-Hello, I'm Ifan Jones Evans.

0:00:300:00:32

-In this series, I'll travel Wales...

0:00:320:00:36

-..meeting all kinds of people

-who love collecting things.

0:00:360:00:40

-From records to autographs,

-from shoes to bottles...

0:00:400:00:44

-..there are remarkable objects

-in every corner of Wales.

0:00:440:00:48

-I look forward to seeing them all.

0:00:490:00:51

-Welcome to Caru Casglu.

0:00:510:00:53

-For help to follow the programme...

0:00:530:00:56

-..use the website,

-the app and the subtitles.

0:00:560:01:00

-This week on Caru Casglu...

0:01:020:01:04

-..old agricultural equipment

-in mid Wales...

0:01:040:01:08

-..postboxes in the north...

0:01:100:01:13

-..but we start in South Wales.

0:01:140:01:17

-Here in Cardiff, old Austins

-and motoring club badges...

0:01:200:01:25

-..are the passion of Graham Thomas.

0:01:250:01:27

-He's ready to see me.

0:01:280:01:29

-How are you, Graham?

0:01:410:01:42

-How are you, Graham?

-

-How are you? Welcome. Come on.

0:01:420:01:45

-Thanks. It's nice to meet you.

0:01:450:01:47

-How would you

-describe your collection?

0:01:530:01:56

-Pre-war Austins.

0:01:560:01:57

-Tell us what these magazines are.

0:01:570:02:01

-This is a passion that grew.

0:02:010:02:04

-I was interested

-in motoring literature.

0:02:050:02:08

-I also liked Austins,

-and that led to collecting.

0:02:080:02:12

-As it happens,

-this was the first piece I got.

0:02:120:02:15

-It's also the oldest, 1925.

0:02:150:02:17

-It's a catalogue

-of available models.

0:02:180:02:21

-The whole range, not just one model.

0:02:210:02:24

-Advertising what they had for sale.

0:02:240:02:27

-These are quite valuable.

0:02:270:02:30

-This is worth

-about 150 to 180 now.

0:02:300:02:35

-It's in excellent condition.

0:02:350:02:38

-So, this was the first?

0:02:390:02:40

-So, this was the first?

-

-Yes, that's right.

0:02:400:02:42

-But I think this is the star.

0:02:420:02:44

-It was a bargain.

0:02:440:02:45

-I got it for 60,

-but it should have been around 200.

0:02:450:02:49

-It's in colour.

0:02:500:02:52

-This came out in 1933.

0:02:520:02:54

-They were published every October,

-just before the Motor Show.

0:02:540:02:58

-They're smart cars, aren't they?

0:02:580:02:59

-They're smart cars, aren't they?

-

-They are, solid.

0:02:590:03:01

-This model is the Westminster.

0:03:010:03:03

-There was one found

-on a farm near Newtown.

0:03:040:03:09

-The yellow one?

0:03:090:03:10

-Only very few of this model

-still exist.

0:03:110:03:13

-What period do these cover?

0:03:240:03:27

-The oldest is 1925.

0:03:270:03:30

-They go up to 1948,

-something like that.

0:03:310:03:36

-After that,

-cars had more modern shapes.

0:03:360:03:42

-I wasn't as interested in those.

0:03:420:03:44

-Ones with headlamps

-in the wings and so on.

0:03:440:03:48

-These had more character.

0:03:480:03:50

-These are the magazines.

0:03:500:03:52

-But I understand that you have

-a collection of badges as well.

0:03:520:03:56

-That's another story!

0:03:570:03:58

-There's a fine collection there,

-and some special ones here as well.

0:04:050:04:10

-Are these all from Wales?

0:04:100:04:12

-Yes, they all have

-a Welsh connection.

0:04:120:04:16

-I've tried to specialize,

-but they're so difficult to find.

0:04:170:04:21

-These were in vogue

-in the 1950s and so on.

0:04:210:04:25

-Why did you start to collect badges?

0:04:250:04:28

-Other people were buying

-the Models of Yesteryear packets.

0:04:290:04:34

-They were 3, 4, 5 each.

0:04:340:04:37

-The badges were the same price.

0:04:370:04:39

-Because everyone

-collected the others...

0:04:390:04:42

-..I decided to collect the badges.

0:04:430:04:45

-I like the artwork.

0:04:450:04:46

-That one in the middle.

0:04:470:04:48

-Builth Wells & District Motor Club.

0:04:480:04:51

-I have a few from mid Wales,

-Brecknock, Epynt, Aberystwyth.

0:04:510:04:55

-There are a couple

-from the north, Conwy and Rhyl.

0:04:560:04:59

-This is the only one all in Welsh.

0:04:590:05:03

-Cymdeithas Genweirwyr Plu Cymru.

0:05:040:05:08

-Fly Fishers.

0:05:080:05:09

-It's not easy to get hold of these.

-It must have been quite a task.

0:05:110:05:15

-This is the result

-of 50 years of collecting.

0:05:160:05:20

-How many of these do you have?

0:05:200:05:23

-I thought I had about 200...

0:05:250:05:28

-..but it's closer to 300.

0:05:290:05:30

-I've sold about 70 of them.

0:05:310:05:32

-You've kept the creme de la creme.

0:05:330:05:35

-You've kept the creme de la creme.

