What Tom taught me is that it really is possible, if you have a singular talent and a huge amount of confidence, to go out and create the life you've imagined for yourself - even if that life is very different from the one you've been leading - and yet remain the warm, regular guy you were when you set off.
In their national anthem Land of My Fathers, the Welsh sing of their love for the land as opposed to a monarch, and as a man of Welsh extraction I'...
It's that time again. The starting pistol is set to sound on another Assembly Election and politicians are about to start their customary mass exodus from Cardiff Bay to join the campaign trail.
Whilst discrete programmes to prevent emotional difficulties or support social and emotional learning may be successful in some schools, no single programme is going to be the magic wand for all children in all schools. Rather what is needed now is a new coordinated approach which combines different areas of activities and integrates all policies, staff and external professionals.
What makes this year's Six Nations so exciting is match-ups like these, match-ups that will potentially go down in rugby folklore, and I personally cannot wait for the theatre, the action to begin. A world of pain lies in wait for the defences of both teams and when these two titans have the ball, prepare for the ground to shake.
The Swansea says NO to Islamophobia event will take place on March 20th day before the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Over 200 people are expected to attend this event and with the Welsh Assembly election set for May 6th Swansea MEND will be looking to address and work with political parties and candidates to tackle Islamophobia in Wales.
With the Wales Bill making its way through Westminster, the ERS are laying down a challenge for parties to get behind proposals for revitalising democracy in Wales, with the launch of 'Breathing New Life into Politics'. It's the first of three manifestos being published ahead of May's Assembly elections.
Together, we delivered on our promises. Extra jobs, more money for schools - we did what we said we would do. Today represents the half-way point on our journey, on that decade of delivery. And so today I make six new promises to you, the people of Wales.
Holly McCarthy Theatre is a form of entertainment that continually pushes boundaries. In a quest to break down barriers for actors and audiences, on...
It would be wrong for broadcasters in Wales to exclude the Greens and Ukip. Their support has grown significantly since the last Assembly elections. And both parties are in the race to secure their first Assembly Members this May. It's only right that they should face the scrutiny of the public and other parties.
As we grow older, we tend to hide the cantankerousness and innocence that formed such a large part of our youth. Perhaps social convention, or some vague idea of acting grown up, forces us to mask these ostensibly childish attributes.
The 'power' of nature is everywhere - volcanoes bursting from beneath the earth's crust, lightning turning the world white for a split second or a lio...
On a visit to Wales last year, Barack Obama was blown away - praising the country for its "extraordinary beauty, wonderful people and great hospitality". It's easy to see why he was so impressed: with medieval castles, rugged cliffs and grassy plains, Wales offers myriad opportunities for escaping into history and nature.
Congratulations to the Republic of Ireland, on their qualification for Euro 2016. It will be good to have the Irish at a major tournament again. I ha...
Is it down to bad luck that Wales have experienced so many injuries in their backs? or is it the pre-season conditioning that has cost Wales, the intensive training which has led to over exertion in matches, resulting in injury?
We in the west can't afford for China to go into deep recession -the country's government is struggling to control this current economic sneeze but I am confident that it will.
