0:02:260:02:29

-Sbarc and Seren play a major role in

0:02:330:02:36

-Alun Williams joined

-the celebrations.

0:02:360:02:38

-The aim of the Welsh

-Language Charter...

0:02:420:02:44

-..is to encourage children

-to speak Welsh more often socially.

0:02:440:02:48

-It's a Welsh Government venture

-which has travelled across Wales.

0:02:480:02:52

-Today, they've reached

-Ysgol Gymraeg Cwmbran.

0:02:530:03:01

-The Welsh Charter

-is a new project...

0:03:010:03:04

-..which hopes to have 1M

-Welsh speakers by 2050.

0:03:040:03:09

-Today, we celebrate the school's

-successes and launching the project.

0:03:090:03:14

-A couple of us at the school

-co-ordinate the Charter.

0:03:140:03:17

-to think of ways forward...

0:03:180:03:21

-confident using the language...

0:03:220:03:27

-..inside and outside the school.

-Sbarc and Seren are the official

-mascots of the Welsh Charter.

0:03:320:03:35

-They are on the posters and the

-children have got to know them.

0:03:350:03:40

-They are here today, ready to launch

-the charter in the school.

0:03:400:03:43

-We are selling stuff and helping

-people to speak Welsh.

0:03:430:03:53

-We are selling stuff so children

-and parents can speak Welsh.

0:03:530:04:02

-How important is it

-that people learn Welsh?

0:04:020:04:06

-It's important to speak Welsh and

-we all need to start speaking it.

0:04:060:04:11

-There are challenges outside school.

0:04:120:04:16

-There are Welsh Apps, Welsh TV

-and contemporary Welsh music.

0:04:160:04:20

-We are asking parents

-to support us...

0:04:200:04:23

-..by helping their children to

-use these resources.

0:04:240:04:27

-It will give them a better

-experience of the language...

0:04:270:04:31

-..and make them more confident

-to make Welsh part of their lives.

0:04:310:04:34

-We've had a positive response

-from all the schools in this area.

0:04:340:04:38

-The parents have also been positive.

0:04:380:04:40

-They have made the decision to send

-their children to a welsh school.

0:04:400:04:44

-They want to promote the language

-and raise its status in the area.

0:04:450:04:48

-Joe, without wishing to sound rude,

-what on earth are you doing here?

0:04:480:04:53

-Coming from Bristol, I've always

-been a bit of a Wenglophile.

0:04:530:04:57

-Not so fond of Cardiff City FC,

-who beat us on the weekend.

0:04:570:05:02

-I'm a massive fan of Welsh TV,

-theatre, poetry and music.

0:05:020:05:08

-We grew up on it.

0:05:080:05:11

-My girlfriend is a first-language

-Welsh speaker and we've had a son.

0:05:110:05:15

-I want to know how to get involved

-and learn your beautiful language.

0:05:150:05:19

-Fair play to you, "Chwarae teg" -

-there's your first lesson!

0:05:190:05:22

-I don't know what that means

-because it's very early days.

0:05:230:05:27

-On the App on my phone,

-it talks a lot about lamb meat.

0:05:270:05:31

-If you need someone to ask

-for "Cig oen", I'm your man!

0:05:310:05:34

-Brilliant.

0:05:340:05:35

-Brilliant.

-

-It's early days.

0:05:350:05:36

-Joe, thank you and good luck.

0:05:360:05:38

-Joe, thank you and good luck.

-

-You're welcome.

0:05:380:05:41

-Many children's parents have

-had Welsh-medium education...

0:05:410:05:45

-..but who have lost confidence

-over time.

0:05:450:05:49

-We hope to boost everyone's

-confidence with this venture...

0:05:490:05:54

-..and for people to use Welsh

-in every aspect of their lives.

0:05:540:05:58

-Some important work being done

0:06:230:06:28

-Here is the man behind the voice.

0:06:280:06:38

-across Wales.

0:06:380:06:43

0:08:340:08:38

0:09:570:10:05

0:12:280:12:30

-..but English-penned tracks

-such as Lola, Waterloo Sunset...

0:12:340:12:37

-..and Dedicated Follower of Fashion

-are among the Sixties biggest hits.

0:12:380:12:42

-Yes, the songs are iconic.

0:12:420:12:52

-They were lovely songs with great

-melodies.

0:12:520:12:55

-If you remember this era

-and are a fan of The Kinks...

-# And left me in this stately home

0:13:140:13:18

-# Lazing on a sunny afternoon #

0:13:180:13:22

-Thanks for the chat before you

-step on stage for the matinee.

0:13:230:13:29

-Tell us more about Sunny Afternoon.

0:13:290:13:34

-It follows the story of The Kinks

-who formed back in the Sixties.

0:13:350:13:41

-They started as youngsters jamming

-in a changing room and in the house.

0:13:410:13:48

-They played around on their guitars

-and became international superstars.

0:13:480:13:55

-# Are you listening to me? #

0:13:550:14:00

-I portray the bassist, Pete Quaife.

0:14:000:14:04

-Ray Davies and Dave Davies

-were also band members.

0:14:040:14:09

-They were the original

-Gallagher brothers.

0:14:090:14:12

-There was a lot of feuds

-and conflict between them.

0:14:120:14:15

-Pete is stuck in the middle of them.

0:14:150:14:19

-Each actor has to play an instrument

-so is it an added pressure for you?

0:14:190:14:25

-Yes it does.

0:14:250:14:27

-There's a part where I have to

-dance, sing and play the guitar...

0:14:280:14:31

-..all whilst acting.

0:14:310:14:35

-I'm doing four things at the same

-time and it can be challenging.

0:14:360:14:44

-# Lola

0:14:440:14:46

-# La-la-la-la Lola #

0:14:460:14:50

-Were you a fan of The Kinks?

