

-When I was at school,

-I was badly behaved on the bus.

0:12:300:12:33

-After six months, I got a job

-on the bus, mornings and evenings.

0:12:340:12:39

-Standing in the front,

-opening and closing the door.

0:12:410:12:44

-There were no automatic doors then.

0:12:450:12:47

-It opens easily.

0:13:050:13:06

-Yes, it does.

0:13:060:13:08

-Nant Gwrtheyrn's ahead of us.

0:13:080:13:11

-I've carried hundreds of people

-down to Nant over the years.

0:13:110:13:17

-My first bus was a van.

0:13:190:13:22

-Just a van,

-fitted with wooden seats.

0:13:220:13:26

-Then I got another van,

-and cut out windows in its sides...

0:13:270:13:32

-..so that the passengers

-had a bit more light.

0:13:320:13:35

-It still had wooden benches,

-but along the sides...

0:13:350:13:39

-..and a carpet in the middle

-to make it more comfortable.

0:13:390:13:43

-But times then moved on.

0:13:430:13:45

-I then got a bus where people sat

-facing forward, like this one.

0:13:460:13:50

-We'll carry on to try this out.

0:13:520:13:54

-It's an ideal place to test brakes.

0:14:070:14:10

-Good grief. I hope they're OK.

0:14:110:14:14

-You need brakes now.

0:14:150:14:17

-Goodness gracious me.

0:14:280:14:30

-Good heavens.

0:14:300:14:33

-If it failed to take that turn...

0:14:330:14:35

-..eternity, here we come.

0:14:370:14:39

-Slow down, this is a hell of a bend.

0:14:400:14:42

-I'm glad we've arrived, Ifan.

0:14:470:14:50

-Goodness,

-that was a proper rally track.

-Still to come, Mari Lovgreen,

-a newcomer to farming...

0:15:160:15:20

-..is amazed by rural enterprise.

0:15:210:15:24

-Quite a man.

0:15:250:15:26

-Eh? Quite a man.

0:15:260:15:28

-And he can get up early.

0:15:300:15:33

-At Ceiri Garage in Llanaelhaearn,

-Ifan Hughes is up with the lark.

0:15:340:15:38

-It's four in the morning,

-and he's already at work.

0:15:390:15:42

-Out we get, Dai,

-to get to the paper box.

0:15:520:15:55

-If I can open the door...

0:15:560:15:57

-This is like a cupboard.

0:16:040:16:05

-There's a story behind this.

0:16:050:16:08

-It was designed

-to hold newspapers.

0:16:090:16:12

-It's here because my sister,

-who lives here...

0:16:120:16:15

-..used to keep the village shop.

0:16:150:16:17

-When she retired,

-there was no-one to take over.

0:16:180:16:21

-I made this box,

-and everyone has a slot.

0:16:220:16:26

-That's how we do it.

0:16:260:16:28

-Ideal.

0:16:280:16:29

-This is the objective.

0:16:300:16:32

-Some used to tell me

-to leave the paper at the door.

0:16:320:16:38

-I refused to do that...

0:16:380:16:40

-..because I want people

-to walk around the village...

0:16:400:16:43

-..as they did when the shop

-was open, and see each other.

0:16:440:16:47

-If I delivered, they wouldn't

-come out of their houses.

0:16:480:16:52

-We're going to walk now.

0:16:530:16:54

-We're going to walk now.

-

-Oh!

0:16:540:16:55

-We've got some milk to take with us.

0:16:550:16:57

-We want this one...

0:16:580:17:00

-..but I've got another job as well.

0:17:000:17:04

-The gates are squeaky,

-so I've brought some oil with me.

0:17:080:17:13

-You can put a drop on my knees!

0:17:130:17:16

-Let me see now.

0:17:200:17:21

-Is it noisy today?

0:17:220:17:23

-GATE SQUEAKS QUIETLY

0:17:250:17:26

-Can you hear that?

0:17:270:17:28

-I'll just put a spot...

0:17:300:17:33

-..a spot of oil

-on top of the gate pin.

0:17:360:17:39

-Well, goodness me.

0:17:430:17:45

-You learn something every day.

