The variety of individual awards recognised here, from compelling podcasts such as I’m Not A Monster: The Shamima Begum Story and Missing Madonna through to powerful documentaries like Generation Shame and dramas such as This Thing of Darkness is testament to the extraordinary range and quality of our audio output and deserved recognition of the brilliant teams across the UK that produce amazing content for the BBC.