-

-I've tried to.

0:05:350:05:36

-But you haven't seen

-the creme de la creme yet!

0:05:360:05:40

-This is the most valuable one I own.

0:05:500:05:54

-Can you read it?

0:05:540:05:56

-Cardiff Aeroplane Club.

0:05:560:05:59

-At the base there

-is the word "Eheda".

0:05:590:06:04

-It's great.

0:06:060:06:07

-You wouldn't believe

-how much this goes for.

0:06:070:06:11

-It's the most

-I've heard for a badge.

0:06:110:06:14

-How much?

0:06:140:06:15

-How much?

-

-350.

0:06:150:06:16

-Good grief. Did you pay that much?

0:06:170:06:19

-No, but I can't remember

-where I got it.

0:06:190:06:22

-You had it already.

0:06:220:06:23

-You had it already.

-

-I've never been in that class.

0:06:230:06:26

-So you had already had this one.

0:06:260:06:28

-Yes, and when I realized that,

-I was like this!

0:06:290:06:33

-What's in this?

0:06:360:06:37

-That's the centrepiece

-of the collection, in a way.

0:06:390:06:44

-SWAC, South Wales Automobile Club.

0:06:440:06:47

-A posh club.

0:06:470:06:49

-People who owned garages and so on.

0:06:500:06:52

-In the first year,

-there were about 85.

0:06:530:06:56

-The year after,

-there were 97 entries.

0:06:560:06:59

-Say that 150 badges

-were made every year.

0:06:590:07:02

-These were handed out.

0:07:030:07:05

-They're of such quality,

-they wouldn't be put on the car.

0:07:050:07:09

-They're very special.

0:07:100:07:11

-That's the banner of Owain Glyndwr

-on the 1938 badge.

0:07:120:07:16

-In 1939, they had a W for Wales.

0:07:170:07:22

-At the top, in the centre,

-the old lady from Kidwelly.

0:07:220:07:27

-Am I right in saying that this rally

-only ran from 1935 to 1939?

0:07:270:07:31

-Yes.

0:07:320:07:33

-That's why

-they're so rare and valuable.

0:07:330:07:36

-I see.

0:07:360:07:37

-Exceptional.

0:07:380:07:39

-I've heard there's something special

-in the garage too.

0:07:390:07:42

-You haven't seen

-the old car, have you?

0:07:430:07:45

-No, I haven't seen it yet.

0:07:450:07:47

-I was keeping that as a surprise.

0:07:470:07:50

-Let's go out to see it.

0:07:500:07:51

-Let's go out to see it.

-

-Yes, lead on.

0:07:510:07:52

-Well, well, well.

0:07:550:07:56

-Graham, it's a beauty,

-as they say in Tregaron.

0:07:580:08:01

-I'm glad you think so.

0:08:020:08:03

-I'm glad you think so.

-

-A real beauty.

0:08:030:08:04

-I'll be careful not to hit the door.

0:08:040:08:07

-It started first time.

0:08:100:08:11

-I can't wait, Graham.

0:08:170:08:19

-I can say now

-that I've been in an Austin 16.

0:08:210:08:25

-Not many people can say that.

0:08:270:08:30

-No, not these days.

0:08:300:08:32

-You'll have to keep an eye out

-for one to buy.

0:08:320:08:35

-How much would one cost?

0:08:360:08:37

-About 4,000 or 5,000.

0:08:380:08:39

-But one did sell at auction

-not long ago for 15,000.

0:08:400:08:45

-Off we go then, Graham.

0:08:450:08:48

-It's running well.

0:08:480:08:50

-It's accelerating well.

0:08:510:08:54

-What size is the engine?

0:08:540:08:56

-It's 2.2 litres.

0:08:560:08:59

-Driving it around

-must give you pleasure.

0:09:010:09:04

-The interior is as good as new.

0:09:040:09:08

-The previous owner rebuilt it.

0:09:080:09:11

-There's an armrest as well.

0:09:120:09:14

-There's an armrest as well.

-

-That is comfortable, yes.

0:09:140:09:15

-It's like sitting

-in an armchair in the lounge.

0:09:160:09:19

-A comfy chair at home.

0:09:190:09:20

-It's one of the most

-comfortable cars I've ever sat in.

0:09:210:09:25

-How often do you take it for a spin?

0:09:250:09:28

-I don't bother in winter.

0:09:280:09:30

-I think the last time

-was back in August.

0:09:300:09:36

-You told me that you've had this car

-for 17 years.

0:09:370:09:42

-Are you going to keep it

-or buy another one?

0:09:420:09:46

-No, I won't sell it.

0:09:460:09:48

-There's no point.

0:09:480:09:50

-This one goes like a bomb.

0:09:500:09:52

-This one goes like a bomb.

-

-It does run well.

0:09:520:09:53

-This will be the last car

-in your collection.

0:09:540:09:57

-I'm having a great time!

0:09:570:09:59

-It must be a nice feeling

-to drive such a head-turning car.

0:10:000:10:03

-I wave at them, like the Queen!

0:10:040:10:06

-Like this! Hello! Hello!

0:10:060:10:08

-In we go.

0:10:120:10:13

-Graham, many thanks.

0:10:170:10:19

-That was a special experience.

