It probably won’t get enough traction if we’re honest to have a dedicated thread, but there is no ‘English Language Only’ rule for this one so go ahead and discuss them here.
On that note I watched a show on the BBC iPlayer that was set and filmed in my home town of Port Talbot called Bang. It’s a police/detective style thing and is partially in Welsh and partially in English, going for the realistic angle as most residents aren’t fluent in Welsh (there are subtitles on the iPlayer).
It’s not ground breaking but I was happy to see it was actually pretty good and not just a novelty because they filmed scenes at my old primary school. I’ll be catching up with the rest.
Loner Sam (Jacob Ifan, Cuffs) has his life transformed when he comes into possession of a gun and starts to break the law. His ambitious policewoman sister Gina (Catrin Stewart, Doctor Who, Stella) is paid to uphold it and makes it her mission to find the owner of the weapon. The family saga plays out against an inquiry into the shooting of a local businessman that raises questions for Sam.
This series is firmly rooted in its location in Port Talbot and the Afan Valley, and Bang breaks new ground for S4C where the purposeful use of English dialogue is used to reflect aspects of this community.
