Wonderous Wales

Wonderous Wales

The series that celebrates the people who live and work in and around the remarkable landscapes of Wales’s three National Parks returns – from the jagged heights of Snowdonia in the north, through to the mountains and moorlands of the Brecon Beacons, and the wild and rugged coast of Pembrokeshire. These places are not just a playground for tourists and adventurers, they’re also home to more than 80,000 people. Among them are families who have been here for generations and others who arrived just a few months ago. But all of them are proud to call their little piece of Wales ‘home’. In this episode, we meet Garry and his family on The Black Mountain in the Brecon Beacons. Lambing is in full swing, so it’s all hands on deck to keep a careful watch on this ever-expanding flock, with Garry’s three children – Owen, Dewi and Seren – getting stuck in to help deliver a new generation of lambs. Over on the Pembrokeshire coast, artist Charlotte Cortazzi heads for the stunning Broad Haven South Beach, where the sand provides a perfect canvas to create a spectacular work of art – a phoenix rising from the fire. This is art that few will get to appreciate, as just a few hours later, the glorious phoenix is washed away by the tide. Over on Anglesey in north Wales, mother-and-daughter climbing team Libby Peter and Zoe Wood take on the intimidating Mask of the Red Death. And there’s a buzz about the Brecon Beacons when bee farmers Gruffydd and Angharad move their hives up the mountain in search of a new sweet sensation.