0:10:190:10:21

-Any time. I loved it.

0:10:210:10:22

-Any time. I loved it.

-

-I've really enjoyed your company.

0:10:220:10:25

-Thank you for the spin in the car

-and for showing your collection.

0:10:250:10:30

-I'm now in Caernarfon

-to meet the Rev. Gwenda Richards.

0:10:520:10:57

-I wonder what she collects.

0:10:570:10:59

-Hello, Gwenda.

0:11:080:11:09

-How are you? Welcome.

0:11:090:11:11

-I've got some letters to post.

0:11:110:11:13

-Have you seen a postbox?

0:11:130:11:15

-Do you have any?

0:11:150:11:17

-Gwenda Richards, thank you

-for welcoming us into your home.

0:11:290:11:33

-You collect postboxes now,

-but you've always collected things.

0:11:340:11:38

-Always.

0:11:390:11:40

-I'm an instinctive collector.

0:11:400:11:42

-Why the interest in postboxes?

0:11:430:11:45

-Why the interest in postboxes?

-

-Oh, that's a big question.

0:11:450:11:48

-I'm not exactly sure.

0:11:490:11:50

-It goes back to my childhood.

0:11:510:11:53

-I liked to see the postman coming.

0:11:540:11:56

-A child expecting birthday cards

-and so on.

0:11:570:12:01

-But I went beyond that.

0:12:010:12:03

-I'd send away for anything.

0:12:030:12:05

-Whenever my mother

-got any kind of magazine...

0:12:050:12:10

-..I'd go through it

-looking for freebies.

0:12:110:12:14

-I didn't need the freebies,

-but I loved to collect things.

0:12:140:12:19

-So, there was something

-in the post for me every day.

0:12:200:12:23

-But it was something

-to do with the postman.

0:12:240:12:27

-The postman calling and so on.

0:12:270:12:29

-And the colour red attracts as well.

0:12:290:12:33

-Postboxes have always attracted me.

0:12:330:12:36

-If I see one in a shop window,

-it draws my eye like a magnet!

0:12:370:12:41

-I have to rein myself in.

0:12:410:12:43

-"No, Gwenda, you don't need it!"

0:12:430:12:45

-Let's have a look at them.

0:12:460:12:48

-Around how many postboxes

-do you have in your collection?

0:12:540:12:58

-I've never counted them...

0:12:590:13:01

-..but I suppose

-there are between 300 and 500.

0:13:010:13:05

-Did you buy them all

-or are some gifts?

0:13:060:13:11

-Many are gifts,

-but I've also bought many.

0:13:110:13:15

-It's nice to look at them

-and recall where you bought them...

0:13:150:13:19

-..and remember who gave them to me.

0:13:190:13:22

-This one was given to me

-by good friends from Borth-y-gest.

0:13:220:13:27

-Gwenda R from Fflur and Robin.

0:13:290:13:31

-There are many, like that one,

-that evoke happy memories.

0:13:320:13:37

-You have a series of postboxes

-on those shelves too.

0:13:370:13:41

-This is now rare series, I expect.

0:13:420:13:43

-They're iron.

0:13:440:13:45

-They are miniature replicas

-of actual postboxes.

0:13:450:13:50

-Tell me about these pretty ones

-on the top here.

0:13:510:13:54

-They are very nice.

-They are among my favourites.

0:13:540:13:57

-I don't know much about them.

0:13:570:13:59

-They're signed by Jenny Bell,

-who apparently painted them.

0:14:000:14:04

-They're all hand-made.

0:14:040:14:07

-Very nice, I must say.

0:14:070:14:08

-There are several money boxes

-on the dresser and here behind me.

0:14:090:14:14

-A postbox does lend itself

-to being a money box.

0:14:140:14:18

-I've used some

-to collect 20p pieces and so on.

0:14:180:14:23

-Do any still have money in them?

0:14:240:14:26

-Do any still have money in them?

-

-No, unfortunately.

0:14:260:14:27

-There are several Postman Pats

-on the table to your left.

0:14:290:14:33

-Yes, the child in me

-led me to buy those.

0:14:330:14:37

-Here's another cupboard

-full of postboxes as well.

0:14:500:14:53

-Does every shelf contain

-a different series?

0:14:540:14:57

-These are a series.

0:14:570:14:59

-These are also a series.

0:15:020:15:03

-The ones on the top shelf are nice.

0:15:070:15:10

-They're traditional, as it were.

0:15:100:15:12

-They're traditional, as it were.

-

-I think they're hand-made.

0:15:120:15:15

-At the bottom is a postman

-with a dog biting his leg.

0:15:160:15:21

-I like that!

0:15:210:15:22

-This is special.

0:15:220:15:23

-This is special.

-

-I really like that one.

0:15:230:15:26

-I understand that those on top

-are very special.

0:15:260:15:30

-They're among my favourites

-because they're so detailed.

0:15:300:15:35

-Of them all, I really like

-the girl with the teddy.

0:15:360:15:40

-There's something really nice

-about that one.

0:15:400:15:43

-That's among my favourites.

0:15:440:15:46

-There are some real ones there.

0:15:460:15:48

-They are the creme de la creme.

0:15:490:15:52

-Let's have a look at them.

0:15:520:15:53

-And here they are, Gwenda.

