-Hello and welcome

0:00:170:00:20

-I hope you're all well

-and enjoying your weekend so far.

0:00:200:00:24

-There's plenty of things for you

-to enjoy over the coming hour.

0:00:250:00:29

-I hear of the ancient tradition

-of the Mari Lwyd...

0:00:290:00:33

-..at Ysgol Gymraeg Dyffryn y Glowyr

-in Cwmtwrch.

0:00:330:00:37

-The Welsh and the Basque people

-met in Machynlleth.

0:00:370:00:41

-Gerallt has the story.

0:00:410:00:43

-Daf Wyn joins

-a group of brave folk...

0:00:440:00:47

-..under a cold waterfall

-in the Brecon Beacons.

0:00:470:00:51

-Forget Alfie's Angels as Rhodri

-meets Arwel's Angels in Tregaron.

0:00:510:00:57

-Yes, there's something to suit

-everyone's taste over the next hour.

0:00:570:01:02

-Welcome, once again, to Bore Da.

0:01:020:01:05

-We start the morning in Cwmtwrch.

0:01:100:01:13

-Last week, the Neath Port Talbot

-Welsh Language Initiative...

0:01:140:01:18

-..visited 15 schools...

0:01:180:01:21

-..to teach them about

-the old tradition of the Mari Lwyd.

0:01:210:01:25

-I went to learn about the Mari Lwyd

-and join in on the fun.

0:01:250:01:30

-# Here we come, dear friends

0:01:310:01:34

-# Here we come, dear friends

0:01:340:01:39

-# To ask for permission,

-to ask for permission

0:01:390:01:43

-# To ask for permission to sing #

0:01:430:01:47

-Most of us know about the

-Welsh tradition of the Mari Lwyd.

0:01:470:01:51

-How much do the pupils of

-Ysgol Gymraeg Dyffryn y Glowyr know?

0:01:520:01:57

-# To ask for permission,

-to ask for permission to sing #

0:01:570:02:03

-A lot of children have

-a Welsh medium education.

0:02:030:02:06

-Their knowledge of Welsh culture

-is another question.

0:02:070:02:11

-We're working with schools

-to promote these Welsh traditions...

0:02:110:02:15

-..and educate people about

-their culture and Welsh identity.

0:02:150:02:20

-Happy New Year to you all!

0:02:200:02:22

-We wanted as many people as possible

-to see the Mari Lwyd...

0:02:230:02:27

-.so we started with the pubs

-before moving to the schools.

0:02:270:02:31

-These days, the schools

-take precedence over the pubs.

0:02:310:02:35

-I didn't know anything

-about the Mari Lwyd before today.

0:02:420:02:46

-But I've learnt loads

-about the Mari Lwyd today.

0:02:460:02:50

-She's a symbol of a happy new year.

0:02:500:02:54

-They come to the school every year

-to sing and dance.

0:02:550:02:58

-They use a horse's skull

-as it's a symbol of strength.

0:02:590:03:04

-I really enjoyed today.

0:03:040:03:06

-We learnt a lot about her.

0:03:060:03:08

-And we did a lot of singing.

0:03:090:03:11

-Yeah!

0:03:110:03:13

-# Fa, la, la, la, la

0:03:130:03:14

-# La, la, la, la #

0:03:150:03:18

-This week, we'll visit 15 schools

-and meet over 1,500 children.

0:03:190:03:24

-We hope people come to meet

-the Mari Lwyd and learn about her.

0:03:250:03:31

-# Happy New Year to you #

0:03:310:03:33

-The children will never forget

-seeing the Mari Lwyd.

0:03:330:03:38

-This isn't an old tradition

-or something from the past...

0:03:380:03:43

-..but it is alive and well today.

0:03:430:03:46

-It's important to safeguard

-these traditions for the future.

0:03:460:03:51

-# Happy New Year to you #

0:03:510:03:54

-I certainly learnt a lot

-about the Mari Lwyd.

0:03:560:03:59

-My thanks to Ysgol Gymraeg Dyffryn

-y Glowyr for the warm welcome.

0:03:590:04:04

-We leave Cwmtwrch

-and head to Machynlleth.

0:04:040:04:07

-People from Wales and the Basque

-Country celebrated two cultures.

0:04:080:04:14

-Gerallt popped over

-to say "Hello!" or "Kaixo!"

0:04:140:04:18

-Before we talk about the artwork...

0:04:300:04:33

-..what effect did this part of Spain

-have on you?

0:04:330:04:37

-I went to the Basque Country

-in Northern Spain in September.

0:04:370:04:41

-I stayed in the lovely region

-of San Sebastian...

0:04:420:04:45

-..which is a marvellous city.

0:04:450:04:48

-One day, I had the opportunity...

0:04:490:04:52

-..to travel into the countryside

-and visit the Lecunberri region.

0:04:530:04:57

-They speak the Basque language there

-as they do in San Sebastian.

0:04:580:05:02

-The language makes it

-a very special place.

0:05:030:05:06

-It's a hive of activity

-at Ysgol Bro Hyddgen.

0:05:070:05:10

-The pupils are enjoying it.

0:05:100:05:12

-What are the Basque influences

-in their artwork?

0:05:130:05:16

-There are many farmhouses in the

-rural areas of the Basque Country.

0:05:170:05:21

-They have three or four floors.

0:05:210:05:24

-On the top level...

0:05:240:05:25

-..they hang a frame from the ceiling

-to hold many things...

0:05:260:05:30

-..such as chairs, teapots

-and a whole lot more.

0:05:300:05:33

-In the art room...

0:05:330:05:35

-..the pupils are making bits

-and pieces to hang on their frame.

0:05:360:05:42

-Before Christmas, we didn't know

-a lot about the Basque Country.

0:05:420:05:47

-I hadn't heard of it.

0:05:470:05:50

-It appears that the Basque Country

-and Wales are very similar.

0:05:500:05:54

-One of my items is a frying pan

-with eggs and bacon in it!

0:05:540:05:59

-I like this piece

-because it stands out.

