BBC Radio Cymru began broadcasting in 1977 as the only station transmitting wholly in the Welsh language and now has two channels. The main one broadcasts on FM and through various television providers, offering 18.5 hours of Welsh language programming daily and filling in with BBC Radio 5 Live output for the rest of the time (midnight until 05:30).
A second channel broadcasts on digital and online channels. It outputs the same programmes apart from two hours of separate breakfast programming every morning.
