-The Screen and Sound Archive

-of Wales...

0:00:010:00:04

-..at the National Library,

-Aberystwyth...

0:00:040:00:07

-..houses 10,000

-of Wales's most important films.

0:00:070:00:11

-This series focuses on some

-of the collection's treasures.

0:00:110:00:15

-We'll retrace the story behind them

-in their original locations...

0:00:150:00:20

-..and co-produce contemporary films

-with the residents.

-The film was created on the campus

-of Coleg Ceredigion, Aberaeron.

0:00:480:00:52

-But when, exactly? And why?

0:00:530:00:55

-Do you remember that?

0:00:560:00:57

-Do you remember that?

-

-No, I wasn't here.

0:00:570:00:59

-No, but I know

-someone who could help.

0:00:590:01:04

-Have you seen this before?

0:01:120:01:12

-Have you seen this before?

-

-No. I wasn't aware the film existed.

0:01:120:01:16

-It's some sort of visual prospectus

-for the courses.

0:01:170:01:22

-Isn't it innovative?

0:01:220:01:24

-It's always been

-a trait of this campus.

0:01:250:01:29

-It remains

-surprisingly contemporary.

0:01:290:01:33

-This was fifty years ago.

0:01:350:01:37

-We wouldn't be so clear cut...

0:01:380:01:40

-..when dividing tasks

-between the sexes!

0:01:410:01:44

-Yes!

0:01:440:01:45

-Yes!

-

-That's been a significant change.

0:01:450:01:48

-The young women were designated

-kitchen chores...

0:01:480:01:52

-..while the lads hung gates

-and repaired tractors.

0:01:530:01:56

-Euros took me

-to the old Domestic Science room.

0:01:590:02:02

-There was a work island

-in the centre.

0:02:030:02:06

-I'm amazed anyone could work here.

0:02:080:02:12

-The views through the windows

-are so distracting.

0:02:120:02:16

-The development of the college,

-followed by the theatre...

0:02:190:02:23

-..ensured young people

-who didn't go to universities...

0:02:240:02:29

-..received

-the best education possible.

0:02:290:02:33

-It began the process of upgrading

-rural communities.

0:02:330:02:37

-Euros suggested

-I visited Theatr Felinfach.

0:02:370:02:40

-When did the college close?

0:02:410:02:43

-It must have been

-in the early 1980s.

0:02:430:02:47

-I can't remember the exact date.

0:02:470:02:50

-For how long have you

-been connected with this place?

0:02:500:02:54

-I attended

-the official opening in 1972.

0:02:540:03:00

-As Front of House officer,

-I'm in charge of the diary.

0:03:010:03:04

-The Women's Institute

-meet here annually.

0:03:050:03:09

-It's the home of a theatre company

-and Bontlwyd soap opera.

0:03:090:03:13

-Schools hold meetings here.

-It's a busy place!

0:03:140:03:17

-I'm in charge of Hwyl a Hamdden,

-a society for retired people.

0:03:180:03:22

-Could I show them the film?

0:03:220:03:23

-Could I show them the film?

-

-Great. They'd like to meet you.

0:03:230:03:25

-Hello.

0:03:340:03:35

-They're brave to join us!

0:03:350:03:37

-They're brave to join us!

-

-They are!

0:03:370:03:38

-I'd stay this side if I were you!

0:03:390:03:42

-Welcome.

0:03:430:03:44

-Who are these? That's Elspeth.

0:03:450:03:47

-Who's in front of her?

0:03:480:03:49

-Who's in front of her?

-

-Isn't she from Llandre?

0:03:490:03:51

-Blimey, she looked like Margaret!

-I'm sure that's who she was.

0:03:530:03:57

-Berian Thomas from Llanilar.

0:03:580:03:59

-Berian Thomas from Llanilar.

-

-Dr Thomas.

0:03:590:04:00

-Gareth's mother.

0:04:030:04:04

-Gareth's mother.

-

-Irene Perkins.

0:04:040:04:05

-That's John Abernac.

0:04:050:04:07

-That's John Abernac.

-

-Byron from Pontsian.

0:04:070:04:08

-I don't know her.

0:04:090:04:11

-I don't know her.

-

-You're too young!

0:04:110:04:13

-You say it was built after 1952.

0:04:150:04:18

-That wasn't there.

0:04:180:04:20

-In my day, we were in that shed.

0:04:210:04:25

-I attended evening classes,

-sewing and that.

0:04:260:04:29

-Are you here?

0:04:300:04:31

-Are you here?

