Cofio `Dolig Teulu Ni

From the gifts to the decorations, and from the television screen to the food on the dinner table, over the last hundred years the way we celebrate Christmas in Wales has been completely transformed. This is an opportunity for families to re-visit one Christmas day in the history of their family, and behind the tinsel and turkey, we will reveal the story and situation of their ancestors at the time. In this programme, two families re-create a Christmas Day from their family history - one family. This programme is available with English subtitles.

And the biggest question of all - will there be Christmas this year?
