Channel 4 scoops three gongs at One World Media Awards
Channel 4′s investigation, which prompted a call by the UK foreign office for an independent investigation, won the television and documentary awards
Channel 4 documentary Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields, which at the time was described by presenter Jon Snow as "one of the most important" stories he had ever reported, collected two prizes at the One World Media Awards last night.
The programme, which prompted calls from the UK Foreign Office for an independent investigation of alleged war crimes during the 2009 military operation in Sri Lanka, was named the winner of both the documentary award and television award.
The awards, which recognise quality reporting of foreign affairs and the developing world, also named Channel 4‘s Jamal Osman as Journalist of the Year, for his work reporting from Somalia.
