John to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) will be honouring John Cleese with the Rose d’Or Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 55th annual ceremony to be held in Berlin on September 13.

John said of the honour: “I am delighted by this chance to annoy Terry Gilliam and I’m also very humbled by the offer of an all-expenses-paid holiday in Berlin.”

The award recognises those who have made an outstanding contribution to television or radio entertainment throughout their careers. The Rose d’Or Awards, first presented in 1961, are given to the best radio, television and online entertainment programmes from the previous year.
