Patagonia with Huw Edwards

Huw Edwards meets the descendants of the pioneers who established a community in Patagonia 150 years ago, to see what remains of the culture their forefathers wanted to safeguard.

Huw Edwards fulfils a lifelong dream to explore Patagonia, and the unique attempt to preserve Welsh culture by isolating a Welsh community in one of the most remote and inhospitable places on earth. A hundred and fifty years after the pioneers arrived, Huw meets their descendants and asks what remains of the culture the forefathers wanted to safeguard.
