Badge Friday: HTV Cymru Wales Miri Mawr / Cantamil

This badge (from Rachel's collection) reflects two Welsh language childrens tv programmes broadcast on HTV Wales during the 1970s Miri Mawr and Cantamil.

Colourful and funky these badges are certainly reflective of the period, while the HTV Cymru Wales logo (stylised as a TV aerial) sets it off nicely.

I did a bit of a Google on the programmes themselves and one poster (who happens to share my surname) described the regional shows as a bit of a rough deal for younger viewers who didnt speak Welsh. Miri Mawr was apparently a magazine programme, while Cantamil was a game show in which kids advanced around a board by answering questions akin to Snakes and Ladders.

I'd be fascinated to hear from anyone who remembers these shows.
