The main evening programme is broadcast each weekday evening between 9 pm and 9:30 pm, with shorter editions airing at varying times on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

In 2009, a new service of short weekday bulletins were introduced. Five-minute updates air at lunchtime (1:00 pm), mid-afternoon (2:55 pm) and early-evening (6:30 pm).

Dewi Llwyd, who presented the programme for almost 30 years, was dropped from the presentation team in 2013.[1] Having previously been broadcast at 7:30pm, the programme relaunched in its new 9pm slot on 22 April 2013 with Bethan Rhys Roberts and Rhun ap Iorwerth[2] presenting on alternate nights. Mr ap Iorwerth later left the BBC to successfully stand for Plaid Cymru in the Welsh assembly by-election for the seat of Ynys Môn.[3]

S4C weather forecasts are broadcast before or after each bulletin as well as before closedown and produced by Tinopolis in Llanelli.


Newyddion won the 2012 BAFTA Cymru Award for News Coverage for a special programme broadcast from New York to mark the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks.[4]

At the 2013 BAFTA Cymru Awards ceremony Newyddion was mistakenly awarded the News Coverage award. The award was later correctly presented to ITV Cymru Wales.[5]