0:17:460:17:48

-By tomorrow,

-it'll have worked its way down...

0:17:480:17:51

-..and it'll open quietly.

0:17:510:17:53

-You're driving down this road

-as if it was broad daylight!

0:17:540:17:58

-You know it

-like the back of your hand.

0:17:580:18:01

-Indeed.

0:18:010:18:02

-Here we are.

0:18:050:18:06

-GATE SQUEAKS LOUDLY

0:18:210:18:22

-That's noisy!

0:18:230:18:24

-That's noisy!

-

-Yes, it's awful!

0:18:240:18:25

-Put some oil

-on top of the gate pins.

0:18:250:18:28

-There we are, champion.

0:18:420:18:44

-Excellent.

0:18:440:18:45

-She won't understand

-what's happened!

0:18:460:18:49

-The peace!

0:18:490:18:50

-The peace!

-

-She'll think the gate's gone!

0:18:500:18:52

-It's getting light, Ifan.

0:19:030:19:05

-Yes, it is.

0:19:050:19:06

-Yes, it is.

-

-Every day's a long day for you.

0:19:060:19:08

-Yes.

0:19:080:19:09

-Do you take a break after lunch?

0:19:100:19:12

-Do you take a break after lunch?

-

-No, no.

0:19:120:19:13

-You keep going.

0:19:150:19:16

-You keep going.

-

-Yes, I keep going.

0:19:160:19:17

-How long have you been

-delivering milk?

0:19:300:19:33

-At least eight years.

0:19:330:19:35

-I only started because the milkman

-in the village was giving up.

0:19:360:19:41

-I was wondering

-where I'd get milk myself.

0:19:420:19:45

-What's on top of the list

-after you finish the milk round?

0:19:460:19:52

-A quick breakfast.

0:19:520:19:54

-Oh, thank you, almighty God!

0:19:540:19:58

-Breakfast!

0:19:580:20:00

-Yes, you have to get up early

-to run a rural business...

0:20:020:20:06

-..as Mari Lovgreen

-will discover in Llandeilo.

0:20:070:20:10

-She may be an experienced presenter,

-but farming is fairly new to her.

0:20:100:20:15

-One thing I've noticed

-since moving from town to country...

0:20:200:20:24

-..is how so many farmers' wives

-manage to do everything.

0:20:250:20:29

-I'm meeting Ann Richards...

0:20:290:20:31

-..who farms, owns and runs a shop

-and is also a mother of two.

0:20:320:20:36

-How does she do it?

0:20:370:20:39

-Hello, Ann. How are you?

0:20:410:20:42

-Hello, Ann. How are you?

-

-Fine, thank you.

0:20:420:20:44

-SuperAnn!

0:20:440:20:45

-SuperAnn!

-

-Why's that?

0:20:450:20:46

-I feel that I have

-a lot to learn from you.

0:20:460:20:49

-Good luck!

0:20:490:20:51

-Do you need me to do something?

0:20:520:20:53

-Do you need me to do something?

-

-We've fed the calves. You're late.

0:20:530:20:56

-The sheep need cake.

0:20:570:20:58

-The sheep need cake.

-

-Am I OK like this? Will I get dirty?

0:20:580:21:00

-This is a nice coat.

0:21:000:21:02

-Not for a farmer's wife.

0:21:020:21:04

-Take this one.

0:21:060:21:07

-Wow!

0:21:070:21:08

-I've got to dress her too,

-which I don't do for anyone else.

0:21:150:21:19

-That suits you perfectly.

0:21:200:21:22

-How much farming do you do?

0:21:280:21:31

-I'm from a farming background

-and I've always enjoyed farming.

0:21:320:21:36

-When I came here, I asked my husband

-if he wanted help with the milking.

0:21:360:21:41

-He said no, so I don't do milking.

0:21:410:21:43

-I've reared calves for years

-and I help with the lambing.

0:21:430:21:47

-Otherwise, the shop keeps me busy.

0:21:470:21:49

-It's a happy medium.

0:21:500:21:51

-It's a happy medium.

-

-Come on, girls!

0:21:510:21:52

-Don't be shy!

0:21:530:21:54

-Give it here.

