-# In the valley,

-I heard the crow cawing

0:00:240:00:29

-# I may be young,

-but I burn in the fire

0:00:300:00:34

-# The eagle hovers above me

-in the wind

0:00:340:00:39

-# My blood runs cold

-and death comes sooner

0:00:400:00:44

-# Death comes sooner

0:00:440:00:46

-# Yes, there's an eagle

0:00:460:00:49

-# And a gentle dove

0:00:490:00:51

-# But there is violence and sin

-from a past world

0:00:510:00:57

-# There's a beauty

-that changes the colour of her skin

0:01:030:01:08

-# Where did that beauty go?

0:01:080:01:10

-# It shrivelled in the pain

0:01:100:01:13

-# Homes burn in flames and

-the mother and children fall silent

0:01:140:01:19

-# The father is a body in a trench

-and the bombs shake the cradle

0:01:190:01:24

-# The bombs shake the cradle

0:01:240:01:26

-# Yes, there's an eagle

0:01:270:01:28

-# And a gentle dove

0:01:290:01:31

-# But there is violence and sin

-from a past world

0:01:320:01:36

-# It's true that I didn't have

-an university education

0:01:390:01:44

-# The truth is that

-I learnt too much about life

0:01:450:01:49

-# No-one gives a damn

-but stands on their feet

0:01:500:01:54

-# And yet in Vietnam,

-there's bullets, graves and blood

0:01:550:01:59

-# Bullets, graves and blood

0:01:590:02:01

-# Yes, there's an eagle

0:02:010:02:03

-# And a gentle dove

0:02:040:02:06

-# But there is violence and sin

-from a past world

0:02:070:02:11

-# The stupid politician

-in his bed of feathers

0:02:110:02:16

-# Can you feel all I can feel?

0:02:170:02:21

-# Your empty words

-do not lessen the sin

0:02:220:02:26

-# You and your friends are to blame

0:02:270:02:31

-# Are to blame

0:02:310:02:33

-# Yes, there's an eagle

0:02:330:02:35

-# And a gentle dove

0:02:350:02:38

-# But there is violence and sin

-from a past world #

0:02:380:02:43

-Who remembers Ryan and Ronnie?

0:02:440:02:47

-They did sketches

-in their programme.

0:02:500:02:52

-They didn't like this song.

0:02:530:02:55

-# In the valley,

-a lady drives a van

0:02:560:03:00

-# I may be a young man from Pakistan

0:03:010:03:05

-# The eagle swoops from its nest

-and is followed by two crows

0:03:050:03:10

-# I must believe it

-before I get out of breath

0:03:110:03:14

-# Before I get out of breath

0:03:150:03:16

-# Is there another goat?

0:03:170:03:19

-# Or a cat or dog?

0:03:190:03:21

-# But in the garage,

-there's a chimpanzee #

0:03:220:03:26

-LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:03:270:03:29

-The immortal Bob Dylan

-always said...

0:03:310:03:34

-.."You shouldn't take it

-so serious!"

0:03:350:03:38

-This song is called Daeth Neb Yn Ol.

