T I M E F O R F A M I LY The House of Taittinger is headed up by Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, along with his daughter Vitalie, and son Clovis. Taittinger is the only Grande Marque (famous Champagne House) owned and run by its eponymous family.

T I M E F O R N AT U R E With 288 hectares of their own vineyards, Taittinger is the second largest grower in the region and is passionate about nature and taking care of the environment. Being ‘Green’ is in their everyday DNA, working with Mother Nature to produce the best Chardonnay (for floral elegance), Pinot Noir (for regal richness) and Pinot Meunier (for fruity roundness). Pick too early, and the wines would be lean; pick too late, and they would lack structure and durability.

T I M E F O R AG E I N G Some 18 metres underground the UNESCO 4th century Roman cellars form Taittinger’s heart. Here, their crème de la crème cuvée – Comtes de Champagne ‘Blanc de Blancs’ (100% Chardonnay) – is left to gently mature and is only released after a minimum of 8 years.

TIME FOR ELEGANCE The blending of Taittinger Brut Réserve’s three grape varieties, from a range of vintages, is an art. The elegant balance of the Chardonnay rich Taittinger style is vital.

WELCOM E before writing and presenting Taboo for the BBC. She can now be seen presenting Portrait Artist of the Year for Sky Arts. A Special Award will be presented to producer Nicola Shindler, who founded the awardwinning Red Production Company more than 20 years ago and has been responsible for producing some of the most talked about and groundbreaking British television drama ever, including Queer as Folk, Clocking Off, Hillsborough, The Mark of Cain, Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley and Butterfly. Her most recent work includes Trust Me, and the hotly anticipated drama Years and Years. Congratulations to both Joan and Nicola, your significant contributions and achievements deserve our highest accolades. It is wonderful to see our Breakthrough Brits among the nominees again this evening and at the recent Television Craft Awards, namely Daisy May Cooper, Charlie Cooper, Mahalia Belo and Lydia Hampson, who have all gone on to flourish in their respective careers. Breakthrough Brits is just one of the vital initiatives programmed by BAFTA so crucial in supporting the creative talent who will drive this industry’s future. Alongside Breakthrough Brits, BAFTA Crew and our Scholarships programmes are now open for applications, so please encourage all budding talent to take inspiration from the nominees in this room and apply. Tonight is about excellence in television and recognising the exceptional talent responsible. Congratulations again to you all. Enjoy the evening.

elcome to the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards. We are delighted to be recognising and rewarding the very best achievements across British television in 2018. What a powerful year for television it has been, with an exciting list of nominated individuals and programmes being celebrated here this evening. Their work has had great impact, engaging and affecting how audiences think, feel and act. We extend our congratulations to all the nominees, as well as the winners of the British Academy Television Craft Awards, held just two weeks ago. In a time of political and environmental unrest, television is an important tool to provoke change. It is clear that television can have a real impact on such issues as climate change and through telling powerful human stories that connect audiences with the world around them. You are the creative force behind these influential works and we implore you to continue telling stories that challenge the way audiences think. This evening, we also honour two inspirational women for their outstanding contributions to the television industry. The hugely talented broadcaster and journalist Joan Bakewell will receive the Fellowship. Her illustrious career has spanned more than 50 years, in which she has presented some of the most enduring and thoughtful factual programming including Late Night Line-Up and Heart of the Matter,

WELCOM E

FROM

OUR

SPONSOR

irgin Media is delighted to welcome you once again to the British Academy Television Awards – a night of celebrations dedicated to the very best television of 2018. With more choice and more ways to watch than ever before, television has never been better and, as a nation, we’re incredibly passionate about this golden age. There has been a huge shift in how we watch and engage with our favourite programmes, but we still love nothing more than planning big nights on the sofa with family and friends, watching the moments that got us all talking and sharing. At Virgin Media, we call it ‘staying in-in’. We’re proud of the part we play in helping the British public celebrate the best television of 2018, as we put the voting power in their hands for Virgin Media’s Must-See Moment award. This evening’s nominees created the television moments we didn’t just stay in to watch, but ones that we’ll remember for years to come. On behalf of BAFTA and Virgin Media, we’d like to say a special thank you to our judging panel, expertly chaired by Krishnendu Majumdar, of BAFTA’s Television Committee. The panel enthusiastically debated all the explosive cliffhangers, laugh-out-loud moments and edge-of-your-seat action to agree on a shortlist that demonstrates what diverse, unforgettable television truly means. Tonight, we invite you to join us in recognising those who craft incredible stories, bring mesmerising characters to life and show a global audience what the UK industry is all about. They represent the pinnacle of British entertainment; all the nominees can be very proud. I hope you enjoy ‘going out-out’ at the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards.