0:21:540:21:55

-Give it here.

-

-The magic touch.

0:21:550:21:56

-I live on a farm, with two children,

-and I feel busy.

0:21:580:22:03

-But you do so much on the farm,

-unlike me, and you run a shop.

0:22:030:22:09

-Where did you get the idea?

0:22:090:22:11

-Siriol was two,

-and I worked for a company...

0:22:110:22:14

-..that made clothes

-for one of the major chains.

0:22:140:22:17

-I happened to get redundancy.

0:22:180:22:20

-The shop in Llandeilo came onto

-the market, and Owen bought it.

0:22:200:22:24

-This is a dangerous shop.

0:22:300:22:32

-It'd be easy to spend here.

0:22:320:22:35

-How do you find time to do all this?

0:22:350:22:37

-The children are getting older,

-so it's easier than 17 years ago.

0:22:370:22:42

-If you enjoy doing something,

-it isn't a burden.

0:22:420:22:46

-I enjoy sewing and socializing.

0:22:460:22:48

-You mentioned sewing, and you

-make all this bunting by hand.

0:22:490:22:54

-Any name, whatever you want,

-and I enjoy making them.

0:22:540:22:58

-Did you know immediately

-what you wanted to sell?

0:22:590:23:02

-No, it's changed over the years.

0:23:020:23:04

-I've gone with what's needed

-in the town.

0:23:040:23:08

-I supply school uniforms now...

0:23:090:23:12

-..and things you can't get

-elsewhere in town.

0:23:130:23:16

-Do you find yourself drawn

-between the farm and the shop?

0:23:170:23:20

-Do you feel

-that you need another Ann?

0:23:210:23:23

-When I go home, I forget about here.

0:23:230:23:26

-I go out into the fresh air,

-talk to the animals...

0:23:260:23:29

-..and they don't answer back!

0:23:300:23:32

-I actually enjoy these books

-a bit too much!

0:23:360:23:39

-Quite a man!

0:23:400:23:41

-Eh? Quite a man!

0:23:410:23:43

-Hours of fun, Rhydian.

0:23:440:23:46

-Hours.

0:23:460:23:47

-What I've taken from today is

-that if a job gives you pleasure...

0:23:520:23:58

-..it immediately eases the burden

-of it being work.

0:23:580:24:03

-Is that true?

0:24:030:24:04

-Is that true?

-

-It's not work if you enjoy it.

0:24:040:24:07

-But you do have to be organized,

-especially with young children.

0:24:070:24:12

-There is no easy way,

-everything goes step by step.

0:24:130:24:18

-You just have to go with it.

0:24:180:24:20

-And the most important tip,

-offer to help on the farm once.

0:24:200:24:25

-If they say no...

0:24:250:24:27

-If they say no...

-

-Don't offer again.

0:24:270:24:28

-I've learnt that.

0:24:280:24:30

-Thanks for the welcome.

0:24:310:24:32

-Mari there, learning quickly.

0:24:370:24:39

-Back in Llanaelhaearn,

-it's a long wait for breakfast...

0:24:400:24:44

-..when it's nine o'clock

-and you've been up since four.

0:24:440:24:48

-The bakery's still going here.

0:24:510:24:53

-It's still run by the same family.

0:24:550:24:58

-Glanrhyd Bakery.

0:24:580:25:01

-Hello!

0:25:010:25:02

-Are you alright?

0:25:020:25:04

-Fine, thanks. How are you?

0:25:040:25:05

-Hello there.

0:25:060:25:07

-How are you?

0:25:070:25:09

-How are you?

-

-Very well, and you?

0:25:090:25:10

-Would you like a pancake?

0:25:100:25:12

-I remember them from years ago.

0:25:120:25:15

-Can I tempt you?

0:25:150:25:16

-I'd better give Ifan one too.

0:25:160:25:19

-Yes, yes.

0:25:190:25:20

-It's hot, Dai.

0:25:210:25:23

-Ifan's so helpful.

0:25:230:25:25

-Would you like some syrup?

0:25:270:25:29

-Syrup? That would be a bonus!

0:25:290:25:31

-Ifan, there's a knife

-on the draining board in the house.

