-"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

-Welcome to Cefn Gwlad.

0:00:220:00:25

-That's what's great

-about the countryside.

0:00:250:00:28

-There's something

-to appeal to everyone.

0:00:280:00:31

-This year, with a crew of helpers...

0:00:310:00:33

-..I can make sure

-that you see everything.

0:00:330:00:36

-Ioan Doyle marvels

-at the inventiveness of rural youth.

0:00:370:00:42

-You're an inventive welder as well.

0:00:430:00:46

-You're an inventive welder as well.

-

-Jack of all trades, master of none.

0:00:460:00:48

-Mari Lovgreen focuses on a craft

-that passes down the generations.

0:00:490:00:54

-You've been busy.

0:00:540:00:56

-This is the same timber

-I used to make the Eisteddfod chair.

0:00:560:01:00

-A service that raises a smile

-as it serves rural villages.

0:01:000:01:04

-Mam's the boss. She's in charge.

0:01:040:01:05

-Mam's the boss. She's in charge.

-

-It's not pulling a pint.

0:01:050:01:07

-And a city boy

-learns about farming's dangers.

0:01:110:01:14

-Cows don't tell us

-when they want to go to the toilet.

0:01:150:01:18

-They just go.

0:01:180:01:19

-They just go.

-

-Thanks for the warning.

0:01:190:01:21

-And I join an annual pilgrimage

-that raises both smiles and money.

0:01:260:01:32

-Well, let me tell you,

-my nose is cold.

0:01:350:01:38

-Do you know where I am?

0:01:390:01:40

-I'm on the Lleyn Peninsula

-to attend the Lleyn Triathlon.

0:01:410:01:45

-The first event

-is clay pigeon shooting.

0:01:450:01:49

-The second event is golf...

0:01:510:01:53

-Shot of the day!

0:01:550:01:56

-And the third is darts

-at Ty Newydd, Sarn Mellteyrn.

0:01:570:02:03

-They haven't hit me yet,

-but I'm not sticking around.

0:02:030:02:07

-Every year since 2004,

-a fortnight before Christmas...

0:02:120:02:16

-..a group of locals

-from Lleyn and Eifionydd...

0:02:170:02:21

-..compete in a triathlon

-to raise money for charity.

0:02:210:02:25

-This time, the competition starts

-at Gwrych y Dryw, Botwnnog...

0:02:250:02:30

-..the home of William Hugh Roberts,

-one of the organizers.

0:02:300:02:34

-Any wait is a long wait.

0:02:350:02:37

-Pull!

0:02:380:02:39

-I hope the people of Botwnnog

-are indoors having lunch!

0:02:430:02:47

-Are you ready?

0:02:470:02:48

-Are you ready?

-

-I'm ready.

0:02:480:02:49

-Here are two cartridges.

0:02:500:02:51

-Two cartridges.

0:02:520:02:53

-When you close the gun...

0:02:580:03:00

-..that's the safety there.

0:03:020:03:04

-When you're ready, that goes on.

0:03:060:03:09

-I'll give it back to you.

0:03:090:03:11

-When you close the gun,

-push that forward when you're ready.

0:03:110:03:15

-And then just pull that?

0:03:150:03:16

-And then just pull that?

-

-Yes, pull that.

0:03:160:03:17

-Put the gun against your shoulder.

0:03:180:03:20

-Close the gun first.

0:03:210:03:22

-Push the safety on.

0:03:230:03:25

-Bring the gun up.

0:03:260:03:28

-When you're ready...

0:03:280:03:30

-I doubt I can get it up far enough.

0:03:310:03:33

-Can I shout now?

0:03:340:03:35

-Can I shout now?

-

-Yes, you can shout.

0:03:350:03:36

-I'll never hold it up.

0:03:390:03:40

-Alright, pull!

0:03:410:03:43

-How did I get drawn into this?!

0:03:510:03:55

-We'll put the gun down.

0:03:560:03:57

-It was another organizer's fault,

-auctioneer John Lloyd Williams.

0:03:580:04:02

-I've seen you

-selling cattle countless times.

0:04:040:04:07

-You can give me my stick back.

0:04:070:04:09

-You're one of the founders

-of this event.

0:04:090:04:12

-I'm one of them, yes.

0:04:120:04:14

-This was back in 2004,

-when the mart at Sarn was closed.

0:04:150:04:19

-The Christmas sale at Sarn

-used to be a big event.

0:04:200:04:24

-Over an amber bottle, we decided

-to arrange an event to fill the gap.

0:04:240:04:29

-One of those there

-asked what we saw in golf.

0:04:300:04:35

-We asked what he saw in shooting.

0:04:360:04:38

-It was a small group at first,

-but it grew and grew...

0:04:380:04:42

-..until it's like this today.

0:04:420:04:45

-John helps to arrange the triathlon

-when he's not busy at Bryncir mart.

0:04:490:04:54

-There's a weekly sale here,

-but it's not a busy time.

0:05:000:05:04

-Is it mainly lambs now?

0:05:050:05:06

-On Wednesdays, it's hoggets,

-cull ewes and barren cows.

0:05:060:05:11

-There's a fair turnout today,

-considering the time of year.

0:05:110:05:15

-A lot of the local farms

-have scanned their ewes now.

0:05:150:05:19

-It's a hard winter,

-and pasture is at a premium.

0:05:190:05:22

-They won't hold onto them.

0:05:220:05:24

-They won't hold onto them.

-

-It's great that this mart is open.

0:05:240:05:26

-The marts at Dolgellau and Anglesey

-are a distance away.

0:05:270:05:31

-We're between the two...

0:05:310:05:34

-..drawing trade from Lleyn,

-Arfon, Eifionydd and Meirionnydd.

0:05:340:05:39

-It's a large area.

0:05:400:05:41

-But you also bring people together.

0:05:410:05:44

-Farmers are full of praise

-because a mart does that.

