-Shwmae!

-I'm Sion Tomos Owen, a Rhondda boy.

0:00:030:00:06

-I love it here. It's full of

-possibilities for artists like me.

0:00:070:00:12

-I always look for different ways

-of portraying the valley in my work.

0:00:120:00:16

-During the series, I'll speak

-to lots of interesting people.

0:00:170:00:21

-I'll paint pictures reflecting

-what the valley is really like.

0:00:220:00:26

-I'll put them together

-to create a big new map...

0:00:260:00:29

-..of the lives

-of the Rhondda people.

0:00:290:00:31

-Today, I've come to

-Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda in Llwynypia...

0:01:100:01:13

-..to paint the second part

-of my map.

0:01:140:01:16

-My theme this time is community,

-which is very apt...

0:01:160:01:19

-..in a building where

-there's so much coming and going.

0:01:200:01:23

-Hey! How you doing?

0:01:320:01:34

-Painting.

0:01:350:01:36

-I realize that the map is ambitious.

0:01:390:01:42

-But I have a good idea by now

-of what I'm trying to achieve.

0:01:420:01:46

-I've no idea what my family

-will think of the project.

0:01:470:01:50

-I'm trying to do something

-about every area.

0:01:510:01:55

-But it's hard.

0:01:550:01:56

-I haven't finished it yet

-but thinking about...

0:01:560:01:59

-Thinking of ideas is hard.

0:01:590:02:01

-What would you do?

0:02:020:02:03

-What would you do?

-

-I wouldn't do it.

0:02:030:02:04

-I'm trying to be ambitious.

-Do something different.

0:02:080:02:12

-It's a lot of work.

0:02:120:02:14

-I don't want it to be too cliched.

0:02:140:02:17

-It's what it could end up being.

0:02:170:02:19

-It can become kitsch...

0:02:200:02:21

-..if you do stuff like the mines,

-coal and rugby.

0:02:220:02:27

-But, they are part of the valley

-as well.

0:02:270:02:30

-It's exciting.

0:02:310:02:32

-But...

0:02:320:02:33

-..the problem is time.

0:02:340:02:38

-It can be

-a metaphor for the Rhondda.

0:02:390:02:42

-People say, "You can't do it.

-It's too ambitious. It's too big."

0:02:420:02:46

-Stuff it, I'm doing it anyway.

0:02:460:02:48

-I want to do something big, grand,

-overambitious and make it look good.

0:02:480:02:53

-Show we can do it.

0:02:540:02:55

-You've never been one

-to turn down a challenge...

0:02:550:02:59

-..so, good luck!

0:02:590:03:01

-During the series, I want to give

-you a guided tour of the Rhondda...

0:03:040:03:08

-..so that you

-get to know the place better.

0:03:090:03:12

-I'm going to start with my belly, or

-some of the places I go to fill it.

0:03:120:03:17

-My first stop

-is High Street Social in Treorchy.

0:03:170:03:20

-Alright?

0:03:220:03:24

-Can I have eggs benedict

-and Mrs C's frothy coffee please?

0:03:240:03:29

-No problem.

0:03:290:03:30

-High Street Social is on the site

-of one of Carpanini's Italian cafes.

0:03:330:03:38

-The new owners have kept many

-of the old cafe's original features.

0:03:380:03:42

-That means

-there's a great atmosphere here.

0:03:420:03:45

-They also make meals that are

-different to your usual cafe.

0:03:480:03:52

-They offer

-a varied and international menu.

0:03:520:03:55

-But this is definitely my favourite.

0:03:560:03:59

-Eggs benedict

-and Mrs C's frothy coffee.

0:04:050:04:08

-Spot on.

0:04:180:04:19

-There are plenty of good cafes

-in the Rhondda.

0:04:200:04:23

-I'd better do some exercise next.

0:04:240:04:27

-This is Kris.

-He works as an electrician.

0:04:290:04:32

-But I think

-he works hardest in the gym.

0:04:330:04:35

-Kris, we're in Treorchy,

-in your house.

0:04:420:04:44

-Where are you from originally?

