BBC Wales TV, BBC Radio Cymru and
BBC Radio Wales,
BBC Cymru Wales offers a national public service to the people of Wales, in Welsh and English, across TV, radio and online.
This includes two national radio services: BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru. We also provide a wide range of programming and online content for the BBC’s UK TV and radio networks.
BBC Cymru Wales supports Wales’ only professional symphony orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, which is based at BBC Hoddinott Hall at the Wales Millennium Centre.
In everything we do, BBC Cymru Wales looks to reflect modern Wales, exploring, investigating and celebrating the rich diversity of contemporary Welsh culture and society.
In 2009/10, BBC Cymru Wales broadcast more than 700 hours of local ‘opt-out’ programming on BBC One Wales and BBC Two Wales, including the daily news programme BBC 'Wales Today', live rugby and a wide range of political, factual and cultural output. On average, a million viewers tuned into this programming each week.
We provided more than 600 hours of Welsh-language television programming to S4C, funded by the licence fee - including the BBC’s longest running TV soap, 'Pobol y Cwm', and a range of sports, factual, news and current affairs programming.
In addition, 139 hours of BBC Network television were produced in Wales in 2009/10. BBC Cymru Wales is now regarded as the BBC’s leading production centre for network drama.
There has been enormous growth and success over recent years, with a series of major global successes including 'Torchwood' and 'Doctor Who'. Other network productions filmed in Wales include 'Sherlock', 'Upstairs Downstairs', 'The Indian Doctor' and 'Being Human'.
We are currently developing a new drama production centre at Cardiff Bay to bring these and other new productions under one roof for the first time - including the BBC1 weekly drama series 'Casualty'.
BBC Radio Wales is the only English-language speech-based station for Wales, broadcasting for 19 hours each day. Almost half a million listeners tune in each week.
The station aims to deliver a compelling service to Welsh audiences by focusing on programming that brings the nation together, celebrates Welsh talent and reflects life in contemporary Wales. Output covers news and current affairs with programmes such 'Good Morning Wales' and sports coverage and analysis.
BBC Radio Cymru is the nation’s only Welsh-language station, broadcasting for almost 20 hours each day. With a commitment to new radio drama as well as sports programmes such as 'Yn y Ryc' and the music series 'Sesiwn Unnos', BBC Radio Cymru reaches more than 150,000 listeners each week.
In addition to output on bbc.co.uk/wales and bbc.co.uk/cymru, BBC Cymru Wales delivers a range of UK websites and interactive services - from learning sites such as Bitesize and interactive drama productions like 'Doctor Who' and 'Sherlock', through to factual productions such as 'Crimewatch' and 'Human Planet'.
The BBC National Orchestra of Wales occupies a special role as both a national and broadcasting orchestra. The orchestra’s commitment to touring sees concerts throughout Wales, the UK and internationally, with additional concerts by the BBC National Chorus of Wales.
Many concerts are broadcast live on BBC radio and television and we have close working relationships with programme-makers, recording numerous soundtracks including 'Doctor Who'.
Our extensive Education and Community Outreach programme continues to work with children with disabilities across Wales, while our professional mentoring of Welsh composers has now extended beyond students to embrace the work of older composers living and working in Wales.