0:05:440:05:48

-Yes, a mart is vital.

0:05:480:05:50

-It ultimately stabilizes prices,

-however you look at it.

0:05:500:05:54

-Yes, it's convenient

-to sell directly from the farm...

0:05:540:05:58

-..but it has its downsides,

-because the mart stabilizes prices.

0:05:590:06:03

-Yes, offering a service

-to local people is important.

0:06:050:06:09

-If they don't come to you,

-then you can always go to them...

0:06:100:06:14

-..like Ann and Alun

-from Clunderwen.

0:06:140:06:17

-I'm Ann, aka Ann Fach.

0:06:170:06:19

-This is Alun, my son,

-and we run the local chip van.

0:06:190:06:23

-We started last October.

0:06:270:06:30

-The middle of winter,

-a bad time for a fish van.

0:06:300:06:34

-Alun set up a Facebook page,

-but I don't understand computers...

0:06:340:06:39

-..and word of mouth, really.

0:06:390:06:41

-This is our till, 21st century.

0:06:450:06:47

-Two tenners and loose change.

0:06:480:06:51

-We won't need change

-for a 50 note in Maenclochog...

0:06:520:06:55

-..because they've never seen one.

0:06:550:06:57

-We go to Clunderwen on Tuesdays,

-where they like battered sausages.

0:06:590:07:03

-They're popular in Clunderwen.

0:07:040:07:06

-Llanboidy, the odd chicken,

-a few sausages.

0:07:060:07:10

-But Maenclochog's a fish mart,

-they are fishy people.

0:07:100:07:14

-We don't want to upset anyone,

-so we go to rural villages.

0:07:220:07:26

-We don't want to be competition,

-we just want a bit of fun.

0:07:280:07:32

-Keep going.

0:07:320:07:34

-And keep everyone happy.

0:07:340:07:37

-Mam's the boss.

0:07:410:07:42

-I'm Robin to her Batman.

0:07:420:07:44

-I'm Robin to her Batman.

-

-God!

0:07:440:07:45

-She's my mother

-but she's my best friend as well.

0:07:470:07:51

-She's clean off,

-as we say around here.

0:07:510:07:55

-I take the orders and the money

-and I make the curry sauce.

0:07:560:08:00

-Everything else, it's Mam.

0:08:000:08:02

-I do help with the chips sometimes.

0:08:020:08:03

-I do help with the chips sometimes.

-

-Alun's a good boy.

0:08:030:08:05

-He lost his father

-when he was ten months.

0:08:060:08:08

-It's just been us, best friends.

0:08:080:08:11

-We mess about.

0:08:110:08:13

-We're more like brother

-and sister sometimes.

0:08:130:08:16

-Ready to go.

0:08:220:08:23

-Mam's the boss.

0:08:230:08:24

-I know that.

0:08:250:08:25

-I know that.

-

-He rushes me sometimes.

0:08:250:08:27

-He needs to slow down,

-not do everything at once.

0:08:270:08:30

-One chicken, chips and curry sauce.

0:08:310:08:34

-One fish and chips

-and one chicken and chips for 7.15.

0:08:340:08:38

-Mam's the boss, she's in charge.

0:08:380:08:39

-Mam's the boss, she's in charge.

-

-It's not pulling a pint.

0:08:390:08:41

-If you've got four fish,

-you need four chips ready.

0:08:430:08:48

-How do you know

-you'll have four portions...

0:08:490:08:51

-..when the fish isn't ready yet?

0:08:520:08:54

-I know all that now.

0:08:540:08:56

-She's in charge. If the chips

-aren't ready, they go back in.

0:09:010:09:04

-They need a crunch.

0:09:050:09:06

-They need a crunch.

-

-Yes.

0:09:060:09:07

-Jumbo sausage and chips, please.

0:09:080:09:11

-I enjoy feeding people.

0:09:110:09:13

-They get a free sausage for a dog.

0:09:130:09:16

-But one bloke in Maenclochog,

-I'm sure he doesn't have a dog.

0:09:160:09:20

-I'm sure he doesn't.

0:09:200:09:22

-How are you, Alun?

0:09:260:09:27

-How are you, Alun?

-

-Good, thank you, and yourself?

0:09:270:09:29

-He did once say

-that he'd marry my daughter.

0:09:290:09:33

-At Ysgol Brynconin.

0:09:330:09:35

-He had a big crush on Enfys.

0:09:360:09:39

-It was quite funny!

0:09:390:09:41

-It's not the job she enjoys,

-it's the chat and the characters.

0:09:420:09:46

-If she didn't enjoy it,

-she'd do something else.

0:09:470:09:50

-But she enjoys what she does

-and the area where she works.

0:09:500:09:54

-I enjoy seeing people...

0:09:560:09:59

-..and keeping in touch with people.

0:10:000:10:02

-People you grew up with,

-were at school with.

0:10:020:10:05

-Pubs have gone quiet,

-a lot have closed.

0:10:060:10:09

-You don't see people.

0:10:090:10:11

-I just enjoy having a good laugh...

0:10:110:10:15

-..messing about, and it's great.

0:10:150:10:18

-..messing about, and it's great.

-

-That'll be 5.50, please.

0:10:180:10:20

-It is quite old-fashioned.

0:10:200:10:23

-I stayed with a friend in Cardiff

-and he ordered pizza on an app.

0:10:230:10:29

-In 20 minutes, it was there.

0:10:290:10:31

-I don't like that.

0:10:310:10:32

-It's better to go out and have

-a chat, the old-fashioned way.

0:10:320:10:36

-Here you are, Margaret.

0:10:370:10:38

-As long as it pays,

-I'll keep going as long as I can...

0:10:390:10:43

-..until someone says no go.

0:10:430:10:45

-It'll be a sad day

-if I have to stop.

