BBC One Wales is the national variation for BBC Wales of the network BBC One service broadcast by the BBC. The service is broadcast in Wales from Broadcasting House in Cardiff. BBC One Wales broadcasts around three hours of non-news programmes for Wales each week alongside six hours a week of national news for Wales from Wales Today.

BBC One Wales branding is utilised between 6am and around 1am each day with live continuity handled by a team of regional announcers who double up as directors for playout and various Wales Today news bulletins. Continuity from the main BBC One network service is carried overnight until the handover to the BBC News Channel.
