Newsnight wins - again

Ian Lacey | 16:27 UK time, Tuesday, 8 July 2008

Congratulations to our own Tim Whewell, his producer Caroline Pare, and editor Phil Clarkson who have just won Best Television Feature at this year's Diageo Africa Business Reporting Awards for their investigation - China in Congo.

The judges called the film, "A very high quality production which asks all the right questions and clearly articulates the influence of China in Africa."

It's the second year running Newsnight has won the award, Paul Mason's report on Kenya mobiles winning in 2007.

The team's companion film on the souring of Chinese investment in Zambia can be seen on Newsnight's in-depth section on China.

(And the DR Congo film triumphed despite the fact I managed to lose one of Caroline's tapes somewhere between my desk and the Newsnight library...)