0:10:460:10:51

-If you're in the area,

-Llanboidy, Clunderwen...

0:10:510:10:54

-Maenclochog...

0:10:550:10:56

-Maenclochog...

-

-..call.

0:10:560:10:57

-It'll be nice to see you.

0:10:570:10:58

-It'll be nice to see you.

-

-Tuesdays to Thursdays.

0:10:580:10:59

-See you there.

0:11:000:11:01

-See you there.

-

-Bye now. Last stop, the Globe.

0:11:010:11:03

-How's that for rural characters?

0:11:060:11:09

-Back at the Lleyn Triathlon,

-things are getting worse for me.

0:11:090:11:13

-It's the competition proper now.

0:11:140:11:17

-Get a gun. You're on our team.

0:11:190:11:21

-Get away.

0:11:210:11:22

-Get away.

-

-That's you there.

0:11:220:11:23

-Dai Jones.

0:11:240:11:25

-I'm not a shooter.

0:11:280:11:29

-I'm not a shooter.

-

-Neither am I!

0:11:290:11:30

-Eifion, Dai Jones

-and Iwan Llanllawen.

0:11:310:11:34

-Will this do, Dai?

0:11:360:11:37

-Is this an up and under?

0:11:410:11:43

-Is this an up and under?

-

-Yes.

0:11:430:11:44

-Right, on there.

0:11:450:11:46

-Guns open, no cartridges loaded.

0:11:470:11:50

-Pull!

0:11:530:11:54

-The stock's a bit shorter.

0:11:570:11:58

-Push the safety forward.

0:11:590:12:01

-There we are,

-and follow the clay through.

0:12:030:12:07

-Pull!

0:12:080:12:09

-There we are.

0:12:110:12:13

-Those were safe!

0:12:140:12:15

-They'll fly again!

0:12:170:12:18

-You have to shoot at ten, in all.

0:12:230:12:25

-Two down, eight to go.

0:12:260:12:27

-Two down, eight to go.

-

-I won't have any arms left!

0:12:270:12:29

-I couldn't hold it,

-but I do have a thick coat.

0:12:300:12:33

-I couldn't lift the gun up

-high enough.

0:12:330:12:35

-Mind you, I've never shot.

0:12:360:12:37

-Ten! I won't have any arms left!

-Later, Ioan Doyle marvels

-at the inventiveness of youth.

0:12:590:13:05

-It comes out tidily, doesn't it?

0:13:060:13:08

-This is some machine.

0:13:090:13:10

-Back at the first leg

-of the Lleyn Triathlon...

0:13:170:13:20

-..the organizers have sought help

-for me before I compete proper.

0:13:210:13:25

-Come up to this peg.

0:13:260:13:28

-Come up to this peg.

-

-Can anyone take my place?

0:13:280:13:30

-Try that gun.

0:13:310:13:32

-It's lighter and shorter.

0:13:320:13:35

-Dafydd Roberts has been roped in

-to face the huge challenge...

0:13:390:13:43

-..of turning me into a marksman.

0:13:440:13:47

-Is that better?

0:13:470:13:48

-Close the gun and keep the safety on

-until you're ready to fire.

0:13:490:13:55

-There are two triggers.

0:13:550:13:57

-When you're ready then.

0:13:570:13:59

-Pull!

0:14:010:14:02

-Right, open the gun.

0:14:050:14:07

-We'll put another one in there.

0:14:090:14:11

-When you're ready.

0:14:140:14:15

-Pull!

0:14:190:14:20

-We'll open the gun now.

0:14:230:14:25

-There we are.

0:14:270:14:28

-Good.

0:14:280:14:29

-There's still hope.

0:14:300:14:32

-My teammates are all smiling.

0:14:330:14:35

-Poor Dafydd was just glad

-that everyone was safe.

0:14:360:14:39

-Dafydd is a successful businessman.

0:14:390:14:42

-His company, Brodwaith, employs 24

-at Llangefni and Pentrefoelas.

0:14:430:14:48

-My roots are in farming...

0:14:490:14:52

-..but when I was at Harper Adams,

-I spent a year out...

0:14:520:14:56

-..on a 12,000-acre farm

-in Nottingham.

0:14:560:15:02

-They grew crops, carrots,

-potatoes, leeks and broccoli.

0:15:020:15:07

-That's where my interest

-in the business side developed.

0:15:080:15:11

-I decided

-that whatever the product...

0:15:120:15:14

-..if you were interested in it,

-and ready to learn...

0:15:150:15:18

-..you could venture into that field.

0:15:190:15:21

-It's a matter of teamwork,

-and everyone provides input.

0:15:220:15:26

-Any problems come back

-to me and Menna.

0:15:260:15:30

-We're lucky of the team we have.

0:15:310:15:34

-Didn't your mother

-work in this field?

0:15:340:15:38

-She started the business

-26 years ago now.

0:15:380:15:42

-It was a hobby,

-a way to make some money.

0:15:420:15:46

-The business grew

-without her really trying.

0:15:470:15:51

-When it reached a certain point...

0:15:510:15:54

-..it had to be viewed as a business

-for it to develop.

0:15:540:15:58

-One of the latest products

-is an original idea by Dafydd.

0:15:590:16:05

-A support belt for pregnant women.

0:16:050:16:07

-Six years ago,

-when my wife was pregnant...

0:16:090:16:12

-..she suffered

-from severe pelvic girdle pain.

0:16:120:16:17

-I developed a product

-to try to help ease her pain.

0:16:170:16:22

-There was nothing on the market.

0:16:220:16:24

-It's just come through trials

-with the health board, favourably.

0:16:250:16:29

-The idea is that this belt...

0:16:300:16:33

-..provides support

-for the weight of the baby.

0:16:330:16:39

-In the case of pain

-in the groin area...

0:16:390:16:43

-..we added this second belt

-to provide additional support.

