Last year marked the 60th anniversary of the creation of Snowdonia National Park.
This first Welsh National Park was about conserving the past. But, six decades on, does it still have a role to play?
That’s the question Wales This Week asked on the night of the anniversary, October 18.
We filmed across the park with attractions such as the Welsh Highland Railway and the Pen-y-Gwryd pub where the Mount Everest team based themselves for their training ahead of their 1953 ascent.
We also visited Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue, Graig Wen on the Mawddach estuary and the couple behind the Baavet duvet.
The 23-minute programme is available to watch here.
