Jon Gower continues his search for stories and storytellers. This week he meets a barman from Brechfa, a poet from Cameroon and a harpist from Dinas Mawddwy to hear tales of legendary beasts, dice, mice and racehorses.

Jon explores the origins of the tales he's told, asking his storytellers where they heard their first stories and who they heard them from. And, as he hears new stories, tiny stories, ancient legends and modern fables Jon asks to what extent we're still a storytelling nation.
