'Gutted' BAFTA Scotland 2004


Having worked for Tern TV as a researcher on 'Gutted' for BBC, the title went onto win 'Best Documentary' at the Scottish BAFTA's in 2004.

The documentary followed the consequences for a small community when the white fish industry collapses.  Fishing is one of Britain's oldest industries, and Fraserburgh was a community who significantly depended on it. This documentary charted the community's reaction to swingeing quota cuts and consequent drastic reduction in the industry. 

This film was screened on BBC Scotland in June 2004, and won BAFTA Scotland Best Documentary in 2004 and Celtic Film Festival Best Documentary in 2005. It was repeated on BBC4 in September 2005, and screened across PBS network in the US as part of WNET's Wide Angle series, showcasing the best documentaries from around the world.
