-relatively new faces of S4C.

0:00:590:01:02

0:01:020:01:07

-What's Elin got in store for us?

0:01:070:01:11

-Tonight, I venture through

-the doors of this building.

0:01:120:01:15

-It's the brand-new Hafod Lon school.

0:01:300:01:33

-Welcome to Heno.

0:01:330:01:37

-First, we return to Gerallt

-on the Lleyn Peninsula tonight.

0:01:410:01:47

-Good evening, Gerallt.

0:01:470:01:49

-Good evening, Angharad.

0:01:490:01:59

-O Ben Cilan to Bombay

-is the title of tonight's book.

0:02:010:02:07

-I spent the day learning about

-the book's subject, David Jones.

0:02:070:02:11

-The starting point

-for Harri Parri's new book...

0:02:110:02:16

-..was a manuscript or the diaries

-of David Jones from Mynytho.

0:02:160:02:20

-It depicts life of war and peace

-from the Victorian era to the 1970s.

0:02:210:02:25

-It was the catalyst that saw Harri

-Parri pen O Ben Cilan i Bombay...

0:02:250:02:29

-..and protected

-the memories of David Jones.

0:02:290:02:35

-This was his home called Ty Brics.

0:02:350:02:39

-Yes, it's Ty Brics in Mynytho.

0:02:390:02:45

-He moved here in the 1930s...

0:02:450:02:48

-..and worked on the Nanhoron Estate

-and the Ty Brics smallholding.

0:02:480:02:52

-He was a farmhand all his life

-and moved from farm to farm.

0:02:520:02:56

-There are two prominent themes

-that leap out of his writings...

0:02:560:03:01

-..and they are his wage and the

-quality of the food on the farms.

0:03:010:03:05

-Yes, food was important and he has

-detailed descriptions of the food...

0:03:050:03:12

-..and marks them on a points system.

0:03:130:03:18

-He also mentions some of the meals

-such as the old dish of brwas.

0:03:180:03:22

-He also mentions his wage

-as he had four children.

0:03:220:03:27

-Each season,

-he would move to find a better wage.

0:03:270:03:35

-He mentions two definitive things

-in his memoirs...

0:03:350:03:40

-..and they are the Nanhoron Mansion

-and the Great War.

0:03:400:03:44

-Yes, he was forced to fight in the

-Great War and was posted in India.

0:03:440:03:51

-This was lucky as I suspect

-he would have been killed in France!

0:03:510:03:56

-He spoke about India

-when he was at Capel Cilan.

0:03:560:04:00

-David Jones tended to the horses

-in India.

0:04:010:04:05

-He enjoyed this position with

-the horses and came home safely.

0:04:050:04:10

-How long did he spend working

-on this estate at Nanhoron?

0:04:110:04:15

-It was 30 seasons so if my sums are

-correct, it was from 1936 to 1952.

0:04:150:04:24

-He was a shepherd

-but I don't think he enjoyed it.

0:04:250:04:29

-It had one advantage and that was

-being able to sleep at Ty Brics.

0:04:290:04:34

-There's a path between the mansion

-and Ty Brics.

0:04:340:04:38

-He was here for 30 seasons

-until about 1952 or 1953.

0:04:380:04:44

-Moi and Elwyn

-are David Jones' grandsons.

0:04:560:05:06

-I was chatting with Harri Parri.

0:05:110:05:18

-The chapel was important

-to David Jones.

0:05:180:05:22

-He never missed the service.

0:05:230:05:28

-We couldn't go to the

-Sunday School...

0:05:280:05:35

-..in case we interrupted him.

0:05:350:05:40

-I loved listening to him.

0:05:400:05:50

-I could hear Taid reading a verse

-from the Bible every morning.

0:05:550:05:59

-He went to India.

0:05:590:06:09

-Yes, and he was a soldier...

0:06:090:06:13

-..and this didn't bother him.

0:06:130:06:23

-He didn't talk about his experiences

-in India.

