Sky News and ITV News have won International Golden Nymph Awards at the 45th Monte Carlo Television Festival.
Dominic Waghorn, Sky News’
correspondent, won the best TV news item category with his report
“Dirty Blood: China’s Aids Crisis”, which revealed that the country’s
unsanitary blood trade is continuing despite government claims that it
ended the practice, which is thought to have infected hundreds of
thousands of people with HIV/Aids.
The award makes it a recent
double for Waghorn, who was named broadcast journalist of the year at
the One World Media Awards in June.
ITV News Middle East correspondent Julian Manyon won a Golden Nymph for the best 24-hour news programme.
and cameraman Sasha Lomakin produced an exclusive at the Beslan school
massacre in September 2004. His report was broadcast live on the
24-hour ITV News Channel.
