Double success at Bulldogs
KEO films was one of the big winners at this year’s Televisual Bulldog Awards, winning two prizes.
The awards, now into their eight year, are voted for by industry professionals.
The company was named Best Indie beating The Garden, who produced the award-winning 24 Hours in A&E, and Blast Films, makers of the Grierson-nominated documentary series Coppers.
It caps an amazing 2011, in which we produced two of the most talked-about documentaries in Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die and Hugh’s Fish Fight.
Other productions included River Cottage Veg, Hugh’s Three Hungry Boys, Living With The Amish, Jerusalem on a Plate and the Big Bread Experiment.
Meanwhile Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die came out on top in the Documentary Single category, seeing off strong competition from BBC1’s Panorama: Undercover Care and Poor Kids to land another in a long line of awards.
In our frank and personal 60-minute documentary, the author looked at the procedures set out for assisted death broadcast on BBC2 last year.
It sparked plenty of reaction, including a Newsnight debate around assisted dying, chaired by Jeremy Paxman.
