Comedy mockumentary series for BBC Radio Wales.

The fictional life and times of wartime journalist Aneurin Davies is celebrated at long last.

Aneurin Davies was one of the most brilliant wartime journalists of his era, yet his name is relatively unknown - arguably the Greatest Welshman You've Never Heard Of.

Through Aneurin's archive recordings of the war effort at home, Radio Wales listeners meet the extraordinary people of Wales and their new and experimental ideas for fighting the Germans.

From variety entertainers keeping morale high to the excitement of the 'Lloyd George Waltz' that swept through village fĂȘtes, leading to a handful of serious injuries, third degree burns and a rise in 'fĂȘte brain-fever' - Aneurin Davies captured it all.