0:16:430:16:47

-But that didn't prevent the pelvis

-from becoming distorted.

0:16:470:16:52

-To get over that,

-we covered the back.

0:16:520:16:56

-This third belt then closes...

0:16:560:16:59

-..and provides full support

-for the pelvis.

0:16:590:17:04

-It squeezes the pelvis

-into place, in a way.

0:17:040:17:07

-I can't say I'd buy one...

0:17:080:17:09

-..but could I try that thing

-that changes your shape?

0:17:100:17:13

-I can try it because it's designed

-to support the belly.

0:17:130:17:17

-We're on the same page!

0:17:170:17:19

-Excellent. Very nice.

0:17:200:17:21

-What an invention.

0:17:220:17:23

-Inventiveness

-is a recurring theme...

0:17:240:17:26

-..as Ioan meets an inventor

-who's pushing the boundaries.

0:17:270:17:32

-I've come here

-to the Banwy valley...

0:17:370:17:41

-..to meet Eifion Jones...

0:17:420:17:43

-..who has invented a machine

-that has piqued my interest.

0:17:440:17:47

-By the end of the day,

-I might well have bought one.

0:17:480:17:51

-Off I go.

0:17:510:17:52

-How are you, Eifion?

0:18:030:18:05

-What are you doing here?

0:18:050:18:07

-I'm trying to lay a hedge.

0:18:070:18:09

-How did you start?

0:18:090:18:10

-It's in the blood.

0:18:110:18:12

-Taid was a fine hedge layer.

0:18:120:18:15

-He's laid most of the hedges

-in this area some time.

0:18:150:18:19

-In the run-up to ploughing,

-all he did was lay hedges.

0:18:190:18:22

-It must be in the blood.

0:18:220:18:25

-I can see you working,

-and you don't cut through.

0:18:250:18:30

-Leave it attached

-and bend the branch.

0:18:300:18:33

-Where it has split,

-new growth should emerge.

0:18:330:18:37

-This stump here will also grow...

0:18:370:18:39

-..and it'll strengthen

-and support the hedge.

0:18:400:18:43

-It makes it a lot easier,

-and lightens the load on the posts.

0:18:430:18:47

-Growth will also emerge from it.

0:18:480:18:49

-Growth will also emerge from it.

-

-You also put posts in the hedge.

0:18:490:18:51

-Yes, at an opposing angle

-to the direction of the hedge.

0:18:520:18:56

-It supports it

-and provides added strength.

0:18:560:18:59

-You're an inventive welder as well.

0:19:120:19:15

-Jack of all trades, master of none.

0:19:150:19:19

-I do a bit, yes.

0:19:190:19:20

-I have my own welding business.

0:19:210:19:23

-I do a bit of everything,

-to be honest.

0:19:240:19:28

-Feeders, shed doors, gates.

0:19:280:19:33

-What sets your work apart

-is the blue colour.

0:19:340:19:37

-I started with the Easy Fencer

-and that was painted blue.

0:19:370:19:40

-I then made a blue log splitter,

-because I had a bit of paint left.

0:19:410:19:46

-It's stuck, to be honest.

0:19:460:19:49

-Everyone knows now,

-if it's from Blowty, it's blue!

0:19:490:19:53

-What really interests me,

-as a fencing contractor...

0:19:530:19:59

-..is the Easy Fencer you invented.

0:19:590:20:02

-I did that at school

-as an AS level project.

0:20:020:20:05

-Everyone else

-did coffee tables and so on.

0:20:050:20:08

-Each to his own,

-so I decided to make a machine.

0:20:090:20:13

-Will fencing be quicker

-than laying a hedge?

0:20:130:20:17

-We'll do quite a few more metres

-in a day fencing than laying.

0:20:180:20:22

-Can we go up to have a look?

0:20:220:20:23

-Can we go up to have a look?

-

-Yes, we'll go now.

0:20:230:20:24

-It comes out tidily, doesn't it?

0:20:330:20:35

-Well, Eifion, this is some machine.

0:20:410:20:44

-It makes life a lot easier.

0:20:450:20:47

-What I like best

-is that it gathers the old netting.

0:20:480:20:51

-If we gathered this back...

0:20:510:20:53

-..it would gather it as tightly

-as a new roll, within an inch.

0:20:540:20:58

-On the other side

-is the barbed wire.

0:20:590:21:02

-Anyone who has done any fencing

-knows how much of a pain it can be.

0:21:020:21:07

-I designed that to open

-at the top and base of the fence.

0:21:070:21:12

-We always put one at the top

-and one at the base.

0:21:120:21:15

-It worked for us.

0:21:150:21:16

-Another thing we did...

0:21:170:21:18

-..if you've ever unrolled barbed

-wire with a crowbar or the like...

0:21:190:21:23

-..it gets stuck, then turns

-a few times of its own accord.

0:21:240:21:28

-I've added a plate and a spring

-to put pressure on the roll.

0:21:280:21:33

-It won't unroll any more

-if there's no pressure applied.

0:21:340:21:39

-What's also remarkable

-is that the mark one worked.

0:21:390:21:43

-You can take it out and it works.

0:21:430:21:46

-That was pure luck, actually.

0:21:460:21:50

-I lost a few nights' sleep...

0:21:500:21:54

-..while I was making it

-in the workshop.

0:21:540:21:57

-I've taken the welder

-back to it a few times.

0:21:570:22:00

-But when you use it, click,

-something else might be handy.

0:22:000:22:06

-You try new things.

0:22:060:22:08

-That's what I like

-about the business.

0:22:090:22:11

-You never stop,

-there are always new ideas.

0:22:110:22:14

-As you say, the more you use it,

-the more improvements come to you.

0:22:150:22:19

-No, it's incredible

-and I can't wait to have a go on it.

0:22:200:22:25

-Especially the barbed wire.

0:22:250:22:27

-Especially the barbed wire.

-

-I hope you like it.

