Well, YOU try thinking of snappy titles, then. Anyway, Back to Earth has been shortlisted for the MediaGuardian award for Best Non-Terrestrial Programme; an interesting and no doubt shortly-to-be-outdated category, especially as two of the other shows on the list, Being Human and The Inbetweeners, are being repeated on the respective terrestrial channels.
Dave is also up for Best Non-Terrestrial channel, an encouraging recognition of its original content in These Difficult Times. Who’s going to make the final decision? Why, the live Edinburgh festival audience, of course, and ideally, it’s hosted by Michael McIntyre, the comedian for those who don’t really like comedy very much.
But that’s not all! The sound work on BTE is up for the Conch Award (clever), against such titans of audio pleasure as Top Gear and the MTV European Music Awards, which will be announced on September 22nd.
Ah, bless TOS and its doing-our-work-for-us…