-

-Yes, there.

0:04:310:04:32

-The handsome one?

0:04:330:04:34

-Did you come here once a week?

0:04:360:04:38

-Yes, in the evenings after work.

0:04:390:04:42

-I didn't sit the proficiency tests.

0:04:420:04:46

-I could never do that!

0:04:470:04:49

-I'd never do it!

0:04:500:04:52

-I've been to

-the former Felinfach college site.

0:04:570:05:00

-I had no idea...

0:05:010:05:03

-..there was

-so much activity going on there.

0:05:030:05:08

-The next question is...

0:05:090:05:11

-..how do we tap into that...

0:05:130:05:15

-..to enable us to make a film.

0:05:160:05:19

-I searched

-for inspiration in Aberaeron.

0:05:250:05:28

-I wanted to know more

-about the old agricultural college.

0:05:280:05:32

-Excuse me, ladies. Do you

-remember the college in Felinfach?

0:05:330:05:37

-I studied clean milk production

-there.

0:05:380:05:41

-You attended courses there, did you?

0:05:430:05:44

-You attended courses there, did you?

-

-I was doing everything.

0:05:440:05:46

-You did that, Gwen, didn't you?

0:05:460:05:49

-You did that, Gwen, didn't you?

-

-Did you bake cakes?

0:05:490:05:50

-Ugh!

0:05:510:05:53

-Did you learn

-how to handle such creatures?!

0:05:540:05:57

-Yes.

0:05:570:05:59

-I understand

-you attended Felinfach college.

0:06:010:06:05

-It was a six-week course.

0:06:050:06:07

-We sat an exam at the end,

-as well as presenting a project.

0:06:090:06:14

-We were awarded a certificate.

0:06:140:06:17

-There's a defined line between

-what men and women did!

0:06:180:06:22

-It's more balanced nowadays.

0:06:230:06:26

-Women can enrol

-on car maintenance courses.

0:06:260:06:30

-Men learn how to apply make-up!

-It's great fun.

0:06:310:06:36

-The wife isn't at home cooking,

-as this film portrays.

0:06:400:06:45

-The poor farmer survives

-on a microwave meal for lunch.

0:06:460:06:50

-How are you?

0:06:590:07:01

-BABY CRIES

0:07:010:07:02

-My brother's farming

-and his son will carry on after him.

0:07:050:07:09

-You want to learn

-to be a bricklayer.

0:07:100:07:12

-Why doesn't farming appeal to you?

0:07:130:07:14

-Why doesn't farming appeal to you?

-

-I work on the farm every weekend.

0:07:140:07:17

-I want another trade.

0:07:180:07:20

-Not exactly tidy, is it?!

0:07:210:07:23

-I wouldn't pass that!

0:07:250:07:27

-The aim of the series

-is to create new films...

0:07:300:07:33

-..reflecting modern life...

0:07:340:07:36

-..just as the original films

-captured yesteryear.

0:07:370:07:40

-We want local people to have

-as much freedom as possible...

0:07:410:07:46

-..to express their feelings

-about their area today.

0:07:470:07:51

-Having met

-the older generation of Felinfach...

0:07:530:07:57

-..I arranged to show the film

-to members of the YFC.

0:07:580:08:02

-LAUGHTER

0:08:030:08:04

-I'd have appreciated college then...

0:08:080:08:11

-..because people learned

-their trade thoroughly.

0:08:110:08:14

-People could fix

-anything that had broken down.

0:08:150:08:18

-We have to get someone to do it.

0:08:180:08:21

-They saved themselves

-the expense of getting someone in.

0:08:220:08:27

-I wouldn't mind

-learning the skills...

0:08:270:08:30

-..of baking

-a Christmas cake and sewing.

0:08:300:08:33

-I'm hopeless at sewing!

-I wouldn't stand a chance!

0:08:330:08:37

-I'd like to learn these skills.

0:08:370:08:39

-As far as learning the role

-of a housewife every day, forget it!

0:08:390:08:44

-We tend to think it was

-a lonely and monotonous existence.

0:08:450:08:49

-Unlike us,

-they were housebound all day.

0:08:490:08:53

-Women didn't dream

-of getting ahead in the world.

0:08:530:08:57

-Their place was in the home.

0:08:570:08:59

-If someone wanted to produce a

-similar chronicle of modern life...

0:09:000:09:05

-..what should we include?

0:09:060:09:07

-There's always

-something being taught here.

0:09:080:09:11

-The theatre is very important.

