Podcasts

The Xennial Dome (2021)

The Xennial Dome is a podcast presented by Esyllt Sears and I all about those born between 1977 and 1985. Have a listen on the player below and then why not get in touch with us on MySpace! Genuinely.

Documentaries

I have presented several documentaries for BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Wales examining Welsh identity, language, culture and politics, many of which are still available on BBC Sounds.

Gareth Gwynn Declares Independence From Wales (2020) , The Greatest Ever Faker (2016) , Gareth Gwynn’s Little Book Of Welsh Rock (2015) and Gareth Gwynn’s Little Book Of Welsh Independence (2014).

The following video, featuring clips of the show, was made to promote Harry Secombe - Unsung Comedian (2021).

This month marks 100 years since the birth of Welsh legend
Sir Harry Secombe.

This is a tribute to his vital role in the creation and success of
The Goon Show.

Including some fantastic images from @BBCArchive...

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.

Archive Shows

Gareth Gwynn’s Alternative Archive - BBC Radio 4 (2019)

Kicking-off with an actual scientist explaining the Many Worlds theory, Gareth Gwynn’s Alternative Archive was the first Archive On Four to look, not backwards, but sideways - as we listened-in to radio stations from alternative universes and other dimensions.

It’s an hour, which is quite long - but there are 113 other voices in it - so I’m pretty well diluted.

The Now Show - BBC Radio 4 (2011-2019)

I have appeared on The Now Show five times times. Audio from my first three appearences are on this Audioboom playlist and the fourth co-incided with the 50th Anniversary of BBC Local Radio…

Just A Minute: 50 Years In 28 Minutes - BBC Radio 4 (2017)

I produced this show for BBC Radio 4 to celebrate 50 years of Just A Minute, cutting together archive episodes and creating exchanges between panellists that could never have happened in real life.

The Gareth Gwynn Show - BBC Radio Wales (2010-2017)

I was a regular presenter on BBC Radio Wales for seven years. A handful of best-bits can be found on the BBC Radio Wales show page