0:22:270:22:29

-Good luck to Eifion

-and his invention.

0:22:330:22:35

-Hopefully, Ioan's pockets

-will be deep enough.

0:22:360:22:39

-Well, the shooting's

-drawing to a close.

0:22:410:22:43

-Some of the lads have arrived

-at Abersoch golf club.

0:22:440:22:48

-It's time for some golf.

0:22:490:22:50

-I doubt the holes

-are big enough for me...

0:22:500:22:53

-..and there's no sign of a JCB.

0:22:530:22:55

-Even so,

-I'll have to give it a go.

0:22:570:23:00

-One of the first on the course

-is John Huw...

0:23:000:23:04

-..John Lloyd's partner

-at Bryncir mart.

0:23:040:23:07

-We try to put one golfer

-in each team.

0:23:080:23:11

-Tomos Arthur here plays,

-he's a member.

0:23:120:23:15

-Are these men

-who play three times a week?

0:23:150:23:18

-Three of us are members here.

0:23:190:23:20

-Three of us are members here.

-

-He's the best player.

0:23:200:23:21

-He has nothing else to do.

0:23:220:23:23

-He has the best handicap.

0:23:240:23:25

-How can he be the best

-when he has a handicap?

0:23:260:23:28

-He has nothing else to do.

0:23:290:23:30

-Well done.

0:23:320:23:33

-I've got to be back home

-to do the milking at four.

0:23:370:23:40

-Come on then, lads.

0:23:410:23:42

-We'll see you after the break!

0:23:580:24:00

-Shall I hold your stick, Dai?

0:24:050:24:07

-Yes, please.

0:24:070:24:08

-Excellent. Thanks, Dylan.

0:24:090:24:10

-It's a fast one. Keep up with it.

0:24:110:24:13

-I was on the team,

-so I daren't let anyone down.

0:24:160:24:21

-On the tee, it's me.

0:24:220:24:23

-Keep the ball in the middle.

0:24:280:24:30

-Between my legs?

0:24:310:24:32

-You'll have to move back.

0:24:340:24:35

-Move back!

0:24:350:24:36

-Swing back, like a clock.

0:24:390:24:41

-Fire away!

0:24:420:24:43

-Move the hole!

0:24:460:24:47

-Shot!

0:24:550:24:56

-Shot of the day!

0:24:560:24:57

-How long did it take you to learn?

0:24:590:25:02

-I've been playing golf

-for about 20 years.

0:25:020:25:07

-I'm not that old yet!

0:25:070:25:08

-It takes hold of you.

0:25:080:25:11

-It takes hold of you.

-

-I'd prefer this to fishing.

0:25:110:25:13

-I'm a farmer

-and I've no interest in sport.

0:25:140:25:17

-But I think I could take to golf.

0:25:170:25:20

-This one looks like Clark Gable.

0:25:240:25:27

-Watch that bloke's windows!

0:25:300:25:32

-Where are you from?

0:25:390:25:40

-Where are you from?

-

-Cerrigydrudion.

0:25:400:25:42

-All the way here to play?

-And what's your handicap?

0:25:430:25:46

-I have no idea.

0:25:480:25:49

-I have no idea.

-

-Don't laugh, you lot!

0:25:490:25:50

-I'll be with you now!

0:25:500:25:52

-Everyone back.

0:25:570:25:58

-Don't lose it. I'm short of balls.

0:25:580:26:01

-The Almighty was also on my team.

0:26:070:26:10

-Oh, I'm quite a player.

-Still to come, from the archive,

-a family craft that survives today.

0:26:340:26:39

-How long has your family

-been carpenters?

0:26:400:26:44

-For about four generations.

0:26:440:26:47

-Meanwhile, in the second leg

-of the Lleyn Triathlon...

0:26:510:26:55

-..at Abersoch golf club...

0:26:550:26:57

-..the competition hots up

-as the teams aim for good scores.

0:26:580:27:03

-It's good to see so many

-young people joining in the fun.

0:27:060:27:10

-Among them

-is Lleyn farmer Dafydd Williams.

0:27:110:27:15

-Have you had a good day?

0:27:180:27:20

-You did well in the shooting.

0:27:200:27:22

-Yes, but it's downhill now!

0:27:220:27:24

-I don't know. How's the golf going?

0:27:240:27:26

-I don't know. How's the golf going?

-

-Not bad.

0:27:260:27:27

-When we get to the darts,

-you'll be in your element.

0:27:280:27:32

-It depends how much drink is taken!

0:27:320:27:34

-Dafydd's home

-is about 30 minutes from Abersoch...

0:27:400:27:45

-..above Aberdaron's rocks

-and wild waves.

0:27:460:27:50

-His family has farmed Gwythrian

-for generations...

0:27:520:27:56

-..and always keep the place

-in a fine condition.

0:27:570:28:00

-When I saw Dafydd

-at the Triathlon...

0:28:000:28:03

-..I wondered where he found

-the time or the interest.

0:28:040:28:08

-When they were small,

-farming was everything.

0:28:090:28:12

-But they like

-to have a good time too.

0:28:120:28:15

-But I thought I'd visit the farm...

0:28:150:28:18

-..because there's always

-something new here.

0:28:180:28:21

-It's working well, Dafydd.

0:28:330:28:34

-It's working well, Dafydd.

-

-Yes, not bad.

0:28:340:28:36

-Is this new this year?

0:28:370:28:38

-The shed? Yes.

0:28:380:28:39

-We've got some small pens to do,

-then it'll be finished.

0:28:390:28:43

-How many ewes will lamb here?

0:28:430:28:45

-About 800.

0:28:450:28:47

-You're sticking to the blackface.

0:28:470:28:50

-Yes, three-quarters of them,

-with some Mules and Texels.

0:28:500:28:54

-You clearly prefer those.

0:28:540:28:56

-They produce more lambs,

-and bigger lambs.

