0:01:210:01:25

0:01:250:01:29

-Is that it?

0:01:360:01:39

-Our cameras have been to another

-beautiful Welsh spot, Skomer Island.

0:01:390:01:45

-I'm visiting Skomer Island

-off the coast of Pembrokeshire...

0:01:460:01:51

-..to learn why the population

-of puffins is at its highest.

0:01:520:01:55

-I know that Gerallt would

-love to be on Skomer Island...

0:01:560:01:59

-..but he's in Pwllheli for us

-this evening.

0:01:590:02:09

-I've been to Skomer many times.

0:02:090:02:13

-It's been windy and

-rainy here in Pwllheli.

0:02:160:02:22

-Earlier today, I visited

-the Maes of the National Eisteddfod.

0:02:250:02:30

-In Pwllheli,

-they've welcomed home a hero.

0:02:340:02:40

-Huw Williams took part

-in the marathon in the Sahara.

0:02:400:02:44

-We start tonight by welcoming Llyr

-from Aberystwyth...

0:02:440:02:48

-..and Llyr's father, Huw Jones.

0:02:480:02:50

-Llyr appeared

-in yesterday's Sunday Times...

0:02:500:02:53

-..and starred in a programme called

-Sweet Sixteen: A Transgender Story.

0:02:540:03:01

-Welcome to the studio, Llyr and Huw.

0:03:010:03:03

-Welcome to the studio, Llyr and Huw.

-

-Thank you.

0:03:030:03:05

-Llyr,

-you're a transgender young woman.

0:03:060:03:08

-The recent article and programme...

0:03:080:03:10

-..tell your family's story

-during a time of great transition.

0:03:110:03:14

-Before our chat, here's a clip

-from the programme.

0:03:140:03:17

-It's 16 years since Llyr was born.

0:03:170:03:20

-Time has flown, hasn't it.

0:03:200:03:23

-I remember that night he was born,

-it was quite an emotional time.

0:03:240:03:29

-I'm quite proud of Llyr.

0:03:290:03:32

-I'm proud of his determination...

0:03:320:03:36

-..and his courage

-in doing what he has done.

0:03:360:03:40

-It's not really

-the norm around here.

0:03:400:03:43

-It's a very rural place.

0:03:440:03:46

-You look out of the window

-and it's just fields and mountains.

0:03:460:03:50

-It's lovely in that sense,

-but there isn't much diversity.

0:03:510:03:56

-I've had such good positive feedback

-and that's such a nice thing.

0:03:560:04:02

-The film is currently available

-on the BBC iPlayer website.

0:04:030:04:07

-You've received a fantastic response

-after appearing in the programme.

0:04:080:04:13

-The reaction has been incredible.

0:04:160:04:20

-The reaction has been incredible.

0:04:210:04:25

-I didn't think that it

-would be such a big deal.

0:04:250:04:40

-You've had a great response

-on social media.

0:04:400:04:43

-I've spoken to lots of different

-people about the programme.

0:04:430:04:47

-They've given me

-some amazing feedback.

0:04:470:04:53

-How difficult was it to leave

-the cameras in to your home?

0:04:580:05:02

-It was quite difficult to let

-the cameras into our lives.

0:05:030:05:08

-We had to consider it carefully.

0:05:080:05:13

-We didn't know if it was something

-that we wanted to do it.

0:05:140:05:20

-However, it's through a television

-programme...

0:05:200:05:24

-..that I discovered

-who I really was.

0:05:240:05:29

-You've been very supportive.

0:05:320:05:36

-I hope that I've helped others

-with the programme.

0:05:360:05:40

-It was a difficult decision for Llyr

-and the whole family.

0:05:420:05:48

-However, I'm proud

-of how open Llyr has been.

0:05:490:05:54

-It's not easy to talk about it.

0:05:540:05:58

-I realised that I was born in the

-wrong body when I was around ten.

0:06:130:06:18

-I did some research online

-and watched programmes online.

0:06:200:06:26

-It was the first time

-that I decided to look into it.

0:06:300:06:34

-Who was the first person you told?

0:06:340:06:38

-I first told my mother

-about how I felt.

