0:01:580:02:07

-I've enjoyed singing and

-Let's go back to the 1960s.

0:02:560:03:01

-You used to sing with a band.

0:03:010:03:06

-I sung solo and with Bara Menyn

-many moons ago.

0:03:060:03:14

-I sang with Meic Stephens too.

0:03:140:03:19

-Bara Menyn was a professional group.

-We made records.

0:03:190:03:28

-The group only lasted a year.

0:03:290:03:33

-We were quite different.

0:03:340:03:43

-This was due to Meic's influence.

0:03:430:03:55

-He told me to wear

-my hair differently!

0:03:560:03:59

-You were also a fashion icon

-at the time.

0:03:590:04:05

-Meic came from London and

-had been to Manchester.

0:04:060:04:13

-He pushed our boundaries.

0:04:130:04:20

-We've got a few of your singles.

0:04:200:04:28

-These records are worth

-a fortune now.

0:04:280:04:37

-# Losing the language

0:04:370:04:42

-# And losing dignity

0:04:430:04:45

-# Losing inspiration

0:04:450:04:47

-# Losing poetry

0:04:480:04:53

-# Losing the crown of a community

0:04:530:04:58

-# Replacing it

-with a slang-ridden patois

0:04:590:05:08

-# Losing the old melodious tunes

0:05:080:05:15

-# Losing the resounding choirs

0:05:150:05:23

-# Losing the delicate strings

-of the harp

0:05:240:05:29

-# Replacing it with

-meaningless gabble #

0:05:290:05:37

-That was wonderful.

0:05:370:05:46

-That's an anthem.

0:05:460:05:53

-You look emotional.

0:05:530:05:59

-Yes, I feel emotional watching that!

0:06:000:06:09

-No Welsh was spoken in my home.

0:06:090:06:12

-Do you remember seeing the lyrics

-for the first time?

0:06:130:06:19

-Ray Smith sent it to me.

0:06:230:06:26

-It was an unaccompanied piece.

0:06:270:06:38

-Geraint told me the tune

-would sound great.

0:06:390:06:42

-It worked perfectly and has lasted.

0:06:420:06:45

-The old county of Dyfed has produced

-many long-distance runners...

0:06:450:06:49

-..such as Dewi Griffiths,

-Caryl Jones and Josh Griffiths.

0:06:500:06:53

-Yesterday, hundreds of children

-faced challenging conditions...

0:06:530:06:59

-..at the Dyfed Schools Cross Country

-Championships in Dinefwr Park.

0:06:590:07:04

-Rhodri Gomer was there too!

0:07:070:07:13

-Many of the world's best

-long-distance runners...

0:07:130:07:18

-..honed their skill on cross country

-courses like this at Dinefwr Park.

0:07:190:07:24

-You need a specific talent

-to overcome these conditions!

0:07:270:07:34

-We didn't expect last night's rain

-as it was dry yesterday...

0:07:380:07:42

-..but this is cross country and

-everyone seems to have enjoyed it.

0:07:430:07:50

-How tough it was out there?

0:07:500:07:53

-It was really tough because

-of the mud and rain of recent days.

0:07:530:07:59

-It was horrible and not nice at all!

0:07:590:08:03

-The mud was splashing all over you

-and it wasn't very nice at all.

0:08:030:08:10

-Why do you enjoy

-cross country events?

0:08:100:08:14

-I love the feeling of achievement

-you get at crossing the finish line.

0:08:140:08:21

-Why are you so nasty

-to these children?

0:08:210:08:25

-That's one way of looking at it.

0:08:260:08:28

-Today's conditions are tough

-as the mud is up to their knees.

0:08:280:08:33

-It also tests them

-and the girls enjoy it too.

0:08:330:08:37

-Yesterday saw seven races for the

-secondary school runners in Dyfed.

0:08:380:08:43

-Each had their own reason

-for taking part.

0:08:430:08:47

-I like the competition

-because I'm quite competitive...

0:08:470:08:51

-..and the mud can be quite fun too!

0:08:520:08:55

-I do a cross country event every

-month to stay fit over the winter.

0:08:550:09:02

-I like track racing in the summer

-but this is difficult.

0:09:020:09:06

-I'm a triathlete so this provides me

-with training for my summer season.

0:09:060:09:12

-Dewi Griffiths and Caryl Jones

-have done this event.

0:09:130:09:16

-Dewi won the Welsh Championships

-five times but he started here.

0:09:160:09:21

-The course was muddy and slippery

-but I'm happy with my win.

0:09:230:09:30

-They struggle at first

-but it's a challenge.

0:09:300:09:36

-They can look back on it with pride.

0:09:360:09:39

-Congratulations to everyone

-who took part in that heavy rain.

0:09:470:09:54

-I hope you're not suffering today!

0:09:540:09:58

-After the break, we chat with

-Iestyn Wyn from Stonewall Cymru.