moved to London and became a studio manager with BBC Radio. “I was terrible – I couldn’t do technical stuff and I still can’t,” she recalls. She tried advertising, but couldn’t stomach the ethics of the business: “Copywriting involves selling people stuff they don’t need that they can’t afford.” Next came supply teaching at a primary school: “I was hopeless.” Persistence, though, is a Bakewell trait. “I don’t take no for an answer, which is an enormous virtue in television,” she says, recounting how she “bombarded” producers with ideas for stories. Eventually, she began to get short items on BBC Radio, including one “about a south London man who had a pigeon coop in his garden to which his neighbours objected”. Naturally, as a woman who has always backed the underdog, Bakewell “sided with the man with the pigeons”. She made her television debut in the early 1960s on Sunday Break, a series billed as “a Sunday club for teenagers”. Its role was to fill ITV’s quota of religious programming, with subjects often

ver a career spanning six decades, Joan Bakewell has offered viewers an erudite and distinctive voice, whether she is discussing the arts, current affairs or the big ethical issues of the day. Still working at the age of 86, the broadcaster, presenter and journalist has long been an inspiration to women in and outside television. “Being awarded the Fellowship is extraordinary because it’s an acknowledgment by the people in the business that I’ve adored all my life,” says Bakewell, who already has a BAFTA – the Richard Dimbleby Award for her work on BBC One ethics show Heart of the Matter – proudly displayed in her office. “The idea of joining a fellowship is really something. On the night, I will be in the company of such illustrious talent.” The Stockport-born Bakewell suffered a few false starts after graduating from Newnham College, Cambridge, in 1954. Looking for a way into the BBC, she

ÒWE WERE MAKING IT UP AS WE WENT ALONG Ð THERE WERE NO RULES IN THE 60S.Ó hurriedly given a religious angle. “On one show, I was doing this item about how unhappy drugs made people when someone rushed over with a card that said, ‘Mention God!’” she recalls. Sunday Break got Bakewell noticed and she joined the roster of presenters on BBC Two’s live arts show, Late Night Line-Up. “Television at the time was open for young people – I hit the right moment,” she recalls. “We were making it up as we went along – there were no rules in the 60s.” Bakewell became one of the defining television figures of the decade; “intelligent and the epitome of 60s chic – a  Mary Quant  for the chattering classes”, according to the British Film Institute. Late Night Line-Up had its fingers on the cultural pulse, with items on everything from Hollywood movies to avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, via counter-culture writer Allen Ginsberg. “It was quite lively – and drink had often been taken, too,” laughs Bakewell. The show was known for its trenchant criticism of artists. “We were pushing the barriers all the time – pushing our luck actually. We always said, ‘If we’re

offending people, we’re doing something right,’” notes Bakewell. It also had a sense of fun: moral campaigner Mary Whitehouse was dispatched to review the nude revue show Oh! Calcutta!. Years before ‘fake news’, one Late Night Line-Up prank showed how news could be fabricated. Bakewell takes up the story: “We paid an actress, dressed her in frumpy clothes and gave her an umbrella. [Director] Ken Russell and the Evening Standard’s [critic] Alexander Walker were discussing a film when she broke into the studio and started beating them up with her umbrella. It was front page news the next day – and then we revealed we'd fixed it. Of course, we got into terrible trouble.”

