Today Welshmen from all parts will be flocking to Pembrokeshire to attend the National Eisteddfod of Wales. They will explore interesting places in and around Fishguard, and many will discover for the first time the glory that is Pembrokeshire. In this programme listeners will be taken to the southern part of this beautiful county, and some historical episodes enacted in South Pembrokeshire will be recalled and dramatised.
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.
