'Breuddwyd y telynor,
Yn llanc yng Nghymru gynt,
Oedd mynd i rodio'r gwledydd,
Yn rhydd ar ddedwydd hynt;
A mawrion bethau'r byd,
A dysgu ei dyriau,
A'i geinciau gorau i gyd.'

'Daeth cawod o dywod dig
Ag anffawd i dref Genffig'
Mae pawb a deithiodd mewn trÃªn neu fodur rhwng Caerdydd ac Abertawe wedi sylwi ar y bryniau tywod sydd rhwng y ffordd fawr a'r mÃ´r gerllaw Margam. O dan y bryniau hyn y claddwyd dinas Cenffig, un o brif drefi Morgannwg yn y Canol Oesoedd.
Yr oedd castell a marchnad ac eglwys a llawer o dai o fewn muriau'r dref, ond fe lyncwyd y cyfan gan y tywod. Erbyn heddiw nid oes dim ond darn o dÅµr y castell yn y golwg.
Yn y rhaglen hon rhoddir brasolwg ar fywyd Cenffig pan oedd y ddinas yn ei bri, a cheisir dangos hefyd beth a ddywaid Hanes am y modd y claddwyd hi yng nghrombil y tywod.

E. J. PLAISTED
E. J. Plaisted is a product of the South Wales coalfields, having worked underground for twenty-five years, until the lock-out of 1926, when he was obliged to look for work in other directions. His endeavours have unfortunately not been successful, for he has been unemployed for the past five years His interest in politics, both local and national, which he developed from an early age, has, however, been stimulated, for in addition to having contested two Parliamentary Elections, the Isle of Thanet in 1929 and Salisbury in the General Election last November, he has a seat on the Bristol City Council. Tonight he will recall some of the interesting episodes which have occurred during the time he has lived in South Wales and the West of England.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
