A M A N DA B ER RY OBE Chief Executive of the Academy

A N N E M O RRISO N Chair of the Academy

very warm welcome to the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards in 2016. A fortnight ago we celebrated the best behind-the-scenes practitioners at the Television Craft Awards. Tonight, we look to the programmes and performances themselves, and judging from the strength of the nominations it has been another premiere year for television. Television is ingrained into the very fabric of our society, with the best programmes and performances reflecting, and indeed, shaping the cultural landscape of this country. The strength of British television is its ability to connect the nation and bind it together, and that’s thanks to the creativity and vision of the many incredibly talented individuals working in the industry. Two such individuals are the joint recipients of this evening’s Fellowship, the highest accolade the Academy bestows. In many ways, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson can be considered the fathers of modern situation comedy, setting the benchmark through such classic series as Hancock’s Half Hour and Steptoe and Son. A fabulously wide range of genres, subjects and perspectives have been covered by tonight’s nominees and we congratulate all of them on their achievements. Just as variety is important

to the continuing success of television, so too is diversity in the industry. This is by no means a new issue, but it was firmly put back on the map by Lenny Henry at his BAFTA Television Lecture in 2014. Henry is the worthy recipient of a BAFTA Special Award this evening. It’s said that talent, such as his, will always shine through, but that’s easy to say in retrospect. He may now be considered one of the UK’s greatest performers, but he has had to break down barriers and challenge stereotypes throughout his career. BAFTA is working hard to ensure diversity remains firmly on the industry agenda. We have been working behind the scenes for many years, nurturing talented people, regardless of their background, to enter, thrive and excel within the industry. Through our year-round learning and new talent programme, including mentoring and scholarships, talent initiatives such as Breakthrough Brits, and festivals such as Guru Live, BAFTA continues to support the television industry and champion our brightest stars. Our thanks to the Television Committee, led by Krishnendu Majumdar and Emma Morgan; the brilliant BAFTA staff; our juries; our host Graham Norton; our title sponsor House of Fraser and all our wonderful partners, who believe in what we do. Enjoy the ceremony.

F E L L O W S H I P

Galton and Simpson learned their craft writing for radio, moving on to shows such as Calling All Forces and Workers Playtime; on the latter they worked for the first time with Tony Hancock. Immediately recognising Hancock’s comic talent and wanting to leave variety shows behind them, Galton and Simpson approached the BBC with an idea for a new type of programme with Hancock as its star. “We [wanted] to do what is now called a sitcom, but in those days the phrase was unheard of,” recalled Galton. Helped by Happy-Go-Lucky producer Dennis Main Wilson, who went on to produce the first four radio series of Hancock’s Half Hour, the BBC gave Galton and Simpson the green light. Hancock’s Half Hour, in which Hancock was supported by the comic geniuses of Kenneth Williams, Sid James, Bill Kerr and Hattie Jacques, ran from 1954 to 1961, initially on the radio and then on television. It made Galton and Simpson’s name. While writing the long-running series, Galton and Simpson formed the writers’ co-operative, Associated London Scripts, with Eric Sykes and Milligan. At the RTS lunch, Galton and Simpson fondly recalled an era when they wrote together above a shop in Shepherd’s Bush.

