BAFTA Success For Harry Hill

Comedian Harry Hill scooped two awards at last night's Bafta Television Awards.
Hill won the awards for Best Entertainment Performance and Best Entertainment Programme for his ITV show 'Harry Hill's TV Burp'.
BBC Three comedy 'Gavin & Stacey' also won two awards. The show scooped the Sky+ Audience Award for the Programme of the Year - the only award which was voted for by the public - while James Corden, co-writer and star of the show, won Best Comedy Performance.
Elsewhere, there was some disappointment for BBC1's period drama 'Cranford', which was nominated for four Baftas, including Best Drama Serial, but only won one award, with Dame Eileen Atkins beating co-star Dame Judi Dench to win the award for Best Actress.
Andrew Garfield was named Best Actor for his portrayal of a child killer released from prison in the Channel 4 drama 'Boy A'.
Two other Channel 4 dramas, 'The Mark Of Cain' and 'Britz', were named Best Single Drama and Best Drama Serial, respectively, while medical drama 'Holby City' beat 'The Bill', 'Eastenders' and 'Emmerdale' to be named Best Continuing Drama. Jimmy McGovern's 'The Street' was named Best Drama Series.
'Fonejacker' was named Best Comedy Programme, while 'Peep Show' was named Best Situation Comedy, beating 'Benidorm', 'The IT Crowd' and 'The Thick Of It'.
'Heroes' was named Best International Show, beating 'Californication', 'Family Guy' and 'My Name Is Earl', 'Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares' won Best Features series.
'The Tower: A Tale Of Two Cities' won Best Factual Series, while 'Andrew Marr's History of Modern Britain' won Best Specialist Factual series and 'Lie Of The Land' won Best Single Documentary.
Sky News won the award for Best News Coverage, for their coverage of last year's attempted terror attack on Glasgow airport.
