KEO films nominated three more times
KEO films has added three more nominations to its growing collection, this time at the Royal Television Society awards.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony later this month.
Hugh’s Fish Fight, KEO films’ anti-discard campaign, has been shortlisted in the Popular Factual And Features category.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, who fronted the series, has been nominated alongside Gareth Malone (for The Choir: Military Wives) and Karl Pilkington (An Idiot Abroad II) in the Presenter category.
Meanwhile Terry Pratchett: Choosing To Die, also created by KEO films, has been named in the Single Documentary category.
“It’s very exciting for Fish Fight to be nominated in two categories for the Royal Television Awards,” said Hugh.
“But to be honest, welcome as they are, I wouldn’t want these plaudits to distract too much from the fact that, as Fish Fighters, we still have a fight on our hands!” he added.
“The elimination of the madness of discards still hangs in the balance as the EU continues to debate the future of the CFP.
“And the UK’s own target for Marine Protected Areas is also under threat.
“You’ll hear more from me soon on both these issues, so please stay in touch with us on Twitter, Facebook and the Fish Fight website.
“Thanks, and keep fish fighting!”