0:06:000:06:04

-I love food,

-especially fish and chips...

0:06:040:06:07

-..so I've made a basket

-with fish, chips and onion rings.

0:06:070:06:13

-It has been a good experience...

0:06:130:06:16

-..for the children and

-the department to work with Luned.

0:06:160:06:20

-The Basque element

-is something completely different.

0:06:200:06:25

-I think everyone's

-enjoyed themselves.

0:06:260:06:29

-In the Tannery in Machynlleth...

0:06:350:06:37

-..you can see work by Juan Gorriti,

-a prominent Basque artist.

0:06:370:06:41

-Luned Rhys Parri knows him

-and admires his work.

0:06:420:06:45

-He is a wonderful

-and prolific artist.

0:06:510:06:55

-He's produced all kinds of art...

0:06:560:07:01

-..from paintings to sculptures.

0:07:010:07:04

-He likes to paint his pieces

-in a specific shade of blue...

0:07:070:07:11

-..which is known as a Gorriti Blue.

0:07:120:07:16

-We're very fortunate

-that Gorriti's work...

0:07:190:07:22

-..has been brought here from the

-Basque Country in Northern Spain.

0:07:220:07:28

-We can see it in all its glory

-in Machynlleth.

0:07:280:07:31

-That's what I call a great idea.

0:07:370:07:39

-One of the most famous garages

-of the Aeron Valley...

0:07:390:07:43

-..is set to close its doors

-for the last time.

0:07:440:07:47

-Yvonne went to reminisce...

0:07:470:07:50

-..and wish all the best

-to the owner, Tim on his retirement.

0:07:500:07:55

-In 1989, Tim Davies opened

-this garage in Ystrad Aeron...

0:07:590:08:05

-..but he marks the end of an era and

-closes its doors for the last time.

0:08:050:08:10

-He's a real petrolhead...

0:08:100:08:13

-..with fond memories

-of being a professional racer.

0:08:130:08:17

-I started racing cars in 1977 after

-entering a Western Mail competition.

0:08:190:08:25

-The advert read "Drive yourself

-around Brands Hatch!"

0:08:250:08:31

-I won the competition...

0:08:310:08:33

-..and was named the Brands Hatch

-Racing School Driver of the Year.

0:08:330:08:38

-I drove a Formula 1 car and I hadn't

-driven a lot so it was exciting.

0:08:380:08:44

-Tim became a tutor at Brands Hatch.

0:08:450:08:48

-He trained various celebrities...

0:08:490:08:52

-..such as Geoff Capes, Lucinda Green

-and Shakin' Stevens.

0:08:520:08:57

-It was very interesting

-to teach them and they enjoyed it.

0:08:570:09:01

-They spent the weekend at Brands

-Hatch and it was like a holiday.

0:09:020:09:06

-I got to teach them

-and it was a great honour for me.

0:09:060:09:10

-He won the British Championships...

0:09:120:09:15

-..and was third in the Wales

-Sports Personality of the Year.

0:09:160:09:21

-With the correct funding, he could

-have been a Formula 1 driver.

0:09:210:09:26

-My best year was 1983.

0:09:260:09:29

-I won the Formula 4 2000

-Championship for single seaters...

0:09:290:09:35

-..and won about 15 races that year.

0:09:350:09:38

-There was also the Formula 3000 with

-the first street race in Birmingham.

0:09:380:09:43

-It was a great time of my life.

0:09:430:09:46

-I have very fond memories

-of that time.

0:09:470:09:50

-He also enjoys restoring

-classic cars and tractors.

0:09:500:09:55

-His contribution to this community

-is highly appreciated.

0:09:560:10:00

-He built most of the garage

-himself...

0:10:010:10:04

-..and restored all the cars

-and tractors.

0:10:040:10:10

-His work is excellent.

0:10:100:10:12

-Tim's a real perfectionist

-and always has been.

0:10:130:10:18

-When I worked in the garage

-in the 1960s...

0:10:190:10:22

-..the Lotus Cortina

-was the bee's knees!

0:10:220:10:25

-I'm delighted to have two.

0:10:250:10:27

-The cars were only fit for scrap

-when I bought them...

0:10:280:10:32

-..but I decided

-to repair and restore them.

0:10:320:10:38

-That's what gives me pleasure

-in life.

0:10:380:10:41

-My first Lotus Cortina took

-two and a half years to restore...

0:10:410:10:45

-..but the tractors

-have taken many years.

0:10:460:10:49

-I knew I'd eventually finish them

-and they sit in the showroom now.

0:10:490:10:55

-You got back into the driver's seat

-five years ago.

0:10:590:11:04

-How did it feel?

0:11:040:11:07

-I won the Touring Car Championship

-in 2013 and 2014.

0:11:070:11:12

-It was great to know

-that I was still able to do it.

0:11:120:11:17

-These days,

-it's much more fun to race.

0:11:180:11:21

-When the green lights come on

-and the race starts...

0:11:210:11:26

-..you forget everything

-and focus on winning.

0:11:260:11:31

-Tim will not be in the shop

-and garage in the future...

0:11:320:11:36

-..but I'm sure he'll still

-be behind the wheel!

0:11:370:11:40

-I've been here for a few years

-but it's time to move on.

0:11:410:11:45

-I'm going to enjoy my time off

-and nothing beats racing a car!

0:11:450:11:50

-Good luck to Tim.

0:11:580:12:00

-Let's see what's coming up

-on the programme after the break.

0:12:000:12:05

-We visit Sgwd yr Eira...

0:12:050:12:08

-..as something incredible and

-unusual happened there last Sunday.

0:12:080:12:12

-Huw Ffash is also here...

0:12:130:12:15

-..with some fashion advice for 2017.

0:12:150:12:19

-Go and make a quick cuppa and

-I'll see you again in a few minutes.

-Welcome back.

0:12:370:12:38

-Do you have an old tradition that

-you do at the start of a new year?

0:12:380:12:43

-Do you enjoy a family walk

-on New Year's Day...

0:12:440:12:47

-..or meet old friends in the pub?

