-We start today's Halloween programme
-by hearing about ghost stories...
-..in the company of Euros Lewis.
-Welcome to the studio.
-What is the meaning of the word,
-Halloween is believed to stem
-from an old Celtic tradition.
-Calan Gaeaf is older than Halloween.
-The celebration was briefly adopted
-by the early Christians.
-The founders of the celebration
-were very humble...
-..but very knowledgeable.
-Halloween marks the beginning
-of the Celtic winter and New Year.
-with the end of the harvest.
-They believed that you could look
-to the past and future...
-Some tales in the Mabinogi remind us
-of Halloween's Celtic roots.
-There's talks of Annwn
-and the Door of Annwn.
-The Celts believed that on the night
-of what we now call Halloween...
-..dead family members could be
-welcomed back for one night.
-They believed that you could look
-to the past and future...
-..but only for a few minutes.
-Lots of people don't like Halloween.
-it's a time to tell stories.
-Before we had electricity...
-..groups of people congregated to
-tell stories during the Halloween.
-They would feast and drink at this
-time of the year.
-It would be a great evening with
-singing and reciting.
-They would recite ghost stories.
-It was the perfect time for girls
-to snuggle up to the boys.
-They would be scared to walk home in
-the dark after hearing the stories.
-I've been doing several storytelling
-sessions in the past few weeks.
-I've heard several
-new stories recently.
-We should share our stories
-to keep them alive.
-Can you share a story with us?
-I've heard lots of talks about the
-White Lady and ghosts and ghouls.
-If nine girls would meet to make
-..with nine ingredients...
-..one would dream
-of the man they would marry.
-There are several rituals
-associated with this.
-In the past, groups of young people
-would walk around a parish church.
-As midnight drew nearer, they would
-take turns to look in the keyhole.
-The keyhole would reveal what
-the future had in store for them.
-If they saw a vicar in white,
-they would be married that year.
-Some of them would see
-a son or daughter.
-the person that they would marry.
-However, seeing a coffin
-was a sign of death within the year.
-There was one girl who wanted to
-know if she was going to marry.
-She wanted a group of friends to
-come with her to the chapel.
-However, she went alone.
-She didn't see what she wanted
-when she visited the chapel.
-She saw a farmer.
-She returned to her friends
-at the party.
-She revealed what she had done and
-that she'd walked around the church.
-The mistress of the house demanded
-to hear her full story.
-The mistress realized that the girl
-had seen her husband.
-She asked the girl to look
-after her children.
-Within three months,
-the mistress had died.
-A little later on, the girl had
-married her husband!
-Thank you, Euros.
-After the break, Cathy Irons
-has tips on how to kill head lice.
-Geraint Jones discusses his work...
-..at the Pembrokeshire Coast
-Join us in a few minutes.
-It's National Bug Busting Day.
-Head lice affect
-children and adults.
-As a mother to a child who's started
-school full-time since September...
-..I'm all too familiar
-with these little critters!
-Cathy Irons is here with her advice
-on how to eradicate them.
-Welcome to the studio, Cathy.
-Head lice are such a problem.
-but forget about the ghosts.
-Head lice are far more frightening!
-They're a nightmare for parents.
-Children need to be treated
-for nits very often.
-Does it matter if the hair is long
-or short, clean or dirty?
-The lice like clean hair
-and dirty hair.
-They don't mind
-if it's short or long.
-They want to suck the blood
-from the scalp.
-That's what they feed on.
-They just want any head to feast on.
-Lice spread between children
-as they often touch heads.
-The lice can't jump or swim...
-..so they pass between children
-when they're in close contact.
-Is there anything we can do
-to prevent them?
-You can try lots of things to
-prevent a child from getting lice.
-However, most of them don't work.
-They're very difficult
-to eradicate too.
-You just need to be thorough when
-you check your child's hair.
-Check them every night for lice.
-We have received many messages from
-the school about head lice.
-Unless everyone treats their child
-..the problem will continue.
-If you don't get rid of the lice,
-they will keep breeding.
