0:02:180:02:23

-It's three years since Pwllheli

-had its first St David's Day Parade.

0:02:230:02:27

-The locals come out in their

-hundreds to line the streets...

0:02:270:02:31

-..and this year

-will be no exception.

0:02:310:02:33

-There is one addition

-to this year's activities.

0:02:330:02:36

-Dewi Pws, now a local lad, has

-written a song for the parade...

0:02:370:02:40

-..with Bryn Fon

-joining him on vocals.

0:02:400:02:43

-It was heard for the first time this

-morning and Elin Fflur was there.

0:02:430:02:47

-# St David, free soul

0:02:470:02:51

-# He did all the small things

-to keep the faith #

0:02:510:02:56

-On 25 February...

-Ysgol Cymerau school today.

0:03:070:03:11

-The composer of the song

-recently moved to the vicinity.

0:03:110:03:16

-He also shares his name

-with the patron saint of Wales.

0:03:160:03:19

-I don't think this Dewi

-is much of a saint.

0:03:200:03:23

-I'm Dewi Pws and not St David.

0:03:230:03:27

-We moved to the Lleyn Peninsula

-over a year ago.

0:03:280:03:32

-We've settled in Nefyn

-and it's great.

0:03:320:03:35

-It's heaven on Earth

-and Welsh is everywhere.

0:03:350:03:38

-It's a good reason for the parade.

0:03:380:03:41

-We want to show the world

-that we're still here.

0:03:410:03:44

-I've written a song that

-the children have learnt.

0:03:440:03:47

-They've learnt it well

-and make the song sound OK!

0:03:480:03:52

-# St David, St David

0:03:520:03:56

-# Come and celebrate your day #

0:03:560:04:00

-Bryn Fon can't be here today

-and he's in prison for a while.

0:04:000:04:06

-No, he's working in Cardiff

-and was unable to come today.

0:04:060:04:14

-But I hope he comes to the parade

-but thousands will be there.

0:04:140:04:19

-More importantly, the children

-will be there singing the song.

0:04:190:04:23

-# St David, free soul

0:04:230:04:26

-# He did all the small things

-to keep the faith #

0:04:260:04:30

-What do you think of the song?

0:04:300:04:32

-It's lively.

0:04:320:04:35

-Dewi Pws' song says that

-St David was a good Welshman.

0:04:350:04:39

-It's fun and I like Bryn Fon.

0:04:390:04:44

-It's great that we've launched

-at Ysgol Cymerau school today.

0:04:440:04:48

-He said that all the small things

-kept the faith.

0:04:480:04:52

-# He did all the small things

-to keep the faith #

0:05:010:05:07

0:06:040:06:05

-I'm not sure.

0:06:050:06:07

-But you've learnt the song!

0:06:070:06:09

-I'm not sure.

0:06:090:06:11

-# St David #

0:06:110:06:14

-If you're at home and want to come.

0:06:140:06:18

-If you come from Cymerau down South,

-Rhydycymerau or Swansea...

-and help make it worthwhile.

0:06:220:06:25

-I'm sure it'll be a great day.

0:06:250:06:29

-Everyone enjoyed this morning.

0:06:290:06:32

-The children were still singing at

-the top of their voices when I left.

0:06:320:06:39

-# St David, St David

0:06:390:06:42

0:07:020:07:06

-It's the race that brings the Welsh

-language alive across Wales.

0:07:070:07:10

-It all started back in 2014.

0:07:100:07:13

-Last year's race was bigger

0:07:130:07:18

-It's great and it raises awareness

0:07:420:07:47

0:07:500:07:53

0:07:530:07:55

-It's money that could make a

-difference in your community.

0:10:180:10:30

0:11:140:11:17

0:11:400:11:42

-From 1.18am our time, the 2017

-Oscar nominations were announced.

0:11:440:11:50

-These are eagerly anticipated

-every year.

0:11:500:11:53

-Who will be stepping on the Los

-Angeles red carpet on 26 February?

0:11:530:11:58

-The eyes of the world

-are on the Oscars.

