0:00:540:00:55

-The crowds flocked here

-to enjoy the competitions.

0:00:560:00:59

-Welcome to the Show. Thankfully,

-the temperature has begun to fall.

0:01:030:01:08

-It's been the hottest day

-of the year.

0:01:080:01:10

-According to some, it's the hottest

-day in Llanelwedd for a decade.

0:01:100:01:14

-The challenge today was to stay cool

-for the animals, competitors...

0:01:140:01:19

-..and the thousands of visitors.

0:01:190:01:21

-If the heat was sizzling,

-the competitions were hotter still.

0:01:220:01:27

-Stay with us for an hour

-of highlights from Tuesday.

0:01:270:01:31

-On tonight's programme, the Team

-of Five Giants fill the Main Ring.

0:01:380:01:43

-We see the best

-of the dairy cattle too.

0:01:430:01:46

-The noisy fur and feather shed.

0:01:470:01:49

-Some colour

-from the horticulture section.

0:01:500:01:53

-We'll meet a few characters too.

0:01:540:01:57

-Tuesday is the day for the cattle.

0:02:000:02:03

-The main headlines

-are sure to happen here.

0:02:030:02:06

-The dairy cattle

-were first up this morning.

0:02:060:02:10

-The Jerseys are up first.

-Which one is going to win?

0:02:190:02:23

-This class

-is of the highest standard.

0:02:230:02:27

-Look at these Jerseys.

0:02:280:02:30

-They're aiming for perfection

-every time they come out.

0:02:300:02:34

-Yes, and these are

-of the best possible standard.

0:02:340:02:37

-Years ago, we'd see a little bit of

-weaknesses in some of their backs.

0:02:370:02:42

-Yes.

0:02:420:02:43

-Yes.

-

-But their strength is very good.

0:02:430:02:45

-Here we go. Nantybwla has won it.

0:02:460:02:49

-So, the Jersey Champion,

-Erie Baywatch Grove...

0:02:510:02:54

-..is owned by

-Mr & Mrs E M & E & I Morgan.

0:02:540:02:57

-Next in the ring

-was the Ayrshire Championship.

0:03:000:03:03

-P & S Williams's cow, Willhome

-Gold Moppit 2, won first prize.

0:03:030:03:08

-In the Shorthorn

-Dairy Championship...

0:03:100:03:13

-..Ian and Eiddwen Edwards's cow,

-Gelli Retinue Jill...

0:03:130:03:17

-..took first prize.

0:03:170:03:18

-Here are the Holsteins.

0:03:220:03:25

-How is it looking here?

0:03:250:03:27

-I've been coming to the Show for

-years and seen all kinds of cattle.

0:03:270:03:33

-I have to admit, the standard of

-the Holsteins this year is amazing.

0:03:330:03:39

-The cream has risen to the top

-in every class.

0:03:400:03:43

-It can go any way

-because they're all very good.

0:03:440:03:49

-The judge is about

-to deliver his adjudication.

0:03:500:03:53

-He's facing a challenge.

0:03:550:03:56

-He's deliberated for a while

-in some of the classes.

0:03:570:03:59

-It's a very healthy situation.

0:04:000:04:02

-However,

-I doubt everyone would agree.

0:04:020:04:05

-His decision

-is the one that counts today.

0:04:050:04:08

-She's won it.

0:04:080:04:10

-She's a good cow.

0:04:130:04:16

-She is indeed.

0:04:160:04:17

-Iwan Rhys Morgan is the owner of

-Nobold Windbrook Jean...

0:04:180:04:21

-..the Holstein champion.

0:04:220:04:23

-She moves on to compete for the

-Supreme Dairy Championship tomorrow.

0:04:240:04:28

-Representing the Brown Swiss

-tomorrow will be today's champion.

0:04:320:04:37

-Hollysprings Sunny Silver

-is owned by Stephen Jones.

0:04:370:04:41

-We'll see which one

-takes it tomorrow.

0:04:410:04:44

-I'm in the Fur & Feather section...

0:04:520:04:55

-..to see the best birds

-at the Show this year.

0:04:550:04:58

-What's so special about

-the Show for you this year?

0:05:060:05:09

-It's the first year

-I've been the chief steward here.

0:05:090:05:12

-Is it a lot of work?

0:05:130:05:13

-Is it a lot of work?

-

-It is.

0:05:130:05:14

-For how long have you been competing

-with the chickens?

0:05:150:05:18

-Over 40 years now.

0:05:180:05:20

-You're a dab hand now.

0:05:210:05:23

-You're a dab hand now.

-

-I learn something new every day.

0:05:230:05:25

-What have you brought this year?

0:05:250:05:27

-This Black Minorca hen

-won the Best Light Breed in Show.

0:05:270:05:33

-She's a laying hen.

0:05:340:05:37

-She has a long back.

0:05:370:05:39

-The Black Minorca is meant to look

-like a hen out in the rain...

0:05:390:05:42

-..with her tail back

-and with a long body.

0:05:430:05:46

-The white ear lobe

-is meant to be almond-shaped...

0:05:460:05:49

-..and the comb should be red.

0:05:490:05:51

-I'm with Ifan Thomas.

-How's it going?

0:05:540:05:58

-It's going well.

0:05:580:06:00

0:06:050:06:07

-Dandy hens.

0:06:070:06:09

-I can see you've won something.

0:06:090:06:12

-I got third with one of the hens.

