Gaelic drama Bannan has been re-commissioned for a further 10 episodes.

The BBC Alba series, filmed on Skye, is the first Gaelic drama to be made since Machair in the 1990s.

The first episodes were aired last autumn and five new episodes are in post production. The 10 others are in development.

Bannan has been shortlisted alongside Sherlock and Shetland in the drama series award at next month's Celtic Media Festival in Inverness.
