Commissioned in 2002 from an idea by Fflic production staff, cariad@iaith:love4language originally involved members of the public who wished to learn Welsh, spending six weeks at Nant Gwrtheyrn language centre on the Llŷn Peninsula.
This evolved into a week-long live series, airing in 2004, in which seven celebrities of Welsh extraction - Janet Street-Porter, Ruth Madoc, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Amy Wadge, Steve Strange, Bernard Latham and Jamie Shaw - spent the week at Nant Gwrtheyrn.
In 2011, cariad@iaith:love4language was recommissioned, and launched on 8 July revealing Matt Johnson, Sophie Evans, Josie d'Arby, Colin Charvis, Helen Lederer, Rhys Hutchings, Melanie Walters and Lembit Öpik as the celebrities set to spend a week learning the language under the tutelage of Nia Parry and Ioan Talfryn at fforest eco-camp in west Wales.
cariad@iaith:love4language returned on 23 May 2012 with a new celebrity line-up, as CBeebies presenter Alex Winters; Scrum V and BBC Sports Wales presenter Lisa Rogers; tenor Wynne Evans – or Gio Compario from the GoCompare.com TV ads; Lucy Owen, news presenter; rugby player Gareth Thomas; former X-Factor contestant Lucie Jones; actor Robert Pugh and actress Di Botcher attempt to learn Welsh.
