Behind the Scenes

Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns Proud Link with the BAFTAs

A bit of a cheeky title really, but we have been watching the BAFTA awards this evening, scouring every table for views of our daughter, Ruthie who we know was there and our nephew, Tim Cragg, who should have been there but we didn’t see him either… ! Not a glimpse of either of them did we spot but to our enormous pleasure and pride,  Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenboroughthe film ‘starirng’ Sir David Attenborough that they all at Atlantic Productions have been working on with Sky3 won the specialist factual award.

Ground breaking 3D technology and David Attenborough is an unbeatable combination, and we are very proud of nephew Tim Cragg, who as the Director of Photography had already won the Bafta Specialist Factual Award for this film. Did we know? Not until I discovered by accident a minute ago while looking at the clips of the film – Tim is such a quietly talented and lovely man, so refreshingly modest about his talents – unlike his aunt and uncle, whoi would shout them from the hilltops if only they knew about them. If you look at the awards on his website you’ll see what I mean.

  1. Daughter Ruthie has emailed a comment for this post:

    Re BAFTA: we won the BAFTA in the Specialist Factual Category. So that’s what Tim refers to on his website – it’s not an additional photography award specific to him (although there should be).

  2. Sorry! It was all a bit misleading, reading the blurb and it turns out I got it slightly wrong. In my defense, Tim has won numerous awards including a previous BAFTA so I could have been right!
