They were shortlisted the following year when their Granada TV World in Action programme first revealed Scotland Yard's Cocaine Connection. Paul Lashmar, formerly with the Observer, was Reporter of the Year in 1986. He has been investigating Scotland Yard since the early 1980s. He is now a memeber of the World in Action team.
