-Welcome to highlights of the 2016

-International Sheep Dog Trials.

0:00:250:00:31

-It's Wales's turn

-to welcome the event this year.

0:00:310:00:35

-Where better to hold it

-than in Meirionnydd.

0:00:350:00:38

-We are on Sandilands farm,

-near Tywyn.

0:00:420:00:45

-The last time the Trials were held

-here was 48 years ago in 1968.

0:00:460:00:52

-Which duo will be best at driving,

-shedding and penning this year?

0:00:520:00:58

-There are 60 dogs competing here...

0:01:000:01:02

-..from England, Ireland,

-Scotland and Wales.

0:01:030:01:05

-Every one will want to raise the

-flag for their country as a team...

0:01:060:01:09

-..and to win the individual title...

0:01:100:01:12

-..the best shepherd

-at the 2016 Trials.

0:01:130:01:16

-We're lucky to have this in Tywyn.

0:01:200:01:23

-It's attracted a lot of people here.

0:01:230:01:26

-We've come from Switzerland.

0:01:280:01:30

-We are working at home

-with our border collies and sheep.

0:01:310:01:35

-We always come as a family.

0:01:350:01:37

-We enjoy seeing people we haven't

-seen since the previous year.

0:01:370:01:41

-We meet up, chat, and see new dogs.

0:01:420:01:45

-Soon as I come onto a field, I can

-realize the feeling, the atmosphere.

0:01:450:01:51

-Welsh is really singing. This

-committee has done a marvellous job.

0:01:510:01:56

-We are home turf,

-so I hope Wales do well...

0:01:570:02:01

-..and show the standard of dogs

-we have here.

0:02:010:02:05

-Every country

-has held its national trials...

0:02:070:02:10

-..to choose a team of 15 shepherds.

0:02:110:02:14

-Watching the action and leading us

-through the competition...

0:02:150:02:19

-..are our commentators,

-Wyn Gruffydd and Meirion Owen.

0:02:190:02:24

-Thanks, Daloni.

0:02:240:02:25

-Twelve months ago, it was a big day

-for Aled Owen and Llangwm Cap.

0:02:250:02:28

-What are Wales's hopes this year?

0:02:290:02:30

-What are Wales's hopes this year?

-

-On paper, it's a very strong team.

0:02:300:02:33

-Three former captains,

-three have won the International...

0:02:330:02:36

-..a World Champion and four

-newcomers, so it's a good team.

0:02:370:02:40

-Here are

-the competition requirements.

0:02:410:02:44

-The best 15 shepherds will be

-selected from the 60 who start.

0:02:440:02:48

-For the first two days, there's one

-shepherd, one dog and five sheep.

0:02:490:02:53

-They have 15 minutes

-to complete the course.

0:02:530:02:56

-The dog will be sent

-around the field - the outrun.

0:02:560:03:00

-Then, the dog

-will need to lift the sheep...

0:03:000:03:02

-..and fetch them through the

-first gates back to the shepherd.

0:03:020:03:06

-The sheep will then be driven

-in a triangle through the gates...

0:03:060:03:10

-..and back to the shedding ring so

-that two sheep without collars...

0:03:100:03:14

-..can be separated from the others.

0:03:140:03:16

-The next step is to pen them

-before returning to the ring...

0:03:160:03:19

-..to single out one sheep

-with a collar.

0:03:200:03:22

-All this has to be completed

-in 15 minutes.

0:03:220:03:25

-There are four judges

-and 110 marks each to be awarded.

0:03:250:03:29

-So the maximum possible

-is 440 marks.

0:03:290:03:32

-That's the task ahead.

0:03:340:03:35

-With me now is Meirion Jones

-from Maesybont, Carmarthenshire.

0:03:350:03:39

-He's an experienced competitor...

0:03:390:03:42

-..and prepared fields for

-International and World trials.

0:03:420:03:46

-What sort of field is this one?

0:03:470:03:48

-It's excellent.

0:03:490:03:51

-It's a flat one.

0:03:510:03:53

-The national

-was held in a flat field.

0:03:530:03:55

-It'll suit us.

0:03:550:03:57

-You can choose different dogs for

-a flat field and one with a slope.

0:03:580:04:04

-The biggest challenge in any trial

-is the sheep.

0:04:040:04:07

-When they're good,

-everyone thinks they're good...

0:04:080:04:11

-..and then they do something

-right under your nose!

0:04:110:04:14

-You have to watch them

-from start to finish.

0:04:140:04:16

-Wales, with one type of sheep,

-could be at their best.

0:04:170:04:20

-There are some old faces

-and some new ones here, Meirion.

0:04:210:04:25

-There are four new faces -

-Sophie, Alwyn, Ross and Kelvin.

0:04:260:04:29

-They're representing Wales

-for the first time.

0:04:300:04:33

-There are experienced members

-to help them too.

0:04:330:04:36

-The captain is Medwyn Evans

-from Dolgellau.

0:04:360:04:38

-He was the best among the Welsh

-this year.

0:04:390:04:41

-The Welsh National Trials were held

-in Tyfos, Llandrillo, in July.

0:04:430:04:48

-The winner and therefore the one...

0:04:480:04:51

-..with the honour of

-captaining Wales was Medwyn Evans.

0:04:510:04:55

-Recently, Daloni went to meet him

-on The Nannau Estate near Dolgellau.

0:04:550:05:01

-This is the third time that Medwyn

-has captained the Wales team.

0:05:030:05:06

-He led them in 1998 and 2014.

0:05:060:05:11

-Many congratulations to you, Medwyn.

0:05:120:05:15

-The captain

-of the Wales sheepdog team.

0:05:150:05:17

-Thank you.

0:05:180:05:19

-What are your dogs called?

0:05:190:05:21

-What are your dogs called?

-

-Mac and Meg.

0:05:210:05:22

-So, Mac is competing against Meg.

0:05:230:05:26

-So, Mac is competing against Meg.

-

-Yes.

0:05:260:05:27

-Which one's the oldest?

0:05:270:05:28

-Which one's the oldest?

-

-Meg.

0:05:280:05:30

-Meg is five and a half

-and Mac is three and a half.

0:05:300:05:33

-I like for half my dogs

-to be taught in Welsh.

0:05:340:05:37

-If you have the same

-two commands...

0:05:370:05:40

-..it's difficult to send one off

-without the other following.