0:12:470:12:50

-What about exercising

-in the Brecon Beacons...

0:12:500:12:54

-..under a cold waterfall?

0:12:540:12:56

-No?

0:12:560:12:57

-Nor me!

0:12:570:12:58

-But it's the tradition

-of one group of very brave folk.

0:12:590:13:03

-The Brecon Beacons.

0:13:050:13:06

-It's one of the three glorious

-national parks of Wales.

0:13:060:13:11

-Nestled in the Brecon Beacons,

-near Aberdare...

0:13:110:13:14

-..is an area

-known as Waterfall Country.

0:13:150:13:18

-The most famous is Sgwd yr Eira.

0:13:200:13:22

-It attracts nature experts

-and walkers.

0:13:220:13:26

-At the start of every new year,

-it hosts a very unusual event.

0:13:260:13:32

-Our journey starts on a cold morning

-in the village of Penderyn...

0:13:340:13:39

-..where a group of people

-have gathered to do some karate.

0:13:390:13:44

-The karate groups of Wales all meet

-on the first Sunday of the new year.

0:13:450:13:51

-We also welcome people

-from all over the world.

0:13:510:13:54

-It sets us up

-for a hard year of training.

0:13:550:13:59

-No other session will be as tough

-as one under a waterfall in January.

0:13:590:14:04

-That's what we're doing today.

0:14:040:14:06

-Everyone was raring to start the

-40-minute-journey to Sgwd yr Eira.

0:14:080:14:13

-They ran to the half-way-mark...

0:14:130:14:16

-..before stopping to do some Kihon,

-which involves strikes and kicks.

0:14:160:14:21

-KARATE YELLS

0:14:210:14:23

-After 20 minutes of activity,

-we moved on to the waterfall...

0:14:240:14:28

-..but we had to deal with

-the slippery uneven path first.

0:14:280:14:32

-I do the waterfall karate because

-it's the start of the new year.

0:14:370:14:42

-I feel terrible after eating and

-drinking too much over Christmas...

0:14:420:14:47

-..so it's great to come here

-and start the new year with a bang!

0:14:470:14:51

-It can be difficult to drag yourself

-off the sofa but we come every year.

0:14:520:14:57

-There are people here from London,

-Manchester, Germany and Ireland.

0:14:570:15:02

-They come to make friends and

-be inspired to return to training.

0:15:020:15:07

-Everyone wanted

-to experience Mokuso...

0:15:100:15:13

-..where they focus the mind

-and clear the head in silence.

0:15:130:15:18

-Those with a black belt

-got to enter the water too.

0:15:210:15:25

-And then, the moment arrived.

0:15:260:15:29

-Everyone in turn stepped forward to

-stand under the water and strike it.

0:15:290:15:35

-We come here and everyone

-gets to practice their punches.

0:15:360:15:41

-This is done in a mindful way

-under the waterfall.

0:15:410:15:46

-How do you feel after doing that?

0:15:460:15:48

-I feel wonderful now.

0:15:490:15:51

-At the beginning, it was terrible...

0:15:510:15:54

-..but you feel truly wonderful

-after you've done it.

0:15:540:15:58

-This is about pushing our bodies

-to the extreme.

0:15:580:16:02

-It means that during fights...

0:16:020:16:05

-..we know how it feels

-to have pushed the body to the max.

0:16:060:16:11

-It nurtures perseverance, is a means

-of inspiration and keeps us fit.

0:16:120:16:17

-It's cold, but fantastic too.

0:16:180:16:20

-How did it go?

0:16:210:16:22

-How did it go?

-

-It was great.

0:16:220:16:24

-It was very cold but brilliant.

0:16:240:16:27

-Was it difficult?

0:16:280:16:29

-No, it wasn't difficult for me

-at all.

0:16:290:16:32

-It was fantastic

-and a lot of people enjoyed it.

0:16:320:16:37

-I've never done this before so

-I was nervous and it was very cold.

0:16:370:16:43

-I thought it might be nice

-but that wasn't the case!

0:16:430:16:47

-I've come from Germany

-especially for this event...

0:16:480:16:51

-..after hearing about the crazy folk

-who train under the waterfall.

0:16:520:16:56

-I wanted to be one of them.

0:16:560:16:59

-It was a great experience and

-lovely other than being a bit cold!

0:16:590:17:03

-I'm ready to start training

-during this new year.

0:17:050:17:09

-Are you looking forward to a shower?

0:17:090:17:10

-Are you looking forward to a shower?

-

-Yes.

0:17:100:17:11

-There's no better way to start the

-year than by battling the elements.

0:17:120:17:17

-We're here whatever the weather.

0:17:170:17:19

-It's a fantastic way

-to start the year.

0:17:190:17:22

-This was wonderful

-and I feel fantastic!

0:17:220:17:25

-Wow, they are very brave.

0:17:330:17:37

-We leave karate

-and head to the fashion world.

0:17:370:17:40

-Huw Ffash has some fashion advice

-for the season.

0:17:400:17:44

-We start in Debenhams and

-the collection by Julien Macdonald.

0:17:450:17:49

-I was at Julien's show in London

-six months ago...

0:17:500:17:54

-..and saw the Julien Macdonald

-couture collection.

0:17:540:17:58

-This collection is more affordable

-and for every day folk.

0:17:580:18:03

-This has been influenced

-by his catwalk show in London...

0:18:040:18:08

-..but it was part

-of his menswear collection.

0:18:080:18:11

-The men were wearing

-these military jackets.

0:18:120:18:15

-Ruby's jacket

-is from his Star collection.

0:18:150:18:18

-Military styles

-are going to be very fashionable.

0:18:180:18:21

-If you have an item

-that's double-breasted...

0:18:220:18:25

-..with large buttons

-and braiding around the edges...

0:18:250:18:30

-..it will really hit the spot!

0:18:300:18:32

-Take care

-in how you wear these pieces.

0:18:320:18:35

-In the shops, the matching trousers

-are sold next to the jackets.

0:18:350:18:40

-It can make you look

-like a pantomime character!

