Howlett Media Productions has won the Grand Award at the New York Festivals for a documentary about The Beatles made for BBC Radio 2.
Beatles historian Kevin Howlett earned the prize for his musical documentary celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Abbey road.
He wrote and produced two documentaries that went deep into the creation of the last album the Beatles recorded together. Himesh Patel, star of the movie Yesterday, presented it, and it was broadcast on BBC Radio 2 in the UK and SIRIUS XM in the States.
Kevin said: “It is such an honour to have Abbey Road Phase One and Phase Two recognised in this way by an international Grand Jury of very talented radio people.
“Through many years of producing programs, my goal has always been to move the listener by blending great music with inspiring speech. Well, there was undoubtedly great music to feature in this series.
The Awards were announced last week online when the ceremony was meant to take place before it was cancelled due to COVID-19.
