Sky News wins Coverage Of The Year!

I’m very pleased to say that Sky News has won an RTS award for ‘Coverage Of The Year’, relating to the ‘UK Riots’.

And I’m incredibly proud to say I was one of the Directors covering that event as it unfolded. I sat down as Director at midnight on the first night, just a few hours after the iconic burning double-decker bus footage. All night we received emails in their thousands with photos, videos and text messages from all over the UK. A fantastic team of top-form Producers verified and checked each piece of footage and we took it straight to air.

A very well deserved award for incredible team work.