0:06:120:06:14

-How long

-have you been exhibiting these?

0:06:150:06:18

-A year. I've been exhibiting them

-at local shows.

0:06:180:06:23

-Is it going well?

0:06:230:06:25

-It's a new experience

-to be among high-standard stock.

0:06:250:06:28

-Does it make you

-want to own different ones?

0:06:280:06:32

-Yes, I'm more interested

-in different breeds.

0:06:320:06:36

-They're different

-to what I have at home.

0:06:360:06:39

-Show me what you've won at the Show.

0:06:430:06:46

-I've had a first prize

-with a cockerel.

0:06:460:06:50

-It's the first time

-he's been exhibited.

0:06:500:06:52

-He's handsome.

0:06:530:06:54

-I'm happy with that result.

0:06:540:06:56

-What else do we have?

0:06:560:06:58

-A Gold Dutch hen.

0:06:580:07:00

-It's the third time

-she's been exhibited...

0:07:000:07:03

-..and the third time she's won.

0:07:030:07:05

-She enjoys coming to the Show.

0:07:050:07:08

-She's one of the best, is she?

0:07:080:07:12

-She's one of the best I've reared.

0:07:120:07:14

-She's been with me

-all over the country.

0:07:140:07:17

-Do you get an egg from her

-every day?

0:07:170:07:20

-No, you don't get many eggs

-from her.

0:07:200:07:22

-Just the Show.

0:07:220:07:23

-Just the Show.

-

-She's a queen at home now!

0:07:230:07:25

-From all the poultry competing...

0:07:290:07:32

-..the Supreme Champion went

-to the O'Learys from Abergavenny...

0:07:320:07:36

-..with their Australorp hen.

0:07:360:07:38

-Hello, I'm Katie. I'm exhibiting

-beef at the Show today.

0:07:520:07:56

-Twitter says today

-is the hottest day of the year.

0:07:560:08:00

-That makes exhibiting cattle

-hard work.

0:08:010:08:04

-We keep them cool with fans

-and by washing them.

0:08:040:08:08

-I enjoy the Show

-and the atmosphere is great.

0:08:100:08:14

-There's fun to be had at night!

0:08:140:08:16

-It's been boiling hot at the Show.

0:08:270:08:31

-It's nice to shelter

-from the hot sun for a little while.

0:08:310:08:35

-Someone who's not been

-as lucky as me is Catrin...

0:08:350:08:38

-..who was in the heat of battle

-in the Sheep Ring.

0:08:390:08:41

-Welcome to the second day

-of competition in the Sheep Ring.

0:08:480:08:52

-First up are the Charollais.

0:08:520:08:54

-It's the class for rams,

-two years and over.

0:08:540:08:57

-Keeping a close eye

-on proceedings...

0:08:580:09:00

-..is the auctioneer from Llandovery,

-Derfel Harries.

0:09:000:09:03

-Welcome.

0:09:040:09:04

-Welcome.

-

-Good morning.

0:09:040:09:06

-You've had a look at them.

0:09:060:09:08

-What are the features

-of a two-year-old Charollais ram?

0:09:080:09:12

-What will the judge be looking for?

0:09:120:09:14

-The purpose of the breed

-is to produce lamb meat.

0:09:140:09:18

-He's looking for a well-balanced

-animal from his nose to his tail.

0:09:190:09:24

-The judge has made his decision.

0:09:260:09:31

-Mr A P & A J James have won it.

0:09:320:09:36

-They come from Shropshire.

0:09:360:09:38

-The Ingrams from Aberdeenshire

-are second.

0:09:400:09:44

-The Charollais sheep two years old

-and over are next to be judged.

0:09:480:09:54

-The judge has been deliberating.

0:09:540:09:57

-He's drawn up a shortlist

-and gone through them many times.

0:09:570:10:01

-It's very tight

-between the top three.

0:10:010:10:05

-It's down to the judge's taste.

0:10:050:10:08

-The family who bred

-the 2014 champion are in the lead.

0:10:090:10:13

-The family who bred the 2015

-champion are second and third.

0:10:130:10:17

-These are stock of a high standard.

0:10:170:10:19

-These are stock of a high standard.

-

-The highest standard.

0:10:190:10:21

-Has he decided?

0:10:220:10:24

-Yes, Adrian Davies, Glanbrydan,

-Manordeilo, has taken it.

0:10:240:10:30

-We've reached

-the Charollais breed championship.

0:10:340:10:38

-It's been a great exhibit

-for the breed.

0:10:380:10:42

-We have a sheep and ram

-in the final.

0:10:420:10:46

-The sheep's a character.

0:10:460:10:48

-She wants to show the judge

-she's here.

0:10:480:10:51

-She's showing herself.

0:10:510:10:52

-The message she's giving

-is there's no holding her back.

0:10:530:10:56

-Adrian Davies' sheep

-is being challenged by the ram.

0:10:560:11:01

-He's owned by Oliver James

-from Shropshire.

0:11:020:11:05

-The judge's task

-has been a hard one...

0:11:060:11:08

-..John Geldard from Cumbria.

0:11:080:11:11

-He's been fair too,

-he's taken his time.

0:11:120:11:14

-He has.

0:11:150:11:16

-Adrian from Glanbrydan, Manordeilo,

-Llandeilo, has won it.

0:11:160:11:20

-Adrian, huge congratulations.

0:11:210:11:25

-I'm speechless.

