Another international award for the BBC documentary co-presented by Norman Fenton

Earlier this month I reported that the BBC documentary "Climate Change by Numbers" (that I co-presented) won the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science Journalism Gold Award for "best in-depth TV reporting".

Now the programme has won another prestigious award: the European Science TV and New Media Award for the best Science programme on an environmental issue, 2015.

The new award (see photo below) was presented to BBC Executive Director Jonathan Renouf at a ceremony in Lisbon on 25 November 2015. Jonathan thanked the team involved in the programme, saying:

"I'm absolutely delighted to see the film gain such widespread international recognition. It really is a tribute to the way you managed to bring fresh television insight to a very well trodden subject, and to do it in a way that was genuinely entertaining as well as so innovative. Everyone I've spoken to out here is so impressed with the film. Thank you again for all your hard work, passion and commitment in making the show."

The programme has also recently been screened on TV in a number of other countries. Here is a comprehensive review that appeared in La Monde.
