-North East Wales.

0:00:460:00:50

0:01:460:01:49

-We also visit the castle

-and St Marcella's Church.

0:01:500:01:53

-River Clwyd rises in the mountains

-near Ruthin...

0:01:570:02:00

-..and it flows down the valley,

-past Denbigh...

0:02:000:02:04

-..and the tiny city of St Asaph...

0:02:040:02:06

-..before flowing into the sea

-near Rhyl.

0:02:070:02:10

-Along the coast in towns like Rhyl,

-less than 20% of people speak Welsh.

0:02:110:02:16

-As you move up the valley into

-St Asaph, Denbigh and Ruthin...

0:02:160:02:21

-..that number rises

-to between 20% and 50%.

0:02:210:02:24

-The villages west of River Clwyd

-are the most Welsh-speaking areas.

0:02:240:02:29

-speaks Welsh.

0:02:290:02:33

-The town of Denbigh - Dinbych

-is the heart of the Vale Of Clwyd.

0:02:520:02:56

-It gave its name to the county -

-Denbighshire.

0:02:570:03:00

-Dinbych means small castle but that

-name doesn't refer to this castle.

0:03:000:03:06

-King Edward I

-built this castle in 1282.

0:03:070:03:11

-Parts of the old town walls

-are still standing...

0:03:110:03:15

-..as are many historic buildings.

0:03:150:03:18

-Here I am, standing in the middle

-of the ancient town of Denbigh.

0:03:180:03:23

-This important old market town...

0:03:230:03:25

-..holds its market on that street

-every Wednesday.

0:03:250:03:29

-Denbigh is full of small shops,

-old houses, churches, chapels...

0:03:340:03:39

-..pubs, welcoming cafes...

0:03:390:03:42

-..and many interesting buildings,

-including the old Market Hall...

0:03:420:03:47

-..which is now Denbigh Library.

0:03:470:03:50

-The theatre and junior school

-are named after Twm O'r Nant...

0:03:500:03:54

-..the dramatist who wrote interludes

-- plays performed in the open air.

0:03:550:04:00

-This is a statue

-of Denbigh man, John Rowlands...

0:04:020:04:05

-..who changed his name

-to Henry Morton Stanley...

0:04:050:04:09

-..and went to Africa

-to find Dr David Livingstone.

0:04:090:04:13

-Famous local people include actor

-Rhys Ifans, who's from Ruthin...

0:04:130:04:19

-..and singer Caryl Parry Jones,

0:04:190:04:23

-William Morgan

-was the bishop of St Asaph.

0:04:240:04:27

-is another famous local boy.

0:04:330:04:37

-Bryn now lives and works

-in London...

0:04:380:04:41

-..but he was born and raised

-here, in the Vale Of Clwyd.

0:04:410:04:45

-Here's Bryn to tell us about

-his childhood on the family farm.

0:04:450:04:50

-The Vale Of Clwyd should be called

-the Village Of Clwyd.

0:05:030:05:06

-It's like a village.

-Everyone knows one another.

0:05:070:05:10

-Everyone looks after one another.

0:05:100:05:13

-There's an abundance of quality

-vegetables and fruit here.

0:05:140:05:19

-That's why I cook them in London.

0:05:200:05:22

-The land is fantastic.

0:05:220:05:24

-For me, the Vale Of Clwyd

-is the best place in the world.

0:05:240:05:28

-Llwyn Mawr farm, Llanrhaeadr,

-was my uncle's farm...

0:05:480:05:53

-..and my grandfather's before him.

0:05:530:05:57

-I lived here every weekend.

0:05:570:05:59

-I helped Dad and Uncle Arwyn

-every night.

0:05:590:06:02

-It's a family farm - sheep,

-beef cattle and dairy cattle.

0:06:030:06:07

-When I was a boy,

-there were over 50 pigs here.

0:06:070:06:11

-There was a vegetable shop here.

-It was a family business.

0:06:110:06:15

-I come here every time I'm home.

0:06:230:06:26

-We go shooting

-in the area around here.

0:06:260:06:29

-I like visiting Llwyn Mawr.

-It brings back fond memories.

0:06:310:06:35

-I remember Uncle Edward,

-Dad and Uncle Arwyn here.

0:06:350:06:38

-There was always

-something going on here.

0:06:380:06:41

-People would always visit the farm.

0:06:410:06:44

-I have many fond memories

-of the area.

0:06:440:06:47

-A lot of young people lived here,

-a lot of Welsh speakers.

0:06:470:06:51

-I remember Uncle Arwyn and Dad

-chopping wood...

0:06:510:06:54

-..and giving the wood away

-in return for wine.

0:06:540:06:57

-Uncle Arwyn would shoot rabbits...

0:06:580:07:00

-..and exchange them

-with another farmer for potatoes.

0:07:000:07:04

-Everyone swapped what they had.

0:07:040:07:06

-It shows that communities

-are still alive in Wales.

0:07:060:07:10

-My favourite place on the farm

-is that forest behind me.

0:07:190:07:23

-Playing with my brothers,

-Gareth and Sion, in the forest.

0:07:230:07:27

-There were a lot of toads in there.

0:07:270:07:30

-We'd go shooting

-between October and January.

0:07:300:07:33

-The forest was our Center Parcs

-or Alton Towers as children.

0:07:340:07:38

-There was a swing in there

-and a tree house.

0:07:390:07:43

-We built everything inside it.

-That's my favourite place.

0:07:430:07:47

-Bryn Williams, a local man

-who lives and works in London...

0:07:480:07:53

-..but still speaks Welsh

-with a lovely Denbighshire accent.

0:07:530:07:57

-Ioan Talfryn, the tutor,

-is originally from South Wales...

