Presented by Jonathan Davies and interspersed with interviews from Dai Smith, Vivien Jenkins, Clive Rowlands and Robert Jones, this double video traces the ebbs and flows of the dragons from the foundation of the Welsh Rugby Union in 1881.

Shortly after the inception, the first decade of Welsh dominance started, sparked off by an epic defeat of the touring All Blacks in 1905. The next period of Welsh dominance was some years later - the great team of the 1970's, Gareth Edwards, JPR Williams, Phil Bennett etc, the names that have become the very fabric of Welsh history.

The video includes an incredible archive of Welsh success, including the epic 13-12 victory over the All Blacks in 1935, and Cardiff's even more remarkable victory against them in 1935 ending with captain Bleddyn Williams being carried off the pitch on the supporters' shoulders.

All the most important 5 Nations victories are covered, including Watkins' incredible try to defeat France 9-8 and clinch the 1966 championship, the amazing win in Paris in 1999 and, of course, Scott Gibbs' wonder try at Wembley in the same year to prevent an England grand slam.

This video is a superb collection of great tries, great moments, great teams and, primarily, great passion.
