| 09 October 2019

Welsh language public service broadcaster S4C has added to its native language original drama slate with leading European scripted content through a new partnership with Channel 4s Walter Presents.

Set to premiere on 22 October with Swedish drama thriller Offeren Stockholm (Stockholm Requiem) on S4C Clic, the Walter Presents ar gyfer S4C slot will feature original, award-winning dramas with Welsh language subtitles on S4C and S4C Clic free-of-charge, with no subscription fees. English subtitles will also be available on each series.

The premiere will mark the first time for Offeren Stockholm to be shown in the UK, with the entire series available to watch on-demand. Also on 22 October, the first episode of Afonydd Gwaedlyd (Crimson Rivers) will broadcast on S4C, with the entire series available to watch on S4C Clic at the same time.

Commenting on the new partnership, Walter Presents co-founder Walter Iuzzolino said: We know that Wales is a producer of world-class and award-winning drama, which makes me truly excited to be able to share my selection of dramas with a knowledgeable and progressive audience. The best shows take hold of the viewer and never let go, and that is precisely the aim of Walter Presents ar gyfer S4C.

S4C content director Amanda Rees added: Y Gwyll, Un Bore Mercher and Bang are excellent examples of Welsh original drama which have become international successes. Language is no barrier to quality drama and its really exciting that S4C viewers can enjoy more world class drama.
