Calderdale filmed drama Ackley Bridge is up for seven awards at the annual Royal Television Society’s Yorkshire Centre Programme Awards.
The Channel 4 show, which recently returned to our screens for its second series, is up for awards in seven categories including best actor, best drama and best writer.
The awards celebrate excellence in content production across all platforms, formats and genres and reflect the exceptional quality, originality and skill in Yorkshire.