0:12:040:12:08

-There's something about it

-that captivates us.

0:12:080:12:13

-Andrew Garfield, Denzel Washington,

-Viggo Mortensen...

0:12:130:12:17

-..Ryan Gosling, Casey Affleck,

-have all been incredible actors.

0:12:170:12:20

-But for me, it's Casey Affleck

-in Manchester By The Sea.

0:12:200:12:25

-What happened?

0:12:250:12:32

-Ruth Negga and Meryl Streep

-are usually nominated.

0:12:320:12:37

-But the ones who will battle it out

-are La La Land's Emma Stone...

0:12:370:12:40

-..and Natalie Portman in Jackie.

0:12:400:12:43

-I'm not a fan of La La Land but

-Emma is the best thing about it.

0:12:430:12:47

-However, Natalie's portrayal

-in Jackie is astonishing.

0:12:470:12:50

-I believe the characters we read on

-the page and that being more real...

0:12:500:12:54

-..than the man you stand behind is.

0:12:550:12:59

-Denis Villeneuve for Arrival.

0:13:030:13:06

-Mel Gibson has been nominated

-for Hacksaw Ridge.

0:13:060:13:09

-I think Damien Chazelle

-will scoop it for La La Land.

0:13:100:13:14

-Now for Best Picture, the big one.

0:13:170:13:19

-La La Land, Arrival, Fences, Hidden

-Figures, Hell or High Water...

0:13:190:13:24

-..Manchester by the Sea,

-Lion, Moonlight.

0:13:240:13:28

-Where do you start?

0:13:280:13:31

-I have a feeling that La La Land

-will win this one.

0:13:310:13:34

-It has 14 nominations, as many

-as Titanic and All About Eve.

0:13:340:13:41

-I'm a fan of Manchester by the Sea

-but I think it's La La Land's year.

0:13:410:13:48

-Good luck to everyone.

0:14:010:14:02

-One film that's sure to leave

-its mark on this year's Oscars...

0:14:030:14:06

-..is the new one by Mel Gibson.

0:14:060:14:08

-Hacksaw Ridge

-has received six nominations.

0:14:080:14:11

-Mel Gibson hasn't tasted Oscar

-success since Braveheart...

0:14:110:14:15

-..so could this be his year again?

0:14:150:14:17

-After the break, we'll discuss

-the film's Welsh connections...

0:14:170:14:20

-..and we'll have a clip to whet

-your appetite before it's released.

0:14:210:14:24

-With Wales preparing for the

-Champions League final in June...

0:14:240:14:28

-..the FAW are looking

-for volunteers...

0:14:280:14:31

-..to welcome the world's best and

-most expensive players to Cardiff.

-It's important to show the world

-what Wales and Cardiff can offer.

0:15:310:15:34

-Desmond Doss is the only pacifist

-and conscientious objector...

0:17:020:17:06

-..to win the United States'

-highest military honour.

0:17:060:17:09

-Mel Gibson's new film

-tells his story.

0:17:100:17:13

-Hacksaw Ridge has had a huge impact

0:17:130:17:17

-As Rhodri explains, Doss' actions

-at the Battle of Okinawa...

0:17:170:17:21

-..are inspirational

-and relevant to us here in Wales.

0:17:210:17:25

-Private Doss

-does not believe in violence.

0:17:260:17:29

-Do not look to him

-to save you on the battlefield.

0:17:290:17:33

-Desmond Doss was a simple man

-from Virginia.

0:17:330:17:37

-He came from a very religious

-family who were part of the sect...

0:17:370:17:41

0:17:420:17:44

-When war broke out...

0:17:450:17:47

-..Doss didn't have to enlist

-but he offered his services.

0:17:470:17:50

-Doss refused to use a gun.

0:17:510:17:53

-While everybody else is taking life,

-I'm maybe saving it.

0:17:530:17:57

-That's going to be my way to serve.

0:17:570:17:59

-His fellow soldiers

-thought he was a coward.

0:17:590:18:02

-He was ridiculed, held in

-contempt and he was bullied.

