In Cold Blood Wins International Emmy for Current Affairs
From the ITV press website:
Produced by DSP for ITV Network, this feature-length documentary examined the biggest treatment disaster in NHS history. Directed by Grierson Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated documentary maker Marcus Plowright, this film told the story of how thousands of British haemophiliacs were infected and died from HIV and Hepatitis C after being prescribed infected blood products by the NHS. This landmark film offered viewers a vivid insight into the scale and impact of the tragedy.
Controller of Current Affairs, Tom Giles said:
“This is fantastic recognition for a beautifully-made film and for an important record of an underreported national scandal. It’s also a real testament to the strength of filmmaking that ITV Exposure now attracts that it’s the strand’s fifth International Emmy – four of those won in the last five years.”
