The Beeb were rocked last March when pay TV channel Premier Sports outbid them to spell the end of an era of free-to-air coverage of the competition in Wales. It left a gaping hole in BBC Wales’ sports output, but the corporation has decided to back the semi-professional tier by committing to a deal to screen its games for the season on BBC Two Wales. How Premiership matches will be received by viewers used to watching the full-time professional action of the PRO14 remains to be seen.

But in a press release announcing the coverage BBC Wales did their best to trumpet the prospect, labelling the coming season ‘the most exciting yet’ and emphasising the ‘historic rivalries’ and ‘local derbies’ that will be on offer. There was also the promise of ‘every fixture being meaningful and keenly fought’.

Merthyr captain Craig Locke celebrates with his team after winning the Principality Premiership last season It’s understood that with no other rugby to show, BBC Wales bosses came to the conclusion that they may as well give the Premiership a go, though there remains scepticism within Broadcasting House about its appeal.

Bilingual road markings near Cardiff Airport. In Welsh-speaking areas, the Welsh signage appears first. Although Welsh is a minority language, support for it grew during the second half of the 20th century, along with the rise of organisations such as the nationalist political party Plaid Cymru from and Welsh Language Society from The Welsh Language Act and the Government of Wales Act provide that the Welsh and English languages be treated equally in the public sector, as far as is reasonable and practicable.

Each public body is required to prepare for approval a Welsh Language Scheme , which indicates its commitment to the equality of treatment principle. This is sent out in draft form for public consultation for a three-month period, whereupon comments on it may be incorporated into a final version. Thereafter, the public body is charged with implementing and fulfilling its obligations under the Welsh Language Scheme. The list of other public bodies which have to prepare Schemes could be added to by initially the Secretary of State for Wales, from — , by way of statutory instrument.

Subsequent to the forming of the National Assembly for Wales in , the Government Minister responsible for the Welsh language can and has passed statutory instruments naming public bodies who have to prepare Schemes. Neither the Act nor secondary legislation made under it covers the private sector, although some organisations, notably banks and some railway companies, provide some of their information in Welsh.

The Welsh government’s Minister for Heritage at the time, Alun Ffred Jones , said, “The Welsh language is a source of great pride for the people of Wales, whether they speak it or not, and I am delighted that this Measure has now become law. I am very proud to have steered legislation through the Assembly which confirms the official status of the Welsh language; which creates a strong advocate for Welsh speakers and will improve the quality and quantity of services available through the medium of Welsh.

I believe that everyone who wants to access services in the Welsh language should be able to do so, and that is what this government has worked towards.

The withdrawal of established journalism from Welsh communities and its effects on public interest reporting. Dr Andy Williams, School of Journalism, Media, and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University In the first of two essays about local news in Wales, I draw on Welsh, UK, and international research, published company accounts, trade press coverage, and first-hand testimony about changes to the economics, journalistic practices, and editorial priorities of established local media.

With specific reference to the case study of Media Wales and its parent company Trinity Mirror I provide an evidence-based and critical analysis which charts both the steady withdrawal of established local journalism from Welsh communities and the effects of this retreat on the provision of accurate and independent local news in the public interest. Local newspapers are in serious and possibly terminal decline In Franklin found 1, local newspapers in the UK including Sunday and free titles ; by this had fallen by almost a quarter to 1, Franklin b.

The same research finds only a small number of new local titles launched over the same period. Industry executives have downplayed these figures, arguing that most of the closures were to free weekly titles, and that previous, more extreme, predictions around newspaper closures e.

The Village was settled in the s by Welsh immigrants who left us a rich culture and heritage we enjoy today. Over the ensuing years we have striven to preserve the record of those early settlers, maintaining a collection of memorabilia and documents for review by the public and researchers alike. A booklet describing a self-guided tour of the remaining homes and other historic sites dating to that era is available at the Village Hall.

It commemorates the legend that in a vision Merlin saw a white dragon kill a red dragon which rose again, symbolizing the failure of the Saxons to conquer Wales. In Elizabeth II granted the flag an “honorable augmentation”, the dragon being surrounded by a scroll bearing the words: The red dragon, one of the most ancient badges in the world, was brought to Britain by the Romans, who copied it from the Parthians, and it was subsequently used by both British and Saxon kings.

In recent times there have been a few people who have objected to the dragon standard because of its pagan origin, suggesting that the cross of St. David gold on a black background should be adopted as the national flag of Wales.

Spanning two floors, which are linked with an iconic, brutalist, poured-concrete staircase, the space illustrates how Sybarite has created a design language that can be integrated between the floors, walls and ceilings to develop a sculpted, luxurious environment and a recognisable brand. Sybarite co-founder Torquil McIntosh said: This design highlight connects the ceiling and the walls, with the curvaceous offset also allowing a gap for air-conditioning and subtly diffused lighting.

Aside from the multi-hued Kids’ Hall, each screen has its own single colour identity, such as red for the Love Hall, with seats matching the walls. To accommodate celebrities attending screenings, the SKP Cinema also has incorporated a Green Room and VIP event space with a brushed brass cladded bar, made up of serrated semicircles with an oriental black marble top.

In most cinemas, the design of the communal areas is hardly a consideration, with customers arriving just before their film starts and leaving immediately after the screening. While the marbles and metals in the communal areas are used across the SKP retail brand, Sybarite has varied the tone of those materials to ensure the SKP Cinema has a unique aesthetic. In addition, Sybarite has introduced fabrics and other materials that are not regularly used in SKP retail stores.
