Al Jazeera scoops award for Bahrain documentary

Rebecca Hawkes RapidTVNews | 24-11-2011

An Al Jazeera documentary covering this years uprising in the island state of Bahrain has been awarded the Media Award for TV feature / documentary by the Foreign Press Association.
Bahrain: Shouting in the Dark, which was first broadcast by Al Jazeera English on 4 August 2011, followed events from the initial demonstration at Manamas Pearl Roundabout to injured protestors flooding the Salmaniya Medical Complex.
Qatar-based Al Jazeera claims to be the only international broadcaster to remain in Bahrain following the security clampdown.
This award is a testament to Al Jazeeras commitment to providing a voice to the voiceless. I am delighted that our documentary has been recognised at the Foreign Press Associations prestigious award ceremony, said Jon Blair, executive producer, Al Jazeera English, after accepting the award in London.
The courage and spirit depicted in the film touched the hearts of people across the globe, added May Welsh, who directed the film. Shouting in the Dark captured the situation on the ground through a mixture of eyewitness reports and raw footage. This award is as much a recognition for the people I met in Bahrain as it is for Al Jazeera.
