-But the same needs to be done
-for our medicine cupboard.
-The pharmacist, Cathy Irons
-is here with some advice.
-Welcome to the programme.
-What about the dates
-on pills and tablets?
-It's important to check
-the use-by-date of your medicines.
-You shouldn't use any medicines...
-..that have gone passed
-They have these use-by-dates
-for a reason.
-They are not safe
-to take after that date.
-Some tablets can become poisonous...
-..if they have passed
-I met one lady...
-..who took tablets that
-were four years out of date.
-You'll find the use-by-dates
-on the strips of tablets...
-..that many women will place in
-It's difficult to read
-some of the dates.
-The dates are very small.
-I've never checked the
-use-by-date on paracetamol.
-How long should they last?
-Some of them will
-last for many years.
-if you can't find the box...
-..then check the strips of tablets.
-Some boxes have a date
-..and an expiry date.
-It's worse with medicines
-I've got some medicines
-that are half used.
-Once they are opened...
-..they can be affected
-by various bacteria.
-Medicines should be stored
-in the correct manner...
-..and at the right temperature.
-A lot of people tell me that they
-have cupboards in their bathrooms.
-These are fine as long as they
-are kept out of any moisture.
-They will deteriorate over time...
-..if they are affected by moisture.
-Some of the medicines should be
-stored in the fridge.
-Make sure you check the dates.

-or things that aren't consumed?
-These are very important.

-..for 28 days.

-..of the latest touring drama
-by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.
-There's also news
-of the Time To Change Wales drive...
-..that challenges the stigma
-of mental health in Wales.
-First, we continue our series
-to celebrate Storytelling Week.
-This is our third instalment
-of Hi a Fi by Mari George.
-I yelled "No, I don't want to
-marry him. I don't even know him."
-But my parents loved the idea.
-Llyr left them a mansion
-and plenty to eat and drink.
-So, I became the wife of the King
-of Harlech and lived in a castle.
-I was an island of a wife
-who watched the tides every day.
-I was waiting for a boat to take me
-to a better place.
-Amidst the storm came strong sons
-with their father's fiery eyes...
-..and then came Branwen.
-She wasn't feminine apart from her
-hair that was fine and feathery.
-Her brown eyes were warm like flames
-of a fire on a dark night.
-It wasn't difficult to raise her
-when compared with our sons.
-By the age of twelve,
-she could chop firewood with an axe.
-She was my hero and
-Llyr was very protective of her.
-Branwen, his daughter, would have
-the life of a princess just like me.
-A luxurious life where I wanted
-for nothing other than love...
-a castle full of children.
-Llyr slept in another room and my
-role was to produce his children...
-..and secure the future
-of the Royal bloodline.
-I started horse riding by myself
-to the forest...
-..and the place
-where I met Llyr by the river.
-In that place, one autumn morning
-when I felt happy, I saw him.
-The most handsome man
-I'd ever seen came towards me.
-He took my hand a led to the shadows
-of a tree where we talked for hours.
-He didn't tell me his name.
-As dusk fell, he took me back to my
-horse, leant forward and kissed me.
-It was a kiss that woke my senses
-and I dreamt about it over and over.
-I visited the river every afternoon
-and I never saw him again...
-..but he changed my life
-and was always on my mind.
-There's a famous Shakespeare play
-who's name cannot be mentioned.
-It's the name of a Scot and saying
-his name is meant to be unlucky.
-This is the latest production
-by Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru.
-It's being performed in the striking
-location of Caerphilly Castle...
-..and was translated into Welsh
-by the late, Gwyn Thomas.
-We went to the rehearsals
-before the cast moved to the castle.
-"This castle hath a pleasant seat
-"The air sweetly recommends itself
-unto our gentle senses."
-Macbeth is being performed
-at Caerphilly Castle.
-It's taking place

-the story of Macbeth...
-..it involves some killing,
-some witches and some kings.
-At the beginning of the play,
-Macbeth is returning from war...
-..when to comes across three
-witches who tell him a prophecy.
-From this, he realizes his ambition
-to be king...
-..and this results in murder.
-"And I have learned
-by the perfectest report...
-"..they have more in
-them than mortal knowledge.
-"I burned in desire to question them
-further, they made themselves air."
-It's an incredible production.
-It's one of the late Gwyn Thomas's
-It takes place
-at a Middle Age castle.
-We are also broadcasting live
-for the first time.
-It's a real castle and will
-pose different challenges.
-Some of the rooms that we're using
-have complex acoustic needs.
-The atmosphere it will create,
-as well as the dread and terror...
-..will create a spooky
-feel in the castle.
-We have to consider the weather
-we'll face in February in Wales.
-We have ordered a lot of layers
-from the costume department!
-We've advised everyone
-to put on plenty of layers.
-I've told Mam and Nain
-to wear a scarf!

