November saw our Social Care TV film “Getting to know the person with dementia” win its category (Best factual new media) at the Older People Media Awards 2013 (Twitter hashtag #opma2013). Produced by Media19 for the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE), the entry was up against strong competition. Gavin and Stacey/ Eastenders star Larry Lamb handed the award to three of the film’s contributors; Ian, Harry and Roy; along with Lynda Hughes, Forget Me Not Centre and Swindon Later Life Therapy Team Manager. They were delighted with the victory and SCIE’s Chair Lord Michael Bichard has sent his congratulations to the contributors. Other categories saw awards and nominations go to high-profile media outlets such as Panorama, the Guardian and the Times.
