    Very good programme.

    Wales churns out so many quality bands... it's about time the media in Wales caught on and treated the public to it.

    To be fair, S4C have listened to the viewers suggestions and are to be congratulated for this programme. I suggest you send your appreciations here:-

    Yes indeed! As someone who works as a producer and has put forward several ideas for brass banding progs, the more who do this the better!!