0:05:400:05:43

-It just happens

-that he's English and she's Welsh.

0:05:440:05:48

-I get great pleasure

-from working with them.

0:05:490:05:52

-Teaching a dog in the little field

-and seeing it develop.

0:05:520:05:55

-Taking it up the mountain.

0:05:550:05:57

-I prefer training them

-and seeing them develop.

0:05:570:06:01

-When I have the dogs,

-I will take them to sheepdog trials.

0:06:010:06:04

-This year might be your year,

-Medwyn.

0:06:050:06:08

-You might lift the cup

-on Sunday night.

0:06:080:06:11

-I'd like to think that.

0:06:110:06:13

-I don't expect to win

-but I'll do my best.

0:06:130:06:17

-We'll see how it goes.

0:06:180:06:19

-I am quite confident.

-Wales has a good team.

0:06:210:06:24

-Here's the Wales captain,

-Medwyn Evans.

0:06:280:06:31

-He'll want to do well

-on his home turf.

0:06:310:06:33

-It's a good outrun.

0:06:340:06:36

-She's there.

0:06:380:06:40

-A slow lift. Well done. Good start.

0:06:400:06:43

-That shows you how wide the field is

-in Sandilands.

0:06:450:06:48

-The drive. Everything's fine so far.

0:06:500:06:53

-He's lost a few marks here and there

-but he'll be pleased overall.

0:06:540:07:00

-Medwyn's run is promising.

0:07:030:07:06

-It's a great penning.

0:07:090:07:10

-It's a great penning.

-

-Faultless.

0:07:100:07:11

-The shedding can cause problems.

-You only need one awkward sheep.

0:07:130:07:17

-Medwyn's had a few problems.

0:07:180:07:21

-He'll lose some marks here.

0:07:230:07:25

-This is where he's lost most marks.

0:07:260:07:29

-Kevin Evans

-from Libanus near Brecon.

0:07:300:07:33

-He's had an excellent season.

0:07:330:07:35

-He must be one of the favourites.

0:07:350:07:37

-He's bound to be.

0:07:380:07:39

-A former winner,

-a former Wales captain.

0:07:390:07:42

-Kevin has lots of experience.

0:07:420:07:45

-He raises his game

-for these big occasions.

0:07:450:07:48

-The wind

-may be making things a bit tougher.

0:07:510:07:55

-It's a good drive.

0:07:560:07:58

-This is where Kevin could win it.

0:07:580:08:00

-It's a very tight turn.

0:08:000:08:03

-He's hardly lost any marks.

0:08:030:08:05

-He only just scraped into the team.

0:08:070:08:11

-It's a very young dog.

0:08:110:08:13

-They competed at a trials

-last winter.

0:08:130:08:16

-The penning looks good.

0:08:190:08:23

-This is a superb run.

0:08:250:08:27

-It'll be hard to beat, I think.

0:08:270:08:29

-The final part.

0:08:300:08:32

-Is it there?

0:08:320:08:34

-No. Yes. Go in.

0:08:340:08:36

-Well done.

0:08:370:08:38

-Well done.

-

-You need some luck sometimes.

0:08:380:08:40

-You make your own luck.

0:08:400:08:41

-This is Dr Angie Driscoll

-with Kinloch Pippi.

0:08:430:08:46

-She was a late replacement.

0:08:460:08:48

-One of Richard Millichap's dogs,

-Don, died a few days ago.

0:08:490:08:53

-She's lost a few marks on the drive

-but the penning is very good.

0:08:540:08:59

-Well done.

0:09:010:09:02

-Patience is what's required.

0:09:030:09:05

-The shedding to come.

0:09:090:09:11

-Time and patience.

0:09:120:09:13

-You can hear the wind

-in the background.

0:09:150:09:17

-We're by the sea

-on land reclaimed from the dunes.

0:09:170:09:21

-Sandilands is the name of the farm.

0:09:210:09:23

-Well done again. Good finish.

0:09:230:09:25

-Ross Games,

-a young 25-year-old shepherd.

0:09:280:09:31

-It's a good outrun by this dog too.

0:09:320:09:34

-He's there. Well done.

0:09:360:09:38

-A slow lift.

0:09:380:09:40

-We can see more of the field

-than Ross on his pulpit.

0:09:400:09:45

-Come in.

0:09:500:09:52

-A very good shedding.

0:09:530:09:54

-A few problems but not many.

0:09:590:10:02

-Ooh!

0:10:030:10:04

-Marks will be lost there.

0:10:050:10:06

-I said it earlier -

-there's always one.

0:10:070:10:09

-He's looked at his watch.

-There's plenty of time left.

0:10:110:10:15

-Go in.

0:10:150:10:16

-Well done. It's a good finish.

-He'll be pleased with the run.

0:10:160:10:20

-He'll receive high marks.

-The Welsh are doing well so far.

0:10:200:10:24

-That's it for now.

0:10:240:10:26

-Join us after the break...

0:10:260:10:28

-..to see how the Welsh competitors

-fare in the first two days.

0:10:280:10:32

-See you in a minute!

-Welcome back to the

-2016 International Sheep Dog Trials.

0:10:460:10:50

-It's being held at Sandilands Farm,

-Tywyn, Meirionnydd.

0:10:500:10:53

-In addition to the competition...

0:10:530:10:56

-..there are all kinds of stands

-and a rural fair.

0:10:560:10:59

-We'll see more of that shortly.

0:10:590:11:02

-For now back to our commentators,

-Meirion Owen and Wyn Gruffydd.

0:11:020:11:06

-This is Kevin Evans with Kemi Ross,

-his most experienced dog, Meirion.

0:11:070:11:11

-Certainly, he's experienced.

-It's a good outrun.

0:11:110:11:16

-He's reached the whistle.

0:11:210:11:24

-He's picked up well there.

0:11:260:11:28

-Let's see the drive.

0:11:280:11:29

-The drive is good, not as good as

-Preseli Ci, but still good.

0:11:290:11:33

-Through the middle.

0:11:330:11:34

-He's working hard here,

-waiting for a chance.

0:11:400:11:44

-Kevin brings the sheep back towards

-the middle of the ring.

0:11:460:11:50

-They need some patience

-to create the gap.

0:11:500:11:53

-That'll be some marks gone,

-the dog has turned.

