The Royal Television Society Scotland held their annual awards ceremony on the 6th of February (online, so no fancy tux required – it was comfies, slippers and a wee cheeky prosecco 😏) and I was utterly thrilled to win the Royal Television Society Scotland award with my film The Women Who Built Glasgow City. I am so absolutely delighted as it’s a story about women and unbelievable tenacity and determination.
Thank you so much to the judges, my amazing production team and to Laura Montgomery and Cas Stewart who are phenomenal. I was privileged to tell their story. What an inspirational pair they are. Proud as punch!
Ps, no-one likes a show-off but amazingly this is my FOURTH win
I’m a novelist and award-winning documentary filmmaker.
My debut novel, 'The Birds That Never Flew', was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize and longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. 'Almost Then', my second novel, was published by Linen Press in April 2021.
I write, produce and direct documentary films and won Royal Television Society Scotland awards in 2015 with 'Jock Stein' and for 'Jim Baxter' in 2016. 'Jimmy Johnstone' was nominated for a bronze Torc for Excellence in 2017. My feature length documentary film 'Tommy Burns won a Royal Television Society award in 2019 and 'The Women Who Built Glasgow City' won the same award in 2021.
I made two children who are now making children too. That's the biggest achievement of all. I live in Glasgow, Scotland and Rathlin Island, Ireland.
