MUMBAI: In a first of sorts, NDTV 24x7’s The Buck Stops Here - Srinagar Floods Coverage has been named as one of the eight international nominees for the 2015 News & Current Affairs categories at the 2015 International Emmy Awards. 

The show has been nominated for its week long ground reportage and broadcasts on the floods in Jammu and Kashmir. This is the first time that a channel from India has been nominated in the news category at the Emmy Awards.

Reported and presented by Barkha Dutt, who has covered Jammu and Kashmir for nearly two decades, this special series of The Buck Stops Here saw the show travel to Srinagar and bring ground reports and interviews from the scenes of the unfolding tragedy. The team reported from some of the most inaccessible areas that could only be reached by boat, wading through water and jumping over walls and debris to bring the stories of horror and heroism in the worst floods to hit Jammu and Kashmir. 

It also showcased the sterling courage of local Kashmiri volunteers and highlighted the role of the Military in the relief and rescue operations in a state, which has witnessed a two decade old insurgency in the Kashmir valley. 

The eight nominees from seven countries and spanning four continents, Brazil, Canada, Germany, India, Malaysia, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, will be presented medals at a ceremony on 27 September and winners will be announced in New York on 28 September, at a ceremony to be held at the Lincoln Center.

The international winners will be recognized alongside their American news and documentary peers.  

NDTV Group founder and executive co-chairperson Prannoy Roy said, “The nomination for news coverage by The Buck Stops Here team and Barkha at the 2015 International Emmy Awards is a matter of great pride for us at NDTV. Barkha is a wonderful journalist and we are honoured with the recognition given to her, her entire team and to NDTV.”

"So very excited and honoured to be nominated for what is the world's most coveted television award. It makes it even more special that this is the first time India has been nominated in this category. Am very proud of my team at NDTV that made this nomination possible working in extremely difficult conditions in flood ravaged Kashmir," added NDTV Group consulting editor Barkha Dutt.
