I am Incredibly proud to have received a nomination in the Original Music Score category for ‘Spotlight on The Troubles: A Secret History’ for the RTS NI Programme Awards. Thank you to RTS Northern Ireland for this nomination. The winner will be announced on 12th November, virtually this year.

A huge thank you to the incredibly talented production team at BBC Northern Ireland that I worked with on this landmark series, especially series producer Chris Thornton for believing in me and bringing me on board for the challenge. I am very proud to have played a small part in this remarkable documentary series, which uncovered a series of revelations about the decades-long conflict that tragically claimed so many lives.

And a big thank you to my music team and the musicians who played on my soundtrack.

Back in February ‘Spotlight on the Troubles: A Secret History’ won the RTS National Current Affairs award:

“The winning entry demonstrated both brilliant storytelling and wonderfully evocative film making. It was a complex story that was well pulled together and included stunning new revelations. Altogether a great piece of investigative journalism.”
