We won Best Factual Series and Indie Spirit Award.
Daisybeck Studios Managing Director, Paul Stead, said “We are thrilled and moved by the kind support of the RTS in Yorkshire and the judges for recognising all the hard work of the brilliant, talented and gifted people who work on our productions. We are fortunate to have some of the best Producers, Directors, Production Management, AP’s, Researchers and Editors in the north working for us at any one time.
These Awards are for them as well as for the the people about whom we make our programmes. It’s been an incredible 12 months since the last RTS Awards and I would like to thank all those – in front of and behind the camera – who have contributed to this great honour that winning these two Awards represent.
In particular I would like to thank Peter Wright, Julian Norton and the team at Skeldale Veterinary Centre for allowing us into their world to make what has turned into a highly successful series “The Yorkshire Vet”. Thanks also to the utterly brilliant Patricia Routledge who shared her passion for Beatrix Potter with us, in a remarkable film written and directed by the equally brilliant Ian Denyer.
I would like to dedicate both Awards to the 700 plus people per year who make the selfless act of donating their bodies to science and those institutions, staff, students and medical professionals who make use of that gift to advance learning, treatments and procedures for the good of mankind; and especially the team at the University of Liverpool and Newcastle Surgical Training Centre; and the families of Mike Bowyer and Diana King, for whom these Awards stand in their honour.”
