Winner's acceptance speech for Suffragettes with Lucy Worsley in the Specialist Factual category

EMMA HINDLEY:  Blimey.  Right.  Okay, quickly.  

Thank you to the BBC for commissioning us to make this film.  Thank you to BAFTA for giving us the award.  Thank you to Zinc Media.  Thank you to our amazing young actors who played our Suffragettes so brilliantly.  Thank you to my incredible team; only a small proportion of them are here now, but they were just amazing.  Thank you to the most talented director there is, Emma Frank.  And lastly, thank you to the amazing Lucy.  She's such a star.

LUCY WORSLEY:  We have loved making this programme, but we've also, all of us, been left, I think, with a bit of a sense of unfinished business.

Our favourite people at the Women's March last year, maybe you saw them, they were the people dressed as Suffragettes, the ones with the signs that said, "It's 100 years later and it's still a bit rubbish".  Yes!  

Thank you so much.

EMMA HINDLEY:  Up the women!
