    Paul Fox, (Dictionary of national biography) describes him as 'the best and sometimes longest teller of stories'

    Huw Wheldon said 'Remember, be bold. Don't be afraid to fail. The whole point of television is not to avoid failure at all costs but to give triumph a chance.'

    Jane Wheldon is my wife's great great grandmother and is probably Sir Huw's grandfather's sister. My wife's maiden name is Anne Stanley Jones of Rhosgadfan. Any help with a 'link' would be appreciated.
