A programme for
St. David's Day by Cledwyn Hughes with Osian Ellis (harp)
Produced by Wilbert Lloyd Roberts
The author lives in a remote part of Wales-a place where folklore and folk song linger. It is here that he wanders alone and meets the old, who celebrate this day with traditional songs, and the young, who bring strange new words into the ancient language. He thinks of his own childhood, and of the Saint of his people-the Saint on whose day a new spring is militant in bud and root and stem.
