Brighton indies Ricochet and Lambent Productions enjoyed a successful night at the Southern Regional Awards at the end of February.

At a ceremony hosted by TV presenters Sally Taylor and Fred Dinenage, Ricochet took home the Factual Entertainment award for ITV’s Britain’s Favourite Dogs and the Factual Series – Small Scale award for BBC Two’s The Repair Shop.

Neil Kent, who has worked on both Ricochet series, won the Camerawork award.

The Factual Series – Small Scale award went to Lambent Productions for BBC Two’s Addicted Parents: Last Chance to Keep my Children, which the judges said took a “heartfelt, considered and respectful approach to very challenging subject matter”.

ITV Channel Television was another company to taste multiple success at the Winchester Guildhall ceremony. Jessica Savage was named Regional TV Journalist for “getting to the heart of her stories and delving under the skin”, while Daniel Skipp scooped the Newcomers On Screen award, demonstrating “great on-screen persona”.

The Jersey-based ITV station also won the Feature for Strand within a News or Magazine Programme award for Falklands 35 and editor/cameraman Kenny Fillingham took home the Post-production award.

BBC South’s Matt Graveling picked up two prizes: Regional Special Feature Journalist and VJ (Broadcast). For the latter category, the judges said: “Matt demonstrated great storytelling and real visual flair.”

The BBC region also won the News Magazine Programme award for BBC South Today and its Digital Video Unit took home the Online Production prize.

Bournemouth University walked away with three of the student categories: Animation for Liv; Drama (with Wiltshire College) for The Manor; and Factual for Manambong Road.

The latter film, which examined the life of a family living in a deprived neighbourhood in the Philippines, had “great insight” and was “professionally filmed”, according to the judges.

University for the Creative Arts students won the Comedy and Entertainment award for Cold Feet and the Short Feature prize for Morris by Himself, a “very personal and raw look at the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder”, shot by Morris’s son.

"The awards are the highlight of our year and I have been so impressed by the quality of entries from across the region. I am proud to chair such a dedicated committee, which pulls together and makes the event so enjoyable and worthwhile," said RTS Southern Chair Stephanie Farmer.

She added: "Streaming live on Facebook was also something new for us and we were very pleased this was a great success, and allowed families and colleagues to see their loved one's receiving their well-deserved awards."
