Documentary triumphs at Broadcast Awards 2011
8 February 2011
Katie: My Beautiful Face won the Best Documentary Programme award at Wednesday night's Broadcast Awards. We were proud to sponsor the category and offer our congratulations to all the winners on the evening.
The judges were almost unanimous in voting for the documentary, saying "it stirred emotions and shone a light on a young woman struggling to deal with a life-changing event, over which she had no control."
The documentary has been made available for global sale by Mentorn International and has been picked up for broadcast in a number of territories. The programme became Channel 4's highest-rated documentary when it aired in the Cutting Edge strand in late 2009.
"The Broadcast awards were a ray of sunshine, and a powerful reminder of the sheer creativity and energy of the sector, despite the well nigh unprecedented difficulties our economy is facing." - Lord Puttnam
