In addition, Liz Tucker won Broadcast Journalist of the Year at the Medical Journalists' Awards for the film. The judges' citation read:
Broadcasting requires you not only to find a great story, but a great way to tell it. Liz Tucker's intimate portrait of Steve Isaac's motor neurone disease and the effect on his family was delicately covered and compelling.

And the film was Highly Commended at the Association of International Broadcasting Awards

The international jury said our film was: A thoroughly poignant and personal insight that drew the viewer into the drama of a family dealing with the slow decline of the father through motor neurone disease. It felt extraordinarily personal and intimate.
