A BBC3 documentary narrated by Scarlet Johansson has picked up the Best TV Feature/Documentary at the Foreign Press Association’s Awards.
Escape From the World’s Most Dangerous Place, followed 21 year-old model Samira Hashi as she returns to Somalia - the country her family fled when she was three.
The film, narrated by Johansson, explores the war-ravaged capital Mogadishu, refugee camps and a confrontation with women who carry out female genital mutilation on young girls.
The film, from director/producer Steph Atkinson, was made by BBC Current Affairs Salford.
BBC3 also won a prestigious RTS North West Award for Best Network Current Affairs programme with documentary Exposed: Groomed for Sex.
The film was a personal journey by presenter Adil Ray, who went behind the headlines to discover how seriously his own British Pakistani community takes the recent cases of underage girls being groomed for sex by Asian men.
The doc, from director/producer Fran Baker, was made by the BBC’s in-house Religion and Ethics department.
