The creator of the hit BBC period drama received the Outstanding Contribution award. Wainwright, who also wrote Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax, said: “It’s very nice that the award has come on the back of Gentleman Jack, which I’ve been working on for over 20 years. It’s the project that’s always been most close to my heart.”

Candour Productions creative director Anna Hall was talking about making Channel 4 film A Day in the Life of Coronavirus Britain at an RTS Yorkshire webinar in early June.
The Leeds-based indie planned the doc in two and a half weeks – and shot and edited it in just three days.
It was a ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants’ experience,” recalled Hall. “We had nine people shooting across the country and the biggest team ever of people sitting in their pyjamas at their kitchen tables producing.”
