Cameras follow the team as they launch a new initiative - a virtual walk around Wales hosted by BBC Weatherman Derek Brockway. Meanwhile the Corporate Team try to avoid an international incident triggered by a promotional can of dirt.

Further details

Cameras follow new Wow! Wales CEO Elaine Gibbons as she hits upon an idea for a viral video to get people excited about Wales, whatever the weather.

She invites BBC weather presenter Derek Brockway to make a virtual walking tour from the comfort of a TV studio, but the weatherman's sunny disposition is thoroughly tested by Elaine's hands-on approach.