0:07:570:08:01

-..but he now lives and works

-in this area.

0:08:020:08:06

-What makes Denbigh

-and the area special?

0:08:060:08:09

-We're in the middle of the Vale Of

-Clwyd, a valley steeped in history.

0:08:090:08:14

-There are

-some fascinating buildings here.

0:08:140:08:17

-Denbigh Castle is wonderful, as is

-one of Wales's hidden treasures...

0:08:180:08:23

-..the Town Walls of Denbigh.

0:08:240:08:26

-Architecturally, Denbigh is one of

-the most beautiful towns in Wales.

0:08:270:08:32

-One thing I love about this area

-is the people's accent.

0:08:320:08:36

-What are the characteristics

-of the area's lilting Welsh accent?

0:08:360:08:41

-North East Wales, in general,

-is an area...

0:08:420:08:45

-..where the Ah sound of Gwynedd

-becomes an Eh sound.

0:08:460:08:49

-In Gwynedd,

-people say "sgidia" and "llyfra"...

0:08:500:08:54

-..but in this part of North Wales

-they say "llyfre" and "sgidie".

0:08:550:09:00

-Every Ah sound you hear in Gwynedd

-becomes an Eh in this area.

0:09:030:09:07

-Dw i'n codi yn y bore

-a dw i'n gwisgo'n sgidie.

0:09:080:09:10

-'De chi'n nabod Dimbech?

0:09:110:09:13

-They also say cochwyn

-rather than cychwyn.

0:09:130:09:17

-Mae'r gem yn cochwyn -

-the game starts.

0:09:170:09:21

-Cochwyn i'r gwaith -

-leave for work.

0:09:220:09:24

-Mae'r ffilm yn cochwyn -

-the film is starting.

0:09:240:09:28

-They don't say weles di - you saw

-or weles i - I saw.

0:09:280:09:33

-They don't say wnes i weld - I saw,

-wnes ti weld - did you see...

0:09:330:09:37

-..or anything along those lines.

0:09:370:09:40

-What they use all the time,

-and I mean all the time...

0:09:400:09:43

-..is ddaru ti weld - did you see,

-but they break it down further...

0:09:440:09:48

-..and say 'a ti weld - did you see?

0:09:490:09:51

-'A ti weld - did you see?

0:09:520:09:54

-'A ti weld - did you see?

-

-'A ti glywed - did you hear?

0:09:540:09:55

-Those are the main characteristics.

0:09:560:09:59

-People here don't say...

0:09:590:10:01

-..dw i'n byw yn Ninbych -

-I live in Denbigh.

0:10:010:10:04

-They say dw i'n byw yn Nimbech.

0:10:040:10:06

-The n becomes an m

-and ych becomes an ech.

0:10:060:10:09

-Where are the accent boundaries?

-Where does it change?

0:10:110:10:15

-Denbigh was the most important town

-in this part of the Vale Of Clwyd...

0:10:150:10:21

-..so places like Llannefydd

-and Llansannan fed Denbigh.

0:10:210:10:25

-Someone born and bred in Llansannan,

-Llannefydd or Bylchau...

0:10:250:10:30

-..will be

-in Ah becomes Eh territory.

0:10:300:10:32

-You can hear it in their accent.

0:10:330:10:35

-If you head west to Llangernyw,

-which feeds into Llanrwst...

0:10:370:10:42

-..you find yourself in Ah territory.

0:10:420:10:45

-Llanrwst was the most important town

-in that area...

0:10:460:10:50

-..and it pulled the accent

-into the direction of Gwynedd.

0:10:500:10:54

-Thank you, Ioan.

0:10:550:10:56

-Someone else who lives and once

-worked in Denbigh is Alwyn Thomas...

0:10:570:11:02

-..who ran a bakery

-and a restaurant here.

0:11:020:11:05

-He's the man who first taught

-Bryn Williams to bake.

0:11:050:11:09

-The first time I saw Bryn...

0:11:110:11:13

-..he came to the bakehouse

-with his father.

0:11:140:11:17

-He was 11 or 12 years old.

0:11:170:11:19

-His father said...

0:11:190:11:21

-..this boy's always baking cakes...

0:11:220:11:25

-..and cooking Sunday lunches.

0:11:250:11:28

-He wanted to gain some experience.

0:11:280:11:31

-He started working here

-on Saturdays...

0:11:320:11:35

-..and stayed here for five years.

0:11:350:11:38

-At the end of the five years,

-he went to Llandrillo College...

0:11:380:11:42

-..to study Bakery.

0:11:420:11:44

-After a month,

-he came to the bakehouse and said...

0:11:450:11:50

-.."Bad news, boss.

0:11:500:11:53

-"I've changed my course.

0:11:530:11:55

-"I'm not going to be a baker

-any more. I want to be a chef."

0:11:560:11:59

-He was on his way

-to becoming a chef after that.

0:12:020:12:05

-When I worked at the bakery,

-I saw Alwyn doing everything.

0:12:160:12:21

-He'd take flour, water,

-salt and pepper.

0:12:210:12:24

-By combining those ingredients,

-he would create something magical.

0:12:240:12:29

-You'd see the yeast growing

-as if it were alive.

0:12:290:12:32

-That's what inspired me

-to start cooking.

0:12:330:12:36

-Seeing ingredients

-turn into something you could eat.

0:12:360:12:41

-Alwyn has played a huge part

-in my career.

0:12:410:12:44

-I left the bakery when I was 16

-and started working in a kitchen.

0:12:470:12:53

-I worked in Cafe Nicoise in

-Colwyn Bay while I was at college.

0:12:530:12:57

-I worked with chef Carl Swift.

0:12:580:13:00

-He'd worked in London.