0:03:400:03:43

-# Everyone was on the quay

0:03:490:03:52

-# In Milford Haven

0:03:520:03:54

-# Wet and cold

-in the wind and fine rain

0:03:550:04:00

-# The ships slipped away

-like shadows

0:04:010:04:06

-# And the great ocean lay ahead

0:04:060:04:11

-# No-one came back to tell the story

0:04:120:04:17

-# No-one but the wind

-to sing its song

0:04:170:04:22

-# Only gulls

-and the eye of the enemy

0:04:220:04:27

-# Saw the sailors

-burning in the fire

0:04:270:04:32

-# Iron shark hiding in the depths

0:04:330:04:37

-# Its arms cruel

-as the teeth in its head

0:04:380:04:42

-# It woke from its slumber

-and rose from the bottom

0:04:430:04:48

-# Waiting for a sacrifice

-under the heaven's moon

0:04:480:04:52

-# But, no-one came back

-to tell the story

0:04:520:04:58

-# No-one but the wind

-to sing its song

0:04:580:05:03

-# Only gulls

-and the eye of the enemy

0:05:040:05:08

-# Saw the sailors

-burning in the fire

0:05:080:05:13

-# In the midst of the ocean,

-there were explosions and flames

0:05:140:05:18

-# The raging torpedoes

-darted through the water

0:05:190:05:23

-# It was a tragic slaughter

0:05:230:05:25

-# A devious attack in the darkness

0:05:260:05:29

-# The world was in mourning

-after the war

0:05:290:05:34

-# No-one came back to tell the story

0:05:340:05:39

-# No-one but the wind

-to sing its song

0:05:390:05:44

0:05:490:05:54

-but it's too late

0:05:550:05:59

-# Wives lie in wait

-to hear the truth

0:06:000:06:04

-# Far away under the western smoke

0:06:040:06:09

-# They lie dead

-in the sea's blue grave

0:06:100:06:15

-# No-one came back to tell the story

0:06:150:06:20

-# No-one but the wind

-to sing its song

0:06:200:06:25

-# Only gulls

-and the eye of the enemy

0:06:250:06:30

-# Saw the sailors

-burning in the fire

0:06:300:06:35

-# Small orphans,

-where will you find comfort?

0:06:360:06:40

-# Where in the world

-will you get money to live?

0:06:410:06:45

-# From the government,

-you'll only get pennies for comfort

0:06:460:06:51

-# To pay for your fathers

-who are now with God

0:06:510:06:56

-# No-one came back to tell the story

0:06:560:07:01

-# No-one but the wind

-to sing its song

0:07:010:07:06

-# Only gulls

-and the eye of the enemy

0:07:060:07:11

-burning in the fire #

0:07:110:07:17

0:07:260:07:28

-# Just a girl from the woollen mill

0:07:510:07:55

-# Hard at work every day

0:07:570:07:59

-# Oblivious to the wider world

0:08:010:08:04

-# The world outside

0:08:050:08:07

-# Her hair was black and beautiful

0:08:090:08:14

-# Like a strange dream

0:08:160:08:19

-# In my sleep

0:08:200:08:22

-# But she does a man's job every day

0:08:230:08:27

-# For her pay

0:08:270:08:29

-# Between the deep roots

-and the rushes

0:08:330:08:36

-# There's a narrow canal

0:08:380:08:40

-# Which flows by

0:08:400:08:42

-# The old wheel turns the machines

-so slowly

0:08:430:08:48

-# And the man ignites the fire

0:08:510:08:55

-# Where Jack and the boys

-are cleaning the wool

0:08:560:09:00

-# And the weavers still work

0:09:010:09:04

-# On the banks

0:09:050:09:07

-# Just a girl from the woollen mill

0:09:100:09:14

-# Hard at work every day

0:09:160:09:19

-# She creates the colourful cloth

0:09:210:09:26

-# The hours are long and hard

0:09:300:09:35

-# The days fall down around her

0:09:370:09:41

-# On the water that flows through

0:09:410:09:45

-# A foggy morning

0:09:450:09:47

-# Just a girl from the woollen mill

0:09:500:09:55

-# Hard at work every day #

0:09:570:10:00

-Thank you.

0:17:230:17:25

-I surprise myself when I look

-at the sad songs I've written.

0:17:270:17:31

-I'm not really a sad man!

0:17:330:17:36

-But this is a sad story.

0:17:390:17:42

-# Thousands are supporting you

0:17:430:17:48

-# While you are in prison

0:17:490:17:52

-# Listen to the screams of

-the Government "Foolish bandit!"

0:17:520:17:57

-# Criminal! Thug! Mocking.

