The Sandford St Martin Awards Nominees

CTVC and TrueTube continue to make waves in CHILDREN'S programming with an incredible four nominations of only six in the Children's category.

BAFTA Award-winning educational films LIKE ME and SCREWBALL! are nominated alongside a third TrueTube effort, CHURCH HISTORY IN 10 MINUTES - a quirky, fun animation that packs in more info than most 10 hour documentaries. The same three have also been nominated at the Learning On Screen Awards. All this is hot on the heels of being Highly Commended in the Best Free Digital Content category at the BETT Awards.

But not content with three nominations, MY LIFE: MY BIG PROM, made for CBBC, has also been shortlisted. It tells the inspiring, heart warming and humorous story of Lewis Hine, a remarkable 16 year old who suffers from daily seizures and spends much of his life in hospital. He decided he wanted to create a prom for all those like him who usually miss out on the rites of passage most of us take for granted.

The only bad news is we're competiting against ourselves!

Except in the INTERVIEW category, where we have a nomination for our podcast from the Things Unseen team - RAMADAN: IN CONVERSATION WITH BABAR AHMAD, a man accused of providing material support to terrorism.

As our photo above shows, we've had previous success - but with so many other fantastic productions in the running it's going to be neck and neck this year!
