Winners of the RTS Devon and Cornwall Student Television Awards 2020 announced

The winners were announced in mid-May during a live stream – hosted by the Plymouth-based brothers and stars of E4’s Tattoo Fixers, Pash and Uzzi Canby – on the RTS YouTube channel.

Originally, the awards were due to be held at a ceremony at the University of Plymouth in March, but this was cancelled because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The two showrunners talked about their work, from writing episodes of UK soap staples EastEnders and Casualty to the development of hit dramas This Life and Life on Mars, to their contribution to established shows Doctor Who and Shameless.

They described television as being a writer’s medium and how their writing credits for US multinationals opened the door to their current roles as producers.
