-of villages and farms.

0:24:450:24:48

-Some 200 years ago,

-wool was important here...

-..and this area was famous

-for knitting gloves and socks.

0:24:520:24:55

-Agriculture is important

-in this area...

0:24:560:24:59

-..where the Welsh language

-of Llanuwchllyn.

0:25:320:25:35

-The Normans also came here...

0:25:380:25:40

-..and they built a motte-and-bailey

-castle in Y Bala itself...

0:25:400:25:44

-..which is now known as The Mount.

0:25:440:25:47

-meant for English incomers.

0:25:520:25:55

-The Romans, the Normans

-and the English...

0:25:570:26:00

-A group of 153 people

-from all over Wales...

0:26:260:26:29

-..sailed to Patagonia

-on a ship called Mimosa in 1865.

0:26:290:26:33

-Today, many Patagonians speak Welsh

-and many also learn the language.

0:26:330:26:39

-Llanuwchllyn is also the home

-of a memorial to father and son...

0:26:400:26:45

-..OM Edwards

-and Ifan ab Owen Edwards.

0:26:450:26:49

-Both men were born here.

0:26:490:26:51

-OM Edwards wrote books

0:26:520:26:55

-OM Edwards was the man

-who made sure...

0:27:020:27:04

-..the Welsh language was given

-its rightful place in Welsh schools.

0:27:040:27:09

-Llanuwchllyn primary school

-Ifan ab Owen Edwards opened the

-first Welsh-medium primary school...

0:27:150:27:20

-..in Aberystwyth in 1939.

-But his great work began in 1922...

0:27:230:27:25

-..the year when he established

-Urdd Gobaith Cymru.

0:27:250:27:30

-Since then, thousands of children

-and young people...

0:27:310:27:35

-..have become members of the Urdd...

0:27:360:27:38

-..and enjoyed countless activities

-through the medium of Welsh.

0:27:380:27:43

-Hello. Here's the driver.

-Ben, how are you?

0:27:510:27:54

-Your hands are black,

-just as they should be.

0:27:550:27:58

-It's a fantastic job.

0:28:010:28:02

-Your grandfather

-founded this railway.

0:28:020:28:05

-Yes, back in 1972.

0:28:050:28:07

-He introduced me to the railway

-when I was 13.

0:28:070:28:10

-There's something

-I've always wanted to do.

0:28:110:28:13

-I've always wanted to do

-the beep-beep. Can I have a go?

0:28:140:28:17

-No problem.

0:28:180:28:19

-No problem.

-

-Brilliant.

0:28:190:28:20

-WHISTLE

0:28:290:28:30

-Give it some welly!

0:28:330:28:34

-It's a dream come true.

0:28:350:28:37

-After all the silliness...

0:28:380:28:40

-..it was time to board the train

-and set off for Y Bala...

0:28:400:28:45

-..in the company

-of local pharmacist Sion Llewelyn.

0:28:450:28:49

-Are we ready to go?

-Do we have enough steam?

0:28:490:28:51

0:28:520:28:54

-Hello, children.

0:28:540:28:56

-WHISTLE

0:28:580:29:00

-Did you travel on the train

-as a youngster?

0:29:060:29:09

-Yes, regularly.

0:29:100:29:12

-I would travel free of charge...

0:29:130:29:15

-..because I weeded the station

-for George Barnes.

0:29:150:29:18

-We'd go for a ride first...

0:29:190:29:21

-..then jump off and race home

-instead of weeding.

0:29:220:29:25

-He did wise up and he made us do the

-weeding before we caught the train!

0:29:260:29:30

-The Welsh name for Bala Lake

-is Llyn Tegid.

0:29:300:29:33

-There's a legend about Tegid Foel,

-a bad man, and his wife, Ceridwen.

0:29:340:29:39

-There was a huge party

-in the kingdom...

0:29:400:29:43

-..and a harpist played there.

0:29:430:29:45

-The harpist heard the birds

-twittering, "vengeance will come".

0:29:470:29:52

-He roamed up the mountain

-to sleep for the night...

0:29:520:29:56

-..and by the following morning,

-the kingdom had been drowned.

