Welsh star of musical theatre Connie Fisher sets off on a musical mystery tour across Wales in new BBC Cymru Wales programme Connie's Musical Map of Wales.

In the first episode, which you can see on Monday, Connie journeys from Cardiff to Treorchy. She sings in the Millennium Stadium before a Welsh rugby international, meets Tom Jones' self-proclaimed biggest fan, joins Max Boyce at the Parc and Dare Theatre and contributes to a rehearsal by the Cory Brass Band.

Connie said of the programme, "I met such a variety of colourful characters on my journey across Wales.

"Talent is pouring out of Wales and I caught up with a great mix of current Welsh musicians - I even conducted the Cory Brass Band and attempted to play the trombone!"
