Local, National, Transnational: Y Gwyll/Hinterland as Crime of/for all Places

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The term ‘transnational’ has remained under-defined in globalisation and media studies. However, its openness allows us to investigate the multiple allegiances of television content to the local, the national and the transnational. Drawing on archival material as well as textual analysis, the chapter examines Y Gwyll/ Hinterland (S4C, BBC, since 2013) which was produced both for the specific local audience of the Welsh-speaking minority in Wales, as well as British and European audiences. The chapter argues that its specific locality is an attraction that translates into the different reception contexts, despite significant disparities in how this locale is imagined.