0:18:410:18:44

-It might not be clear for the

-viewers but this is navy and black.

0:18:440:18:49

-The main body is navy and

-the sleeves are trimmed with velvet.

0:18:490:18:53

-It's odd to see these dark tones for

-their spring / summer collections.

0:18:540:18:59

-Many designers will only show once

-a year so the clothes will change.

0:18:590:19:05

-I like that jacket.

0:19:050:19:07

-Next, we've got some denim.

0:19:070:19:09

-I always say that denim is ideal

-for bridging the seasons.

0:19:090:19:13

-Designers use it for quick sales...

0:19:130:19:16

-..but denim is a very strong theme

-this season.

0:19:160:19:19

-It's all about the treatment

-of the denim.

0:19:200:19:23

-Women will be wearing blazers.

0:19:230:19:25

-Men will be wearing tailored jackets

-made from denim.

0:19:250:19:29

-Denim shirts are always popular.

0:19:290:19:31

-Yes, they are always fashionable.

0:19:320:19:34

-This season, you'll find

-unexpected garments made from denim.

0:19:340:19:40

-We're familiar with denim dungarees.

0:19:400:19:43

-Famous labels

-are now making denim jumpsuits.

0:19:430:19:46

-This is from a company called Mih.

0:19:460:19:50

-It's 295 and takes us

-to the world of the designers.

0:19:500:19:55

-Will there be anything similar

-on the high street?

0:19:560:19:59

-The high street will copy it

-in a matter of weeks!

0:19:590:20:02

-I have to talk about the price.

0:20:030:20:05

-All our models tried it on.

0:20:050:20:07

-They are all tall and slim

-but have different sizes.

0:20:070:20:12

-The length from the top of the chest

-to the top of the legs is fantastic.

0:20:120:20:17

-A lot of women are caught out

-by that area.

0:20:170:20:21

-The gusset can be problematic

-in an all-in-one, Alun!

0:20:210:20:25

-This has a lovely fit

-and the denim is fabulous...

0:20:250:20:29

-..but I decided to avoid the 1970s

-in terms of the accessories.

0:20:290:20:33

-The magazines team it with platforms

-or clogs.

0:20:330:20:36

-In Llanelli, you look better

-with a good quality bag and brogues.

0:20:370:20:41

-Thank you, Angelica.

0:20:420:20:44

-Megan is next.

0:20:440:20:45

-Before we mention the clothes...

0:20:460:20:49

-..I need to give a shout out

-to Steffan Parry.

0:20:490:20:52

-He's a pupil at Megan's school

-and had an accident earlier.

0:20:520:20:56

-He's fine but Megan promised him

-a shout out on tonight's Heno.

0:20:560:21:00

-Get well soon, Steffan!

0:21:010:21:03

-Doesn't Miss Mills look lovely,

-Steffan?

0:21:030:21:06

-Megan's in a floral print.

0:21:070:21:09

-It's reminiscent

-of the 1960s and 1970s.

0:21:090:21:12

-Yes, and it's teamed

-with matching accessories.

0:21:120:21:15

-This dress is an investment.

0:21:160:21:17

-It's 75 and is from one of

-the labels sold within ASOS.

0:21:180:21:21

-In the summer, it would look great

-with some white plimsolls.

0:21:220:21:27

-I've teamed it

-with a tasteful fringed bag.

0:21:270:21:30

-It's Italian leather!

0:21:300:21:32

-We've also got very high heels.

0:21:320:21:34

-I'm surprised she can walk

-as teachers normally wear flats!

0:21:340:21:39

-Thank you, Megan.

0:21:390:21:41

-Finally, we move into sport.

0:21:410:21:43

-We've had the Olympic Games.

0:21:430:21:45

-The Commonwealth Games

-are on the horizon.

0:21:450:21:48

-Sport influences fashion but these

-aren't items to wear to the gym.

0:21:480:21:53

-These clothes

-are influenced by sport...

0:21:540:21:57

-..in terms of the fabrics, patterns

-and construction of the garments.

0:21:570:22:02

-Rhiannon can open the coat...

0:22:020:22:04

-..to reveal the cropped jumper

-and skirt.

0:22:050:22:10

-You can replace the skirt...

0:22:100:22:12

-..with black jeans.

0:22:130:22:14

-The jacket is lovely

-and it's all teamed with a rucksack.

0:22:150:22:18

-These four look so different as some

-of the seasons are all the same.

0:22:190:22:24

-I'm back at London Fashion Week

-in six weeks.

0:22:250:22:28

-I'll see the winter collections.

0:22:280:22:30

-Thank you, Huw. That was great.

0:22:310:22:33

-Thanks to Huw

-for all that useful advice.

0:22:350:22:38

-I recently received an invitation

-from the RNIB in Wales...

0:22:380:22:42

-..to attend the launch

-of a new project.

0:22:420:22:45

-The RNIB in Wales helps

-over 100,000 people in Wales...

0:22:450:22:50

-..who have lost their vision.

0:22:500:22:53

-The launch was for the introduction

-of a new series of audio books.

0:22:530:22:57

-It's a wonderful collection.

0:22:580:23:00

-Today, I've come to the National

-Museum of Wales in Cardiff...

0:23:060:23:11

-..for a very special launch

-by the RNIB in Wales...

0:23:110:23:14

-..to mark the centenary of the birth

-of the nation's favourite author.

0:23:150:23:19

-It's Roald Dahl!

0:23:200:23:21

-We're here today to show people...

0:23:270:23:31

-..that we have produced 16

-audio books in Welsh by Roald Dahl.

0:23:310:23:35

-We explained the process

-of working with our readers...

0:23:360:23:40

-..when recording audio books

-at our Cardiff studios.

0:23:400:23:44

-"Boggis and Bunce and Bean

-knew very well what was going on...

0:23:440:23:49

-"..and it made them wild with rage."

0:23:490:23:53

-Everyone reads Roald Dahl's work.

0:23:530:23:55

-His characters are so memorable.

0:23:560:23:59

-Everyone has an idea

-of how each character should sound.

