St George’s TV documentaries nominated for awards
Two documentaries filmed at St George’s have made it to the final nomination list for the prestigious Grierson Awards.
The Grierson Awards, also known as the British Documentary Awards, is one of the biggest events in the UK documentary calendar.
Baby Surgeons: Delivering Miracles and Sudden Death: My Sister’s Silent Killer have both now made the final stage before the ceremony on 10 November.
Baby Surgeons: Delivering Miracles
Baby Surgeons: Delivering Miracles, produced by Wonderhood Studios, is a three-part documentary series which aired on Channel 4 in April and May this year. Filmed inside our fetal medicine, neonatal and maternity units at St George’s, the series follows the extraordinary work of our staff as they treat women experiencing rare and complex pregnancies.
The series is nominated in the Best Documentary Series category, up against Sky Documentaries’ Allen v. Farrow, Netflix’s Immigration Nation and BBC’s Once Upon a Time in Iraq.
Sudden Death: My Sister’s Silent Killer
Sudden Death: My Sister’s Silent Killer, which features the work of our inherited cardiac conditions team, aired on BBC One in April. The one-part documentary, produced by Storyvault Films, follows the story of a family whose daughter sadly died from sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) in 2019.
This documentary is nominated in the Best Science Documentary, up against PBS International’s The Last Artifact, BBC Four’s Locked In: Breaking the Silence and Netflix’s The Surgeon’s Cut – made at King’s College Hospital.
Both documentaries required a huge amount of work by so many of our teams – thank you and congratulations to all out staff involved in these projects.
The awards ceremony takes place on Wednesday 10 November 2021.