0:14:510:14:53

-Were you a fan of The Kinks?

-

-Yes, massively.

0:14:530:14:56

-I didn't realize how much of

-an influence they had on rock music.

0:14:560:15:02

-They helped to develop the sound

-of distortion and the fuzzy guitars.

0:15:020:15:10

-When I had the job, I listened

-to their whole back catalogue...

0:15:100:15:16

-..and realized how good they were.

0:15:160:15:22

-# Help me, help me,

-help me, sail away #

0:15:220:15:28

-Give us an example of the songs

-in the show.

0:15:290:15:31

-There's Days, Lola, You Really Got

-Me, All Day and All of the Night...

0:15:320:15:36

-..and Set Me Free.

0:15:360:15:38

-Do you see the audience singing

-along to these recognizable songs?

0:15:380:15:44

-It's a satisfying feeling

-when we look out into the audience.

0:15:440:15:50

-This is half way

-between a drama and a gig.

0:15:500:15:54

-People forget they've come to see a

-drama and they give it their all.

0:15:540:16:04

-A venue like this offers so much

-to the production.

0:16:050:16:11

-# Are you listening to me? #

0:16:120:16:14

-Where will you be performing after

-the Wales Millennium Centre?

0:16:150:16:19

-In February,

-we'll be performing in Llandudno.

0:16:200:16:23

-Many of my family and friends will

-be coming to see me in Llandudno.

0:16:240:16:28

-The show will be in the centre until

-Saturday, can you sell it to us?

0:16:280:16:33

-The show is a lot of fun, loud

-and is a great night out...

0:16:330:16:41

-..which is guaranteed to make you

-dance, sing and smile.

0:16:410:16:46

-# In the summertime

0:16:460:16:50

-# In the summertime #

0:16:500:16:55

-I love it!

0:16:560:16:59

-That certainly looks worth seeing.

0:16:590:17:02

-The show runs at the Millennium

-Centre until Saturday.

0:17:030:17:15

-Dafydd knows Garmon.

0:17:150:17:27

-I'm sure the show will be a great

-night out.

0:17:290:17:31

-If 1.1 million can ever

-be considered a bargain...

0:17:320:17:34

-..then we've got

-that bargain for you now.

0:17:350:17:37

-Glaspant Manor is on the outskirts

-of Capel Iwan in Carmarthenshire...

0:17:370:17:41

-..and is for sale.

0:17:410:17:42

-For just over a cool million

-you'll get this magnificent place...

0:17:430:17:46

-..that's a holiday rental business

-with a connection to rock legends.

0:17:460:17:50

-Rhodri went to find out more.

0:17:500:17:53

-Glaspant really is quite a place.

0:18:040:18:06

-As well as the Grade 2 listed

-manor house, there's a farm...

0:18:070:18:12

-..holiday cottages

-with seven bedrooms...

0:18:130:18:17

-..barns, which are used as

-workshops, and a lovely lake.

0:18:170:18:24

-But if that wasn't enough, wait

-until you hear about the history.

0:18:240:18:28

-Freddie Mercury

-absolutely loved this place!

0:18:290:18:33

-The present owners have been here

-for about ten years...

0:18:470:18:50

-..but for centuries, until the

-middle of the 20th century...

0:18:510:18:54

-..it was the home

-of the Howell family.

0:18:540:18:58

-They were the landed gentry

-of this area.

0:18:590:19:02

-The squire of the Capel Iwan area

-would have been a Howell.

0:19:030:19:07

-He owned an farming estate

-with tenants paying rent.

0:19:070:19:12

-That would have been the source

-of his wealth.

0:19:120:19:16

-Like other families of this kind

-they were privately educated.

0:19:160:19:19

-Most of them had been Anglicized but

-the Howell family were different.

0:19:200:19:25

-They had kept hold

-of their Welshness.

0:19:250:19:29

-Henry Howell kept a diary...

0:19:290:19:32

-..which records the life

-of the family and the community...

0:19:330:19:36

-..at the end of the Victorian Age.

0:19:360:19:39

-We get to see both sides

-of the family.

0:19:390:19:43

-We meet other noblemen

-hunting with dogs.

0:19:430:19:47

-On the other hand,

-you have the gossip of Capel Iwan.

0:19:470:19:52

-Who was seeing who, who had got

-a divorce or were in trouble...

0:19:520:19:56

-..even who were ill.

0:19:570:20:00

-In the diary, you get a picture

-of everyday life in Capel Iwan.

0:20:000:20:05

-A very different owner followed

-the departure of the Howell family.

0:20:060:20:10

-Angela Lyle is from a famous family,

-Tate & Lyle, the sugar company.

0:20:110:20:15

-One of her best friends, a

-flamboyant character of the '70s...

0:20:150:20:19

-..was Freddie Mercury.

0:20:190:20:22

-He started to some to stay with her

-at Glaspant.

0:20:220:20:27

-This is one of the holiday cottages.

0:20:280:20:30

-Believe it or not,

-but many years ago...

0:20:310:20:33

-..this is where Freddie Mercury

-and many other famous names...

0:20:330:20:37

-..sang and recorded.

0:20:370:20:41

-Queen and other groups...

0:20:420:20:44

-..had stayed at the world's first

-residential recording studio...

0:20:440:20:49

-..Rockfield Studios near Monmouth.

0:20:490:20:51

-Angela Lyle converted one of the

-stables into a studio at Glaspant.

0:20:510:20:54

-Freddie Mercury, Ozzy Osbourne

-and Black Sabbath, Hawkwind...

0:20:550:20:59

-..but the most famous was

-the original line-up of Genesis.

0:21:000:21:03

-The last album they recorded
