    Steve Austins Steve Austins Editor, BBC Radio Wales

    100 years ago today, people in Wales were preparing for war. At exactly 11 o'clock tonight a centenary ago, Britain declared war on Germany, who had invaded Belgium and violated the country's neutrality. 100 years on, we're joining the rest of the BBC and the rest of the world in remembering those who...

    We are now just a few days away from 4 August and commemorating the centenary of the start of World War One.

    As fellow BBC Wales blogger Owen Williams put it on the weekend, the Commonwealth Games has taught us that we're a nation of dancers and fighters. Having spent the weekend brushing up on my rhythmic gymnastics knowledge - and watching the Rugby Sevens with my head in my hands - I'll take that.

    Pyle Industrial Estate is an industrial estate par excellence. Distinguished in the world of industrial estates, it is known the world over as a white-hot forge of small-to-medium sized enterprises, where the toil that greases the gears of 21st century capitalism coats every surface.

    As the second hand counts down to 10.30, hundreds of eager fans wait for the grand gates of the All England Club to fling open. They'll be waiting a long time. The home of the most prestigious event in the tennis calendar doesn't do 'flinging'.

    My last reunion film for BBC One's The One Show was broadcast at the end of January and as usual a flurry (or perhaps more accurately I should say 'blizzard') of requests for help came flooding in via email and have kept me and my mind occupied ever since. One of the emails that caught my eye was one...

    Back in January, Philip John from Neath rang BBC Radio Wales asking for advice regarding his grandmother, Annie Gertrude John (nee Whiskerd).

    Annie had given birth to a baby girl in 1911. Baby Phyllis Whiskerd was adopted and Philip wanted to know what he could do to try and find out more about her.

    Didn’t they have a lovely time… when Mongolian band Hanggai arrived in Bangor!

    A few years ago I presented a series on World Music for BBC Radio Cymru, called 'Beth yn y Byd!' (a play on words meaning What in the World!). During this amazing sonic journey I made friends with a wonderful contributor...
