The site of Cardiff bus station is set to undergo a major regeneration with the announcement that BBC Cymru Wales is to move its headquarters there.

The corporation's current HQ in Llandaff will shut and staff will relocate to a new building in Central Square in 2018.

BBC Cymru Wales director Rhodri Talfan Davies said the location was a chance to be closer to audiences.

The ageing infrastructure of the current HQ is the reason for the move.

Arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas reports for BBC Wales Today.
