AWARDS - 2000


Panorama has won a number of awards for its programmes made during 2000.

BT Awards for Wales
Celtic International Film and Television Awards
Broadcasting Press Guild Awards
RTS Journalism Awards
Broadcast Awards

Bafta Cymru - 24 June 2001
Best Current Affairs Programme: Power to Abuse

BT Awards for Wales - 2 May 2001
Current Affairs Programme of the Year: Power to Abuse
Panorama - Power to Abuse
Power to Abuse has won three awards
"The judges said the programme was 'truly outstanding'. To penetrate the cloisters of the Roman Catholic church and ultimately cause the downfall of an archbishop was 'a magnificent feat of investigative journalism' and was a story told without descending into sensationalism."

Celtic International Film and Television Awards - 31 March 2001
Best Current Affairs Programme: Power to Abuse

Broadcasting Press Guild Awards - 30 March 2001
Best Single Documentary: Who Bombed Omagh?
The Guild commended Panorama saying that 'Who Bombed Omagh?' was an "outstanding piece of journalistic investigation".

RTS Journalism Awards - 28 February 2001
Home Current Affairs: Who Bombed Omagh?
The judges said, "This was chosen as an outstanding example of investigative current affairs. It was considered an immensely brave film that had required boldness on the part of its journalists and the managers in bringing it to air."

Television Journalist of the Year: John Ware
John Ware
John Ware was named Television Journalist of the Year by the RTS
The judges said, "The winner of this award has been a professional irritant in the very best journalistic tradition for many years, going back to his days on World In Action and more recently at the BBC and notwithstanding his many previous efforts, this year has been an excellent one for him. Two programmes which stood out were his forensic examination of health service statistics, exposing the fact that government figures counted money spent more than once - from the man who famously undid Lady Porter's housing policy this is impartiality indeed - but the programme for which in the mind of the judges he deserves most credit was for his outstanding Panorama on the Omagh bombers."

Programme of the Year: Who Bombed Omagh?
The judges said, "The winner of the award this year was careful, brave and memorable. A quite extraordinary piece of television journalism combined with television film-making of the highest quality. The combination of the forensic deconstruction of events with powerful personal testimony made for a very strong programme indeed. The embodiment of Panorama at its very best."

Broadcast Awards - 31 January 2001
Best News Programme: England's Shame
The judges said, "The government almost certainly introduced legislation to prevent hooligans travelling abroad as a result of this film - underlining the key role Panorama plays in political debate."