0:25:330:25:37

-Ifan's handy for your business,

-the vans and so on.

0:25:380:25:42

-In so many ways, yes.

0:25:420:25:44

-Me personally, for example.

0:25:440:25:46

-I'm out in the van for an hour

-before I come here every morning.

0:25:460:25:51

-I've had two punctures this year.

0:25:510:25:54

-But all I have to do is phone Ifan.

0:25:550:25:57

-A knife and butter!

0:25:580:26:00

-That's enough butter

-for a chapel tea party!

0:26:000:26:03

-It might be a bit hard.

0:26:050:26:08

-You don't need that much!

0:26:100:26:13

-I don't have much choice!

0:26:130:26:14

-Look at all the butter!

0:26:160:26:18

-We'll have to get the syrup.

0:26:180:26:20

-Ifan must be here often.

-He knows where everything's kept.

0:26:210:26:25

-Anything that needs doing,

-Ifan does it.

0:26:280:26:31

-It's so good to know that.

0:26:310:26:33

-Whatever needs doing, call Ifan.

0:26:340:26:36

-Is it good?

0:26:370:26:38

-It's wonderful.

0:26:380:26:40

-If I wasn't so hungry, I'd share it.

0:26:400:26:44

-Later, we meet a family that starred

-in the series many years ago.

0:27:070:27:13

-These are kiss curls.

0:27:140:27:15

-What did you call them?

0:27:170:27:18

-What did you call them?

-

-Kiss curls.

0:27:180:27:20

-One of Lleyn's true characters.

0:27:220:27:24

-We'll stay in Lleyn now.

0:27:240:27:25

-After delivering

-the milk and the papers...

0:27:260:27:30

-..Ifan Ceiri Garage shares his idea

-of paradise, Llanaelhaearn.

0:27:300:27:34

-This is the old village, is it?

0:27:350:27:37

-This is the old village, is it?

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:27:370:27:39

-Sunshine makes such a difference.

0:27:390:27:41

-Sunshine makes such a difference.

-

-Yes, it's a lovely morning.

0:27:410:27:43

-It makes everything better.

0:27:430:27:45

-It makes everything better.

-

-It's a substantial village.

0:27:450:27:47

-You've been one of those

-who's kept the place going.

0:27:470:27:53

-This community

-is close to your heart.

0:27:530:27:56

-Indeed it is.

0:27:560:27:58

-I'm involved with lots of things.

0:27:580:28:00

-I'm a school governor,

-and the chairman currently.

0:28:010:28:04

-We've fought to keep it open.

0:28:040:28:07

-Hand on heart, you say

-it's the most important thing here.

0:28:070:28:13

-The school, yes.

0:28:140:28:16

-Nothing beats the sound

-of children playing.

0:28:160:28:19

-You'd miss it at lunchtime.

0:28:190:28:21

-The village would be deadly quiet.

0:28:210:28:24

-You can hear them playing

-and having fun.

0:28:240:28:27

-The village's future.

0:28:300:28:31

-The village's future.

-

-Exactly.

0:28:310:28:32

-If only we could remember our days

-on the schoolyard, the mischief.

0:28:330:28:39

-Mischief, yes.

0:28:390:28:41

-Ifan's always at the vanguard

-in protecting the village's future.

0:28:470:28:53

-He also looks after its past,

-as the local funeral director.

0:28:540:29:00

-It came out eventually!

0:29:050:29:06

-It came out eventually!

-

-Polish.

0:29:060:29:07

-There we are.

0:29:110:29:12

-The hearse is going out today,

-so we have to clean it.

0:29:120:29:16

-It has to be clean.

0:29:160:29:17

-There's nothing worse

-than a dirty hearse.

0:29:180:29:20

-If you apply the polish,

-I'll apply the shine.

0:29:210:29:25

-I'll put some blobs here and there.

0:29:260:29:29

-It's as if a gull's got diarrhoea.

0:29:300:29:32

-When did you start doing funerals?

0:29:330:29:35

-When did you start doing funerals?

-

-I'd fancied a hearse for years.

0:29:350:29:39

-I bought one eventually.