David Attenborough, BBC Two’s controller at the time, had the Late Night Line-Up team’s back. “We were constantly taking flak from inside the BBC. David protected us; he called us his ‘guerrillas’,” she recalls. The 1970s saw Bakewell appear in an eclectic series of shows. She was on the presenters’ rota for Film ’72 and ’73 before the BBC settled on Barry Norman to front its movie review show permanently. “I loved cinema, even The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. I was a bit inclined to like everything,” says Bakewell, who also hosted BBC One’s longrunning Holiday programme. Granada’s 1977 series Pandora’s Box was quintessential Bakewell, featuring all-women panels discussing the big issues of the day – with a young Victoria Wood writing and performing songs for light relief. “What you get now is Loose Women, which is cheeky and rude. Mine was terribly solemn and serious,” says Bakewell, who is always ready to poke fun at her earnest image. In the 1980s, she was the BBC’s arts correspondent before joining Heart of the Matter in 1987, which covered “female genital mutilation, transgender people and gay priests – real headline stuff”. It also gave Bakewell her most remarkable interviewee, Nelson Mandela, shortly after his release from prison. “He was so impressive and  I was a bit star-struck –

it was the only time I’ve asked someone to sign a book, because that’s a bit cheesy.” Bakewell has always been a fierce opponent of censorship – decades earlier, she had smuggled the banned Henry Miller novel Tropic of Cancer into England, tucked in her underwear. Who better to write and present the BBC Two series Taboo in 2001? “In those days, basically, I believed sex was good and violence was bad,” she recalls. “You never saw – and still don’t see – an erect penis on television.” So, the show featured a nude model with an erect (albeit pixelated) male member, which Bakewell circled while discussing censorship.

Bakewell, who became Labour peer Baroness Bakewell of Stockport in 2011, continues to work in the media. Later this year, she will front Sky Arts’ series Landscape Artist of the Year. “I still adore the arts,” she says. “While I’m still on my feet, life’s too good to miss out on.” She also makes BBC Radio 4 shows; most recently, We Need to Talk About Death.

ÒI FEEL IÔVE LIVED THROUGH THE GREATEST SOCIAL CHANGE OF THE CENTURY, WHICH IS THE LIBERATION OF WOMEN.Ó When Bakewell first appeared on television, she was notable for being one of the few women allowed to make serious programmes. Thankfully, things have changed a lot since those days. “I’ve seen a huge change – I feel I’ve lived through the greatest social change of the century, which is the liberation of women,” says Bakewell. “I rejoice to see how many women are thriving in television now.” •

fter more than 20 years at the top of the UK television pyramid, Nicola Shindler can’t help being a pragmatist. While talking about her dream to continue making the drama she loves, she quickly interjects, “But while being realistic and knowing it’s a business and that we have to give people what they want. You can’t forget that. You have to be aware of what’s going to get on television.” Shindler’s brand of practicality, however, stems from a genuine passion for the art form, storytelling and, most of all, writers. “Writing is the hardest job,” she says with clear affection. “Because they can do it in their pyjamas, people sometimes think it’s easy. It so isn’t – writing a really good script is astonishingly difficult. So much so that I don’t like to waste writers’ time. I’ll say, ‘I don’t think I’ll ever get that made’, which is a horrible thing to have to say but it’s better than them writing something that never gets made. Everything I do comes from the writer’s voice. You have to understand what the writer’s trying to say, what they want us to do, how it should feel… It’s the best and hardest part of the job.” Before setting up Red Production Company – named for her beloved Manchester United – from her living room in 1998, aged 29, the fire of Shindler’s professional philosophy was sparked by her first job in television. “It was on the first series of Cracker,” she says. “Getting to listen to Jimmy McGovern – an incredible writer – was just so lucky. He taught me that you shouldn’t have any fear; that you should go for every

single idea you’ve got. And you don’t need to make characters ‘likeable’, they can be much more interesting. I learned a huge amount from him.” Crucially, that included a devotion to believability. “You have to believe in the characters,” she asserts. “If you do, you can defend or change anything else. We get a lot of really good notes from broadcasters and you have to listen but you also have to keep the truth of what you’re doing. You can do that if what you have is very honest.” She pauses. “And hugely entertaining.” Truth, honesty, passion, pragmatism and entertainment – a compelling roadmap for creative success. And Shindler has the CV to back it up: Queer as Folk, Clocking Off, Scott & Bailey, Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley – altogether earning her six BAFTA wins over the years. And now she’s working on a Netflix show with prolific thriller writer Harlan Coben.