0:04:450:04:47

-Where are you from originally?

-

-I was born in Lewis Street, Pentre.

0:04:470:04:49

-I lived there for two or three years

-then we moved to Hillside Street.

0:04:490:04:54

-I lived in Hillside Street

-for about 20 years.

0:04:540:04:57

-At the highest point.

0:04:570:04:58

-At the highest point.

-

-Yes, the top side of the village.

0:04:580:05:00

-Which school did you go to?

0:05:010:05:03

-Which school did you go to?

-

-I went to primary school in Ynyswen.

0:05:030:05:06

-You were a year above me.

0:05:060:05:08

-It's hard to tell, I know!

0:05:080:05:11

-I had a small paper round!

0:05:120:05:14

-I started in Ynys.

0:05:150:05:16

-After that, I went to Cymer.

0:05:170:05:19

-After leaving school...

0:05:190:05:22

-..I went to work for the council

-for four years.

0:05:220:05:26

-I then got an apprenticeship

-at a company in Cardiff...

0:05:260:05:31

-..Evans Electrical.

0:05:310:05:32

-I did my apprenticeship

-for three years.

0:05:330:05:35

-To be a sparky?

0:05:350:05:37

-To be a sparky?

-

-Yes.

0:05:370:05:38

-After that...

0:05:390:05:40

-..I started working in Cardiff

-in the St David's shopping centre.

0:05:400:05:44

-The massive one?

0:05:440:05:45

-The massive one?

-

-Yes.

0:05:450:05:46

-It was mad. I finished

-my apprenticeship on the Friday.

0:05:460:05:50

-I was called into the office

-and told, "Thanks. You're done.

0:05:500:05:53

-"You're sacked."

0:05:540:05:55

-Honest!

0:05:550:05:56

-Honest!

0:05:560:05:58

-Their policy is you do your time

-and then you go out into the world.

0:05:580:06:03

-Didn't you know that?

0:06:030:06:04

-Didn't you know that?

-

-No!

0:06:040:06:05

-So what do you do now?

0:06:060:06:08

-So what do you do now?

-

-I'm a lighting designer.

0:06:080:06:10

-I work on projects with people.

0:06:100:06:12

-So you plan everything.

0:06:130:06:14

-So you plan everything.

-

-Yes. What lights go in.

0:06:140:06:15

-It's better for you

-as you can work from home.

0:06:160:06:19

-I can see some muscly men

-on top of the TV.

0:06:190:06:22

-What are those?

0:06:230:06:24

-I looked like that back in the day.

0:06:240:06:26

-I looked like that back in the day.

-

-Very small!

0:06:260:06:27

-In shape but very small!

-That was the problem!

0:06:300:06:33

-I started when I was 14 in Cymer.

0:06:330:06:36

-I tried to play rugby

-but I was eight stone. I was tiny.

0:06:360:06:40

-My dad said we had to go to the gym

-to put some muscle on me.

0:06:400:06:46

-That's why I competed

-in Junior Mr Wales.

0:06:460:06:50

-I won that in my first competition,

-when I was 20, in Porthcawl.

0:06:500:06:54

-It was good.

0:06:540:06:55

-No.15, Kris Jones!

0:06:560:06:58

-It was tough.

0:07:010:07:02

-You look pretty tanned.

0:07:030:07:04

-You look pretty tanned.

-

-Very tanned.

0:07:040:07:05

-It's called Dream Tan.

0:07:050:07:07

-It's rub on, rub off,

-but it's a very good tan.

0:07:070:07:10

-I'd put girls to shame

-on a Friday...

0:07:100:07:13

-..if I walked into the Lion

-with a bit of Dream Tan.

0:07:130:07:17

-"Look at this, girls!"

0:07:170:07:18

-This is a tan.

0:07:180:07:20

-Right, let's see how hard

-this bodybuilding lark is.

0:07:270:07:30

-Oh, right.

0:07:330:07:34

-It's heavier than it looks!

0:07:360:07:38

-Come on.

0:07:400:07:41

-One.

0:07:410:07:42

-Two.

