I don't know how to put this, but... I'm kind of a big deal (1). As you can see on the left, that's me with Siân Lloyd. She is just one of the big-name celebrities who appears in the programme about me on S4C. Lloyd, Derek Brockway (2), Garry Owen, Gillian Elisa -- it's like some kind of Welsh-language version of a Dean Martin roast (3). Well, with only me drinking. And no Don Rickles.
The programme airs Tuesday at 21:00 on S4C and then again with English subtitles on Saturday at 21:15. Yes, I know I've told you all this before but I'm mentioning it again because I have news for those of you playing along outside of Wales.
I am told that the programme will be available via S4C's website. This means you won't have to buy a dodgy DVD copy from a Chinese street vendor (4). I'll put up a direct link as soon as one is available.
1) I once used this line around Geraint and he thought I was being serious. So, for him and the two other people who don't get that line, watch this.
2) I like to emphasize the word "rock" in Derek's name. If I were an anchor on "Wales Today" I would always introduce him by saying: "Here he is, Brockway like a hurricane..."
3) What the hell kind of a reference is that? I might as well draw witty allusions to "Hee-Haw."
4) Fact: More than 30 percent of the Chinese economy is fuelled by bootleg DVDs of Welsh-language television programmes.
