A Source for Life: there's water everywhere in Wales. Not only does it sustain wildlife, it's an integral part of the landscape. Our lakes, rivers and marshes are home to birds, fish and other creatures that we're familiar with – and more unusual species.
Iolo looks at the inhabitants of the wetlands and their place within the landscape.
We were really keen to film these creatures as they sounded facinating and look prehistoric. We got information from Simon Evans, at the Wye and Usk Foundation, that they will only be spawning under Boughrood bridge for a week or two at the beginning of June. So we had a short window. John and I went to film them on a sunny day not sure what we were going to be able to get.
