The production companies, both based at The Greenhouse, triumphed in the Factual category at the Second International Emmy Kids Awards, held at Chelsea Piers, New York.
Libra managing director Louise Lynch attended the ceremony with the documentary’s director and co-producer, David Barnes of David and Goliath, as well as two of the children who featured in the documentary, Phoebe Maddison and Archie Collins.
Lynch told Prolific North: “We’re delighted to have won and it was an amazing night. A couple of the children featured in the documentary flew out to New York for the ceremony which made it even more special.
“We owe a huge thanks to everyone who worked on the project and helped us pick up the award.”