0:11:530:11:55

-It's turned to the three

-instead of the two.

0:11:560:11:59

-That's Alan Lloyd Jones

-from Cwmtirmynach.

0:12:020:12:05

-I expect these sheep

-will suit Alan.

0:12:050:12:08

-It's clear to see this dog works

-with the same sheep day-in-day-out.

0:12:080:12:13

-You can see the heat haze here

-but Alan is still wearing his coat.

0:12:160:12:20

-Very good.

0:12:210:12:22

-That's excellent,

-clean work from Alan.

0:12:230:12:25

-It's the pen again.

-He's waiting for his chance.

0:12:270:12:31

-They'll go in.

0:12:320:12:33

-There have been good elements here.

0:12:350:12:38

-This is Kelvin Broad, we saw his

-wife, Angie Driscoll already.

0:12:400:12:43

-He's a Kiwi, originally.

0:12:440:12:45

-He's a full-time teacher.

0:12:470:12:49

-He's there. It's a good start.

0:12:500:12:53

-Two good elements.

0:12:540:12:55

-This element is where you

-separate the wheat from the chaff.

0:12:560:13:00

-Yes, you need a little luck

-in the ring.

0:13:010:13:03

-They're in.

0:13:030:13:04

-Very good.

0:13:050:13:06

-He didn't have much trouble there.

0:13:060:13:08

-This is a good spot here.

0:13:080:13:10

-Wait.

0:13:110:13:12

-Kelvin is building a strong run.

0:13:140:13:16

-He's penned them well.

0:13:180:13:20

-Medwyn Evans is back with Mac.

0:13:230:13:25

-I imagine the instructions

-will be in English.

0:13:250:13:28

-That's good shedding.

0:13:290:13:30

-That sheep has turned.

-It's quite a stubborn sheep.

0:13:340:13:37

-The dog is positioned well.

0:13:380:13:39

-That's the trick.

0:13:410:13:42

-He made that look easy.

0:13:490:13:51

-Now then, Meg and Mac, will you be

-through with both tomorrow?

0:13:550:14:01

-I have a feeling that I will.

0:14:010:14:03

-As the Welsh captain, how many more

-of you will compete tomorrow?

0:14:030:14:09

-I think there could be

-seven or eight of us.

0:14:090:14:12

-They say that training and running

-sheepdogs is in the blood.

0:14:150:14:20

-That's the exact question

-I can ask these two gentlemen.

0:14:200:14:23

-Glyn and Gethin Jones...

0:14:230:14:25

-..of Cwm Y Geifr Farm, Llanarmon,

-Dyffryn Ceiriog.

0:14:250:14:29

-You've both been competing.

0:14:290:14:32

-Yes, yes.

0:14:320:14:33

-Am I right, is it in the blood,

-Glyn?

0:14:330:14:36

-It's a part of our work at home.

0:14:370:14:39

-We farm sheep.

0:14:390:14:41

-We need these dogs

-to do the work at home.

0:14:410:14:44

-The two things go hand in hand.

0:14:440:14:47

-Glyn, you inspired your son, Gethin.

0:14:470:14:51

-Is that true?

0:14:510:14:52

-Yes, yes it is.

0:14:530:14:54

-I used to come with Dad

-when I was much younger.

0:14:540:14:57

-I used to see him compete

-and wanted to do it myself.

0:14:570:15:02

-Dad has given me a lot of help

-over the years.

0:15:030:15:06

-He's shown me how to teach dogs...

0:15:060:15:09

-..and how to deal with the pressure

-at these big events.

0:15:090:15:12

-Are you passing the craft on

-to these two little ladies?

0:15:130:15:17

-Well, I hope so.

0:15:180:15:19

-Hello, what's your name?

0:15:190:15:20

-Annest.

0:15:210:15:21

-Annest.

-

-Who are you?

0:15:210:15:22

-Glesni.

0:15:220:15:23

-Is this Dad and Taid?

0:15:240:15:25

-Do you enjoy being with sheepdogs?

0:15:250:15:29

-Yes, I like dogs.

0:15:290:15:31

-Do you? What do you have there?

0:15:310:15:33

-It's a whistle.

0:15:330:15:35

-That looks like

-a very complicated whistle.

0:15:360:15:38

-Can you work it?

0:15:400:15:41

-Show me how you whistle.

0:15:410:15:44

-WHISTLE

0:15:440:15:45

-Very good.

0:15:460:15:47

-Best wishes to you all and

-particularly, the little girls.

0:15:470:15:51

-Thanks for the chat, ladies.

0:15:510:15:54

-Bye!

0:15:540:15:55

-Here's Glyn with Roy.

0:15:580:16:00

-There's no fence or hedge

-to follow up.

0:16:020:16:05

-The dog has arrived but lost

-a few marks from the orders.

0:16:060:16:09

-Roy's moved off line a little.

0:16:100:16:14

-They'll have lost some marks.

0:16:150:16:16

-If he lost on the fetch and

-the drive, he's making it up here.

0:16:170:16:20

-That's good work.

0:16:210:16:22

-That's good work.

-

-Very good.

0:16:220:16:23

-The sheep and dog are

-in a good place.

0:16:240:16:27

-He needs to close the gate.

0:16:270:16:29

-He's penned well.

0:16:290:16:30

-Gethin will have had a chance

-to see where his father struggled.

0:16:320:16:36

-He needs to be careful here.

-Come on, Maddie.

0:16:360:16:39

-He's going to lose some here.

0:16:400:16:42

-One, two, three. One in.

-That will be a lot of marks.

0:16:430:16:46

-Things aren't improving for Gethin.

0:16:490:16:51

-The pass is a little bit fast.

0:16:530:16:55

-Like his father, Gethin lost marks

-at the same elements.

0:16:580:17:01

-The fetch and the drive.

0:17:010:17:03

-We're waiting for them to turn in.

0:17:050:17:07

-The shedding

-is once again faultless.

0:17:090:17:11

-Lie down. Lie down!

0:17:110:17:13

-He needs to be patient.

0:17:130:17:15

-Lie down.

0:17:170:17:18

-They're walking in.

0:17:180:17:20

-A Welshman shows yet again

-how to pen these sheep.

0:17:210:17:24

-Wales, England, Scotland and Ireland

-compete in the trials.

0:17:260:17:30

-I'm joined by the captain

-of the English team, Jed Watson.

