What TV’s on at BAFTA in October? Including Cymru Awards: The Sessions and The Sister

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

It’s been a while since BAFTA organised any TV events – August, in fact – but with the Cymru awards just round the corner, we’ve got a big splurge of Welsh Q&As coming our way. Naturally, that includes a chat with one Mr Russell T Davies for the writers session, but Jonathan Pryce is lined up for the actors session. Ooh!

On top of that, we’ve also got a Q&A with the cast of ITV’s The Sister coming up, too, featuring the likes of Russell Tovey.

Full details after the jump.

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.
