Y Royal Charter
On a stormy autumn night 150 years ago the 2,700 tonne steam and sailing ship Royal Charter sank off Moelfre on Anglesey on her journey home from Melbourne, Australia to Liverpool.
Local boy, Bedwyr Rees, who has family connections with the tragedy, takes a new look at the story in the S4C documentary Royal Charter.

Many ships, submarines and their passengers and crew have ended their days on this treacherous coastline.
