Hinterland Experience

The Welsh cop drama Y Gwyll/Hinterland will return to Ceredigion this September where production will begin on a new five-part series.

Aberystwyth University was a key partner during the first production of Y Gwyll/Hinterland and will continue to be again for the next series.

The University’s Plas Gogerddan will once again be transformed into the police station where DCI Mathias and his crime solving team are based.

Students from the University also benefited from placements and gained invaluable industry insight, as well as networking opportunities to prepare them for their future careers.
