BBC Wimbledon programme recognised by Radio Academy

Andy Murray celebrating with the Wimbledon fans.
Tuesday 13 May 2014

BBC Radio 5 Live have been awarded Best Sports Programme for their production 'The Day We Won Wimbledon' at the prestigious 2014 Radio Academy Awards. 

Narrated by John Hurt, the programme looks back at Andy Murray's victory in The Championships 2013, and features interviews with Murray, his mother Judy, Sue Barker, Tim Henman, Gerard Butler and other fans as they relive the Wimbledon final.

The judges said:

"The Day We Won Wimbledon by Radio 5 live beautifully summed up the unbelievable joy, and relief, of the entire nation as Andy Murray was finally crowned champion at SW19 and this documentary had everything – in fact it made you wish you’d produced it yourself! 

"John Hurt’s voice boomed out, outstanding commentary from Jonathan Overend on the day led to a crafted section on Murray’s opponent or the so called ‘Bond villain’ while all the main players – even an enthusiastic Gerard Butler – brought us back to that moment in July 2013. 

"After the Olympics they said we’d never have a summer like it again – Murray made sure we did and 5 live produced the gold standard sports programme of the year."

The BBC were also awarded Best Promotional Campaign for their Wimbledon campaign, which was created by BBC Global News Creative Services for BBC World Service.

Live @ Wimbledon Radio, the official radio channel of The Championships, was also shortlisted at the Radio Academy Awards, in the highly competitive 'Best Coverage of a Live Event' category.

20:24...But boy, it was a barrow-load of fun. I hope you enjoyed it even half as much as we did. Thank you for all your messages throughout, you've been the glue holding us together as the edges frayed amid the madness. Now if you'll excuse me, it's time for us Brits to raise a toast to Andy Murray and Fred Perry. British sporting legends both.

20:19It was the wackiest of Wimbledons with the most unlikely of headline-makers: Sergiy Stakhovsky, Steve Darcis, Michelle Larcher de Brito, Kimiko-Date Krumm, Jerzy Janowicz, Sabine Lisicki, Marion Bartoli...
