0:03:430:03:45

0:03:580:04:07

0:04:430:04:46

0:04:460:04:55

-All entrants must be 18 and over.

0:06:400:06:42

-Christmas is traditionally

-the pantomime season.

0:06:460:06:50

-This family entertainment

-dates back to the 16th century.

0:06:500:06:55

-Tonight, we hear of a pantomime...

0:06:570:07:00

-..that's being performed

-in both Welsh and English.

0:07:000:07:04

-Rhodri Gomer went to hear

-all about Jac a'r Goeden Ffa.

0:07:050:07:09

-Aladdin, Cinderella and Snow White.

0:07:110:07:14

-There's no shortage of pantos

-in Wales at this time of the year...

0:07:140:07:19

-..but the only Welsh panto that's

-a must-see is Jac a'r Goeden Ffa.

0:07:190:07:24

-The lead roles are played

-by familiar faces to viewers of S4C.

0:07:300:07:35

-Jay Worley from Rownd a Rownd

-plays the role of Jac...

0:07:360:07:40

-..whilst Leilah Hughes

-from Gwaith Cartref plays Jill.

0:07:400:07:45

-This is my first time on stage

-playing a lead character.

0:07:450:07:49

-It's a huge responsibility

-to appear at the right time...

0:07:490:07:53

-..and achieve that connection

-with the other characters.

0:07:540:07:58

-It's a great, fun adventure

-with great colours and songs.

0:07:580:08:03

-The bar is set very high

-for this panto.

0:08:050:08:08

-I've never been in anything

-of such a high quality.

0:08:080:08:12

-Everything has to be clean and crisp

-which makes this panto so unique.

0:08:130:08:19

-The traditional panto

-has a long history.

0:08:240:08:28

-They are just as popular as ever

-but why does it appeal to so many?

0:08:300:08:37

-Pantos are fantastic.

0:08:370:08:41

-They encourage people

-to have fun and enjoy the jokes.

0:08:410:08:47

-Children can let their imaginations

-run wild.

0:08:470:08:52

-They watch Jac a'r Goeden Ffa

-but imagine it's The Avengers!

0:08:520:08:57

-It means pantos are perfect

-for adults and children.

0:08:570:09:04

-They are fun and it doesn't matter

-if there's a few slip ups.

0:09:050:09:10

-The jokes by Jac, JJ and Jill

-are for the children...

0:09:110:09:15

-..whilst my double entendres

-suit the adults.

0:09:160:09:21

-The children will laugh at their

-parents but only Dad gets the joke!

0:09:210:09:29

-Mark Jermin is responsible

-for this ambitious production.

0:09:290:09:35

-It's ambitious

-because of its use of technology...

0:09:350:09:38

-..and that two productions

-in Welsh and English...

0:09:380:09:42

-..are running alongside each other

-from now until Christmas.

0:09:420:09:47

-It's a real challenge to do my best

-in both productions...

0:09:480:09:53

-..because some of my lines

-differ due to the language.

0:09:530:09:57

-I'll make it up on the spot,

-hope for the best and have fun.

0:09:570:10:02

-We're in Port Talbot and in Welsh

-at the Lyric on 12 December...

0:10:210:10:24

-You need to start laying.

0:10:240:10:25

-You need to start laying.

-

-I know but this thong is killing me!

-You can watch the carols

0:12:230:12:28

-..either via the iPlayer, S4C

-website or the Heno Facebook page.

0:12:290:12:33

-Let's have a taster

-of today's carol.

0:12:330:12:36

-This is Dolau County Primary School

-with Noswyl Nadolig.

0:12:370:12:41

-# The people of the world praise him

0:12:420:12:46

-# Because it's Christmas Eve

0:12:460:12:53

-# Because it's Christmas Eve #

0:12:530:13:04

-On tomorrow's Prynhawn Da

-at 2.00pm...

0:13:080:13:11

-..you can hear the carol

-by Ysgol Gymraeg Aberystwyth.

0:13:120:13:18

-The nature series on Heno

-is incredibly popular.

0:13:180:13:22

-Many of you have contacted us with

-questions, comments and photographs.

0:13:230:13:27

-Tonight, Iolo looks at signs of

-nature and Christmas traditions.

0:13:280:13:32

-It's December

-and Christmas is on the horizon.

0:13:370:13:41

-Do you know why some plants, animals

-and birds are linked with Christmas?

0:13:420:13:47

-We're going to look at that today.