0:11:250:11:26

-It's so hot.

0:11:280:11:29

-It's so hot!

0:11:290:11:30

-It's such a tough job.

0:11:310:11:32

-To win it twice is just fantastic.

0:11:340:11:37

-I'm Jim Johnson from Dre-fach,

-Felindre.

0:12:230:12:26

-I come to the Show

-to exhibit these coracles.

0:12:260:12:30

-When I was at school, I was

-friends with Denzil from Cenarth.

0:12:300:12:34

-Denzil's family made coracles.

0:12:340:12:38

-Denzil showed me how to use one.

0:12:380:12:41

-At that time,

-Cenarth was an important place.

0:12:410:12:47

-Farmers brought their sheep there

-to wash in the river.

0:12:470:12:50

-We'd go out in a coracle...

0:12:500:12:52

-..to ensure that the sheep

-were not carried away by the flow.

0:12:530:12:56

-That's my first memory

-of using a coracle from day to day.

0:12:570:13:02

-I've been coming to the Show

-for 30 years.

0:13:060:13:10

-I've enjoyed coming here for years.

0:13:110:13:13

-The horses are shining

-in the Main Ring.

0:13:180:13:21

-There's no sight quite like it.

0:13:220:13:24

-The best of the Welsh breeds

-were on display today.

0:13:240:13:27

-Sections A, C and D

-were being judged.

0:13:270:13:30

-Heledd Cynwal, Rob Jones and

-Owen Griffiths were commentating.

0:13:310:13:35

-We join them for the Section C

-young stock Championship.

0:13:350:13:40

-We've had some great winners

-this morning.

0:13:420:13:44

-That means

-it's time for the Championship.

0:13:440:13:48

-We've got the Champion

-and Reserve from each class...

0:13:480:13:51

-..in Section C

-Welsh Ponies Cob Type.

0:13:520:13:54

-We've been looking

-at the younger stock all morning.

0:13:540:13:57

-We have to mention there are four

-winners in this section under Rob.

0:14:000:14:06

-His stallion

-is the father of those four.

0:14:060:14:09

-That's a difficult thing.

0:14:100:14:11

-To be objective.

0:14:120:14:13

-There's no rule against exhibiting

-something that comes...

0:14:130:14:17

-..from one of the judge's

-bloodlines.

0:14:170:14:20

-As a judge, you have to make sure

-you can explain...

0:14:200:14:23

-..why you've made your choice.

0:14:230:14:25

-Looking at this winner, I think

-he's made the right decision.

0:14:270:14:31

-They are exceptional.

0:14:310:14:33

-The judge is discussing his choices

-with the stewards, Delyth Simons.

0:14:360:14:40

-The hat is off.

0:14:400:14:41

-The hat is off.

-

-It's been removed!

0:14:410:14:42

-I think it's Ryan Wilson

-and Troed-Y-Mynydd Trouble.

0:14:430:14:46

-He won the colt class this morning.

0:14:460:14:49

-I think he's a yearling colt.

0:14:490:14:51

-He's owned by Anthony McDonald...

0:14:510:14:53

-..sired by Moorcroft Master Tom

-and out of Troed-Y-Mynydd Temptress.

0:14:530:14:57

-He's now won the best of the best

-if you will.

0:14:580:15:02

-He's won the Welsh Pony (Cob Type)

-Championship for young stock.

0:15:030:15:06

-Congratulations to them.

0:15:060:15:08

-In the northern side of the ring,

-the Section D...

0:15:130:15:16

-..Cob Type Championship

-for young stock was taking place.

0:15:170:15:20

-The morning winners

-returned to the Main Ring.

0:15:210:15:24

-But which one was the winner?

0:15:240:15:26

-This is the all-important moment

-for these horses.

0:15:270:15:30

-Dyffryngwy Welsh Charisma. David

-Oliver, the exhibitor is well known.

0:15:330:15:38

-Fair play to him. He's got enough

-stamina to match the horse.

0:15:390:15:43

-Dorian Lloyd, the blacksmith from

-Llanfechain, with Perthog Doli.

0:15:470:15:51

-She is a three-year-old filly.

0:15:530:15:56

-I think Arwyn is now looking at

-the yearling colt, Perthog Game On.

0:15:560:16:01

-He's reared by Dorian Lloyd

-but is owned by Gareth Andrew.

0:16:010:16:05

-He's been sold.

0:16:050:16:06

-What an achievement. Two Perthog

-horses in this championship.

0:16:060:16:11

-This isn't the first time

-he's managed that.

0:16:110:16:14

-Dorian owned the Champion

-and Reserve Champion last year.

0:16:140:16:19

-Now then, lads,

-what do we fancy up in our tower?

0:16:200:16:24

-I think it's Cascob Brenin Dafydd

-for me.

0:16:280:16:31

-I enjoyed the run

-of Dyffryngwy Welsh Charisma.

0:16:320:16:35

-She went quite well.

0:16:360:16:37

-I just want to be different to Rob.

0:16:380:16:40

-Heledd?

0:16:400:16:41

-I was going to go for her too.

0:16:410:16:43

-Coppathorne Abigail caught my eye.

0:16:440:16:47

-That's a good choice.

0:16:470:16:49

-We'll see now.

0:16:490:16:51

-Here we go, the hat is off.

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd.

0:17:130:17:18

-This three-year-old colt

-at his best in the Main Ring.

