Podcasts & Videos

On this page, you'll find links to some of the radio shows, podcasts and videos I've appeared in or worked on. I'll use the blog on the front page to flag up anything new, but these are links to bits and bobs that won't expire after only 30 days. Apologies in advance for any broken links - The internet is built on shifting sands.

Bull

John-Luke Roberts and I created and wrote this sitcom for GOLD starring Robert Lindsay, Maureen Lipman, Naz Osmanoglu and Claudia Jessie. Here's a playlist which includes the trailer, a behind the scenes feature and some best-bits.

Also, in episode two, Rupert Bull mentioned his website, so do make sure you check it out.

Little Book Documentaries - BBC Radio 4

I have presented two documentaries for BBC Radio 4 examining Welsh identity, language, culture and politics. The first, "Gareth Gwynn's Little Book Of Welsh Independence" was broadcast in 2014, ahead of the Scottish Referendum and was nominated for a Celtic Media Award in the Best Documentary category. The second, "Gareth Gwynn's Little Book Of Welsh Rock" was broadcast in 2015 and continues to cost me a fortune in records. Both shows are still available on the BBC Radio 4 website.

Sunday Afternoon Show - BBC Radio Wales

I present a regular Sunday afternoon show on BBC Radio Wales (as well as other bits and bobs when people are away). A link to the last few editions of the show, plus some best-bits, are available on my BBC Radio iPlayer page.

There are more best bits from the Sunday Show, various Saturday Shows and my "Twisted 2014" look back at the year on this Audioboom playlist.

The Now Show - BBC Radio 4

I have written for The Now Show regularly since 2010 and appeared on the show itself three times.

The News Quiz - BBC Radio 4

Having written gags for The News Quiz since 2009, I got to make this montage for the end of Sandi Toksvig's final show. There are certainly worse ways to spend a day than listening to 9 years of News Quizzes. And then, once I was finished, I put all the master tapes in the wrong boxes to really screw things up for the next person who tries.

Gareth Gwynn's Twisted History Of BBC Wales - BBC Radio Wales

In 2014, BBC Wales Television celebrated its fiftieth anniversary. To celebrate, I made a programme about 90 years of radio, and the BBC were too polite to ask for the money back. These are some of the best-bits.

The XFM Breakfast Show With Jon Holmes - XFM London

From 2013-15 I devised features and contributed topical gags, fake news stories, one-liners and sketches to this daily breakfast show. Podcasts and best bits can be found here.

Passing On - BBC Radio Wales

A short behind the scenes video about this sitcom series I wrote starring Keiron Self, Richard Ellis, Melangell Dolma, Katy Wix and Felicity Montagu and produced by Benjamin Partridge for BBC Radio Wales.

An article about the show was printed in the Western Mail.

Pantheon Of Heroes - BBC Radio Wales

With Elis James and Benjamin Partridge, I devised and co-wrote this sketch show for BBC Radio Wales about Welsh history starring Elis, Ben and Nadia Kamil. It sometimes crops up on BBC Radio 4 Extra and there are some clips here featuring Nadia Kamil as Bonnie Tyler, giving Eurovision a second go (music by Rhodri Viney) and a fact round-up of Wales' 1958 Football World Cup campaign:

I Love Wales - BBC One Wales

I wrote and presented the archive TV sections of this St David's Day show.

Armstrong And Miller - BBC One

This one was mine.

Do The Right Thing - Podcast

I was a panellist on Series 3, Episode 7 of this podcast - but make sure you listen to them all because they're great.

Boo Hoo, It's The News - Podcast

From 2009, a weekly topical comedy podcast presented by John-Luke Roberts and I. The podcasts can be downloaded directly from the Libsyn website or click on the link below to be taken to the "Boo Hoo" bit of iTunes.

The Roop And Tom Breakfast Show - XFM South Wales

Highlights from XFM South Wales' Breakfast Show...

Prior to their unsuccessful attempt at the world record for the fastest human wheelbarrow (100m), I oversaw Roop and Tom's demanding training regime:

Another failed world record attempt. This time, the number of eggs held in a single human hand. I'm afraid that this time round, the failure was partly my fault...
