Will And Richard

It really was Liquid Gold.

The University of Alabama’s Center for Public Television and Radio, in collaboration with WVUA 23, won an Emmy for their short documentary about WVUA 23’s Chief Meteorologist Richard Scott and his beekeeping hobby.

Scott started his bee-focused journey after he said he noticed a lack of them around his community. You can watch the full five-minute documentary right here.

Emmy-winning CPT Video Producer William Green worked with a team of professional and student videographers on bringing “Liquid Gold” to life.

With the help of Angel Caro, Kailey New and Dawson Estes, the short documentary won a SouthEastern Regional Emmy in Outstanding Environment/Science – Short Form Content.

“We were out in the Alabama sun, full beekeeping suits with gloves on operating cameras and being swarmed by bees,” Green said. “It was a tough filming environment, but incredibly interesting to see the process of how bees operate inside a colony.”
