Keo Films’ BBC2 series Once Upon a Time in Northern Ireland has repeated the success of its 2021 Iraq-focussed predecessor with a brace of Grierson Trust Award wins.

The five-part series, co-produced with Walk on Air Films, was named both best istory documentary and best documentary series at this year’s awards, which were held last night.

In the 2021 Awards, Once Upon a Time in Iraq won the same two awards.

Other notable winners at this year’s awards included Atomized Studios/Red Bull Studios’ BBC1 doc The Real Mo Farah (best sports documentary), BBC Studios’ Chris Packham-fronted BBC doc Inside Our Autistic Minds (best science documentary), Channel 4’s Lyra, from Eric Starling Productions, TG4 and Hidden Light (best single documentary – domestic) and Vox Media’s Apple TV+ series Monster Factory (best constructed documentary series).

In current affairs, meanwhile, Disney+ edged out competition from ITV and Channel 4 to win for National Geographic Documentary Films’ Afghanisan war doc Retrograde.