-He told me I should go to London.

0:13:010:13:05

-I finished college in June.

0:13:070:13:09

-In March or April, I was flicking

-through the catering magazine.

0:13:090:13:14

-I read that Marco Pierre White

-was looking for chefs.

0:13:150:13:19

-I asked Carl if he thought

-I was good enough...

0:13:190:13:22

-..to work for Marco Pierre White.

0:13:220:13:24

-Carl had already worked in London.

0:13:250:13:27

-Carl answered

-by handing me the phone.

0:13:270:13:30

-He punched the numbers

-into the phone and handed it to me.

0:13:310:13:35

-I spoke to Marco Pierre White's

-head chef from Cafe Nicoise.

0:13:350:13:39

-I went to London and worked there,

-without pay, for a week...

0:13:390:13:44

-..to try and prove I could do it.

0:13:440:13:46

-I was taken on

-and by the end of June...

0:13:460:13:49

-..I was working in London full-time.

0:13:490:13:52

-It was a huge culture shock.

0:13:530:13:55

-The hours I worked,

-the way I worked and where I lived.

0:13:560:14:00

-I lived in a small bedsit

-with just enough room for one.

0:14:000:14:05

-A cell would have been bigger!

0:14:060:14:09

-I was paying 100 a week

-to live there.

0:14:090:14:12

-I remember the shock

-of the first six months.

0:14:120:14:15

-I came home

-having lost a lot of weight.

0:14:150:14:19

-Mam was close to tears.

0:14:190:14:21

-The tears were welling up

-in her eyes.

0:14:220:14:25

-She thought I was working too hard.

0:14:250:14:28

-I went back to London.

0:14:290:14:31

-I've been there for over ten years.

0:14:310:14:34

-Bryn Williams and his lovely

-Vale Of Clwyd accent.

0:14:390:14:42

-It's time for a break.

0:14:420:14:44

-Stay tuned

-to learn more about Denbigh.

-Welcome back to Milltir2

-which comes from the Vale Of Clwyd.

0:15:020:15:06

-Next, Iolo Williams is in Ruthin

-to talk to Robat Arwyn...

0:15:070:15:11

-..about the town's architecture.

0:15:120:15:14

-Arwyn, how are you?

0:15:150:15:16

-Arwyn, how are you?

-

-Hello! Welcome to St Peter's Square.

0:15:160:15:20

-I'm no historian but even I can see

-this is a historic town.

0:15:200:15:24

-These are ancient buildings

-and Myddleton Arms fascinates me.

0:15:250:15:29

-That roof really catches the eye.

0:15:300:15:32

-Yes - the seven windows,

-which look like dormer windows.

0:15:340:15:38

-Apparently,

-it's based on a Dutch design.

0:15:390:15:42

-It's called Myddleton Arms because

-Sir Hugh Myddleton owned it...

0:15:440:15:49

-..around 400 years ago.

0:15:490:15:51

-Local people call it Seven Eyes...

0:15:510:15:53

-..because those windows look like

-seven eyes watching the townsfolk.

0:15:530:15:58

-That's interesting.

0:15:590:16:00

-The NatWest Bank building

-also looks old to me.

0:16:010:16:05

-Yes. It's the oldest building

-on the Square.

0:16:060:16:09

-It dates back

-to the times of Glyndwr.

0:16:100:16:13

-Owain Glyndwr

-razed Ruthin to the ground in 1401.

0:16:130:16:17

-This was built later and used

-as an administrative building.

0:16:180:16:22

-It was a court house and a jail.

0:16:220:16:24

-A jail?

0:16:250:16:27

-I've heard of Ruthin Jail.

-Is that it?

0:16:270:16:29

-No, that's a different place.

0:16:300:16:32

-Ruthin Gaol is over there,

-on Clwyd Street.

0:16:320:16:35

-Let's take a look at it.

0:16:360:16:38

-Dear me! This is a scary building.

0:16:530:16:55

-What's the history of this prison?

0:16:550:16:58

-This interesting design

-is based on Pentonville prison.

0:16:580:17:02

-Imagine this place when

-it contained 200 to 300 prisoners.

0:17:050:17:10

-The people imprisoned here...

0:17:110:17:13

-..had been caught stealing things

-like hens, meat or a loaf of bread.

0:17:140:17:18

-They were then thrown in here.

0:17:190:17:21

-What sort of people were held here?

0:17:220:17:25

-What sort of people were held here?

-

-Some real characters!

0:17:250:17:26

-A man called Coch Bach Y Bala

-was a notorious poacher.

0:17:260:17:30

-He was famous for stealing and he

-was famous for escaping from prison!

0:17:300:17:35

-He escaped twice from Ruthin

-and once from Caernarfon.

0:17:350:17:39

-He escaped from here

-for the second time in 1913...

0:17:400:17:43

-..and he went on the run

-for around six days...

0:17:440:17:49

-..but he was shot in the leg

-and he bled to death.

0:17:490:17:52

-Oh, the poor man.

0:17:520:17:54

-You work here, don't you?

0:17:540:17:56

-Yes, but not in this building.

0:17:560:17:59

-I work in the original gaol. I have

-a cell... I mean an office there!

0:17:590:18:04

-Thank you for teaching me so much

-about Ruthin.

0:18:040:18:08

-I really hope you have the key

-to let us out!

0:18:080:18:11

-I can't make any promises!

0:18:110:18:13

-From Ruthin, we return to Denbigh to

-meet a [email protected] 2013 contestant.

0:18:160:18:21

-Cisa Borsey lives on a farm

-near Denbigh and works in Ruthin.

0:18:260:18:30

-Hefin, her partner,

-is a Welsh speaker.