-I started suffering from mental
-health problems in my teens.
-I was losing weight
-and there was mention of anorexia.
-This developed into bulimia.
-I got over this
-and I joined the army.
-I led a busy lifestyle.
-The bulimia and mental health
-I was raped at the age of 22.
-I didn't want to talk about it.
-I didn't want to accept it.
-I continued with my life, had a
-child and went to university.
-About seven years later,
-I started to have flashbacks.
-It become serious
-and I had a breakdown.
-I suffered from a psychosis.
-I retired form the army...
-..and controlled my condition
-I stopped taking the medication
-as I felt better.
-But I slipped back
-into this psychosis.
-I started hearing voices talking
-to me on the radio and television.
-It was a nightmare for me.
-I had treatment for this.
-I was diagnosed with schizophrenia
-It was a combination of both.
-I didn't feel well in myself.
-Years followed and I came across
-Time To Change Wales.
-I thought it was
-an excellent campaign.
-It challenged this stigma
-and got people talking.
-I tour schools now
-and talk about my experience.
-Talking about it
-has definitely helped.
-You don't have to be
-an authoritative figure...
-..to talk about it.
-The talk can be so general.
-The people who volunteer
-are a great help for the campaign.
-We have them across the country.

-welcome to the programme.
-Today, we're reviewing the novel,
-Pantywennol by Ruth Richards.
-Let's hear from the author herself.
-I've been wanting to write
-since I was next to nothing...
-..but lacked the confidence
-to do so.
-I found myself on an MA Creative
-Writing course in Bangor...
-..so I had to do some writing.
-It was a total pleasure to immerse
-myself in the era and language...
-..and find the rhythm
-of my character's voice.
-I also got to study
-the wider community...
-..in terms of the family and Mynytho
-itself in the mid 19th century.
-Thanks to Ruth Richards.
-Tell us more about the novel.
-The novel follows the story of
-a teenager called Elin Ifans.
-The story takes us to the area
-of Mynytho on the Lleyn Peninsula.
-Elin lives with her mother
-The story is set in 19th century on
-the Lleyn Peninsula in North Wales.
-The subject of this novel
-is a true story passed down orally.
-Ruth has brought the story to life
-in this novel.
-Elin is in her teens.
-We follow her life
-as she becomes older.
-Young Elin has an obsession
-with the supernatural world.
-Elin is branded, Bwgan Pantywennol,
-or Ghost of Pantywennol, by locals.
-I loved the novel.
-But I would have liked to see
-more secrecy about the story.
-I didn't want to know
-who was the ghost.
-The language is quite rich.
-It draws you in.
-The descriptions are wonderful.
-There's mention of her birth.
-She looked liked a ferret
-when she was born!
-There's no love lost between Elin
-and her sister, Catrin.
-Iris Williams from Crugybar
-shares her view on the novel.
-'A masterpiece and captivating novel
-full of interesting characters.
-'It vividly depicts the difference
-between religion and superstition.
-'Ruth Richards successfully enters
-the mind of a troubled teen girl.'
-'The character has stayed with me.'
-I agree with Iris.
-It's a short novel.
-Author, Ruth Richards came close
-to winning the Free Prose Medal...
-..at the National Eisteddfod
-in Abergavenny, last year.
-Pantywennol is a historical novel
-that's only 120 pages long.
-Ruth Richards succeeds
-to write concisely here.
-Ruth is a new name in this field.
-I hope she writes more novels.
-There's a lot of mention of religion
-and the supernatural.
-There are events that take place
-in which we don't know...
-..if Elin is responsible for them.
-She's a new author.
-Since the release of Pantywennol,
-the author has won a lot of praise.
-I've read it quite quickly.
-The story stays with you.
-I would say that the story appeals
-to all of us.
-There's mention of religion in it
-but it suits all.
-Ruth mentioned a series of short
-Do you want to compete in our
-winter photography competition?
-These are the details.
-Venture out with your camera
-and show us your winter.
-There's an iPad or television
-for our winner.
-You have until midday on 24 February
-to take part.
-Send your photos to Prynhawn Da,
-Park Street, Llanelli, SA15 3YE...

