Derby Movie Makers lucked out in this year's North vs South final, managing only 5th place overall.
It was, by anyone's reckoning, a harsh result.
Despite winning the Southern Heat last November and winning the Tony Rose competition, it failed to impress the judges on this occasion. Congratulations go to Chesterfield Movie Makers for their winning entry 'Cabbages and Condoms', an interesting documentary about Thai family planning policy.
Derby Movie Makers can take some consolation from the fact that, once again, their entry was a favorite with the audience.
The theme for next year's North vs South competition is 'Trapped'. Let's hope Derby Movie Makers can do better then.