0:15:580:16:00

-Are these original boxes

-used by the Royal Mail?

0:16:000:16:04

-Yes, all three of them.

0:16:040:16:06

-One's from the reign of George V...

0:16:060:16:10

-..and two

-from the reign of George VI.

0:16:100:16:13

-How did you get hold of these?

0:16:130:16:15

-I used to pass that one regularly.

0:16:150:16:19

-One day, to my astonishment,

-it wasn't there.

0:16:190:16:23

-They'd replaced it

-with a modern, Elizabeth II one.

0:16:230:16:27

-I decided to stop the car

-to ask where the old one was.

0:16:270:16:32

-I was told

-it had been taken to Porthmadog.

0:16:330:16:36

-To the main office in Porthmadog.

0:16:360:16:39

-I went there to ask after it

-and they showed it to me.

0:16:390:16:44

-I asked if I could buy it.

0:16:440:16:45

-They agreed,

-and that's how it got here.

0:16:460:16:48

-It's a substantial postbox.

0:16:490:16:51

-It's a beautiful one,

-especially for a collector.

0:16:510:16:55

-It's different,

-and as you can see if I open it...

0:16:570:17:01

-..it's different inside as well.

0:17:010:17:04

-Very nice.

0:17:050:17:06

-Thank you very much

-for sharing your collection.

0:17:070:17:11

-You're welcome.

0:17:110:17:12

-It's been lovely having you

-and to look at them anew.

0:17:130:17:17

-I didn't think I had so many!

0:17:170:17:19

-As a farmer, I can't wait

-to see this next collection.

0:17:240:17:29

-I've come to the Banwy valley

-to meet Alwyn Hughes.

0:17:290:17:33

-He collects old farming equipment,

-and he's quite a character.

0:17:330:17:37

-Hello, how are you?

0:17:420:17:43

-Alwyn, it's nice to meet you.

0:17:430:17:45

-Alwyn collects all kinds of things.

0:17:470:17:49

-Some of his reed candle stands

-are 500 years old.

0:17:510:17:57

-He also collects old butter stamps,

-and much more besides.

0:17:580:18:03

-Tell me what exactly you collect.

0:18:030:18:06

-In a word, Ifan, everything.

0:18:060:18:08

-Things from the past, naturally.

0:18:090:18:11

-Crafts of yesteryear.

0:18:120:18:14

-My tactics are,

-buy when you have to...

0:18:140:18:17

-..but scrounge as much as possible.

0:18:170:18:20

-It works as well.

0:18:210:18:23

-Most of what you see

-comes from Montgomeryshire.

0:18:240:18:28

-From this area,

-and made by craftsmen.

0:18:280:18:31

-I'm familiar

-with what's in front of you.

0:18:310:18:34

-That's equipment to make butter.

0:18:340:18:37

-That's equipment to make butter.

-

-These are butter stamps.

0:18:370:18:38

-Some called them prints.

0:18:390:18:40

-These were the original ones.

0:18:410:18:43

-Abstract patterns.

0:18:430:18:45

-They'd make the butter...

0:18:460:18:49

-..then take it out of the tub...

0:18:500:18:53

-..and form it into a round shape

-with the butter pads...

0:18:540:18:58

-..then stamp the butter.

0:18:580:19:02

-The idea was to take them to market.

0:19:020:19:04

-People at the market

-recognized the stamps.

0:19:050:19:08

-I hear that you also have

-a fine collection of old traps.

0:19:130:19:17

-It might sound a bit cruel...

0:19:180:19:22

-..but I have

-about a hundred traps all told.

0:19:220:19:25

-In the old days,

-traps were important.

0:19:250:19:28

-Rabbits and so on

-were caught in traps.

0:19:290:19:31

-That was income for the farm.

0:19:320:19:34

-This one here is very unusual.

0:19:340:19:38

-Do you have an idea about its use?

0:19:380:19:41

-No, I don't.

0:19:410:19:42

-It's very small.

0:19:420:19:44

-Is it a mousetrap?

0:19:440:19:46

-It is possible

-to use it as a mousetrap.

0:19:460:19:50

-The jaws are two inches.

0:19:500:19:52

-It's a kingfisher trap.

0:19:530:19:55

-I have got more to show you, Ifan.

0:19:570:20:00

-We'll go out to see what we have.

0:20:000:20:03

-Well, well, well.

0:20:090:20:10

-Goodness me, Alwyn.

0:20:110:20:12

-This is what I call a collection.

0:20:130:20:15

-Is this the complete collection?

0:20:160:20:19

-Is this the complete collection?

-

-No, Ifan, it isn't.

0:20:190:20:21

-This is about a quarter of it.

0:20:210:20:23

-How long have you been collecting?

0:20:240:20:26

-About ten years, in earnest.

0:20:260:20:29

-There are traps everywhere,

-and shears as well.

0:20:290:20:34

-I've found four local shears.

0:20:340:20:36

-This is one of them.

0:20:370:20:38

-These are Tanat shears.

0:20:390:20:40

-These are Tanat shears.

-

-From the Tanat valley?

0:20:400:20:42

-These here are Wddyn shears,

-from the Llanwddyn area.

0:20:430:20:47

-These are areas

-with a lot of sheep.

0:20:480:20:51

-The blades on this one are shorter.