0:17:190:17:23

-He's showing his ribbons proudly

-to the supporters.

0:17:240:17:29

-Brenda Williams, first of all,

-congratulations on your stall.

0:17:480:17:54

-They're worth seeing.

0:17:540:17:56

-They're worth seeing.

-

-Thank you.

0:17:560:17:57

-How many do you have at the Show?

0:17:570:17:59

-How many do you have at the Show?

-

-Around seventy.

0:17:590:18:00

-How many do you have in all?

0:18:020:18:04

-I hear you have a houseful

-at home on Anglesey.

0:18:040:18:07

-Around 450.

0:18:070:18:08

-When did the obsession

-with these plants start?

0:18:080:18:13

-Ten years ago,

-when I went on holiday.

0:18:130:18:17

-I loved seeing cacti

-on both sides of the road.

0:18:170:18:22

-I brought this big one home

-from Tenerife.

0:18:230:18:27

-What's its name?

-Echinocactus grusonii.

0:18:270:18:31

-It caught your eye immediately.

0:18:320:18:34

-It caught your eye immediately.

-

-It did.

0:18:340:18:36

-When did you assemble this

-collection? Over a number of years?

0:18:360:18:41

-Yes.

0:18:420:18:43

-It's gone from one to 450.

0:18:430:18:48

-You must have a sizeable house.

0:18:490:18:51

-No, not really.

0:18:520:18:53

-They're all in a greenhouse

-in the summer.

0:18:540:18:57

-They come indoors over winter.

0:18:580:19:00

-They're quite easy to look after.

0:19:010:19:03

-They only need to be watered

-once a fortnight.

0:19:040:19:07

-Is that all? Gosh.

0:19:070:19:09

-They're not watered at all

-between November and March.

0:19:090:19:15

-Gosh.

0:19:150:19:16

-This is a pretty one.

0:19:170:19:19

-Mammillaria matudae cristata.

0:19:190:19:23

-It looks like a snake.

0:19:230:19:25

-It looks like a snake.

-

-It does look like a snake.

0:19:250:19:27

-There's a big one in the centre.

0:19:280:19:30

-It looks like the ones

-you see on old Westerns.

0:19:300:19:34

-It does.

0:19:340:19:35

-For me, that's the typical image

-of a cactus.

0:19:360:19:39

-Yes.

0:19:400:19:41

-Your exhibit is worth seeing.

0:19:410:19:44

-You've won the gold medal

-at the Show.

0:19:440:19:48

-A large gold medal.

0:19:480:19:50

-How big an honour was it to win?

0:19:510:19:52

-How big an honour was it to win?

-

-It was a real honour.

0:19:520:19:54

-Is it the first time

-you've competed in the Show?

0:19:540:19:57

-It's the third time I've competed.

0:19:580:20:01

-Is it the first time

-you've won the gold medal?

0:20:010:20:04

-The second time.

0:20:040:20:05

-So you'll come back next year

-for the triple crown.

0:20:050:20:08

-Congratulations.

-As I said, they're worth seeing.

0:20:080:20:11

-Well done. Thanks for the chat.

0:20:120:20:14

-Thank you.

0:20:140:20:15

-This is

-the FitzHugh Beef Championship.

0:20:310:20:34

-We're looking for the best pair -

-a male and female.

0:20:340:20:39

-There is representation

-from every breed.

0:20:390:20:41

-Paul Gendreau has selected 14 pairs.

0:20:470:20:51

-He's exploring them in more detail.

0:20:510:20:55

-Just to remind you, Paul Gendreau

-is an auctioneer at Newark Market.

0:20:550:21:01

-He was Auctioneer of the Year

-in Britain so he's quite a man.

0:21:010:21:05

-I think he's got a difficult job.

-There are some fantastic pairs here.

0:21:050:21:10

-Yes, it's quite an image

-seeing them all in a row like this.

0:21:100:21:13

-They're worth seeing.

0:21:140:21:16

-Personally, the pair of Charolais

-have caught my eye.

0:21:180:21:22

-I also think the Limousins

-are strong contenders.

0:21:220:21:26

-He's pulling the Herefords out.

-I like these.

0:21:260:21:29

-The cow isn't quite perfect.

0:21:290:21:32

-The Charolais are following them.

0:21:320:21:35

-It looks like

-he's pulling them all out.

0:21:350:21:38

-The Blues are a great pair.

-A young bull and a young heifer.

0:21:410:21:44

-He's pulled eight out now.

-He's halved them.

0:21:460:21:49

-Yes, he has. They must be of a very

-high standard. He pulled a lot out.

0:21:500:21:54

-He's a fairly tall man.

0:21:570:21:58

-You have to be tall

-to inspect some of these.

0:21:590:22:01

-The Simmentals are especially big.

0:22:020:22:05

-The Simmentals are out. Very good.

0:22:050:22:07

-The Blues are out.

0:22:080:22:09

-The Lims are out.

0:22:100:22:12

-It won't be much longer now.

0:22:140:22:15

-The Charolais are out.

0:22:160:22:19

-These Lims look good.

0:22:230:22:25

-Here they are! Yes!

-The Simmentals are very good.

0:22:270:22:31

-The Simmentals won it.

0:22:330:22:35

-The Limousins were second.

0:22:380:22:40

-But it's the Woods family

-who are celebrating tonight.

0:22:430:22:46

-At the Show's office today,

-the RWAS' awards ceremony...