0:28:560:29:00

-They also lamb a bit earlier.

0:29:000:29:02

-They also lamb a bit earlier.

-

-You're about to start lambing.

0:29:020:29:04

-Yes, through until late March...

0:29:050:29:09

-..then we'll start calving.

0:29:090:29:12

-But you'll have sold most of the

-lambs by the beginning of summer.

0:29:120:29:17

-Three-quarters of them,

-hopefully, by June.

0:29:180:29:21

-I always love coming to Aberdaron.

0:29:220:29:25

-You're at the end of the world,

-beyond everyone's reach.

0:29:250:29:29

-That's a problem sometimes!

0:29:290:29:31

-True enough, but not when it comes

-to raising money for charity...

0:29:360:29:41

-..according to another of the

-event's organizers, Robert Parry.

0:29:410:29:46

-I don't play golf often,

-once a week or once a fortnight.

0:29:470:29:53

-It's a good walk,

-in a bracing wind...

0:29:530:29:56

-..trying to beat the course

-and your fellow players.

0:29:560:30:00

-There's great camaraderie

-after a game.

0:30:000:30:04

-Everyone has shared the experience.

0:30:050:30:07

-Just down the road...

0:30:120:30:14

-..Robert runs a machinery dealership

-in Aberdesach.

0:30:140:30:18

-Robert Parry,

-you've got enough machines.

0:30:230:30:26

-It sometimes feels as if I collect

-them rather than sell them!

0:30:260:30:30

-You're in a good location to sell.

0:30:310:30:33

-It's fairly central yes.

0:30:330:30:35

-What area do you cover?

0:30:350:30:37

-Anywhere I get a deal, Dai Jones!

0:30:380:30:40

-We try to look after

-three different sectors.

0:30:410:30:47

-Agriculture and construction,

-with these machines...

0:30:470:30:52

-..and farming, construction

-and leisure with these vehicles.

0:30:520:30:56

-You're also one of the founders...

0:30:570:31:01

-..and organizers of the Triathlon.

0:31:020:31:03

-..and organizers of the Triathlon.

-

-One of the original crew, yes.

0:31:030:31:06

-It's not a big deal.

0:31:060:31:08

-It takes place every December

-and people look forward to it.

0:31:080:31:12

-We'll see people who we might

-not have seen for a year.

0:31:120:31:16

-They come from far and wide.

0:31:160:31:18

-Yes, people make a community,

-and communities really benefit...

0:31:180:31:23

-..when rural businesses pass down

-from generation to generation.

0:31:230:31:27

-Mari Lovgreen visits

-one such business in Ysbyty Ifan.

0:31:290:31:34

-One trait of the countryside...

0:31:530:31:56

-..is the way that skills

-are passed down the generations.

0:31:560:31:59

-Twenty years ago, a joiner

-from here appeared on Cefn Gwlad.

0:32:000:32:05

-Now, his son continues the family

-tradition in the same workshop.

0:32:050:32:10

-Mr Huw Selwyn Owen's workshop

-is made entirely of zinc...

0:32:150:32:20

-..which has now rusted.

0:32:200:32:23

-If you go inside, you'll see

-lots of sawdust on the floor.

0:32:230:32:27

-Hello there.

0:32:280:32:29

-Hello there.

-

-Hello.

0:32:290:32:30

-How are you?

0:32:310:32:32

-How are you?

-

-Fine. How are you?

0:32:320:32:33

-It's a lovely day. Exceptional.

0:32:330:32:35

-It's a lovely day. Exceptional.

-

-I'd heard you were on the way.

0:32:350:32:37

-Had you?

0:32:370:32:38

-I've been around the village.

0:32:380:32:40

-Are you busy?

0:32:400:32:41

-Are you busy?

-

-There's plenty to do, yes.

0:32:410:32:43

-Hello, Rhodri. How are you?

0:32:470:32:49

-Hello, Rhodri. How are you?

-

-Mari, it's been a long time.

0:32:490:32:51

-I'm fine.

0:32:510:32:52

-I'm fine.

-

-This is a lovely place.

0:32:520:32:53

-It's not bad, is it?

0:32:540:32:55

-How long has your family

-been carpenters?

0:32:550:32:58

-For about four generations.

0:32:580:33:02

-Originally, my grandfather

-and my great-grandfather, I think...

0:33:020:33:08

-..were wheelwrights here,

-making cartwheels and so on.

0:33:080:33:12

-I remember a sign in the window

-when I was a boy.

0:33:120:33:15

-Griffith Owen, wheelwright.

0:33:150:33:18

-My father was born into it.

0:33:180:33:20

-He always seemed to have

-a chisel or a saw in his hand.

0:33:210:33:25

-Your job was village carpenter.

0:33:260:33:29

-He died when I was 16 years old,

-and I only started seven years ago.

0:33:290:33:34

-It's nice that the tradition

-continues in these buildings...

0:33:340:33:39

-..and in Ysbyty Ifan,

-which is so dear to you.

0:33:390:33:42

-Yes, of course it is.

0:33:430:33:45

-I was born here.

0:33:450:33:46

-I worked away

-and didn't see myself coming back.

0:33:470:33:52

-But a part of me

-might always have wanted to return.

0:33:520:33:56

-Can we see the old workshop?

0:33:560:33:57

-Can we see the old workshop?

-

-Of course.

0:33:570:33:58

-Wow!

0:34:060:34:07

-If this place could talk!

0:34:070:34:09

-You still use a lot of tools

-that your great-grandfather used.

0:34:120:34:17

-A lot of them are still here.

0:34:170:34:21

-There are two saws and old planes

-bearing Griffith Owen's stamp.

0:34:210:34:26

-Old tools, especially old saws,

-work well if you keep them sharp.

0:34:270:34:33

-Some things need a good clean.

0:34:340:34:37

-It's a bit cold and damp

-all year round.

