BBC Three comedy Man Like Mobeen scored a hat trick of wins at the RTS Midlands Awards in late November.
The writers of the Tiger Aspect production, Guz Khan and Andy Milligan, were named Best Writers for the third year running.
Dúaa Karim, who stars as Khan’s little sister in Man Like Mobeen, won the Acting (Female) award, while the series also took the Craft – Production prize.
Hereford-based production company and charity Rural Media matched Man Like Mobeen, nabbing three awards for: Flesh (Animation); film-maker Luke Collins (Breakthrough Off-screen); and BBC New Creatives (Short-form).
BBC Studios’ Doctors, which is celebrating its 20th year on air, was rewarded with awards for Best Drama and Acting (Male) for Adrian Lewis Morgan, the daytime series’ longest-serving cast member.
Sex and relationship guru Oloni from BBC Three show My Mate’s a Bad Date bagged two prizes: On-screen Personality and Breakthrough On-screen.
Walsall-born Sue Nicholls, who has played Audrey Roberts in Coronation Street for more than four decades, received the Baird Medal in recognition of her outstanding contribution to television. Previous recipients of the medal include Sir David Attenborough, Jed Mercurio and Frank Skinner.
“Our region has again produced some of the best TV and talent in the last 12 months, and we received more award entries than in 2019 – given the circumstances that’s incredible,” said RTS Midlands Chair Caren Davies.
The ceremony was broadcast live from BBC Birmingham on the RTS website and hosted by TV presenter Tim Warwood. He was assisted by Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and stars that included Guz Khan, Jill Halfpenny and Craig Charles. Strictly Come Dancing announcer Alan Dedicoat provided the voiceover for the ceremony.