0:18:020:18:07

-Their attitude changed when they

-saw his actions on the battlefield.

0:18:080:18:12

-Especially during the hell

-that was Okinawa.

0:18:130:18:16

-He was willing to die in order

-to save his fellow soldiers.

0:18:170:18:21

-Doss managed to save over 150 men.

0:18:220:18:27

-After the war, Doss was chosen

-by President Truman...

0:18:270:18:32

-..for the highest honour that can be

-bestowed in the American military.

0:18:320:18:41

-That is the Medal of Honor.

0:18:420:18:45

-He was the only conscientious

-objector to receive this medal.

0:18:450:18:50

-I'm going to get you home.

0:18:500:18:53

-This story has struck a chord

-here in Wales...

0:18:540:18:57

-..where the tradition of pacifism

-and similar sacrifice...

0:18:570:19:01

-..stretches back

-to the First World War.

0:19:010:19:04

-The First World War

-is very interesting.

0:19:040:19:07

-In Wales, a group of men,

-mostly from theological colleges...

0:19:070:19:12

-..weren't conscientious objectors...

0:19:120:19:16

-..but were given permission

-to join a medical company.

0:19:170:19:21

-These 250 men went out to France,

-Egypt and the Middle East...

0:19:220:19:27

-..to be part of the medical corps

-during the war.

0:19:270:19:32

-Famous names like Cynan

-and Lewis Valentine were among them.

0:19:320:19:37

-By the Second World War, some of

-them had changed their opinions.

0:19:370:19:42

-Many prominent Welshmen took part

-in this anti-war campaign.

0:19:420:19:47

-Gwynfor Evans, George Thomas

-from the Labour Party...

0:19:470:19:51

-..and Lewis Valentine,

-who'd been in the First World War.

0:19:510:19:58

-We see an increase

-in conscientious objectors.

0:19:580:20:01

-From 16,000 in WWI

-to 60,000 in WWII.

0:20:010:20:04

-People also have opportunities

-to assist with food production...

0:20:040:20:09

-..or caring for people in hospitals.

0:20:090:20:12

-My father, for example,

-worked at a Bristol hospital.

0:20:130:20:16

-My father was a pacifist

-during the Second World war.

0:20:170:20:21

-Interestingly, my mother

-worked at Bletchley Park...

0:20:210:20:25

-..whereas my father

-refused to go to war.

0:20:250:20:28

-He was training to be a minister

-so he didn't have to make this fuss.

0:20:290:20:34

-He did make a fuss

-and went in front of a panel.

0:20:340:20:38

-As a teenager, I learnt

-that he had been a 'conchy'.

0:20:380:20:42

-As I grew up, I became disappointed

-and a bit embarrassed.

0:20:420:20:46

-On the other hand, as a Christian...

0:20:470:20:49

-..the bible teaches us

-that killing anyone is wrong.

0:20:500:20:54

-As he got older, Gethin came to

-appreciate his father's principles.

0:20:550:21:01

-In every generation

-people need to stand up and say...

0:21:010:21:04

-.."No, not in my name,

-I have a different opinion".

0:21:050:21:09

-That is part of our inheritance

-here in Wales.

0:21:090:21:12

-We need more of this because

-our world is full of falsehoods.

0:21:120:21:17

-I think it's an important film.

0:21:190:21:22

-It's rare that we see a film

-about people who oppose war.

0:21:220:21:26

-Hollywood tends to romanticize war.

0:21:260:21:29

-They don't often mention

-the horrors of war.

0:21:310:21:34

-This film isn't afraid

-of doing that.

0:21:350:21:38

-The film is relevant to us in Wales.

0:21:410:21:45

-Wales has a strong,

-pacifist tradition...

0:21:450:21:49

-..and moral courage can often

-be stronger than physical courage.

0:21:490:21:54

-That's what we see from Desmond

-Doss' story and of many others.

0:21:540:21:58

-Private Doss, you are free to run

-into the hellfire of battle...

0:21:580:22:02

-..without a single weapon

-to protect yourself.

0:22:020:22:05

-Help me get one more.

0:22:050:22:07