0:13:480:13:50

-The robin is the one bird

-we associate with Christmas.

0:14:030:14:07

-It's a very familiar bird.

0:14:080:14:10

-There's a good reason for

-its association with Christmas.

0:14:130:14:16

-In the Victorian era...

0:14:170:14:19

-It explains why Christmas cards

-have a robin carrying an envelope.

0:14:250:14:31

-Yew trees are often linked with

-religion, churches and Christmas...

0:14:400:14:45

-..but their importance stems

-to Pagan times...

0:14:450:14:49

-..as Pagans planted these trees

-on their holy sites.

0:14:500:14:54

-Christianity arrived and wanted

-to rid the country of Paganism...

0:14:570:15:02

-..and built churches

-on the holy sites of the Pagans.

0:15:020:15:09

-As a result, the yew trees are much

-older than the churches themselves.

0:15:090:15:14

-The "uchelwydd" or mistletoe

-is a traditional Christmas plant.

0:15:280:15:35

-It was a very powerful plant

-to our forefathers.

0:15:350:15:39

-It's evergreen and produces berries

-during the winter.

0:15:410:15:48

-The roots of this plant

-do not grow into the soil...

0:15:480:15:54

-..but attach themselves

-to a nearby tree.

0:15:550:16:02

-As a result,

-it is associated with fertility...

0:16:020:16:10

-..which is why we hold it above

-our heads and ask for a kiss.

0:16:100:16:17

-Mistletoe is common in South-East

-Wales and parts of England...

0:16:220:16:27

-..where it is sold

-in the market towns at Christmas.

0:16:270:16:32

-These next two plants

-are synonymous with Christmas.

0:16:350:16:39

-It's the "celyn" and "eiddew" or

-"iorwg" or the holly and the ivy...

0:16:400:16:44

-..that appear

-in the famous Christmas carol.

0:16:440:16:48

-Both are evergreen and do not lose

-their leaves in the winter.

0:16:490:16:54

-They were used as decorations...

0:16:550:16:58

-..above a door or window

-in the home or the barn...

0:16:590:17:04

-..to keep evil spirits at bay.

0:17:040:17:08

-They brought luck to the family

-and animals for the coming year.

0:17:080:17:14

-That explains why we link these

-plants and animals with Christmas.

0:17:200:17:26

-I'm a big fan of my food.

0:17:260:17:30

-I suspect a lot of you will

-be eating turkey this Christmas.

0:17:300:17:34

-The turkey is a North American bird.

0:17:340:17:39

-For many centuries,

-we ate wild goose in this country.

0:17:390:17:43

-I still eat goose

-as I prefer it to turkey.

0:17:430:17:48

-If you have a question or comment

-about the world of nature...

0:17:480:17:52

-..make sure you contact me on Heno.

0:17:520:17:58

-Merry Christmas to you all

-and I'll see you in the new year.

0:17:580:18:03

-Merry Christmas to you too, Iolo.

0:18:070:18:09

-If you have a question for Iolo...

0:18:100:18:13

-..contact us in the usual way or

-via Twitter using #bwrddnaturheno

0:18:140:18:25

-After the break, we pay tribute

-to the actor, Meic Povey.

0:18:260:18:29

-The actress, Eiry Thomas,

-also chats to us in the studio.

0:18:290:18:34

-.

0:18:350:18:36

-Welcome back.

0:18:470:18:49

-Last night,

-news broke of the sad passing...

0:18:500:18:54

-..of the dramatist and actor,

-Meic Povey at the age of 67.

0:18:550:18:59

-He was originally from Nant Gwynant

-but had settled in Cardiff...

0:18:590:19:03

-..and was one of the leading figures

-in the theatre, television and S4C.

0:19:030:19:07

-He was one of the original

-scriptwriters on Pobol Y Cwm...

0:19:070:19:10

-..and penned series and films such

-as Sul Y Blodau, Talcen Caled...

0:19:110:19:14

-..Ryan A Ronnie and Byw Celwydd.

0:19:150:19:17

-He was also a successful actor

-on stage and screen.

0:19:180:19:22

-Before we hear some of the tributes

-that have been pouring in today...

0:19:220:19:26

-..let's hear from Meic

-when he appeared on this programme.

0:19:260:19:31

-Everyone who writes plays, novels

-or poetry uses personal experiences.

0:19:360:19:43

-They empathize with a period

-in their lives.

0:19:430:19:47

-It's no secret.

