Bleak House won three awards but was nominated for eight
The BBC adaptation of Charles Dickens's Bleak House has won three Bafta Craft Awards, which highlight the work of those behind the scenes of TV shows.

The period drama was recognised for the design of its costumes and set, as well as winning an award for editing.

There were two Baftas for BBC One's Tsunami: Seven Hours on Boxing Day.

Peter Kosminsky was named best writer for The Government Inspector, a Channel 4 dramatisation which focused on the death of weapons expert Dr David Kelly.

Mr Kosminsky's programme received two awards - best single drama and best actor for its star, Mark Rylance - earlier this month at the main Bafta ceremony.

Special award

Bleak House, which was shown on BBC One in half-hour episodes, also won two categories at the TV awards on 7 May, for best drama serial and best actress for Anna Maxwell-Martin.

Other craft award winners included Brian Percival, named best director for BBC One's updated version of Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.

Comedy Help - created by and starring writer Paul Whitehouse - took best make-up and hair design.

And a special award was given to Eileen Diss, a production designer whose career credits include dramas Longitude and Porterhouse Blue, and hit comedy Jeeves and Wooster.