0:29:400:29:42

-I used to hire it out

-to different undertakers.

0:29:430:29:48

-Those undertakers

-got old and retired.

0:29:500:29:54

-Someone asked me one day,

-"What will we do now, Ifan?"

0:29:550:30:00

-That's when I got the idea.

0:30:010:30:03

-If no-one's hiring the hearse,

-I'll do the job myself.

0:30:030:30:08

-Something comes out of nothing.

0:30:080:30:11

-Well, yes.

0:30:110:30:12

-You've got a finger in several pies.

0:30:140:30:17

-It's coming up nicely, Ifan.

0:30:180:30:20

-It's coming up nicely, Ifan.

-

-Yes, it's good polish.

0:30:200:30:21

-Is it the polish

-or the man applying it?

0:30:220:30:25

-Maybe it's the man applying it.

0:30:250:30:27

-He seems to be used to the job.

0:30:290:30:31

-Ifan, you'd better go before

-you make a hole in the bonnet.

0:30:340:30:38

-I will have to go now.

0:30:390:30:40

-I will have to go now.

-

-What time is the funeral?

0:30:400:30:42

-Midday.

0:30:420:30:43

-Midday? You'd better go.

0:30:430:30:45

-Yes, the man in the woolly cap

-is an early-rising marvel.

0:30:480:30:53

-Every service he offers

-is done properly.

0:30:560:30:59

-Put simply, he succeeds

-because he has respect...

0:30:590:31:03

-..for his people,

-his work and his community.

0:31:040:31:07

-There we are, the funeral now.

0:31:120:31:15

-Yes, the funeral.

0:31:150:31:16

-You won't be back for a while now.

0:31:170:31:18

-You won't be back for a while now.

-

-No, not for a while.

0:31:180:31:19

-I'll have a word with the staff.

0:31:190:31:22

-There we are.

0:31:220:31:23

-The cap's off.

0:31:240:31:25

-I've seen it at last.

0:31:260:31:27

-The cap comes off to do this job.

0:31:280:31:30

-A mark of respect.

0:31:300:31:32

-True enough.

0:31:320:31:33

-Goodbye.

0:31:360:31:37

-Who better than Ifan

-to pay anyone's last respects?

0:31:390:31:44

-Cefn Gwlad has lost many friends

-over the years.

0:31:440:31:48

-But they're all memorable to me...

0:31:480:31:51

-..among them Mary Pantafon,

-not far from Llanaelhaearn.

0:31:510:31:55

-Hurry up, Huw.

0:31:560:31:57

-Come on.

0:32:000:32:01

-Here's the workshop.

0:32:030:32:04

-Indeed, and here's Huw.

0:32:050:32:06

-How are you today?

0:32:060:32:07

-How are you today?

-

-Not bad.

0:32:070:32:08

-Are you busy?

0:32:090:32:10

-Are you busy?

-

-I'm working.

0:32:100:32:11

-Carpenter Huw, Mary's son...

0:32:110:32:14

-..today makes the coffins

-for Ifan's undertaker business.

0:32:140:32:19

-It's two separate businesses,

-each helping the other.

0:32:200:32:26

-We've worked together

-for a good few years now.

0:32:260:32:30

-I hire Ifan's hearse...

0:32:300:32:33

-..and use his chapel of rest...

0:32:330:32:37

-..and I do this for him.

0:32:370:32:39

-It has changed quite a bit.

0:32:410:32:43

-But there we are,

-everything changes.

0:32:440:32:47

-Hello, how are you?

0:32:500:32:51

-Very well, thank you. And you?

0:32:520:32:54

-Mary Jones, is it?

0:32:540:32:55

-Mary Jones, is it?

-

-Yes.

0:32:550:32:56

-I think it was 1982.

0:32:560:32:58

-I was a youngster then...

0:32:580:33:00

-..in the reeds, bringing the cow in.

0:33:010:33:03

-Tomos the cat was made a fuss of.

0:33:040:33:07

-Is he happy with strangers?

0:33:070:33:09

-Can you hold him?

0:33:100:33:11

-Can you hold him?

-

-Will you take him?

0:33:110:33:12

-No, I don't want him.