0:07:420:07:43

-The lifting

-is easier than the sitting down.

0:07:440:07:47

-One.

0:07:550:07:56

-Two.

0:07:560:07:57

-Three.

0:07:580:07:59

-If you trained for ten years,

-you could do this.

0:07:590:08:02

-Great.

0:08:020:08:03

-Thank you.

0:08:050:08:06

-Thank you.

-

-No problem!

0:08:060:08:08

-That wasn't far off what I weigh.

-What was it, 90?

0:08:100:08:13

-Yeah, 90kg. 14 stone.

0:08:130:08:15

-When I train, I do my chest, arms,

-back and shoulders...

0:08:220:08:28

-..and my legs on another day.

0:08:280:08:30

-What's your routine?

-Four days training, three days off?

0:08:300:08:34

-Well, to be honest...

0:08:340:08:36

-..I've done it for so many years now

-I do it when I feel like it.

0:08:360:08:41

-I might train for a day or two

-then have a rest day...

0:08:410:08:46

-..then go back for a day or two.

0:08:460:08:48

-I don't have a set routine any more.

0:08:480:08:51

-I just go when I feel like it.

0:08:510:08:54

-If you're tired, you won't do it.

0:08:540:08:56

-You have to listen to your body

-if you're tired, like you said.

0:08:560:09:01

-Mine's telling me I'm shattered.

-What do I do now?!

0:09:020:09:05

-Your body's telling you

-it's time to go home!

0:09:080:09:11

-For example...

0:09:130:09:14

-Higher. So it's level.

0:09:150:09:16

-Yeah. Up to there.

0:09:170:09:18

-I went to the Royal Welsh once.

0:09:190:09:21

-I had to pick up a drill

-and hold it up for ages.

0:09:210:09:24

-Did you win?

0:09:240:09:25

-Did you win?

-

-Three minutes and five. No.

0:09:250:09:26

-I look at this and think, "Flippin'

-'eck. Look at the shape he's in."

0:09:280:09:32

-I look like a sack of potatoes

-with a rope.

0:09:330:09:35

-When you do it, to achieve

-what you want for the competition...

0:09:350:09:39

-..is it worth it by the end?

0:09:400:09:41

-Yeah, I think so.

0:09:410:09:43

-It takes so much discipline

-to do it for three months.

0:09:430:09:49

-You can take that into your work

-and life in general.

0:09:500:09:54

-Come on. Come on.

0:09:540:09:56

-Come on.

0:09:560:09:58

-Come on. Come on.

0:09:580:10:00

-Come on.

0:10:010:10:02

-No, Jac y Jwced.

0:10:020:10:04

-Home. I don't know how you do it.

0:10:050:10:07

-Home. I don't know how you do it.

-

-Well done.

0:10:070:10:08

-You tried!

0:10:090:10:10

-Thanks! I tried!

0:10:110:10:12

-Right.

0:10:120:10:13

-Right.

-

-Lunchtime. Come on.

0:10:130:10:15

-Right, I want chips!

0:10:150:10:17

-Everyone likes salt and vinegar

-with their chips.

0:10:180:10:22

-But the Rhondda people

-like a bit of humour too.

0:10:230:10:26

-Here, in Ton Pentre...

0:10:270:10:28

-..Leighton Jones has opened a shop

-called A Fish Called Rhondda.

0:10:280:10:32

-In Treherbert...

0:10:350:10:37

-..his son Gareth has opened

-a shop called Good Pie Mr Chips.

0:10:370:10:41

-Having catchy names and cooking

-tasty chips runs in the family.

0:10:420:10:47

-Everyone in Rhondda Fach

-knows this shop.

0:10:510:10:54

-Giuliano Margaritelli's family...

0:10:550:10:58

-..has been selling fish and chips

-in Ferndale for 70 years.

0:10:590:11:02

-Ilda, Giuliano's mother, worked here

-years ago with her brother-in-law.

0:11:020:11:08

-The food tastes as good as ever.

0:11:080:11:10

-Stonkin' chips.