0:09:580:10:03

-There's a number of campaigns

-at the moment.

0:10:030:10:06

-Yes, that's right.

0:10:060:10:09

-There are a few events

-on our calendar.

0:10:090:10:12

-We hear of a new exhibition at

-the gallery in Plas Glyn-y-Weddw...

0:10:130:10:17

-..that pays tribute

-to those who started the gallery.

0:10:170:10:20

-There's also the autograss drivers

-who formed a choir and made a CD.

0:10:210:10:27

-It's Valentine's Day so we head

-into the break with a love story...

0:10:270:10:31

-..sent to us by our viewers,

-Kate Harwood and Kyle Muir.

0:10:310:10:38

-Join us in a few minutes.

0:10:380:10:41

-Hello!

0:10:410:10:43

-We want to thank everyone who sent

-a message over the last few days.

0:10:430:10:47

-It feels like months ago when Wales

-played Scotland in the Six Nations.

0:10:470:10:53

-The Welsh Anthem stopped and

-Kyle was on one knee and proposed.

0:10:540:11:00

-It was a very special moment

-that was shared with our friends.

0:11:000:11:06

-It's a bit crazy that the television

-cameras caught it...

0:11:060:11:12

-..but we can watch it back

-in the future.

0:11:120:11:16

-Everyone in the stadium was

-supportive and celebrated with us.

0:11:160:11:22

-Goodbye!

0:11:230:11:25

-.

0:11:280:11:29

-It's great that other organizations

-support us too.

0:14:280:14:40

-There are many campaigns

-at the moment.

0:14:400:14:52

-The LGBT has to work and everyone

-has to work with them for rights.

0:14:560:15:08

-This work is incredibly important,

-Heather.

0:15:130:15:19

-Their work is incredibly important

-in Wales and across the world.

0:15:200:15:27

-We want to send a positive message.

0:15:270:15:32

-Wales is leading the way

-in terms of LGBT rights.

0:15:320:15:39

-Thank you.

0:15:390:15:40

-Next, we head to Llanbedrog

-near Pwllheli...

0:15:410:15:47

-..to hear of the latest exhibition

-at the gallery in Plas Glyn-y-Weddw.

0:15:470:15:57

-Gerallt will explain it all.

0:15:570:16:01

-Welcome to Plas Glyn-y-Weddw Gallery

-in Llanbedrog.

0:16:040:16:07

-As a programme, we always receive

-a warm welcome here.

0:16:070:16:10

-The current exhibition

-celebrates the legacy...

0:16:110:16:14

-..of Gwyneth and Dafydd ap Tomos,

-who founded this gallery.

0:16:150:16:19

-There wouldn't be a gallery in

-Llanbedrog were it not for them.

0:16:190:16:25

-It was 1979, when Plas Glyn-y-Weddw

-was in danger of being dilapidated.

0:16:310:16:36

-It was then that Gwyneth and Dafydd

-ap Tomos started on a venture...

0:16:370:16:42

-..that is a now a gallery

-of national importance.

0:16:420:16:46

-It's the turn of the gallery

-to thank the pair.

0:16:460:16:50

-As a gallery, we felt it was time

-for us to pay tribute to the couple.

0:16:500:16:55

-Gwyneth passed away in December 2016

-and we wanted to thank them.

0:16:550:17:04

-Portraits of Wales and Snowdon were

-the subjects of Gwyneth works.

0:17:090:17:15

-Legacy is an appropriate name

-for the exhibition...

0:17:150:17:19

-..that celebrates the couples

-contribution.

0:17:190:17:23

-How many people told you

-that you were making a mistake?

0:17:270:17:35

-Many people thought we were insane.

0:17:350:17:39

-We were shocked that my father and

-Gwyneth's mother didn't think it...

0:17:400:17:47

-..and that meant more than what

-anyone else said.

0:17:470:17:53

-As you look on the place today,

-you must be extremely proud.

0:17:530:18:01

-It took a lot of work, but it has

-become a home for Welsh artists.

0:18:010:18:13

-The images of you in this room are

-better than anything from Hollywood.

0:18:130:18:23

-The images are the style of the time

-in black and white.

0:18:230:18:32

-Many modern artists have contributed

-images to the exhibition...

0:18:340:18:38

-..and Rob Piercy from Porthmadog

-is one of those.

0:18:380:18:43

-It's an honour to be a part

-of this important exhibition.

0:18:440:18:48

-Gwyneth ap Tomos was important

-in my career.

0:18:490:18:57

-Through knowing Gwyneth,

-I exhibited my work in Cardiff...

0:18:570:19:08

-..which has led me

-from one thing to another.

0:19:080:19:14

-I'm so pleased to see that people

-are appreciating their work.

0:19:140:19:23

-The exhibition is an opportunity for

-modern artists to react to the work.

0:19:260:19:31

-These panels behind me will move

-to a permanent home upstairs...

