“My Secret Wales”

Ges i syndod mawr neithiwr tra oeddwn i gwylio BBC2 a welais rhaglen wych “My Secret Wales”.  Roedd stori am y capel yn Henllan.  Roedd y Capel wedi adeiladu gan y ‘prisoners of war’ Eidaleg yn ystod yr Ail Rhyfel Byd. Rhai blynyddoedd yn ôl roeddwn i lwcus iawn i ymweld â’r capel gyda grŵp o Gymdeithas Hanes Lleol Llandysul a’r Fro.  Mae’r capel yn lle ysbrydol iawn a roedd y bechgyn Eidaleg yn bechgyn arbennig iawn.  Rydych chi’n gallu gweld y clip ar y wefan BBC:

Roedd hi’n wych gweld “Contis” ar y teledu hefyd.  Maen nhw’n dod i’r Gwyl Fwyd Llandysul pob Haf.
I was really surprised last night when I saw a programme on BBC called “My Secret Wales” as they showed something that really is a secret, that is the Italian Chapel at Henllan. This was built by Italian Prisoners of War based at Henllan in the latter half of the Second World War.  I was lucky enough to visit the Chapel a few years ago with Llandysul Local History Society and thought it a very spiritual and special place.  The prisoners had very little  to decorate the chapel with, but by recycling tins, bartering fôr concrete, they created a very beautiful chapel.  If you missed it, the BBC are showing the clip at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/mid/sites/llandysul/pages/henllan.shtml
Long live BBC regional programmes! I think that in the future, there will not be so many of them.  Too expensive, which is really sad.