0:09:110:09:13

-It's a centre for YFC meetings

-and Bontlwyd.

0:09:140:09:19

-A choir rehearses here.

0:09:200:09:21

-It has something

-that appeals to people of all ages.

0:09:220:09:26

-You mentioned the radio soap series,

-Bontlwyd.

0:09:260:09:31

-As one of the cast,

-Emyr's the expert!

0:09:320:09:35

-Are you in it?

0:09:360:09:37

-I take part in it. It's based around

-the fictitious village of Bontlwyd.

0:09:380:09:43

-It's broadcast

-on Radio Ceredigion daily.

0:09:440:09:47

-Who's the writer?

0:09:480:09:49

-Who's the writer?

-

-There's a pool of authors.

0:09:490:09:52

-They're local people.

0:09:520:09:54

-It's an entirely local production.

0:09:540:09:57

-It's a chance

-to socialize and meet up.

0:09:580:10:00

-When is the next meeting?

0:10:010:10:02

-When is the next meeting?

-

-Tonight, at twenty past nine.

0:10:020:10:04

-As Emyr and I

-walked to the Bontlwyd studio...

0:10:070:10:10

-..I wondered whether

-he'd like to work on the project.

0:10:100:10:15

-When shall I come and see the cow?

0:10:190:10:22

-Has her condition worsened?

0:10:220:10:23

-Has her condition worsened?

-

-I don't think so.

0:10:230:10:25

-Coffee first.

0:10:250:10:27

-Having spent time with Emyr...

0:10:270:10:30

-..I realized he could

-bring a male focus to the film.

0:10:300:10:34

-But what about a woman's perspective?

0:10:340:10:37

-Carwen spoke well.

-So did Alwen, the club organizer.

0:10:370:10:41

-Eirian and Mererid

-were both confident.

0:10:410:10:45

-Then there was Eifiona. She

-didn't say much about the college.

0:10:450:10:49

-But she was vocal in expressing views

-on farming issues.

0:10:500:10:54

-The proposed government rules

-will destroy small farmers.

0:10:540:10:59

-It's complete madness.

0:10:590:11:01

-The next day, I met Eifiona

-at work in Aberystwyth...

0:11:030:11:07

-..to invite her to join the project.

0:11:070:11:10

-Eifiona! How are you?

0:11:110:11:13

-Can you slip out for five minutes?

0:11:130:11:16

-No problem.

0:11:170:11:18

-Eifiona agreed to help.

0:11:190:11:21

-It was time to move on

-to the next step.

0:11:210:11:24

-I've given Emyr and Eifiona

-a camera each.

0:11:260:11:32

-Between the three of us...

0:11:340:11:36

-..I hope to capture something

-similar to the original film.

0:11:360:11:41

-That is, to say something about

-agriculture in Felinfach today.

0:11:420:11:48

-What exactly

-we'll see within that frame...

0:11:500:11:53

-..is anybody's guess.

0:11:530:11:55

-I look forward to finding out.

0:11:550:11:57

-

-888

0:12:030:12:04

-Having handed out cameras...

0:12:040:12:07

-..I wanted to discuss

-how Emyr and Eifiona...

0:12:070:12:10

-..would record

-their daily lives on the farm.

0:12:100:12:13

-Here's the camera, Emyr.

0:12:140:12:15

-The zoom works.

0:12:160:12:17

-I'd like to examine...

0:12:180:12:20

-..the roles of young men and women

-on farms nowadays.

0:12:210:12:25

-What I do from day to day?

0:12:260:12:30

-And also the opinion of other

-generations, such as your parents.

0:12:300:12:35

-Who would react the best to you?

0:12:350:12:38

-My grandmother is older than us

-and knows more about how it was.

0:12:380:12:43

-I'd like you to focus on the roles

-of men and women...

0:12:440:12:48

-..from within the farm and beyond.

0:12:480:12:50

-We're taking

-two different approaches.

0:12:530:12:56

-We've given two members

-of Felinfach YFC a camera each.

0:12:570:13:02

-We'll film them.

0:13:040:13:06

-Hopefully, they'll get

-easier access to something...

0:13:070:13:12

-..than us.

0:13:120:13:14

-That's it...

0:13:150:13:16

-..their inside view, as opposed

-to our view from the outside.

0:13:160:13:20

-Eifiona immediately began filming

-all sorts of farm activities.

0:13:210:13:26

-We took them to the shed

-at first light.

0:13:270:13:29

-A few have been delivered.

0:13:300:13:32

-This sheep had twins

-and a cow gave birth to a calf.

