What (more) TV’s on at BAFTA in February? Including Matthew Hall on Writing

Un Bore Merched (Keeping Faith)

Every week or so, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

Following on from last week’s February listing, there’s been a quiet announcement this week of an additional February BAFTA event – ie. I had to look on their web site just now to find it. It should be an interesting, too, given it’s a masterclass in TV writing by Matthew Hall – the bloke who wrote the books CBC (Canada)’s Coroner is based on, as well as S4C/BBC1’s Un Bore Mercher (Keeping Faith) and ITV’s Kavanagh QC.

Award Winners Masterclass: Matthew Hall on Writing

Wednesday, 6 February 2019 – 4:00pm
The Atrium, University of South Wales

A chance to hear from the BAFTA Cymru winning writer of Keeping Faith.

Matthew began life as a trial lawyer before landing his first TV writing commission aged 27 on ITV’s Kavanagh QC starring John Thaw. He has written over 50 hours of prime-time TV drama and five novels. He divides his time between his family home in Wales and London.

A TV series of Matthew’s novels called Coroner has just been made for CBC in Canada and is airing in the UK on Universal TV from January 2019 onward. The books are set partially in Wales, and have been adapted by Welsh-born writer, Morwyn Brebner.

The event is part of the University of South Wales’ TV Futures Day.
