Love Productions’ two-part Channel 4 documentary Make Bradford British (pictured) has taken the prize for best reality and factual entertainment title at the Rose d’Or awards in Brussels.

The doc looks at the level of integration between Muslim and non-Muslim communities in Bradford, West Yorkshire, and first aired on the UK terrestrial in March 2012.

Elsewhere, Eagle Rock Entertainment’s BBC doc Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender triumphed in the arts category; while Gruen Sweat, a four-parter from Zapruder’s Other Films for Australian broadcaster ABC, was victorious in the entertainment category.

Jon Casimir, exec producer of Gruen Sweat for┬áCordell Jigsaw Zapruder,┬ásaid: “This is a tribute to a bunch of people who’ve put so much effort into Gruen over the past five years.

“It’s a tribute to the ABC, a supportive and loving partner in this unlikely venture. And it’s a tribute to a viewing public which has pushed us to keep changing and, hopefully, improving.”

Finally, the winner in the game show category was Oh Sit!, a coproduction from The Gurin Company, 405 Productions, Raquel Productions and Warner Horizon for U.S. terrestrial The CW.

The winners were named last night (May 30) at a ceremony hosted by Dutch TV personality Lucille Werner, with guests Princess Astrid and Prince Lorenz of Belgium in attendance. This year marked the first time in 52 years the awards were held outside of Switzerland.