0:13:320:13:37

-This litter arrived yesterday too.

0:13:380:13:40

-My grandfather didn't like pigs,

-I wanted to keep pigs.

0:13:410:13:45

-He bought me two pigs eventually.

0:13:450:13:48

-I nagged him to get pigs.

0:13:490:13:51

-He grew fond of them in the end

-so we built a piggery.

0:13:520:13:58

-We had a small sty

-in the early days.

0:13:580:14:03

-He had to build a large piggery

-to accommodate all the pigs!

0:14:030:14:09

-LAUGHTER

0:14:590:15:00

-In the same way, Emyr was keen

-to record every aspect of his life.

0:15:010:15:06

-Well, it's now Saturday night.

-I've had a very busy week.

0:15:060:15:11

-We mucked out the sheds

-on Wednesday.

0:15:110:15:17

-We put fresh hay down on the floors.

0:15:180:15:20

-How do you get on working together?

0:15:390:15:41

-No problem at all.

0:15:420:15:45

-We get the odd day when we argue.

0:15:460:15:50

-We don't argue, it's just a debate!

0:15:500:15:52

-We sort out the problem

-and meet each other halfway.

0:15:530:15:57

-Do you tell him what to do?

0:15:570:15:59

-I wouldn't say that!

-Perhaps I tend to give in!

0:15:590:16:03

-Since when have you farmed here?

0:16:070:16:09

-Emyr will be the fifth generation.

0:16:090:16:12

-I'm the only child. I'm lucky

-I won't have to fight for the farm!

0:16:120:16:18

-How would you feel

-if he didn't go on to farm?

0:16:270:16:29

-Disappointed,

-but I wouldn't put pressure on him.

0:16:300:16:34

-Farming is a choice he made.

0:16:340:16:37

-It helps

-that I was raised on the farm.

0:16:370:16:41

-I enjoyed being out

-playing in the mud!

0:16:410:16:44

-The interest must be there.

0:16:440:16:46

-You wouldn't make a success

-of farming without it.

0:16:460:16:50

-How many?

0:16:500:16:51

-How many?

-

-Eight.

0:16:510:16:52

-We're lucky around here that sons

-tend to carry on the tradition.

0:16:580:17:02

-Generally,

-the average age of farmers...

0:17:030:17:06

-..isn't far off retirement age.

0:17:060:17:08

-Who'll give me 150?

-120, 130 I'm bid at the back.

0:17:100:17:13

-Right - 5, 10, 15, 21, 25...

0:17:140:17:17

-...31, 35, 40, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65.

0:17:170:17:22

-I'd arranged to meet them both

-in Tregaron mart during filming.

0:17:230:17:27

-I wanted to know

-how Eifiona viewed this male world.

0:17:280:17:33

-Over the years, it's been a male

-domain and I doubt it will change.

0:17:330:17:38

-Men won't like to see

-a mart full of women!

0:17:440:17:46

-A lot of farm wives go out to work.

0:17:480:17:51

-Maybe, they can't have a day off

-or aren't interested in bidding.

0:17:520:17:57

-They might have to work at home to

-give the husband a chance to go out.

0:17:570:18:02

-Farmers get the opportunity to meet

-up every fortnight at Tregaron mart.

0:18:040:18:10

-I like going there on my day off.

0:18:120:18:15

-It's a break from working

-in an office all day.

0:18:150:18:19

-Farmers' sons, like anyone else,

-need to mix with other people...

0:18:300:18:36

-..or they'd get lonely.

0:18:360:18:39

-There are highs and lows.

0:18:390:18:41

-During the lambing season,

-farmers can suffer heavy losses.

0:18:410:18:45

-It helps to keep busy.

0:18:450:18:46

-Are you looking forward to it?

0:18:470:18:49

-Are you nervous?

0:18:490:18:51

-Are you nervous?

-

-A bit.

0:18:510:18:52

-Hit it - hit it right out!

0:18:550:18:57

-(All) Thomas and Evanna.

0:19:220:19:24

-How old were you when you married?

0:19:270:19:29

-How old were you when you married?

-

-Nineteen.

0:19:290:19:30

-Were you a housewife?

0:19:310:19:33

-Were you a housewife?

-

-Yes.

0:19:330:19:34

-Did you miss

-the milking and mucking out...

0:19:340:19:38

-..or did you prefer being inside?

0:19:380:19:41

-I helped anyone who needed a hand

-with the milking and so on.

0:19:420:19:47

-Were you stuck in the house

-after you married?

