BBC Wales, S4C shoot Hinterland follow-up

Production on Hidden/Craith is underway

The Welsh arm of the BBC has once again partnered with Welsh-language pubcaster S4C and All3Media International on a dual-language drama series.

Filming has begun in Snowdonia on Hidden/Craith, the latest Wales-based crime series from the two broadcasters and distributor All3Media, which previously worked together on Y Gwyll/Hinterland.

The eight-part series will premiere in Welsh on S4C in early 2018 as Craith. Bilingual version Hidden will follow on BBC1 in Wales.

Filmed back-to-back in Welsh and English by Severn Screen, the series tells the story of a detective who returns to north Wales to care for her ailing father. However, when the body of a young woman is found in a local river, her world, and the world around her, is changed forever.

The project brings together series creators Mark Andrew and Ed Talfan and director, Gareth Bryn, all of whom worked on Y Gwyll/Hinterland. The producer is Hannah Thomas, while include Andrew, Welsh novelist Caryl Lewis and Jeff Murphy.

It will join fellow Welsh dramas Requiem and Keeping Faith on BBC Wales next year.

Maartje Horchner, executive VP of content at All3Media International, said: “We are confident the success of Hinterland has paved the way for high-quality Welsh crime drama to travel well beyond its national borders.”

Netflix acquired Hinterland for the US and the rest of the world, while other acquisitions came from ARD (Germany), KRO (Netherlands), NRK (Norway), YLE (Finland), VRT (Belgium), RTV (Slovenia), Dizale (France) and DR (Denmark).