-You can also enter via Facebook
-or Twitter via @HenoS4C...
-..or on Instagram
-Good luck to you all.
-and send us your photographs.
-I've got a question for you, Yvonne.
-Do you prefer potatoes served as
-chips, a jacket potato, crisps...
-..or something more sophisticated
-such as a dauphinoise?
-I have dauphinoise every night!
-Today, Alison Huw is looking
-at the humble potato.
-How important is the potato
-in our diet?
-Potatoes have fallen out of fashion.
-Britons eat two to three potatoes,
-on average a day.
-The potato is an important
-ingredient in our diet.
-You may not counted them
-as one of your five a day...
-..because they are
-a source of carbohydrate.
-When cook carefully...
-..they are good source of energy,
-potassium and vitamin C.
-There are many varieties of potatoes
-although we stick to the same ones.
-Potatoes are divided into two groups
-- waxy, or dry and floury.
-Dry potatoes are suitable for
-making chips and mashed potatoes.
-Desiree, Maris Piper, King Edward
-have a floury texture.
-Use the dry textured potatoes
-for making chips.
-Oven chips are considered healthier.
-Scrub or peel the skin well.
-Don't get rid of the peel
-of your potatoes.
-Season with pepper and salt
-and oven bake them.
-They make healthy crisps!
-Many of us throw the peel
-in the bin.
-Ensure that they are dry.
-We turn to mashed potatoes.
-Slice them into large pieces
-of the same size.
-Don't slice them too thinly.
-Dry them with a cloth
-and use a ricer.
-The potatoes come out very thin
-and give a smooth mashed potato.
-Invest in one of these.
-Mix the potatoes
-with some rich foods.
-You can season with salt and pepper.
-Baked potatoes are great
-with a season of salt and pepper.
-You have to make
-the perfect jacket potato.
-Rub the skin with olive oil
-and salt crystals.
-The salt absorbs moisture
-from the skin to keep them crisp.
-They are also fluffy inside.
-Use Maris Pipers for a special dish.
-The Charlotte potato
-is a popular waxy one.
-A tartiflette is a great way
-of making your potatoes posher!
-Tartiflette comes from the
-French area of Savoy in the Alps.
-All you need is creamy cheese,
-onions and lardons.
-It's packed with calories
-We also have rosti potatoes.
-Grate the potato and squeeze out
-as much of the water and you can.
-Add herbs, salt and pepper.
-The classic chip butty
-is enjoying a revival.
-Crisp butties are also becoming
-a trend in London restaurants.
-After the break, Huw has an array
-of coats from the high street.
-Join Angharad for tonight's Heno
-..when the singer, Arwel Lloyd
-or Gildas performs for us.
-He's one of the headline acts
-at the Gwyl Gymraeg Ystradgynlais.
-The Mudiad Meithrin in Bala
-tell us about their hopes...
-..of making it into the
-Guinness Book of World Records.
-The football team in Bala also tell
-us about their brand-new 3G pitch.
-Make sure you join Angharad
-for Heno at 7.00pm.
-We're told that
-there's a storm brewing...
-..so Huw joins us with coats that
-are suitable for the bad weather.
-You tell me about the weather
-all the time!
-It's the time for the spring
-Trench coats are all over the high
-This is made from nylon.
-Check to see if the coat is water
-I won't ask your age...
-..but I'm sure you'll remember the
-At that time...
-..people always wore duster coats.
-It was worn a lot in the 1980s.
-This is a combination of the duster
-..and the trench.
-There's a lot of room in the coat...
-..so you can wear a lot of layers.
-It won't keep you dry...
-..as it's made from cotton.
-The next coat is my favourite...
-..and is by Julien Macdonald from
-the Star collection at Debenhams.
-This coat is 90.
-It's worth every penny.
-I love it.
-It has a great weight to it...
-..so it feels like a quality item.
-This is double-breasted.
-It isn't the best choice when it's
-raining all day.
-This is very tailored.
-It should be stored on a hanger.
-You can also opt for a jacket or a
-This jacket is similar in design...
-..to the previous coat.
-This season, there's a lot of
-This is another double-breasted
-Make sure your shorter coat is long
-..so that it provides some coverage
-at the back.
-Take care when wearing something
-I wouldn't wear a lot of layers
-Next, we've got a quilted jacket.
-This is very light-weight.
-A lot of people who go skiing...
-..spend a fortune on their coats.
-This coat can roll up and goes
-into a bag.
-This is a great colour.
-It's very striking.
-We'll move swiftly to the faux fur.
-When shopping, I meet a lot of our
-They know that this collar comes
-You can wear this coat
-in a variety of ways.
-Don't wear this in the rain.
-It isn't suitable for the wet
-Huw is back with us for tomorrow's
-Prynhawn Da at 2.00pm,
-Yes, I'll be back tomorrow.
-I've got various models who are
-members of the Merched y Wawr.
-Dr Ann opens her surgery
-to discuss heart disease.
-We continue our serialization
-of 'Her and Me.'
-Pryd o Ser follows the news