0:11:190:11:21

-After finishing the chips, I'll come

-here, to the clog-maker's workshop.

0:11:240:11:29

-Then I'll have a feast

-at another of the valley's cafes.

0:11:300:11:34

-I'll then go to the dance studio

-to see this lively lot.

0:11:340:11:38

-The theme of the picture I'm drawing

-in Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda is community.

0:11:570:12:01

-I'm trying to paint life's journey,

-from when we're born...

0:12:020:12:05

-..to when we die

-and everything in between.

0:12:060:12:09

-A hospital such as this

-sees it all...

0:12:100:12:12

-..and is a focal point

-for the community.

0:12:130:12:16

-Alright?

0:12:170:12:18

-Back to the tour of the cafes

-and to a new favourite of mine.

0:12:290:12:33

-Delicious

-is on the high street in Ystrad.

0:12:330:12:37

-There's an incredible choice of food

-on offer.

0:12:370:12:40

-I've decided to go

-for the house special.

0:12:410:12:44

-Chicken chow mein, please.

0:12:440:12:46

-Matthew Rogers is a local lad.

0:12:500:12:52

-He worked as a chef in the Army

-for 17 years...

0:12:530:12:56

-..before coming home

-and opening his own business.

0:12:560:12:59

-Chicken chow mein.

0:13:020:13:04

-Fabulous. Flippin' 'eck -

-that's massive!

0:13:040:13:06

-It's huge. It's bigger

-than I'd serve for myself at home!

0:13:070:13:11

-It's lush.

0:13:230:13:24

-That's enough food for today

-and the end of my tour of the cafes.

0:13:260:13:31

-Thousands of people travel out

-of the Rhondda to work every day.

0:13:330:13:38

-I'm going to leave the valley for

-a little to see a craftsman at work.

0:13:380:13:43

-Here, at the National History Museum

-in St Fagans...

0:13:450:13:49

-..Geraint works at his craft.

0:13:490:13:51

-Hi, Ger.

0:14:000:14:01

-Hi, Ger.

-

-Hi, Sion. Nice to meet you.

0:14:010:14:03

-You've got me out of the Rhondda!

0:14:030:14:05

-Shall we see why I'm here?

0:14:060:14:07

-Shall we see why I'm here?

-

-Let's go in.

0:14:070:14:08

-Wow! It's like my wife's wardrobe -

-shoes all over the floor!

0:14:120:14:17

-It's all handmade.

0:14:180:14:20

-No sandpaper has been used on that

-at all.

0:14:200:14:24

-You used a lathe?

0:14:240:14:27

-No, it's all handmade.

0:14:270:14:29

-I use a stock knife, a scooper

-and a rebate knife.

0:14:290:14:33

-This is the stock knife.

-It hooks on the bench here.

0:14:330:14:37

-This is the scooper.

0:14:370:14:40

-It has a circular shape...

0:14:410:14:45

-I wouldn't have believed it that you

-only used those three things.

0:14:450:14:49

-That's all I use to make the instep.

0:14:500:14:53

-Then I do the rebate by using this.

0:14:540:14:58

-Is this the rebate?

0:14:580:15:00

-Yes. This cuts the rebate.

0:15:000:15:02

-That's where I put the leather.

0:15:020:15:04

-This is the sole and the foundation

-for everything else.

0:15:040:15:08

-Yes. It's made to measure.

0:15:080:15:10

-I draw around people's feet

-to get the shape before cutting it.

0:15:110:15:15

-So this is made from this.

0:15:150:15:17

-So this is made from this.

-

-That's it.

0:15:170:15:18

-This is the pattern I've made.

0:15:190:15:22

-I've drawn around the foot

-and shaped it a little.

0:15:220:15:26

-I then shape it more naturally,

-put it on the wood...

0:15:260:15:30

-..draw around it and use this

-to do most of the cutting.

0:15:310:15:36

-How long does one of these take?

0:15:360:15:38

-I never cut one -

-it's always a pair.

0:15:380:15:41

-I'm not being funny.

0:15:410:15:42

-What I do is work on one,

-do some work on the other...

