TV doc takes Amnesty award

A TELEVISION documentary about a refugee family from Africa, who had settled in a housing estate in Lanarkshire, is the latest winner of media awards hosted by the Scottish division of human rights organisation, Amnesty International.

‘Congo to Motherwell’ – by Fiona Walker and broadcast on BBC Scotland in August – was described by Amnesty as “carefully [balancing] the local and the global, to highlight the links between human rights abuses and asylum”.

The runner-up was the winner from three years ago, Billy Briggs, with an article in Scotland on Sunday’s Spectrum magazine, titled ‘In the Line of Fire’.