0:29:560:30:01

-Such a romantic tale.

0:30:010:30:04

-Do you think we'll get

-a warm welcome in Y Bala?

0:30:140:30:17

-Y Bala is a very welcoming town.

0:30:180:30:20

-You're likely

-to meet a few characters.

0:30:210:30:25

-It's a typically Welsh town.

0:30:250:30:27

-It's a typically Welsh town.

-

-Yes, a town of culture and history.

0:30:270:30:30

-It's a great place to live.

0:30:300:30:32

-Here we are. We've reached Y Bala.

0:30:350:30:37

0:30:390:30:40

-It's windy.

-

-Thank you, Sion.

0:30:400:30:42

-Thank you for the welcome.

0:30:430:30:45

-I'll see you later, Shan.

0:30:450:30:47

-Cheerio!

0:30:470:30:49

-Ta-ta!

0:30:490:30:50

-Let's meet a local man, Gary Jones.

0:30:520:30:54

-Gary Jones

-owns a hairdressing business.

0:30:550:30:59

-He travels around the area

-cutting hair.

0:31:000:31:03

-He took part in the S4C series,

-Y Plas...

0:31:040:31:07

-..where people went back in history

-to learn how people lived...

0:31:070:31:11

-..by playing the role

-of people living in a mansion.

0:31:120:31:15

-Gary was given the role

-of a servant.

0:31:160:31:18

-I'm Gary and I live in Y Bala.

0:31:230:31:25

-I'm 38 and I run my own

-mobile hairdressing business.

0:31:250:31:29

-I've done that for five years...

0:31:300:31:33

-..but I've been a hairdresser

-for 15 years.

0:31:340:31:37

-Local people

-will be absolutely gobsmacked!

0:31:400:31:43

-Gary doesn't seem like the type

-of person who'd want to do that.

0:31:440:31:48

-People will be thrilled.

0:31:480:31:50

-When someone local is on a show,

-we all talk about it.

0:31:500:31:54

-I live with Oscar, my Persian cat.

0:32:010:32:03

-He's great fun

-and he's really clever.

0:32:040:32:08

-Life in the mansion will be

-totally different from my life now.

0:32:120:32:16

-Gary comes over almost every day.

0:32:200:32:23

-If there's a pot of tea brewing

-or a bacon sandwich on the go...

0:32:230:32:28

-..Gary will turn up!

0:32:280:32:30

-He has a twin sister.

-Her name is Linda.

0:32:300:32:33

-We'll miss him when he's on Y Plas

-but we're glad he's going in there.

0:32:330:32:38

-We're all very excited.

0:32:380:32:40

-I'll be glued to the box!

0:32:420:32:45

-I get the feeling it'll be hard work

-but I'll do it all the same.

0:32:470:32:52

-I wouldn't refuse to do any job...

0:32:520:32:55

-..but looking after pigs

-and having to muck out after them?

-Having to shovel pig mess?

0:33:010:33:03

-No!

0:33:040:33:05

-Here on Y Bala High Street,

-there's a statue...

0:33:070:33:10

-..of one of its famous sons -

-Thomas Edward Ellis.

0:33:100:33:14

-Tom Ellis

-was the MP for Merionethshire...

0:33:140:33:18

-..in the late 19th century.

0:33:190:33:21

-He worked hard for Wales

-and the Welsh language.

0:33:210:33:24

-Most of the shops, cafes and

-businesses on the High Street...

0:33:240:33:29

-..have Welsh names.

0:33:290:33:31

-Ria Thomas has a gift shop here,

-as Shan Cothi discovered.

0:33:340:33:38

-I'm on the High Street

-in the centre of Y Bala.

0:33:420:33:45

-It's full of lovely little shops.

0:33:450:33:47

-This one caught my eye.

-I'm going in for a closer look.

0:33:480:33:51

-This shop was opened

-by Ria Thomas three years ago.

0:33:510:33:55

-She sells all sorts of trinkets -

-from decorations to jewellery.

0:33:550:34:01

-Her cards are renowned locally.

0:34:010:34:04

-Ria, you grew up in Y Bala.

