The Moorside, a two-part BBC One drama based on the kidnapping of Shannon Matthews, has secured seven nominations in The Royal Television Society (RTS) Yorkshire Centre Programme Awards.

The awards, which celebrate excellence in production across the region, will take place at The Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds on Friday 7 July and will be hosted by TV executive Lorraine Heggessey.

The Moorside will compete against ITV’s Emmerdale and Channel 4’s National Treasure for the Drama award; while its lead, Gemma Whelan, will battle it out against John Middleton (Emmerdale, ITV) and Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks, ITV) in the Actor category.

ITV Yorkshire’s regional news and current affairs programme Calendar also secured seven nominations. Presenters Duncan Wood and Christine Talbot will fight it out alongside Charlie Luxton of More 4’s Homes by the Sea for the Presenter title.