0:18:300:18:33

-When I met her, Cisa had only been

-learning Welsh for three months.

0:18:330:18:38

-There's a whole world I'm missing

-out on in the shows we go to.

0:18:510:18:55

-Local shows and the Royal Welsh.

0:18:550:18:57

-They speak Welsh all the time...

0:18:580:19:00

-..so I'm really looking forward

-to surprising them with my Welsh!

0:19:010:19:08

-I go to the Show every year.

0:19:110:19:13

-At the moment, I don't understand

-what they're saying.

0:19:180:19:22

-I want to speak Welsh to them.

0:19:220:19:24

-I've lived in Wales forever nearly.

0:19:250:19:27

-I didn't learn any Welsh at school.

0:19:300:19:32

-I went to a private school,

-so I didn't do Welsh at all.

0:19:350:19:38

-They didn't teach Welsh

-at any level there?

0:19:390:19:42

-You could have done it at lunchtime.

0:19:420:19:45

-It was the same lunchtime as choir.

0:19:450:19:50

-I was more music, so did the choir.

0:19:510:19:53

-Welsh or singing? I know a place

-where you can do both!

0:19:540:19:57

-Ready? One, two, three!

0:19:590:20:01

-# It's windy in Bethesda so they say

0:20:010:20:05

-# It's windy in Bethesda so they say

0:20:060:20:09

-# It's windy in Bethesda

-Windy in Bethesda

0:20:100:20:14

-# Windy in Bethesda so they say #

0:20:140:20:16

-Everyone at home will hear you

-speaking Welsh with me.

0:20:180:20:22

-Tell them

-how long you've been learning.

0:20:230:20:26

-Since January.

0:20:260:20:27

-Three months!

0:20:270:20:29

-Only three months!

0:20:300:20:31

-How have you learned it?

0:20:330:20:35

-With Say Something In Welsh.

0:20:350:20:37

-Online?

0:20:370:20:39

-No, on my phone.

0:20:400:20:42

-They're audio files and you

-listen to them on your phone?

0:20:420:20:46

-Yes. I listen to them in the car...

0:20:460:20:48

-..on my way to work

-and on my way home every day.

0:20:490:20:52

-Why do [email protected]?

-Why do it this way, on television?

0:21:100:21:14

-The whole concept.

0:21:140:21:16

-I really like the idea

-of learning with people.

0:21:160:21:19

-At the moment,

-I'm learning on my own, in the car.

0:21:190:21:23

-Learning Welsh with other people

-is quite nice.

0:21:230:21:26

-I thought I'd fill in the form

-and see what happens.

0:21:270:21:30

-Then I got a phone call

-and I was like, "Oh, OK!"

0:21:300:21:34

-I didn't expect it

-to go as far as it has.

0:21:340:21:37

-I've got over the nerves now.

0:21:370:21:39

-I'm excited now.

0:21:390:21:41

-Here I am, a year after [email protected]

-2013, back on the farm with Cisa.

0:21:430:21:48

-How are you, Cisa?

0:21:490:21:50

-How are you, Cisa?

-

-I'm fine thank you, Nia.

0:21:500:21:52

-The big question is

-how's your Welsh?

0:21:520:21:54

-It's going quite well.

0:21:560:21:58

-I've improved but

-I'm not sure I'm perfect just yet!

0:21:580:22:02

-Do you have opportunities

-to use your Welsh locally?

0:22:040:22:07

-Yes. A lot of opportunities.

0:22:070:22:09

-All you have to do is feel happy

-to start a conversation in Welsh.

0:22:100:22:15

-I think a lot of people here

-can speak Welsh.

0:22:150:22:18

-I speak Welsh with Hefin

-but not all the time.

0:22:200:22:24

-I also speak Welsh

-with Hefin's friends.

0:22:240:22:27

-Do you speak half Welsh,

-half English with them?

0:22:270:22:31

-Do you switch languages?

0:22:310:22:33

-I try to speak only Welsh.

0:22:330:22:35

-I try to speak only Welsh.

-

-And that's why you're succeeding.

0:22:350:22:38

-You go for it

-and dive in, feet first.

0:22:380:22:40

-You tell yourself

-you'll try to speak Welsh.

0:22:410:22:44

-One of your reasons for learning

-Welsh was to go to the Royal Welsh.

0:22:470:22:52

-How did the last Show go?

0:22:530:22:54

-I still feel nervous

-to start a conversation in Welsh.

0:22:560:23:01

-I hope it improves this year.

0:23:010:23:03

-What else have you been doing

-since I last saw you?

0:23:050:23:08

-Hefin and I have bought a house.

0:23:080:23:10

-That's exciting news! Whereabouts?

0:23:110:23:14

-That's exciting news! Whereabouts?

-

-In Denbigh.

0:23:140:23:15

-In the middle of town?

0:23:150:23:17

-In the middle of town?

-

-On Ruthin Road, by the high school.

0:23:170:23:20

-I'll come over

-for a cuppa next time.

0:23:200:23:22

-Are you still in touch

-with the [email protected] crew?

0:23:230:23:27

-Yes, but I talk to Danielle

-and Gayle more than the others.

0:23:270:23:31

-We all keep in touch via Facebook.

0:23:340:23:37

-Sarah emailed me about her new baby.

0:23:370:23:39

-Polu has become a father.

-He has a new baby.

0:23:410:23:44

-Do you foresee a day,

-sometime in the future...

0:23:450:23:48

-..when you and Hefin

-will speak only Welsh together?

0:23:480:23:52

-I really want to be able to speak

-nothing but Welsh to him.

0:23:530:23:57

-I want our children

-to speak Welsh and English.

0:23:580:24:02

-Cisa, go forth and multiply and make

-lots of Welsh-speaking babies!

