Beti and David: Lost for Words
“A moving portrait of love, loss and kindness… The more people that watch this profound film on the iPlayer the better. Beautifully filmed by director Will Davies, it illustrated the consoling Larkinesque idea embodied in David’s enduring kisses and cheerful smiles: when everything else has evanesced, all that remains of us is love.” Jasper Rees, Daily Telegraph
“[A] most powerful illustration of what love is… reflecting the couple’s day-to-day lives in unflinching detail – [it] made for almost unbearable viewing. Yet how else would the true picture of what it’s like for families living with dementia emerge?” Carolyn Hitt, Western Mail
“Wales and the Great War, presented by author and broadcaster Trevor Fishlock, is a testament to the important part played by the Welsh during the 1914-1918 conflict. The three-part series is a sensitive and intelligent portrayal of the lives of those who were lost… [It] marks that sacrifice, felt in communities across Wales, in a sombre and appropriate manner.” Kirstie McCrum, Western Mail
“Greg has written a number of features tackling serious human rights issues – all with a genuine desire to expose the facts and raise awareness about the issue in hand. I think he has an outstanding ability to remain calm and non-inflammatory. He explores his subject in depth, researches it thoroughly and what you get is a good overview of an often misunderstood topic.” Eleanor White, (then) programme director, Amnesty International Wales
“We would like to express our thanks to Greg Lewis, producer of Wales This Week: Hidden Killer for ITV Wales for this extraordinary piece of documentary investigation in the best traditions of balanced, factual, investigative journalism.” Michael Lees, UK Asbestos in Schools Campaign
“Greg’s work challenged the myths surrounding asylum seekers.” Lord Herman Ouseley, Ned Temko (Editor, Jewish Chronicle) & Geraint Talfan Davies (former controller BBC Wales) Judges, Commission for Racial Equality, Race in the Media awards 2002
“The programme has already proved a valuable teaching resource – the in-depth, sympathetic view of the contrasting journeys of two people with dementia and their families is a real asset.” Prof Bob Woods, Dementia Services Development Centre, on ‘Living With Dementia’, a half-hour documentary for ITV Wales.
“A frank, in-depth study spotlighting a forgotten hero of the boxing world.” Judges in Wishing Shelf Awards giving non-fiction prize to ‘I Fought Them All’.
“Great programme… thanks for a balanced and well informed look at the state of the (housing) sector.” Chartered Institute of Housing Cymru on ‘Wales This Week: The Market Stalls’
“Many thanks for producing the fine programme on Petty Officer Edgar Evans… I particularly appreciated your using persons from Cardiff, Swansea and elsewhere, relatives, museums staff and authors, to build up a picture of this under-rated Welshman.” Gary Gregor, author ‘Edgar Evans of Gower’, on ‘Wales This Week: A Forgotten Hero’
