A series about the Titanic featuring Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman, who was once a shipyard welder, has been nominated for a National Television Award.
The programme has been nominated in the Best Factual Series category and its screening marked the centenary of the sinking of the famous liner after it struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage.
Before Goodman was a ballroom dancer he was a welder at Harland and Wolff in England.
Executive producer John Farren said: “I was delighted to see the story of a Northern Irish icon being made from our Irish base.
“It’s a great time to work in television in Northern Ireland as there is a real sense of gathering momentum in the country and I really hope everyone in Northern Ireland will vote for the show so that the profile of the country’s television industry is raised even further,” he added.
Titanic With Len Goodman was also broadcast on the PBS channel in the US and proved to one of the channel’s highest rated factual shows.
Voting in the National Television Awards is open to the public at www.nationaltvawards.com until October 11.
The awards ceremony is on January 23, 2013.
