Gwaith/Cartref (English: Home/Work, literal translation Work/Home) is a Welsh language television series that premiered on S4C on 18 September 2011. It was the third new drama series to appear on S4C for 2011, next to Alys and Porthpenwaig. It follows the professional and personal lives of a group of teachers working at a Welsh language comprehensive school, dealing with a number of issues during and after the school day. The first half or each episode centres on the work-side, the second half on the home-side of the storyline.

The show is produced by Fiction Factory. The second series was screened in spring 2012; the third series was filmed in summer 2012[1] and broadcast in March 2013.

The fourth series aired in January–March 2014. Actress Rhian Blythe won a BAFTA Cymru Best Actress award for her role in the 2014 series of the show. Siw Hughes was nominated for the same award.[2] Series 5 of the show was broadcast during January–March 2015.

Series 6, featuring mostly new characters at a new school, started broadcast on 20 January 2016,[3] with Series 7, directly continuing the story, starting on 7 September 2016.[4] Series 8 was broadcast from 11 January 2017 to March 2017.[5] Series 9 will be broadcast from February 2018.