0:33:120:33:13

-No, honestly, take him away,

-I'm begging you.

0:33:140:33:17

-The workshop dated back

-to my great-grandfather's time.

0:33:170:33:21

-I'm the fifth generation

-in the same job, as it were.

0:33:210:33:25

-Your brother helps you...

0:33:250:33:27

-Your brother helps you...

-

-Can you see the sign?

0:33:270:33:28

-What?

0:33:290:33:30

-What?

-

-The sign.

0:33:300:33:31

-Oh, no smoking. Sorry, Mary.

0:33:310:33:33

-No-one can smoke in here?

0:33:330:33:34

-No-one can smoke in here?

-

-No, nobody.

0:33:340:33:35

-I've put it out.

0:33:360:33:37

-The family has been here for years.

0:33:370:33:39

-Is Huw the last of the line?

0:33:390:33:41

-Is he like you?

0:33:420:33:43

-Is he like you?

-

-No, he's completely different.

0:33:430:33:45

-Only one was made from this mould.

0:33:450:33:47

-I can believe it, but it's a shame.

0:33:470:33:50

-Maybe Huw might find a woman.

0:33:500:33:52

-It's time he found a piece of skirt.

0:33:520:33:54

-If you say so!

0:33:540:33:56

-I remember it well.

-They spent a few days here.

0:33:570:34:01

-They said they'd be back,

-and Mam had had her hair done!

0:34:010:34:06

-You've had a hair-do!

0:34:090:34:10

-Thank you very much, Mary.

0:34:140:34:15

-Goodbye now.

0:34:160:34:17

-Don't forget to call.

-if you're ever close by.

0:34:170:34:20

-Put the kettle on

-so that we can have a cuppa.

0:34:210:34:25

-They were a nice bunch.

0:34:250:34:26

-They were a nice bunch.

-

-Very affable.

0:34:260:34:27

-Thank God they've gone.

0:34:280:34:30

-Yes, happy memories.

0:34:330:34:35

-We're now off to Llanaelhaearn

-in the evening.

0:34:360:34:41

-It's a chance for Ifan to relax

-after a long day at work.

0:34:410:34:46

-Now then, Ifan, your face tells me

-that this is the night.

0:34:490:34:53

-Every week, Wednesday night

-is a night to relax.

0:34:540:34:57

-Do you have a job with the choir?

0:34:570:35:00

-Do you have a job with the choir?

-

-I'm the secretary.

0:35:000:35:01

-How long have you done that?

0:35:010:35:02

-How long have you done that?

-

-About eight years, probably.

0:35:020:35:06

-They say that singing does you good.

0:35:060:35:10

-A great deal of good.

0:35:100:35:12

-A great deal of good.

-

-Yes, it's very good for you.

0:35:120:35:13

-I must tell you...

0:35:140:35:15

-..you were like grandma's teapot

-sitting among them!

0:35:150:35:19

-The cap very rarely comes off.

0:35:200:35:22

-The cap very rarely comes off.

-

-To go to bed?

0:35:220:35:23

-Oh, yes, it's off then,

-and at funerals.

0:35:230:35:28

-Yes, singing is a balm for the soul.

0:35:300:35:33

-I couldn't leave without joining in.

0:35:330:35:37

-If they're not a member,

-people have no inkling...

0:35:430:35:48

-..of the health benefits of a choir

-and of a night like this.

0:35:480:35:54

-Yes, it is important.

0:35:540:35:56

-But you need time to go every week.

0:35:560:35:59

-Yes, but I've been doing it

-for so long.

0:35:590:36:03

-Wednesday night

-has been set aside for the choir.

0:36:030:36:06

-I'll go home now

-and ask if anyone's phoned.

0:36:070:36:11

-No-one phones on a Wednesday night.

0:36:120:36:14

-They know I'm not free.

0:36:140:36:16

-That was an honour, boys.

0:36:370:36:39

-No, it was.

0:36:400:36:41

-I was running out of puff.

0:36:430:36:46

-I just heard someone say

-that your copy was upside down!

0:36:470:36:50

-He taught me to mime!

-A funeral?

-Oh, good grief...

