Gwlad yr Astra Gwyn (Cyfres 1)
The light entertainment series Gwlad yr Astra Gwyn has proved extremely popular with S4C’s audiences and SAIN have just released a DVD of the first series.
The series is set entirely within a taxi where we get to meet a myriad of characters driven around by gullible driver Trefor – who is played by Rhodri Meilir who will be familiar to audiences of the BBC show My Family. Trefor first appeared on our screens as part of the Ddoe am Ddeg series but his popularity saw S4C commission a six part series for Trefor and we then got to know his passengers a bit more – from the feisty Lisa to randy Vera and Jim the local head case, to Elen who hates Trefor and Leanne who love him, just that he’s too naïve to notice! All Trefor’s passengers are tinged with an element of sadness, but Trefor’s optimism to everything and everyone around him is tangible and he’s happy whatever happens.
