Peter Edwards, a former Head of Drama at HTV Wales, has died.
He was executive producer of gritty Valleys drama Nuts and Bolts, the twice-weekly serial that ran on HTV Wales between between 1999 and 2002.
He was also director of A Mind to Kill, the 1990s detective drama starring Philip Madoc that was sold to over 90 countries.
Peter Edwards was most recently the co-founder and managing director of Welsh independent production company Barefoot Rascals which produced a number of factual entertainment series for ITV Wales.
During his career, he worked on both Welsh and English language productions.
He was also a launch director on the BBC's EastEnders.
A native of north-east Wales, Peter Edwards was the son of the late actor and writer Meredith Edwards.
Nuts and Bolts became renowned for its accurate portrayal of Valleys life and became a proving ground for Welsh drama talent - Eve Myles, currently in ITV's Victoria, was among the cast members.
The series was awarded The Royal Television Society Award for Best Regional Drama in 1999.