0:17:310:17:35

-Welcome to Meirionnydd, Jed.

0:17:360:17:37

-Welcome to Meirionnydd, Jed.

-

-Thank you very much.

0:17:370:17:38

-Jed, you're the captain of

-the English team, congratulations.

0:17:390:17:44

-You used to represent Wales.

0:17:450:17:47

-Correct, yes.

-I've represented Wales, yes.

0:17:470:17:50

-How's that happened?

0:17:500:17:51

-It's just where I was located

-at the time, I was in Brecon.

0:17:520:17:55

-In fact, you have a Welsh dog.

0:17:550:17:58

-It's hard to get away from them,

-isn't it?

0:17:580:18:01

-Here he is.

-The dog is called Gwydr Zac.

0:18:010:18:05

-He was sold to Jed Watson, the

-English team captain by this man...

0:18:050:18:11

-..Gerald Lewis from Llangadog.

0:18:110:18:13

-Beautiful dog, Gerald.

0:18:130:18:15

-A very attractive dog.

0:18:150:18:17

-How are you going to feel

-when the results come out?

0:18:170:18:21

-Who are you going to support?

0:18:210:18:22

-Who are you going to support?

-

-The best dog!

0:18:220:18:23

-Has Jed got the best dog?

0:18:250:18:27

-To become captain of England

-he has done very, very well...

0:18:270:18:30

-..and obviously deserves

-his position.

0:18:310:18:33

-If he deserves his position,

-he might be the best out there.

0:18:330:18:36

-If he is the best,

-I wish him all the best.

0:18:360:18:39

-He's got to get by

-a lot of good Welshmen.

0:18:390:18:41

-I wish you all the best as well,

-Jed. Good luck.

0:18:410:18:44

-Good luck to the dog too.

0:18:440:18:46

-Thanks very much.

0:18:470:18:48

-Say it again, "Diolch"!

0:18:480:18:48

-Say it again, "Diolch"!

-

-Diolch.

0:18:480:18:50

-Very good.

0:18:500:18:51

-These sheep have minds of their own.

0:18:540:18:56

-Jed is having a bit of trouble here.

0:18:570:18:59

-You have to keep these sheep

-together in one pack.

0:19:020:19:05

-This hasn't been an easy run for

-the man who once represented Wales.

0:19:090:19:15

-Wait.

0:19:170:19:18

-That's better.

0:19:210:19:23

-We've just seen the English captain

-at it.

0:19:230:19:27

-It's a pleasure to speak to the

-Irish and Scottish captains.

0:19:270:19:31

-James McLaughlin and Neil Gillon.

0:19:310:19:33

-Have you had a lovely Welsh welcome,

-James?

0:19:330:19:36

-Yes, we have, yeah.

-It's been very good, yeah.

0:19:360:19:39

-The Irish team this year,

-a strong team.

0:19:390:19:42

-Good team, yeah. Good youth team.

0:19:420:19:44

-Done really well, I think, hopefully

-we'll see the rest of the results...

0:19:450:19:49

-..but I think we've done well.

0:19:500:19:51

-How difficult is it to get a team...

0:19:510:19:53

-..to travel all the way down

-from Scotland.

0:19:540:19:56

-It's no problem at all. Everybody

-loves to represent their country.

0:19:560:20:00

-It's an honour.

0:20:000:20:02

-Is the standard becoming

-higher and higher every year?

0:20:020:20:05

-Aye, definitely. Definitely.

0:20:050:20:07

-Thank you for coming down

-to Tywyn, Meirionnydd.

0:20:080:20:11

-Thank you.

0:20:110:20:12

-James says that leading his country

-is the highlight of his career.

0:20:140:20:18

-Captains go last...

0:20:180:20:19

-..so will know roughly what they

-need to go through.

0:20:190:20:22

-We're in the shedding ring

-looking to shed a single.

0:20:250:20:29

-She's in.

0:20:320:20:33

-She's in.

-

-Was that enough?

0:20:330:20:34

-The Scottish captain climbs up

-and Sweep outruns on the left.

0:20:360:20:39

-Only a few have chosen

-the left side today.

0:20:400:20:42

-Neil has had a hard time

-from these sheep.

0:20:450:20:47

-The Welsh team have shown

-how to deal with these sheep.

0:20:480:20:51

-The other competitors have struggled

-with these Welsh sheep.

0:20:520:20:55

-They're in in the end.

0:20:560:20:58

-There are four judges at the

-International Sheepdog Trials.

0:21:000:21:04

-One of them is this gentleman,

-Wyn Edwards.

0:21:040:21:07

-Wyn, how's it going?

0:21:070:21:09

-It's going well at the moment.

0:21:090:21:11

-It looks promising for Wales.

0:21:110:21:13

-The ones who have run already

-did well.

0:21:130:21:15

-I would say

-that they're doing alright.

0:21:160:21:19

-Four of you

-examine every competitor in detail.

0:21:200:21:23

-There are 60 dogs.

0:21:240:21:25

-We look at every run in detail.

0:21:250:21:28

-Are you happy with the standard?

0:21:280:21:29

-Are you happy with the standard?

-

-The standard is incredible.

0:21:290:21:31

-They've been very successful trials.

0:21:320:21:34

-They've been very successful trials.

-

-Do you still compete?

0:21:340:21:36

-Yes, I still do quite a bit.

0:21:360:21:38

-I try to keep in touch with them

-and keep up with the young lads.

0:21:380:21:42

-You're one of the official judges.

0:21:420:21:45

-There are tens if not hundreds

-of unofficial judges here too.

0:21:450:21:49

-That's certain.

0:21:490:21:51

-The experts are on the stands!

0:21:520:21:54

-They've all got their own opinions

-but ours count today!

0:21:550:21:58

-Thanks for the chat, Wyn.

0:21:580:22:00

-Hopefully,

-you'll have a good three days.

0:22:000:22:03

-Thanks, it looks good.

0:22:030:22:05

-Join us after the break to see who

-from Wales reached the final round.

-Welcome back to the 2016

-International Sheep Dog Trials...

0:22:250:22:29

-..held here in Tywyn, Meirionnydd.

0:22:290:22:32

-Sixty competitors began the event.

0:22:320:22:35

-Now, only 15 remain,

-and it's hotting up.

0:22:350:22:39

-Of those, seven are from Wales,

-three are from Ireland...

