Newyddion (English: News) is a Welsh-language news programme consisting of Welsh, UK, and international news, produced daily by BBC Cymru Wales and broadcast on S4C.

Overview[edit]

The main evening programme is usually broadcast each weekday evening between 9pm and 9:30pm, with shorter 15 minute editions airing at varying times on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

In 2009, a new service of short weekday bulletins were introduced. Five minute updates now air lunchtime (1:00pm), mid-afternoon (2:55pm), mid-evening (usually 8:55pm) and late night (times vary) with a short headline summary at 6:58pm.

Most Newyddion correspondents and district reporters also contribute to BBC Radio Cymru's news programmes.

Newyddion relaunched on 22 April 2013 with the main 30-minute evening edition (now branded as Newyddion 9) moved to a new regular 9pm slot, having previously been broadcast in a regular 7:30pm slot.

S4C weather forecasts are broadcast before or after each bulletin as well as before closedown and produced by Tinopolis in Llanelli.