0:34:370:34:40

-Have you cleaned? I can't tell.

0:34:400:34:42

-Have you cleaned? I can't tell.

-

-I have, actually.

0:34:420:34:43

-What keeps you busiest?

0:34:460:34:48

-I mostly make furniture, really.

0:34:480:34:51

-People order tables, cupboards,

-shelves and so on.

0:34:510:34:55

-I design and make

-what I think they want.

0:34:560:34:59

-What's going on now, Huw?

0:35:040:35:06

-I've been making a few chairs.

0:35:060:35:08

-Small ones.

0:35:090:35:11

-You made the chair

-for the Llanrwst Eisteddfod.

0:35:110:35:15

-Yes, that's right.

0:35:150:35:16

-That's for

-the Aberystwyth Eisteddfod.

0:35:160:35:19

-It needs to be a good one

-for the Cardis!

0:35:190:35:22

-Yes, they demand quality.

0:35:220:35:23

-They don't sit often,

-but they need a good chair!

0:35:240:35:26

-I try to use native wood when I can.

0:35:280:35:31

-Is that what this is?

-You've been busy.

0:35:310:35:34

-This is a desk made of ash.

0:35:350:35:37

-Those trees grew

-at Yr Ysgwrn in Trawsfynydd.

0:35:370:35:41

-This is the same timber

-I used to make the chair...

0:35:420:35:46

-..for the 2017 Anglesey Eisteddfod.

0:35:460:35:49

-That was some commission for you.

0:35:490:35:52

-They wanted the chair

-to convey some major themes.

0:35:520:35:56

-The most important theme,

-and the one I liked most...

0:35:560:36:00

-..was to mark the centenary

-of Hedd Wyn and the Black Chair...

0:36:000:36:06

-..and to note that we Welsh

-maybe tend to look back a lot...

0:36:060:36:10

-..and that it might be time

-for us to start to look ahead...

0:36:100:36:14

-..to a confident future

-for us as a nation.

0:36:140:36:17

-To cap it all,

-a good friend of yours won it.

0:36:170:36:21

-I was so glad

-that Osian Rhys Jones won it.

0:36:210:36:24

-I was at university with him.

0:36:240:36:26

-It was a pleasure

-to see him stand in the pavilion.

0:36:270:36:30

-Cefn Gwlad has filmed here before.

0:36:300:36:33

-I couldn't help noticing

-someone's phone number...

0:36:330:36:37

-..still up on the wall

-20 years later!

0:36:370:36:40

-It's over 20 years, probably.

0:36:400:36:42

-I haven't moved anything.

0:36:430:36:44

-Dai's number is still on the wall.

0:36:450:36:47

-Do you get a chance to write poetry?

0:36:470:36:50

-What was the last thing you wrote?

0:36:500:36:53

-An englyn to you.

0:36:530:36:55

-As you're a Cardi,

-you don't have to pay for it.

0:36:550:36:59

-Thank goodness.

0:36:590:37:00

-"The only Dai Llanilar

0:37:020:37:05

-"A short chap, even so, unassuming.

0:37:050:37:09

-"When seen either on the screen

0:37:090:37:11

-"Or on stage, he's quite a star!"

0:37:120:37:14

-You can keep that!

0:37:140:37:15

-You can keep that!

-

-Thank you very much.

0:37:150:37:18

-An englyn by Huw Sel.

0:37:180:37:20

-I might call again

-before I go home.

0:37:220:37:24

-If you need any help, shout.

0:37:250:37:26

-You never know

-when you'll need to call Dai Jones.

0:37:300:37:34

-That's why it's still up.

0:37:340:37:36

-Have you got a pen and paper for me?

0:37:360:37:38

-Have you got a pen and paper for me?

-

-I must have, in this mess somewhere.

0:37:380:37:40

-To leave my name and number?

0:37:400:37:42

-Who knows who'll be here

-in another 20 years?

0:37:420:37:45

-Because you're busy

-keeping the tradition alive.

0:37:450:37:49

-I'm trying my best.

0:37:490:37:50

-Good luck to Rhodri

-as he carries on that tradition.

0:37:540:37:59

-Back at the Lleyn Triathlon,

-the golf leg is drawing to a close.

0:38:010:38:06

-Before the last event,

-the darts competition...

0:38:060:38:10

-..it's time to announce

-the results so far.

0:38:100:38:13

-John Huw's team,

-Dafydd Gwythrian and Eifion...

0:38:130:38:17

-..and Dai, of course, 67.

0:38:170:38:19

-Tanrallt B,

-Tomos, Daniel and William, 57.

0:38:210:38:26

-It's a tradition for any winner

-in any section to come forward.

0:38:260:38:32

-Dafydd, Abner, Dafydd Gwythrian...

0:38:320:38:36

-..Ieu, Elis Bodwi,

-Dafydd Hafod y Dre, Ed and Prys.

0:38:360:38:42

-Please come forward.

0:38:420:38:43

-They all scored 20 out of 20

-in the shooting, so down the hatch!

0:38:450:38:50

-I can tell you,

-I'm so glad I didn't shoot well!

-Later, the wannabe farmer

-shows that he's a fast learner.

0:39:250:39:29

-This is difficult work.

0:39:310:39:32

-This is difficult work.

-

-But it's fun as well.

0:39:320:39:34

-But first, the Lleyn Triathlon

-draws to a close for another year.

0:39:420:39:47

-There's only the darts left.

0:39:480:39:51

-The Ty Newydd pub in Sarn Mellteyrn

-is the location this time.

0:39:530:39:57

-The contestants can relax

-before the final challenge.

0:39:580:40:03

-Well, Dafydd,

-you've been busy all day.

0:40:140:40:18

-You're practising your darts.

0:40:180:40:21

-Do you play every week?

0:40:210:40:22

-Do you play every week?

