Freelance executive producer and RTS Wales Chair, Judith Winnan, discusses the drama series Un Bore Mercher/Keeping Faith. This eight-part series is the second in a season of bilingual dramas premiered back to back on S4C and BBC Cymru Wales. It proved very popular on S4C, standing out as one of the channel’s most-watched dramas on-line and garnering a unique following across the UK. We discuss the success of what has become the most popular show on BBC Wales in 20 years, and the most downloaded programme on iPlayer. What goes into creating a bilingual drama series, and does the story transcend language?
