Craft and Innovation Award 2017: Planet Earth II

Production Company: BBC Studios, The Natural History Unit
Broadcaster: BBC One
Nominees:

“The award this year goes to a documentary series that was simply gorgeous to look at – watching it was to marvel at how those images could even exist. It brought us a world of wildlife drama bigger and better than ever before, clearer, brighter and more comprehensive. From their home in Bristol, the brilliant programme makers behind this show have, for over half a century, pioneered the use of ground-breaking technical and creative innovation to open our eyes to the wonders of the natural world. But technology can only take us so far. Like all great programmes, it needs dedicated, talented professionals across the whole production. One reviewer summed it up perfectly when they said… “It has become predictable to heap superlatives upon the BBC Natural History Unit and wax lyrical about Attenborough’s status. But both institutions should be treasured while we’re lucky enough to still have them.””

Judges Award 2017: World War One Remembered: Passchendaele

Production Company: BBC Studios
Broadcaster: BBC One and BBC Two
Nominees:

“The Judges’ Award goes to a live event that whilst being incredibly complex and ambitious was nevertheless delivered with a flawless brilliance. It was a true collaboration of content and technology working seamlessly as one to enable the history of the First World War to be brought to a LIVE television audience in an innovative and original way. From the incredible projection mapping to the detailed and emotive storytelling, together with orchestras, military bands, choral music, never seen before archive, global stars, and not least a team of hugely talented people. These elements all came together to tell the tragic story of one of the most horrific battles of the First World War in the place where it happened, a century on… A truly memorable and engaging piece of television.”

Lifetime Achievement Award 2017: Tony Revell

Nominees:

This year’s Lifetime Achievement Award deservedly goes to a sound supervisor who for more than 30 years has been at the very top of his game. From Top of the Pops to Only Fools and Horses, from The Eurovision Song Contest to Strictly Come Dancing, on every type of programme imaginable, his contribution to television has been, and continues to be immense.
It’s in LIVE situations where he raises the bar, sets the standard for others to follow, whether its BBC’s Millennium Night Celebrations, over 48 hours of live global television, or Children in Need, Comic Relief, The Voice, Eurovision, and of course Strictly… in fact the list of his achievements is so long we’d be here until tomorrow… In short then, he is a hugely talented, and yet incredibly modest man, whose impressive career is one to be proud of. He is quite simply one of the good guys, and if the rumours are true that he is retiring at the end of the year, then it’ll be a great loss to the industry.”

Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 RTS Craft & Design Awards
