iPlayer BBC-produced programmes on S4C will also be shown on the iPlayer

A new agreement between the BBC and S4C will see all BBC-produced S4C programmes made available immediately on the BBC iPlayer for the first time.

There will also be a move into high definition (HD) for flagship soap Pobol Y Cwm.

The BBC Trust and the S4C Authority have signed a renewed agreement until 2013.

From then the BBC will take over part-funding of the Welsh-language channel.

BBC Trust Chairman Sir Michael Lyons said the partnership underpins the BBC's commitment to Welsh-language broadcasting.

The announcement follows S4C's decision to abandon plans to apply for a judicial review of the UK government's decision to change the channel's funding arrangements.

The partnership agreement covers the BBC's statutory obligation to supply S4C with at least 10 hours of programming per week (520 hours over the year), funded out of the licence fee.

S4C viewers will continue to see the channel's news provided by the BBC, as well as the soap opera Pobol y Cwm.

The long running series' move into HD will happened once production switches to the BBC's new studios currently under construction in Cardiff Bay.
