Y Byd Ar Bedwar is a Welsh language current affairs programme. The team picked up the award in the News and Current Affairs category for their programme on calls for a public inquiry into historical child abuse on Caldey Island after another victim came forward.

Kevin O’Connell from Ceredigion contacted the team and invited them to follow his emotional journey back to where he was abused 47 years ago.