0:24:040:24:09

-It's time for a break.

0:24:100:24:12

-Stay tuned

-for a special bara brith recipe...

0:24:120:24:15

-..and to meet the owner

-of this Georgian house.

-Welcome back to Milltir2.

0:24:330:24:35

-I'm in the Vale Of Clwyd

-to meet some local people...

0:24:350:24:39

-..and to look back at archive

-material filmed in this area.

0:24:390:24:43

-Earlier in the programme...

0:24:440:24:46

-..Bryn Williams

-talked about learning to bake...

0:24:460:24:49

-..at the bakehouse in Denbigh.

0:24:490:24:52

-This is a clip of Bryn coming home

-to make bara brith for his grandma.

0:24:520:24:56

-First, you need some flour.

0:25:000:25:02

-We'll use lard

-as the fat in this recipe.

0:25:060:25:09

-It's my grandmother's recipe...

0:25:090:25:11

-..and she always uses lard,

-never butter or margarine.

0:25:110:25:16

-I remember Nain making this by hand

-when I was little.

0:25:170:25:21

-Alwyn Thomas always taught me

-to do everything with my hands...

0:25:210:25:25

-..rather than with a machine.

0:25:260:25:28

-The combined lard and flour

-looks like breadcrumbs.

0:25:330:25:36

-Add the sugar.

0:25:370:25:38

-Mix the sugar

-into the flour and lard.

0:25:400:25:42

-Orange peel and lemon peel.

0:25:430:25:45

-Add the currants.

0:25:460:25:48

-Before the next step, make a hole

-in the centre of the flour.

0:25:500:25:54

-I'll pour water and yeast in here.

0:25:570:25:59

-The water must be warm but not

-too hot, as it will kill the yeast.

0:26:010:26:06

-The yeast will sleep

-if the water's too cold.

0:26:060:26:09

-North Wales bara brith is different

-from South Wales bara brith.

0:26:110:26:16

-The southern recipe uses no yeast

-but it does include an egg...

0:26:160:26:21

-..so it tastes

-more like a cake than bread.

0:26:210:26:24

-This is the fun bit

-which everyone enjoys.

0:26:270:26:30

-Get all the yeast out of the jug.

0:26:300:26:32

-If the yeast isn't in the flour,

-the bara brith won't rise.

0:26:320:26:36

-Start with one finger

-and one finger only.

0:26:380:26:41

-Add the flour to the water

-very slowly.

0:26:410:26:44

-The water's all gone, so I can now

-use both hands to bring it together.

0:26:520:26:57

-Add all the flour to the dough.

0:26:570:26:59

-Roll the dough around the surface

-to pick up all the flour.

0:27:070:27:11

-Let the dough rise in a warm place

-until it doubles in size.

0:27:200:27:24

-Food brings everyone together.

0:27:290:27:31

-It's the magnet which brings

-friends and family together.

0:27:310:27:35

-Bake it in the oven

-for half an hour.

0:27:350:27:38

-I've got time for a cup of tea.

0:27:390:27:41

-This is Nain's recipe,

-so I think she should try it first.

0:27:450:27:49

-Will you have

-a little slice of bara brith?

0:27:490:27:52

-Thank you.

0:27:520:27:54

-Is it alright, Nain?

0:27:590:28:01

-Is it alright, Nain?

-

-Yes. It's very good.

0:28:010:28:02

-Are you sure?

0:28:020:28:04

-It looks good.

0:28:050:28:07

-Nain on one side

-and Alwyn on the other!

0:28:090:28:12

-The texture is right. It's lovely.

0:28:120:28:14

-I haven't tried it yet.

0:28:150:28:16

-You haven't lost it!

0:28:210:28:22

-Fantastic.

0:28:220:28:24

-I'll save that bit for Dad.

0:28:240:28:26

-I'll have this bit.

0:28:270:28:28

-Does it taste the same

-as your bara brith, Mam?

0:28:290:28:32

-Almost!

0:28:340:28:35

-Yes - it was almost as good

-as Nain's bara brith!

0:28:360:28:39

-If you want to hear the truth,

-there's no place like home!

0:28:390:28:43

-Dr Olwen Williams

-is someone who moved to St Asaph.

0:28:440:28:47

-She and Paul Lloyd, her partner,

-bought a Georgian house there.

0:28:470:28:52

-Aled Sam visited the house

-to have a chat with Olwen.

0:28:520:28:56

-For help to follow the programme,

-head to the website...

0:28:580:29:02

-..or download the Dal Ati app.

0:29:050:29:07

-This Georgian house...

0:29:200:29:22

-..belongs to Dr Olwen Williams

-and Paul Lloyd, her partner.

0:29:220:29:26

-Paul has a studio here

-and he renovated the house.

0:29:260:29:30

-They both influenced

-the interior design.

0:29:310:29:34

-The large rooms...

0:29:340:29:35

-..are full of interesting items,

-including Paul's work.

0:29:360:29:40

-What made you choose this house?

0:29:420:29:44

-It met many of my requirements.

0:29:440:29:46

-I wanted a garden

-and a house which had many rooms.

0:29:470:29:51

-We didn't have children then

-and we still don't have children...

0:29:510:29:56

-..but we thought we'd have lots of

-guests, if we moved to North Wales.

0:29:560:30:01

-We were right -

-the house is full every weekend.

0:30:010:30:04

-What, apart from the size,

-drew you to the house?

0:30:120:30:16

-It's a Georgian house

-and I love Georgian design.

0:30:160:30:20

-The proportions are fantastic.

0:30:200:30:22

-The location is perfect.

0:30:230:30:24

-Though it's in the countryside

-it also meets our final criterion.