0:39:360:39:37

-I'll stick to farming, I think.

0:39:380:39:42

-That's also the dream

-of our youngest team member.

0:39:420:39:46

-Elis Morris is a city boy...

0:39:470:39:49

-Elis Morris is a city boy...

-

-Milking!

0:39:490:39:51

-But his heart's set

-on being a farmer.

0:39:510:39:54

-I'm Elis and I live out of Cardiff.

0:39:540:39:57

-I'm Elis and I live out of Cardiff.

-

-Out of Cardiff?

0:39:570:39:58

-As you can see,

-I've got a lot of stock on my farm.

0:39:590:40:02

-I've been saving to buy a farm

-for as long as I can remember.

0:40:030:40:08

-Until then, I help my relatives

-in North Wales...

0:40:100:40:13

-..and learn a few tricks

-about farming.

0:40:140:40:17

-You've both had birthdays recently.

0:40:210:40:24

-Uncle Arwyn and I

-have a present for you.

0:40:250:40:27

-Whoa! They're great!

0:40:330:40:35

-I'll take the black one.

0:40:350:40:36

-I'll take the black one.

-

-OK.

0:40:360:40:37

-I've got a new sheep!

0:40:440:40:46

-Thank you, Uncle Arwyn.

0:40:460:40:48

-What will you call her, Gadran?

0:40:480:40:51

-Um, Glesni Glyn.

0:40:510:40:53

-Um, maybe Martha Morris.

0:40:540:40:57

-They're not so much presents...

0:40:570:41:00

-..more life gifts.

0:41:010:41:04

-We'll dose them and mark them

-and winter them on Anglesey.

0:41:200:41:25

-How long have you farmed Ty'n Coed?

0:41:260:41:29

-Since I left school,

-nearly 40 years ago now.

0:41:300:41:34

-I've got an EM stamp

-to mark the sheep.

0:41:350:41:40

-And Gads has a G stamp.

0:41:470:41:50

-What do we need to do now?

0:41:530:41:55

-We've finished now.

0:41:560:41:57

-They're ready to go to Anglesey.

0:41:570:41:59

-They're ready to go to Anglesey.

-

-Why do they go to Anglesey?

0:41:590:42:01

-There isn't enough grass

-for them here over winter.

0:42:010:42:05

-The grass grows

-all year round in Anglesey.

0:42:060:42:08

-They come back in April

-and go out onto the mountain.

0:42:090:42:12

-You can go up...

0:42:120:42:13

-Oh!

0:42:130:42:14

-Do you want to fetch the dog?

0:42:180:42:20

-Do you want to fetch the dog?

-

-I'll close this. No, it's OK.

0:42:200:42:23

-I've forgotten

-to let the five lambs loose.

0:42:290:42:31

-We need the five lambs.

0:42:320:42:33

-It's nice to see our sheep

-settling in at Ty'n Coed.

0:42:360:42:40

-Yes, with our black stamps on them.

0:42:400:42:44

-That's it for this week.

0:42:440:42:46

-We'll see you next time

-on Cefn Gwlad Bach.

0:42:470:42:49

-See you next time.

0:42:500:42:51

-Elis' big adventure

-lies ahead of him.

0:42:570:43:02

-But reminiscing

-with old friends and family...

0:43:020:43:05

-..is the order of the day

-for Ifan Hughes, Llanaelhaearn.

0:43:060:43:09

-We're in Pencaenewydd.

0:43:100:43:11

-Enjoy yourselves,

-and smile, all of you.

0:43:120:43:17

-Ifan is one of twelve children,

-ten of them still with us.

0:43:190:43:24

-If you count the children

-and grandchildren...

0:43:250:43:29

-..the annual reunion is akin

-to feeding the five thousand.

0:43:290:43:33

-So, you're four brothers here?

0:43:340:43:37

-No, he's a brother-in-law.

0:43:370:43:38

-No, he's a brother-in-law.

-

-I thought there was no likeness.

0:43:380:43:41

-I did think he wasn't a pedigree!

0:43:420:43:45

-What's the age difference?

0:43:470:43:49

-Is Ifan older or younger?

