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.

Gilbert John takes a look at the show's history at its permanent home.