A C A D E M Y

his year’s BAFTA Fellowship is awarded to one of the country’s premier comedy writing teams, Ray Galton and Alan Simpson. The duo invented the modern television situation comedy genre with Hancock’s Half Hour and then perfected it with Steptoe and Son. “We are extremely delighted to receive the Fellowship,” Galton and Simpson say. “We always wanted a Fellowship even though we did not know what a Fellowship was! It’s not the sort of thing one associates with a couple of Cockney lads… apart from Alfred Hitchcock, of course.” Galton and Simpson met for the first and almost last time 70 years ago in unprepossessing circumstances – a tuberculosis sanatorium in Surrey. Speaking at a Royal Television Society lunch held in their honour a few years ago, Galton recalled the moment in 1948 when he first saw Simpson, a tall, broad man, being wheeled through the ward: “Suddenly, this shadow went across the window and it went dark. I looked up and I saw a body disappearing down the corridor. It was Alan. Spike Milligan later called him, ‘He who blocks out the sun,’” he recalled. While recovering from the illness, which had come close to killing both of them, Galton and Simpson discovered a shared loved of US radio entertainers Don Ameche and Jack Benny, and filled the long days by writing a pastiche of hospital life, Have You Ever Wondered?, for the sanatorium’s hospital radio service. “We were lucky enough to be thrown together in a disastrous episode that resulted in a friendship that has lasted nearly 70 years,” they note. “Who said TB was bad for you?” On their discharge from the sanatorium, the young Londoners were determined to make it in showbusiness. They wrote to and were knocked back by established comedy writers Frank Muir and Denis Norden, before being hired – at five shillings a gag – to pen jokes for comedian Derek Roy on the 1951 radio show, Happy-Go-Lucky.


A C A D E M Y

“We [wanted] to do what is now called a sitcom, but in those days the phrase was unheard of.” “Ray couldn’t type so I had the typewriter and, as we agreed a line, I typed it. Nothing went down until we both agreed it,” said Simpson. “All the writers who wrote solo, like Spike and Eric, would come into the office with a piece of paper and say, ‘Listen to this.’ But because we had a sounding board, never once did we say to someone else, ‘Read this’. I find it amazing people write comedy on their own,” added Galton. The final series of Hancock’s Half Hour, now known simply as Hancock, was a solo vehicle for the lugubrious comic. It included the much-loved episode, ‘The Blood Donor’, which probably contains Galton and Simpson’s most quoted lines. “A pint? Have you gone raving mad?” said Hancock. “I mean, I came here in all good faith, to help my country. I don’t mind giving a reasonable amount, but a pint? Why, that’s very nearly an armful.” Galton and Simpson had become the most in-demand writers on British television. As well as Hancock’s Half Hour, they also penned

a Sid James vehicle, Citizen James (1960-62), and the film, The Rebel (1961), with Hancock playing a talentless artist. “Tony was a delight to work with,” they recall. “His first readings were always perfect in every respect, which is more of a rarity than you would imagine. The only other performer who came anywhere close was Bernard Braden. Tony’s only problem was learning the lines. But he was, without doubt, one of the greatest ‘timers’ in the business.” Hancock’s partnership with Galton and Simpson over almost a decade was the high point of the comedian’s career; after he inexplicably dropped the writers, his work deteriorated rapidly. The duo, however, soon found their feet, penning single-episode comedies for a new BBC show, Comedy Playhouse. For the first series, which ran over the winter of 1961-62, Galton and Simpson wrote 10 scripts. The fourth story, ‘The Offer’, went on to seal their reputation as Britain’s greatest comedy writing partnership. Having written three of the scripts for Comedy Playhouse, the duo ran out of ideas. “When we were in this situation, we used to amuse each other by coming up with outlandish suggestions that would never make a series,” Simpson told the RTS luncheon guests. “Ray even came up with one about two rag and bone men.”

Death Us Do Part creator Johnny Speight, on shows such as ITV sitcom Spooner’s Patch (1979-82). In a fitting postscript to a long and glittering television career, Galton wrote (with John Antrobus) the 1997 BBC sitcom Get Well Soon, which he based on his – and Simpson’s – life in the tuberculosis sanatorium 50 years earlier. Galton and Simpson had come full circle. “We’ve had the good fortune to write for some highly talented performers throughout our career,” they say, listing Hancock, Corbett, Brambell, Jimmy James, Frankie Howerd, Richard Burton, Donald Wolfit, Jack Hawkins, Les Dawson, Peter Sellers, June Whitfield, Hattie Jacques and Paul Merton, among many more. “Our only regret is that we came into the business too late to work with such wonderful performers as Will Hay and Sid Field. Ken would have been a ‘doddle’ as well – the man responsible for one of the funniest lines in the history of showbusiness; namely, as the sergeant-at-arms said to King Harold at the Battle of Hastings: ‘Keep blinking, it’ll work its way out!’”

