Judges’ Award

Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning, BBC Television

“We are living through an extraordinarily rich period of television drama in the US and Europe, as well as here in the UK, and this year’s RTS Judges’ Award acknowledges the contribution one executive has made to what many are calling a new golden age.

He was responsible for 7 out of the top 10 most watched dramas of the year and 7 out of 10 of the most appreciated. He has built BBC Two drama into a formidable creative force with titles like Peaky Blinders, The Fall, Line of Duty and The Honourable Woman. And he has successfully introduced a new slate of returning series to BBC One with Sherlock, Call the Midwife, Death in Paradise, Last Tango in Halifax, The Musketeers and Shetland all playing last year. Also in 2014, he introduced Happy Valley and The Missing – two of the most talked about series of the year, greeted with huge critical and audience acclaim. Add to all that single films like Jimmy McGovern’s Common and Peter Bowker’s Marvellous, not to mention a rejuvenated EastEnders, and it would be hard to disagree that our winner has had an extraordinary year.”
