London-based TBI Media has been awarded the highest honour of a Grand Trophy at the New York Festivals, plus an additional eight awards.
The production company won four Golds, three Silvers and a Bronze.
TBI’s “Titanic – Minute by Minute” received the honour in the History category for its live programme documenting the Titanic disaster in real time.
The documentary received two Golds for Best Music Special and History along with a Silver for Best Drama Special. “The Beach Boys at 50” garnered a Gold in Best Music Special and “12 Hours to Please Me” received a Gold for Best Special Event and a Silver for Best Music Special. “Islam Without God” Religious Programs earned a Silver, and “Belongings” was awarded a Bronze for Social Issues.
Phil Critchlow, Founding Director, TBI Media UK: “We are incredibly proud of the trophies we have from past New York Festivals Radio Awards, and so we’re completely thrilled with this year’s results. Four Gold’s, three silvers and a bronze would have been unbelievable enough but for me personally, for the company I started with a list of ideas on a note pad 6 years ago to win Indie of The Year is absolutely fantastic and testimony quite simply to a wonderful team at TBI.”
