FORCES RADIO BFBS PROGRAMMES SHORTLISTED FOR INTERNATIONAL RADIO AWARDS





Four documentaries made by presenters and producers from BFBS have been named as finalists for the 2017 New York Festivals World’s Best Radio Programs Awards.

The content explores a range of subjects, all with a military theme, and are recognised for both content and production values.

Nicky Ness, Director of Forces Broadcasting and Entertainment, said: “I’m delighted for the team at BFBS to be recognised once again by the New York Radio Festival juries. We pride ourselves in our creativity and in being able to spend care and time crafting programmes that tell the extraordinary stories of our unique audiences, whether serious or comedic. 

We had a particularly strong slate of entries for 2017 and I am so proud that our nominations will also champion the UK Armed Forces on a world stage as a result.”

The uplifting and candid story of Afghanistan veteran Cassidy Little – Coming Home, produced by Will Warren, has been nominated in both the Best Interview and Heroes categories in New York.

The Vulcan Documentary, produced by Richard Hatch and Hal Stewart, which tells the story of The Avro Vulcan Bombers in an engaging and entertaining way, is nominated in the History category.

The Sitrep Iraq Enquiry, which was presented by Kate Gerbeau and Christopher Lee, edited by Josella Waldron and produced by Mary Wilton, investigates why Tony Blair’s government decided to go to war in Iraq. This hard-hitting 30-minute analysis programme is a finalist for the Best Talk/Interview Special category.
                                    
Damn the Torpedoes is an audience-inspired, military-themed comedy sketch show that began crawling out of the water onto land early in 2014. Who Dares Grins – The Best of ‘Damn The Torpedoes’ is a compilation from the past five episodes of the hit comedy, produced by Alison Pritchard and Richard Hatch and is nominated in the Best Comedy Special category.

Listen to all of the shortlisted programmes in full via the ‘On Demand’ Radio section at www.forces.net/radio.

The winners of the 2017 New York Festivals World’s Best Radio Awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony in Manhattan, New York on Monday 19th June.


               



USING SOCIAL MEDIA - A GUIDE FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL


The use of social media is accepted by Defence and, when 

used appropriately, should be encouraged.

The issue we face is not why or how we use social media, but how 
well we use it. 
The government has produced a useful guide that tells you what is 
and isn’t acceptable social media behavior for military personnel.
