Editor Susanne Hohmeyer-Lichtblau received an award for her short programme piece, “Diagnosis Cancer” (“Diagnose Krebs”), that had been aired on “Thank God!” The secular jury said the main reason for awarding “Diagnosis Cancer” as the “best programme under six minutes” was the excellent dramaturgy of the film and cameraman Andreas Lehmann’s good camera work. Producer Susanne Hohmeyer-Lichtblau dedicated the award to Sabine Mess, who was portrayed in the programme. Sabine has suffered from bone cancer since her youth but nevertheless is strong in her faith and enjoys life.
“That shows us that we are on the right track with our clear Christian orientation”, says ERF TV’s editorial chief Stefan Loß.
Last year “Thank God!” presenter Doro Wiebe received an award. This year, the ERF TV department was therefore especially glad that the content of the show was awarded.
“Thank God!” was originally produced for the regional TV broadcaster rheinmaintv in 2004 and is now aired on many other stations such as FAB (Fernsehen aus Berlin), bwfamily.tv and Germany’s 24-7 Christian channel, Bibel-TV.
