Double nomination at the BAFTAs
Panorama nominated for BAFTAs
Panorama has received two nominations in the BAFTA awards.

The Corruption of Racing and A Licence to Murder programmes were both nominated in the Current Affairs category.

They face competition from John Pilger's Palestine is Still the Issue and Channel Four's Young, Nazi and Proud programmes for the prestigious prize.

The investigation into corruption in horse racing has already won one major prize this year, the Royal Television Society Home Current Affairs award.

Resignation

It was broadcast in October 2002, after two High Court battles, and made a claim that a generation of jockeys had been involved in corruption.

The programme led to the resignation of the Jockey Club's head of security Jeremy Phipps and proposals for a new independent regulatory body for the sport.

Licence to Murder was a two part documentary broadcast in June 2002.

It revealed the extent to which some members of the British intelligence services colluded with - and even tried to direct - loyalist death squads in Northern Ireland.

Investigation

John Ware uncovered the role of Military Intelligence and RUC Special Branch officers in one of the most brutal and controversial murders of the "troubles": that of Belfast solicitor, Patrick Finucane.

The programme has led to a new police investigation into the death of Mr Finucane headed by Metropolitan police commissioner Sir John Stevens.

The winners will be announced on April 13, 2003.
