BAFTA TV Awards Winners: Complete List

8 May 2016 1:57 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

London — In another strong year for British television, historical drama “Wolf Hall,” Shane Meadows’ “This Is England ‘90” and “Peter Kay’s Car Share” came up trumps at the BAFTA Television Awards, which unspooled on May 8 in London’s Royal Festival Hall.

The ceremony, which was hosted by Graham Norton, saw BBC2’s “Wolf Hall” win best drama series as well as leading actor for Mark Rylance’s depiction of Thomas Cromwell’s rise to power through Henry VIII’s royal court.

Upon receiving the award for best drama series, helmer Peter Kosminsky attacked the U.K. government’s treatment of the BBC, warning that its future was “under threat, make no mistake about that.”

On May 12, Blighty’s government is due to publish its white paper on the future of the Beeb, with the scope and funding of the corporation under threat. Kosminsky noted that government proposals that threatened the »

No Such Thing As The News is BBC Two’s new topical news show from Qi’s famous fact finders...

Here’s an interesting one. Qi’s team of researchers – often referred to as the ‘Qi Elves’ by Mr Stephen Fry – are spinning out into their own TV show. 

BBC Two has picked up No Such Thing As The News for five episodes. Qi brainboxes James Harkin, Andrew Hunter Murray, Anna Ptaszynski and Dan Schreiber will appear on-screen and recount funny stories from the week’s news. 

The show has been described as “fast, intelligent, hilarious television, completely unlike any other show on air” which “aims to do for the news what Qi does for the universe at large.”

This is what producer John Lloyd had to say about the new comedy series...

“The last time I started a topical TV comedy show with four exceptionally talented »

Katherine Ryan: ‘I want to get pregnant again – just so I can breastfeed on Mock the Week’

10 April 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This single mother, standup comedian and panel show favourite has barely a minute to spare… but still found time to tell us about waitressing at Hooters, fighting sexism, dealing with death threats and her invincible self-belief

It’s a testament to her frantic schedule that comedian Katherine Ryan speaks to me on the phone as she’s grabbing a short holiday with her six-year-old daughter, Violet. I feel bad, crashing her break, but she seems used to it. As well as continuing to tour her show, Kathbum, Ryan features regularly on television panel shows such as Qi, Have I Got News for You, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats and the comedy roast show, Safeword, where she’s team leader. She’s also an actor (Episodes), presenter (Hair) and columnist (writing on popular culture for NME).

It’s a list that could make you feel tired just reading it. Her »
