This year the Carmarthen Journal celebrates its 200th anniversary. Its editor, Cathryn Ings, is hoping to locate the very first edition, which was printed on 3 March 1810. Only about 1,000 copies were ever printed, so it would be a rare find indeed if one should come to light.

For 200 years the Carmarthen Journal has covered some of the most profound social and political changes in Wales as well as world events - including the Napoleonic wars and the Rebecca Riots.

Roy Noble will be talking to Cathryn Ings, editor of the Carmarthen Journal about the newspaper on Friday 3 March, from 2pm on BBC Radio Wales.