Left: Queer as Folk “Anytime something made a difference has been brilliant,” Shindler says of her prolific career. “Starting with Queer as Folk, which was amazing. Then launching BBC Three with Burn It; I’m very proud of that series. Right now, I love working with Harlan at Netflix – it’s a really different, exciting approach. If you look back at our work, it’s always had elements of serialised storytelling, even when making traditional ‘stories of the week’. That’s what I’ve always been drawn to and, ironically, that’s what television has turned into now.” After an early decision to swap theatre for television, Cambridge-graduate Shindler landed a stint as a trainee at the BBC before moving back up north to work for Granada. Her northern credentials – she was raised in Rochdale and Bury – are often directly associated with her work, but,

interestingly are not her driving force. “I don’t care where a series is set,” she states. “It could be set on the moon. I work with a lot of writers from here, we film a lot here, we’re based here and I do think it’s really important to have voices on television that aren’t from the south, but I would never choose a story because of that. Truthful characters can come from anywhere and they are what allow you to do something as extreme as Queer as Folk.” So, truthfully, for someone who admits to not being a big fan of the spotlight, how does it feel being honoured by BAFTA? “I’m scared of the speech, obviously,” she admits. “I’d like to thank everyone I’ve ever worked with… but I’ll have to work that out on the night. I am thrilled. My mother’s delighted – that’s very important. Hopefully it shows that if you work really hard, and have quite a lot of luck, then you’ll be recognised.”

Shindler likes the idea of a producer winning the Special Award acting as an inspiration, even if she flinches at the reality of it being her. However, when asked what advice she’d give to aspiring producers, her natural enthusiasm quickly returns. “Even though it’s very difficult for indies at the moment, if you have an idea that feels different and cutting edge there is a way forward,” she says. “There’s so much around now that you have to make things that punch through. Shows that aren’t easily summed up are hard to sell. Even something like Last Tango In Halifax – it’s hard to put your finger on what it is, other than a family saga, which made it tough to get it commissioned. It would be even harder now. There isn’t much room for beautiful small work, unless you frame it in something else. Like Butterfly, which we did last year for ITV: essentially a small family story, but because it had the hot topic of a transitioning child, it felt bigger.” Shindler’s true gift is balancing those two key components, practicality and creativity. She is adamant that a producer must keep

current, and understand why that’s important, but then, on a fundamental level, they must preserve the heart of what they’re trying to make rather than fit to a fashion. “The broadcaster’s paying for it so you have to give them what they want,” she says. “But a massive part of my job is about listening to what people really want. Sometimes it’s hard to articulate because there’s no right and wrong.” As the conversation wraps up, a last, quick question pops up – what does she really want to make, ignoring all the industry pressures and changes? “I should say a massive, huge £5m-anepisode global show,” she smiles. “But, no – I’d just love to do a returning series where you set up characters that people want to come back again and again. And not just for business reasons. It’s brilliant to be on the fourth, fifth, sixth series with characters that work. I really like that.” After a pause, she adds: “But that’s not what the industry wants right now…” A pragmatist to the end. •

THE SPECIAL AWARD EMMA THOMAS

The role of script supervisor is an integral part of any television or film production, but it’s also a craft that is seldom recognised with awards. Emma Thomas is widely regarded as one of the best in her field and has made an incredible impact on British television and film across her 30-plus years in the business. It was after attending the filming of Terence Frisby’s 1976 sitcom Lucky Feller that she fell in love with the television industry. “I just knew I had to find a way to get into all this using what skills I had,” says Thomas. She soon applied for training at Central TV in Nottingham on its Script Supervisor course, specialising in drama production. One of her first jobs was on Jim Henson’s The Muppet Show, where she would meet Hollywood stars including James Coburn and Gene Kelly. “I thought I’d died and gone to heaven… although I was essentially working for a bunch of puppets!” Since then, she has worked on everything from Goodnight Sweetheart, Birds of a Feather and Man Down to The Bill, Luther, Soon Gone: A Windrush Chronicle and Four Weddings. Thomas also actively mentors other women in the industry. “It’s wonderful to be on set now and see female camera operators and lighting technicians – there’s no department that doesn’t have a female presence,” she says. “I’m so proud to receive this award. This is going to be amazing for all the script supervisors out there.” •