0:19:470:19:51

-No.

0:19:510:19:52

-Agricultural work was plentiful

-when Eifiona's grandmother married.

0:19:530:19:58

-But in these changing times...

0:19:580:20:01

-..can Eifiona realize

-her farming dream?

0:20:010:20:04

-My brother's lucky

-because he works at home.

0:20:050:20:08

-I'd like to come home to farm but

-there's not enough work for three.

0:20:080:20:14

-Penlan is a 100-acre farm.

0:20:140:20:16

-We could increase our stock

-if it had 500 acres.

0:20:170:20:22

-We'd generate more income.

0:20:230:20:25

-We're lucky there's enough

-to keep Carwyn and Dad going.

0:20:250:20:29

-How old were you leaving school?

0:20:310:20:33

-Fifteen.

0:20:330:20:34

-Sixteen.

0:20:350:20:36

-What did you do after school?

0:20:360:20:37

-What did you do after school?

-

-I came home to farm.

0:20:370:20:39

-I came home to farm.

0:20:390:20:41

-I came home to farm.

-

-You went to college once a week.

0:20:410:20:43

-Once a week for three years.

0:20:440:20:46

-Could you have gone

-to a college such as Gelli Aur?

0:20:470:20:51

-I'd be away for one or two years.

0:20:520:20:54

-Four or five days a week.

0:20:550:20:57

-I couldn't.

-There's too much work for one.

0:20:570:21:00

-I saw my friends

-in college on Friday.

0:21:010:21:04

-These are

-the new Gelli Aur farm buildings.

0:21:050:21:08

-It's a fairly new college...

0:21:080:21:10

-..even though

-it was established years ago.

0:21:100:21:14

-Gelli Aur's milking parlour offers

-more facilities for students...

0:21:140:21:19

-..to learn milking skills.

0:21:190:21:21

-It's more

-than Felinfach College could offer.

0:21:210:21:25

-The college also has courses...

0:21:250:21:28

-..for mechanics to learn

-machinery maintenance...

0:21:280:21:33

-..to repair and service tractors.

0:21:330:21:36

-The difference

-in tractor size is significant.

0:21:370:21:40

-Back in the old days, the 35 tractor

-was a crucial part of farming life.

0:21:400:21:45

-These huge tractors

-are the farmers' choice now.

0:21:450:21:49

-If I had an older sister, she'd

-probably have gone out to work then.

0:21:520:21:57

-She wouldn't have had the chance

-to stay on the farm.

0:21:570:22:02

-I would have settled

-into the work already, probably.

0:22:020:22:05

-It's boys who tend to stay at home

-to farm.

0:22:060:22:08

-No-one breaks that tradition.

0:22:090:22:11

-It's natural - it's in the blood.

0:22:120:22:14

-After a week's filming...

0:22:250:22:27

-..and the editing process...

0:22:270:22:29

-..the participants

-came along to the viewing.

0:22:300:22:33

-AERON VALLEY

0:22:340:22:35

-I'm glad he wants

-to take over the family farm.

0:22:400:22:43

-Many sons just want to go

-to college to study mechanics.

0:22:440:22:48

-They won't come home to farm at all.

0:22:480:22:50

-I'm glad that the farm

-is staying in the family.

0:22:500:22:54

-I wouldn't want to sell Penlan

-because no-one wanted to farm it.

0:22:550:22:59

-It was nice to see it

-after all the filming. It was good.

0:23:020:23:07

-I enjoyed it.

0:23:080:23:09

-Especially seeing

-your skill in using a spanner!

0:23:100:23:14

-Yes!

0:23:140:23:15

-We like the cakes!

0:23:150:23:17

-Take another one.

0:23:170:23:19

-Take another one.

-

-Did you bake them?

0:23:190:23:21

-You took tips off the film!

0:23:210:23:23

-The film was fantastic.

0:23:240:23:26

-We were trying to be positive.

0:23:270:23:29

-It was positive.

-Yes, there is a future.

0:23:300:23:34

-It was good to hear Eifiona's side.

0:23:350:23:37

-It's not something

-we discuss from day to day.

0:23:370:23:41

-Hearing Eifiona mention

-how the age has changed...

0:23:410:23:44

-..I realized how Eifiona

-wants to be at home.

0:23:450:23:48

-You've both been very honest.

0:23:480:23:52

-We were privileged

-that you'd been so open.

0:23:530:23:58

-Do you regret your openness?

0:23:580:24:00

-No. I didn't say anything

-I shouldn't have! It's alright!
