BBC One series Trawlermen and Wallander picked up the Sound trophies at the recent BAFTA Television Craft Awards. The prelude to last week’s BAFTA TV Awards, the Television Craft event took place at the London Hilton on Sunday 23 May.
In the Sound Factual category, George Foulgham and Lisa Marie McStay (pictured) collected the trophy for their work on the BBC’s Trawlermen. Other nominated productions in this field included Nature’s Great Events (BBC), Life – Insects (BBC/Discovery, SKAI, OU, RTI Spa) and 9/11: Phone Calls From the Towers (Channel 4/Darlow Smithson).
Sound Fiction brought glory for the team behind BBC co-production Wallander, namely Paul Hamblin, André Schmidt, Catherine Hodgson and Bosse Persson. Red Riding 1974 (Channel 4/Revolution Films), Cranford (BBC/WGBH Boston/Chestermead) and Spooks (BBC/Kudos Film & Television) were the other productions nominated for this award.
Meanwhile, the Original Television Music saw recognition for Martin Phipps’s work on BBC/Ruby Films & Television/AL Films production Small Island. Adrian Johnston (Red Riding 1974), Craig Pruess (Moses Jones) and Richard Wells (Being Human) were also nominated in this field.
Julia Bradbury, Rebecca Front, James May and Stephen Mangan were among the category presenters at this year’s craft event, which was separated from the main TV awards in 2000.
