BBC One Wales to broadcast S4C’s Bang

We’ve already had one very good Welsh-language crime drama this year – 35 Awr – and series two of Craith is on the way, but in the middle BBC One Wales has signed up another crime drama from Wales.

Set in the steel town of Port Talbot and already broadcast on S4C, Bang is a drama about blood, love and human relationships. It was written by BAFTA-wining scriptwriter Roger Williams, and produced by Joio and Artists Studio. Bang has won best drama in the BAFTA Cymru awards, and Celtic Media Festival.

The eight-part drama follows the story of an ambitious policewoman, Gina (Catrin Stewart), and her brother Sam (Jacob Ifan), whose life is transformed when he comes into possession of a gun.

Much of the dialogue is through the medium of Welsh, which will be subtitled in English.

Look out for it in early summer.

    I rather enjoyed this series. Thought the title was a bit ridiculous at first but once I’d seen it, it made more sense as the brother is rather naiv in many ways and getting in trouble because of it.
