Trustees' Award

Mike Salisbury

The Grierson Trust was delighted to present the Trustees' Award, which recognises an outstanding contribution to the art of documentary, to Mike Salisbury.
Mike was born in March 1942 and brought up in Hertfordshire, where as a teenager he developed a passion for photographing the countryside and a taste for watching nature documentaries on T.V. After a spell in Swaziland for V.S.O he started his own television career at the BBC in London, working as a Research Assistant on the early Michael Parkinson chat shows and on films for the Tuesday Documentary series. He then had a two-year spell as a researcher for Horizon before moving, in 1974, to the BBC Natural History Unit in Bristol, where he was on the staff for over thirty years.
