S4C boss suggests English language soundtrack

S4C's Chief Executive Ian Jones has suggested the broadcaster may add an English language voiceover for some of its programmes that will be available via 'the red button.'

Ian Jones, who took over at the channel in April 2012, says it could help to broaden the reach of S4C.

Our strapline at the moment is something for everybody and as a unique as the only Welsh language channel in the world.

We have to appeal to those who are fluent in the Welsh language, less fluent, learners, those that are inspired to learn. If the content is out there and we can afford to do so, why not put an English language soundtrack on the red button and make the content available to everybody.

– Ian Jones, S4C's Chief Executive
