Armistice broadcast from Arboretum wins awards

1 November 2009

The National Memorial Arboretum and its staff have received high praise from ITV Central after the broadcaster won two awards at the Royal Television Society (RTS) Midlands Awards for broadcasts from the Arboretum for Remembrance in 2008.

"Armistice" was screened on Central Tonight and won the Best News Programme and ITV Central also won the Best Regional Programme on the strength of two regional editions broadcast live from Alrewas.

Gareth Owen from ITV Central said "Those programmes (and the plaudits we received last week) would not have been possible without you and the team. I know that I speak for everyone here at ITV Central when I once again thank the National Memorial Arboretum for its help on that day, and its continued help ever since."
