MACE & ATVLAND.productions’ FOCAL Award
Media Archive for Central England
ATVLAND.productions’ affectionate look back at the regional news magazine programme ATV Today, produced for MACE using 150 short films, has won Best Use of Footage in a Home Entertainment Release at this year’s FOCAL International Awards.
From Headlines to Tight-Lines – The Story of ATV Today celebrates the 15 years it ran from 1964 to 1981 with a wealth of newly digitised footage and new exclusive interviews with reporters and crew who worked on the programme.
I’m pictured below with ATVLAND’s Peter Raven and Stephen Thwaites at the gala ceremony.
Making the DVD has been a labour of love for us all and I’d especially like to thank Peter Raven, Stephen Thwaites and Lee Bannister for producing such a well structured, entertaining and at times poignant documentary for MACE on a budget of zero!
I’d also like to thank ITV for being so supportive in allowing MACE to use the ITV footage which is preserved at MACE in this DVD.
A big thanks to all the interviewees who gave their free time to share their memories of ATV Today on camera.
