Prince Madoc and the Welsh Indians
Did a Welsh Prince, Madoc ap Owain Gwynedd , discover America 300 years before Columbus? Queen Elizabeth I used the legend to justify her claim to America over that of Philip II of Spain. And even as late as the 18th century at least 15 Indian tribes were identified as Welsh - descendants of the Madoc expedition.
John Evans , a young Welsh minister, in quest of Welsh Indians in 1796, became the first white man to reach the Mandans, whose descendants believe the tribe was brought across the Great Water by Lone Man -who was white!
In this programme, filmed in America, Professor Gwyn Williams of University College, Cardiff, examines the Madoc legend. Narrator PHILIP MADOC

NICK ROSS , HAROLD WILLIAMSON This week: Welcome to Britain
Some would-be immigrants to Britain must sense a special irony in the welcoming sign at London Airport - assuming they can even read it. Maybe the immigration officer is suspicious - he's paid to be. Too wealthy to be a ' student '? Too poor to be a holiday ' visitor '? Anyway, the immigrant (plus his British passport) is now travelling to the Home Office detention centre at Harmondsworth.
Ben Lewin 's controversial BFI film looks at the way families are split, at the desperation, at the file-shuffling appeal process, and at the pushy Mr Fix-it , who will try to cut through the red tape of the immigration laws - at a price.