-They will lay more eggs.
-I saw one girl with hair that moved
-on its own due to the lice.
-Every time we do this item,
-we all start to scratch.
-There are treatments available
-However, they aren't suitable
-They shouldn't be used by children
-under two or pregnant women.
-You don't need to treat
-the whole family.
-The treatments are insecticides.
-The most important thing
-is to use a nit comb.
-It can be difficult to pull the comb
-through the hair.
-Metal combs are better
-than the plastic ones.
-The combs will help
-to get rid of the eggs.
-If there aren't any eggs,
-you won't get any more lice.
-You need patience to do it.
-However, it's almost impossible
-to comb a small child's hair.
-You can make the process easier by
-applying conditioner to the hair.
-Make sure you look around the ears
-and at the nape of the neck.
-Keep looking at your child's hair.
-These treatments can be very strong.
-If your child has asthma or eczema,
-talk to your pharmacist.
-Prynhawn Da and Heno are searching
-for Wales's new Gelert.
-Your dog doesn't have to be a hero
-but could have helped you in life.
-On Wednesday's Heno, we meet
-the judges and reveal the prize.
-This is how you can
-nominate your dog.
-For all those many dog lovers
-..we're searching for special dogs,
-that really have the woof factor.
-Do you know a pug or poodle that
-has transformed somebody's life?
-Do you own a sheepdog or whippet
-with a heroic story?
-Over the next few weeks,
-we'll travel across Wales...
-..in search of the surprising
-stories of brave, remarkable dogs.
-If you know the new Gelert of Wales,
-email us on [email protected]
-Make sure you send in your entries.
-Our next guest has worked for the
-Pembrokeshire Coast National Park...
-He's the longest serving
-member of staff.
-Welcome to the programme,
-That's a fantastic feat.
-How long have you been working
-at the park?
-I've worked for the park
-for 37 years.
-When I first started, I would turn
-to the older members of staff.
-When I first started, I would turn
-to the older members of staff...
-..if I needed to know something.
-However, they all come to me now.
-I'm honoured to have worked in such
-a beautiful place over the years.
-It's my local area.
-I've been working with the farmers
-and landowners in the area.
-The role has changed over the years.
-The policies and rules have changed
-over the years.
-We've had to adapt to these.
-Nowadays, we offer practical help
-to protect our wildlife.
-Our wildlife is at risk
-due to the lack of maintenance.
-There isn't an economic benefit to
-farming these vulnerable lands...
-..so they've been left alone.
-What we see today in our countryside
-is due to centuries of farming.
-We take all these things
-At this time of the year...
-..we work with farmers to promote
-safe burning of heather and gorse.
-We provide support for farmers
-within the National Park.
-Burning gorse and heather
-is a tradition.
-We work with farmers and landowners
-to start safe fires.
-Burning on high ground is permitted
-between 1 October and 31 March.
-Many people don't realize the
-benefits behind it.
-There are several benefits
-to burning gorse and heather.
-It gets rid of old growth and
-promotes new growth.
-It's beneficial to the wildlife
-that feeds on it.
-It renews the area and promotes new
-plants to grow.
-It also reduces the risk
-There are several benefits
-..but by following the rules.
-There's been a lot in the news
-about rubbish and plastics.
-One of the perks of my job
-is the variety that I see.
-I work with a variety of people and
-speak to different people.
-I've been talking to youngsters
-We discussed the plastic that's
-found on our coastline.
-The recent storms have caused
-problems for plastic on beaches.
-There's plastic on our beaches
-after the recent storms.
-There are also small particles
-of plastic in the sea.
-You've discussed conditioner
-on today's programme.
-However, there are micro-particles
-in our conditioners.
-They are harmful to our wildlife.
-Thank you, Geraint.
-That's all for now.
-Get a cuppa
-and we'll see you in a few minutes.
-Still to come...
-..we find out what changed the life
-of our guest, Rebecca Vrecar.
-Huw opens his trendy wardrobe
-and has items to keep us all warm.