A C A D E M Y

The “dirty old man”, Albert Steptoe, played by Wilfrid Brambell, and his frustrated son, Harold (Harry H Corbett), who was forever trying to improve his mind and social standing, were born. And the British public loved them. Initially, Galton and Simpson were reluctant to return to the characters. “We knew the show was good and that it could make a series, but we didn’t want to get tied up again for 10 years,” recalled Galton. The BBC badgered them and, when Brambell and Corbett agreed to reprise their roles, Galton and Simpson followed suit. Steptoe and Son ran for eight series and spawned two feature films, before the series ended with the 1974 Christmas special. Steptoe and Son brought sympathetically drawn working class characters to British television comedy for the first time – three years before Till Death Us Do Part introduced loudmouth cockney Alf Garnett to television audiences. It was often sad, sometimes tragic, but always very funny. And hugely popular among audiences as well as critics. At the peak of its popularity, Steptoe and Son was pulling in audiences of 28 million. “The great thing with Steptoe was that, after a career working predominantly with comedians, we found ourselves writing for two giants of legitimate theatre,” they note (Brambell came from the Abbey Theatre in Dublin, and Corbett from the Theatre Workshop in Stratford). “When Harry accepted the part, he was working for the Bristol Old Vic in Richard II. He was a noted Shakespearian actor – we soon knocked that on the head.” The long-running BBC situation comedy was Galton and Simpson’s greatest success but the duo also wrote for Frankie Howerd’s BBC shows and penned his 1971 film, Up the Chastity Belt. They also adapted French comic novel Clochemerle for the BBC in 1972. Simpson retired after ITV’s 1997 series The Galton & Simpson Playhouse, although Galton continued to write, often with Till

newsreader Trevor McDonald (aka Trevor McDoughnut, huge spectacles et al) all given the Henry treatment over the years. “Back in the day I was driven by two things – the ambition instilled in me by my mum and the encouragement and support of my mates, who were very important to me,” says Henry, who was born in Dudley and, although he now predominantly resides in London, still has that friendly West Midlands twang. “They supported my attempts at comedy around the local clubs and discotheques and I felt I owed it to them to succeed. We were all very close, still are in many ways… I was performing as an impressionist at the Queen Mary Ballroom at Dudley Zoo, and a local DJ said, after a while, ‘Hey – you should be on one of them talent programmes.’ He wrote away to New Faces, I auditioned when I was 15 and then I made my television debut in January 1975. I won the programme and was seen by 16 million people. I didn’t stop working for 10 years after that.” More than 40 years on and Henry is widely regarded as one of the UK’s bestknown and most beloved performers. As well as his comedy output, both for television and live stand-up (Henry was the first British comedian to release a stand-up show as a feature-length film, 1989’s Lenny Henry Live

atanga, my friends!” Those of us from a certain generation cannot fail to hear these words and not think of comedian Lenny Henry – it was, after all, one of the hottest catchphrases in schoolyards and playing fields across the UK circa the mid-1980s. For those who are unfamiliar with the phrase, it comes from Henry’s outrageous character Joshua Yarlong, aka Africa’s best-known (and rather rambunctious) television presenter. Yarlong is one of many outlandish and hilarious characters created and performed by Henry across numerous comedy series, ranging from Tiswas, Three of a Kind, The Lenny Henry Show, Lenny Henry in Pieces, Chef! and many more. Rastafarian Razzmatazz, soul lover man Theophilus P Wildebeeste (the man who put ‘moan’ into ‘harmonious’), Jamaican grandpa Deakus, south London pirate radio wideboy Delbert Wilkins and bad-tempered chef Gareth Blackstock are just a few of his other memorable creations. But it was through impersonations that Henry first broke onto the small screen and made his name, winning nationwide talent contest New Faces in 1975 as a freshfaced 16-year-old. He clearly has a gift for impressions, with such beloved characters as Frank Spencer, David Bellamy and

