The BAFTA TV Craft Awards is observed every year to recognize the talent of people working behind the scenes to create outstanding television programs in the UK. The winners were honored in multiple categories with some double wins also noted.
One double win was garnered by the coverage by BBC of the London Olympics. Channel 4 also won for its Paralympics coverage.
BBC was another double winner due to its Shakespearean drama series Hollow Crown. Also joining the ranks of double winners was Call the Midwife, a drama from BBC1, which was also notable because Philipa Lowthorpe became the first woman to be awarded as Best Director for Fiction in the entire history of BAFTA TV Craft awards. (Best Director for Factual was given to Ben Chanan for “The Plot to Bring Down Britain’s Planes”, on the other hand.)
For the Breakthrough Talent category, Tim Whitnall was recognized as writer for “Best Possible Taste: The Kenny Everett Story”. Best in Costume Design award was given to Sheena Napier for “Parade’s End”.
A special award was also granted to Hamish Hamilton who won with Tapani Parm the Best Director for Multi Camera for “The London Olympic Opening Ceremony: Isle of Wonder.”
