More success for BBC Wales's Drama department came with 'Torchwood' winning in the Best Costume category and 'Young Dracula' being named the Best Children's programme.
The accolade for Best Current Affairs went to 'Week In Week Out' for its special on transplant tourism; Best Factual went to 'Coast'; Best Camera: Not Drama was awarded to Tribe; Best Lighting Director: Not Camera went to BBC Cardiff went to BBC Cardiff Singer Of The World 2007; Best On-Screen Presenter was given to Bruce Parry for 'Tribe'.
The Best Live Coverage/OBTeam and Best Documentary accolades were awarded to the BBC Wales-produced S4C programmes Angladd Ray Gravell and Grav Ray o'r Mynydd respectively.
The Gwyn Alf Williams Award - in recognition of productions which have contributed most to the understanding and appreciation of the history of Wales - was given to the Indus Films-produced programme Coal House.
Menna Richards, Controller of BBC Wales, said: "Congratulations to all our winners. It's wonderful to see the talent, creativity and hard work of so many people being recognised in this way.
"BBC Wales is very proud that so many of its in-house and independent productions have won awards this year. Their commitment shown in producing such first class output is much appreciated by our audiences."
