A TV documentary about the Hillsborough Disaster which can’t currently be shown in the UK has been nominated by an Emmy.
The two hour film Hillsborough can’t be seen to avoid breaking a contempt of court ruling imposed during the current inquests in Warrington.
It is based on the research carried out by Professor Phil Scraton, who was a member of the Hillsborough Independent Panel and main author of its report.
The report led to the new inquests, to the current IPCC investigation and to a full criminal inquiry.
The documentary which was directed by Dan Gordon is shortlisted for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Film-making at the annual awards highlighting the best in TV in Los Angeles in August. It was co-produced by the BBC.
