    RTS drops educational TV awards

    The Royal Television Society has pulled this year's educational television awards for the first time in almost two decades because they are no longer financially viable. The RTS has seen entries and attendance levels fall in recent years and the educational awards – which date back to the 1980s but were first staged as a standalone event in 1991 – have been running at a loss. Given the current economic environment, the RTS has decided to scrap this year's ceremony, scheduled for June. The awards were held to "recognise the best in audiovisual support for learning" from pre-school programming to ***** education. The RTS will still stage six other awards ceremonies this year, including next week's journalism awards, to be hosted by Sophie Raworth, and the programme awards in March, which will be hosted by Rob Brydon.
