nuts and bolts

Nuts and Bolts (TV series)

Nuts and Bolts was a weekly television drama series, set in the fictional South Wales town of Ystrad.

Filmed entirely on location in Merthyr Tydfil, the series made large use of exterior locations, with many interiors being recorded in a former Welsh Water depot; which became a hastily improvised television studio.

Enjoying moderate success, the series became renowned for its accurate portrayal of valleys life (much like the BBC Wales series Belonging) and became a proving-ground for new Welsh drama talent, such as Eve Myles, Jason May, Lawrence Llewellyn, Nathan Jones, Dean Keohane and Alexandra Dunn.

However, erratic scheduling and a lack of commitment to show the drama nationally, (except irregular, late-night showings on ITV2), led to the series being cancelled in November 2002; just one month after Nuts and Bolts finished its fourth-series run on HTV.

The series was written by David Harris.