0:22:400:22:43

-..two from Scotland

-and three from England.

0:22:440:22:46

-As you can imagine for the final...

0:22:460:22:48

-..the requirements have changed

-and the challenge has increased.

0:22:490:22:54

-Yes, Alun, there are more obstacles

-and more sheep as well.

0:22:540:22:58

-One shepherd, one dog, but 20 sheep,

-five of which have collars.

0:22:580:23:02

-The outrun, lift and fetch

-takes place twice...

0:23:030:23:07

-..picking up ten sheep each time.

0:23:070:23:10

-All 20 are driven through the gates

-towards the shedding ring.

0:23:100:23:14

-This time, the 15 without collars

-have to be shed...

0:23:140:23:18

-..and the five with collars

-must be penned.

0:23:180:23:21

-The course is more complicated...

0:23:220:23:24

-..but there's more time available,

-as well as more marks.

0:23:240:23:28

-Each shepherd has 30 minutes,

-with 680 possible marks.

0:23:290:23:32

-Kevin Evans was the best shepherd

-over the first two days.

0:23:340:23:38

-Eight o'clock in the morning,

-and the swallows are out.

0:23:390:23:43

-He gathers the second pack of sheep.

0:23:470:23:50

-He's had a good start.

0:23:500:23:51

-Bird's Rock in the distance,

-and no sign of rain today.

0:23:530:23:56

-The sheep walk into the ring

-without a hitch.

0:23:580:24:00

-He starts the drive.

0:24:030:24:04

-He's working well,

-the sheep all moving together.

0:24:080:24:12

-A tight turn is required.

0:24:130:24:15

-Kevin is a master at his work.

0:24:190:24:21

-The sun's in our faces this morning.

0:24:230:24:27

-But Kevin has his back to the sun,

-and can see the sheep with collars.

0:24:270:24:33

-Kevin isn't being blinded.

0:24:350:24:37

-Slowly towards the pen.

0:24:390:24:41

-Kevin set the standard

-on day one...

0:24:430:24:45

-..and does so again

-in the main championship.

0:24:450:24:48

-Looking well, do you think?

0:24:480:24:50

-Looking well, do you think?

-

-Good so far.

0:24:500:24:51

-But there's another 14 good handlers

-to come, so we'll see what happens.

0:24:510:24:55

-Two wrongs don't make a right,

-but what about two Bens?

0:24:560:25:00

-But will one Ben do

-what the other Ben wants?

0:25:000:25:03

-Ben is having a few problems.

0:25:040:25:06

-He did gather both packs of sheep...

0:25:110:25:13

-..but the dog crossed

-on the second fetch.

0:25:140:25:17

-Ben Smith has already

-dropped a few marks.

0:25:180:25:20

-Kevin Evans' run

-is looking better and better.

0:25:260:25:29

-Ross and Roy, one of seven Welsh

-entrants in the main championship.

0:25:320:25:37

-An excellent run.

0:25:390:25:42

-The dog needs to drop back,

-and responds immediately.

0:25:440:25:47

-The whistle's out.

0:25:480:25:50

-It's a peaceful day,

-with no hint of a breeze.

0:25:500:25:53

-A sublime understanding

-between handler and dog.

0:25:530:25:57

-He comes straight down the middle.

0:25:590:26:01

-He gathers all the sheep,

-ready for the drive.

0:26:050:26:09

-I should explain

-that what you are seeing...

0:26:110:26:14

-..are the foundations

-of old military buildings.

0:26:140:26:17

-..not remnants

-of thistles or nettles.

0:26:170:26:20

-He needs to be careful.

0:26:230:26:25

-That's a few marks dropped there.

0:26:260:26:28

-The first mistake.

0:26:280:26:29

-Careful!

0:26:350:26:36

-There's one sheep, yes,

-there she is again.

0:26:370:26:40

-She won't get far.

0:26:400:26:42

-A mark or two dropped.

0:26:420:26:44

-Roy is working well.

0:26:440:26:45

-You've competed in the World.

0:26:490:26:51

-In your first International,

-you're straight into the final.

0:26:510:26:54

-How did it go?

0:26:540:26:55

-How did it go?

-

-Very happy.

0:26:550:26:56

-Really happy

-with the qualifying run.

0:26:570:26:59

-Overall, quite a good run

-in the final, so very happy.

0:26:590:27:03

-The dogs go out to the left

-to pick up the first pack.

0:27:030:27:06

-This is Scotland's Mosse Magnusson.

0:27:070:27:09

-He's had several problems.

0:27:130:27:15

-The dog crossed

-when fetching the second pack.

0:27:150:27:18

-It hasn't been his best day...

0:27:190:27:21

-..but he's in the championship.

0:27:220:27:25

-He finishes.

0:27:270:27:28

-Jock was a bit keen

-right from the off.

0:27:320:27:34

-Left is the way to go.

0:27:340:27:36

-He's now moving comfortably.

0:27:390:27:42

-He's had quite a few problems...

0:27:440:27:46

-..but he finishes, oh...

0:27:470:27:49

-..well done.

0:27:490:27:50

-You need eyes everywhere to do this.

0:27:520:27:55

-These Welsh sheep are different

-to last year's Scottish sheep.

0:27:580:28:02

-They're nimble, like squirrels.

0:28:020:28:04

-They're nimble, like squirrels.

-

-Very good!

0:28:040:28:05

-Dylan, as chair of the event...

0:28:090:28:10

-..you must be proud

-of how it has turned out.

0:28:110:28:13

-Yes, I'm extremely happy.

0:28:130:28:16

-Everything's running like clockwork.

0:28:160:28:19

-Everyone's happy,

-the sheep are working well.

0:28:190:28:23

-Everyone gets the same chance.

0:28:230:28:25

-We couldn't have dreamt

-of better weather.

0:28:260:28:28

-Congratulations. People will

-remember Tywyn for years to come.

0:28:290:28:33

-Thank you very much.

0:28:330:28:34

-Thank you very much.

-

-Thank you.

0:28:340:28:35

-The sheepdog trials have developed

-into a day out for the whole family.

0:28:360:28:42

-There's lots to do here

-and lots of things to see.

0:28:420:28:47

-Preparing for such a big event

-requires lots of hard work.

0:29:180:29:22

-Here are two people

-who have worked day and night...

0:29:220:29:26

-..event president Geraint Owen...