0:06:240:06:28

-He led a very organized life.

0:06:280:06:35

-He didn't complain about

-going to India.

0:06:350:06:44

-Taid was a hard worker

-and very organized.

0:06:450:06:49

-He was a man full of work.

0:06:490:06:53

-There's a lot of people here.

0:06:530:06:57

0:13:050:13:07

-For decades, Ysgol Hafod Lon has

-catered for pupils aged 3 to 19...

0:13:070:13:11

-..with special needs,

-in the Dwyfor and Meirioneth areas.

0:13:110:13:16

-Now, they have a new building

-in Penrhyndeudraeth.

0:13:190:13:23

-The official opening is tomorrow,

-but Elin enjoyed a sneak peek.

0:13:230:13:29

-Ysgol Hafod Lon has left Y Ffor

-and moved to Penrhyndeudraeth.

0:13:330:13:38

-It cost 13 million and

-I can't wait to have a look inside.

0:13:380:13:45

-I've only been outside and in this

-spot but it all looks incredible.

0:13:490:13:54

-Would you like to see more?

-Yes, I'd love to.

0:14:020:14:05

-..but the new resources

-are a great help.

0:14:120:14:17

-This site has a hydrotherapy pool,

0:14:230:14:30

-..to communicate and have fun.

0:14:360:14:41

-I'm sure everyone likes this room.

0:14:410:14:44

-Yes, I'd want to spend every hour

-of the day in here if I was a child.

0:14:440:14:50

-They use this room a lot at the end

-of the day and the end of the week.

0:14:500:14:56

-They can play, run around

-and burn off their energy.

0:14:560:15:02

-Your classroom can be transformed

-into a theatre.

0:15:030:15:09

-Music is so versatile

-and enables them to do that.

0:16:560:17:00

-They might not be able to speak but

-can play a drum or other instrument.

0:17:000:17:06

-It's incredible to be able to

-a name for himself in this field.

0:18:060:18:10

-He was a contestant in the series,

-Ultimate Hell Week on BBC Two...

0:18:100:18:13

-..that led him to undertake some

-of the world's challenging races.

0:18:140:18:17

-Owain Gwynedd has been to meet him.

0:18:180:18:22

-But for Huw Brassington

-it was challenging and thrilling.

0:18:260:18:31

-For 12 months, the Caernarfon

-rugby player and triathlete...

0:18:310:18:36

-..pushed his body

-and mind to the limit.

0:18:360:18:39

-It all started with the television

-series, Ultimate Hell Week.

0:18:390:18:43

-I thought I'd give it a go.

0:18:430:18:46

-The BBC Two series featured

-people from various backgrounds.

0:18:470:18:54

-There were gymnasts from

0:18:540:18:59

-..professional boxers,

-MMA fighters and then me!

0:18:590:19:04

-We all proved what it takes

-to be part of the Special Forces.

0:19:050:19:11

-The SAS, Russian Spetsnaz

-and Navy Seals from all over...

0:19:120:19:19

-..put us through their entry tests.

0:19:190:19:25

-We were starved for 48 hours

-and only nibbled on Hobnobs.

0:19:250:19:31

-We performed some crazy task

-such as running against each other.

0:19:310:19:38

-We'd clash, but did our utmost

-then they'd ask you to lift a box.

0:19:380:19:44

-We'd all lug it up a mountain and

-find out we didn't need to do it.

0:19:440:19:50

-They also played with your mind.

0:19:510:19:56

-Some 1,000 contestants whittled down

-to 30 for the television series...

0:19:560:20:01

-..and in the end...

0:20:010:20:04

-Three of us reached the final.

0:20:040:20:08

-And were you named?

0:20:080:20:10

-And were you named?

-

-Yes, I got there somehow!

0:20:100:20:12

-He rested up by travelling around

-India, Australia and New Zealand.

0:20:130:20:16

-..in the iconic Coast-to-Coast Race.

0:20:210:20:25

-It's a famous competition from

-the World Multisport Championship.
