Stuff you’d only get on Radio Four part 2364 – a drama about S4C! Of course it’s the thirtieth anniversary of both that and its English language brother this week but while the current Channel Four, never knowingly interesting, isn’t doing anything about it, it looks like S4C are churning out the clips most nights and showing programmes voted for by viewers – and brilliantly, the schedules all have “subsequent programmes are subject to change” disclaimers, so clearly they don’t know what they’re going to be showing and how long it’ll be. The only English celebrations of this penblwydd hapus are here, which tells the true story of how Gwynfor Evans went on a hunger strike until the Government promised there’d be a Welsh TV channel.

Creamguide's Pick of the Day
No Mastermind this week, and not much else very interesting to be honest, hence the umpteenth appearance in Creamguide this year for this as part of an evening of familiar repeats. As we know, ABBA at the BBC isn’t really anything of the sort, just a load of ABBA videos and more of less the entirety of Disco In The Snow. Still, the music’s nice.
