News Image
Production Design – Drama

Jennifer Kernke, Utopia – Series 2, Kudos for Channel 4

"This series has successfully translated the world of the graphic novel to television. The suspenseful storylines are supported relentlessly by the design which has successfully managed to create a fully realised world in which the characters can breathe. This is what has made it different from anything else on television this year."

Nominees:

• Matthew Button, Our World War, BBC Factual Productions for BBC Three
• Grant Montgomery, Peaky Blinders, Caryn Mandabach/Tiger Aspect for BBC Two

Production Design – Entertainment & Non Drama

Miranda Jones, Joanna Marshall & Gina Fields, Cardinal Burns – Series 2, Left Bank Pictures for Channel 4

"A really great sketch show relies on the viewer having an immediate understanding of a new scenario. On television this is primarily achieved with design. The winner is brave and quirky, presenting each new world with great detail and wit, which gives each sketch a base line of believability and allows the humour to fly."

Nominees:

• Nigel Coan, Ivana Zorn & James Dillon, Luxury Comedy 2 – Tales from Painted Hawaii, Secret Peter for E4
• Patrick Doherty, Strictly Come Dancing – Series 11, BBC Entertainment for BBC One

Photography – Drama

Lol Crawley BSC, Utopia – Series 2, Kudos for Channel 4

"Flawless – every frame feels cohesive, which makes this series instantly recognisable and immersive."

Nominees:

• Neville Kidd, Sherlock – His Last Vow, Hartswood Films/Masterpiece for BBC Cymru Wales & BBC One
• Zac Nicholson & George Steel, The Honourable Woman, Drama Republic and Eight Rooks for BBC Two

Photography – Documentary/Factual & Non Drama Productions

Marcus Robinson, Rebuilding the World Trade Center, Lion Television in association with Marcus Robinson for Channel 4

"The vision involved in bringing a project of this scale to screen is extraordinary. The visuals breathed life into the process of the buildings construction and the same care and attention is apparent in the beautifully lit and composed interviews with the construction workers. Captivating," said the Jury.

Nominees:

• Jamie Cairney, Cardinal Burns – Series 2, Left Bank Pictures for Channel 4
• Seamas McCracken, The Disappeared, Erica Starling for BBC One

Sound – Drama

Stuart Hilliker, Jim Goddard, Jeff Richardson & Billy Quinn, The Smoke, Kudos for Sky1

"'Backdraft' on a TV budget, commented the jury who were impressed with the great skill with which the team worked in an obviously challenging environment. They managed to deliver sound which felt hyper-real whilst still retaining an absolute clarity in the dialogue."

Nominees:

• Nigel Edwards, Linda Murdoch, Lee Crichlow & Glen Marullo, The Honourable Woman, Drama Republic and Eight Rooks for BBC Two
• Sound Team, Our World War, BBC Factual Productions for BBC Three

Sound – Entertainment & Non Drama

Andy Payne, D-Day 70: The Heroes Return – Bayeux Cemetery, BBC Entertainment & Events for BBC One

"A live OB on a major scale, with speech and music both essential ingredients, and yet with minimal rehearsal, clearly offers the sound team a colossal challenge. The jury were all astounded by the quality of the transmission which was clearly the result of great team work and professionalism."

Nominees:

• Nick Fry, Ben Anthony, Rupert Houseman & Scott Szabo, Life And Death Row, BBC Vision – London Factual for BBC Three
• Sam Staples & Mike Williams, Operation Grand Canyon, BBC History Productions/BBC Worldwide/Discovery Channel for BBC Two

Editing – Drama

Andrew McClelland, Line Of Duty – Series 2, World Productions for BBC Two

"The extraordinary length of this single sequence is all about the editing. It is beautifully controlled as the power shifts between the characters. The sequence is simple but the tension and jeopardy is maintained throughout."

Nominees:

• Iain Erskine, Tommy Cooper: Not Like That, Like This, Left Bank Pictures for ITV
• Jamie Pearson, Happy Valley, Red Production Company for BBC One

Editing – Documentary & Factual

Philip Kloss, Stop At Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story, An ABC Production in association with Passion Pictures for BBC Four

"Compelling story-telling which masterfully communicated the nuances of doping whilst being rooted in the race footage."

Nominees:

• Joanna Crickmay, Arena: The National Theatre – Part 2: War and Peace, Lone Star Productions for BBC Four
• Gwyn Jones, 15,000 Kids and Counting – Episode 1: The Decision, True Vision North for Channel 4

Editing – Entertainment & Situation Comedy

Mark Davies & Mark Henson, Rev. – Series 3, Big Talk Productions for BBC Two

"Beautifully judged editing which takes the viewer from very funny to very poignant stories in a totally engaging way."

Nominees:

• Mark Williams, Some Girls – Series 2, Hat Trick Productions for BBC Three
• Michael Wolf & Mob Dar, Off Their Rockers, CPL Productions for ITV
Editing – Sport

Tom Gent & Steve Williams, BBC Match of the Day – World Cup 2014 Closing Montage, BBC Sport for BBC One

"Colour, energy and a great story which created a hypnotic masterpiece. An outstanding piece of television said the Jury."

Nominees:

• Adam Maynard, Alex Dinnin & Trevor Aylward, England vs Montenegro World Cup Qualifier, ITV Sport for ITV
• Tom Gent & Steve Williams, AP McCoy Sequence for Sports Personality of the Year, BBC Sport for BBC One