0:19:470:19:51

-I knew imediately that he was an

-entertainer and a talented author.

0:19:510:19:57

-We were great friends...

0:19:570:20:01

-..and he opened his house

-to me every time I visited Cardiff.

0:20:010:20:08

-He was very disciplined and on

-arriving, he'd shout "20 minutes!"

0:20:080:20:12

-He would write for a further

-20 minutes before greeting me.

0:20:130:20:17

-Meic is a disciplined worker.

0:20:170:20:21

-He didn't know the meaning

-of the word, procrastination.

0:20:210:20:27

-He was champion at writing dialogue

-and creating a scene on stage.

0:20:270:20:32

-He could be witty and serious.

0:20:320:20:37

-I don't know where Welsh drama would

-be if not for Meic's contribution.

0:20:370:20:45

-The story and journey

-of the characters is important.

0:20:460:20:52

-Those need to be correct

-and words can be changed.

0:20:520:20:58

-You cannot measure his contribution

-as he was so prolific.

0:20:580:21:05

-We remember gems such as Mordecai

-in Y Dyn Nath Ddwyn y Dolig...

0:21:050:21:11

-..as well as his many other roles

-in both English and Welsh...

0:21:110:21:15

-..but I'll remember him as a writer.

0:21:150:21:17

-He knew his audience and

-that's the secret to his success.

0:21:180:21:21

-Meic and Mei Jones penned Deryn

-and other successes on this channel.

0:21:210:21:27

-They include Deryn,

-Talcen Caled, Teulu...

0:21:270:21:31

-..and Byw Celwydd, one of the

-best things the channel has seen.

0:21:310:21:39

-It's excellent and a lot of his work

-had a strong Welsh essence.

0:21:390:21:44

-Say "No" Megan... say it.

0:21:450:21:48

-Oh, it's Lord Lucan -

-he was easier to find.

0:21:480:21:52

-I'd be here sooner if I wasn't

-running after your father.

0:21:530:21:58

-I think I'll have the prawn

-and avocado.

0:21:590:22:04

-I enjoy writing about families

-and their relationships.

0:22:040:22:09

-I hope the sound and nature

-of my scripts are unique to me.

0:22:100:22:19

-Thank you for that.

0:22:200:22:22

-Have you been caught with

-your hand in the till, Steffan?

0:22:220:22:26

-He had a wonderful ear for things.

0:22:260:22:30

-Any witty comment you said would

-appear in one of Meic's dramas.

0:22:300:22:35

-He always said that it was important

-to care for your characters...

0:22:350:22:40

-..or you don't stand any hope

-of captivating an audience.

0:22:410:22:48

-It's my role to entertain,

-not preach or save the world...

0:22:480:22:54

-..but people pay good money

-to be entertained...

0:22:550:22:59

-..with a story

-that has a start, middle and end.

0:22:590:23:06

-He's left an incredible body

-of work...

0:23:060:23:10

-..as well as a huge gap in terms

-of his friends.

0:23:100:23:15

-Meic never did things by half and

-was full of passion and enthusiasm.

0:23:150:23:21

-He was a dear, funny and open man

-who will be greatly missed.

0:23:210:23:26

-Meic Povey who passed away

-last night.

0:23:350:23:38

-We send our sympathies

-to his family and friends.

0:23:380:23:42

-The actress, Eiry Thomas

-is our guest in the studio.

0:23:440:23:49

-You appeared in many plays

-written by Meic Povey.

0:23:490:24:01

-I acted with him as

-a young actress in English.

0:24:020:24:11

-I worked on two radio plays

-with him on Radio 4.

0:24:110:24:17

-Falling Faces was one of them.

0:24:170:24:26

-I also did a stage play

-called Indian Country.

0:24:260:24:36

-You worked with him

-as a young actress.

0:24:360:24:41

-One of my first jobs

-was when I was 14...

0:24:410:24:46

-..in the early days of S4C.

0:24:460:24:53

-He played an undercover cop

-in the series.

0:24:530:24:59

-I had a massive crush on him.

0:24:590:25:04

-I knew his words.

0:25:050:25:13

-They had a specific rhythm.

0:25:130:25:18

-They were easy to learn.

0:25:190:25:23

-Every scene

-was like a piece of music...

0:25:240:25:27

-..that climaxed with a punchline.

0:25:270:25:32

-It was a pleasure to work with him.

0:25:320:25:35

-Eiry is currently starring in

-the S4C drama, Un Bore Mercher.

