Following S4C's technical co location to BBC Central Square Cardiff and the digitisation of the programme archive, S4C is now looking to dispose of the physical tape assets held at its former headquarters in Parc Ty Glas Llanishen. The timetable for disposal means that S4C requires the contents to be removed by the end of June 2023
We have closed the "expression of interest" process however if there are any question please contact business affairs - firstname.lastname@example.org
As you are aware we are fast approaching our financial year end.
In order for us to ensure that the sum outstanding below is paid before the 31st of March, can you please send the paperwork and corresponding invoice to email@example.com by 23/03/2023.
Clearing these historic balances will assist us in our year end audit as we must supply extensive evidence to the National Audit Office for accruals made.
Your assistance in this matter will be greatly appreciated.

S4C has joined other broadcasters and organisations in the TV industry to support the Coalition for Change and the Freelance Charter, which commits to improving working conditions for freelancers. TAC has already signed up to the Charter and we look forward to working with TAC and our producers to deliver these commitments.
The full statement and the Freelance Charter can be read here.
We have recently been reviewing the S4C Casting Guidelines in discussion with Equity. The guidelines were introduced in order to avoid having actors appearing in prominent roles in more than one drama series being broadcast at the same time. We have come to the conclusion that we no longer need these guidelines, in view of audience habits, our multi-platform strategy (including box sets), the on-demand window of 150 days and the changes in filming patterns for our soaps. We will remove the Casting Guidelines from the S4C Production site, but producers will still need to discuss and agree the main cast members for any drama with the S4C Commissioner.
S4C, TAC, Equity and a number of other broadcasters and industry bodies have supported a Statement of Commitment against bullying, harassment and inappropriate behaviour in TV.

As part of the S4C's ongoing commitment to deliver a diverse and vibrant slate of content, which reflects a modern Wales and its relationship with the rest of the world, S4C is delighted to confirm today that applications are open for production companies to tender for the Welsh language version of Channel 4 and Studio Lambert's award-winning Gogglebox format (under license to S4C by Studio Lambert), to be transmitted late Autumn 2022 in a non-competitive TX slot trailing the upcoming Channel 4 series.
S4C is issuing an Invitation to Tender for a Series of Gogglebocs Cymru - closing date 19 August, midday.
As it's not possible to offer airtime for each production to attract contributors, the Take Part page (s4c.cymru/takepart) exists on our website to showcase opportunities for people to star on the service.
The page can be pointed at via email, press and social media.
Production companies are welcome to fill out a promotion application for the page.
