Newyddion (English: News) is a Welsh-language news programme consisting of Welsh, UK, and international news, produced daily by BBC Cymru Wales and broadcast on S4C.


The main evening programme is usually broadcast each weekday evening between 9 pm and 9:30 pm, with shorter 15-minute editions airing at varying times on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

In 2009, a new service of short weekday bulletins were introduced. Five-minute updates now air lunchtime (1:00 pm), mid-afternoon (2:55 pm), mid-evening (usually 8:55 pm) and late night (times vary) with a short headline summary at 6:58 pm.

Most Newyddion correspondents and district reporters also contribute to BBC Radio Cymru's news programmes.

Newyddion relaunched on 22 April 2013 with the main 30-minute evening edition (now branded as Newyddion 9) moved to a new regular 9 pm slot, having previously been broadcast in a regular 7:30 pm slot.

S4C weather forecasts are broadcast before or after each bulletin as well as before closedown and produced by Tinopolis in Llanelli.
