TV award on show at RMCH!
The four-part TV
documentary series "Kid's Hospital: Your Child in Their
Hands" that aired on Channel 5 in May won the Royal Television
Society North West Award for Best Factual Series at a ceremony in
Manchester last month.
Last week staff and patients at RMCH got the chance to see
the trophy, including four year old Eliza Gornal who underwent a
renal transplant with a kidney donated by her father in one of the
episodes. Eliza is pictured right with her mum Debbie and
transplant surgeon Afshin Tavakoli who performed the operation and
had also appeared in the episode.
The series, made by TV production company Films of Record,
was a hard-hitting and emotional journey that focused on a number
of children being treated at RMCH, often for chronic conditions or
in emergency situations, through the eyes of their parents.
Films of Record had previously made two stand-alone documentaries
on RMCH at Christmas which were broadcast by Channel 5 in 2014 and
