S4C focuses locally for new flagship programme; TELEVISION: Series aims to compete with schedules and viewing patterns of other channels.

S4C launches its new flagship magazine programme Wedi 6 tonight.

The first episode of the programme, which replaces the longrunning Heno, will feature North Wales chief constable Richard Brunstrom in his first Welsh interview.

Mr Brunstrom only started studying Welsh just over a year ago.

The presenters were surprised at the chief constable's ability to grasp the language and respond to a range of topics, from policing to the difficulties of learning a new language.

Wedi 6 will focus on local community affairs and human interest stories throughout Wales.

The team of presenters is led by former Heno anchorwoman Angharad Mair.

S4C's editor for factual programmes Cenwyn Edwards said Wedi 6 would target a broad family audience to compete with the schedules and viewing pattern of the other channels.

The first episode of Wedi 6 will be screened on S4C tonight from 6.05pm.
