Phil Redmond is to receive the prestigious Broadcasting Press Guild, Harvey Lee Award for his “Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting” at a ceremony later today at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, London.

With credits to his name including Grange Hill, Brookside and Hollyoaks and also an industry pioneer and visionary, the Guild felt it was the correct time to honour his contribution following the 30th Anniversary of Grange Hill.
