Since we launched in 2020, we’ve supported a number of creative projects. From big-budget feature films to homegrown TV dramas, and grassroots music venues to new games technology – we’ve invested millions to help our creative sectors grow.

We want to give you a flavour of some of the projects we’ve supported, from helping to scout out the best locations to pulling together the right crew. On this page, we invite you to go behind the scenes and discover how we’ve worked with the likes of Lucasfilm to bring investment to Wales. 

We'll keep updating this page as new projects go live, so come back soon to see what else we've been working on.

Lost Boys & Fairies

BBC drama Lost Boys and Fairies hit our screens in June 2024.  

The series tells the tender, glittering story of singer and artiste-extraordinaire Gabriel, his partner Andy and their journey to adoption. Cardiff-born actor Sion Daniel Young (Witness Number 3, Deceit) and star of stage and screen Fra Fee (Cabaret, Les Misérables) appear in lead roles as Gabriel and Andy.

Lost Boys and Fairies is created and written by Welsh writer Daf James, directed by James Kent (The Capture, Testament of Youth), and produced by Duck Soup Films for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
