Best Programme Acquisition


This award will go to the acquired programme or piece of content that has done the most to improve the performance, profile and credibility of a channel within its target market.

Judges will be looking for an excellent piece of content that has generated both ratings and interest and publicity generated for the channel or platform that acquired it.

Budget will be taken into consideration – the value for money the acquisition delivers will be important, so please provide details of cost per episode.

Acquisitions by any channel will be eligible, including the main PSBs, their sister channels and commercial multichannel broadcasters.
