The Glamorgans - all of them, east, west and mid - are not usually considered the most beautiful parts of Wales. Despitethe wonderful views over the Severn estuary to the heights of Exmoor in Devon, there's a bit too much industry and far toomuch capital city to be a tourist attraction, and the lack ofmountains doesn't help either.

We start off with some films about the saints who brought Christianity to this part of Wales.
