"Nice to see you...": The Television BAFTAs

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts held their annual awards for the best British television last night and the big winners were Harry Hill's TV Burp, a show that's been going for seven years and is now beating the "big" Saturday night reality shows such as I'll Do Anything in the ratings, and BBC Three sit-com Gavin and Stacey. The later won the only award voted for by the viewers, so it's done very well for a multi-channel show. Bruce Forsyth won the top prize of the BAFTA Fellowship in the year he turned 80, most of which he has spent on TV, with a recent resurgence due to Strictly Come Dancing.

Forsyth is great. He is 80 and still has the sparkle of an 18 year old.
