Hinterland (BBC-4 2014, Richard Harrington, Mali Harries)



Detective drama series set in Aberystwyth against the backdrop of mountainous terrain, isolated farms and close-knit villages.

Hinterland marks the first time both English and Welsh languages have played a prominent role in a drama series broadcast by the BBC. The Welsh language elements have on-screen subtitles. The Welsh language version of the series, Y Gwyll, was broadcast in October and November on S4C and the series got a national screening on BBC-4 later in the year. It’s more than likely that the UK love for all things Nordic Noir (and from that a willingness to watch shows that are subtitles) that paved the way for the show.
