    Background: A West Wales' schoolmaster has achieved the rare distinction of winning the Bardic Chair at the National Eisteddfod for two years running. Today's ceremony at Carnarvon began with customary pageantry.

    Amid applause, the identity of the Bard is revealed -- Mr. T. Llew Jones, of Llandysul, in Cardiganshire; and as he stands and escort of bards makes its way towards him for the simple robing ceremony. Among them, for the first time, was actress Sian Phillips, newly admitted to the Gorsedd.

    For the large crowd in the pavilion this was today's main event, and in procession the village schoolmaster moves towards the platform to take up his Chair after the traditional cry of "Is there Peace?" and the crowd's response.