0:25:350:25:40

-Let's see a clip

-from Un Bore Mercher.

0:25:400:25:43

-My husband has been missing

-for 24 hours.

0:25:440:25:47

-I came to you for help but without

-any evidence or any reason...

0:25:480:25:51

-..what are you accusing me

-of exactly?

0:25:520:25:56

-You're struggling financially

-and are about to lose everything.

0:25:560:26:01

-Yes.

0:26:020:26:04

-Inspector, Constable,

-I'm here to represent Mrs Howells.

0:26:040:26:10

-This is an informal conversation.

0:26:110:26:14

-No comment.

0:26:140:26:16

-Are you charging her with anything?

0:26:160:26:19

-You play DI Williams

-in Un Bore Mercher.

0:26:200:26:24

-You must love the character.

0:26:240:26:27

-She's great.

0:26:270:26:32

-Everyone thinks that she's a baddie.

0:26:330:26:43

-However, she's just piecing

-together the evidence.

0:26:440:26:56

-I think Faith knows more

-than what she lets on.

0:26:560:27:08

-The drama series is filmed

-in Welsh and English.

0:27:100:27:13

-Yes, and Eve Myles isn't a fluent

-Welsh speaker.

0:27:140:27:17

-Eve has worked so hard.

0:27:170:27:19

-She's a Welsh learner.

0:27:190:27:21

-She often corrected me

-in the rehearsals.

0:27:220:27:25

-I don't know how she did it.

0:27:250:27:27

-The cast is fantastic.

0:27:270:27:32

-Yes, I've been lucky to

-work alongside them all.

0:27:320:27:43

-Do you film the Welsh and English

-scenes straight after each other?

0:27:430:27:53

-We would film one scene in Welsh

-and do it again in English...

0:27:540:28:03

-..or vice versa!

0:28:030:28:07

-It's like climbing a mountain.

0:28:070:28:09

-It's important to recreate

-that roller coaster of emotion.

0:28:100:28:14

-You need to stop it

-from being stale.

0:28:140:28:18

-Thank you, Eiry.

0:28:180:28:20

-Kyffin Williams, William Selwyn

-and Charles Tunnicliffe.

0:28:230:28:26

-Anglesey has produced artists

-of international status for years.

0:28:260:28:30

-We've only named three of them.

0:28:300:28:32

-But there's another artist to watch.

0:28:320:28:35

-Lisa Eurgain Taylor's exhibition,

-Between II Worlds...

0:28:350:28:40

-..has opened at Galeri, Caernarfon.

0:28:400:28:43

-Elin chatted to Lisa

-during the preparations.

0:28:430:28:46

-Lisa Eurgain Taylor from Anglesey

-is making a name for herself.

0:28:470:28:51

-Her work has already featured in

-the magazines, Vogue and Elle...

0:28:510:28:56

-..and her work has been exhibited

-in Rome, Paris and London.

0:28:560:29:01

-Lisa's paitings of Snowdonia capture

-the imagination of the world...

0:29:010:29:06

-..but exhibiting at home

-is just as important.

0:29:060:29:12

-You're setting up at the moment.

0:29:120:29:14

-You're setting up at the moment.

-

-Yes, it's the most important job.

0:29:140:29:18

-My work needs to hang properly

-so I'm both nervous and excitied.

0:29:180:29:23

-I had the invitation to exhibit here

-two years ago.

0:29:230:29:27

-I recently started working here

-so am the artist and curator.

0:29:270:29:33

-How does exhibiting at home

-differ from all the other locations?

0:29:330:29:39

-It's more important to exhibit on my

-own doorstep to family and friends.

0:29:390:29:45

-I got to know the artist

-at her studio in Anglesey.

0:29:460:29:53

-I spend hours in this room and it's

-a great site in the countryside.

0:29:540:30:00

-I love the views of Snowdonia

-and Anglesey.

0:30:010:30:07

-Nature is very important to me

-and I'm inspired by Snowdonia.

0:30:070:30:12

-My exhibition at Galeri, Caernarfon

-is called Between II Worlds.

0:30:130:30:17

-These are ficticious places

-inspired by the mountains around me.

0:30:170:30:22

-People have started recognizing

-my work because of its colours.

0:30:220:30:28

-I like playing with colour,

-light and shadows.

0:30:290:30:32

-The dark shades convey

-the difficult times in life...

