Welsh comedian Elis James hosts a brand new comedy show on BBC Radio Wales that examines some of Wales' forgotten historic heroes.
The premise of Elis James' Pantheon of Heroes, which starts tomorrow evening, is that Elis has been given a dubious grant - and a very hypothetical one at that - to populate a garden of heroes with granite statues of figures from Welsh history.
Each show in the series works out which Welsh hero should be immortalised, through a mixture of comedy sketches and stand-up material. Every programme will examine a number of candidates from Welsh history in a given topic area and, at the end, decide which will gain a coveted place in the garden.
Pantheon of Heroes is written by Gareth Gwynn, Elis James and Benjamin Partridge. Co-writers Elis and Ben star alongside fellow comedian Nadia Kamil in each show.
