I’m really thrilled that Tannadice 87, the purpleTV film I wrote, produced and directed for broadcast on BBC ALBA, has been nominated for a Royal Television Society Scotland award in the Best Sport Programme category.
I’ve won this award twice before, and had several nominations so it’s always great to know that the hard work is being recognised.
Thank you to the brilliant team at purple, the contributors, my amazing family who are the best drama actors in the world (!) and all the other agencies who helped to make this the film that it is.
The award ceremony is on the 9th of May. Here is the full list of nominations. Good luck everyone!
