Banff 2005 Rockie Awards

BBC's Blackpool wins Global Television Grand Prize

(June 13, 2005) It was a record-shattering night for the British Broadcasting Corporation at the 26th Banff Rockie Awards: Its programs won the $50,000 Global Television Grand Prize and half-a-dozen category awards at the world's most inclusive and prestigious international program competition. The BBC's Blackpool was named best-of-festival by a blue-ribbon international jury led by Banff's founding chairman, Fil Fraser. "Blackpool stood out in an excellent competitive field by virtue of its highly creative and innovative synthesis of music and drama in the exploration of human relationships," said Fraser. "What emerges in this production is nothing less than a new genre of television programming, a major step forward in advancing the kind of quality television that this festival was born to celebrate." Blackpool also won the Banff Rockie for Best Mini-Series. Complete Story French Story
