ADOLYGIAD - (Philip Wyn Jones, GOLWG Ionawr 25, 1996)

Mae gwrando ar ddrama radio dda yn brofiad pleserus. Os yw'r ddrama'n werth ei pherfformio, yr actorion yn argyhoeddi, yr effeithiau sain yn creu'r awyrgylch ac yn ychwanegu ato, a'r cyfarwyddwr yn gadarn wrth y llyw - dyna i chi wledd.
Felly roedd hi gyda drama Geraint Lewis, Yr Ornest Olaf, ar Radio Cymru, a John Ogwen (sic) yn cyfarwyddo. Hoffwn i ganmol yr actorion unigol ond fedra' i ddim - doedd y cast ddim yn y Radio Times a'r cyfan wnaeth y cyhoeddwr ar y diwedd oedd rhestru'r actorion heb egluro pa rannau y buon nhw'n eu chwarae. Cwbl anfoddhaol.
Drama oedd hi am gyn-focsiwr - meddai fe - yn cael llety dros dro gyda theulu dosbarth canol. Roedd y wraig yn 'Gristion' a'r gwr yn 'Sosialydd' ac yn ogystal â'r stori ddirgelwch - pwy oedd y dyn rhyfedd yma? Roedd nifer o bwyntiau teg yn cael eu gwneud am ddaliadau gwleidyddol, cydwybod ac ati. Da iawn.

REVIEW - (Philip Wyn Jones, GOLWG January 25, 1996)

Listening to a good radio play is a pleasurable experience. If the play is worth performing, the actors convincing, the sound effects creating the right atmosphere and adding to it and a strong director at the helm - then you have a feast.
This was the case with Geraint Lewis's play Yr Ornest Olaf (The Final Contest), on Radio Cymru, with John Ogwen (sic) directing. I'd like to praise the individual actors but I can't - there was no cast list in the Radio Times and the only thing the announcer gave us at the end was a list of the actors without explaining who played what. Totally unacceptable.
It was a play about an ex-boxer - so he says - having a temporary sanctuary with a middle-class family. The wife was a 'Christian' and the husband a 'Socialist', as well as the mystery story - who was this strange man? A number of pertinent points were made regarding political beliefs, conscience and the like. Very good.
