Make Bradford British Scoops International Accolade
Channel 4's Make Bradford British won the Rose d'Or for best reality and factual entertainment series.
Broadcast in 2012 by Channel 4, and produced by Love Productions, Make Bradford British was a major two-part series exploring what it means to be British. It brought together some of Bradford's residents - all British citizens, but from different races and backgrounds - to see if they could up with a common notion of the thread that binds them all together; what it means to be British. The series used the Government's Life in the UK Test as a prism to explore British-ness, overcoming stereotypes and preconceptions to uncover the shared values and common ground in what it means to be British.
Jay Hunt, Channel 4’s Chief Creative Officer said: “Make Bradford British was a brilliantly imaginative looking at multiculturalism today. It’s fantastic that its innovation has been recognised with the Rose D’Or.”
