Echo of the Dragon by ROB GITTINS
Five hundred years ago two Welshmen fulfilled the Arthurian prophecy and reclaimed the throne of England. One became Henry VII, the other sought retirement in a friary. But already a plot was in hand to turn back the pages of history - a plot that centres on the recluse himself. For Lord Rhys, the Battle of Bosworth has tragic memories.

One of the few flourishing industries left in Wales is its past. As pits and steelworks close, historians thrive as never before. But they have yet to take on the true spirit of an entrepreneurial society. Patrick Hannan tries to show them how to treat Wales as a product, a public relations exercise, a soap opera. Key questions asked are: who was the Lord Lucan of the 15th century and how did Lloyd George keep his trousers on long enough to win World War I? Producer HERBERT WILLIAMS

Blot on the landscape or national heritage?
