CSV and BBC Radio Bristol wins local radio award

CSV and BBC Radio Bristol have won a Gold BBC Gillard Award for a series of programmes in which people in the community spoke openly about life in the area.

Huge congrats to CSV Producer Debra Hearne for her work on this and to the people of Paul’s Place for welcoming her so that their stories could be told.

What the judges said about our winning entry… (including Debra’s acceptance speech, introduced by BBC DG Mark Thompson).

The Frank Gillard Awards were presented to the winners by well–known alumni of BBC Local Radio including Kate Adie, Michael Buerk, Jane Garvey, Simon Mayo, Garry Richardson, Sophie Raworth, Sonia Deol and Mary Rhodes – at an awards ceremony hosted by the BBC Director-General Mark Thompson in Birmingham Town Hall on 24 November.