0:30:250:30:30

-That criterion was to have a house

-within walking distance of a pub.

0:30:300:30:36

-That's the honest truth.

0:30:360:30:38

-We looked for that

-in every single house.

0:30:380:30:41

-Who cares where it is - it must be

-within walking distance of a pub!

0:30:410:30:45

-We love to go for a pint,

-in the evening.

0:30:460:30:48

-This house fitted all our criteria.

0:30:490:30:51

-Is it easy to adapt a Georgian house

-to modern living?

0:30:530:30:57

-Yes, I think so.

0:30:570:30:58

-Our taste differs from that of

-most people who buy Georgian houses.

0:30:590:31:04

-As you can see,

-some of the rooms are very modern.

0:31:050:31:08

-Some have an art deco flavour.

0:31:080:31:10

-Other rooms include touches

-of art nouveau and Arts And Crafts.

0:31:110:31:15

-We've tried to preserve

-the Georgian features.

0:31:150:31:19

-We haven't added

-any brand new features.

0:31:190:31:24

-What about your colour scheme?

0:31:250:31:27

-This red is very bright.

0:31:270:31:29

-It's bright but also warm.

0:31:290:31:31

-Yes. I'm very fond of white,

-as a canvas for Paul's work.

0:31:310:31:36

-We have what is, more or less,

-a black and white room.

0:31:360:31:40

-Bright colours

-reflect our personalities.

0:31:410:31:44

-We're both extroverts

-and we're quite bubbly.

0:31:450:31:48

-We want to live in an environment

-which complements that.

0:31:490:31:52

-Did you knock

-these two rooms into one?

0:32:080:32:11

-No, I think this was done

-in the 1970s.

0:32:110:32:14

-There was a pantry over here.

0:32:150:32:17

-There was a corridor here

-and a door there.

0:32:180:32:21

-This is the heart of our home.

0:32:210:32:23

-We live here. Our cat and dog

-are with us all the time.

0:32:240:32:28

-I enjoy spending time here

-more than any other room.

0:32:290:32:32

-This wide hallway suggests to me

-the original owners were wealthy.

0:32:480:32:53

-Only the rich could afford to

-dedicate so much space to a hallway.

0:32:530:32:59

-Look at this fantastic floor

-and these wide stone slabs.

0:32:590:33:03

-Everything here echoes

-the original, Georgian design.

0:33:030:33:07

-The kitchen and the lounge

-we saw earlier are through there.

0:33:080:33:12

-This is the main lounge.

0:33:120:33:14

-Beyond it is the dining room.

0:33:140:33:16

-It's like entering a cave.

0:33:170:33:19

-It could certainly be described

-as whiter than white.

0:33:190:33:24

-Everything looks better

-against a white background.

0:33:270:33:31

-This is a fusion

-of several design periods.

0:33:310:33:34

-The sofa and two chairs are modern.

0:33:340:33:37

-It's a fascinating collection

-of individual pieces.

0:33:370:33:41

-No two pieces of glasswork

-are the same style.

0:33:430:33:46

-It's an interesting collection.

0:33:460:33:49

-There's a boat in the fireplace.

0:33:500:33:52

-It's a two-bar electric fire,

-in essence...

0:33:530:33:56

-..but it becomes a work of art

-when you encase the fire in a boat.

0:33:570:34:01

-You can admire it

-with a smile on your face.

0:34:020:34:05

-It's very camp.

0:34:050:34:07

-The dining area is over here.

0:34:070:34:09

-This is my favourite

-piece of furniture in the house.

0:34:100:34:13

-What a magnificent table.

0:34:140:34:15

-Look at the legs!

0:34:160:34:18

-There's a variety of chairs here.

-Each one is a design classic.

0:34:180:34:22

-They would take their place

-in any room and in any period.

0:34:230:34:27

-Can you foresee a time

-when you won't live here?

0:34:370:34:41

-Yes. The time will come.

0:34:420:34:43

-This is a big house for two people.

0:34:430:34:46

-When we move,

-I love the idea of a self-build.

0:34:460:34:49

-Something like the German Huf Haus.

0:34:490:34:52

-This house

-was built as a family home...

0:34:530:34:55

-..and that's what it should be.

0:34:560:34:58

-That's why we must move from here.

0:34:580:35:00

-I want someone else

-to have fun here...

0:35:010:35:03

-..just like we've had fun here.

0:35:040:35:06

-Stay tuned for a chat about learning

-Welsh in the Vale Of Clwyd...

0:35:080:35:12

-..a peek inside

-a local woman's wardrobe...

0:35:130:35:16

-..and a trip to the castle

-with Aled Sam.

0:35:380:35:42

-She owns a beauty salon in Denbigh.

0:35:420:35:45

-I met her a few years ago

-for the Cwpwrdd Dillad series.

0:35:450:35:48

-Julie Howatson-Broster

-owns a beauty salon in Denbigh.

0:35:500:35:54

-What better way to start the day

-than with a manicure?

0:35:550:35:58

-I love clothes.

0:36:000:36:02

-Clothes are my life.

0:36:020:36:03

-That's a very sad confession

-to make!

0:36:040:36:06

-Julie has always loved clothes

-and she changes her look constantly.

0:36:120:36:18

-Where does it stem from, Julie?

0:36:230:36:25

-Did you inherit it from somewhere?

0:36:250:36:27

-Did you inherit it from somewhere?

-

-From my mother, probably.

0:36:270:36:29

-She made a lot of her own clothes,

-in the early 1970s.

0:36:290:36:33

-A lot of people made

-their own clothes, in those days.

0:36:330:36:37

-My brother and I

-tended to wear the same things.

0:36:370:36:40

-Well, no, he didn't wear dresses

-but the colours were similar.

