What TV’s on at BAFTA in June? Including In My Skin

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

Following on from its March preview of the show, BAFTA has a new In My Skin event, this time an online Zoom webinar:

Masterclass: In My Skin

Wednesday, 3 June 2020 – 8:00pm

Odeon, Cardiff

A masterclass with writer Kayleigh Llewellyn (Stella), director Lucy Forbes (End of the F***ing World), executive producer Nerys Evans (Catastrophe) and actors Jo Hartley (After Life) and Gabrielle Creevy (Gwaith/Cartref).

Shot in Cardiff, the series follows the double life led by 16-year-old Bethan Gwyndaf (Creevy) as she navigates school and a troubled home life that sees her bipolar mother Katrina (Hartley) sectioned by the crisis team at a psychiatric hospital. Her alcoholic father displays a lack of compassion to the situation, and Bethan fights hard to hide the truth of the life she really leads from her best friends, Travis and Lydia, and her teachers.

The session will focus on the making of the darkly comic BBC hit, and give a detailed look at the development process from the initial script to filming the pilot, and then on to first full series.

Hosted by BBC presenter Alexandra Humphreys.

What TV’s on at BAFTA in November and December? Including The Crown, DIY SOS and Ruth Jones and Rob Brydon

Every Tuesday, TMINE flags up what new TV events BAFTA is holding around the UK

We’re not quite into December proper for BAFTA events, so there may be more Christmas delights to come. But we are nearly at the end of November. Is BAFTA slowing down? Not a bit of it – at least in the West of England and in Wales.

TV Preview: The Crown (Episode 6) + Q&A

Monday, 25 November 2019 – 6:30pm
Galeri, Caernarfon

Join us for a special screening of The Crown (Episode 6) followed by a Q&A with Mark Lewis Jones, Nia Roberts and others.

Wilson and Elizabeth send Charles to learn Welsh at Aberystwyth University for a term in order to mollify mounting Welsh nationalism. Whilst there, Charles struggles to grasp the true meaning of his title under the tutelage of Edward Millward, a prominent Welsh nationalist who hopes to instil the importance of the Welsh language and identity in his royal pupil. After a fractious start, Charles embraces Millward’s instruction and learns that he has more in common with the Welsh than he had imagined.

Without the knowledge of his parents, he alters part of his speech to reflect his own feelings and asks Milward to translate it. Charles’ speech is a great success, but Elizabeth is angry that he broke protocol and embarrassed the family with his pointed words. They part on unfriendly terms and Charles returns to Cambridge, knowing that his family have no interest in him expressing who he truly is.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with actor Mark Lewis Jones (Chernobyl, Keeping Faith, The Accident), actress Nia Roberts and others.
