This year's BBC production, A Poet in New York, felt like a sentimental backwash of Titanic proportions; the recent BBC Wales remake of Under Milk Wood also fell unfortunately short, so short that one Twitter commentator quipped it felt like an advert for Welsh lamb.
Welsh Labour have labelled our calls for a Keogh-style Inquiry as "politically motivated." How can it be politically motivated to give patients and people the chance to have their say alongside those of our health professionals?
Are we asking for radical change to the constitution of the UK? No - we're asking for a truer democracy, one where everyone gets and feels involved in the creation of their community. By returning the power to change things to those that need it most, this could well be seen as a great change so the question becomes 'Are we asking for radical change?' Yes - we're asking for a truer democracy.
There are some fantastic days out in Wales' Historic Past. Perhaps take in the sea air along parts of the stunning Wales Coast Path, soak up the culture at World Heritage Sites and connect with nature in National Parks?
At the same stage in his career, Leon Jeanne was a highly hyped, pacey, skillful midfielder with the world at his feet. He had a few off-field issues, but City took a chance on him. Now he plays for Weston-Super-Mare. Nothing against Weston-Super-Mare. It's a nice place. I visited once. But let's hope Morrison doesn't go the same way.
Be in no doubt - the decisions taken in Scotland will have profound implications on all of us. In Wales, we want you to stay. You help us give balance to our United Kingdom in culture, as much as in economics.
On paper, for the 2014/15 season Cardiff City probably have one of the strongest squads the Championship has ever seen... Ole Gunnar Solksjaer showed us last season how much he enjoys tinkering with personnel, formation and tactics. He's going to have a field day trying to select a team from around 32 serious candidates. For what it's worth, here is my pick.
From the outside, Oxford seems impervious to change... The depiction of the university as a hidebound institution content to stay locked in its ivory tower, however, is misguided. The university is champing at the bit for reform, yet there are some areas in which it is found lacking.
Pensions are a major conversation point at the moment, since George Osborne announced dramatic changes in this year's budget. But what exactly is so different from what went before? And why all the fuss?
The Wales Government is too feeble in its outlook to forge a way through Westminster ideology and strike out for what is good for Wales... Elected politicians seem to be more than happy to let this stupidity persist, denying us all the prosperity and energy security others are eagerly grasping.
It is different putting on the Welsh vest compared to the British vest, and being rivals with athletes who are normal on the same team as you. But that is all part of what makes the Commonwealth Games extra special and to me it's as special as the Olympics. I was fourth in 2006, third in 2010 so this time I want to go even better...
The public persona of Thomas, embodied in Brinnin's book, is often the focus of articles concerning the writer and this year, on the centenary of his birth, one can expect plenty more of the same.
We want to work with the government to support this vulnerable section of our society. It's only through cooperation that we can halt the cycle of intergenerational offending and improve the future for these children. This is an issue that has been cast into the shadows for too long. It's time we brought it into the light.
Here's a thing. The UK will stay in the EU after 22 May - with or without UKIP MEP's. Even if we did leave the EU some day, we would still have to trade on EU terms, and leaving the EU within the next five years would be disastrous for Wales.
In the last 17 months a blaming culture and racist attitude has damaged the lives and reputation of thousands of Romanians in the UK. The British public was continuously served with scaremongering about Romanians who, in their vast majority, are hard working people, honest, committed, pay taxes and contribute to the growth of this country.
When all the scientists on the International Panel for Climate Change agree that the planet is on course for a four-degree warming - caused in the main by human activity, and this warming will be 'severe, pervasive and irreversible', you would think that the European election might just be based on what the political parties would do about it.