0:23:590:24:03

-This is thanks to the way

-that Roald Dahl writes.

0:24:040:24:07

-His descriptions of people

-are incredible.

0:24:070:24:10

-One of the first problems

-to overcome...

0:24:100:24:13

-..is to find the sound

-of the character.

0:24:130:24:16

-Will they have a really deep voice

-or be high-pitched and friendly?

0:24:160:24:21

-Will I be able to maintain the voice

-throughout the whole book?

0:24:210:24:26

-We record from cover to cover.

0:24:260:24:29

-"But Mr Fox was too clever for them.

0:24:290:24:33

-"He always approached a farm

-with the wind blowing in his face."

0:24:330:24:38

-You're given a book.

0:24:380:24:39

-You read the book and

-choose voices for the characters.

0:24:400:24:44

-It's also important that you don't

-make a noise when turning the pages.

0:24:440:24:50

-Sentences don't start at the bottom

-of the page and finish on the next.

0:24:500:24:55

-The sound of the page turning

-is cut out...

0:24:550:24:58

-..thanks to the marvels

-of digital technology.

0:24:580:25:02

-We read about 30 pages in two hours.

0:25:020:25:05

-By that point,

-you get a bit cross-eyed...

0:25:060:25:09

-..so you have to stop

-and go for a coffee!

0:25:090:25:12

-We haven't done this before

-with Roald Dahl's books...

0:25:190:25:23

-..but we chose these books

-to celebrate his centenary.

0:25:240:25:27

-It's great to include more

-children's books to our collection.

0:25:280:25:32

-People can join a library for free.

0:25:320:25:35

-It means that they can borrow

-the book without paying for it.

0:25:350:25:39

-There's a reason why

-Roald Dahl is still classed...

0:25:390:25:43

-..as one of the greatest

-storytellers in the world.

0:25:440:25:47

-Everyone should have the chance

-to enjoy his work.

0:25:470:25:51

-That's all for now

-but there's plenty more to come.

0:25:560:25:59

-We've already heard about

-the Mari Lwyd this morning.

0:26:000:26:03

-After the break, Gerallt Pennant

-hears about the Plygain tradition.

0:26:040:26:10

-Rhodri Gomer

-also meets Arwel's Angels...

0:26:100:26:14

-..a group of women from Tregaron.

0:26:140:26:17

-Don't you move a muscle!

-Welcome back.

0:26:330:26:34

-Have you ever heard about Plygain?

0:26:340:26:37

-Plygain is a traditional service...

0:26:370:26:40

-..where individuals, duos, groups

-and families meet to sing carols.

0:26:400:26:46

-Here's a taster of the Plygain

-at Ebenezer Chapel in Dinas Mawddwy.

0:26:460:26:52

-# They will sing

-in the fields of heaven

0:26:520:26:57

-# They will sing

-in the fields of heaven

0:26:570:27:01

-# They sing all their days

-for the Lord #

0:27:020:27:07

-# We sing to the Lord, our God

0:27:070:27:11

-# To declare the promise

-of our Saviour #

0:27:110:27:16

-# We will try to find it

-before the end of our times

0:27:170:27:22

-# Our days will come #

0:27:220:27:26

-After the singing,

-comes the feasting.

0:27:260:27:30

-The supper is just as important as

-the Plygain, Reverend Roland Barnes.

0:27:300:27:35

-It isn't the case for me

-because I enjoy the singing!

0:27:350:27:39

-Tonight, you sang for the first time

-with a party of Welsh learners...

0:27:390:27:44

-..which was quite a challenge.

0:27:440:27:47

-Yes, but we all enjoyed ourselves.

0:27:470:27:49

-In our final rehearsal...

0:27:490:27:54

-..I told them to listen to the

-person standing next to them...

0:27:540:27:59

-..so that we could stay in harmony.

0:27:590:28:02

-I also told them that we were

-singing in order to praise the Lord.

0:28:020:28:06

-The third and most important thing

-was to enjoy it.

0:28:070:28:11

-# We will sing joyfully

0:28:110:28:15

-# Praise to Mary's child #

0:28:160:28:20

-Is that a good sandwich,

-Magwen Pughe?

0:28:200:28:23

-It's wonderful!

0:28:230:28:24

-Whilst you're munching away

-and as a member of Parti Darowen...

0:28:240:28:30

-..what are your thoughts of the

-Plygain service at Dinas Mawddwy?

0:28:310:28:35

-It's wonderful

-and we enjoy it every year.

0:28:350:28:38

-It was a light-hearted Plygain.

0:28:380:28:42

-I love coming here every year...

0:28:420:28:44

-..and they will support us

-at Darowen next Monday night.

0:28:450:28:49

-# We put our hope in your healing

0:28:490:28:53

-# And a full life to all mankind #

0:28:530:28:58

-This is thirsty work but

-they deserve their refreshments.

0:28:590:29:03

-Yes, and it's a social event.

0:29:030:29:06

-It's an evening where

-we can take stock of our lives.

0:29:060:29:11

-People also enjoy chatting

-over their supper.

0:29:110:29:16

-It's wonderful

-to see children here...

0:29:160:29:19

-..singing at the Plygain too.

0:29:190:29:23

-After they have grown up, I'm sure

-they will remember the experience...

0:29:240:29:29

-..of singing a carol

-in a Plygain service.

0:29:290:29:32

-# Therefore, sinner, hurry

0:29:330:29:36

-# As thou art

0:29:360:29:38

-# As thou art

0:29:380:29:41

-# To ask for his Sanctuary

0:29:410:29:45

-# As thou art #

0:29:450:29:47

-Apart from your voice...

0:29:470:29:50

-..this little red book is just

-as important at a Plygain service.

0:29:510:29:55

-Yes, it's very important.

0:29:550:29:57

-I'm sure I've had it

-for at least 40 years.

0:29:580:30:01

-I first used it when Robert Ifans

-was at Maesmor.

0:30:010:30:07

-He told me to sing as a tenor

-with the Mawddwy party.

