The singer Elin Fflur is looking forward to reporting about events across Wales for the magazine programme Heno.
“I enjoy talking and meeting new and interesting people, and I hope Heno will be a chance for me to attend all types of events, not just music,” says the singer, who is used to travelling to all parts of Wales to perform.
“What’s nice about the series is that it features up-to-date events, and so I won’t know from one week to the next where I’ll be going. It depends entirely on what’s happening in Walesthat week, and that is what makes this job exciting.”
Elin joins the Heno team which also includes presenters Angharad Mair, Emma Walford and Rhodri Owen and reporters Aneirin Karadog and Rhodri Davies among others.
One familiar face who will present on the Heno sofa two evenings a week as well as reporting from events all over the north is Gerallt Pennant. The popular broadcaster from Porthmadog is enjoying the new challenge.
“I love travelling across north Wales on the trail of fascinating stories in our communities, but it’s nice to have the chance to present on the Heno set too,” says Gerallt, 52, who grew up in Eifionydd.
“I enjoy being at the heart of the excitement on the Heno set and to be able to interview interesting guests and get to the heart of stories which interest people in Wales.”
There’s also an extra programme of Heno now on Friday night.
Eleri Siôn presents the magazine show on Friday. There will be a different feel to this programme as the enthusiastic presenter prepares us for the weekend.
The programme is a perfect taster for the entertainment series Pen8nos which has also had some changes to its content.
Pen8nos will still contain competitive elements like the quiz Jacpot and Sam ar y Sgrin, Aled Samuel’s series that looks at the week’s programmes on S4C, moves from Sunday night to be part of Pen8nos.
Dafydd Du has joined the team on the afternoon magazine show Prynhawn Da to present from the studio on the series which is broadcast every Monday to Friday at 2.00pm. Mari Grug, Siân Thomas and Rhodri Owen are also part of the presenting team.
Heno will be repeated at lunchtime on the day following the original broadcast and highlights of Prynhawn Da are shown every Sunday afternoon.
Angharad Mair, producer of Heno and Prynhawn Da, says, “I’ve been looking forward to presenting the new-look Heno, a magazine programme where S4C puts viewers, communities and events on the TV screen. This is the viewers’ programme which covers the interesting and fun events happening acrossWales every day.”
