Congrats to the Emmy-Winning BBC World News America

From today’s press release: BBC World News America triumphed at the Emmy® Awards for Business and Financial Reporting today.

The program won for Return to White Horse Village in the category for Outstanding Interpretation or Analysis of a Business News Story in a Regularly Scheduled Newscast.

In the report, the BBC’s Carrie Gracie returned to a Chinese farming village to witness first-hand how its landscape and people have been transformed by urbanization.  The report followed-up last year’s Peabody award-winning White Horse Village, a poignant three-part story detailing the village’s transformation into a city.

While not British himself—he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri—he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
