Translation of opening paragraphs:
"Former S4C program director Euryn Ogwen Williams died at the age of 78.

"He was an experienced broadcaster and a pioneering figure in the media world in Wales.

"He started his broadcasting career straight from university as a director of TWW.

"When S4C was established in 1982, Euryn Ogwen was the channel's first director of programmes.

"One programme that was unforgettable was Superted, although only three programmes were pre-prepared.

"And the aim, as he explained on Radio Cymru, was to sell S4C to a young generation who would first see something in Welsh before learning English."
