Ysgol Ddawns Anti Karen

September 11, 2017

The force of nature called Karen Pritchard is back and ready for another fun-filled series full of energy and emotion as she teaches dance to over a hundred girls aged between 4 and 18. After years rushing between schools and village halls, Karen is desperate to fulfil her dream of opening her own dance studio. However, that’s easier said than done for the busy mother and wife who’s sorting out the pom-poms while getting ready to be a grandmother again. The only snag is that the baby is due at the same time as a huge competition in Blackpool!

A look at the creative and practical processes behind one of the most ambitious opening concerts at the National Eisteddfod.

Codi Hwyl: Brittany

June 5, 2017

Sailing the high seas to Brittany

One of the most colourful television partnerships will venture further than they’ve ever done before in a brand new series of Codi Hwyl (Raise the Sail), starting Wednesday, June 14 on S4C.

The new series follows the adventures of the popular actor from Anglesey, John Pierce Jones, and Dilwyn Morgan, the comedian and entertainer from Bala, as they sail from Cardiff to Brittany.

In the first episode, John and Dilwyn sail their boat Mystique from Cardiff across the Channel to the small harbour of L’Aber Wrac’h in Brittany – a trip that took them three days.

From L’Aber Wrac’h they headed for Brest, one of the largest natural harbours in Brittany. Landerne (Landerneau in French) was the next destination before sailing for Douarnenez, made famous in a song by Welsh music legend, Meic Stevens. The last stop before returning to Wales was Konk Kerne (Concarneau), where John and Dilwyn took part in the Blue Nets Festival, a celebration honouring the fishing traditions of the area.

As John and Dilwyn have now made several series of Codi Hwyl together, is there a danger one of them is going to throw the other overboard?

Un peth yw coginio i’r teulu, peth arall yn llwyr yw coginio gyda’r teulu mewn cystadleuaeth!

Mae S4C am gynnig cyfle i deulu o bedwar i ennill gwyliau tramor mewn gwesty moethus, yn mwynhau bwyd syfrdanol. Ond i ennill y wobr fawr bydd rhaid trechu teuluoedd eraill.

Gall y teulu fod yn unrhyw gyfuniad, Mam, Tad, Nain, Taid, Chwaer, Brawd, Cefndryd, ond bydd rhaid cael o leiaf un plentyn yn rhan o’r tîm. Rhaid i’r cogydd gorau arwain y teulu fel prif gogydd tŷ bwyta. O gofio fod gan bron bob teulu un cogydd da, bydd marciau ychwanegol i’w gael wrth weld y cogyddion salaf yn gwella.
