ITN Productions wins Broadcast Award

ITN Productions has won Broadcast magazine’s Best Daytime Programme Award for Climbing Great Buildings – a 15-part architectural series commissioned by BBC2.

For ITN Productions, the multimedia content creation arm of ITN, the award is a significant boost to the division which launched in 2010.

Climbing Great Buildings, which beat off competition from established shows that included Come Dine With Me, Deal Or No Deal, Doctors and Loose Women, was praised by an industry judging panel for its combination of ‘primetime production values on a daytime budget’.

Of the award, Mark Browning, Managing Director of ITN Productions said: ‘It’s a great achievement for the whole team. As well as being a pat on the back from our industry peers, it’s also confirmation of the high level of creative programming being generated from within the division.’

Climbing Great Buildings, which was executive produced by Emma Read and fronted by architectural historian Dr Jonathan Foyle, celebrates the history of architecture and engineering in Britain. The 15 x 30′ series was ITN Productions’ first daytime commission for the BBC and transmitted in September 2010.

Channel 4 News, produced by ITN, also picked up Best News Programme award for Our War Their War: Afghanistan, which was commissioned and produced by Channel 4 News’ Foreign Editor, Ben de Pear.