0:34:040:34:07

-Why did you return here

-to open a card shop?

0:34:070:34:10

-After leaving college...

0:34:100:34:12

-..I decided I wanted to return

-to the area where I was raised.

0:34:130:34:17

-You make these cards.

0:34:170:34:19

-Where do you make them?

0:34:200:34:22

-I have a workshop at the back.

0:34:220:34:24

-Is it as tidy as this?

-Let's go and have a look at it.

0:34:250:34:29

-I hadn't planned to have a go and

-I was never good at art in school.

0:34:290:34:34

-I obviously hadn't improved.

0:34:340:34:37

-How long does it take you

-to complete a set of cards?

0:34:390:34:45

-I'd say it takes about an hour

-to make and pack 10 cards...

0:34:460:34:51

-..before they go on the shelves.

0:34:510:34:54

-You need concentration

-and discipline.

0:34:540:34:57

-I've made these flowers for years,

-so it comes naturally to me now.

0:35:000:35:06

-I've made a flower here.

0:35:060:35:09

-I don't think anyone

-has seen one like this before.

0:35:090:35:13

-Six petals.

0:35:130:35:16

-I don't know if it's good enough

-for your cards but it is unique.

0:35:160:35:21

-It's good for a first attempt.

0:35:210:35:24

-You're too kind!

0:35:240:35:26

-What do the people of Y Bala think

-of their town and the Penllyn area?

0:35:270:35:32

-This area is wonderful.

0:35:330:35:34

-It's beautiful.

0:35:350:35:36

-We have a lake,

-magnificent mountains and rivers.

0:35:370:35:40

-It's a rural area

-and that hasn't changed.

0:35:400:35:43

-You hear a lot of Welsh here.

0:35:440:35:45

-If you go to Y Bala

-to do your shopping...

0:35:460:35:48

-..you'll always find someone

-to chat to in Welsh.

0:35:490:35:52

-It's good because

-you hear Welsh all the time...

0:35:530:35:57

-..all day.

0:35:570:35:58

-I'm learning Welsh because

-I hear it around me all the time.

0:35:580:36:03

-It's important to learn Welsh

-if you live here.

0:36:030:36:07

-Join me after the break...

0:36:090:36:10

-..when Aled Sam and Bryn Williams

-visit Cerrigydrudion.

-Welcome back.

0:36:310:36:32

-I'm standing on the banks

-of River Tryweryn...

0:36:330:36:36

-..at the point where it meets

-River Dee, near Y Bala.

0:36:360:36:39

-River Tryweryn is world-famous

-as a white water sports river.

0:36:410:36:46

-The National White Water Centre

-is four miles upriver from Y Bala.

0:36:460:36:51

-Llyn Celyn, a large reservoir,

-is a mile from the Centre.

0:36:530:36:57

-The village of Capel Celyn

-was drowned to create the reservoir.

0:36:580:37:02

-In the 1960s, the city of Liverpool

-needed some more water...

0:37:030:37:07

-..and they came up with the idea

-of creating a reservoir...

0:37:070:37:11

-..by flooding the valley

-in which Capel Celyn stood.

0:37:110:37:15

-The people

-of Penllyn and Wales said no...

0:37:170:37:20

-..but the voice of the city

-of Liverpool was stronger.

0:37:210:37:24

-They drowned the valley in 1965.

0:37:250:37:27

-River Dee flows north west

-from Y Bala towards the sea.

0:37:310:37:35

-Let's follow the river for 15 miles

-to the village of Cerrigydrudion.

0:37:350:37:40

-Bryn Jones and Llyr, his son,

-have a farm here.

0:37:430:37:47

-They produce rapeseed oil there,

-as Bryn Williams discovered.

0:37:470:37:51

-Bryn Jones and Llyr Jones

-produce rapeseed oil.

0:38:160:38:19

-Rapeseed oil, with its distinct

-colour, is great for cooking.

0:38:200:38:25

-What's the name of your oil?

0:38:280:38:29

-What's the name of your oil?

-

-Blodyn Aur.

0:38:290:38:30

-Gold flower - the flower

-and the fields are gold.