0:06:390:06:45

-I've always been close to my mother.

0:06:460:06:49

-I told my father afterwards.

0:06:490:06:52

-Do you remember that moment?

0:06:530:06:56

-I was shocked.

0:06:560:06:59

-I had lots of questions for Llyr.

0:07:020:07:05

-I wanted to know

-how it would affect Llyr's future.

0:07:050:07:11

-School is probably one of the

-hardest places for young people.

0:07:200:07:25

-I had a difficult time at school.

0:07:250:07:30

-However, I've been lucky to have

-good friends at school.

0:07:320:07:37

-We're very close

-and we've stayed close together.

0:07:410:07:44

-You live outside Aberystwyth.

0:07:450:07:49

-Have the locals been supportive?

0:07:540:07:59

-We've had a positive response.

0:07:590:08:04

-I've been pleasantly surprised

-by the reaction of others.

0:08:090:08:15

-They've told me that I've been

-very brave about Llyr's decisions.

0:08:190:08:25

-Not too many years ago,

-people in Llyr's situation...

0:08:340:08:39

-..would be locked up.

0:08:390:08:42

-It was completely wrong.

0:08:440:08:48

-They were made to feel like outlaws.

0:08:490:08:55

-However, the community

-has accepted Llyr unreservedly.

0:08:570:09:01

-You've started the treatment.

0:09:010:09:04

-What is the next step?

0:09:070:09:10

-I'm on testosterone blockers.

0:09:110:09:15

-In a year, I'll receive oestrogen.

0:09:160:09:19

-The treatment is making me so happy.

0:09:200:09:23

-You're an inspiration, Llyr.

0:09:240:09:28

-Thank you Llyr and Huw.

0:09:280:09:30

-Thanks for sharing your story

-and your experiences.

0:09:300:09:34

-We always admire those who are keen

-to share their story to help others.

0:09:350:09:39

-If you would like more information

-or advice, there's help available.

0:09:390:09:45

-You should talk to friends

-and family.

0:09:450:09:50

-There are people who will listen.

0:09:510:09:54

-You can research online

-and visit your GP.

0:10:000:10:03

-Don't be scared.

0:10:030:10:05

-After the break, we'll be urged

-to eat a big breakfast...

-Welcome back.

0:10:230:10:25

-It's 7.15pm but Tom Defis from

-Christian Aid is eating breakfast!

0:10:260:10:30

-Welcome to the studio, Tom.

0:10:300:10:33

-Thank you.

0:10:330:10:36

-This is all part of Christian Aid's

-special campaign.

0:10:360:10:40

-This week, it's more important

-than ever as you're celebrating.

0:10:400:10:46

-It's Christian Aid Week.

0:10:460:10:49

-We're marking 60 years

-of Christian Aid too.

0:10:580:11:04

-However, it does date back 62 years.

0:11:040:11:10

-There are three areas in the West...

0:11:110:11:16

-..who've contributed for 60 years.

0:11:180:11:21

-However, nearly every area in the UK

-now contributes to Christian Aid.

0:11:370:11:43

-It has been difficult to raise

-the funds over the years.

0:11:430:11:47

-We're trying out new ideas

-to raise funds...

0:11:470:11:51

-..and that's why we've got this

-breakfast idea.

0:11:510:11:56

-Take us back over the years.

0:12:000:12:04

-We first started to help refugees.

0:12:040:12:08

-It's a shame that

-it's still an issue 60 years later.

0:12:090:12:13

-However, our work has changed

-and evolved.

0:12:140:12:18

-We host projects and help

-communities become self-sufficient.

0:12:230:12:28

-We'd like that communities

-wouldn't need our help.

0:12:480:12:53

-There are 60 million refugees

-in the world.

0:12:550:13:00

-They're not just in Syria,

-they're all over the world.

0:13:030:13:07

-We've done some great work

-in Columbia.

0:13:070:13:16

-Lots of people left their home

-due to the war.

0:13:160:13:22

-We've recently achieved peace

-in the area.

0:13:330:13:37

-There will be less refugees

-as a result.

0:13:370:13:42

-How will the breakfast help?

