Repeat win for BBC Scotland documentary

THE winner of a media award hosted by the Scottish division of Amnesty International has again triumphed – at its UK equivalent.

TV documentary, Congo to Motherwell, tells the story of a refugee family from Africa, who have settled in Lanarkshire.

After its victory in Scotland, the BBC Scotland programme has gone on to take the ‘Nations and regions’ prize at Amnesty’s UK awards.

The awards seek to recognise the reporting of human rights issues.

The documentary was produced and directed by Fiona Walker, from BBC Scotland’s news and current affairs department, and edited by Hilary McCusker.
