Hedd's progress wins S4C award.

AN S4C documentary won a major prize at the One World Media Awards.

O'r Galon: Canfod Hedd (From the Heart: Finding Peace), which follows a family from Kenya as they make their new home in North Wales, won the Local Media Award.

The programme portrays sisters, Lydia, aged 18, and Rebecca, 16, their mother, Jane and father Hedd Vaughan Thomas as they move from Nairobi to settle in Pwllheli.

Caernarfon-based Cwmni Da followed the family for over a year, capturing how Hedd adapts to life in Wales after 26 years working for charities in the Third World.

The film also follows Lydia as she joins sixth form college, Coleg Meirion Dwyfor, Rebecca as she attends secondary school Ysgol Glan y Mr, and their mother, Jane, as she starts work as a carer for the elderly.
