    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!

    Iwan England Iwan England

    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.

  9. X-Ray Health Special: Small steps to feeling good

    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...

    It's hard to believe that a whole year has passed by, but here we are gearing up to present another Royal Welsh Show. I always enjoy catching up with fellow presenters Rachael Garside and Sara Edwards and we genuinely have a great time making the programme.

    I met Charlotte in Cardiff's Chapter Arts Centre one afternoon in late February to have an initial discussion about making the documentary. Charlotte was putting on two big gigs, which were to be inspired by her love of physics and would form the narrative of our documentary.

    Tim Rogers Tim Rogers

    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.

    Geraint Rowlands Geraint Rowlands

    I first met John Hartson back in 1994. I was working as a television producer in BBC Wales Sport and had travelled up to Luton on a wet and windy February night with football commentator John Hardy to watch Luton Town’s FA Cup fourth round replay against Newcastle United.

    Tim Rogers Tim Rogers

    In the eyes of the world's media every country has a 'story'. It can be an event, an individual or an issue that will attract the main focus of the moment. Revolution in the Ukraine, a military coup in Thailand, kidnapped school girls in Nigeria or the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan. Closer to...

    Six years ago the BBC brought me from Texas to Wales. Westminster was considering sweeping welfare reforms, which the U.S. had done in the 1990s. I recently returned to find out what’s happened since.

    Trevor Fishlock Trevor Fishlock

    In Bringing Art to Wales: The Davies Sisters we set out on a quest. The Davies sisters of Llandinam in mid Wales have always seemed enigmatic. So rich, so shy, so reticent. We wanted to know them better, to tell their intriguing story, to describe the influences that drove them.

    We're back.

    For almost five decades, (we celebrate our 50th later this year), Week In Week Out, has been asking awkward questions, shining a light into dark corners and, depending on who you are, generally making a nuisance of itself. For those people we are – on the menu of BBC Wales programmes ...

    There is a book of photographs of Dylan taken in Laugharne during his last summer. These black and white photographs transport us back to that time in 1953. In some of the photographs Dylan is smiling. In others he is thoughtful, standing alone.
