The Isle of Media has sponsored a category in the prestigious Grierson Awards. With the Isle of Man being awarded status as a UNESCO World Biosphere Region in 2016, for it’s achievements in natural, historic and cultural conservation, environmentally sensitive economic development and the Island’s continuing commitment to education; the Isle of Media chose the category with an appropriate fit – Best Natural History Documentary. This award is for the best in class for a single documentary, or an episode from a strand or series, which addresses any aspect of natural history.
