    Why the Dutch love bicycles

      Before the Second World War, the main means of transportation used by the Dutch was bicycles. But that changed in the 1950s and 1960s with the dramatic increase in the number of cars.

    Bitter poet

      RS Thomas (1913-2000) is another world-renowned poet in Wales after Dylan Thomas in the 20th century.
