December 2018 - O'r Diwedd

O'r Diwedd 2018 is finished. S4C's annual look back at the year, which I co-write with Sian Harries and Tudur Owen (left) has been filmed, edited, and handed in - so we'd really appreciate it if nobody did anything newsworthy until 9pm on the 27th December. The finished show features guest appearances from Alun Saunders and Esyllt Sears and will be available afterwards (with subtitles) on S4C Clic and BBC iPlayer.

BBC Radio Wales will be repeating Gareth Gwynn's Twisted History of BBC Radio Wales over the Christmas period. The two episodes, which also feature Elis James, Nadia Kamil and a healthy chunk of the BBC Radio Wales archive, were originally made to celebrate the station's 40th anniversary, but will be broadcast again at 6.30pm on the 27th and 28th December and will then be available afterwards on BBC Sounds.

Also on BBC Sounds right now, all eight episodes of Ankle Tag, the sitcom I co-write with Benjamin Partridge, starring Elis James, Katy Wix and Steve Speirs, are also available to stream and download.

November 2018 - Beef and Beefs

Ankle Tag is now available on the BBC Radio 4 Comedy Of The Week Podcast. Episode 1 from Series 2 of the sitcom, which I co-write with Benjamin Partridge, is now on the feed - but if you then head to the website or BBC Sounds app, you can catch all 4 episodes, starring Elis James, Katy Wix and Steve Speirs - with a special appearance by Margaret Cabourn-Smith (who stood-in for Katy at the very last minute on episodes 3 and 4).

Tudur Owen - Where On Earth Is Anglesey is a brand-new two-part show by Tudur Owen about the island of Anglesey, actively combating the fact that it seems to be left off of maps with alarming frequency. I scripted-edited the show and the first part will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4 at 11pm on Tuesday 27th November, and will then be available on BBC Sounds and later on the BBC Flip Podcast Feed.

Beef And Dairy Network Podcast - I made a second appearance on Benjamin Partridge's Beef-based comedy podcast in Episode 41 as Alex Neon, curator of the Network's archive. In this edition, I explain the importance of the International Beef Library and the history of the handheld console, the Beef Boy. Featuring a storming performance as computer game enthusiast Matt Lees.

Twisted History - Both parts of this show, written and presented by me and produced by Sharif Shahwan, looking back at 40 years of BBC Radio Wales , are now available online and via the BBC Sounds app.

This was part of a huge amount of programming marking the station's 40th - and once you've caught-up with Twisted History, I'd personally recommend I Was There about the very first days of the station - featuring an interview with Vincent Kane about the fact he didn't get the breakfast show... And the second link to a programme on this blog-post containing a massive beef.