0:15:430:15:47

-..do more on the original

-and then back again.

0:15:470:15:51

-I work on a pair.

0:15:510:15:52

-Cutting one is easy but doing a

-mirror image of it is a lot harder.

0:15:520:15:58

-I've been here for about 25 years.

0:16:070:16:10

-I used to do carving in the houses.

0:16:100:16:13

-In the winter, when people paid

-to come in, it was quite quiet...

0:16:130:16:17

-..so I did some carpentry

-in the houses to pass the time.

0:16:170:16:21

-I said to the museum that I wanted

-to be a craftsman here.

0:16:210:16:25

-At the time, a retired clog maker

-was working here as a caretaker...

0:16:260:16:30

-..a chap called Hywel Davies.

0:16:300:16:32

-I asked him if he was willing

-to teach me. He said, "Yes, fine."

0:16:320:16:36

-That's it, basically.

0:16:360:16:39

-It was fantastic to work with Hywel.

0:16:390:16:41

-I'd ask him if something was right

-and he'd say, "It'll do."

0:16:410:16:45

-I wanted to know if it was right!

0:16:460:16:48

-I hate that!

-It would drive me bonkers!

0:16:480:16:51

-I never wear anything else

-on my feet.

0:16:570:17:00

-These are about seven years old.

0:17:010:17:03

-Do you always wear them?

-Do you actually enjoy wearing them?

0:17:030:17:07

-Yes.

0:17:080:17:09

-If I go out clubbing, I wear these.

0:17:090:17:12

-I have three pairs.

0:17:120:17:13

-I tell my wife I have

-a pair for work, a normal pair...

0:17:130:17:17

-..and a pulling pair!

0:17:180:17:19

-The biggest I've made was a size 17.

0:17:210:17:24

-Gosh! You'd need a tree for that!

0:17:240:17:26

-He was quite tall.

0:17:260:17:28

-He couldn't come in here!

0:17:280:17:29

-He couldn't come in here!

-

-He stooped to about half his size!

0:17:290:17:32

-There they are.

0:17:340:17:35

-Look at that!

0:17:360:17:37

-They're a bit dusty

-because they've been on the floor.

0:17:390:17:43

-I could sail in this!

0:17:430:17:44

-It's massive!

0:17:460:17:47

-Can I have a go?

0:17:500:17:51

-Can I have a go?

-

-You can try. It's not easy.

0:17:510:17:54

-Put your left hand there, like this.

0:17:540:17:57

-Watch your fingers.

0:17:570:17:59

-Keep them out the way.

0:17:590:18:00

-Am I holding it in the right place -

-here?

0:18:010:18:03

-Hold it there.

0:18:030:18:04

-Push down and cut as you do so.

0:18:050:18:07

-Try to keep it...

0:18:120:18:14

-I'll help you.

0:18:140:18:16

-Bend over.

0:18:160:18:18

-I can't do it!

0:18:190:18:21

-How about that?

0:18:230:18:24

-Toothpicks.

0:18:240:18:26

-Yes, toothpicks. Or art.

0:18:260:18:28

-Turner Prize.

0:18:290:18:30

-Modern art.

0:18:300:18:31

-It can go in the Tate!

0:18:320:18:33

-Geraint is a Valleys' lad.

0:18:370:18:39

-He lives here in Pentre...

0:18:400:18:41

-..with his wife Debbie and children

-Adam, Kirsty and Glesni.

0:18:410:18:46

-Adam, do you live here?

0:18:490:18:51

-No, I live in Cardiff.

0:18:510:18:53

-I work in a casino at the moment.

0:18:530:18:58

-Are you the dealer in the casino?

0:18:580:19:01

-Yes, I'm the dealer.

-Roulette and blackjack.

0:19:010:19:05

-Right.

0:19:050:19:06

-Kirsty, you live away, don't you?

0:19:070:19:09

-Kirsty, you live away, don't you?

-

-In Swansea, studying Psychology.

0:19:090:19:11

-What do you hope to do?

0:19:120:19:13

-I want to do a masters.