0:29:260:29:28

-..and Eirian Morgan,

-the society's Wales president.

0:29:280:29:32

-I have to organize a field

-on behalf of the society.

0:29:330:29:36

-I must say that I was given

-a very warm welcome here in Tywyn.

0:29:360:29:41

-We've had an exceptional event

-among Tywyn's majestic scenery.

0:29:410:29:46

-I'm delighted that we chose Tywyn.

0:29:460:29:49

-I'm sure you're happy

-to hear that, Geraint.

0:29:490:29:52

-We've been very lucky.

-The weather has been on our side.

0:29:520:29:56

-The local people

-have been behind it all the way.

0:29:560:29:59

-It's been a big help

-to have everyone on board.

0:30:000:30:03

-As I understand it,

-if Wales does win...

0:30:030:30:06

-..you as president get the honour

-of picking up the victory shield.

0:30:060:30:11

-The problem is,

-I'll have to buy the round as well!

0:30:110:30:15

-But it'll be worth it if Wales wins.

0:30:150:30:16

-But it'll be worth it if Wales wins.

-

-It will.

0:30:160:30:18

-His pockets are deep enough,

-but his arms are a bit short.

0:30:200:30:23

-Kemi Ross and Kevin Evans,

-Kevin out for the second time.

0:30:240:30:28

-I suspect he's currently leading

-with Preseli Ci.

0:30:280:30:32

-He's running nicely.

0:30:340:30:36

-The lift.

0:30:370:30:38

-He had a few problems

-with the second pack.

0:30:390:30:42

-This is good driving...

0:30:430:30:44

-..between the gates.

0:30:450:30:46

-The dog is round immediately.

0:30:470:30:49

-The sun may be on his back,

-but Kevin isn't feeling the heat.

0:30:520:30:56

-This is a good second run

-by the Welshman from Libanus.

0:30:560:30:59

-He successfully completes

-his second run.

0:31:000:31:04

-You could be in the running

-for first and second.

0:31:040:31:08

-I'm not sure about that.

-There's a long day left yet.

0:31:080:31:10

-I've got two completed runs

-so we'll see what the judges think.

0:31:110:31:14

-Alan Jones, Defaidty, Cwmtirmynach.

0:31:150:31:18

-It's a bit more windy in Bala

-than it is at Sandilands today.

0:31:180:31:22

-Now then, where's he going?

0:31:230:31:24

-Now then, where's he going?

-

-He overruns slightly.

0:31:240:31:26

-It's all back under control now.

0:31:300:31:32

-Good driving, Wyn.

0:31:320:31:34

-Across.

0:31:360:31:37

-The best driving we've seen today.

0:31:390:31:41

-Through the gates again.

0:31:410:31:43

-He needs one more to make 15,

-but they split like snooker balls.

0:31:460:31:51

-He manages it eventually.

0:31:510:31:53

-The penning.

0:31:560:31:57

-They're there.

0:31:580:31:59

-Stand.

0:32:010:32:02

-Slowly.

0:32:030:32:04

-They're in. Well done, Alan.

0:32:050:32:07

-You've been second

-in the International twice.

0:32:080:32:11

-Have you done enough

-to win this year?

0:32:110:32:14

-No, I don't think so.

0:32:140:32:15

-I don't know. You can't tell.

0:32:160:32:17

-There have been some great runs.

0:32:180:32:20

-The last one out

-could easily win it.

0:32:200:32:22

-Some good ones went out before me,

-and there are good ones to come.

0:32:220:32:27

-They include the world champion,

-the Scot Michael Shearer.

0:32:280:32:32

-What an apt name for a shepherd.

0:32:320:32:35

-He must be careful.

0:32:350:32:36

-They're splitting.

0:32:370:32:38

-That's a chunk of marks gone there.

0:32:400:32:43

-Michael will remember

-last year's Scottish Blackfaces...

0:32:430:32:47

-..as being easier to handle

-than these sheep.

0:32:470:32:50

-It'll be difficult

-to get this run back.

0:32:500:32:52

-He's preparing for the drive.

0:32:540:32:56

-Can Michael finish?

0:33:000:33:01

-It's getting harder.

0:33:030:33:04

-But he makes it.

0:33:060:33:07

-This is Welsh captain Medwyn Evans'

-first run in the final...

0:33:090:33:15

-..but not with Mac, the dog with

-which he won the Welsh championship.

0:33:150:33:20

-He's going back.

0:33:220:33:23

-There are two dogs here now.

0:33:250:33:27

-What's happened?

0:33:270:33:28

-What's happened?

-

-The stewards' dogs moved.

0:33:280:33:30

-Hopefully, they didn't put him off.

0:33:300:33:32

-All seems well.

0:33:320:33:33

-Medwyn sees that it's all over

-for him, and concedes.

0:33:370:33:40

-He'll hope for better luck

-with Mac later.

0:33:410:33:43

-Englishman Ricky Hutchinson is back,

-this time with Sweep.

0:33:450:33:49

-We saw him with Jock earlier.

0:33:490:33:51

-He's got there, but he dropped

-quite a few points on the outrun.

0:33:520:33:56

-He overran there.

0:33:570:33:58

-Ricky's run is going

-from bad to worse.

0:34:010:34:04

-It's not his day today.

0:34:050:34:06

-It's not his day today.

-

-Time runs out for Ricky Hutchinson.

0:34:060:34:09

-With over three-quarters

-of the field having run...

0:34:100:34:13

-..join me after the break

-to see who'll be taking this home.

-Welcome back.

0:34:270:34:29

-Ten of the 15 finalists have run.

0:34:290:34:32

-Let's see how things stand.

0:34:320:34:35

-This is how we see it, Meinir.

0:34:360:34:38

-There are certainly two Welshmen

-near the top.

0:34:380:34:41

-Kevin Evans and Preseli Ci,

-and Ross Games with Roy.

0:34:410:34:46

-What about Alan Jones, Meirion?

0:34:460:34:47

-What about Alan Jones, Meirion?

-

-Alan and Spot had a good run.

0:34:470:34:49

-But only the four judges

-in the box know who's leading.

0:34:490:34:53

-How close to the top

-can Ireland's Martin Feeney come?

0:34:550:34:58

-His dog is Jack,

-and his roots are in Wales.

0:34:580:35:02

-He's had problems with crossing

-while bringing the dog back.