0:36:410:36:45

-There are photos of us

-wearing co-ordinating colours.

0:36:450:36:49

-Very cute!

0:36:490:36:51

-They're great.

0:36:510:36:53

-Did you do this yourself?

0:36:530:36:55

-Did you do this yourself?

-

-Yes. They're quite nice.

0:36:550:36:56

-My husband doesn't agree...

0:36:570:36:59

-..even though he now

-sleeps with five women, not just me!

0:36:590:37:03

-He should be chuffed.

0:37:030:37:04

-He should be chuffed.

-

-They don't do much, though.

0:37:040:37:06

-Where shall we start?

0:37:060:37:08

-Where shall we start?

-

-Let's start here.

0:37:080:37:10

-Some of the things in here

-mean a lot to me.

0:37:110:37:14

-This means a lot to me

-but I hate it!

0:37:140:37:17

-You hate your wedding dress?

0:37:170:37:19

-I wore it ten years ago

-and it looks so fussy.

0:37:190:37:23

-I'm glad

-I didn't go for a meringue.

0:37:230:37:26

-At least it's straight,

-which suits me because I'm tall.

0:37:270:37:31

-It's just far too fussy.

0:37:320:37:34

-This is very sentimental.

0:37:360:37:38

-This belonged to my mother.

0:37:380:37:41

-This belonged to my mother.

-

-It's a 1960s coat.

0:37:410:37:42

-Is the dress vintage, too?

0:37:430:37:45

-Is the dress vintage, too?

-

-No, a friend of mine made it.

0:37:450:37:47

-I bought the beads

-in a second hand store.

0:37:470:37:50

-I wore this dress when I was little.

0:38:040:38:07

-These were my first shoes.

0:38:090:38:11

-I only have one -

-its partner must have walked away!

0:38:120:38:15

-This is my son's first shoe.

0:38:150:38:18

-Your shoe and your son's shoe

-are very similar.

0:38:200:38:23

-This is lovely!

0:38:250:38:27

-Yes, it is nice.

0:38:270:38:28

-It's really tiny!

0:38:310:38:33

-Yes, considering its price tag.

0:38:330:38:35

-The smallest item in the wardrobe

-was also the most expensive.

0:38:350:38:40

-Isn't that terrible?

0:38:400:38:41

-Isn't that terrible?

-

-No, it's fine.

0:38:410:38:43

-It's great with long boots,

-for the men.

0:38:430:38:46

-I hope my husband likes it!

0:38:480:38:50

-It's great. It's like a corset.

0:38:500:38:52

-It pulls you in.

0:38:520:38:54

-Zip it up and your tummy is flat.

-It's fantastic!

0:38:540:38:58

-I think

-that's why it was so expensive.

0:38:580:39:00

-What do we have

-in the next wardrobe?

0:39:020:39:04

-Wow!

0:39:050:39:07

-These are fantastic.

-They're comfortable.

0:39:120:39:15

-Are they new?

0:39:160:39:17

-Are they new?

-

-Yes.

0:39:170:39:18

-I wore these

-with one of those shirts...

0:39:250:39:28

-..and my granny said,

-"Julie, you look like my mother."

0:39:290:39:33

-I thought, "Oh, gosh!"

0:39:330:39:34

-She told me not to take offence.

0:39:350:39:37

-She remembers her mother wearing

-high collars and boots, like these.

0:39:370:39:42

-Cute!

0:39:420:39:43

-Isn't that fantastic?

0:39:460:39:48

-I stayed at the Sanderson Hotel

-in London last year...

0:39:480:39:53

-..and they had a sofa

-shaped like this.

0:39:530:39:56

-I walked in, clutching this bag.

0:39:560:39:59

-It was funny.

0:40:000:40:01

-The staff noticed

-that my bag matched the furniture!

0:40:020:40:05

-It was hilarious!

0:40:060:40:07

-It's Kookai. It wasn't expensive.

0:40:070:40:10

-Oh, Julie! That was nice.

0:40:230:40:25

-I'm in the Popeth Cymraeg centre

-with Ioan Talfryn.

0:40:260:40:29

-Here he is, in his smart pink shirt.

0:40:300:40:33

-Ioan, you're the Chief Executive

-of Popeth Cymraeg.

0:40:330:40:37

-Yes. Popeth Cymraeg is a body

-which teaches Welsh to adults.

0:40:370:40:41

-We chose a name which is accessible

-for people from outside the area.

0:40:430:40:48

-The name is Popeth Cymraeg in Welsh

-and in English it's Welsh Unlimited.

0:40:480:40:53

-It suggests that, if you speak Welsh

-there are no boundaries.

0:40:530:40:57

-There are no limits.

0:40:580:40:59

-Welsh Unlimited offers Welsh classes

-in the community...

0:40:590:41:04

-..across a large area

-of North Wales.

0:41:040:41:07

-This morning, we'll begin...

0:41:080:41:10

-..by learning to cancel

-or postpone arrangements.

0:41:110:41:15

-Why did you choose Denbigh

-as your headquarters?

0:41:180:41:22

-I did some research into the status

-of the language in the North East...

0:41:220:41:28

-..to find out

-where I should hold Welsh classes.

0:41:280:41:31

-I tried to hold Welsh classes

-in some villages...

0:41:320:41:36

-..and I found it was impossible

-to run Welsh classes there...

0:41:360:41:40

-..because everyone

-already spoke Welsh!

0:41:410:41:44

-I had to find my target areas.

0:41:440:41:47

-I did a lot of research...

0:41:480:41:49

-..and I realized that Welsh

-had retreated hugely.

0:41:500:41:53

-I wanted to raise the profile

-of the Welsh language...

