Morgana Robinson's Summer - Winners' Acceptance Speech, Short Form Programme, Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards in 2018

13 May 2018

Winners' acceptance speech on behalf of the production team for Morgana Robinson's Summer in the Short Form category

SHARON HORGAN: Oh my gosh.  We are really delighted and really surprised.  We would like to thank Sky Arts, in particular Jon Mountague, for getting behind us.  I would like to thank Morgana for being an amazing inspiration, and Clelia and MJ and Jane. We made this short and a bunch of other shorts so we could showcase female directors who weren't really getting an opportunity to make longer form programmes. So, we want to thank all those female directors for coming on this journey with us.

There's a whole new breed of female directing talent out there. It's no big risk to work with them. The work will be better for it. So, thank you very much.

MORGANA ROBINSON: I would also like to say thank you to John Noel and especially a big thank you to Tiffany Agbeko for getting us all together in the first place.  And all the cast and crew, Jo Jenkins. 

Yes, we love you. Thank you.
