The Welsh Soap
2 May 2001 | by garethwyn2See all my reviews

Pobol Y Cwm has been running for nearly, 30 years. It was and is the first and only Welsh Soap, and has been the cornerstone of s4c since it's formation in 1982. It is set in Ceredigion, West Wales, which has a high Welsh Speaking Population, as the soap is in Welsh. Some of the most popular characters over the years have been Dic Deryn, Meic Pierce, Denzil, Reg Harris, Kath Jones, and Mrs McGurk (Mrs Mac). It is a highly enjoyable daily soap, although it's appeal seems to mostly be older people rather than the youngsters who still tend to watch English soaps such as Eastenders, which is a shame really.