0:20:510:20:53

-The blades on this one are shorter.

-

-And narrower.

0:20:530:20:55

-Older than those

-are these two shears.

0:20:550:21:00

-These are Prysor shears,

-from the Trawsfynydd area.

0:21:010:21:07

-The spring on these is open.

0:21:070:21:10

-Then there's this one,

-the last of the local shears.

0:21:110:21:16

-Hiraethog shears.

0:21:170:21:18

-The blades are slightly thinner.

0:21:180:21:21

-These cut like a razor.

0:21:210:21:22

-Do you sharpen them?

0:21:230:21:24

-Do you sharpen them?

-

-I notice that you have shaved.

0:21:240:21:26

-You could have given me a trim!

0:21:260:21:28

-Do you sharpen them yourself?

0:21:280:21:30

-No, these were done by an expert.

0:21:310:21:33

-I must be careful!

0:21:330:21:34

-This is a treasure trove.

0:21:390:21:42

-Those seats there are special.

0:21:420:21:46

-The Jarmain and the Ogle

-are pretty rare.

0:21:460:21:50

-Makes like Ransome

-and Bamford were more common.

0:21:500:21:55

-What have you got in that jar there?

0:21:560:21:59

-Do you recognize it?

0:22:000:22:01

-What on...?

0:22:020:22:03

-A mole.

0:22:040:22:05

-Yes, that's right, it is a mole.

0:22:050:22:09

-I've never seen a white one.

0:22:090:22:12

-Yes, an albino mole.

0:22:120:22:15

-Yes, an albino mole.

-

-Goodness me!

0:22:150:22:16

-Have you named it?

0:22:160:22:18

-No. Any suggestions?

0:22:180:22:20

-Ifan!

0:22:200:22:21

-Why not?

0:22:220:22:23

-Does the tractor have a name?

0:22:240:22:26

-Yes, it's called Trefor.

0:22:260:22:28

-Trefor the tractor.

0:22:280:22:30

-Why Trefor?

0:22:300:22:31

-I bought it from a man

-called Trefor Owen.

0:22:310:22:35

-From Welshpool.

0:22:350:22:37

-And this is the grey Fergie.

0:22:370:22:39

-This came after shire horses,

-to all intents.

0:22:390:22:43

-The little Fordson came first,

-but this was the big development.

0:22:430:22:48

-Alwyn, thank you very much.

0:22:480:22:50

-Goodbye, now.

-I've been learning Welsh

-for six years.

0:23:310:23:37

-I enjoy learning Welsh.

0:23:370:23:40

-It's a challenge.

0:23:410:23:43

-I don't work any more.

0:23:440:23:46

-I'm old.

0:23:460:23:47

-I've retired.

0:23:480:23:49

-I go to art classes.

0:23:500:23:55

-I help at a church...

0:23:570:24:01

-..and I also help at a charity shop.

0:24:030:24:08

-I would really like to be

-in a Welsh-speaking situation.

0:24:080:24:14

-That would be the best way...

0:24:160:24:19

-..for me to practise

-speaking Welsh...

0:24:200:24:23

-..and to improve my Welsh.

0:24:240:24:26

-It'll be a good experience for me

-to spend time with a Welsh family...

0:24:270:24:33

-..to practise

-speaking the language.

0:24:330:24:37

-This is your last feed

-before I go away for two days.

0:24:380:24:42

-ten minutes from Carmarthen.

0:25:030:25:09

-We worked in Patagonia for a year

-as Welsh development officers.

0:25:100:25:16

-We came back in February.

0:25:160:25:18

-We've lived in this house

-for six months.

0:25:180:25:22

-We've enjoyed being here.

-and he's eight years old.

-That's Miriam Elena Haf.

0:25:400:25:43

-She's just had her fifth birthday.

0:25:430:25:45

-Look at the camera, Miriam.

0:25:460:25:48

-It's wonderful to be able to help

-someone practise speaking Welsh.

0:25:520:25:58

-It really is great.

0:25:580:25:59

-As a Welsh learner myself,

-I know how important it is...

0:26:000:26:04

-..to live

-in a Welsh-speaking community...

0:26:050:26:08

-..and to speak the language

-every day.

0:26:080:26:11

-Hello! Welcome.

0:26:190:26:20

-Thank you.

0:26:210:26:22

-Nice to meet you.

-Hello.

0:26:320:26:34

-Welcome to Dyffryn Croes.

0:26:340:26:36

-Welcome to Dyffryn Croes.

-

-Thank you.

0:26:360:26:37

-These are our children.

0:26:370:26:39

-These are our children.

-

-Hello.

0:26:390:26:40

-What's your name?

0:26:400:26:42

-Ifan.

0:26:430:26:44

-Ifan.

-

-Hello.

0:26:440:26:45

-What about you? What's your name?

0:26:460:26:48

-What about you? What's your name?

-

-Miriam.

0:26:480:26:50

-Those are two great names.

0:26:520:26:54

-I hope you enjoy your time here.

-We have a lot of things planned.

0:26:550:26:59

-Are you ready?

0:27:000:27:01

-Are you ready?

-

-Yes, I'm read?y.

0:27:010:27:03

-What shall we do?

0:27:030:27:04

-The first thing on the list

-is a little bit of painting.