0:35:030:35:07

-Many marks have gone.

0:35:070:35:08

-Many marks have gone.

-

-Martin is rushing back and forth.

0:35:080:35:11

-The bell explains why.

0:35:130:35:14

-The most important element today

-is that you're running a Welsh dog.

0:35:150:35:19

-Yes, Jack here came

-from down around Cardiff.

0:35:200:35:23

-He was bred down there

-by David Howells.

0:35:230:35:26

-He's off Robert Ellis' Mirk,

-so he's completely Welsh-bred.

0:35:260:35:30

-I think he enjoys Wales.

0:35:310:35:32

-He's been in the Supreme twice,

-once in Cardiff and once here.

0:35:320:35:36

-He still remembers his roots!

0:35:360:35:38

-This man's roots

-are in New Zealand...

0:35:400:35:42

-..via Canada and Scotland,

-and now Carmarthenshire.

0:35:430:35:46

-He's got there, and now the lift.

0:35:470:35:49

-A pig's trot, as they say.

0:35:530:35:54

-Moving leisurely.

0:35:550:35:56

-This dog has gone out

-with only one command.

0:35:570:36:00

-A fine start,

-one of the best outruns yet.

0:36:000:36:03

-No mean feat. It's a long field.

0:36:030:36:06

-Oh!

0:36:100:36:11

-Another one.

0:36:110:36:12

-The clock has beaten the last three.

0:36:140:36:16

-How will James McCloskey get on?

0:36:170:36:20

-That's a wide path, Meirion.

0:36:220:36:24

-That's a wide path, Meirion.

-

-He lost a bit there, overrunning.

0:36:240:36:26

-The dog is back in position now.

0:36:290:36:32

-You don't want them

-to start grazing.

0:36:330:36:35

-That's a good pass,

-he keeps going.

0:36:360:36:39

-He'll have to step on it.

0:36:410:36:42

-Slowly.

0:36:470:36:48

-Oh, he's lost it.

0:36:500:36:52

-Oh, he's lost it.

-

-Time is passing, Wyn.

0:36:520:36:53

-Shedding one by one takes time.

0:36:540:36:56

-Better to shed four or five at once.

0:36:570:36:59

-But when they don't come,

-you have to accept it.

0:36:590:37:02

-I was afraid he'd run out of time.

0:37:030:37:06

-In, over, under and out.

0:37:070:37:11

-It's been years since I knitted.

0:37:110:37:13

-You can probably tell from the mess

-I'm making with these needles!

0:37:140:37:18

-But this woman has been busy

-knitting for many months.

0:37:180:37:22

-Pat Griffiths, you've been so busy

-with these knitting needles.

0:37:220:37:26

-Tell me what you've been doing.

0:37:270:37:29

-It all started last year...

0:37:290:37:31

-..when we found out that

-the sheep dog trials were coming.

0:37:310:37:34

-And this is all in Llwyngwril?

0:37:340:37:37

-And this is all in Llwyngwril?

-

-All in Llwyngwril.

0:37:370:37:38

-We decided that we were going

-to advertise the show.

0:37:380:37:42

-The best way was to make things

-pertinent to what was happening.

0:37:420:37:46

-Sheepdogs, sheep, shepherds.

0:37:460:37:49

-Tell me a bit about the characters

-that we can see in the village.

0:37:490:37:53

-We have an English shepherd,

-we have a Welsh shepherd...

0:37:530:37:57

-..we have a Scottish shepherd

-and we have an Irish shepherd.

0:37:570:38:01

-All with their sheepdogs

-and their sheep next to them.

0:38:010:38:05

-This is raising money

-for the Ganolfan.

0:38:060:38:08

-For Y Ganolfan in Llwyngwril,

-our community centre.

0:38:090:38:12

-Pat, I've never seen

-anything like it. Congratulations.

0:38:120:38:16

-Any tips for me with the knitting?

0:38:170:38:18

-Any tips for me with the knitting?

-

-Keep at it a bit longer!

0:38:180:38:19

-And speak to your mother!

0:38:200:38:22

-My mother used to teach sewing!

0:38:220:38:25

-Welsh captain Medwyn Evans

-won't want to drop anything...

0:38:260:38:30

-..during this run with Mac.

0:38:300:38:32

-He starts well,

-with a good line for the outrun.

0:38:340:38:36

-What a view. Bird's Rock.

0:38:370:38:39

-I'm looking at Mac, Wyn!

0:38:400:38:42

-The Welsh hillsides in the distance.

0:38:430:38:45

-This field is flat, but there are

-still heights to be scaled.

0:38:450:38:49

-Oh, Medwyn, Medwyn! You've lost it.

-It was going so well.

0:38:490:38:53

-Medwyn pens, but a better drive

-would have put him up there...

0:38:530:38:57

-..and the crowd knows it.

0:38:580:39:00

-The last to run is James McLaughlin

-with Dan.

0:39:020:39:06

-He's a good dog.

0:39:090:39:11

-I think Kevin Evans will be watching

-between his fingers.

0:39:130:39:16

-He's done the outrun.

-It's a good start.

0:39:160:39:20

-He's done the lift.

0:39:200:39:22

-There are nine sheep here.

0:39:280:39:29

-One, two...

0:39:290:39:31

-There's one missing.

0:39:310:39:32

-There's one missing.

-

-Has someone realized?

0:39:320:39:34

-I think someone has.

0:39:340:39:36

-This is unusual.

0:39:390:39:41

-Let's see.

0:39:420:39:43

-Yes, they have realized.

0:39:430:39:46

-What are the options?

0:39:470:39:48

-I think they have two options.

0:39:480:39:51

-Give him a second run or bring

-a sheep out to join the flock.

0:39:510:39:57

-One more sheep to make it ten.

0:39:580:39:59

-One more sheep to make it ten.

-

-The crowd are mulling things over.

0:39:590:40:02

-What's going to happen?

-What will they do?

0:40:030:40:05

-Common sense has prevailed.

0:40:080:40:10

-They've added a sheep

-and allowed James to continue.

0:40:100:40:13

-It's going well.

0:40:160:40:17

-He's had to start again.

0:40:190:40:21

-That must be playing on his mind.

0:40:220:40:25

-We can only praise him.

0:40:250:40:27

-What drama.

0:40:290:40:30

-Its star is James McLaughlin.

