Hinterland leads the way at 2014 Bafta Cymru film and TV awards


The Aberystwyth based crime series, Hinterland, has been nominated for nine Bafta Cymru awards. The highly praised Welsh language series will be going up against the internationally successful Sherlock and fellow Welsh series 35 Diwrnod who both have 5 nominations each.

Hinterland, or Y Gwyll as it is better known in its native tongue, has picked up nominations in the Best actor, actress, director, television drama, editing, writer, sound, costume design and photography and lighting categories.

The series, which follows a troubled detective investigating the crimes that surround the small town in Western Wales was broadcast on BBC Four earlier this year. Earning comparisons to The Bridge and The Killing, the international rights were soon snapped up by Danish TV network DR and will be broadcast in Denmark in the near future.
