Welsh language TV channel S4C has made broadcasting history by winning the first Royal Television Society Sports Award for a production in the Welsh language.
Y Clwb Rygbi, the channel's flagship sports programme, beat off strong competition to scoop the UK's Regional Sports Programme of the Year award in the Actuality category.
The programme's live rugby coverage, produced for S4C by BBC Cymru Wales, was praised for "its passion, urgency and precision" by the team of Royal Television Society adjudicators.
Y Clwb Rygbi has been one of S4C's most successful and highest-rating Welsh-language series over the last five years in its now familiar live Saturday evening 5.10pm time slot.
It has a strong presentation team of experienced commentators and former rugby internationals - including commentators Huw Llywelyn Davies and Gwyn Jones, studio presenters Rhodri Williams and Brynmor Williams and touchline reporter Ray Gravell - and a high-quality presentation and filming style.
S4C's Commissioner of Sport and Events, Gareth Davies, who was at the RTS Television Sports Awards in London, received the award on the channel's behalf.
Gareth Davies says, "I'm delighted that S4C has made broadcasting history by winning this prestigious award.
"From its commentary and live action, to the match analysis and graphics package, Y Clwb Rygbi is a quality S4C brand that can easily compete with other UK sports programmes. I must pay tribute to all those involved in the production on S4C's behalf at BBC Cymru Wales."
Y Clwb Rygbi beat off Three Cups For The Kop (Granada Televison), and Northern Ford Premiership Grand Final: Widnes v Oldham (Yorkshire Television) for the top award. Y Clwb Rygbi has previously been nominated for an RTS Sports award, but this is the first time for the series to win.
