***MOONEY GOES WILD WINS ROSE D'OR AWARD!!***
The prestigious annual Rose D'Or Awards (now in their 55th year) honour the very best of international radio, TV and online entertainment programmes, and the 2016 awards ceremony took place on Tuesday, September 13th 2016. Over 400 programmes from more than 130 broadcasters and production companies in 33 different countries were submitted for this year’s Rose d’Or awards.
