S4C's online service Hansh has commissioned new content to "further develop the platform".


Hansh was launched in June 2017 to offer exclusive content for young people aged 16 - 34.


Since then the service has evolved from operating solely on Facebook and YouTube to creating content on Instagram and TikTok as well as creating podcasts.


The new slate is part of S4C's strategy to commission longer content for Hansh over the next few years.


The new commissions will begin on November 25 with a new series of Pa fath o Bobl (What kind of people?).


The three-part documentary series with Garmon ab Ion will challenge the stereotypes, beliefs and traditions of Cymru.


From the luxury resorts of Pen Llŷn to the octagon of an MMA fighter, from glam models to the theatre; Garmon will ask 'What Kind of People' are concerned about the hot topics of Cymru.


What exactly is happening to the housing market on Pen Llŷn? Is there a future for Cymru in the UK? And are a million Welsh speakers by 2050 realistic?


Hansh's "favourite anthropologist" will try to make head and tail of what's going on in Cymru.


Another new commission will be the GRID current affairs series looking at timely topics.

The first few episodes will ask whether the beauty industry is racist - as a young fashion student considers how inclusive the beauty industry is and how under-representation and racism has affected black women in the industry in Cymru.


Another episode will discuss lack of trust in the health service as a trans woman considers why her community has lost faith in the health service after deciding to raise £30,000 for private sex confirmation surgery.
