Sunset+Vine has been awarded Best Sports Programme at the Broadcast Awards 2017 for its coverage of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games for Channel 4.
When explaining why Sunset+Vine had won, the judges said that it was due to the coverage taking an approach that was“fresh and innovative and embraced all the values of the sport and engaged all audiences”.
As part of its commitment to promoting diversity, almost two thirds of the on-screen talent were disabled whilst 15% of the Sunset+Vine production team were also disabled.
The main events at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games were covered by host broadcaster Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS), with Sunset+Vine’s cameras providing additional coverage for the UK audience. This included OB units deployed for the athletics and swimming events and two roving OB teams moving between venues.
The awards were presented by Jonathan Ross at Grosvenor House, London on Wednesday 1st February.
