The day after a historic service at Westminster Cathedral to commemorate the life of St John Roberts, documentary programme Merthyr Meirionnydd (The Martyr of Meirionnydd) looks at the life story of the Trawsfynydd man who died for his Catholic faith.

Broadcaster Guto Harri follows the trail of the monk who died 400 years ago, discovering that the life of the man canonized by the Catholic Church was sometimes akin to a film thriller.