0:27:050:27:08

-Oh, very good.

0:27:090:27:10

-Oh, very good.

-

-Painting furniture.

0:27:100:27:11

-I've never done it before

-but I look forward to it.

0:27:120:27:15

-Ready?

0:27:160:27:17

-Ready?

-

-Yes, but I need to get changed.

0:27:170:27:20

-Yes, of course.

0:27:200:27:21

-Thank you.

0:27:220:27:23

-Tito and Ann-Marie are teachers...

0:27:240:27:28

-..but Ann-Marie is also keen

-on renovating furniture.

0:27:280:27:32

-Our aim today

-is to transform this item.

0:27:330:27:37

-I bought it very cheaply online...

0:27:390:27:42

-..but I don't like the colour.

0:27:420:27:45

-I have some light blue paint

-for this.

0:27:480:27:52

-I need your help.

0:27:530:27:55

-I'll try.

0:27:560:27:58

-Let's give this chest a makeover.

0:27:590:28:02

-This is special furniture paint.

0:28:020:28:07

-I'll also use a special brush.

0:28:080:28:11

-It makes a big difference.

0:28:120:28:14

-The brush is very important.

0:28:150:28:16

-The brush is very important.

-

-Yes, it is.

0:28:160:28:17

-Where do we start? The top?

0:28:180:28:21

-I'll take these off the drawers.

0:28:250:28:28

-Are you going to change them?

0:28:290:28:33

-What's the Welsh word for knob?

0:28:330:28:35

-What's the Welsh word for knob?

-

-Bwlyn.

0:28:350:28:36

-Yes, we'll change them.

0:28:370:28:39

-We could paint these,

-but I've got some nice ones here...

0:28:390:28:44

-..so we'll change them.

0:28:450:28:46

-What do you think of that?

0:28:510:28:53

-Let's see if it passes the test.

0:28:530:28:56

-Oh, that's lovely.

0:28:560:28:57

-Are you happy?

0:28:590:29:00

-Are you happy?

-

-I'm happy, if you're happy.

0:29:000:29:02

-Esther is a lovely lady.

0:29:030:29:05

-It's great to see

-such commitment to the language.

0:29:050:29:09

-When you're as enthusiastic as her

-about the Welsh language...

0:29:090:29:14

-..it's good to have an intense

-period like this, with a family...

0:29:150:29:19

-..where you do normal things

-rather than formal tasks.

0:29:190:29:24

-It gives her a chance to practise

-her Welsh on an everyday level.

0:29:240:29:30

-After a spot of painting,

-it's lunchtime.

0:29:320:29:35

-You did a great job.

0:29:370:29:39

-Come back and do more painting!

0:29:400:29:42

-What would you eat for lunch

-in Indonesia?

0:29:460:29:52

-Rice, with vegetables...

0:29:540:29:56

-..and meat or fish.

0:29:570:30:01

-What sort of fish would you cook?

0:30:030:30:05

-The fish in Indonesia are different

-from the fish you have here.

0:30:060:30:11

-I can't give you the names

-in English.

0:30:110:30:15

-In Indonesian cooking, we fry food.

0:30:170:30:22

-Fried food is delicious...

0:30:230:30:25

-..but I think

-we should eat less fat.

0:30:270:30:33

-Yes.

0:30:340:30:35

-Next, it's time for some gardening

-and some chatting.

0:30:380:30:43

-Right then, Esther.

-These are the flowers.

0:30:460:30:49

-We want to pot them.

0:30:490:30:51

-You're learning Welsh, of course.

0:30:560:30:59

-Yes, I'm learning Welsh.

0:30:590:31:01

-I'm going to relearn French

-next year.

0:31:020:31:07

-I've got to be careful...

0:31:090:31:12

-..that I don't get

-the two languages mixed up.

0:31:120:31:17

-We'll see.

0:31:180:31:19

-Welsh is important to me because

-I live in Wales, not in France.

0:31:200:31:25

-Indonesian is my mother tongue.

0:31:270:31:31

-I'm Chinese, and when I was young...

0:31:340:31:38

-..I went to a Chinese school.

0:31:380:31:41

-It was a Mandarin medium school.

0:31:420:31:46

-I speak Mandarin

-and Indonesian fluently.

0:31:460:31:51

-I also learnt English at school.

0:31:530:31:56

-In which language do you think?

0:31:570:32:00

-How does that look?

0:32:050:32:06

-To me, it looks perfect.

0:32:060:32:08

-To me, it looks perfect.

-

-Very good.

0:32:080:32:09

-Shall we water them?

0:32:150:32:17

-Shall we water them?

-

-Yes, let's water them.

0:32:170:32:19

-Dyfrio.

0:32:190:32:20

-She's a lovely person.

0:32:250:32:27

-Fair play to her

-for learning the language.

0:32:270:32:30

-She has very few links with Welsh.

0:32:310:32:35

-Personally, I have family ties

-with the Welsh language...

0:32:350:32:40

-..so it was natural for me

-to learn the language...

0:32:400:32:44

-..when I was young.

0:32:440:32:46

-It's wonderful and she speaks

-very good Welsh, fair play to her.

-Back in the house, the children have

-heard that Esther is good at art.

0:32:580:33:03

-Did you see any penguins

-in Patagonia?

