The series, which has been a huge success on More4, was voted Best Factual Programme by the judges who said: ‘The winning programme dug deep into the communities it portrayed, telling interesting stories that combined to paint a big and satisfying picture — a worthy winner for its story-telling, visual style and sheer enjoyment’.
It originally aired on More4 last summer, attracting an audience of 626K, the channel’s highest launch for a series in three years. A new run of 10 episodes is currently in production and will be shown later this year.
True North Creative Director, Andrew Sheldon, said: ‘It’s a challenging series to make, especially across winter, but the team never shy away from getting stuck in, whatever the weather. The result is a joy to watch and it’s a series we’re very proud of’.
True North’s partnership with Tyneside Cinema on Channel 4’s Random Acts scheme for young film makers was also celebrated, with the RTS making a special Centre Award to the cinema for its work.
A year in the making and it’s finally happening. We’re so proud to be part of this. Breaking the Silence: LIVE. https://t.co/oRrUQixlrh
