New series: The Beacons Uncovered

The Brecon Beacons are one of the most visited places in Wales.

A wild landscape of tumbling rivers and iconic peaks and a designated National Park for the last sixty years.

At 886 metres, Pen y Fan is the highest point in southern Britain

In a new series, we meet the men and women who call this landscape a way of life.

Filmed throughout the year we follow them through the depths of winter, to the height of tourist season in the summer.

Every time you look at the mountain it completely changes.

It's so lovely when it is lovely... and it's horrible when it is horrible!