0:43:490:43:51

-Who?

0:43:510:43:52

-Who?

-

-Ifan?

0:43:520:43:53

-Younger. He's the last of the brood!

0:43:530:43:56

-He'll be 65 next January...

0:43:570:44:00

-..and I'm 14 years older than him.

0:44:000:44:04

-You're giving me a sum!

0:44:040:44:05

-You don't have to do the sum.

0:44:060:44:07

-I thought you'd do it for me!

0:44:080:44:10

-The viewers can work it out.

0:44:100:44:12

-Well, fine.

0:44:120:44:14

-I'm with the sisters now.

0:44:150:44:18

-I've been told

-that you're the best talkers.

0:44:190:44:22

-Are you Jane, the eldest sister?

0:44:230:44:24

-Are you Jane, the eldest sister?

-

-I'm the eldest, yes.

0:44:240:44:26

-In that case,

-you remember Ifan all the way.

0:44:270:44:31

-All the way, yes.

0:44:310:44:32

-I remember Dad shouting at me

-on the night Mam went into labour.

0:44:330:44:37

-He told me to get up,

-that Mam wasn't well.

0:44:370:44:40

-And it was Ifan, ready to arrive.

0:44:400:44:43

-Goodness gracious me.

0:44:440:44:46

-You're one of the younger brothers.

0:44:480:44:49

-You're one of the younger brothers.

-

-I'm the eighth on the list.

0:44:490:44:52

-I don't know how he does

-all that he does.

0:44:520:44:55

-I don't think he sleeps a lot.

0:44:550:44:57

-But he sleeps conscientiously.

0:44:580:45:01

-Are you a brother?

0:45:020:45:04

-Are you a brother?

-

-Yes.

0:45:040:45:05

-You've been well-reared!

0:45:050:45:07

-Not unlike you, Dai!

0:45:070:45:08

-We owe a lot to this little chapel

-for giving us a sound foundation.

0:45:100:45:15

-That faith has carried us

-over the years.

0:45:160:45:19

-I like that, a sound foundation.

0:45:190:45:21

-Lillian, you're Ifan's wife,

-so that everyone knows.

0:45:250:45:29

-You must have had a pleasant life.

0:45:290:45:32

-He's a genial character.

0:45:320:45:34

-He's a genial character.

-

-Yes, very pleasant.

0:45:340:45:35

-We've been married

-for over 40 years now.

0:45:360:45:38

-Did you know him

-when you were young?

0:45:390:45:41

-Yes, when I was 18.

0:45:420:45:44

-We got married when I was 21.

0:45:440:45:46

-We got married when I was 21.

-

-How many children?

0:45:460:45:47

-Three.

0:45:470:45:48

-Is this your daughter?

0:45:480:45:50

-How are you?

0:45:500:45:51

-How are you?

-

-Fine, thanks, and you?

0:45:510:45:53

-Which of the three are you?

0:45:530:45:55

-Which of the three are you?

-

-I'm the youngest.

0:45:550:45:56

-I don't know

-where he gets his energy.

0:45:560:45:59

-But he's used to being busy,

-and that keeps him going.

0:45:590:46:02

-The children enjoy

-memorable occasions like this.

0:46:030:46:06

-Don't eat them all. I want one!

0:46:060:46:09

-Ifan, this programme

-has been an experience for me.

0:46:160:46:20

-Seeing people left in this world

-who have come up in the right way...

0:46:220:46:27

-..and who socialize

-with the people they live amongst.

0:46:270:46:31

-You enjoy every second of your life.

0:46:310:46:34

-Yes, every single minute,

-from dawn until darkness.

0:46:340:46:38

-I'm lucky, I've been healthy.

0:46:380:46:42

-The odd cold, but nothing else,

-and everyone catches a cold.

0:46:430:46:47

-Nothing else.

0:46:470:46:48

-The reason you hardly catch a cold

-is that you never take off your cap!

0:46:480:46:54

-I should have taken it off,

-but there we are!

0:46:570:47:00

-Smile now!

0:47:020:47:03

-Smile!

0:47:040:47:05

-Ifan, cap off!

0:47:060:47:07

-The camera's had a shock!
