Cerys Matthews on Wales' referendum hopes

The people of Scotland will vote on Independence next year.
Whatever the result of the referendum, the campaign will have a profound effect on the other parts of the UK.
Wales has traditionally seen much lower levels of support for independence than Scotland.
In general only around 10% of voters have favoured breaking away - but the First Minister Carwyn Jones has argued that a Yes vote in Scotland would mean a fundamental change in the relationship between Wales and the remainder of the UK.
The Today programme heard the singer and broadcaster Cerys Matthews examine if the Welsh look enviously, or nervously, at the choice that Scottish voters have.
First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme on Thursday 11 July 2013.