0:41:540:41:58

-..and help people learn Welsh...

0:41:580:42:00

-..and blend into

-Welsh-speaking communities.

0:42:000:42:04

-In this area,

-on that side of the A525...

0:42:040:42:07

-..you'd find villages which are

-completely English-speaking...

0:42:070:42:12

-..and on this side, there are

-completely Welsh-speaking villages.

0:42:120:42:17

-Denbigh is sandwiched between them.

0:42:170:42:20

-I'm sorry, unfortunately...

0:42:200:42:22

-I'm sorry, unfortunately...

-

-Mae'n ddrwg gynna i, yn anffodus...

0:42:220:42:25

-..I can't come...

0:42:260:42:27

-..I can't come...

-

-..dw i ddim yn medru dod...

0:42:270:42:29

-..to the Tupperware party.

0:42:300:42:31

-..to the Tupperware party.

-

-..i'r parti Tupperware.

0:42:310:42:32

-Drat!

0:42:330:42:34

-Is there a good range of activities

-for Welsh learners locally?

0:42:350:42:39

-Yes. Many events are held

-through the medium of Welsh.

0:42:400:42:44

-The problem is...

0:42:440:42:45

-..the gap between learners' needs

-and Welsh-speakers' needs.

0:42:460:42:50

-The level of Welsh

-is generally too advanced.

0:42:510:42:54

-That gap is being bridged by us

-and Menter Iaith...

0:42:550:42:59

-..when we organize activities where

-learners can use their Welsh...

0:43:000:43:04

-..in Welsh activities where you

-don't need a PhD in Welsh...

0:43:050:43:09

-..to be able to understand

-what's going on!

0:43:090:43:13

-More and more of that

-is happening...

0:43:140:43:16

-..but we need much more investment

-from the Welsh Government.

0:43:160:43:21

-I'm sorry but, unfortunately...

0:43:220:43:24

-..I can't come

-to the party tonight.

0:43:240:43:27

-..dw i ddim yn medru dod

-i'r parti heno.

0:43:280:43:30

-I have too much work.

0:43:310:43:32

-I have too much work.

-

-Mae gynna i ormod o waith.

0:43:320:43:33

-You could be a drama queen

-and go like this!

0:43:350:43:38

-I have too much work.

0:43:390:43:40

-I have too much work.

-

-Mae gynna i ormod o waith.

0:43:400:43:42

-Denbigh is included the book Wales:

-100 Places To See Before You Die.

0:43:430:43:48

-Here's Aled Sam exploring the castle

-and Denbigh town...

0:43:480:43:52

-..and visiting St Marcella's Church

-to see Twm O'r Nant's grave.

0:43:520:43:57

-Twm O'r Nant is famous

-throughout Wales, of course.

0:43:570:44:01

-For help to follow the programme,

-take a look at our website...

0:44:030:44:08

0:44:100:44:12

-Denbigh was presented to

-Henry de Lacy by Edward I in 1282.

0:44:280:44:32

-What remains of a statue built

-to thank him is above the main door.

0:44:320:44:38

-It took around 13 years

-to build this magnificent castle.

0:44:390:44:44

-It stands on the hill above

-what is now the town of Denbigh.

0:44:440:44:48

-The great gatehouse

-has three towers.

0:44:490:44:52

-As Welsh gatehouses go,

-this is the cat's pyjamas.

0:44:520:44:56

-It really does have everything.

0:44:560:44:58

-An external barbican, a prison,

-two portcullises, a drawbridge...

0:44:590:45:04

-..some private quarters and a hall.

0:45:040:45:06

-It's worth climbing to the top

-of the hill, through the town...

0:45:070:45:11

-..to admire

-this ingenious structure.

0:45:120:45:15

-Keep walking

-to the top of the wall...

0:45:220:45:25

-..and you'll see why Denbigh Castle

-was built here.

0:45:250:45:29

-The views are breathtaking,

-in all directions.

0:45:300:45:33

-From the Vale of Clwyd

-and Moel Famau...

0:45:330:45:37

-..across the hills and down

-to the plains and to St Asaph.

0:45:370:45:41

-The town of Denbigh stands proudly

-below us, all around the castle.

0:45:410:45:46

-It is a truly wondrous sight.

0:45:460:45:48

-The former Denbigh Mental Hospital

-is visible from the castle.

0:45:550:46:00

-There are interesting,

-ancient buildings in the town.

0:46:010:46:04

-These include the old Gwasg Gee

-and Theatr Twm O'r Nant.

0:46:040:46:09

-Twm O'r Nant leads us to the beauty

-of St Marcella's Church.

0:46:100:46:14

-Twm O'r Nant was buried here,

-at St Marcella's Church.

0:46:230:46:28

-'Here lieth the body

-of Thomas Edwards of Nant...

0:46:310:46:33

-..the Cambrian Shakespeare...

0:46:340:46:35

-..with his wife

-and four of his daughters.'

0:46:360:46:39

-'Died April the 5th, 1810, aged 71.'

0:46:400:46:45

-There are two Welsh poems here.

0:46:450:46:48

-'Despite the glorious natural talent

-Of this famous poet

0:46:480:46:53

-'The muse and his brogue

-Are silenced in this quiet spot'.

0:46:540:46:58

-Twm O'r Nant was our Shakespeare and

-this theatre is named after him.

0:46:590:47:04

-It's named after Twm O'r Nant,

-not Aled Sam!

0:47:040:47:07

-That's all from Denbigh

-and the Vale Of Clwyd.

0:47:080:47:11

-Thank you for joining us.

0:47:110:47:13

-You can watch this programme again

-on Clic.

-Next week,

-I'll be in Merthyr Tydfil.

-Until then, goodbye.