MOVING IM AGES T H E P OWER O F T EL E VISI O N Words by Rachel Ward Photos courtesy of Trinity Mirror/Mirrorpix/Alamy Stock Photo (1966 World Cup, 1969 Moon landing and 1985 Live Aid); Allstar Picture Library/Alamy Stock Photo (Only Fools and Horses); BAFTA/Charlie Clift (Sir David Attenborough); BAFTA/Hannah Taylor (This Morning Tribute); BAFTA/Shutterstock/James Gourley(Strictly Come Dancing); BAFTA (The Great British Bake Off)

Television is an art form that works on so many levels. It can stimulate us emotionally and intellectually, it can bring us together in celebration and in times of heartache. It can take us to wondrous places, both real and fictional. It can entertain and it can soothe. It can break down barriers and establish long-lasting friendships. Powerful stuff!

anuary this year marked the 90th anniversary of John Logie Baird’s first television transmission. Since then, cameras have captured wars, revolutions, Olympic triumphs, Royal weddings, World Cups, wardrobe malfunctions, Big Brother made real, a mother of dragons, a blue planet, the surface of the moon and a woman kissing a “hot priest”. More than 56 per cent of Britons tuned in for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 (at a time when there were only 2.7 million television sets in the country); 32.3 million witnessed the boys in red trounce Germany in the 1966 World Cup; 21.6 million wanted to know who shot JR in 1980; 10.4 million watched the Bodyguard finale last year; and who could forget the achievements of the crew of Apollo 11, which were beamed to a spellbound 500 million viewers worldwide? We believe in television as a medium that does good, as a medium that triggers imagination, rouses curiosity, encourages education and gathers millions around common interests – its granular element is that it binds us, shaping the very fabric of our lives.

The moon landing marked the first all-night television broadcast in Britain on 20 July 1969. Families huddled in front of black-and-white sets, munching on sandwiches. Huge crowds came together to watch it in public places. Perhaps if the moon really was made of cheese, the astronauts would take a bite, too. Radio 4 Today presenter John Humphrys’ daughter was due to be born on the same day. He faced a difficult choice: hospital, to watch the miracle of birth, or home, watching a monumental moment in human history. The box won. “I think she understands…,” he says. Watching live footage was still relatively novel in 1969. It proved to be a powerful moment that was to inspire many future scientists and engineers. That shared experience still exerts a hold over our collective imagination. Bob Geldof ’s 1985 Live Aid concert was billed as a “global jukebox” and, with its ambitious satellite link-up, reached 1.9 billion viewers in 150 countries and raised £150m for poverty relief in Africa. Is there a more powerful instigator for change? A number of television firsts have also helped to break down social barriers. A 1968 episode of Star Trek is often referred to as the first interracial kiss ever broadcast, while ITV’s The Naked Civil Servant (1975), an interpretation of Quentin Crisp’s memoir, was in many ways the first celebration of homosexuality on British television.

DAVID ATTENBOROUGH HAS TAKEN US TO REMARKABLE PLACES AND IMMERSED US IN SOME OF THE LEAST-KNOWN PARTS OF OUR PLANET.


T Davies’s Queer as Folk (1999-2000) went on to break the mould and is regarded as a milestone in LGBTQ+ representation. Transparent (20142017), Billions (2016-) and The Bisexual (2018) have followed suit. Society has shifted and suddenly the black box in the corner of the room provides a lifeline for those perhaps previously misunderstood. Naturally, television is a phenomenally powerful communication tool, providing vital information at any moment. The broadcast of the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege interrupted the BBC’s live coverage of the World Snooker Championship – like millions back home, the SAS teams were watching Alex Higgins take on Cliff Thorburn when they received the call to action. Continuous coverage of the crumbling of the Twin Towers on 11 September 2001 would ensure that a worldwide audience watched on in horror for hours, days, weeks, stunned into disbelief and heartache at the most shocking images ever broadcast.

