Uned 5 ("Unit 5") was a BAFTA award-winning teenage magazine show, broadcast live every week on Welsh channel S4C. The programme was the channel's flagship youth magazine for over sixteen years.

The show was broadcast from a purpose built 'house' at a studio in Caernarfon, and featured celebrity guests, news items, lively chat, bands, sketches and filmed interviews. Despite the obvious ties to The Big Breakfast, the show originally had more in common with the BBC's Blue Peter, until later relaunches saw Uned 5 target an older, teenage audience.

On 24 November 2009, S4C announced that the programme would be axed as part of a major revamp of the station's youth programming.[1] The very last edition of Uned 5 was broadcast on Sunday 30 May 2010.


During its time on air, Uned 5 was fronted by 21 presenters - many of whom gone on to present further shows on S4C and other channels, notably Rhodri Owen who became a reporter for the BBC travel show Holiday and Gethin Jones who went on to present Blue Peter.

The presenters are mostly remembered in the following line-ups:

  • Gaynor Davies, Garmon Emyr & Nia Dafydd
  • Heledd Cynwal, Rhodri Owen & Nia Elin
  • Catrin Mai, Lowri Morgan & Bedwyr Rees (with Carwyn Llyr)
  • Lisa Gwilym, Gareth Owen & Gethin Jones
  • Llinos Lee, Mari Lovgreen & Rhydian Bowen Phillips
  • Tudur Evans, Gwawr Loader & Leni Hatcher (with Elliw Baines & Gwenno Haf)