0:40:310:40:33

-What an exciting one to watch!

0:40:330:40:36

-How were you feeling in there?

0:40:370:40:38

-How were you feeling in there?

-

-Pretty tense.

0:40:380:40:40

-Time was running out fast.

0:40:400:40:43

-One bugger just wouldn't come out

-from the middle.

0:40:430:40:47

-I'm delighted to finish.

0:40:490:40:51

-I had 58 seconds

-when I went to that pen.

0:40:510:40:54

-What pressure!

0:40:540:40:55

-What pressure!

-

-Under serious pressure.

0:40:550:40:56

-I worked tremendous at the pen.

0:40:570:40:59

-To pen sheep in 58 seconds

-is quite tremendous.

0:40:590:41:02

-That one ewe was coming back

-to haunt you until the bitter end!

0:41:030:41:06

-I never saw her. I was focused

-on what happened at the pen.

0:41:060:41:10

-I don't know where she was.

0:41:100:41:12

-I thought I put her far enough away

-and I hadn't time to do any more.

0:41:120:41:17

-I'm glad she kept her distance.

0:41:170:41:19

-How did the stop affect you?

0:41:200:41:22

-How did the stop affect you?

-

-A little bit. Just a little bit.

0:41:220:41:24

-I was happy

-the dog stayed where he was.

0:41:240:41:27

-He knew he wasn't finished. He

-stayed in the middle of the field.

0:41:270:41:30

-I was happy once he stayed there.

0:41:310:41:33

-If he came back to my foot,

-he'd think he was finished.

0:41:330:41:36

-I was happy I got him down

-and he stayed there.

0:41:360:41:39

-A faithful dog until the bitter end.

0:41:390:41:40

-A faithful dog until the bitter end.

-

-Yes. He's done me really proud.

0:41:400:41:42

-He's won me two nationals

-and One Man And His Dog.

0:41:430:41:46

-He's a tremendous dog.

0:41:460:41:48

-Being captain of the Irish team,

-last to run today...

0:41:480:41:52

-..do you think you've done enough?

0:41:520:41:54

-..do you think you've done enough?

-

-It's taken enough out of me anyhow!

0:41:540:41:56

-I'll just leave it up to the judges

-to see what the verdict is.

0:41:570:42:01

-Fingers crossed.

0:42:010:42:03

-Good luck to you.

0:42:030:42:04

-Good luck to you.

-

-Thank you.

0:42:040:42:05

-Everyone's looking forward eagerly

-to the results.

0:42:060:42:09

-There's a feeling out here

-that Wales will be successful.

0:42:090:42:13

-It's certainly been great watching

-the shepherds work their dogs...

0:42:130:42:18

-..at the home of Welsh

-sheepdog trialling, Meirionnydd.

0:42:180:42:21

-Remember, it's the judges

-who have the final say.

0:42:220:42:25

-Now, the results.

0:42:270:42:28

-The driving champion was

-Welshman Aled Owen with Llangwm Cap.

0:42:290:42:34

-The winning team

-and many congratulations to them...

0:42:350:42:39

-..yes, Wales.

0:42:390:42:41

-On to the individuals.

0:42:430:42:45

-In fourth place, Wales captain

-Medwyn Evans with his dog, Mac.

0:42:450:42:50

-In third place, another Welshman,

-Ross Games, with Roy.

0:42:510:42:56

-The Reserve Champion,

-one point away from winning...

0:42:570:43:01

-..Irishman James McLaughlin.

0:43:010:43:03

-But, the winner...

0:43:030:43:05

-..of the best shepherd

-in the British Isles in 2016....

0:43:060:43:10

-..Kevin Evans

-with his bitch, Preseli Ci.

0:43:100:43:14

-An excellent day for Wales.

0:43:140:43:17

-What an achievement, Kevin.

0:43:190:43:21

-First run of the day.

0:43:210:43:22

-You must have been under a lot of

-pressure all day.

0:43:230:43:25

-It's been a really long day!

0:43:260:43:27

-The last run of all

-really pushed me to the wire.

0:43:270:43:30

-Pleased to get the trophy.

0:43:300:43:32

-It was pretty close by the end.

0:43:320:43:34

-It was very close,

-just a point or two in it.

0:43:340:43:36

-A long day!

0:43:370:43:38

-You've certainly done it once again.

0:43:380:43:41

-How do you keep on doing this?

-You've won it once before.

0:43:410:43:44

-You keep on doing well.

0:43:440:43:46

-What is the key to your success?

0:43:460:43:48

-You've got to be dedicated

-and put a lot of time into it.

0:43:480:43:51

-Hopefully, you can find a dog

-that will suit you.

0:43:510:43:54

-Keep trying, just keep trying.

0:43:540:43:57

-Kevin Evans has had a season

-to remember already.

0:43:570:44:00

-He's topped it all with the Supreme

-Championship with Preseli Ci.

0:44:000:44:05

-It's not just the dog,

-he's quite a man himself.

0:44:060:44:09

-This is his second victory

-in this competition.

0:44:090:44:12

-He's consistent but

-he puts the work in.

0:44:130:44:15

-Winning these competitions

-doesn't come through luck.

0:44:160:44:19

-You've got to do the hard work

-in the background.

0:44:200:44:22

-The dog's ear is important,

-Kevin's dog listen with one whistle.

0:44:230:44:29

-Shedding, the dog's there

-and knows what to do.

0:44:290:44:33

-He's spent a long time before these

-trials doing the work to get here.

0:44:330:44:37

-Kevin and his dog haven't put

-a foot wrong.

0:44:370:44:40

-I hope I'm nearby when Eirian Morgan

-reaches for his pocket.

0:44:400:44:44

-The Welsh won at the end.

0:44:450:44:46

-Cracking trial for the Welsh team.

-We won the team shield in style.

0:44:470:44:51

-Eirian Morgan, how much

-of an achievement is this?

0:44:510:44:54

-You've won at home.

0:44:540:44:56

-Yes and we haven't won

-for a few years.

0:44:560:44:58

-We've been struggling.

0:44:580:45:01

-We've done it this year.

0:45:010:45:03

-We've won in style.

0:45:030:45:04

-Was that something

-to do with the captain?

0:45:040:45:07

-Oh, yes. Dai had two runs.

0:45:070:45:10

-He was successful with bringing