0:30:320:30:37

-..whilst the bright colours so that

-every cloud has a silver lining!

0:30:370:30:43

-After many months,

-Between II Worlds officially opened.

0:30:440:30:50

-The number of attendees spoke

-volumes about her popularity.

0:30:500:30:55

-I'm here to open this exhibition.

0:30:550:30:58

-I'm related to Lisa

-and it's great to see her success.

0:30:580:31:03

-I can't wait to see what the

-future holds for her unique style.

0:31:030:31:10

-This is her first solo exhibition

-so the turning point in her career.

0:31:100:31:15

-In the coming years, I hope to see

-her as a well-established artist...

0:31:150:31:20

-..in Wales and Britain

-in terms of landscape artists.

0:31:210:31:26

-She can follow the likes of Kyffin

-Williams and Peter Predergast...

0:31:260:31:33

-..and hopefully me too!

0:31:330:31:35

-The family is so proud of Lisa.

0:31:360:31:39

-She has worked so hard

-on the whole exhibition.

0:31:390:31:43

-It's great to see them

-on the walls for everybody to see.

0:31:440:31:50

-You were worried about this night

-but it's a real success.

0:31:500:31:56

-Yes, it's great to see

-so many people at this opening.

0:31:570:32:01

-The hard work has paid off

-so I'm really happy.

0:32:010:32:05

-The exhibition runs until 5 January.

0:32:170:32:20

-Her work looks fantastic,

-so pay it a visit.

0:32:200:32:24

-After the break, we enjoy a chat

-with the duo, Harmoneli.

0:32:250:32:30

-Rhodri Davies hears about a drama

-about the true meaning of Christmas.

0:32:300:32:35

-Join us in a few minutes.

0:32:350:32:38

0:32:400:32:42

-Subtitles

0:32:470:32:49

-Welcome back.

0:32:510:32:54

-Our musical guests tonight

-are Gareth Jones and Karen Owen.

0:32:540:32:58

-Gareth and Karen

-perform as the duo, Harmoneli.

0:32:590:33:03

-Welcome to the programme.

0:33:030:33:10

-You're a new duo.

0:33:100:33:15

-Yes, we formed about ten months ago.

0:33:150:33:24

-Having said that, we have a lot

-of experience in entertainment.

0:33:240:33:30

-Something happened

-about ten months ago.

0:33:300:33:35

-We tried it and it seemed to work.

0:33:350:33:47

-We haven't done a lot of gigs...

0:33:500:33:55

-..but chose to make an album.

0:33:550:34:00

-O'r Galon is your CD

-and is being launched tomorrow.

0:34:000:34:05

-It's at Pringles in Llanfairpwll.

0:34:050:34:10

-The photographs were taken

-on a beach in Anglesey...

0:34:100:34:13

-..where One Direction

-made a music video.

0:34:140:34:26

-It's odd in terms of our harmonies.

0:34:260:34:30

-I can't sing the melody...

0:34:300:34:36

-..when I sing harmonies

-with other people.

0:34:360:34:43

-It's interesting in terms

-of our work.

0:34:430:34:47

-What song are you performing for us?

0:34:470:34:50

-Tonight's song

-is called Parti Penblwydd Iesu.

0:34:510:34:58

-There's a song on the CD

-called Heno too.

0:34:580:35:04

-You can come back

-and sing it for us.

0:35:040:35:09

-What about any gigs?

0:35:100:35:13

-We've got promotional gigs

-for the CD.

0:35:130:35:18

-Hello to Mari in Siop y Pethau!

0:35:190:35:23

-We're on Radio Cymru with Tommo.

0:35:230:35:28

-We're also going to be in

-various sites in north Wales.

0:35:280:35:36

-We look forward

-to your performance later.

0:35:360:35:42

-Earlier, we heard all about

-the Jac a'r Goeden Ffa pantomime.

0:35:430:35:48

-It's the season of pantos, ballets

-and light entertainment shows.

0:35:480:35:55

-There's also The Chimes.

0:35:550:35:57

-The Charles Dickens story

-followed A Christmas Carol.

0:35:570:36:02

-It's being perform tomorrow

-until Saturday 16 December.

0:36:020:36:08

-It's at St John the Baptist Church

-in Canton, Cardiff.

0:36:080:36:13

-There's an original score

-and the cast are outstanding.

0:36:130:36:18

-This musical differs

-as it features the homeless.

0:36:180:36:22

-Rhodri went to find out more.

