Carmarthenshire was the location for Keeping Faith, starring RWCMD grad Eve Myles, and Hinterland exposed the dark, moody landscapes of Ceredigion. It’s also the location for new Channel 4 and S4C drama, Y Golau/The Light In The Hall, continuing the trend of dramas being filmed simultaneously in the Welsh and English Language.
The Pembrokeshire Murders on ITV recently told the story of Welsh serial killer John Cooper, with detective Steve Wilkins played by RWCMD Fellow Luke Evans, alongside grad Alexandria Riley among others.
The list of major TV dramas filmed in Wales in recent years seems endless, and includes Casualty, Sherlock, Merlin, The Accident, Being Human, Britannia, Gangs of London, A Brave New World, A Very English Scandal, Requiem, Da Vinci’s Demons, Ordinary Lies, Traitors, Wolf Hall, Decline & Fall, The Widow, The Pack and more, many featuring RWCMD graduates as well. How many have you seen?
Finally, we can’t talk about TV shows in Wales without talking about the iconic Gavin & Stacey which has made Barry Island famous. Make sure you pay a visit and grab some chips from Marcos Café.
Many of our students and alumni have gone on to work on productions filmed right here in Wales, and with the industry growing here, this looks set to continue.
