-on a postwoman.
-At the moment, some 70 homes have to
-travel to Pontardawe for their post.

-..that they should not expect post
-in the run up to Christmas.
-Why can't the dog's owner control
-Yes, that's right.
-I don't know why this can't happen.
-There's over 3,000 people attacked
-..when delivering items.
-Some people in Ystalyfera are happy

-by a local farmer...
-..when it was a small tree.

-Thank you, Jon.
-Have you started your
-Christmas preparations yet, Jon?
-Yes, I have.
-I've got it all organized
-by my wife.
-is six weeks on Friday.
-Nerys joins us today with tips
-on the items we need to prepare.
-What have you got for us, Nerys?
-The first recipe
-is for a Christmas ginger cake.
-This differs from the usual
-This cake should fill a cake tin
-of about 20cm in width.
-Cream the butter and sugar.
-It's unsalted butter
-and muscovado sugar.
-The sugar adds colour to the cake.
-Add four large beaten eggs.
-Is this your own recipe?
-Yes, it is.
-I have a book at home.
-It's full of recipes.
-This recipe is based on a cake
-I made in 2007...
-..but this one has more ginger.
-I love ginger.
-Ginger and cloves
-remind me of Christmas.
-These are the spices that remind me
-Next, we add 225g of plain flour.
-There's also some ginger,
-cinnamon and mixed spice.
-Don't add self-raising flour.
-It won't rise because
-this is a heavy cake.
-There are many ingredients.
-You can view our recipes online
-I've added the zest of one lemon
-and one orange.
-Next, we add the fruit.
-There's a whole lot of dried fruit.
-I've been nibbling on them.
-There's raisins, currants, sultanas
-It's best to use the fresh fruit.
-These have more moisture.
-The cake needs to be moist.
-There's 300g of the large raisins.
-They might be less after Owain's
-Currants are small and quite dry...
-..so you only need about 100g
-The fruit is left to sit
-in a spiced rum.
-You can use rum, whiskey or sherry
-instead of rum.
-These are left to sit in the alcohol
-for as long as possible.
-This takes a lot of elbow grease.
-Yes, and you can do this
-in a food mixer.
-However, it's quite a loose mixture.
-stir the pudding...
-..and you make the wish.
-I think you should make the pudding
-at the start of the month...
-..instead of at the end of the
-The pudding takes longer to mature.
-I've also got some nuts and some
-There's also some glace lemon peel.
-There's a lot less sugar.
-It has 75g less sugar
-thanks to all the fruit.
-I've greased and lined the tin with
-It needs a long time in the oven...
-..so you need a few layers
-of greaseproof paper.
-It bakes for about three hours...
-..at a low heat of about gas mark 3
-or 150 degrees Celsius.
-This cake isn't going to rise a lot.
-Make a hole in the middle.
-This stops it rising too much.
-Join us in a few minutes.
-Welcome back to Prynhawn Da.
-The Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl will
-be full of talent on Saturday...
-..for the Gwyl Cerdd Dant Festival.
-Robin Samuel is the chairman
-of the executive committee...
-..and Sian Phillips
-is its secretary.
-Welcome to you both.
-You were here a few weeks ago asking
-for people to register for the event
-Yes, we were here three weeks ago.
-People have registered to compete.
-We're looking forward to Saturday.
-This has taken months to organize.
-People who wanted to compete
-is currently being processed.
-We've also held many events to
-raise money for the festival.
-We've held concerts
-and Chinese evenings.
-We had an evening
-to celebrate my father's birthday.
-My father was celebrating
-his 90th birthday.
-in the cerdd dant circle.
-We wanted to raise money...
-..and thank him
-for his contribution.

