Two of the entries put forward by Tigress for the 2014/2015 RTS West of England have been nominated!

Firstly, the superb Monty Halls has been nominated in the Best On-Screen Talent category and is up against some very worthy opponents. Monty has been nominated for the Monty Halls’ Dive Mysteries series and the Divers’ Graveyard episode was put forward to showcase his talent. Monty dives Egypt’s Red Sea to investigate the curse of the Blue Hole.  With up to 100 deaths at this one site, what sinister forces make a dive into the 400 foot deep abyss the most dangerous on earth?

Also nominated for Best Short is Electric Flowers, an insert produced for The One Show. We’ve known for some time that flowers advertise to bees by appealing to their  sense of sight and smell , the brighter and more scented the flower the more pollinators it will attract. A recent study at Bristol University has discovered that bees can also sense an electric field – and they use it to find the best flowers to pollinate. George McGavin investigates.

Both are up against some very worthy competition from the great and the good of the Bristol television production scene. The winners will be announced at the Gala Awards Party and Presentation Ceremony being held on Sunday 8th March at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre.
