We also have the Ffermio program with Daloni and Meinir and some bloke called Alun
Alun comes from near you, doesn't he. Not your brother or something is he? [before I start insulting him ]
No he lives in our village but farms up towards Bala. Top bloke.
Iesu!!! Forget the Welsh Hills, it's more like Hollywood Hills, with all you celebrities living there (@GTB included).
Alun comes across, as being a very genuine, down to earth chap. A good actor as well.
The 20th anniversary special edition, was on Monday night. Brought a tear to my eye, when they were recalling the tragedy of Foot and Mouth. Really made me think, where on earth did those two decades go?
I do miss the summary of market prices (beef, lamb, milk etc.) that used to be shown, at the end of each episode. It's all online, and readily available I know, but it was interesting to keep up to date, with how the other sectors were performing.
Ffermio is a programme, I suspect, a lot of our English farming friends, wish Countryfile would turn (back) into.
Probably one of the better programmes that S4C air. As a farming nation, we're very fortunate to have such programmes, in the language of heaven.
Has anyone else noticed that wherever Dai visits always have the best stock he's ever seen?
What about FF FF, (Fferm Ffactor)? I find myself watching it, but still think it is awful; that written, some neighbours were on it and it was amusing watching their 'progress'.
Awful program. Absolutely dire. They approached me to go on it once, I told them I'd rather buy my own pickup.
he's got to be one of the most ignorant people on tv
he spoke in the discussion grp annual dinner. always thought he was a bit of a plonker but seemed a decent bloke
When you consider we have Cefn Gwlad, Ffermio, Fferm Ffactor (dire as it is) Y Sioe Fawr, and Y Ffair Aeaf (coverage from the RWAS Show & Winter Fair) and the occasional program following the smaller regional shows during the summer, we are very lucky in Wales as far as Agricultural TV coverage goes... Dai apparently swears like a blind cobbler when off camera
I've met Dai a few times and he's a nice enough chap to talk with but I must admit I'm not a huge fan of Cefn Gwlad.
And the odd specials like Bugeiliad Olaf Ewrop last week.
I enjoyed that. Thanks for the link.
I think they missed an open goal there. Although it was OK, that programme had HUGE potential. It could easily, have been turned into a great 3-part series...for not much extra work. I would have gladly watched, a whole episode on those Romanian Sheepdogs, who protected the flock and chased those wolves(?) away.
You should see him in action, filming. He switches into character instantly, transferring into what you see on the screen, walking towards the camera [as they do] with a confident stride and a speech seemingly conjured up in the last five seconds, but probably pre-planned. No rehearsing, just GO, Bang! Its in the can!
No more than I do and less than many.
The champions for swearing that I've yet to see beat were women farm workers in Scotland from the fishing town of Dunbar. Literally every other word was a swear word.
Lovely people mind you!
"Bachan bachan!" "Werth ei weld" "Pleser gweld nhw"
Amazing. I would be stuttering like a virgin in a brothel, in front of the camera.
I think what I like about him most, is that there's no airs and graces with him. He looks as if he's just walked in front of the camera, from working on the farm. I respect him for not pretending to be someone he's not - usually presenting, whilst wearing a scruffy 'Cymru' hoodie and not a Barbour Tweed Jacket. Totally and utterly refreshing.
Surprised you haven't been featured on one of these programs duck... although it's possible nobody else would get a word in..
