The story of Arthur Owens, the Welshman who spied for both Germany and Britain before and during World War Two has become quite well known. His motives were always unclear and the web of intrigue that seemed to surround his various enterprises make him a fascinating character. But Owens was not the only...
A cold front will also bring a short spell of rain in the afternoon followed by clearer, colder air and a few showers.
I was away last week filming in New Quay, Ceredigion for the new series of Weatherman Walking, following in the footsteps of Dylan Thomas. Thankfully the weather was kind to us, yes a bit more sunshine would have been nice but at least it was dry with little wind which made filming easier.

"If you can remember the Sixties, then you weren't really there." I can't remember who said that (I tend to forget where I left my car keys these days) but I must challenge the allegation. I was there, and despite the inevitable onset of senility, I can still remember the most exciting decade of the...
Model railways! Boys – whatever their age – just love their toys!
As the evenings draw in and autumn gradually gives way to winter, preparation for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales' mid and north Wales tour is well underway.
Each year as people start to wear poppies and Remembrance Day gets closer my thoughts and research efforts become focused on helping others overcome their military based family history obstacles, and this year is no different.
Be prepared to be blown around this weekend as there's more heavy rain and strong winds in the forecast.
The athlete Steve Jones is one of those characters who are often overlooked by the press and public alike. He is quiet and modest about his achievements, but the fact remains that he is one of the most successful long distance runners ever produced in Britain.
