Last October, when we took our Battlefield Tour to France and Belgium, we were very lucky to be accompanied by Victoria Cook, a BBC Reporter who subsequently edited and broadcast four three minute features about Thame Remembers on BBC South News.
We are thrilled to learn that Victoria has now been nominated for a Royal Television Society award in the category “ Best Feature or Strand within a News or Magazine Programme” for this coverage. It is great news to learn that her excellent work has also been recognised by her peers and we are proud to be associated with her nomination. We wish her all the best both in this and in her future career.
In sharing the news of her nomination Victoria wrote;
“Everyone here in the newsroom is really pleased that your project captured the judges’ attention. It is truly deserving of a nomination. It has also prompted many of us to watch back the series, nearly four months on (where did that time go?!). It really is great to hear all the stories again and to see the scale of the project you have taken on. I really hope I can win it for all of you. If I don’t, it certainly won’t be a reflection of the project. We had such a lot of lovely feedback about the BBC coverage. The views of the films online were well into the tens of thousands.”
To coincide with this wonderful news our website developers, Pentangle, have today added a link on the home page of our web site to enable direct access to Victoria’s features in the BBC archives.
