As this is the "Wales" thread, I'm going off on a different tangent - S4C...
be ma pawb yma'n ei feddwl o 'lineup' newydd S4C?? h.y. ers i Pobol y Cwm (cringe!!) gael ei symud i slot hwyrach ac ati? Dwi'n meddwl ei fod o o leia' yn rhoi cyfle i raglenni eraill ddatblygu... ond dwi'n sylwi fod S4C yn dal i ddefnyddio'r clipiau o'r speaker fel ident - pan mae gennon nhw rai gymaint yn well!!
Unrhyw raglenni werth eu gweld ar S4C yn ddiweddar?
The new line-up on S4C~ doesn't really appeal to me, although I have, on occasion, caught myself watching Rownd a Rownd [don't shoot me!], or the repeat of Jara -- which is typical S4C~ weirdness. Wedi 6 was perhaps a decent progression from Heno [I liked the titles! They sounded a lot like Heno anyway], which had been around for over 20 years, but this Wedi 7 business looks awful. Ugh. Pobol Y Cwm, the flagship programme on S4C~ shouldn't be moved around so much, it looks unprofessional, and it's clearly dodging the other soaps on BBC ONE and HTV -- it needs to promote itself more confidently, and less of this "Wela i chi'n hwyrach" business.
There are no other new evening programmes around, that they're developing though -- the same old nonsense there has been for years, Ffermio, Cefn Gwlad.. Although Slaymaker's now repeated at 6.30, which it never used to be. That's not bad. They had Planed Plant-turned-boyband-member-turned-mini-celebrity Rhydian Bowen Phillips last time I watched.
Indeed, none of us like Speaker, or the Egg-Cup one while we're on it. They're pathetic, computer generated efforts, nothing like the excellent ones S4C~ had to offer in the past, but have for some reason dropped. All they use is Mouse, Stapler, Magic Hat, Garlic Crusher, the 2 new ones, Pencil one for summat serious, and the Sport one [Screen]. No more Scissors, Kite, Sousaphone, Water Hydrant, Pedal Bin, Tuba, Tongs, Dragonman, Light on a Pole, Spray can, Shower Head, Lawnmower -- stupid waste really. At least S4C~ use menus now though.. Trail end boards are boring now.
Apart from those mentioned I never really watch any Welsh programmes. Fondue Rhyw a Deinosors was very weird in a good kinda way, and yes I'll admit to watching Pam Fi Duw, but erm, that's never coming back is it. Whatever happened to Uned 5? Is that still going?