0:13:420:13:47

-The big breakfast scheme is held

-to raise money for Christian Aid.

0:13:480:13:53

-We'd like people to get together

-and host coffee mornings.

0:13:560:14:01

-There's one in Ammanford

-that will be held at 7.30am.

0:14:050:14:09

-We're being very continental here.

0:14:130:14:16

-The one in Carmarthen starts

-at 8.00am on Priory Street.

0:14:220:14:27

-It's on Wednesday.

0:14:270:14:29

-You should pop in, Mari.

0:14:310:14:34

-It's a great way to socialise.

0:14:350:14:37

-Breakfast is the most important meal

-of the day!

0:14:380:14:42

-Thank you, Tom.

0:14:420:14:43

-at the National Eisteddfod.

0:19:240:19:28

-I would compete at the Urdd and

-National Eisteddfod.

0:19:280:19:40

-However, I wasn't very successful

0:19:590:20:02

-Yes, I'm representing Wales.

0:20:030:20:05

-I have to look after myself and

-my voice ahead of the contest.

0:20:200:20:24

-I have to visit lots of specialists

-to perfect my singing.

0:20:250:20:29

-It can be difficult as a performer.

0:20:300:20:33

-However, I'm sure you have

-a wonderful dress to wear.

0:20:380:20:43

-I will be wearing

-lots of beautiful gowns.

0:20:430:20:47

-I've tried every dress in Britain!

0:20:470:20:50

-I have to make sure there aren't any

-straps that will fall down.

0:20:500:20:56

-I spotted my favourite dress

-in Deganwy.

0:20:570:21:02

-That's the first impression.

0:21:070:21:11

-It was love at first sight.

0:21:110:21:14

-when I step on stage.

0:21:150:21:19

-How will you prepare?

0:21:230:21:25

-at least three times.

0:21:570:22:02

0:22:020:22:05

-Yes, I've moved to Glasgow.

0:22:060:22:09

-When I return there,

0:22:090:22:14

-I've worked lots in the area.

0:22:150:22:17

-I'm going to work with the opera

-company in Glasgow.

0:22:210:22:26

-Welcome back to Monday's Heno

-and to Pwllheli.

0:25:090:25:15

-I promised you a story.

0:25:170:25:20

-This is Huw Williams.

0:25:240:25:26

-He's recently completed the Marathon

-des Sables.

0:25:330:25:38

-Why did you decide to take part in

-the marathon?

0:25:460:25:51

-I decided to try

-the Marathon des Sables...

0:25:510:25:55

-..after seeing it on the television.

0:25:550:25:59

-My wife was away with work...

0:26:000:26:02

-..and I saw Chris Coleman

-making a claim about having dreams.

0:26:020:26:12

-I put my name down

-for the 2018 race.

0:26:120:26:15

-However, someone pulled out

-and I was offered a place for 2017.

0:26:160:26:20

-You were raising funds for Scope.

0:26:200:26:23

-How many marathons are included

-in the Marathon des Sables?

0:26:280:26:33

-There are five marathons.

0:26:330:26:36

-On one day,

-there's a double marathon.

0:26:370:26:40

-It took me to run 21 hours to run

-the double marathon.

0:26:400:26:45

-The temperature was over

-50 degrees Celsius.

0:26:460:26:51

-I don't know why I decided to do it!

0:26:520:26:55

-I was questioning myself

-when I set off on the marathon.

0:27:040:27:10

-However,

-I finished and got my medal.

0:27:110:27:14

-You have a medal as proof.

0:27:150:27:18

-I display it on my wall at home.

0:27:180:27:23

-The Marathon des Sables is something

-amazing to complete.

0:27:230:27:29

-We had a tent full of Welsh runners

-and the atmosphere was great.

0:27:340:27:38

-How many sand dunes were there?

0:27:390:27:42

-The sand dunes were massive.

0:27:420:27:47

-They were the same size as Tryfan.

0:27:470:27:51

-We just kept climbing.

0:27:510:27:54

-People suffered from vertigo

-due to the heights.

0:28:030:28:07

-These are some of the items

-that you had with you.

