On 1 March 2024 - St David's Day - we launched on YouTube some of our favourite recorded-live views from around Wales premiering our slow-TV and ASMR broadcast stream, designed for maximum relaxation and wellbeing: Chill Cymru.

Maybe you're not able to be in Wales, and you're really feeling the hiraeth for the country. Or maybe you're already here, but looking for some quiet scenes to take a break with. Whoever you are, wherever you are, croeso i bawb, you're all welcome here with us.

Each broadcast will be around an hour long, so if you need a break during the day, we'll be here with some leisurely views to keep you company. Join us for 5 minutes, or have us on in the background for the whole day for a serene day of meditative viewing.
