Filming Begins On New S4C And BBC Wales Crime Series

News Image
Filming has started on a new eight-part crime series, 'Hidden/Craith', in Snowdonia, North Wales.

The show will premiere in the Welsh language on S4C in early 2018 as Craith. A bilingual version, Hidden, will follow on BBC One Wales.

Backed by two Welsh broadcasters and all3media international, the series tells the story of detective DI Cadi John 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, Cadi's world - and the world around her - is changed forever.

The Severn Screen production brings together series creators Mark Andrew and Ed Talfan and director, Gareth Bryn, all of whom worked on the award-winning drama series Y Gwyll/Hinterland. The producer on the series is Hannah Thomas.

Writers on the series include co-creator Mark Andrew, award-winning Welsh novelist Caryl Lewis and BAFTA Cymru-winning writer Jeff Murphy.

Cast members on the series include Sian Reese-William (35 Diwrnod, Y Gwyll/Hinterland, Requiem), Rhodri Meilir (Byw Celwydd, Pride), Gwyneth Keyworth (Wasted) and Sion Alun Davies (Endeavour, Y Gwyll/Hinterland).
Severn Screen Creative Director Ed Talfan said the company is "thrilled" to be filming in North Wales.

"I know from the experience of shooting Y Gwyll/Hinterland in mid-Wales how important the landscape can be in helping to define a series," he said.

"I fully expect the breath-taking landscape in and around Snowdonia to stamp itself on this series in the same way."

Nick Andrews, Head of Commissioning at BBC Wales said: "This is an award-winning team who I know will deliver another slice of extraordinary drama. Hand in hand with Requiem and Keeping Faith, there's a remarkable slate of Welsh drama coming to BBC Wales next year."