0:22:520:22:56

-..recognized the work

-of farmers of all ages.

0:22:560:22:59

-It was nice to see the young ones

-being honoured.

0:22:590:23:02

-Hello, my name is Cennydd.

0:23:060:23:08

-Phillips Agricultural Award.

0:23:080:23:12

-of my course.

0:23:300:23:33

-to do work experience with Waitrose.

0:23:330:23:38

-That experience will be huge for me.

0:23:380:23:40

-I'll get an insight

-into the industry.

0:23:400:23:43

-My name is Aled Davies.

0:23:430:23:45

-I'm a student at Gelli Aur,

-Coleg Sir Gar.

0:23:450:23:48

-I've won Student of the Year...

0:23:480:23:50

-..and The Gwili Jones Travel

-Scholarship to go to New Zealand.

0:23:510:23:54

-I'm proud I was nominated and feel

-honoured that I won the titles.

0:23:550:23:59

-Join us after the break when we look

-back at the Team of Five...

0:24:030:24:07

-..and the memorable day

-for judge Dai Lewis.

-Welcome back.

0:25:190:25:21

-Today's main event

-was the Cattle's Team of Five.

0:25:220:25:27

-The judge this year

-was the show legend...

0:25:270:25:29

-..commentator turned judge,

-Dai Lewis.

0:25:290:25:32

-I started with the Show in 1974.

0:25:480:25:51

-I was a commentator

-in the cattle section.

0:25:510:25:54

-I have been commentating on this

-competition for nearly 25 years.

0:25:540:26:00

-It's a wonderful sight

-seeing the teams of five...

0:26:000:26:04

-..from all the different breeds

-in the main ring.

0:26:040:26:06

-It's really worth seeing.

0:26:070:26:09

-Which one has taken it?

0:26:130:26:15

-The Limousins win!

0:26:150:26:17

-The Limousins have won it.

0:26:240:26:27

-The standard is outstanding in this

-year's Team of Five competition.

0:26:340:26:38

-Yes, it's a good competition.

0:26:380:26:40

-Quite a few of the breeds

-have a very consistent team.

0:26:400:26:44

-Of course, Dai Lewis has watched

-this competition over the years.

0:26:440:26:49

-He knows exactly what is required

-for a team of five!

0:26:490:26:52

-I can see the Charolais team

-there now.

0:26:520:26:55

-In my opinion,

-the Charolais cows this year...

0:26:550:26:58

-..haven't been of the size

-you would expect from the breed.

0:26:580:27:01

-The five chosen for the team...

0:27:020:27:03

-..can cover a lot of ground

-with those feet!

0:27:040:27:06

-John, you know these very well.

-These are the Limousins.

0:27:070:27:12

-Once again this year,

-there were plenty of good entries.

0:27:130:27:18

-The quality is high

-from top to bottom.

0:27:200:27:22

-Many of the exhibitors are from

-Wales and they've done really well.

0:27:220:27:26

-The Simmental team is passing us

-now. It's a good group of five.

0:27:260:27:32

-The one on the outer edge

-isn't quite as good as the others.

0:27:320:27:35

-But the bull and the cow won the

-FitzHugh pair competition earlier.

0:27:360:27:40

-They were an amazing pair.

0:27:400:27:41

-The cow was reserve champion

-yesterday.

0:27:420:27:44

-Dai Lewis, the judge, has had

-a chance to walk back and forth.

0:27:440:27:49

-He's done his work very thoroughly.

0:27:490:27:52

-He went through them quite quickly

-when they walked around the ring.

0:27:520:27:56

-But he's started to select

-some of them now.

0:27:560:27:59

-The Lims are out.

0:27:590:28:00

-The Simmentals as well.

0:28:000:28:02

-The Blondes have been picked too.

0:28:020:28:04

-And the Herefords as well.

0:28:040:28:06

-The Blues.

0:28:070:28:08

-The Blues.

-

-The British Blues.

0:28:080:28:10

-He's walking back and forth.

0:28:130:28:15

-He's now behind the Blues.

0:28:150:28:17

-He's about to say something.

0:28:170:28:19

-Which is going to win it?

0:28:220:28:24

-Good afternoon.

0:28:270:28:29

-It's a great honour to be here.

0:28:300:28:33

-I've spent the best part of 24 years

-commentating on this competition.

0:28:340:28:40

-Isn't it easy

-up in the tower there?!

0:28:400:28:43

-I've chosen the winner

-on about 15 times...

0:28:440:28:47

-..in those past 24 years.

0:28:480:28:50

-But today,

-I find it very, very difficult...

0:28:500:28:53

-..because of the standard

-of the stock.

0:28:530:28:56

-I will now go and tap out my winner.

-Thank you.

0:28:570:29:01

-What a speech. Many thanks

-to Dai Lewis for his words there.

0:29:070:29:11

-I wonder who is going to win.

-That's what everyone wants to know.

0:29:110:29:16

-He walks with purpose.

0:29:170:29:18

-He walks with purpose.

-

-He does!

0:29:180:29:20

-There is so much excitement

-here in the cattle ring.

0:29:220:29:25

-Dai Lewis's voice has been

-so familiar to us over the years.

0:29:260:29:32

-He's now been given the main role

-in this show.

0:29:320:29:37

-He will choose

-the champion Team of Five in 2016.

0:29:370:29:40

-Where will he go?

-Which is going to win?

