March 2015

The atmosphere at the RTS Television Journalism Awards
is always highly charged. This year’s ceremony was positively electric. I’d like to personally congratulate all the winners and to give a special mention to the winners of the Judges’ Award, the three imprisoned Al Jazeera journalists: Peter Greste, Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed. It was a real thrill that Peter could be there at the Hilton to receive his award. Unfortunately, his two colleagues remain on bail in Cairo. Peter’s speech – relayed live to Cairo so that Mohamed and Baher could hear it – was both touching and inspirational. It was a very memorable evening. Thanks to Peter for attending and to those who organised this unique tribute to the Al Jazeera journalists. Another of the night’s winners was Sky News. Don’t miss Andrew Billen’s interview this month with the channel’s editor, John Ryley. On 25 February, the Society held  its first nominations breakfast for the RTS Programme Awards. At Covent Garden’s Hospital Club, we heard who the nominees are on what is set to be a glamorous night out on 17 March.
I look forward to seeing you there. Finally, I’d like to thank Rona Fairhead, Chair of the BBC Trust, for providing such an insight into how she sees the Trust’s role. It was a great event and very well attended.
