A Summer in Wales trail

First of BBC Wales's eight-part character and story-led series that chronicles summer 2012 in Wales.

In North Wales, there's cause for celebration on the tiny tidal island of Cribinau, where one adventurous bride and groom are set to wed. But with guests warned to bring wellies, will time and tide play ball?

In West Wales, it's make or break for first time hoteliers Owen and Phillipa Gale. They've invested their life savings into transforming a tired country hotel into a luxury retreat. But do these novices have what it takes to survive in the competitive world of hospitality?

In South Wales's Barry Island, it looks like the writing's on the wall for the iconic pleasure park. The wash-out summers of recent years mean that visitor numbers are down. Will this year's record-breaking rainfall be the final nail in the fun fair's coffin?