0:29:410:29:43

-There are some excellent teams.

0:29:460:29:48

-As he said, it's a matter of fancy.

0:29:480:29:51

-He's building the tension

-by walking back and forth.

0:29:520:29:55

-He said in his speech that he's

-chosen the champions 15 times!

0:29:570:30:02

-The Lims are the winners!

0:30:020:30:04

-Fair play.

0:30:040:30:06

-I think he's going

-for the British Blue next.

0:30:100:30:14

-It looks like it.

0:30:140:30:16

-Yes, it's the British Blue.

-They are the Reserve Champions.

0:30:160:30:20

-Fantastic.

0:30:210:30:23

-You can see the power of the Lims.

0:30:230:30:26

-John, as chairman of the breed

-society, you must be over the moon.

0:30:260:30:30

-Of course. It's the highlight

-of the show for us.

0:30:300:30:33

-This is a familiar feeling -

-interviewing you...

0:30:350:30:38

-..after you've won

-one of the main championships!

0:30:380:30:40

-It's a great honour to win and even

-participate in this competition.

0:30:410:30:45

-What about the team?

-What made it so special?

0:30:450:30:48

-I think the quality of the team

-throughout.

0:30:480:30:51

-They were all very much of a type.

0:30:510:30:53

-Very square across the face,

-nice graduation down.

0:30:530:30:56

-A lot of power in the team.

0:30:560:30:58

-You've won it

-three years on the trot.

0:30:580:31:00

-Amazing feeling for you.

0:31:000:31:02

-It's a real honour

-at the best show in the world.

0:31:030:31:06

-There's something to entertain

-everybody in the Main Ring.

0:31:220:31:26

-From the energetic Cossacks to the

-Dr Alban Davies Trophy procession.

0:31:270:31:32

-This year's champion

-is this muck spreader.

0:31:370:31:41

-Congratulations.

0:31:410:31:43

-There is something for everyone

-on the Showground.

0:31:500:31:54

-The South Glamorgan Hall is full

-to the brim of artwork and crafts.

0:31:540:31:58

-There are wonderful cakes and a

-little something to quench a thirst!

0:31:580:32:03

-It's such a wonderful day

-here at the Show.

0:32:040:32:08

-What better

-than a little glass of red wine?

0:32:080:32:11

-Neville Jones from Llanilar, cheers!

0:32:110:32:14

-You've been competing here.

0:32:140:32:17

-You've had success

-with this red wine.

0:32:180:32:21

-Yes, I came second this year.

0:32:210:32:24

-I was first last year

-but let's not worry about that!

0:32:240:32:27

-The important thing is to take part.

0:32:280:32:30

-Let's finish this up then.

0:32:310:32:33

-Look out! OK, then.

0:32:330:32:35

-We'll be a bit shaky at the end.

0:32:350:32:38

-It's quite dry

-but I think that's how you like it.

0:32:380:32:41

-Yes, it's ideal to have with a meal.

0:32:410:32:42

-Yes, it's ideal to have with a meal.

-

-There's another one here.

0:32:420:32:44

-Neville,

-this wine was awarded second prize.

0:32:490:32:52

-What is it? It has a fine bouquet.

0:32:520:32:55

-It's elderflower.

0:32:560:32:57

-If you can pick the flower

-in full bloom...

0:32:580:33:04

-..and I was very lucky to find some

-on a fine summer's day.

0:33:040:33:09

-It's lovely and you can smell

-its wonderful flowers.

0:33:090:33:14

-I took the flowers home.

0:33:140:33:16

-Is that what makes the difference?

0:33:180:33:19

-Is that what makes the difference?

-

-Yes, it gives the fine bouquet.

0:33:190:33:20

-This is quite sweet, I'd say.

0:33:210:33:22

-Yes, it is.

0:33:230:33:23

-Yes, it is.

-

-Let's try some. Is it strong?

0:33:230:33:24

-You'll be speaking French

-before the end!

0:33:260:33:28

-You're starting to push the pace

-now. You've finished that already!

0:33:290:33:34

-You had more than me!

0:33:340:33:35

-More wine, please!

0:33:380:33:39

-More wine, please!

-

-Come on, bar staff.

0:33:390:33:41

-After the break we

-visit the Sheep Ring with Catrin...

0:33:490:33:53

-..see the energetic tasks

-taking place in the forestry area...

0:33:530:33:57

-..and meet quite a character!

0:34:440:34:47

-I'm surprised at how many stay

-here and don't go to the Show.

0:34:480:34:51

-Luckily, this year the sun is out

-and we're all having fun.

0:34:520:34:57

-The sun is very strong today.

0:34:580:35:02

-Make sure you drink enough water.

0:35:020:35:05

-There's free water up there

-on the Village Green.

0:35:060:35:08

-Make sure you gingers

-wear plenty of suntan lotion.

0:35:090:35:13

-Mam won't be pleased.

0:35:150:35:17

-I'm also a member of Pontsian YFC

-in Ceredigion.

0:35:170:35:21

-In the rally, I don't know how...

0:35:230:35:25

-..but I won the Top Of The Pops

-solo competition.

0:35:260:35:29

-I had to come up here.

0:35:290:35:30

-This is my final year in the YFC.

-I'll be too old after that.

0:35:310:35:34

-My hair is disappearing

-and I have a beard.

0:35:340:35:37

-That's evidence

-I'm getting too old.