0:28:070:28:10

-This is my kit.

0:28:100:28:13

-This is what kept me alive.

0:28:140:28:17

-The bag contained my home,

-food, my life during the race.

0:28:180:28:23

-I'm a size 13 shoe.

0:28:230:28:25

-Carys and the children

-are behind us.

0:28:420:28:45

-How did Carys and

-the children feel about it?

0:28:450:28:49

-Carys was the most supportive wife

-ever!

0:28:490:28:54

-When the Six Nations were on,

-I was in full training mode.

0:28:540:29:07

-You've set yourself other goals.

0:29:070:29:11

-I'm going to train

-for my next marathon.

0:29:110:29:14

-I want to do the Pilgrims Way.

0:29:140:29:17

-It's a new ultra marathon

-for next year.

0:29:180:29:22

-Huw will host an evening

-to talk about his trip soon.

0:29:320:29:37

-There's a special event at Plas Heli

-to celebrate my return.

0:29:370:29:43

-On Saturday, there's also a sailing

-event.

0:29:430:29:46

-Thank you, Gerallt, and good luck

-to Huw with the next race.

0:29:460:29:49

-Next, we turn our attention to

-nature and the famous Skomer Island.

0:29:490:29:54

-The island draws visitors from

-around the world this time of year.

0:29:540:29:59

-Rhodri Gomer has been to find out

-why the visitors head to the island.

0:29:590:30:05

-Skomer Island is a ten-minute boat

-trip off the coast of Pembrokeshire.

0:30:130:30:18

-It's a haven for wildlife,

-the most famous being the puffin.

0:30:180:30:23

-The population of this sea bid

-is monitored annually.

0:30:320:30:36

-They thrive on the island

-unlike in other parts of the world.

0:30:370:30:41

-I've come to meet someone who knows

-all about the island and the birds.

0:30:410:30:47

-Hello, Nia. How are you?

0:30:480:30:49

-Hello, Nia. How are you?

-

-Hello, I'm fine.

0:30:490:30:53

-Thank you for meeting me today

-so tell me what it is you do.

0:30:530:30:57

-I work for the Wildlife Trust

-of South and West Wales.

0:30:580:31:01

-We're a conservation charity

-and protect Skomer Island.

0:31:020:31:05

-You know the island better than

-anyone so can you show me around?

0:31:050:31:10

-Yes, let's go.

0:31:100:31:12

-Some 25,000 have been recorded this

-year on the one-mile-squared island.

0:31:120:31:17

-It's the best time to visit and get

-up close to these beautiful birds.

0:31:180:31:23

-They are incredible

-and so beautiful.

0:31:260:31:30

-Yes, they're lovely.

0:31:300:31:31

-What makes the island

-so perfect for the puffin?

0:31:320:31:35

-It's the lack of predators

-so we don't have any rats or foxes.

0:31:350:31:41

-They nest in underground holes.

0:31:420:31:45

-Any rats would eat the eggs and

-chicks so it's a safe place to live.

0:31:460:31:51

-The population is dwindling

-in a lot of parts in Britain...

0:31:530:31:56

-..but they are thriving

-on Skomer Island.

0:31:570:32:00

-Our research will show why they

-thrive here and not in Scotland.

0:32:010:32:05

-What do they eat?

0:32:050:32:07

-What do they eat?

-

-The eat small fish called sand eels.

0:32:070:32:10

-They prefer to be on the sea

-than on land.

0:32:100:32:13

-They would spend all year

-on the sea if they could...

0:32:140:32:17

-..but need to return to land for a

-few months in the summer to breed.

0:32:170:32:22

-They spend the winter on the sea.

0:32:230:32:26

-Are the puffins responsible for

-digging all the holes on the island?

0:32:270:32:32

-Yes, the puffins can dig their

-own holes but we also have rabbits.

0:32:320:32:38

-Most of holes are the work

-of the Manx shearwater.

0:32:380:32:43

-There's over 300,000 pairs

-of these birds on this island.

0:32:450:32:50

-Half of the world's population

-of these birds are on Skomer Island.

0:32:510:32:55

-We won't see any today

-as they only return in the dark.

