Interview With A Murderer Wins RTS Award

Interview With A Murderer has won its second award at the 2017 Royal Television Society Television Journalism Awards. The documentary lead by Professor David Wilson also won 'Best Documentary' at the Broadcast Awards earlier this year.

The awards, for both news and current affairs, seek to recognise creative and excellent journalism by organisations whose broadcasts are transmitted on a UK-based platform or who create online video content from a UK production base.

Stewart Purvis, CBE and Chair of the Awards said: “After the exceptional news events so far in 2016 and the high quality coverage by broadcasters in the UK it is clear that the competition for the RTS Television Journalism Awards is going to be tougher than ever at the end of the year. The Awards celebrate the hard work, dedication and extraordinary breadth of talent in news and current affairs reporting.” 

The judges marked Wilson's documentary as: 
"... a brilliant and gripping film, which was also beautifully made. It was a compelling watch, right from the first frame and the final interview was a genuine scoop!”
