07 December 2012

The 2012 Sky WFTV Awards take place today, with this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award going to drama producer Ruth Caleb.

Caleb is being recognised for her contribution to the industry over a 40-year career which includes producer credits on Pat and Margaret (1994) which starred Julie Walters and her comedy collaborator Victoria Wood, BAFTA-nominated Last Resort (2000), starring Paddy Considine and directed by Pawel Pawkujiwsju, and Bullet Boy (2004) starring Ashley Walters.

Her executive producer credits include A Short Stay in Switzerland (2009), for which Walters won a TV BAFTA and The Last Days of Lehman Brothers (2009). Caleb’s TV drama Care won the 2001 BAFTA for best single drama.

She is currently working with Argonon’s drama arm Leopardrama, the indie behind An Englishman in New York, on a number of upcoming projects, including a feature film about the life of entertainer Danny La Rue and the Terence Davies feature film Mother of Sorrows.

Julie Walters, who received the WFTV Lifetime Achievement Award herself in 2010, will present the award to Caleb.

Comedian Sue Perkins is hosting this year’s WFTV Awards. Perkins picked up The BBC News and Factual Award at last year’s Sky WFTV Awards. She has just finished penning and starring in her much anticipated sitcom Heading Out, to be shown on BBC2 next year.

There are fourteen awards categories.
