David Dimbleby receives lifetime achievement award

25th February 2011

Broadcaster and author David Dimbleby has received a lifetime achievement prize in recognition of his contribution to the UK media.

The Question Time presenter, whose published works include Seven Ages of Britain and How We Built Britain, collected the prize at the Royal Television Society's Journalism Awards in London.

Dimbleby began his career as a news reporter and soon followed in the footsteps of his father Richard by presenting Panorama, as well as anchoring every general election broadcast since 1979.

He has presented a number of programmes on the history of the British Isles and written the accompanying books, including A Picture of Britain, in which he explores British and Irish art, poetry, music and landscapes.

Presenting the award to the 72-year-old broadcaster, the judges said: 'This goes to a giant of television journalism. The judges believe it is fitting to acknowledge his outstanding contribution this year which - remarkably - is his 50th working for the BBC.'
