Casualty - Winner's Acceptance Speech, Soap & Continuing Drama, Virgin TV British Academy Television Awards in 2018

13 May 2018

Winner's acceptance speech on behalf of the production team for Casualty in the Soap and Continuing Drama category

GEORGE RAINSFORD: Thank you.  This is absolutely incredible.  Thank you to BAFTA for this and for a wonderful evening.

We would like to thank everyone who watches the show.  The doors of Holby City hospital have been open for 32 years now, which is an amazing achievement, especially when you consider the dubious mortality rates of both patients and staff there.

Congratulations too to all the other nominees in this category.  Maintaining the high standards of a long‑running drama like these, wouldn't be possible without a large team of dedicated, upbeat, talented people, and I'm very pleased to say that we're lucky enough to have those at Casualty.

So, this is for you, for everybody involved with the show, who work so hard to make it what it is.  Thank you.
