In this episode of Tudur's TV Flashback, he boldly goes where no-one has gone before - to explore the funniest and quirkiest TV moments within the world of science.
A year 2000 report from Carmarthen visits one of the first pubs to put a computer in their bar. For the small cost of a pound, customers can surf the internet and check their emails whilst enjoying a drink. Founded by two Welsh businessmen, the new company, Cyberpub, hopes that hundreds of more pubs will follow suit.
A news report from 1980 introduces William Morgan, who lives in a farmhouse in Pontarfynach. He uses a homemade generator and turbine to create his own hydro-electricity that lights and warms his home and livestock, saving approximately £400 a quarter on electric bills.
Other archive clips include a Swansea man who's building an aeroplane in his garden, an apparent UFO sighting in Pencoed and TV presenter Gaz Top speaks to the couple who built an observatory in Knighton.
