With plans to broadcast over 100 hours of the Royal Welsh Agricultural
Show this year, S4C will extend its coverage with live, uninterrupted
broadcasts from the Show’s second ring, featuring the cattle

The main ring will also have continuous coverage which will
run in parallel with packed all-day programming from the Show,
Monday to Thursday on S4C digidol from 10.00am. On satellite

to switch freely between these services.
S4C’s live digital coverage can be accessed world-wide
on the S4C website and highlights can be viewed via broadband
for up to a month after the Show in the UK . The website will
also provide access to S4C’s broadcast schedule, full results
service and greetings from the Show.
S4C’s Y Sioe/07 highlights programmes
will air at 8.25pm every night and in the week following
the Show, there will two hour-long programmes looking back at
the event. The comprehensive daily farming bulletin, Bwletin
Ffermio will again air on S4C digidol at 12.20pm
each day of the Show.
Nia Roberts will be the main anchor for S4C’s daytime

the Channel’s commitment to rural programming and to the