-Maybe next year.

0:19:130:19:18

-I'll see

-what my financial situation is.

0:19:190:19:22

-I might go on to be a psychiatrist.

0:19:230:19:26

-Debbie, I can tell from your accent

-you're not from the Rhondda.

0:19:270:19:31

-No. I'm from Cardiff

-but I've been here for 12 years now.

0:19:310:19:34

-You speak English

-but your children speak Welsh.

0:19:340:19:38

-Is it natural

-to drop in and out of Welsh?

0:19:380:19:40

-I speak Welsh a bit.

-I should speak Welsh more.

0:19:410:19:44

-I have asked them

-to speak Welsh at home...

0:19:440:19:47

-..so by now,

-I'd obviously be more fluent.

0:19:470:19:50

-I wish we did

-all speak Welsh in the house.

0:19:500:19:53

-I see there's one missing.

0:19:530:19:55

-Ryan is at Coleg y Cymoedd.

-He's studying Performing Arts.

0:19:560:20:00

-In Llwynypia?

0:20:000:20:01

-In Llwynypia?

-

-Yes.

0:20:010:20:03

-I'll go to see Ryan performing, I'll

-go to the casino to gamble a bit...

0:20:030:20:07

-..and I'll stay away from Kirsty!

0:20:070:20:10

-You'll need to see Kirsty

-after losing all your money to Adam!

0:20:100:20:14

-Here's the lively and fit Performing

-Arts students in Llwynypia...

0:20:200:20:24

-..with Ryan Parfitt among them.

0:20:250:20:27

-Five, six, seven, eight!

0:20:270:20:29

-One, two, three. Faces all the time!

0:20:290:20:31

-One. Two.

0:20:320:20:34

-We do acting, singing and dancing.

0:20:340:20:37

-Dancing too. Oh, right.

0:20:370:20:38

-Are you a natural dancer or did you

-have to learn it from scratch?

0:20:390:20:42

-I had to learn it.

-I didn't expect to do everything.

0:20:420:20:46

-So you do everything even though

-you'd rather do one aspect.

0:20:470:20:51

-You can't just choose to do acting.

0:20:510:20:52

-You can't just choose to do acting.

-

-No, you have to do everything.

0:20:520:20:54

-It makes you more rounded,

-I suppose.

0:20:540:20:57

-Lavinia,

-you are not displeased with this.

0:20:570:21:00

-Not I, my lord.

0:21:000:21:02

-Some of our students go straight

-into university, which is brilliant.

0:21:020:21:07

-Some of our students decide

-to go into the professional world...

0:21:070:21:11

-..go to auditions

-and then maybe to drama schools...

0:21:110:21:15

-..in London and further afield.

0:21:150:21:17

-Strong arms.

0:21:170:21:19

-That's the aim.

0:21:190:21:21

-They're currently rehearsing for

-the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

0:21:210:21:26

-Make your audience believe it.

0:21:260:21:28

-Is Shakespeare and being on the

-West End stage what you want to do?

0:21:280:21:32

-Yes. 100%.

0:21:330:21:34

-Yes. 100%.

-

-Me too.

0:21:340:21:35

-Acting, performing or singing?

0:21:350:21:39

-Acting for me.

0:21:390:21:40

-Acting for me.

-

-Musical theatre.

0:21:400:21:42

-What are you going to do after?

0:21:490:21:51

-I like a course at the Royal Welsh

-College of Music and Drama.

0:21:520:21:56

-In Cardiff.

0:21:560:21:57

-Yes, so I'm looking into that.

0:21:570:21:59

-What's your goal?

0:22:000:22:02

-I just want to act.

0:22:030:22:05

-I'd like to be on television.

0:22:060:22:09

-If I'm still acting, I'll be happy.

0:22:090:22:12

-Thanks...

0:22:120:22:13

-..sweet Lavinia.

0:22:140:22:15

-Good luck to them all in the future.

0:22:200:22:23

-Some of them might earn a place on

-a future map of the valley's stars.

0:22:270:22:32

-I've finished the second picture.

-Things are shaping up.