0:32:560:33:00

-You will see them return

-if you stay overnight...

0:33:010:33:06

-..in the accommodation

-that's run by the wildlife trust.

0:33:060:33:11

-Skomer Island isn't just home to the

-puffin and the Manx shearwater...

0:33:160:33:21

-..as you can see all sorts

-of wildlife on the island.

0:33:210:33:26

-We've seen the porpoise, gannets,

-rabbits and all sorts of sea birds.

0:33:270:33:33

-The flowers are in bloom

-and they look very beautiful.

0:33:350:33:40

-In late August and into September,

-we have all the seals.

0:33:410:33:46

-They come to the island to breed

-and it's very special to witness.

0:33:460:33:52

-I've certainly had tougher days at

-work and today has been incredible.

0:33:520:33:58

-It looked like paradise.

0:34:220:34:25

-Have any of you been to the island?

0:34:340:34:38

-I've been to Skomer.

0:34:380:34:41

-I went on a school trip.

0:34:410:34:45

-It was incredible.

0:34:450:34:47

-I can remember the noise

-of the birds.

0:34:490:34:54

-We had to stick to the paths

-as there were so many holes.

0:34:560:35:02

-You could easily trip

-and break your leg.

0:35:100:35:12

-After the break, we see

-more of Wales' breathtaking views...

0:35:120:35:16

-..through the camera lens of

-a new Hollywood film, King Arthur...

0:35:160:35:20

-..starring David Beckham.

0:35:200:35:22

-Where do you want me?

0:35:220:35:23

-Where do you want me?

-

-Bouncing on my knee.

0:35:230:35:23

-Bouncing on my knee.

0:35:230:35:24

-Where do you think I want you?

-Hands on the hilt, stupid!

0:35:250:35:28

-We'll also have a wonderful

-performance by Sioned Gwen.

0:35:320:35:37

-See you in a few minutes.

-Welcome back.

0:36:000:36:02

-The story of King Arthur is

-an integral part to Welsh culture.

0:36:020:36:07

-Any film about the subject

-is sure to cause interest.

0:36:070:36:12

-King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

-arrives in our cinemas this week...

0:36:120:36:16

-..and it was shot in various

-locations around Snowdonia.

0:36:160:36:22

-Does it reflect the Welsh legend and

-is there any truth in the story?

0:36:220:36:27

-Rhodri has all the answers.

0:36:270:36:29

-Why does the sword

-reveal itself now?

0:36:290:36:33

-It's directed by Guy Ritchie and

-stars Jude Law and Charles Hunnan.

0:36:330:36:37

-The character has been the subject

-of thousands of books and films...

0:36:380:36:43

-..so what could possibly go wrong?

0:36:440:36:47

-He found it.

0:36:470:36:50

-You know what to expect

-from a film by Guy Ritchie...

0:36:510:36:55

-..and I don't think King Arthur

-was ever a Cockney gangster!

0:36:560:37:00

-I don't know how true it is

-to the story of Arthur.

0:37:000:37:04

-I know it features Excalibur

-but there's no sign of Merlin.

0:37:040:37:08

-They are also playing on the fact

-that the film stars David Beckham.

0:37:080:37:12

-If you're not a fan of Beckham,

-what about the scenery?

0:37:130:37:17

-Does Nant Gwynant, Padarn Lake

-and Capel Curig give Wales a stage?

0:37:170:37:23

-In recent years, Wales has offered

-great locations for blockbusters.

0:37:230:37:29

-I suspect the locations are lost

-in Ritchie's cinematography.

0:37:290:37:34

-It's a shame because nobody has made

-the perfect Welsh film about Arthur.

0:37:340:37:40

-But who is the ideal Welsh Arthur

-and was there a Welsh Arthur?

0:37:440:37:49

-It's thanks to Geoffrey of Monmouth

-that we have the tales of Arthur...

0:37:510:37:56

-..his links with Merlin,

-the Round Table and his knights.

0:37:570:38:01

-There are references to Arthur in

-The Gododdin from the sixth century.

0:38:010:38:07

-We know that the attacks

-of the Anglo-Saxons...