0:17:580:18:01

-# But whatever they say against you

0:18:010:18:05

-# Suffering and death

-were what you chose

0:18:060:18:10

-# To have peace in Ireland,

-and to be free

0:18:100:18:15

-# Bobby Sands

0:18:150:18:18

-# I read about your plight

-in the Western Mail

0:18:210:18:25

-# In an editorial article

0:18:260:18:30

-# Sands died in the Long Kesh jail

0:18:300:18:34

-# Accept that fact as a warning

0:18:340:18:38

-# In their opinion,

-you died for anger

0:18:380:18:43

-# Violence, terror, the bomb and gun

0:18:440:18:48

-# Theft and murder was your way

0:18:480:18:53

-# Bobby Sands

0:18:530:18:55

-# "He isn't a martyr,"

-says the voice of the English

0:18:580:19:03

-# But a hostage in bloody hands

0:19:030:19:08

-# An appalling excuse to murder more

0:19:080:19:12

-# But Sands is content

0:19:120:19:16

-# To die for this terror

0:19:160:19:21

-# Theft, murder, the bomb and gun

0:19:210:19:26

-# But I know his name will go down

0:19:260:19:31

-# With Michael Collins

0:19:310:19:35

-# But whatever they say against you

0:19:360:19:40

-# Suffering and death

-were what you chose

-# Listen to the screams of

-the Government "Foolish bandit!"

0:20:110:20:16

-# Does Thatcher live in peace?

-Welcome back to a special concert

-by Meic Stevens.

0:21:100:21:13

-Next, we have Victor Parker,

-Ond Dof Yn Ol and Tryweryn.

0:21:130:21:18

-First, this is Traeth Anobaith.

0:21:190:21:21

-My thanks to Joni Mitchell.

0:21:220:21:25

-# Day breaks without a song

-next to stagnant water

0:21:320:21:36

-# Wind feels like the footsteps

-of the dead, risen from the grave

0:21:390:21:44

-# No-one sees the dawn

-on the beach of despair

0:21:470:21:52

-# No-one sees the dawn

-in the waters of the lake

0:21:550:21:59

-# A grey gleaner

-treads on the seaweed

0:22:020:22:05

-# Where the tide once was

0:22:060:22:08

-# Collector of our shadows

0:22:090:22:12

-# From the cold eye of the wind

0:22:130:22:16

-# From the cold eye of the wind

0:22:170:22:19

-# The end of the love affair

-between land and sea

0:22:260:22:31

-# Water's salty fingers

-in the rock's body

0:22:340:22:38

-# In the wave's magic,

-we hear the moans of the marriage

0:22:420:22:46

-# Hunger fills her womb

-for white froth

0:22:490:22:53

-# It's sad to hear the farewell song

0:22:570:22:59

-# Song of the coarse sand

-and pebbles

0:22:590:23:03

-# Listen to the noise

-of the seahorses

0:23:040:23:08

-# Rousing the sleepy valley

0:23:080:23:11

-# Rousing the sleepy valley

0:23:110:23:14

-# One day, the lighthouse-keeper

-will be rewarded

0:23:250:23:29

-# Treasures from the deep

-will return to the shores

0:23:320:23:36

-# But silver treasures

-in the clay

0:23:470:23:52

-# A ship will scar

-the green mirror of the sea

0:23:540:24:00

-# And through the rain,

-like a stray arrow

0:24:020:24:05

-# The swallow returned

0:24:060:24:09

-# The swallow returned #

0:24:090:24:13

-Thank you.