0:19:320:19:39

-..thanks to funding from the Welsh

-Government to mark their work.

0:19:390:19:46

-Another artist exhibiting

-their work is Catrin Williams.

0:19:540:20:00

-How did you react to the work and

-life of Gwyneth ap Tomos?

0:20:000:20:04

-I created a landscape portrait

-of Pwllheli.

0:20:050:20:10

-You can see my experience of being

-in a lovely area...

0:20:100:20:15

-..with the teapot dance, wonderful

-culture and Gwyneth's welcome.

0:20:160:20:21

-This is a very exciting time for you

-as an artist.

0:20:210:20:25

-Your work is on the way

-to Chongqing in China.

0:20:260:20:32

-Yes, Oriel Tegryn - Martin Tinney

-Gallery is responsible.

0:20:320:20:37

-Over 100 pieces are going,

-four of the pieces are mine.

0:20:370:20:42

-They are celebrating the New Year

-and we're celebrating Welsh art.

0:20:420:20:48

-Congratulations.

0:20:480:20:51

-On Saturday 3 March at 2.00pm,

-Dafydd ap Tomos will hold a tour...

0:20:510:20:57

-..around the exhibition

-at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw.

0:20:570:21:02

-It will be very interesting.

0:21:020:21:06

-From all of us

-at Plas Glyn-y-Weddw, goodbye.

0:21:060:21:10

-Don't forget about that guided tour

-in the gallery.

0:21:100:21:14

-Good luck to Catrin

-and her work in China.

0:21:140:21:18

-Do you know anything

-about autograss?

0:21:180:21:21

-It's a sport where drivers

-speed around on grass and mud...

0:21:210:21:26

-..with the "pedal to the metal!"

0:21:260:21:31

-Some drivers and fans meet for

-another reason and that's to sing...

0:21:310:21:37

-..and the Autograss Allstars

-have just released their debut CD.

0:21:370:21:44

-Autograss drivers do a lot

-of fund-raising for charity.

0:21:570:22:00

-Four years ago when the last

-Band Aid single was recorded...

0:22:020:22:07

-..I posted on Facebook that

-autograss group should do the same.

0:22:080:22:13

-It started the ball rolling

-and the project grew.

0:22:130:22:17

-Last August,

-we revealed our plan to the world.

0:22:170:22:21

-# Fly me up to where you are

-beyond the distant star #

0:22:220:22:32

-We all met for the first time

-in Walsall in October...

0:22:320:22:36

-..and came to Llangennech

-in December to record it.

0:22:370:22:40

-We rehearsed in the school...

0:22:400:22:43

-..before recording the CD with

-Tim Hammil at Sonic One Studios.

0:22:430:22:47

-# A breath away's not far

-to where you are #

0:22:470:22:54

-Nobody in the choir had sung before

-other than in the shower or karaoke.

0:22:550:22:59

-We met in Walsall

-and I took the role of conductor...

0:22:590:23:03

-..and spent time with the sopranos,

-altos, tenors and bass singers...

0:23:030:23:09

-..to fine polish all they had learnt

-and incorporate a few things.

0:23:090:23:15

-It's been very odd because I'm

-familiar with working with choirs...

0:23:150:23:21

-..and autograss racing...

0:23:210:23:24

-..and never expected both worlds

-to meet in the middle.

0:23:250:23:28

-Our fund-raising target for Cancer

-Research UK has moved many times.

0:23:280:23:34

-It's a crucial charity

-that is important to many of us.

0:23:340:23:37

-# Oh-oh-oh-oh #

0:23:380:23:42

-I'm proud of what we've achieved.

0:23:420:23:45

-Everyone involved can't believe

-how successful the songs have been.

0:23:450:23:50

-We hope to raise a lot of money.

0:23:500:23:52

-There's no telling

-what our next project will be!

0:23:530:23:56

-# Will I see you again? #

0:23:560:23:59

-All the songs

-are available on iTunes...

0:24:030:24:05

-..and all proceeds

-go to Cancer Research UK.

0:24:050:24:09

-We've just received an email about

-an event tomorrow.

0:24:090:24:14

-It's RIFIW 2017 by Clwb y Dwrlyn...

0:24:140:24:16

-..which is the Welsh Society

-in Creigiau and Pentyrch.

0:24:170:24:20

-It's at the Pentyrch Rugby Club

-from 8.00pm tomorrow.

0:24:200:24:23

-It's a light-hearted look over the

-year through sketches and songs.

0:24:240:24:28

-All are welcome to the free event.

0:24:290:24:31

-After the break, we meet

-a postman from Pembrokeshire...

0:24:310:24:35

-..who has set himself a massive

-challenge as he turns 40.

0:24:350:24:39

-Cefin Vaughan,

-welcome to the programme.

0:24:400:24:43

-There's the Welsh influence on the

-latest series on Sky Atlantic...

-which is all about the Romans.

0:24:480:24:53
