In the autumn of 1972, a remote corner of North Wales became a safe haven for more than 1,000 Ugandan Asians who had been expelled from their country by its ruling dictator Idi Amin.
30,000 refugees came from Uganda to the UK and many settled at a camp that was created for them at an empty military base at Tonfanau near Aberdovey.
'Adopting the Dragon', is tonight's Wales this Week episode at 7.30pm.
The programme looks at the fascinating story of Wales' Ugandan Asian refugees.
And all of this week, Wales Tonight will feature the stories of the refugees who found safety here and the local volunteers who helped them.
