A documentary highlighting the BBC’s pro-Union coverage of Scotland’s independence referendum has been nominated for two prestigious awards.
London Calling, directed by filmmaker Alan Knight, is in line for two Wincott awards, Journalism of the year and also the Video journalism award. It was nominated for the awards by London based Dartmouth Films.
The documentary, which has been ignored by Scotland’s main stream media, was released in 2016 and has been seen by over one hundred thousand people. It features writer Paul Kavanagh and former Ambassador to Uzbekistan, Craig Murray.
The film contains several examples of pro-Union bias on the part of the BBC in the run-up to the historic September 2014 vote.
Its nomination for two Wincott awards will be seen by many as validation for the documentary which was inspired by the book ‘London Calling: How the BBC stole the Referendum‘ by GA Ponsonby.
The Wincott Foundation was set up in 1969 in honour of Harold Wincott, the most distinguished economic journalist of his day.
