Abadas Series Released on First Ever Bilingual Gaelic/Welsh DVD

This article is taken from the Stornoway Gazette website.

A DVD of the popular children's series Abadas has been released for young viewers to enjoy in Scotland, Wales and further afield.

Not only is this the first Abadas DVD, but also the first DVD to offer viewers the option of watching a programme with a Gaelic or Welsh audio track.

Margaret Cameron BBC ALBA said: "We're delighted to be involved in the Abadas DVD.

"The series and DVD have been great models of collaboration for us delivering a creative outcome for both S4C and BBC ALBA with fantastic support from RTE, CBeebies, Dinamo, Obh Obh Productions and Sain."

"I'm sure the DVD will go on to entertain Gaelic and Welsh-speaking children for years to come".

The DVD is produced by Sain and commissioned by Dinamo Productions, in association with S4C, BBC ALBA, CBeebies and RTE.

The series was launched on all four channels in October 2011 and has quickly become a firm favourite with the young viewers.

The DVD was launched at the National Eisteddfod in the Vale of Glamorgan last week, and is available to buy from the Sain website www.sainwales.com.