-

-I did last year.

0:40:220:40:23

-But it didn't go well.

0:40:230:40:26

-I'm glad that we're fundraising

-for good causes.

0:40:270:40:31

-It's a good thing.

0:40:320:40:34

-It doesn't matter who wins,

-ultimately.

0:40:350:40:38

-It's only a bit of fun.

0:40:390:40:41

-When will you be in bed tonight?

0:40:410:40:44

-It's 7.15, and the day's not over.

0:40:440:40:47

-It's 7.15, and the day's not over.

-

-It's not halfway yet!

0:40:470:40:49

-The Lleyn Triathlon

-is in for a late finish...

0:40:510:40:55

-..but Elis Morris

-has to get up early to be a farmer.

0:40:550:41:00

-Elis Morris is a city boy...

0:41:020:41:04

-Elis Morris is a city boy...

-

-Milking!

0:41:040:41:06

-But his heart's set

-on being a farmer.

0:41:060:41:09

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

0:41:100:41:12

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

-

-Out of Cardiff?

0:41:120:41:13

-As you can see,

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

0:41:140:41:17

-I've been saving to buy a farm

-for as long as I can remember.

0:41:180:41:23

-Until then, I help my relatives

-in North Wales...

0:41:250:41:28

-..and learn a few tricks

-about farming.

0:41:290:41:32

-What are we doing today?

0:41:400:41:41

-What are we doing today?

-

-Milking.

0:41:410:41:43

-We're all kitted up.

0:41:440:41:46

-You look smart.

0:41:470:41:48

-You look smart as well.

0:41:480:41:50

-Here you are, Elis.

0:41:500:41:52

-It's freezing!

0:41:530:41:54

-You'll warm up

-when we start milking.

0:41:550:41:59

-Cows don't hold back.

0:42:000:42:01

-They don't tell us

-when they want to go to the toilet.

0:42:010:42:05

-They just go.

0:42:050:42:06

-Thanks for the warning.

0:42:070:42:08

-How many cattle are there here?

0:42:170:42:20

-We milk 320, 40 cows at a time.

0:42:200:42:24

-Twenty on each side.

0:42:240:42:26

-This is really cool, but watch out

-for the brown stuff that comes out.

0:42:260:42:31

-That's horrible!

0:42:360:42:37

-I'll choose a quiet one

-and you can clean it.

0:42:370:42:42

-What are you doing now?

0:42:430:42:45

-I'm cleaning her teats...

0:42:450:42:47

-..so that dirt

-doesn't get into the milk.

0:42:470:42:50

-I could probably reach.

0:42:510:42:53

-You have to reach comfortably.

0:42:530:42:55

-Press them tightly.

0:43:050:43:07

-Who's doing this job?

0:43:090:43:10

-Elis?

0:43:110:43:12

-That's not on the teat.

0:43:150:43:16

-If you look at that jar,

-we know this one has finished.

0:43:210:43:25

-I'll just check to make sure.

0:43:250:43:27

-This is difficult work.

0:43:290:43:31

-This is difficult work.

-

-But it's fun as well.

0:43:310:43:33

-After milking,

-we spray them with iodine.

0:43:330:43:37

-That keeps their udders clean

-and free of disease.

0:43:370:43:42

-Clean the udder.

0:43:440:43:45

-Clean the udder.

-

-Do I spray every teat?

0:43:450:43:48

-There's poo on you now!

0:43:520:43:55

-On my neck?

0:43:560:43:58

-There, and there,

-and there and there!

0:43:580:44:02

-Where on my face?

0:44:020:44:04

-Thanks for coming to help.

0:44:140:44:15

-Well done, boys.

0:44:160:44:17

-We learnt a lot about milking.

0:44:260:44:30

-I think that was great.

0:44:300:44:32

-Yes, it was great.

0:44:320:44:33

-Yes, it was great.

-

-We'd better go home.

0:44:330:44:35

-To have a proper wash.

0:44:360:44:38

-One step at a time, Elis.

0:44:430:44:45

-As the Lleyn Triathlon

-draws to a close...

0:44:450:44:49

-..the talk at the bar

-turns to the day's heroics.

0:44:490:44:53

-It's something different...

0:44:560:44:58

-..from the germ of a Saturday night

-idea to over 50 participants.

0:44:580:45:04

-The publicity it attracts

-is sure to attract more people.

0:45:050:45:09

-Shot of the day!

0:45:150:45:16

-It's a fun day,

-and everyone gets on.

0:45:170:45:21

-Some look forward to the golf,

-others to the shooting.

0:45:230:45:28

-I enjoyed the shooting this year,

-for once, but the golf was poor.

0:45:280:45:32

-It's great to switch off,

-go there and have fun.

0:45:340:45:39

-You have to mix

-because you can't enter as a team.

0:45:390:45:43

-You're put in a team, so you mix

-with new faces every year.

0:45:440:45:49

-It's a chance for us

-to socialize with the young lads.

0:45:510:45:56

-Better still,

-we raise money for charity.

0:45:570:46:00

-But before I leave...

0:46:040:46:06

-..one of the greats

-is about to step up to the oche.

0:46:060:46:11

-You're playing darts.

0:46:120:46:13

-Remember to clap!

0:46:150:46:16

-Everyone will want these three darts

-after I finish!

0:46:200:46:23

-This is a hell of a job.

0:46:470:46:49

-Thank heavens

-I wasn't playing for my supper.

0:46:500:46:54

-What do we need?

0:46:540:46:55

-What do we need?

-

-Everything!

0:46:550:46:56

-It's been a day

-with a bit of everything.

0:46:570:47:01

-Over 1,000 was raised

-for local good causes...

0:47:020:47:07

-..including Ysbyty Bryn Beryl,

-the choice of the winning team.

0:47:070:47:12

-Yes, the Lleyn Triathlon,

-truly a day of pure enjoyment.
