Hundreds of people have helped launch BBC Wales' new community project in Denbigh, north Wales.
Derek Brockway taught visitors to read the weather forecast
The town is the first to be visited by the BBC in a bid to get to know its audiences across Wales.
The Community Strategy - branded Here For You, or Yma i Chi - will spend three months in Denbigh and also visit three other locations.
On Sunday, more than 500 people met BBC Wales presenters and also had a sneak preview of Doctor Who's Tardis.
The strategy will then move onto Butetown in Cardiff, Carmarthen and Aberdare over the next 12 months.
The new series of the cult sci-fi programme is being made by BBC Wales and has been written by Russell T Davies.
The Community Strategy initiative has taken months of planning to achieve, said Huw Llewelyn, community strategy co-ordinator for BBC Wales.
Visitors saw the new Doctor Who Tardis
"Our main aim is to get closer to our audiences, to get to know our audiences," he said.
"Denbigh happens to be the first location of four. We've been working with the people of Denbigh for nine months."
The town's Market Hall was transformed into a mini BBC village for the launch on Sunday.
Residents saw Doctor Who's Tardis for the first time, met Wales Today presenter Sara Edwards, Radio Wales' Roy Noble and they were able to read the weather with Derek Brockway.
In addition, a corner of Cwmderi was transported to Denbigh as the village shop from the BBC's longest-running soap Pobol y Cwm was on show. Huw Llewelyn said there was something for everyone.
"What you see today is a combination of all departments. Radio Wales have their presenters like Roy Noble and Chris Needs and similarly with Radio Cymru. You also have the Pobol y Cwm shop, the Doctor Who tardis is here, along with Derek Brockway the weatherman and Sara Edwards from Wales Today."
Outside the hall the Hysbys, a community bus created in partnership with the BBC, the Welsh Language Board and Bangor University's Department of Lifelong Learning housed online services.
Julia Hughes, head of Denbigh Community College said locals have responded well to the project.
"It's very exciting for the community, quite often you see the BBC as somebody who is doing something elsewhere," she said.
BBC Wales' sport department encouraged visitors to the road show to carry out live football and rugby commentary.
One of the first to pick up the gauntlet was Bob Card from Denbigh.
Pauline Thomas hopes Denbigh will be put on the map
"It was very nerve-racking especially with people talking into your ear telling you what you should say, I was enjoying the sport to much to commentate," he said.
"I was looking at two recent events when Wales played Italy in the football and Wales played England in the rugby and I'm happy to say Wales won both of them," he added.
Pauline Thomas, also from the town, said since Denbigh Hospital closed in 1995 the town has lost some of its character. She hopes Here For You will remind people about the town's existence.
"It'll put Denbigh on the map because Denbigh has died a death since the hospital closed so many years ago and a lot of shops have closed," she said.
"I just hope this will bring more shops and visitors to Denbigh."
Huw Llewelyn said there are more activities planned over the next two months.
"There are all sorts of workshops, there are drama workshops, scripting in Welsh and in English the Orchestra is involved, there are live programmes of Radio Cymru and Radio Wales. There are all sorts of activities," he added.
