Christmas is well and truly over and I’ve been spending quite a lot of time watching things in order to vote for awards.
There is so much to watch that at several points over the past couple of months I panic and wonder if anyone is able to watch about 100 plus hours of television. I then stop and think of how fantastic it is to have this choice! It simply shows that although offerings on terrestrial channels can sometimes feel a bit average, many shows abound with incredible storytelling techniques or with characters that you want to grab and have a deep conversation with.
Personally I have been overwhelmed by the documentaries entered. I don’t envy those who have the final say. There have been so many excellent ones this year – Being Blacker, A Northern Star, the numerous films on Grenfell, Stephen: The Murder that Changed a Nation, Gun No.6 are literally just a handful. I wish all of those who’ve entered the best of luck!
