Heno (Welsh for Tonight) is S4C's evening magazine television programme, broadcast at 7pm each weekday. Its afternoon sister programme is called Prynhawn da (Welsh for Good Afternoon).

Background[edit]

Heno was first broadcast on S4C on Monday 17 September 1990,[1] made by production company Agenda (which became Tinopolis) in Swansea.[2] It was replaced by a similar programme, Wedi 7 (Welsh for After 7), in 2003.[3]

Heno returned on 1 March 2012[4] after Tinopolis won a £5.1 million contract.[5] The show is broadcast from Tinopolis's Llanelli studio. In May 2012 they re-opened their studio in Caernarfon (which they had recently closed) following complaints that the programme was too Llanelli-based. The Caernarfon studio created content about North and Mid-Wales.[5][6]

Format[edit]

In its original run, Heno was broadcast at 6pm each weekday[1] but since its return it is now shown between 7pm and 8pm on Mondays to Fridays. Broadcasts are live, with a variety of guests chatting with the presenters in the Llanelli studio. Several reporters provide short items of interest from around Wales.[1]

Presenters[edit]

It was originally presented by Angharad Mair, Sian Thomas, Iestyn Garlick and Glynog Davies (now a producer of the programme).[1] Mair and Thomas are still (2015) regular presenters.
