The Black Chair

Mab visits Hedd Wyn’s family farm in Snowdonia to explore the landscape and culture he came from, to see the 1917 chair which remains there intact, and talks to chair winners Twm Morys and Mererid Hopwood, and historian Aled Eirug, to find out why the event still holds such significance in Wales.
