This weekend the Welsh Game Fair is held at Pembrey Country Park near Llanelli. According to the British Association for Shooting and Conservation shooting is worth £75 million a year to the Welsh economy and supports the equivalent of at least 2,400 full-time jobs. Rachael Garside meets the farmer who planted a woodland and diversified part of his land into a mecca for the Camddwr shooting society in mid-Wales. And Huw Jenkins takes a lesson in Clay Pigeons at Shooting School on the Lleyn.

The Living Taff project - compared with other Welsh rivers the Taff doesn't perhaps have the most romantic or inspirational image but a project is launched to celebrate the river from it's source in the Brecon Beacons National Park to its mouth in Cardiff.

And Eccentric Gin - Juniper and spring water are just two of the natural ingredients being used by a group of young brewers in the basement of a pub in Llantrisant.
