Peter Edwards
RTS Wales is saddened at the death of drama producer and director, Peter Edwards.  He initially worked with Lluniau Lliw as an executive producer, and with ITV Wales as a drama commissioner, later forming his own company, Barefoot Rascals.  His credits include the TV drama series, The District Nurse and A Mind to Kill, along with the feature films, A Way of Life and Taliesin Jones.  His award-winning valleys based TV drama series Nuts and Bolts, (HTV Wales), laid the foundations for It's My Shout, the scheme for developing short-film talent for TV and cinema.  Peter was passionate about the industry, as an active Member of the IWA Media Policy Group, and he was very concerned about the media portrayal of Wales and its people.
