-..and Gerallt has been
-on a wander with him.
-Ewloe Castle is locally known
-as the castle in the woods.
-The castle is partly hidden by
-the trees between Mold and Wrexham.
-It is a Welsh castle and Rhys Mwyn
-is eager for today's Welsh people...
-..to know more about its history.
-Rhys, you mention that the Welsh
-have ignored their own castles.
-We have totally ignored this one,
-It's a very good point.
-This castle was probably built
-by Llywelyn, Our Last Leader.
-Its location is important as we're
-in Ewloe, not far from Chester.
-There is some high ground
-to the east.
-it might have been a meeting place.
-Llywelyn, or the Gwynedd Princes,
-met the English from Chester here.
-It's a political location,
-not a defensive one.
-It's between the English
-It's amazing to see so much
-of the castle still standing.
-It's certainly worth seeing.
-This is the main tower, the keep.
-If you looked from above it is
-a D shape having been squashed.
-These are typical of the Gwynedd
-Princes, the two Llywelyns...
-..Llywelyn the Great
-and Llywelyn, Our Last Leader.
-You don't see these D-shaped towers
-in English or Norman castles.
-It means that you have a big enough
-rectangular room for your meetings.
-The circular side looking
-over the entrance...
-..allows a better view of
-who's visiting the castle.
-These are unique
-to the Gwynedd Princes.
-We've talked about the importance of
-Ewloe Castle as a meeting place...
-..for the Gwynedd Princes
-and the English.
-We also have these stone
-It's an additional wall
-on the side of the castle.
-It is to protect
-from rocks or missiles.
-If the castle was attacked
-with a trebuchet and boulders...
-..the walls built this way would
-cause the rocks to bounce off.
-The Welsh Princes built this in
-the contemporary English style...
-..to show their status and wealth.
-You could suggest
-that it's showing off!
-Cam Arall i'r Gorffennol
-is your second such volume.
-Meirion Ginsberg, the artist,

-in the afternoon.

-People can read about and to enjoy
-Wales' very special heritage.

-To join Rhys Mwyn on a walk to
-Dolbadarn and Dolforwyn castles...
-..go to Y Festri in Llanberis
-by 2.00pm this Saturday...

-as a bit of a Steven Spielberg?
-The Iris Festival is one of the
-world's largest LGBT film festivals.
-The Cardiff-based festival is
-looking for entries for this year.
-Berwyn Rowlands, founder of
-the festival, has all the details.
-Last year was an important year,
-our tenth birthday...
-..and we saw a British winner
-of the two main prizes.
-Maybe it was the 10th anniversary
-..but we had a huge increase
-of entries last year.
-They were all of a high standard.
-We have already had
-many film submitted.
-You have until June to enter.
-My only advice is that you
-make sure it's entertaining.
-All the winners of Iris since 2007
-have entertained the audience.
-As a Welshman, it would great to see
-a Welsh winner of Iris some day.
-Tara Bethan is my studio guest.
-Iris does a good job.
-It's a great idea.
-You have recently trained
-as a yoga coach.
-I've been practicing it
-for nine years.
-I started to help with dance
-injuries and keep fit.
-I went to a wedding in India
-and decided to do yoga.
-I decided to learn out in India.
-It took a month and there's was a
-lot of work involved.
-There was a lot of written work.
-There was paperwork and we chatted
-We also had to sit in silence for
-You gave your first lesson
-I held a class at Yoga Boat
-It's held in the morning.
-Seeing Anthony Evans' work
-is always an amazing experience.
-Originally from Carmarthenshire...
-..he has painted Welsh landscapes
-in his own unique style.
-His latest exhibition is at
-the Canfas Gallery in Cardiff.
-It highlights places which have
-inspired him over the decades.
-Rhodri went to have a chat with him.
-A Few Special Places
-is the tile of the exhibition.
-I consider each of these places
-as a source of ideas.
-I have been visiting them
-since I was a child.
-I return to these places
-because I am always inspired.
-I am a landscape artist.
-You have to venture out into the
-landscape, wander and walk around.
-If I don't do that, things go flat.
-The work goes flat,
-I go flat and my batteries go flat.
-I have to go outside.
-I jump in the car or the campervan.
-I go off, stop the campervan, open
-the doors and get my sketch book.
-It's a kind of visual diary.
-What I try to do is to convey
-the feeling of being at the place.
-It's the emotion and narrative
-that's important to me.
-That means facing up to
-and challenging the elements...
-..embracing unsettled weather at its
-best and very tough at its worst.
-It also means spending time in some
-remote places like Bardsey Island.
-I was there for a week and we had
-three good days and four of rain.
-I was out every day
-wandering around the island.
-Bardsey, like Wales, is a microcosm.
-It was important to me that I was
-out in the rain and the storms...
-..and that I saw the birds
-moving in the wind.
-That is why I'm here.
-Some places are always inspiring,
-where the artist feels a connection.
-Maybe he even feels he belongs.
-Some places in North Pembrokeshire,
-Cardiganshire and Carmarthenshire...
-..have a magical quality,
-like a magnet.
-My grandparents' farm,
-My mother said it meant...
-..the opening in the hedge
-where the nightingale sang.
-I always wondered
-who came up with that name.
-It's often a source of ideas for me.
-I see it all up here.
-In some places,
-I take a journey in my mind.
-You also travel on the continent,
-which also inspires you.
-I have two pictures
-of Saint Cado Island in Brittany.
-I was smoking when I first saw
-the island of Saint Cado.
-I was in a cafe with a glass of wine
-and a Gitane.
-I watched a man
-loading a small boat.
-Off he went into the sun and I
-thought that's the life for me!
-Maybe I'd have paint brushes
-rather than fishing gear.
-That is the ideal life.
-However, the artist and his work
-always returns to Wales.
-To Pontypridd and the Valleys...
-..to the west coast and
-the mountains in the north.
-What is Anthony trying to convey
-in this new exhibition?
-The feeling of love towards
-landscape and towards Wales.
-People can identify with that.
-Some people might not
-like the style.
-I've seen people walk in and out
-of an exhibition in minutes...
-..but I've also seen people cry
-in front of a picture.
-It's an experience of seeing,
-understanding and feeling.
-That's what's important.
-The exhibition runs at the Canfas
-Gallery up until 5 February.
-Tara Bethan has been my studio guest
-We've already talked about
-the acting and the yoga.
-But you're also still singing.
-I'm a backing singer for Charlotte
-I suffer from stage fright.
-The third episode of Darren Drws
-Nesa airs at 8.25pm on Thursday.
-That's all from us this evening,

-Rhodri will be at Glaspant Manor.
-Genesis and Black Sabbath...
-..are some of the famous names
-who spent time here over the years.
-I'll have the whole story tomorrow
-night, and by the way it's for sale.
-Llinos also catches up with Garmon
-Rhys, who's currently starring...