0:33:080:33:11

-Yes.

0:33:110:33:12

-Did you see lots of them?

0:33:120:33:14

-Miriam, did you see any penguins?

0:33:170:33:20

-Do you like penguins?

0:33:220:33:23

-Yes.

0:33:240:33:25

-What are you drawing?

0:33:290:33:31

-I'm trying to draw a whale.

0:33:310:33:34

-What do you think?

0:33:370:33:38

-A mess?

0:33:390:33:41

-Is that a whale?

0:33:470:33:49

-It's good.

0:33:490:33:51

-It's good.

-

-Thank you. You're very kind.

0:33:510:33:53

-Esther, would you like

-to come and try some mate?

0:33:560:34:00

-Thank you, but I don't understand.

0:34:000:34:02

-Can you say it again?

0:34:020:34:04

-Mate.

0:34:040:34:06

-Mate.

-

-What's mate?

0:34:060:34:07

-A traditional drink in Patagonia.

0:34:070:34:10

-Yes, I'd be delighted.

0:34:110:34:13

-Thank you.

0:34:130:34:15

-This is yerba.

0:34:190:34:21

-Yerba?

0:34:210:34:23

-Yerba?

-

-Yes.

0:34:230:34:24

-It smells like tea.

0:34:250:34:28

-It's some sort of green tea.

0:34:280:34:31

-In the same way we drink tea here...

0:34:310:34:35

-..they drink mate in Argentina.

0:34:350:34:39

-When you visit someone...

0:34:390:34:41

-..they immediately offer you

-a tot of mate.

0:34:410:34:44

-Mate can be a bit bitter...

0:34:440:34:47

-..so we sweeten it with a little bit

-of sugar and a touch of honey.

0:34:480:34:53

-We use three-quarters of a cup

-of yerba.

0:34:530:34:58

-This straw is known as a bombija.

0:35:010:35:04

-You suck water through this straw.

0:35:070:35:10

-This goes in the bottom

-and it won't move.

0:35:120:35:15

-We then add a little bit of water.

-Not too much.

0:35:160:35:19

-It's a social drink.

0:35:260:35:30

-We pass it from person to person.

0:35:310:35:33

-How was it?

0:35:370:35:38

-Different!

0:35:400:35:41

-Mate is incredible.

0:35:440:35:47

-I'd never heard about it before.

0:35:470:35:51

-I'm learning new things,

-not just about the Welsh language...

0:35:520:35:58

-..but also

-about Argentine traditions.

0:35:590:36:04

-It's wonderful

-to learn something new every day.

-Welcome back

-to Dyffryn Croes, Alltwalis.

0:36:240:36:28

-The Lewis family

-is ready for another fun day.

0:36:280:36:32

-Good morning.

0:36:340:36:36

-Good morning.

-

-Good morning. Come in.

0:36:360:36:37

-How are you today?

0:36:380:36:39

-How are you today?

-

-Very well, thank you.

0:36:390:36:40

-You finished the chest of drawers.

0:36:410:36:44

-Wow! It's really pretty.

0:36:440:36:46

-It's changed a bit since yesterday!

0:36:460:36:49

-Here's a little something from me

-to thank you for your help.

0:36:490:36:54

-That's great.

0:36:550:36:57

-Thank you very much.

0:36:570:36:59

-Thank you very much.

-

-Thanks for your help yesterday.

0:36:590:37:01

-To loosen the limbs...

0:37:060:37:08

-..Tito will show Esther

-a traditional Patagonian dance.

0:37:090:37:13

-You'll need to be

-a really good teacher to teach me...

0:37:420:37:47

-..because I'm hopeless.

0:37:470:37:50

-I'll teach you something easy.

0:37:510:37:53

-Very good. Try it with the hat now.

0:38:030:38:06

-I'll just enjoy myself!

0:38:090:38:11

-It's good exercise.

0:38:130:38:15

-With the music.

0:38:220:38:23

-You must follow the music.

0:38:230:38:25

-And turn.

0:38:330:38:35

-Very good.

0:38:510:38:52

-Thank you.

0:38:520:38:54

-I'm hungry after all that dancing.

0:38:570:39:00

-Let's have lunch.

0:39:000:39:02

-Good idea.

0:39:020:39:04

-I'll show you

-how to cook an Indonesian curry.

0:39:040:39:08

-Wow!

0:39:090:39:10

-A chicken curry.

0:39:110:39:13

-A chicken curry.

-

-I love curry.

0:39:130:39:15

-What do we have here?

0:39:190:39:20

-Curry, vegetables and rice.

0:39:210:39:25

-We'll start with the curry...

0:39:270:39:31

-..because it takes longer to cook.

0:39:310:39:35

-We're using chicken, are we?

0:39:350:39:37

-We're using chicken, are we?

-

-Yes.

0:39:370:39:38

-Galangal is one of the most

-important ingredients of the curry.

0:39:450:39:51

-What is it?

0:39:510:39:53

-There's no Welsh word for galangal.

0:39:530:39:56

-How does it smell?

0:39:560:39:57

-It smells slightly sweet.

0:39:590:40:01

-Is it similar to ginger?

0:40:040:40:06

-Yes. It's a root of a plant,

-like ginger.

