Thursday 13th July 2006 11.00 pm to 11.30 pm ITV1 Wales

The Battle of the Somme during the First World War was one of the bloodiest and most devastating conflicts in British military history.

It claimed the lives of thousands of Welshmen and wiped out a generation of sportsmen, including Wales Rugby Captain Johnnie L. Williams.

Ninety years on, the current Wales Rugby Captain, Gareth Thomas makes an emotional pilgrimage back to the Somme and to Mametz Wood to see where his counterpart was killed.

In the course of making the programme Gareth Thomas made his own discovery about his family history – one of his great uncles was in fact killed at Mametz Wood in 1916.

THE FIRST FIFTEEN is an ITV Wales production. It is produced and presented by Jonathan Hill.