0:35:370:35:41

-There's excitement

-all over the Showground.

0:35:510:35:55

-Here's a clue for you

-about where we're going next.

0:35:560:35:58

-Yes, it's over to Catrin

-in the sheep ring.

0:36:000:36:02

-We've now reached...

0:36:150:36:16

-..the Any Other Pure Native

-Upland Breed Of Sheep class.

0:36:170:36:22

-Different breeds

-are going head to head.

0:36:220:36:26

-They just need to be

-pure upland breeds.

0:36:260:36:28

-We have three here.

0:36:290:36:30

-Iestyn Tyne from the Lleyn Peninsula

-is helping me go through them.

0:36:300:36:34

-He might be familiar to some of you.

0:36:350:36:37

-He won the Crown

-at the Urdd Eisteddfod this year.

0:36:370:36:41

-Today, he's taking us

-through the native sheep.

0:36:410:36:44

-The class behind us

-is the ram lamb class.

0:36:450:36:48

-What do we have here?

0:36:490:36:51

-We have three Herdwick ram lambs.

0:36:510:36:56

-It's positive seeing

-more of these in this class...

0:36:570:37:01

-..especially after they became rare

-during the foot-and-mouth disaster.

0:37:010:37:06

-They come from the Lake District

-in northern England.

0:37:060:37:09

-We also have

-the North Country Cheviot.

0:37:100:37:13

-It's the upland version

-of that breed.

0:37:140:37:16

-There's an upland and lowland

-Cheviot.

0:37:170:37:20

-The Whitefaced Woodland

-is on the end.

0:37:200:37:24

-The judge is going through them.

0:37:240:37:27

-He's starting with the Herdwick

-on the far side.

0:37:270:37:31

-Tell us more

-about the history of the breed.

0:37:310:37:34

-It's an ancient breed.

0:37:340:37:35

-It's an ancient breed.

-

-It is.

0:37:350:37:36

-The word Herdwick

-comes from old English.

0:37:360:37:40

-It's a word that originates

-perhaps in the 12th century...

0:37:400:37:44

-..and refers to a piece of land

-where sheep graze.

0:37:440:37:49

-So the breed dates back a long way.

0:37:490:37:52

-The judge looks like

-he's about to place them.

0:37:540:37:57

-There are five in the class.

-We've seen them from a distance.

0:37:580:38:02

-The judge has had the opportunity

-to look at them up close...

0:38:020:38:05

-..but do some of them stand out

-for you?

0:38:050:38:08

-The one

-that's just moved to the front.

0:38:080:38:11

-He looks stronger.

0:38:110:38:13

-The white is clearer

-on his head and legs.

0:38:140:38:17

-He has a better conformation.

0:38:170:38:21

-He's a strong contender.

0:38:210:38:22

-The judge, Peter Williams

-from Monmouthshire...

0:38:230:38:26

-..has a tough task

-comparing different breeds.

0:38:260:38:30

-But he's made a decision.

0:38:300:38:32

-The Pittard family

-from Cwmbach, Aberdare, have won.

0:38:330:38:38

-Many congratulations to you.

0:38:380:38:39

-Many congratulations to you.

-

-Thank you.

0:38:390:38:40

-You have a unique breed.

0:38:400:38:42

-They're my wife's animals.

0:38:430:38:46

-We've been married

-for 34 years today.

0:38:460:38:49

-So it's a present to her.

0:38:490:38:50

-A double celebration.

0:38:510:38:53

-Reaching 34 and winning this class

-of ram lambs.

0:38:530:38:57

-Congratulations.

0:38:570:38:58

-Congratulations.

-

-Thank you.

0:38:580:38:59

-When I think of axemen,

-I think of Dafydd Cadwaladr.

0:39:360:39:39

-How are you?

0:39:390:39:40

-How are you?

-

-I'm great, fantastic.

0:39:400:39:41

-You're loving it here.

0:39:410:39:43

-There's nothing better.

-It's fantastic.

0:39:430:39:46

-You're running the event

-and helping to run it.

0:39:460:39:50

-You're also competing.

0:39:500:39:52

-Yes, I've reached

-the "Veteran" age category.

0:39:520:39:56

-I'm very young

-to have been chosen for it.

0:39:560:40:00

-I get to do one competition a day.

0:40:010:40:03

-I've come to terms with that.

0:40:040:40:06

-With this heat, it's not bad.

0:40:060:40:08

-I really admire these guys

-in this heat.

0:40:080:40:11

-They're putting everything

-into the job.

0:40:110:40:14

-It's scorching here.

0:40:140:40:15

-They're very fit.

0:40:150:40:17

-I think because these are tough

-events, you have to harden yourself.

0:40:190:40:24

-It's the same with shearing,

-you need perseverance.

0:40:240:40:27

-It's great that even

-in the extreme heat yesterday...

0:40:280:40:32

-..they could keep going even

-when it was still hot at 5.00pm.

0:40:320:40:37

-It's incredible.

0:40:370:40:40

-Dewi, you've just been competing

-in a forestry competition.

0:40:440:40:48

-I can think of few worse things

-in this heat.

0:40:480:40:51

-Yes, it's a bit of a strain today.

0:40:510:40:53

-It's strenuous in this heat.

0:40:530:40:56

-I'm not sure if it's around

-30 degrees today.

0:40:560:40:59

-It feels like it's getting hotter.

0:40:590:41:02

-Tell us a about this competition.

-What was it?

