Film and TV Funding Award Finalists 2019

Who We Are

We seek to use the generous legacy of our namesake, pioneering broadcaster Alan Whicker, to support emerging film and audio documentary-makers in the production of director-led programmes and to recognise exceptional audio that has already been broadcast.
