C'mon Midffild a Rasbrijam
It’s the final whistle for one of Wales’ best loved football teams!
C’mon Midffild is one of the most successful comedy series ever broadcast on S4C. Created by Mei Jones and Alun Ffred Jones the show started life on BBC Radio Cymru before being adapted for the screen by Ffilmiau’r Nant in 1988 and quickly became the most popular comedy series on S4C and voted one of the most successful series ever shown in S4C’s history! The show won a BAFTA Cymru for Best Drama Series in 1992, and despite coming to an end in 1994 is still repeated regularly on S4C.
The show mainly revolves around the misadventures of Bryn Coch United, a fictional village football team. The running of the team is handled by the least capable committee imaginable: Arthur Picton (the team’s stubborn, arrogant manager), Wali Tomos (the slightly dim-witted linesman) and Tecwyn Parri (the team’s goalie, and arguably the most normal on the committee).
Following a trend set by the BBC when they resurrected Only Fools and Horses, C’mon Midffild returned to the screens after a 10 year absence on Christmas Day, 2004 with a feature length special – C’mon Midffild a Rasbrijam. The epic plot saw Sandra fall into a coma, prompting the rest of the original team (joined by George and Sandra’s children) to set off to Azerbaijan to fulfill her dream of helping an orphanage there.
The first DVD (in a series of 10) was released in 2002, and now with the release of C’Mon Midffild a Rasbrijam a new generation of viewers are able to enjoy the hilarious antics of Bryncoch United.