0:30:080:30:12

-# We should worship him

0:30:120:30:16

-# And remain to do so #

0:30:160:30:19

-How was the singing tonight?

0:30:190:30:21

-It's been great

-and it was an excellent Plygain.

0:30:210:30:25

-It was just the thing

-to finish the season.

0:30:250:30:30

-I remember going to a Plygain

-at Llanymawddwy...

0:30:300:30:33

-..and there was 15

-before the first half was over.

0:30:340:30:37

-They went to smoke in the cemetery

-during the break.

0:30:370:30:41

-It wasn't like that tonight.

0:30:410:30:42

-It wasn't like that tonight.

-

-No, not at all.

0:30:420:30:43

-It's been a memorable Plygain.

0:30:440:30:45

-It's been a memorable Plygain.

-

-Yes, it's one I'll remember.

0:30:450:30:47

-It's important

-to retain these old traditions.

0:30:470:30:52

-# As thou art

0:30:520:30:54

-# As thou art

0:30:550:30:57

-# For that, come promptly

0:30:570:31:03

-# As thou art #

0:31:030:31:07

-Thank you, Gerallt.

0:31:080:31:10

-If you enjoyed that item

-as much as me...

0:31:100:31:12

-..then I'm sure

-you'd love to hear more.

0:31:130:31:16

-Let's return to Dinas Mawddwy...

0:31:160:31:18

-..to hear a song that is performed

-at the end of every Plygain.

0:31:190:31:23

-This is Carol y Swper.

0:31:230:31:25

-Keep an eye out for Plygain services

-in your area.

0:31:250:31:29

-# Let humanity sing together

0:31:300:31:33

-# On the day of salvation

0:31:340:31:37

-# The plan of Providence

0:31:370:31:41

-# Has come to light

0:31:410:31:45

-# A song of Hallelujah

0:31:450:31:48

-# Of praise to the most High

0:31:480:31:52

-# The Messiah of Judah

0:31:520:31:56

-# Without ceasing

0:31:560:31:59

-# Let us praise for joy

0:32:000:32:05

-# The truth is

-that there is a Redeemer

0:32:050:32:10

-# A Saviour is born to us

0:32:100:32:15

-# That is Christ, King Jesus

0:32:160:32:21

-# Before day, before day

0:32:210:32:24

-# In Bethlehem without being hidden

0:32:240:32:29

-# There is a Redeemer

-at the dawning of the day

0:32:300:32:36

-# O Happy Day!

0:32:360:32:42

-# Let us make use of our privileges

0:32:440:32:47

-# There is danger behind them

0:32:470:32:50

-# Before the day of death

0:32:510:32:54

-# Let us escape

0:32:540:32:57

-# Today is a day of reconciliation

0:32:570:33:01

-# And supper is ready

0:33:010:33:04

-# The table is set

0:33:040:33:07

-# O let us hurry

0:33:070:33:11

-# The hands that bore nails

0:33:110:33:16

-# Receives prodigal children

0:33:170:33:21

-# To the land of heavenly Canaan

0:33:220:33:27

-# To feast eternally

0:33:270:33:32

-# Amen

0:33:320:33:34

-# Amen

0:33:340:33:36

-# Let there be praise forever, Amen

0:33:360:33:41

-# Hallelujah to the Messiah

0:33:420:33:47

-# Who forgives forever

0:33:470:33:51

-# Amen #

0:33:520:33:56

-That was lovely.

0:33:560:33:58

-It's that time of year...

0:33:580:34:00

-..when we all do our best

-to keep our New Year's Resolutions.

0:34:010:34:05

-Keeping fit is one

-of the most popular resolutions.

0:34:060:34:11

-Let's meet some ladies who take

-their resolution very seriously.

0:34:110:34:16

-Forget Alfie's Angels

-and let's meet Arwel's Angels!

0:34:160:34:20

-Arwel Jones, a fitness instructor

-from Tregaron...

0:34:240:34:29

-..has been training a group of women

-to run the Cors Caron 10K Race.

0:34:290:34:34

-They get together to train

-at least once a week...

0:34:340:34:38

-..either here at the leisure centre

-or on the streets of Tregaron.

0:34:380:34:43

-They are known as Arwel's Angels.

0:34:440:34:46

-Arwel was inspired by the former

-rugby international, Gareth Thomas.

0:34:470:34:53

-After watching Alfie's Angels

-from Cardiff...

0:34:530:34:58

-..we wanted to do something similar

-in Tregaron for local causes.

0:34:580:35:02

-We got a group together

-and they are Arwel's Angels.

0:35:020:35:06

-Everybody has a dream,

-a wish and a goal.

0:35:070:35:11

-With a lot of people,

-that goal is to be fit and healthy.

0:35:110:35:15

-These women had that dream,

-wish and goal.

0:35:150:35:18

-They were inspired to do something

-about it and are inspiring others.

0:35:180:35:23

-I remember watching

-Alfie's Angels on the television.

0:35:310:35:35

-It was a really good series

-and I thought it would work here.

0:35:350:35:39

-I thought it was great for Tregaron

-and would bring people together.

0:35:390:35:45

-There's 22 of us who meet

-once a week to run as a group...

0:35:480:35:52

-..and we have some sessions

-at the leisure centre.

0:35:520:35:56

-They also do a buggy-fit session

-on a Monday.

0:35:570:36:00

-A group of new mothers bring our

-babies for some circuit training.

0:36:000:36:05

-Is it fun?

0:36:050:36:06

-Is it fun?

-

-Yes.

0:36:060:36:07

-It's great and motivates you

-to keep fit and go out to run.

0:36:070:36:12

-Some of them have run half marathons

-whilst others have done nothing.

0:36:130:36:18

-Our target is for everyone to finish

-the 5K and 10K without stopping.

0:36:180:36:23

-They can fulfil

-a personal challenge.

0:36:230:36:26

-The idea of Arwel's Angels is that

-anyone of any ability can do it.

0:36:300:36:36

-We have a whole spectrum of ages.

0:36:370:36:39

-The ones at the front

-have done a lot of running...

0:36:400:36:43

-..but those at the back

-are complete novices.

