What do CenterParcs, Sky Sports and The Royal Horticultural Society all have in common? They’ve all accidentally omitted Anglesey from their official maps of the UK in the recent past.
It seems that despite being the largest island in the Irish Sea and the largest island of Wales, Anglesey remains a mystery to most and so one man is going to have to work his socks off to put it firmly back on the map.
Hosted by Wales and Anglesey’s very own favourite stand-up, Tudur Owen, this programme is one man’s mission to both rejoice in and roast the island he calls home.
In Episode 1 Tudur gives us a whistlestop tour of Anglesey history, from ancient invaders to the present day.
Written by Tudur Owen with additional material by Gareth Gwynn. Also featuring Gareth Pierce and Lisa-Jên Brown.
Recorded at Canolfan Beaumaris on Anglesey.

Alex Edelman's Peer Group
Nominated for this year’s main Edinburgh Comedy Award, and winner of the Newcomer in 2014, American comedian Alex Edelman is back for a second series of his show PEER GROUP in which he takes a comic look at what it’s like being a millennial today.
The first episode is all about his relationship with materialism and what millennials actually want to own, apart from - obviously - a house. He looks at how the internet has changed people's perceptions of owning things, and what things actually mean anything to millennials in a world where everything is disposable.
We also hear from Alex's "peer group" - comedians Alfie Brown, Moses Storm and Jak Knight, journalist Rebecca Nicholson and cultural commentator David Burstein.
It is written and presented by Alex Edelman, with additional material by Ivo Graham.
Producer: Sam Michell.

The Cold Swedish Winter
The fourth series of the comedy following the fortunes of a British comic who has married into a Swedish family and is building a new life in Scandinavia. The series is set and recorded on location in Sweden, written Danny Robins (co-creator and writer of the Lenny Henry comedy Rudy’s Rare Records), and stars Edinburgh Comedy Award-winning comedian Adam Riches along with a cast of Sweden’s most popular TV comedy actors. We catch up with Geoff (Adam Riches) and Linda (Sissela Benn) as the generous period of Swedish paternity leave comes to an end. It's time to discuss sending their son John to dagis (nursery school) and launching Geoff onto the unsuspecting Swedish job market. This means Geoff must come to terms with conflicting attitudes towards health and safety, the sinister undertones of Pippi Longstocking and what happens when the entire staff of a Swedish office ‘kicks off’. In his new, tiny, unpronounceable, Northern home-town of Yxsjö, Geoff confronts the Scandinavian practice of ‘death-cleaning’, the Mosquito Museum, white water canoeing and Swedish attitudes towards gender equality. His father-in-law Sten (Thomas Oredsson) becomes the voice of Geoff’s conscience and Gunilla (Anna-Lena Bergelin), his mother-in-law, helps him make a commercial. In this first episode, Geoff worries about trolls, mortality and poisoned blueberries.
