BBC Cymru Wales celebrates award wins

TV and radio programmes from BBC Cymru Wales have scored five wins at this year’s Celtic Media Festival.

The awards, held in Londonderry in Northern Ireland, saw BBC Radio Wales take home best documentary title.

BBC Radio Wales’ documentary features Radio Wales presenter Louise Elliott who met Terry O’Neill, whose brother was killed by their foster parents. The subsequent trial made front page headlines and inspired Agatha Christie to pen her long-running play.

BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru are also both nominated in the Radio Station of the year category, which was won by RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta. Presenter Frances Nic Géidigh from Raidió na Gaeltachta also won Presenter of the Year.
