British TV shows have dominated the 35th annual International Emmy Awards in New York.
They won seven out of their eight nominations, and all but one of the British winners were BBC productions.
They included best actor for Jim Broadbent in The Street, which also won best drama series, and best comedy for Little Britain Abroad.
Former US vice-president Al Gore also received an honorary award to recognise his work in broadcasting.
Other British winners included Simon Schama's Power of Art: Bernini, about the Baroque sculptor, for best arts programming.
"I wanted to prove that art actually isn't some sort of cultural luxury, it's our food and drink, it's our necessity," said Schama.
Stephen Fry's The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive won best documentary, and How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? took the award for best non-scripted entertainment.
Robert De Niro presented Al Gore with his honorary award
The one non-BBC British winner was More4's Death of a President, which begins with the fictional assassination of George W. Bush.
Fry said: "It's a lucky evening for us. We're lucky to have this institution, the BBC, and that's helped generations of people."
Broadbent shared his award with Dutch actor Pierre Bokma. Victoria Wood was nominated for her role in drama Housewife, 49 - but the award went to Muriel Robin from France.
In the acceptance speech for his honorary award, former US vice-president Al Gore said humanity faced "a true planetary emergency".
"The climate crisis is by far the most serious challenge human civilization has ever faced," he said.
"But this great powerful medium of television can be part of that solution because networks and channels all around the world represented here can help to get the word out while there is still time."
The awards ceremony, held at the Hilton New York hotel, honours TV programmes produced outside the US.
