The department’s commercial arm, Heslington Studios, was proud to sponsor the “Most Promising Newcomer” award at the Yorkshire Royal Television Society ceremony on Monday June 11th. The well-attended event at the Queens Hotel in Leeds celebrated the best television productions and people in the region, including 40 years of ITVs Emmerdale and 30 years of Channel 4’s Countdown. The photo shows our commercial manager Carole Dove presenting the award to Dan Johnson from the BBC's regional news programme Look North. Watching is the event host, actor Steve Huison who plays Eddie Windass in the popular TV soap Coronation Street (not made in Yorkshire!).
