The Last Survivors- Winner's Acceptance Speech, Single Documentary, Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards in 2020

31 July 2020

Winner's acceptance speech by The Last Survivors team for Single Documentary, given in honour of Robert Flaherty

UNIDENTIFIED : We’re actually delighted to win the award. It was an absolute privilege to make this series and I made it with an extraordinary production team and really wanted to share this moment with Maurice Splik. Maurice is one of the survivors from the film, he’s a sculptor and he lived through Bergan Belsen when he was four years old.

MAURICE SPLIK: It demonstrates how people can go through the most awful atrocities and adversity and still come out at the end with a view of life that is worth living.
