By - Richard - 9th February 2010

Race Across America has been nominated for a prestigious West of England Royal Television Society Award.

The one hour film charts the remarkable journey of a solo British cyclist Jim Rees attempting to break the British record for cycling over 3000 miles across the USA.

This is the third award nomination for the film having won ‘Best Sports Documentary’ at the European Mefest film festival and notching up a nomination for ‘Best Television Production’ at the Media Innovation Awards 2009.

The Royal Television Society Awards will be held later in the month.
