International Emmys for Dutch and UK news

UK and Dutch news operations both picked up International Emmys for their separate coverage of the Beslan tragedy – the first time the Netherlands has won an International Emmy for news.

Associated Press Television News in the UK won the 2005 International Emmy for Breaking News for its Beslan coverage, while the Netherlands’ NCRV picked up the award for Continuing News Coverage for its Return to Beslan.

Shashi Tharoor, undersecretary general of communications and public information for the United Nations, presented the awards during a black-tie event in New York City.

“Television news is a tough, demanding and important part of our industry. We had an outstanding group of nominees this year, and the winners truly demonstrate the excellence in television for which the Emmys stand,” said Bruce Paisner, president and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and president of Hearst Entertainment.

Nominees for nine other International Emmy Award categories will be announced on October 17 at Mipcom, in Cannes. Winners will receive their awards at the 33rd International Emmy Awards Gala on November 21 in New York.
