Happy Birthday BBC Cymru Wales

Last weekend, BBC Cymru Wales celebrated it's fiftieth anniversary. There were programmes all over BBC Wales television and radio to mark the occasion, including one presented by myself - Gareth Gwynn's Twisted History of BBC Wales. The show featured Elis James, Nadia Kamil, Chris Day, David Woodward, Bethan Elfyn, Jason Mohammed, Alan Thompson and Mal Pope who all knew they were going to be in the show and a host of other BBC Radio Wales names who didn't.

The whole hour-long show is currently on iPlayer. It'll then be broken down into half-hour episodes and repeated in future weeks.

I should say that one unexpected highlight of making the programme was this appearance as part of BBC Two Wales' retro-continuity on the Saturday evening.

I'd never seen that logo before. The campaign to bring it back starts here. It's even better than those little birds.
