The council of the Guild of Television Cameramen (GTC) has chosen documentary filmmaker Paul Berriff OBE as the 2017 winner of its Television Cameraman’s Award (TiCA).

The TiCA is awarded to an individual who, in the opinion of the Council, has furthered the cause of the GTC by fostering and improving the art and craft of professional television cameramen.

Starting his career as a photographer, Berrif joined BBC TV News in Leeds in 1967 before going on to make numerous documentaries including 9/11 A Firefighters’ Story, for Channel 5.

Berriff will receive his award, and talk to guests, at the GTC Awards Day in May.
