    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.

  3. WIWO: The Journey to Jihad

    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.

    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.

  5. Week In Week Out: Making waves in Cardiff Bay

    Tuesday 3 June 2014, 10:32

    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.

  7. Bringing art to Wales: The story of the Davies sisters

    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 ...

    To mark 100 years since his birth, A Poet in New York portrays the final days of Dylan Thomas’ life, and with such an infamous story comes a great responsibility.

    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.

    Benjamin Zephaniah Benjamin Zephaniah

    Can Dylan Thomas do for poetry what The Choir did for music? Dub-Poet Benjamin Zephaniah thinks so. Exclusion from school and a spell in a borstal made him indifferent to poetry until he read Dylan’s Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night. Now he wants to show others how poetry can turn your life around...

    As part of the Weatherman Walking series of programmes, I have walked in the same footsteps as Dylan Thomas. To be honest, I didn’t realise he wrote so many poems. I knew about his work Under Milk Wood from my school days but hadn’t really revisited his poems since.
