Sianel Pedwar Cymru - Channel 4 Wales. S4C was established by the 1980/1981 Broadcasting Acts. The channel was launched at 6pm on Monday November 01 1982. S4C was the new home for all Welsh language television programmes in Wales; prior to this, such programmes were to be found within the BBC and HTV schedules.
We don't have much footage of S4C continuity from this period in our archive. If you have any recordings of the channel, we'd be delighted to hear from you. Please refer to our Contact page for details of how to get in touch with us.