Perhaps the power of the medium to both educate and entertain has seldom been as well employed as by Sir David Attenborough. His stunning 1979 hit Life on Earth was groundbreaking in introducing the wonder of the outside world inside everyone’s living rooms. Since then, Attenborough’s aweinspiring footage has taken us to remarkable places and immersed us in some of the least-known parts of our planet. From gorilla hugs to thrilling snake chases, his stories continue to captivate and educate wide and varied audiences. It’s not just homosapiens taking note, either – for an episode of recent series Dynasties, following a pride of lions in Kenya’s Masai Mara, household cats across the nation were so entranced that they climbed onto furniture to

press their faces against the screen. We have, it seems, reached peak mogglebox. Not only has television become a surrogate member of the family, it invariably impacts our daily lives. Just as Coronation Street’s comforting, mournful cornet ushers us to the sofa of an evening, pop-culture catchphrases remind us of the medium’s sway. Just like that, Del Boy Trotter’s “Lovely jubbly!”, Mr Meldrew’s moaning “I don’t belieeeeeeve it!” and Catherine Tate’s “Am I bovvered?” hold a place in everyday vocabulary. The Oxford English Dictionary even deemed Homer Simpson’s “D’oh!” worthy of an entry... which was nice. Away from the screen, the art form is able to work on various levels and create those watercooler moments we all fervently revel in. For six weeks in the autumn of 2018, Jed Mercurio’s gleefully overthe-top, twisty political thriller Bodyguard dominated conversations, becoming the BBC’s biggest ratings hit in a decade. It was a pure adrenalin-driven piece of entertainment, but also highlighted such mental health issues as PTSD through army veteran-cumpolice officer David Budd. More recently, Phoebe Waller-Bridge has trampled down the boundary between comedy and drama, perhaps inventing a whole new genre of her own with her uproariously good Fleabag. Carefully developed storylines can kickstart vital conversations. This was no truer than with last year’s off-screen suicide of Corrie’s everyman Aidan Connor. It explored the character’s secret battle with

NOT ONLY HAS TELEVISION BECOME A SURROGATE MEMBER OF THE FAMILY, IT INVARIABLY IMPACTS OUR DAILY LIVES. depression, opening up the discussion for not only those in a similar situation – male suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK – but putting the spotlight on the ramifications for those around them. Helen Worth’s closing monologue about looking out for our neighbours couldn’t have been more poignant. As a result, online charity Paphrus received three times as many calls as a routine day, while CALM and Samaritans took on extra staff to cope with demand on their helplines. British daytime show This Morning (1988-), which was celebrated at a special BAFTA Tribute event last year, has also proven to be a game-changer over the past 30 years. Think of a topic of discussion and it has probably been covered: the broadcast of the first gay partnership celebration on Valentine’s Day 2001 and the first breast, testicular and prostate examinations by Dr Chris Steele MBE are just a few of the pioneering moments broadcast live on British television. One particularly moving segment came when a woman phoned in to confide that she was trapped in an abusive relationship, quite literally as her husband had locked her in their house. In an

On a lighter note, The Great British Bake Off (2010-) has brought a sport to the leisurely hobby of baking, not to mention made an art of innuendo. Thanks in part to the show, the British public has rediscovered a pastime that’s enjoyable, practical, accessible and acceptable for all. Elsewhere, arguably no other show has united generations or become a year-round phenomenon as Strictly Come Dancing (2004-).

THE PO W E R O F A PI C T U R E A P H O TO G R A P H I C E S S A Y BY CHA RLI E CLI FT o successfully shoot dynamic reportage photography at an Awards ceremony as huge as the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards is no mean feat. For the past two years, photographer Charlie Clift has been tasked with just that: running up and down staircases, getting soaked through by inclement weather, guessing which area of the venue to hit for the best candid shots and then finding the right light. Essentially, always trying to be in the right place at the right time. But, as this essay proves, Clift, whose other clients include the BBC, The Sunday Times Magazine, GQ, Wired, the Premier League and many others, is a master of his art. The following images offer a mix of memorable backstage moments from the 2017 and 2018 Awards, capturing many of the guests in playful mood. As he writes in his blog about the original commission, “I couldn’t really say no, could I? I mean, who turns down a free pass to the biggest night of the TV year? Bring it on!”