0:36:430:36:47

-It's great

-to get everyone out together.

0:36:470:36:50

-We meet every Sunday morning

-and it's a good reason to get up!

0:36:510:36:55

-It's also an excuse

-to do some exercise.

0:36:560:37:00

-You're all smiling and laughing.

0:37:000:37:02

-You're all smiling and laughing.

-

-Yes, we're good friends.

0:37:020:37:04

-I've always been active and played

-sport but was never one for running.

0:37:040:37:10

-This opportunity

-provided the motivation.

0:37:110:37:14

-I'm so glad that I started!

0:37:150:37:17

-Everyone is improving.

0:37:170:37:20

-We're doing it together

-so helping one another.

0:37:200:37:23

-People are developing

-as the weeks go by.

0:37:230:37:27

-My body shape has changed!

0:37:280:37:30

-Nobody judges anyone

-for walking at the back.

0:37:300:37:33

-We all encourage each other.

0:37:330:37:35

-Looking beyond the Cors Caron Race

-in a couple of weeks...

0:37:380:37:42

-..what is the long-term aim?

0:37:420:37:44

-We hope they become

-hooked on a sport...

0:37:440:37:47

-..and continue to use the

-leisure centre after Arwel's Angles.

0:37:470:37:51

-Some of them might go on

-to run a half marathon.

0:37:510:37:56

-At least they tell me

-that they're enjoying it!

0:37:560:37:59

-Good luck to the ladies

-in their race.

0:38:060:38:09

-In the final part

-of today's programme...

0:38:090:38:13

-..Marion has some beauty advice.

0:38:140:38:17

-We also meet one of the stars

-of Aladdin in the West End.

0:38:170:38:23

-I'll see you back here

-in a few minutes.

-Welcome back.

0:38:380:38:39

-It's time for some beauty advice.

0:38:390:38:42

-Marion has some secrets

-to share with us.

0:38:420:38:46

-We start with a product

-that is now known as Olay...

0:38:480:38:52

-..but back in 1953...

0:38:520:38:55

-..or 1952 to be exact...

0:38:550:38:57

-..it was called Oil of Olay.

0:38:580:39:00

-It's a thin, pink milk...

0:39:000:39:03

-..that can be used on the face

-and your whole body.

0:39:030:39:06

-These days, there's a number

-of products to be had...

0:39:070:39:11

-..in the Oil of Ulay or Olay brand.

0:39:110:39:16

-Every mother and grandmother

-had a pot.

0:39:160:39:19

-It will last forever

-as it is still being sold today!

0:39:190:39:23

-Next, we have Creme Puff

-from Max Factor.

0:39:240:39:29

-It takes us back

-to the golden age of Hollywood...

0:39:290:39:33

-..and the likes of Ava Gardner,

-Vivien Leigh and Jean Harlow.

0:39:330:39:37

-Under the bright, studio lights...

0:39:380:39:40

-..it made their skin

-look totally clear and flawless.

0:39:400:39:44

-Max Factor was a leading brand

-in Hollywood for many years.

0:39:440:39:48

-My mother used Tempting Touch.

0:39:490:39:50

-My mother used Tempting Touch.

-

-Yes, of course.

0:39:500:39:52

-You could buy a refill for it.

0:39:520:39:54

-People bought gold Stratton compacts

-and placed the refill inside.

0:39:550:40:01

-It was very stylish!

0:40:010:40:03

-Pond's has also stood

-the tests of time.

0:40:030:40:06

-The company dates back to 1914.

0:40:060:40:09

-It's over 100 years old!

0:40:090:40:11

-I remember using it

-many years ago...

0:40:110:40:14

-..when I was did pantomimes and

-stage shows with Cwmni Theatr Cymru.

0:40:140:40:19

-It was very thick.

0:40:190:40:20

-You apply it to the face.

0:40:200:40:23

-The heavy make-up almost melts away

-and can be wiped off.

0:40:240:40:29

-It's a much lighter formula now

-but is still just as effective.

0:40:300:40:35

-Let's move on.

0:40:350:40:37

-Where do we start with this podium?

0:40:370:40:40

-My favourite is the Nivea

-because I am a Nivea girl!

0:40:400:40:44

-It's as white and as pure

-as it's always been.

0:40:440:40:49

-It's over 100 years old.

0:40:490:40:51

-The name of Nivea

-comes from the Latin word for snow.

0:40:510:40:56

-It's another product

-that can be used all over your body.

0:40:560:41:00

-This was the first

-oil-and-water-based cream.

0:41:000:41:05

-It's very popular

-and can be used all over the body.

0:41:050:41:09

-Anne French is a cleanser

-that dates back to about 1838.

0:41:090:41:15

-It's very light on the skin

-and full of moisture.

0:41:150:41:19

-It removes the make-up

-from your face and eyes.

0:41:200:41:23

-It also makes the skin

-look healthy...

0:41:240:41:27

-..and gives it a wonderful glow!

0:41:270:41:30

-Pears is next

-and I always remember the adverts.

0:41:310:41:35

-They featured a beautiful woman

-with curly hair called Miss Pears.

0:41:350:41:40

-Before that,

-it was a picture of bubbles.

0:41:400:41:43

-The first was a little boy

-sitting down.

0:41:430:41:46

-Pears dates back to 1789.

0:41:460:41:50

-They had a factory on Oxford Street

-in London.

0:41:500:41:54

-At that time, women bleached

-their skin with arsenic and lead.

0:41:540:41:59

-Pears, himself,

-realized that this was wrong...

0:41:590:42:03

-..and that we should use glycerine

-to stay healthy.

0:42:030:42:06

-These women

-were poisoning themselves!

0:42:070:42:09

-People held it up to the light

-as it was see through and pure.

0:42:100:42:14

-It's also great for any stray hairs

-around the eyebrow area.

0:42:140:42:18

-It will keep it in place.

0:42:180:42:21

-We move to a favourite

-with the lads.

0:42:210:42:24

-The RAF from World War II

-were known as the Brylcreem Boys.

