Not sure if anyone has done this yet but 'London' in Doctor Who and Sherlock is the best thing I've seen recently. The British Museum looks a lot like the Welsh Museum in Cardiff :P Oh and Clogau Gold!

Salt of the earth people and what about those beautiful mountains and the myths/legends? Fab stuff. The welsh versus English thing all seems a bit silly from a distance.
