The BBC archive is a mine of fantastic audio and video, and our colleagues at BBC Cymru's Welsh-language Cerddoriaeth music site have unearthed a real gem: Eartha Kitt singing in Welsh.
Legendary American songstress Eartha Kitt spoke four languages - and famously sang in seven. But did you know she also once lent that distinctive voice of hers to the Welsh language?
She had apparently been practising singing the traditional Welsh folk song Mae Nghariad I'n Fenws for days before her performance on the BBC Wales programme Late Call, presented by comedian Ronnie Williams.
The programme was broadcast on 10 March 1971.
