The Royal Welsh Show celebrates 50 years at its permanent home at Llanelwedd in Powys this year.
Before that it travelled around Wales but a series of events marred by bad weather made organisers rethink.
Landmark events included a visit by Archbishop Desmond Tutu during South Africa's apartheid era.
