Reeta Chakrabarti announces why our special investigation won the national RTS award for best documentary

In her acceptance speech our Series Editor Jacqui Hodgson explains the extraordinary background to getting this film on air.

In making the award the panel said: "The judges were blown away by the originality and the journalism behind this story, which took two years to make. It was a quality production with the technical elements skillfully directed. The small team had clearly invested heavily in this hard-to-tell story and overcame legal hurdles to ensure it was broadcast… a standout piece of journalism that raises important moral questions about the secret world of paid informers.
