Hinterland


This is my saturday post
The world is so bloody small nowadays
This is a brief video of the Welsh police tv  series " Hinterland " ( y Gwyll)
The production values equal anything I have seen in the UK and its strange that the actors have to produce two versions ...one entirely spoken in Welsh and another shot in English!
This obviously is the welsh version.....one sold to many countries in Scandinavia
How versatile are the actors eh?

  11. We first watched this show when it began and I think some nordic types must have watched it too...we were soon swamped with lots of very similar stuff from scandinavia..really good stuff and reminded me how beautiful the countryside is.x

  12. I love Hinterland - the stories are excellent and the scenery is just stunning. Personally, I'd be quite happy for the BBC to show the all Welsh language version (with subtitles) instead of the part English / part Welsh they have shown in the past. It is lovely to listen to the lilting Welsh language. Can you speak Welsh, John?

  13. Well John, you know how I feel about this.

    Diolch

  14. Hinterland is one of my favourite words. It speaks of deep and hidden secrets and core realities.

  15. I love Hinterland and watch the mixed language version. It no longer seems strange when the characters switch from Welsh to English. I watch all the Scandinavian serials and they switch between Swedish, Danish, English, and French so often that I don't always notice. Great stories though!

  16. I have been watching it streaming on Netflix and wondered how authentic it is. I did see that all the credits are in both English and Welsh. I agree the scenery is beautiful and a really good series.

  17. On a totally different note, Zayn was asking me what was my favorite show on Netflix? Without a doubt; it's Doc Martin. I throughly enjoy international films. It's always interesting to look through a different lense.

  18. Is there a relationship between the Welsh language and Scandinavian languages?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have seen every show of Doc Martin thanks to a couple of Free TV websites online as well as on television. I was so sad to see it end.

  20. This looks like something I would enjoy watching.

  21. The only link I can see is that I don't understand any of them. Mind you, I'm building up an impressive vocabulary of swear words in all of them, which is an interesting psychological phenomenon. I can curse in so many languages now that I should be a shoo-in for the next MEP elections.
