I always heard it pronounced 'Howell' with the 'ow' as in owl. I don't speak Welsh but I know that the Welsh word for Wales is Cymru - which my mother who came from North Wales always pronounced as 'cumree'. There are different dialects in Welsh but I don't know them. Hywel Bennett was in "Eastenders" for a time as a baddy and was also in "Last of the Summer Wine" towards the end of its long run.

Like him or loath him he was an almost permanent presence, somewhere, on Saturday Night TV schedules for all of my formative years ..... and indeed well beyond too.

Triceratops,

"surprised he lasted that long."

Of course it is a surprise, having had all "that work" with all those girls...
Couldn't resist Tri and it was already in my "mind" from the moment I saw the message on TV with adjacent pictures...
It seems that the continual use of the "Apparat" (Nielsen asked for the colloquial English translation from German) helps against prostate related illnesses...

Kind regards from Paul.

PS: There was a comment today that he was together with three women at the same time. Some new kind of Sultan with his harem?
PPS: the moral philosopher Wink . Degradation of the female existence, which is many times, especially nowedays, more worthier than that of men. And after all it are they, who decide to...At least in normal Western countries...
PPPS: Read once the reasons why females weren't allowed to drive in Saudi-Arabia...

I hope "Heff" had a good lawyer draw up his will - I heard once that Groucho Marx put a clause in his will that if any of his beneficiaries complained about his or her share that beneficiary was to lose his/her inheritance.