0:42:240:42:28

-They liked that parting

-in their hair.

0:42:290:42:32

-It's back in fashion thanks

-to the resurgence of the quiff.

0:42:320:42:36

-It's thanks to the footballers.

0:42:360:42:38

-It's thanks to the footballers.

-

-Yes, it's all about looking stylish.

0:42:380:42:40

-Next, we have Yardley from 1770.

0:42:410:42:44

-It was very popular

-during World War II.

0:42:440:42:47

-It was a time of rationing.

0:42:470:42:49

-People didn't have the money

-to spend on perfume.

0:42:490:42:53

-Yardley gave you

-that element of style.

0:42:530:42:57

-Mam-gu smelt of Yardley

-and Dat-cu stank of moth balls!

0:42:570:43:01

-But he wore his Brylcreem!

0:43:010:43:03

-But he wore his Brylcreem!

-

-Yes, exactly.

0:43:030:43:04

-We have Chanel No 5.

0:43:040:43:06

-It was the only thing that

-Marilyn Monroe would wear to bed.

0:43:060:43:10

-Coco Chanel wanted a perfume

-that lasted all day...

0:43:100:43:14

-..as opposed to

-the weak citrus scents.

0:43:150:43:17

-Her perfumer, Ernest Beaux,

-made ten versions.

0:43:180:43:21

-They went from No 1 to No 5

-and No 20 to No 24.

0:43:210:43:24

-She chose No 5 as it was her lucky

-number and it was very successful.

0:43:240:43:29

-My mother's favourite

-is the Youth Dew by Estee Lauder.

0:43:290:43:33

-Yes, it's from 1953.

0:43:330:43:35

-She was about 40 years old

-at the time.

0:43:350:43:38

-She went to Sachs

-with about four bottles of cream...

0:43:390:43:42

-..but nobody was interested in it.

0:43:430:43:45

-It fell on the floor and filled the

-beauty department with this aroma...

0:43:460:43:51

-..and it sold!

0:43:510:43:52

-We finish with "splash it all over"

-and Henry Cooper and Brut 33.

0:43:530:43:58

-These have changed a bit

-but are still quality products.

0:43:580:44:02

-It's great to know that Brut

-and Old Spice are still available.

0:44:020:44:07

-I can smell the Estee Lauder on you.

0:44:070:44:10

-Yes, I'm wearing it now

-and I wear it every day.

0:44:100:44:13

-Thank you, Marion.

0:44:130:44:14

-Next, we venture

-to the West End in London...

0:44:160:44:19

-..to meet a Pembrokeshire girl...

0:44:190:44:22

-..who is part of the orchestra

-in the musical of Aladdin.

0:44:220:44:26

-This is the story of Nerys Richards

-in the West End.

0:44:260:44:29

-How does it feel to be playing in

-such a big show at the West End?

0:44:360:44:41

-We are right in the centre,

-in Soho on Old Compton Street.

0:44:410:44:45

-I sometimes think I'd like

-to work somewhere a bit quieter.

0:44:450:44:50

-Every night, I travel in on the Tube

-with my cello.

0:44:500:44:54

-It doesn't feel like coming to work

-because I love it so much.

0:44:540:44:59

-The music is great

-and my part on the cello is good.

0:44:590:45:04

-I play it almost every night

-so I have to like it!

0:45:050:45:08

-I also have a couple of solos.

0:45:080:45:12

-It's very interesting.

0:45:120:45:15

-The film is very magical.

0:45:170:45:21

-Does that come across on stage?

0:45:210:45:23

-Does that come across on stage?

-

-Definitely.

0:45:230:45:24

-We feel it in the pit because

-the music is quite magical too.

0:45:240:45:29

-On this side of the pit,

-we have violin 1 and violin 2...

0:45:330:45:39

-..and I'm over here on my cello.

0:45:390:45:41

-There's a grand piano over here...

0:45:410:45:45

-..a double bass and a keyboard.

0:45:450:45:48

-How many are in the orchestra?

0:45:480:45:49

-How many are in the orchestra?

-

-There are 15 of us.

0:45:490:45:51

-You are busy at the theatre

-but what else are you up to?

0:45:590:46:03

-I work with the English National

-Opera and did Tosca last Saturday.

0:46:030:46:07

-Last week, I did Ibiza Classics

-with Pete Tong!

0:46:080:46:11

-That's a bit different to Disney

-but I enjoy the variety.

0:46:110:46:15

-You also work with Radio 1.

0:46:150:46:17

-I have to get up early on Monday

-to go to Maida Vale...

0:46:170:46:22

-..to record with Olly Murs

-for the Radio 1 Live Lounge...

0:46:220:46:27

-..and then I'm with Graham Norton

-in the evening.

0:46:270:46:31

-You are quite busy.

0:46:310:46:32

-You are quite busy.

-

-That's the spice of life!

0:46:320:46:34

-You also have a baby.

0:46:350:46:36

-Yes, my daughter is 18 months old

-and called Seren Haf.

0:46:370:46:40

-She's already had

-one harp lesson from me!

0:46:410:46:43

-What's coming up in 2017?

0:46:440:46:47

-I'll be here for at least a year.

0:46:470:46:49

-They're even saying five years

-because it is so sold out.

0:46:500:46:54

-It's quite tiring looking after

-the little one.

0:46:550:46:58

-That's how I spend my day

-and come to work when she's in bed.

0:46:580:47:03

-It's a good balance.

0:47:030:47:05

-This place will be packed within the

-hour so thanks for chatting with me.

0:47:050:47:10

-Thank you.

0:47:100:47:12

-# Never had a friend like me #

0:47:140:47:16

-Good luck to Nerys.

0:47:190:47:21

-That's all we've got time for today.

0:47:210:47:24

-The last hour has flown by!

0:47:240:47:26

-I'll be back next week.

0:47:260:47:29

-Until then,

-keep practicing your Welsh.

0:47:290:47:32

-It's important to try

-and have a lot of fun too.

0:47:320:47:36

-Enjoy the remainder of the weekend

-and a very good morning to you all.