0:40:070:40:10

-We'll also use some of these leaves.

0:40:120:40:17

-They're from the lemon family.

0:40:170:40:21

-May I smell them?

0:40:210:40:23

-Yes, I'm getting that citrus smell.

0:40:250:40:29

-It's not the same as Thai bay leaves

-or Thai basil.

0:40:290:40:34

-These look similar

-but they smell different.

0:40:350:40:38

-We can now add the chicken.

0:40:410:40:45

-One other ingredient is turmeric.

0:40:500:40:54

-What does turmeric give you?

0:40:560:40:59

-Turmeric smells really special.

0:41:000:41:05

-Of course, in Indonesia,

-we use fresh turmeric.

0:41:060:41:10

-What's next?

0:41:130:41:15

-What's next?

-

-Lemongrass.

0:41:150:41:17

-I nearly forgot.

0:41:170:41:20

-Do you chop the lemongrass?

0:41:210:41:23

-No, I'll just slice it in half...

0:41:250:41:28

-..just to release the flavour.

0:41:280:41:32

-That looks lovely. Wow!

0:41:350:41:37

-Things like this are never cooked

-in this kitchen, unfortunately.

0:41:400:41:44

-It's time to add the coconut milk.

0:41:450:41:49

-Three spoonfuls.

0:41:510:41:53

-It looks really tasty.

0:42:000:42:02

-The smell of lemongrass is great.

0:42:040:42:07

-I really like the sauce.

0:42:080:42:09

-It's incredible that one ingredient

-can add so much flavour.

0:42:100:42:16

-We never use it.

0:42:160:42:18

-It's too easy to open a jar

-and pour on a sauce.

0:42:180:42:23

-I'll never do that again.

0:42:230:42:25

-How often do you cook this dish?

0:42:250:42:28

-How often do you cook this dish?

-

-It depends.

0:42:280:42:30

-If we have guests, I cook a curry.

0:42:300:42:34

-I cook it on special occasions.

0:42:350:42:37

-You can come again.

0:42:400:42:41

-Thank you very much.

0:42:430:42:45

-You've made me think differently.

0:42:450:42:47

-I'm not particularly fond

-of cooking.

0:42:480:42:51

-Really?

0:42:520:42:53

-I don't know how to get food

-to taste the way it should.

0:42:540:42:58

-I don't know what to use

-to add flavour.

0:42:580:43:01

-Seeing what you added to this...

0:43:020:43:05

-Wow!

0:43:050:43:06

-I think that people in Asia...

0:43:060:43:10

-..use a lot of spices...

0:43:100:43:13

-..purely because

-they grow in the garden.

0:43:130:43:16

-I suppose it's easy to grow them

-in gardens in Indonesia.

0:43:170:43:21

-This is really tasty.

0:43:220:43:23

-More rice, Miriam?

0:43:280:43:30

-More rice?

0:43:300:43:31

-Do you have

-any favourite Welsh dishes?

0:43:340:43:37

-Yes.

0:43:390:43:41

-I'm really fond of fish and chips

-and I love cawl too.

0:43:450:43:50

-I think we need to get some exercise

-after this lovely food.

0:43:580:44:03

-What do you think?

0:44:030:44:05

-Let's go to the beach at Penbryn.

0:44:050:44:07

-Let's go to the beach at Penbryn.

-

-Yes!

0:44:070:44:09

-We can play football...

0:44:100:44:12

-..and cricket.

0:44:130:44:14

-Do you like football

-and cricket, Esther?

0:44:150:44:18

-I'll like them

-if Ifan teaches me how to play.

0:44:190:44:24

-Mmm! Alright?

0:44:250:44:27

-Carry the bat!

0:44:460:44:47

-What are you building there, Miriam?

0:45:030:45:04

-What are you building there, Miriam?

-

-A sandcastle.

0:45:040:45:06

-May I help you?

0:45:070:45:08

-Where do you want me to put this?

0:45:120:45:14

-Well, look!

0:45:170:45:18

-Yay!

0:45:240:45:25

-Yay!

-

-Are you happy?

0:45:250:45:27

-in this area?

0:45:310:45:34

-Yes, very much so.

0:45:340:45:36

0:45:360:45:38

-to practise speaking Welsh.

0:46:020:46:04

0:46:040:46:10

-I have a surprise for you two.

0:46:170:46:20

-Do you like surprises?

0:46:210:46:24

-What could it be?

0:46:280:46:30

-First, for Miriam.

0:46:310:46:33

-You can keep your rings in there.

0:46:380:46:43

-Let me see.

0:46:460:46:47

-This is for you.

-keep your money in it.

0:46:500:46:53

-Say thank you very much.

0:46:560:46:58

-Thank you very much.

0:46:580:47:00

-Thank you very much.

-

-You're welcome.

-It was great to have Esther here.

0:47:070:47:10

-I think she enjoyed our company too.

0:47:100:47:13

-I think she enjoyed our company too.

-

-Yes, we really enjoyed it.

0:47:130:47:15

-It's been

-quite a new experience for us too.

0:47:150:47:19

-We really enjoyed it...

0:47:190:47:21

-..and we learnt a lot from her.

0:47:210:47:23

-She's very affable

-and a really nice person.

0:47:240:47:28

-We did everything

-through the medium of Welsh.
