Huw Edwards

Huw Edwards is familiar to us all as the main presenter of the flagship news broadcast, the Ten O'Clock News on BBC One. Although predominantly a news journalist, during his career Huw has presented a wide range of programmes on television and radio. To mention only a few broadcasts involving Huw: he led the BBC commentary team at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics,the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the inauguration of Barack Obama. He presented the BBC's coverage of the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, for which he and the team won a BAFTA Award for Best Coverage of a Live Event. Huw has a particular interest in history and has presented documentaries on many historical subjects, including Owain Glyndŵr, Gladstone and Disraeli. The fascinating historical documentary series entitled The Story of Wales can also be attributed to Huw. On a lighter note, he appeared as himself in 2012, in a cameo role in the 23rd James Bond film Skyfall! Huw is married to Vicky Flind, a BBC producer, and they live in Dulwich with their five children.

We will be honoured and delighted to welcome Huw Edwards as the guest speaker at Cinio Haf 2022.
