We have recently been working with our long time partners Avanti on a brand new political programme for BBC Wales called The Hour.
At a time of momentous change for Wales, The Hour will focus on some of the major issues shaping the Welsh and UK political agenda. The debates will involve members of the public, politicians and experts sitting side by side as they explore each subject.
The programme is set to be aired monthly, and will travel to locations across Wales, and has already taken place in Ebbw Vale and Newport.
The debates will be hosted by Catrin Nye, who many viewers might recognise as a regular reporter on the BBC’s daily current affairs show Victoria Derbyshire, and Radio 1 Newsbeat Reporter Steffan Powell, who will provide additional analysis and bring social media into the studio discussion.
The last episode (November 2017), which took place in the Newport YMCA building, is now available to watch on the BBC iPlayer and features an accidental cameo by our very own Rhian Jones!
For that show we provided 40 of our new DPA 4098 ‘gooseneck’ microphones and 16 DPA lapel microphones, 4 engineers, 3 Allen & Heath mixing desks, 4 Coda Speakers and 4 Bosch 100v line Horns.