0:38:310:38:35

-The oil is golden too, isn't it?

0:38:350:38:37

-Yes. It's golden

-and it's totally clear.

0:38:380:38:40

-It's a lovely sight.

0:38:410:38:43

-Yes. It's a great colour.

0:38:440:38:45

-It has a really unique flavour.

0:38:470:38:50

-It tastes great

-and you can cook with it.

0:38:510:38:54

-Yes. It's really good in stir-fries,

-where you use a high heat.

0:38:550:38:59

-The nutrients in it aren't affected

-by high temperatures.

0:38:590:39:04

-It certainly works as a cooking oil.

0:39:060:39:09

-You and your rapeseed oil

-will take over the world!

0:39:110:39:15

-Yes, in ten years' time!

0:39:150:39:17

-Llyr, this is

-where the magic happens.

0:39:350:39:38

-Explain the process

-from the field to the bottle please.

0:39:380:39:42

-We bring it on trailers

-from the fields to the farm...

0:39:430:39:46

-..and we pump it into the hoppers,

-where it's stored.

0:39:460:39:50

-It comes up the auger

-to this filtering machine.

0:39:510:39:55

-Stones and foreign bodies

-are removed here.

0:39:550:39:58

-The seeds are black?

0:39:580:40:00

-I assumed they'd be yellow

-because of the yellow flowers.

0:40:000:40:04

-I was wrong. These pods are black.

0:40:040:40:07

-These pods contain 40% oil.

0:40:080:40:10

-It then passes through this auger

-to the hopper...

0:40:130:40:17

-..and then it's heated

-in that small tank over there.

0:40:180:40:21

-It then falls into the press.

0:40:230:40:25

-Once it's warm, it's ready to press.

0:40:260:40:29

-Yes, and there's an auger

-inside here.

0:40:290:40:32

-There's a conical section here.

0:40:320:40:34

-The pods are squeezed to the end

-and it gets narrower and narrower...

0:40:360:40:41

-..and the oil drips down,

-into this tank.

0:40:420:40:45

-What's left here

-are the protein pellets...

0:40:460:40:49

-..which fall on the conveyer belt.

0:40:490:40:52

-Protein pellets? For what purpose?

0:40:520:40:54

-Protein pellets? For what purpose?

-

-For cattle feed.

0:40:540:40:55

-It's 32% protein.

-It contains 10% oil.

0:40:560:40:58

-It's also rich in vitamins.

0:40:590:41:01

-It's an excellent feed

-for our cattle.

0:41:010:41:06

-It saves you buying feed

-for the animals.

0:41:060:41:09

-Yes, so we save money there.

0:41:090:41:11

-The oil then flows into the tank

-under our feet.

0:41:110:41:15

-It then passes through the filter.

0:41:190:41:22

-Llyr, what's happening here?

0:41:240:41:27

-This is the reason

-we produce such good oil.

0:41:270:41:30

-We use this to filter it

-down to one micron.

0:41:300:41:33

-This husk is removed from the oil.

0:41:340:41:36

-This was still in the oil?

0:41:370:41:39

-Yes, it was in the oil

-which came out of the tank.

0:41:390:41:43

-It attaches itself to the side.

0:41:430:41:45

-Once it's gone a quarter of an inch

-down the mesh, it's clean.

0:41:460:41:50

-It filters itself.

0:41:500:41:52

-Once it's nice and clean,

-we flick the switch...

0:41:520:41:55

-..then it passes through

-the candle filter and into the tank.

0:41:580:42:03

-The colour is fantastic.

0:42:200:42:22

-It's golden, like the sun.

0:42:230:42:25

-Yes. It really is outstanding.

0:42:250:42:27

-Golden flower is a good name for it!

0:42:280:42:30

-When you see it through the bottle,

-it looks incredible.

0:42:300:42:34

-Have a taste.

0:42:350:42:36

-Have a taste.

-

-Thank you.

0:42:360:42:37

-It's quite nutty.

0:42:380:42:40

-You can taste the sun

-and your hard work in that oil.

0:42:430:42:47

-It's a great product.

0:42:470:42:48

-It's a great product.

-

-Thank you.

