RTS Scotland Awards 2024



Scotland’s television industry was celebrated at an award ceremony in Glasgow last night (Thursday 13 June), as the Royal Television Society (RTS) Scotland announced the winners of the 2024 Programme Awards.

Presenters Shereen Cutkelvin and Sanjeev Kohli handed out 25 awards to winners at Glasgow’s Fruitmarket; and Amy Irons carried out interviews with jubilant winners behind-the-scenes.

Among those receiving awards were Phyllis Logan for her performance in Shetland, whilst Conor McCarron won best Actor for his performance in Dog Days, which also won the Drama Award. BBC’s Two Doors Down picked up the Comedy Award; Designing the Hebrides was victorious in Entertainment and Features; and Hamza Yassin won the On-Screen Personality Award. 

Neil Forsyth won best Writer for Guilt series 3; whilst Vigil Series 2 won in the Sound category. STV News at Six (North) won the News Award, whilst Disclosure picked up the Current Affairs prize. 

The Special Contribution Award was presented to talented Editor, Chris Buckland, who has credits on multiple high profile scripted and unscripted TV shows including Guilt, Shetland, Taggart, Cutting Edge and Take The High Road. Testimonials from across the industry describe Chris as instrumental in the development of many careers, being generous with his time and expertise, providing opportunities for development and acting as a mentor – always with patience, a critical eye and a brilliant sense of humour.


Stephen O’Donnell, Chair of RTS Scotland, said:

“TV is an exciting industry to work in which brings joy, information, drama and insight to viewers across the world, and the talent and hard work that goes into creating the brilliant content that we’re celebrating is nothing short of exceptional. We at RTS Scotland are incredibly proud to celebrate and support Scotland’s TV talent.”
