The Honourable Woman wins Peabody Award and receives South Bank Sky Arts nomination

 

The Honourable Woman has been honoured in the 74th Annual Peabody Awards. The prestigious Awards, originally founded to offer the equivalent of a Pulitzer Prize in radio, today recognise excellence across radio, television and other media. The single criteria for receiving an award is excellence, and a programme must receive the unanimous approval of all Peabody judges in order to win.

Hugo Blick’s thriller was recognised for its visual richness and dense plotting – ‘it suggests complexities and age-old vendettas that often escape even the best documentaries, to say nothing of the evening news.’

In addition, The Honourable Woman has received a nomination for best TV Drama in the South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2015. The Awards are unique in representing the entire spectrum of the British Arts, aiming to celebrate the best of British culture and achievement. An awards ceremony will be hosted by Melvyn Bragg at The Savoy Hotel on Sunday 7th June.  A full list of nominations can be found HERE.

The Honourable Woman has recently picked up awards from the Royal Television Society and the British Press Guild, as well as receiving five BAFTA nominations.
