The British Television Advertising Awards 1997: Top Production Company: The Samuelson Film Services Award - Paul Weiland Film Company

For an astonishing fourth successive year, the Paul Weiland Film Company has been nominated top production company. With five of the company’s directors earning recognition at this year’s awards, the Paul Weiland Film Company deserves the plaudits for remaining in top position for so long and for ensuring that its directors remain in the enviable position of choosing to shoot only the best and most challenging scripts available. The company’s on-going work for the Army (top) shows no sign of losing any of its dramatic impact.

Airways, Pizza Hut, Walkers, Capital Radio and Persil.
