Awarded the Royal Television Society Judges' Award at the RTS Craft and Design Awards.
"Technically the whole production was a huge achievement, reflected in the ingenuity and imagination of everyone concerned in its making. The graphics were very sophisticated and it was evident that there had been great advances in their design and use. There was a clarity and confidence in the information that was being delivered to the viewer, and the ability and speed of turning round the information in a live, real time situation was extraordinary. The seamless integration of the graphics into the studio set environment was very well done. This was some of the best use of VR seen on television, again particularly as it was a live situation."
