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.
