'Take a Hike' optioned to further territories
Welsh BBC hiking format Take a Hike has been optioned in France, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and Israel. The popular factual show from Cardiff Productions sees four keen walkers compete against each other in every episode to have their favourite Welsh walking trail crowned the winner.
The series was hosted by comedian Rhod Gilbert in the UK, where it originated on Welsh channel S4C before being reversioned for BBC Two. Sales were struck by distributor Hat Trick International.
“Take A Hike follows a brilliant model: it was developed for a Welsh broadcaster, turned into an English-speaking format, and then sold internationally,” said Cardiff Productions Managing Director Narinder Minhas.