0:36:220:36:25

-I can't disapper,

-we can't disappear.

0:36:250:36:28

-Broken, homeless, lost men like me.

0:36:290:36:31

-It's your world,

-your laws that keep us like this.

0:36:310:36:35

-The Chimes is a short novel

-by Charles Dickens.

0:36:350:36:37

-Everybody is familiar

-with A Christmas Carol...

0:36:380:36:41

-..and continued writing

-about Christmas with The Chimes.

0:36:410:36:46

-Take the letter... take the letter!

0:36:480:36:52

-It's one of five versions of A

-Christmas Carol written by Dickens.

0:36:520:36:59

-He wrote this in 1844 -

-I did Google that to check!

0:36:590:37:03

-# He's got no interest paying

0:37:030:37:05

-# The children still are singing

0:37:050:37:07

-# The poor man's rent

-comes around in record time #

0:37:080:37:11

-Those who have seen A Christmas

-Carol should watch this.

0:37:110:37:15

-It's very different with different

-characters but the same message.

0:37:150:37:20

-It's a season of giving and goodwill

-but many are forgotten.

0:37:200:37:25

-There's a parallel in the conditions

-of the characters at that time...

0:37:250:37:30

-..and with the people of today.

0:37:300:37:33

-It's so easy to say something

-about our current world...

0:37:330:37:38

-..by using a story that was written

-about 150 years ago.

0:37:380:37:44

-The Chimes is an opportunity for the

-cast to do something worthwhile...

0:37:450:37:52

-..and different

-for the time of year.

0:37:520:37:55

-I've appeared in pantomimes

-throughout the decades.

0:37:560:38:01

-This year, I set my sights

-on something more serious.

0:38:010:38:07

-Have you never done them wrong

-in words?

0:38:070:38:10

-No.

0:38:110:38:12

-No.

-

-Think!

0:38:120:38:15

-The message is of the wealthy

-against those in poverty...

0:38:150:38:20

-..and the way our community treats

-the unfortunate has affected me.

0:38:200:38:27

-How bare and whithered

-it might become.

0:38:270:38:32

-These were dark times and people

-did horrific things to stay alive.

0:38:320:38:39

-It is still relevant today which

-explains the reason for this show.

0:38:400:38:46

-It also explains the inclusion

-of people in the ensemble...

0:38:460:38:51

-..who have experienced the failures

-of our society in the 21st century.

0:38:510:38:56

-The cast is honoured to work

-alongside homeless performers.

0:38:560:39:03

-It's a massive challenge

-to rehearse as a cast.

0:39:030:39:09

-It's incredible to see their passion

-and dedication to the project...

0:39:090:39:13

-..and amazing to witness

-their growth in confidence.

0:39:130:39:24

-# A vagrant and a villain

0:39:240:39:26

-# The workhouse and the jail

-his only home #

0:39:270:39:31

-The stories of those in the ensemble

-is heartbreaking.

0:39:310:39:36

-It makes you realize that you're

-lucky not to be in that situation.

0:39:360:39:42

-Those in the ensemble have been

-homeless with massive problems...

0:39:420:39:46

-..but have been brave enough

-to join us...

0:39:470:39:51

-..so the message of this production

-is incredibly important.

0:39:510:40:01

-# What's a girl to do? #

0:40:010:40:11

-I hope the audience leave and feel

-honoured to have been present...

0:40:110:40:15

-..have enjoyed themselves but also

-been inspired to do something.

0:40:160:40:26

-Happy birthday to you,

-my little Christmas pudding...

0:40:260:40:31

-..and a Happy New Year to you all!

0:40:310:40:34

-Happy New Year!

0:40:340:40:36

-The drama can be seen between

-tomorrow and next Saturday...

0:40:410:40:45

-..at St John the Baptist Church and

-tickets are available from Chapter.

0:40:460:40:51

-Eiry Thomas is our studio guest

-this evening.

0:40:510:40:56

-That looked great.

0:40:560:40:58

-It stars Rhys Parry Jones too.

0:40:590:41:02

-Don't forget about our

-Christmas Cracker Competition.

0:41:020:41:08

-set by Aneirin earlier.

0:41:080:41:14

-on S4C every Sunday night at 9.00pm.

0:41:390:41:49

-Yes, there's three episodes left.

0:41:490:41:57

-What's next for you?

0:41:570:42:03

-I'm working with Pena.

0:42:040:42:12

-It's a theatre company.

0:42:120:42:16