-We hope there won't be
-any bats flying out of it!
-Make sure you stay with us.
-Today, our ghost hunt continues
-in the Swansea area.
-We've rummaged through our archive
-to join Daf at Oystermouth Castle.
-The Gower is one of the most
-beautiful locations in Wales.
-It attracts many tourists
-throughout the year.
-is another tourist hotspot.
-It attracts visitors on holidays
-and visitors from another world.
-The historian, Ann Rosser is an
-expert on the castle and its ghosts.
-The castle was given
-to the de Breos family...
-..by William de Londres
-of Ogmore Castle.
-It stayed within the family
-for several centuries...
-..until it came into the possession
-of the Duke of Beaufort.
-He sold the land and the
-castle itself to Swansea Council.
-You can walk around the castle and
-witness extraordinary experiences.
-It's as if the builders have
-woken something within the walls.
-People have witnessed
-The Norman castle
-has a bloody background...
-..due to the relationship
-between the Welsh and French.
-It's no wonder that rumours are rife
-about ghosts among the locals.
-There's been a recent sighting
-above the portcullis.
-We're above the murdering pit.
-The Normans would use
-this hole in the floor...
-..to pour hot sand over the enemies
-that entered the portcullis.
-In that time, the enemies
-would have been Welsh.
-They would have been killed as
-life was very cruel in those days.
-There has been
-a recent sighting here.
-a builder was working below...
-..and he felt someone touch his
-shoulders and shake him vigorously.
-I think we should leave!
-The castle is a labyrinth
-of dark and damp rooms.
-In the dungeons, there's talk
-of a famous Oystermouth ghost.
-This is a whipping post
-where the enemy would be punished.
-They would have to run around the
-post whilst they were being whipped.
-The whipping post is connected
-to the Ladi Wen or White Lady.
-There are many tales
-about the death of the Ladi Wen.
-One pair reported seeing her cry
-with whipping wounds on her back.
-Some believe that she wandered
-into the forest near the castle...
-..which coincides with the story of
-the family that spotted her there.
-She is most often seen wandering
-aimlessly around the castle.
-It's not just the Ladi Wen that's
-the cause for strange experiences.
-A worker was sitting by this table,
-writing notes for the builders.
-He experienced something strange
-when he felt a person approaching.
-He could not tell if the figure
-was male or female...
-..but it passed him
-and disappeared into the wall.
-There are many similar stories that
-have taken place in the castle...
-..where the figures of ghosts
-have disappeared into walls.
-You've told us about the
-spiritual history of the castle...
-..but do you believe in ghosts?
-I haven't had
-any ghostly experiences...
-..but having been here all morning,
-I suspect they do exist!
-On that note,
-I think it's best that we leave!
-No-one knows if the ghost stories
-are true and I didn't see anything.
-the castle is cold and eerie...
-..and you constantly feel
-as if you are being watched.
-We'll have to go there for a trip!
-It's time to chat with a person
-who's life has totally changed.
-Welcome to the programme,
-Take us back to 2012.
-I graduated university

-I met Igor at the beginning
-of my journey in China.
-Igor was the first face I saw
-when I arrived in the airport.
-He came to pick me up
-as my sister was busy working.
-Igor was my sister's friend.
-We spent a lot of time together,
-but Igor had to return to Europe.
-Igor comes from Slovenia.
-Igor didn't return until January and
-his work was constantly pushed back.
-Over the months, we developed
-some kind of online relationship.
-In the beginning,
-we would only talk once a week...
-..but later it developed
-to be every day.
-I was happy with my freedom...
-..and I didn't expect
-to fall in love.
-When he left, life became difficult
-and I discovered health problems.
-I had harmed myself practicing yoga
-and I found it difficult to teach.
-I didn't have a period
-for almost 12 months.
-I was trying to create a person that
-was completely different to me.
-Every obstacle seemed to be
-against me and I was very low.
-I felt different in India.
-I didn't recognize myself.
-In April, Igor proposed in Bali.
-Not long after the wedding,
-I found out I was pregnant.