0:42:480:42:50

-Let's stay in Cerrigydrudion,

-as we join Aled Sam in Hendre Llan.

0:42:590:43:04

-For help to follow the programme...

0:43:050:43:08

-..use the website,

-the app and the subtitles.

0:43:080:43:11

-Had you known how much time

-and money the renovation involved...

0:43:240:43:29

-..would you have bought the house?

0:43:300:43:32

-Yes, we would... wouldn't we?

0:43:330:43:35

-Geoff, there's a glazed look

-on your face!

0:43:350:43:38

-I wouldn't have bought it.

0:43:380:43:40

-I was the one who wanted the house.

0:43:400:43:42

-The renovations were very expensive.

0:43:430:43:45

-The problem is

-Carys wants everything bang-on...

0:43:460:43:49

-..and I think that probably cost us

-even more money!

0:43:490:43:53

-Having said that, all the work

-has been done properly.

0:43:540:43:58

-I have no regrets about anything

-we've had done to the house.

0:43:580:44:02

-It's cosy.

0:44:040:44:05

-Are you happy with it?

0:44:050:44:07

-Are you happy with it?

-

-Yes, we're very happy with it.

0:44:070:44:09

-You don't want to do it again?

0:44:120:44:14

-You don't want to do it again?

-

-I'd love to do it one more time!

0:44:140:44:16

-It's an enormous house!

-Don't you feel a bit lost here?

0:44:180:44:22

-I retreat to the west wing

-when we've argued!

0:44:230:44:26

-It's handy when he snores too!

0:44:270:44:29

-Geoff takes care

-of the manual labour.

0:44:300:44:33

-He sings your praises because

-you're the one with the vision.

0:44:330:44:38

-Is that true?

0:44:390:44:41

-Yes.

-I have a very active imagination!

0:44:410:44:44

-Geoff was sceptical, but I could

-imagine how this house would look.

0:44:470:44:51

-Do you collect specific things?

0:45:080:45:11

-Yes - I know what I like.

0:45:140:45:15

-I'm fond of Gaudy Welsh.

-I have a few Gaudy Welsh pieces.

0:45:160:45:20

-I enjoy

-owning a whole collection of things.

0:45:200:45:23

-There are some pieces of

-Royal Worcester on the mantelpiece.

0:45:240:45:29

-They're colourful and they

-complement the colours of the room.

0:45:290:45:34

-Did you

-decorate and furnish the rooms?

0:45:340:45:37

-Yes, I chose everything.

0:45:370:45:39

-I started with the curtains

-in this room...

0:45:390:45:42

-..and I chose a carpet, a sofa

-and some wallpaper to go with them.

0:45:430:45:48

-Why did you buy the curtains first?

0:45:490:45:52

-Simply because I liked them.

0:45:520:45:54

-I just knew I wanted them.

0:45:550:45:57

-Everything else stems from

-the colours in the curtains.

0:45:570:46:01

-Yes, that's right.

0:46:010:46:03

-The wonderful conservatory

-capitalises on the stunning views.

0:46:060:46:11

-It also draws light into the house.

0:46:110:46:14

-The French bedroom furniture is

-another example of Carys's keen eye.

0:46:260:46:31

-This seems old to me, Geoff.

0:46:430:46:45

-Yes, this house is listed

-because of the staircase.

0:46:450:46:49

-The people at CADW

-told us we mustn't damage it.

0:46:510:46:55

-This is original.

0:46:570:46:58

-We tried to match the stairs

-when we had these panels done.

0:47:010:47:06

-This is the most important part

-of the house!

0:47:080:47:11

-Close your eyes for a second.

0:47:140:47:17

-There you go!

0:47:210:47:22

-Even James Bond

-doesn't have one of these!

0:47:240:47:27

-A glory hole!

0:47:290:47:30

-Carys and Geoff are very fond

-of inviting friends to the house.

0:47:310:47:35

-In addition to this secret bar, they

-have a wine cellar under the stairs.

0:47:350:47:41

-I'd like to move to a flat

-with no garden!

0:47:530:47:56

-I'd chuck flowerpots off the veranda

-when the plants were dead!
