In Cold Blood Wins the International Emmy

Delighted to hear that In Cold Blood has won the International Emmy in the Current Affairs category. Congratulations to director Marcus Plowright and the whole team at DSP

Produced by DSP for ITV Network, this feature-length documentary examined the biggest treatment disaster in NHS history. Directed by Grierson Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated documentary maker Marcus Plowright, this film told the story of how thousands of British haemophiliacs were infected and died from HIV and Hepatitis C after being prescribed infected blood products by the NHS. This landmark film offered viewers a vivid insight into the scale and impact of the tragedy.

In Cold Blood nominated for a Grierson

Delighted that In Cold Blood has been nominated for a Grierson Trust Award, in the Best Current Affairs Documentary category. Congratulations to director Marcus Plowright and the team at Darlow Smithson Productions

 

Grayson’s Art Club

During the Covid-19 lockdown, Grayson Perry, one of Britain’s leading creative talents, invited the UK to join his art club in a mission to unleash our collective creativity and unite the nation through art. A Swan Films production for Channel 4

 

My soundtrack for Grayson Perry’s Art Club is available exclusively on Bandcamp, with all ongoing proceeds from the release donated to Workshop 305 an arts-focused social enterprise in Wimbledon that works with people that have learning or physical disabilities. Their well-equipped, spacious studios offer a stimulating variety of art and craft activity, a friendly and supportive environment and the space for a group of individuals to share a sense of community, purpose and achievement. As a social enterprise, all of their profits are used to support the work that they do, both in-house and in the wider community.

 

★★★★ THE TELEGRAPH | Judith Woods
Appointment television is back – and it’s a bona fide masterpiece. In the midst of lockdown, a quirky Channel 4 series has brought the nation together and served up not just creativity but a slice of British life like no other.