-Contact us for more information.
-The weather has got colder and the
-garden is looking messy and bare.
-Ieuan brings much-needed colour
-to the garden during the bleak days.
-The autumn colours are incredible as
-leaves and shrubs lose the green...
-..and adopt shades
-of yellow, gold, orange and red.
-Garden centres have many flowering
-plants in pots for the garden...
-..in either beds, borders,
-pots or hanging baskets...
-..and will flower for weeks until
-the frost but re-flower in spring.
-These also flower
-during mild periods in the winter.
-Frost doesn't kill them but
-temporarily interrupts their growth.
-They will even flower
-through a light dusting of snow.
-These are the plants
-that you'll find...
-..namely the cyclamen,
-primroses, pansies and violas...
-..and they represent
-every colour under the sun!
-I've filled this large pot
-..so that I can plant
-a little bit of everything.
-Cyclamen come in white, pink and red
-with decorative heart-shaped leaves.
-You can buy larger cyclamen
-that have bigger flowers.
-I'm using smaller ones to compliment
-the other flowers in this pot.
-Next, we have the primrose
-with its striking colours.
-These also have decorative leaves
-that are deep green and curly.
-And finally, the pansies...
-..and the violas.
-These belong to the same family.
-The pansies are more compact and
-grow between six to twelve inches...
-..whereas the violas grow
-between three to eight inches...
-..but spread over a space
-of nine to twelve inches.
-The pansies have larger leaves and
-flowers of a variety of colours...
-..but less flowers on each plant
-than with the violas.
-There's another difference
-that is important to point out.
-Both can withstand low temperatures
-but the violas are more hardy.
-This is something to remember if you
-live in an area that has hard frost.
-It's best to buy strong plants
-with deep green leaves...
-..and one or two open flowers
-to see their colour...
-..as well as a number of buds to
-ensure a great exhibition of colour.
-And the centrepiece
-for my pot is going to be...
-..an ornamental cabbage...
-..with its striking green,
-cream, purple and pink leaves.
-The colours develop as the
-temperature drops in autumn...
-..and deepen as it gets colder.
-You can eat these leaves
-but they are too pretty for that!
-This will boost your spirits
-during the coming dark, dull months.
-I'm sure the majority of us
-have heard about Movember.
-Dafydd Rhys is here
-to tell us all about it.
-Welcome to the programme.
-is a world-famous charity...
-..which raises awareness of
-testicular cancer and depression.
-These subjects are difficult
-for men to talk about.
-..but it's not popular
-across the world.
-You have to shave at the beginning
-of the month.
-Then you grow a beard or moustache.
-You're growing a moustache, Jack.
-Yes, I shaved
-at the start of the month.
-I also took part last year.
-I decided to do this
-as I'm student.
-We do this on the cricket team.
-I also ran a race for this.
-The team wore our cricket kits.
-It was a hard 5k.
-It was a great day.
-You have to treat a moustache.
-You have to remember the skin
-under the moustache.
-You can get a shampoo
-with an exfoliator.
-If you can't find this one...
-..you can use face wash.
-You have to wash
-this product off thoroughly...
-..or it will cause irritation.
-Use a clipper to cut the moustache
-and a scissors.
-You need to dry cut it.
-These fantastic products
-are available at Christmas time.
-You could grow a beard.
-If you want stubble, you would shape
-the bottom and top lines.
-I would shave these areas for those
-who want a big beard.
-There are a variety of shaving
-You can use the clippers
-on the beard and hair.
-Rub some oil into the neck.
-It will soften the beard
-and contains a great aroma.
-Use a natural thick brush to treat
-the beard daily.
-It will keep the beard soft.
-Do you think a beard
-would suit me, Sian?
-Rhodri from the Heno team
-has joined us in the studio.
-Have you had a beard?
-Yes, I had a beard this morning.
-What have you got for us
-on tonight's Heno?
-Prynhawn Da has already met
-..of the Gwyl Cerdd Dant Festival
-Tonight, we're live in Porthcawl to
-hear of the final preparations...
-..for the Gwyl Cerdd Dant Festival
-held over the weekend.
-There's news about It's My Shout...
-..that produces short films
-for television and screen.
-Jacob Morrish chats about
-landing a starring role...
-..in the musical Priscilla,
-Queen of the Desert...
-..on a Norwegian cruise liner.
-The entertainers, Olwen Rees and
-Johnny Tudor join us in the studio.
-After the break, Nerys returns
-to decorate her Christmas cake.
-Welcome back to Prynhawn Da.
-We close today's programme
-in the kitchen with Nerys.
-Earlier, we made the Christmas cake
-and it's time to decorate it.
-You forgot the ginger in the recipe.
-I forgot to put the ginger
-in the cake earlier!
-It happens to us all.
-There's some ginger
-and ginger syrup.
-Next, we make the marzipan.
-It's made from
-150g of ground almonds.
-You want the same amount
-of icing sugar and caster sugar.
-I like to make my own marzipan.
-tends to be very sweet...
-..and only contains
-about 20% of almonds.
-This homemade tastes like almond!
-I like to add some almond essence.
-I prefer marzipan now
-that I'm older.
-You can add the icing to the cake
-without the marzipan.
-It tends to be something
-that we do traditionally.
-I've covered the top of the cake
-with some marzipan.
-It's decorated with fruit.
-You can use dried fruit and nuts...
-..and decorate the cake.
-The marzipan also helps to stop the
-white icing from colouring...
-..with the dark cake.
-You can buy an array of icing.
-Brush the cake with jam before
-covering it with icing...
-..so that it sticks to the cake.
-I've brushed the cake
-with apricot jam...
-..before placing the marzipan
-Can you use any jam?
-You should let the marzipan
-to rest for a day or two...
-..before using it...
-..as it releases the juices
-from the almonds.
-You can use any jam for brushing
-the cake or some marmalade.
-This cake looks very rustic.
-Yes, and it doesn't look artificial
-like some other cakes.
-I wouldn't normally decorate the
-edges of the cake...
-..before applying the icing...
-..but I did that because we're doing
-this on television!
-The edge is decorated
-with bay leaves.
-Tie some ribbon around the cake...
-..and slot the bay leaves into it.
-I've got some decorations
-to go on top.
-Brush the rosemary with egg white...
-..and dust it with icing sugar.
-It looks like snow!
-returns tomorrow at 2.00pm.
-The journalist, John Meredith
-reveals his prized possessions.
-We flick through the pages
-of the latest magazines.
-Dr Ian Rees chats about
-the condition of colitis.
-Beca has pies galore on Becws