“The biggest, most extraordinary moment perhaps has been the British public’s commitment to Comic Relief.” Among the highs of such a long-running career – which include starring in the first all-black British sitcom, The Fosters; winning the Golden Rose at the Montreux Television Festival for Three of a Kind with “my brilliant” co-stars Tracey Ullman and David Copperfield; being nominated for a BAFTA for The Lenny Henry Show in 1985; and performing at two “bum-shatteringly nerve-racking” Nelson Mandela concerts, held at Wembley – there have naturally been some lows, too. Before Tiswas and Three of a Kind, Henry appeared in The Black and White Minstrel Show, the stage show run by Henry’s first agent,

and Unleashed), he has written books, been a BBC Radio 1 DJ, performed Shakespeare and other plays on stage, and starred in films. And then there’s Red Nose Day, the now annual television event that Henry helped launch in 1988 to support the charity Comic Relief (30 million viewers tuned in to that first night, raising more than £15 million). Henry’s services to charity and the arts were recognised in 1999 when he was appointed a CBE, and then knighted in the Queen’s 2015 Birthday Honours. “The biggest, most extraordinary moment [in my career] perhaps has been the British public’s commitment to Comic Relief,” Henry notes. “To raise more than a billion pounds since 1988 is a huge achievement and everyone in the business who has given their time for free, to make documentaries, to work on the shows or run, jump, climb or swim [for charity] deserves massive respect, love and huzzahs for their efforts. The announcement of the billion – for everyone connected to Comic Relief and Sport Relief – Richard Curtis and Kevin Cahill, in particular – was a huge high. Top notch!”

Robert Luff. “He was my agent and, in many ways, my mentor in those first years in the business and I kind of did everything I was told, including doing a 12-minute act in that show. It led to a period of self-reflection, where I basically got a bit sad and vowed to get myself out of this parlous situation, which I did by leaving the Minstrels. My life changed from that moment on.” (Perhaps pointedly, when asked what advice he’d give his younger self, Henry responds: “Don’t sign anything without showing it to a lawyer first, fool!”) As one of the UK’s leading black performers, Henry has been a strong advocate in the campaign for improved diversity in the arts, an aim that BAFTA shares. Henry took the opportunity provided by the platform of BAFTA’s annual Television Lecture to focus on the subject in 2014, taking the television industry to task over its record on diversity with a headlinegrabbing speech. He joined us again a year and a half later to assess what progress had been made and discover whether this will be

enough to ensure growth and sustainability for diverse talent in the industry. “BAFTA is the British television industry,” he says. “It can, at times, be a window of the industry at its worse – it was at a BAFTA ceremony that I joked that it was, ‘All white on the night’. But BAFTA also shows what the industry can be at its best. It has been incredibly supportive of television diversity and given me a platform to raise these issues. I want to be part of BAFTA because it is in the process of helping to create a better industry.” He adds: “I want to ensure that the young, up-and-coming talent enter an industry that is truly diverse and reflects the society we live in. Imagine a world where women weren’t on television and every time they were, their words were written by men. That’s the way it can feel as a black person in our industry and I don’t want that to be the reality for new people coming in.”  As well as his incredible back catalogue, it’s such progressive thinking as this that underlines why Sir Lenny is a worthy recipient of BAFTA’s Special Award this evening. His ambitions may have changed since those early days – “Today, I am driven by an ambition to do good work and to work with people who feel the same” – but his drive to succeed and make a difference to the television industry remain the same.

A PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAY BY JONATHAN BIRCH

here is an inherent veritas about television, initially borne out of those early news-led broadcasts of the 1930s and substantiated by the vast array of today’s reality programming. Television’s factual output ranges from educational shows to series made purely for entertainment, and even its dramas and comedies are often set in and mimic present day life. And those that aren’t, thematically are often connected to the world in which we live now. But is this truth real or merely an illusion? The difference is more obvious with fiction, but everything from documentaries to live events have an inner narrative, driven by the directors, editors, vision mixers, camera crews et al who create them, designed to capture and hold the interest of the viewers at home. This year’s photo essay reflects upon this duality between the real and the illusory, while capturing some of the year’s most bewitching British stars who inhabit that glowing magic box in the room.
