Wives wins at awards show
Wives and Daughters
Justine Waddell and Anthony Howell in Wives and Daughters
BBC costume drama Wives and Daughters has scooped three craft awards from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

The adaptation of the Elizabeth Gaskell novel, starring Francesca Annis, Justine Waddell and Anthony Howell, took top honours for best design, best make-up and hair, and best photography and lighting.

Stylist Lisa Wescott, who was behind the make-up and hair design, had already won a Bafta for her work on Our Mutual Friend.

Designer Gerry Scott and photographer Fred Tammes completed the successful trio.

Royle Family
The Royle Family won best editing honour
The triple-winner fought off competition from big-budget dramas including Great Expectations and Warriors to scoop the awards.

BBC comedy The Royle Family added to its recent clutch of awards, with Tony Cranstoun picking up the award for best editing (fiction/entertainment).

Great Expectations, the lavish BBC Two adaptation of the Charles Dickens novel, starring Ioan Gruffudd and Charlotte Rampling, had five nominations.

It won one award, for costume design, with Odile Dicks-Mireaux taking the honours.

Hard-hitting BBC drama Warriors, which portrayed the role of British peacekeepers in Bosnia, was given the prize for best sound in the fiction and entertainment category.

In the factual editing category, Malcolm Daniel received a Bafta for the Inside Story documentary Child of the Death Camps.

Walking with Dinosaurs won the best original television music award for Ben Bartlett.

Michael Palin's Hemingway Adventure picked up the factual sound prize.

Wildlife photographer Hugh Miles collected the award for best factual photography for his and Chip Houseman's work in Wildlife Special: Tiger.

The only award in competition which was not won by a BBC show went to ITV's drama The Vice, for which Philip Dupee picked up the best graphic design prize.

A special award went to Dorka Nieradzik for exceptional services and achievements in television, which include work on A Very English Marriage, Far From the Madding Crowd, Cold Comfort Farm and Circle of Friends.
