Hinterland / Y Gwyll – Series 3

A television series created by Fiction Factory.

Hinterland / Y Gwyll is an award-winning detective drama created by Fiction Factory for BBC & S4C. Set in rural West Wales, the show follows DCI Tom Mathias & his partner DI Mared Rhys as they uncover a string of fatal incidents.

Quite uniquely, the show is completely bilingual, with different versions of each episode filmed side-by-side in Welsh & English. Each episode is a feature-length film, and with each new episode there was an opportunity to reframe the world of the show, to introduce new elements and develop a connection between the music & picture.

Hinterland / Y Gwyll Series 3 was first broadcast on S4C (Welsh) during autumn 2016, followed by broadcasts on BBC One Wales & BBC4 in 2017.

I joined John Hardy Music in creating the music for the third series, with composers John Hardy, Tic Ashfield & Benjamin Talbott.

The soundtrack album has now been released on Ffin Records and is available here.
