Barry Welsh is Coming in your hand
Siadwel Returns for a third time...

Long before he invented much-loved Barry Welsh and Hugh Pugh, Sparkes started off in television in the ‘80s as one of the team behind BBC sketch show Naked Video.

Appearing alongside a cast that included Rab C Nesbitt stars Gregor Fisher and Elaine C Smith, as well as Welsh actress Helen Lederer, Sparkes’ creation was a perpetually befuddled geek with an ever-present sniff, resplendent in anorak and National Health Service specs whose weekly monologue – inevitably a bewildered take on coping with the vagaries of everyday life – was a highlight of the show.

Siadwell is returning to the BBC, thanks to Radio Wales, who have commissioned a third series which will be recording at the BBC Club in Cardiff this month in July. Get your tickets for a recording of the third series of Siadwel for BBC Wales

The random and very unofficial thoughts from Wales' favourite lost cause

SiadwelSiadwel Returned for a second time

John Sparkes’ much loved comedy character Siadwel returned to the BBC for the second time in 25 years.

In this new series Siadwel has a chat with the Reverend Harry Looyah and reminisces about Dim Ysmigi, the man who invented the ‘No Smoking’ sign.

He also pays tribute to Dai Horribly, the health and safety expert, who invented the Fire Exit and his gilrfriend Gravel poses naked for the ‘Western Male’ (not the newspaper, but the mens magazine for Haverford West)
