Looking for S4C TV show participants

Like most channels there are quite a few programmes on S4C featuring members of the public… Am Dro springs to mind. I was curious about where the companies (most S4C content is produced by independent companies rather than being made in-house) advertise for participants. I’ve had a look at one or two of their sites and can’t see anything. There must be somewhere.

A fair bit of recruiting happens on social media these days and there are often posts on facebook from the companies producing - certainly we at Cwmni Da have used it for various series and I definitely recall seeing posts for Am Dro contributors too (that’s not one of Cwmni Da’s). I’m not on Twitter but I imagine they post there too.
Then there is still the old fashioned way used too - ads in local papers or papurau bro for instance. We also contact specific interest sites and forums depending on what’s required (I’ve posted occasionally on here in the past :wink: ).


Fancy going on the radio instead @stuart_robertson_758? :slight_smile:

I have a Welsh speaking friend who was living in Japan. She would get called upon for things like rugby, when it was happening in Japan, or if there was an earthquake. Our own @Novem is surely on a list for all things Welsh and Finnish.

This sounds like a lot of fun! I’ve changed the thread title to make it a little more generic, and I’ll mention it in the newsletter :camera_flash:
