    I remember coming in for a late shift on Wales Today and slumping to my desk, exhausted and frazzled before my working day had even begun.

    It's the school holidays. I'd been trying to have some fun time with Gabriel in the morning before getting to the office.

    My adoption has only come to the front of my mind since last year when I was invited to lead a campaign for Adopt Wales. I decided to do it as I felt the time was right for me to tell the world how great adopted life is and how wonderful my family has been.

    Would you ever consider allowing a TV crew to follow you 24/7 for a week asking you endless questions about your life, your lifestyle, your opinions on parenting and on being a teenager while all the while you are living someone else’s life?

    In early June I took part in the filming of an incredibly moving story that was told on The One Show last night. Ruth Buckley had seen a previous reunion story that was broadcast in January and contacted the show for help fulfilling her late father's last wish.

  7. Real families: Separating the myth from the truth

    If you watch the soaps and read the tabloids, you'll have a pretty bleak view of family life.

    It all started when we had family parties back in the 1950s at my home. There was much talk about Annie during these occasions. Apparently my great aunt was a nurse in WW1 and, as a 10-year-old boy I was curious to know more.

    The Girl in the Diary is a passion project. It is a story that intrigued my father and me from the start, and one we believed would intrigue others too. After all, it's not everyday you discover your uncle was involved in a Nazi cover-up!

    The weight management clinic at the Aneurin Bevan Hospital, Ebbw Vale is one of the most welcoming places I've filmed. I've spent many hours sitting in a plain corridor; the nurses taking pity on me as I wait - camera in hand - outside the consulting rooms.

    What another fantastic experience catching up with my troop from the DVLA.

    We were all so excited to be back together. I could clearly see some fantastic successes with most of the team but there had also been some setbacks.

    Those who work with me will know that I often appear in the office on a Monday morning with a lunch box generous enough to feed the entire X-Ray team.

    It's not that I'm greedy (although I do love my food). Rather, I bring enough up the M4 to keep me going for the whole three-day stint I spend at Cardiff...

    How does one begin to rationalise the problem? Three young men grow up in a city that is known for moderation and tolerance and yet seem all too willing to answer a call for Holy war in a land far away.
