Brit Awards Wednesday, 17 February, 1999, 12:40 GMT
British pop's annual awards
The UK's annual pop jamboree has taken place in London. Now in their 17th year, the Brit Awards honour the best of British music.

Robbie routs the Brits
Robbie Williams has won best video, best single and best British male - plus details of the night's prizes won by Natalie Imbruglia, the Manic Street Preachers and others.
The results in full
A complete list of results from the ceremony held at the London Arena.

The Brits' greatest hits
BBC News Online helps you remember some historic Brit moments, including Mick Fleetwood's and Sam Fox's disastrous 1989 ceremony and Jarvis Cocker's contribution in 1996, as well as John Prescott's drenching at the hands of Danbert Nobacon last year.

Lost in music
Ever wonder where those artists who picked up the Best Newcomer Award in years gone by have ended up? BBC News Online catches up with 1991 winner Betty Boo - who attended the ceremony for the first time in six years - and gives you a round-up of the rest.

The music lives on
Reports of the British music industry's death are greatly exaggerated, according to record companies. Figures for 1998 show 210 million albums were sold during the year - the highest ever figure recorded in the UK.
Manic Street Preachers
This troubled band picked up two Brit Awards, and dubbed themselves the "people's group".
Robbie Williams
Take That's most famous bad boy has become respectable - with three Brit Awards under his belt.

Who's the biggest Brit?
From the awards' old fogey image in the 1980s through to the decline of Britpop in the 1990s the conflict between artistic credibility and commercial success continues. BBC News Online examines how the awards struggle to please the public, the industry and the music press.