0:38:100:38:15

-..were hampered for about 50 years

-in the fifth century.

0:38:150:38:20

-Someone was responsible

-for hampering those attacks.

0:38:210:38:26

-Nennius refers to a battle

-that Arthur won but was injured.

0:38:260:38:31

-..but nobody knows the location

-of the Battle of Badon.

0:38:360:38:40

-People have searched for it

-for centuries.

0:38:400:38:45

-You're going to miss me.

0:38:460:38:47

-Can we claim Arthur as our own?

0:38:470:38:51

-From Edinburgh

-to Carmarthen to Cornwall...

0:38:510:38:54

-..everywhere has an Arthurian story.

0:38:540:38:57

-As Geoffrey of Monmouth penned

-all this romance about Arthur...

0:38:580:39:02

-..the most probable place to locate

-Arthur was in Caerleon.

0:39:030:39:06

-Everyone linked Caerleon with this

-mythical image of Arthur and Avalon.

0:39:060:39:11

-Wales have benefitted

-from this association on film.

0:39:120:39:16

-Ioan Gruffudd played Lancelot

-in the film, King Arthur.

0:39:160:39:20

-Sean Connery and Richard Gere filmed

-First Knight in Trawsfynydd.

0:39:210:39:25

-Sword of the Valiant: The Legend of

-Sir Gawain and the Green Knight...

0:39:250:39:30

-..was shot in Castell Coch, Cardiff

-Castle and Caerphilly Castle.

0:39:300:39:34

-In 1953, you have Hollywood film,

-Knights of the Round Table...

0:39:350:39:38

-..where Wales's Stanley Baker

-played Modred.

0:39:380:39:43

-We remember him more than

-Robert Taylor who played the hero!

0:39:430:39:49

-Stanley Baker was brilliant

-and gave an outstanding performance.

0:39:500:39:54

-There's a lot of films about Arthur

-but only one truly stands out.

0:39:550:39:59

-It's Monty Python

-and the Holy Grail...

0:40:000:40:01

-..directed by Terry Jones

-from Colwyn Bay!

0:40:010:40:05

-Find him!

0:40:050:40:08

-This film could be a pack of lies...

0:40:080:40:11

-..but it highlights the old

-Welsh tradition of Arthur...

0:40:110:40:16

-..and the Celtic nation that existed

-before the Anglo-Saxon invasion.

0:40:160:40:22

-There's too much emphasis on the

-English as opposed to the Britons...

0:40:240:40:29

-..who spoke a language

-that preceded our own.

0:40:300:40:34

-We've inherited stories about Arthur

-that form part of our heritage.

0:40:340:40:38

-They were spread across Europe

-but are more relevant to Wales.

0:40:390:40:44

-Anything that highlights Welsh

-history has to be a good thing.

0:40:440:40:49

-This is your proxy - the man

-who pulled sword from stone.

0:40:500:40:54

-Behold your born king!

0:40:550:40:57

-It looks like a good film.

0:41:110:41:14

-Llyr Jones, Huw Jones and Tom Dafis

-have been our guests.

0:41:140:41:20

-Welsh history should be told.

0:41:280:41:34

-Yes, I agree.

0:41:340:41:38

-How can people donate?

0:41:420:41:44

-There will be people doing

-door-to-door collections.

0:41:530:41:58

-You can also donate by doing a

-fundraising breakfast.

-We want to make a difference.

-is available on BBC iPlayer.

0:42:160:42:21

-Why did you keep your name?

0:42:240:42:26

-Why can't I keep the name Llyr?

0:42:340:42:37

-It can be difficult.

0:42:480:42:50

-Llyr is the same person.

0:42:550:42:57

-I enjoyed seeing the party scene in

-the programme.

0:43:140:43:20

-My friends hadn't seen me in a dress

-before.

0:43:230:43:27

-I was nervous, but I was with my

0:44:050:44:08

-blithesome and cumberless

0:44:230:44:28

-# Emblem of happiness

0:44:340:44:37

-# Blest is thy dwelling place

0:44:370:44:40

0:44:500:44:52

-# Love gives it energy,

-love gave it birth

0:44:530:44:59