0:24:210:24:23

-# A shooting star in the corner

0:24:270:24:30

-# In the confusion in the bar

0:24:300:24:33

-# This is Uncle Victor's story

0:24:350:24:38

-# He smiles on the old guitar

0:24:380:24:41

-# He lives in Loudon Square

0:24:430:24:46

-# The following morning

-he wanders around

0:24:460:24:50

-# Everyone recognized him

0:24:500:24:53

-# Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

0:24:540:24:57

-# Wine, smoke and naughty girls

0:24:580:25:02

-# Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

0:25:020:25:05

-# A large smile under a black hat

0:25:120:25:15

-# And a pint of pleasant beer

0:25:160:25:19

-# Long fingers plucking the strings

0:25:200:25:23

-# Victor playing again

0:25:230:25:26

-# Tonight,

-we'll go to Quebec to see the day

0:25:270:25:31

-# The same guitar on his knee

0:25:310:25:35

-# Uncle Victor lighting up our lives

0:25:350:25:38

-# Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

-# Wine, smoke and naughty girls

0:25:430:25:46

-# Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

0:25:470:25:50

-# I was sad when he died

0:25:570:25:59

-# On that particular afternoon

0:26:000:26:03

-# No warning signs

0:26:050:26:07

-# When he crossed over

0:26:080:26:11

-# His funeral was a music festival

0:26:120:26:15

-# Jazz from the east

-and swing from the south

0:26:160:26:20

-# The maestro from Tiger Bay

0:26:200:26:23

-# Yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

0:26:230:26:26

-# Wine, smoke and naughty girls

0:26:280:26:31

0:27:060:27:09

0:27:110:27:13

-He also translated this one.

0:27:150:27:17

0:27:180:27:21

-This is the Welsh version.

0:27:220:27:25

-# I don't want the wine of your kiss

0:27:310:27:35

-# I would be drinking

-pain and sadness

0:27:350:27:40

-# What sort of a girl are you

-who allows

0:27:410:27:46

-# Light and darkness?

0:27:460:27:50

-# I will leave you

-on a journey to the stars

0:27:520:27:56

-# Sunshine turns into rain

0:27:570:28:00

-# But I'll come back one day

0:28:020:28:07

-# And I will hold your hand

0:28:070:28:12

-# Although you've gone

0:28:160:28:18

-# You're with me

0:28:190:28:21

-# I can still feel the warmth

0:28:220:28:25

-# That's why bitter tears

0:28:270:28:31

-# Fall down my cheeks

0:28:310:28:35

-# I will leave you

-on a journey to the stars

0:28:370:28:41

-# Sunshine turns into rain

0:28:420:28:46

-# But I'll come back one day

0:28:470:28:52

-# And I will hold your hand

0:28:530:28:57

-# You are my morning light

0:29:040:29:09

-# You mean more

-than the pearls of the world

0:29:100:29:13

-# But if you are to love me

0:29:140:29:19

-# The price is rather high

0:29:200:29:24

-# I will leave you

-on a journey to the stars

0:29:260:29:30

-# Sunshine turns into rain

0:29:310:29:34

-# But I'll come back one day

0:29:360:29:41

-# And I will hold your hand

0:29:420:29:46

-# The rose by the door

0:30:280:30:31

0:38:410:38:44

-# In memory, I must go now

0:38:450:38:48

-# I remember

-the English foreigners came

0:38:500:38:53

-# To ruin this valley

0:38:550:38:57

-# Until it died

0:38:580:39:00

-# The soul of Solva calls now

0:39:040:39:07

-# Her meadows

-are under the foot of the giant

0:39:090:39:13

-# And her trees imprisoned

0:39:130:39:16

-# The tearful mirror resembles dew

0:39:250:39:29

-# The call of the seagull,

-hear her song

0:39:300:39:33

-# Sailing boats, sailing late

0:39:340:39:38

-# The natives are all going away

0:39:380:39:41

-# Foreigners are stealing the valley

0:39:430:39:47

-# The valley is in chains

0:39:480:39:51

-# And it is dying

0:39:520:39:54

-# The soul of Solva is calling now

0:39:570:40:00

-# Her meadows

-are under the giant's foot

0:40:020:40:05

-# And her trees imprisoned

0:40:060:40:08

-# It is the end of the song

0:40:160:40:20

-# I sleep with her in the hay

0:40:210:40:24

-# I cast my tears back to the sea

0:40:260:40:30

-# To the waves on the shore

0:40:300:40:34

-# The community

-is completely drowned

0:40:360:40:41

-# A crazy dream?

0:40:420:40:45

-# Who knows?

0:40:450:40:47

-# In the village of Solva

0:40:470:40:49

-# The soul of Solva is calling now

0:40:530:40:56

-# Her meadows

-are under the giant's foot

0:40:570:41:01

-# And her trees imprisoned

0:41:020:41:05

-# Imprisoned

0:41:080:41:10