0:41:020:41:05

-In English,

-it's called a standing block.

0:41:060:41:10

-It's meant to emulate

-felling a tree.

0:41:110:41:13

-You cut to halfway from one side

-and then run around...

0:41:130:41:18

-..and cut a little higher

-from the other side.

0:41:180:41:22

-Then you drive it like that.

0:41:220:41:24

-There's no doubt

-it's a pretty tough challenge.

0:41:310:41:34

-What's the appeal for you,

-personally?

0:41:340:41:37

-It's a lot of fun.

0:41:370:41:38

-To be honest, you've got people

-from all around the UK.

0:41:380:41:42

-We've even got some from overseas.

0:41:420:41:45

-Many have come from Europe.

0:41:450:41:47

-We have one New Zealander

-and one Australian.

0:41:480:41:51

-It's like one big family.

0:41:520:41:54

-Everyone gets on together.

-Everyone helps each other.

0:41:540:41:58

-Those who start get some help from

-those who've been at it longer.

0:41:580:42:03

-Everyone likes

-to see people progress.

0:42:030:42:06

-Will you compete all summer?

0:42:060:42:08

-Will you compete all summer?

-

-What have you been doing?

0:42:080:42:09

-We had Woodfest.

-We had a one-day event here.

0:42:100:42:15

-This is the biggest event.

-It's four days.

0:42:150:42:19

-There are all types of competitions

-like this one.

0:42:190:42:24

-I think we'll be here all the way

-through until Thursday.

0:42:240:42:28

-We've got something called

-the Stihl Timbersports.

0:42:280:42:31

-My brother is a current champion.

0:42:320:42:34

-That is on the 6th of August

-somewhere near Oxford.

0:42:340:42:40

-You clearly enjoy doing this.

0:42:400:42:42

-What do you do from day to day?

0:42:420:42:44

-I work as a civil engineer.

0:42:440:42:47

-I'm currently building a bridge

-in Runcorn.

0:42:470:42:52

-I've been up there for a while.

0:42:520:42:54

-So this is a hobby.

0:42:540:42:55

-Yes.

0:42:560:42:57

-My brother started

-around a year before me.

0:42:570:43:00

-I've been behind him ever since.

0:43:000:43:02

-He wasn't too happy

-that I'd started.

0:43:030:43:06

-I played rugby for Bala.

0:43:070:43:09

-I'm in the second XV now.

-That's fine.

0:43:090:43:12

-Thanks for showing us around.

0:43:130:43:15

-And thanks for explaining more

-about the world of axemen.

0:43:150:43:19

-Dai Lewis, first of all...

0:43:320:43:33

-..congratulations on your work today

-judging the Team of Five.

0:43:330:43:37

-On a personal note,

-it was a strange feeling for me...

0:43:370:43:41

-..to watch the action

-and not hear you commentating on it.

0:43:410:43:46

-It was a bit strange for me

-hearing a different voice.

0:43:470:43:50

-Fair play to Meurig James,

-he did a very good job.

0:43:500:43:53

-How were your nerves

-before you went into the ring?

0:43:530:43:58

-I'd be lying

-if I said I had no nerves.

0:43:580:44:02

-There were five teams

-I could've chosen.

0:44:020:44:07

-The most difficult job

-was choosing out of those five.

0:44:080:44:13

-You've been commentating for years

-and been judging at local shows.

0:44:140:44:19

-How big an honour was it

-to judge here at Llanelwedd?

0:44:190:44:23

-I've been a commentator here

-for many years...

0:44:230:44:28

-..so I saw it as a huge honour

-to be in the Main Ring.

0:44:280:44:33

-I remember all the good ones

-who've been there before now.

0:44:330:44:37

-As I said, it was a huge honour.

0:44:370:44:41

-You've been an unofficial judge

-many a time.

0:44:410:44:44

-In the commentating tower over

-the years, I'd have a side-stake!

0:44:450:44:50

-I got about two-thirds right,

-15 out of 22.

0:44:510:44:57

-That's a good record!

0:44:570:44:59

-It's a small qualification

-for today.

0:44:590:45:03

-It's a very good qualification!

0:45:030:45:05

-What about the standard

-of the competition?

0:45:060:45:08

-The standard was excellent as usual.

0:45:090:45:11

-The stockmen have to be praised.

0:45:110:45:13

-Of course, every creature out there

-today had won its class yesterday.

0:45:130:45:19

-Getting a team together

-is the task today.

0:45:190:45:24

-Cattle that look like a team.

0:45:250:45:27

-There were some excellent

-individuals...

0:45:270:45:30

-..but the team

-didn't always quite match up.

0:45:300:45:33

-There were five

-extremely good teams.

0:45:330:45:37

-I could have awarded the prize

-to any of them.

0:45:370:45:40

-The Lims obviously pleased you.

0:45:400:45:41

-The Lims obviously pleased you.

-

-Yes.

0:45:410:45:42

-That's a difficult choice

-for a man...

0:45:430:45:45

-..who has always

-reared Charolais cattle.

0:45:450:45:49

-But the Lims stood out.

0:45:490:45:51

-The Blues too.

0:45:510:45:53

-It was a very close-run contest.

0:45:530:45:55

-Congratulations to you once more.

0:45:550:45:57

-Thank you.

0:45:570:45:58

-It's been an honour speaking to you

-after what you did earlier.

0:45:590:46:03

-Thank you.
