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.
