Back to his roots; We love BEST TV.

Byline: Jen Rodger & Neil Batey

NATIONAL TREASURES OF WALES

Tue BBC4 8.30pm

His name could not be any more Welsh and he's just made another documentary about the country, but Griff Rhys Jones still feels embarrassed that he's not Welsh enough!

"I left Cardiff [where he was born] when I was a baby and was brought up in Epping, so gradually my connections faded away," admits Griff, 60.

In his new four-part series, Griff looks at the complexities and conflicts involved in looking after some of Wales' best-loved national treasures, including Plas Newydd in Anglesey and Tredegar House in Newport.
