What were the best European environmental TV documentaries, TV dramas, and web-based films last year? The answer came at the Environment in Television and New Media Awards Evening held in London on 23 November.

A short list was drawn up from hundreds of applicants from all over Europe and the winners were announced in true Oscar "ripping open the envelope" style. There were three categories: TV General Programming, TV Documentary & Drama, and New Media.

The EFDA* produced film "Fusion 2100" won the best New Media prize! Warmest congratulations to everybody who contributed to making this exceptional film with a special mention for Isabella Milch, MPP Garching, and Örs Bendekfi from EFDA. Watch the movie here:

Lord David Puttnam, Oscar-winning film producer, politician, and advocate for environmentally-responsible energy, gave the keynote address underlining the role of the media in explaining the truth about climate charge. Two other fusion films were shortlisted for the prizes: "ITER Bien Sûr," produced by Télévision Locale Provence, and "From Here to Eternity," by ITER Communication, edited by Myriam Jacobs. Watch the shortlisted movies here:

From here to eternity

At the end of the ceremony, there was a vote on what should be done right now to confront environmental damage. "A crash program of carbon-friendly energy provision" was overwhelmingly elected.

A good night for fusion.
