Green Bay wins awards for TWO productions at the Celtic Media Festival

23rd April 2012


Green Bay was the ONLY production house to win awards for TWO different productions at this year's Celtic Media Festival.

The feature length drama Burton: Y Gyfrinach?, was given The Jury Award, one of the Festival's two main prizes in a ceremony on Friday night, 20 April.

The jury were impressed by how well the production, the design, the direction and the narrative gelled to create a compelling work of art.

Ian Jones, S4C Chief Executive said, "Congratulations to everyone involved with this production. Burton: Y Gyfrinach? was one of the highlights of S4C's Christmas and New Year schedule and it fully deserves the accolade for its excellent production."

Produced by Judith Roberts and Dylan Richards and directed by Dylan, the film raised new questions about Richard Burton's relationship with his older brother Ifor Jenkins. Richard Harrington took on the role of the world famous actor and Dafydd Hywel portrayed his brother Ifor.  Green Bay Creative Director, John Geraint was the Executive Producer.

Green Bay's documentary film ‘ The Lions 71' also won a coveted Torc for best Sport programme. The film for BBC Cymru Wales was presented by Eddie Butler and revisited the scenes of the British Lions' victorious tour of New Zealand in 1971. It featured memories from Lions and All Blacks, as well as stunningly-shot scenery. Dylan Richards produced and directed this programme too, and once again the Executive Producer was John Geraint
