The film Red Road has swept the boards at the Scottish Baftas, winning five awards including Best Actress, Best Screenplay and Best Film.

The BBC Comedy, Still Game, won the Audience Award and Best Performance for Paul Riley who plays Winston.

BBC Scotland also picked up the award for best news and current affairs programme for Frontline Scotland.

There was a special award for Taggart and another for Janet McBain, who set up the Scottish Screen archive.

The cream of Scotland's film and television talent braved a wet and windy night on the red carpet as they arrived at the industry's most prestigious awards show.

Among the stars of small and large screen attending the event at Glasgow City Hall were Robbie Coltrane, John Gordon Sinclair, Gail Porter and Carol Smillie.

The casts from hit Scottish shows including River City, Monarch of the Glen and Taggart were also in attendance.

'Galaxy of stars'

Red Road was the night's big winner, taking home five awards.

Andrea Arnold's debut feature-length film, which tells the story of a lonely female CCTV operator set in Glasgow's notorious Red Road flats, won her the best director award as well as best screenplay and best film.

The film's stars, Kate Dickie and Tony Curran, both won their first Baftas for their performances.

Alison Forsyth, director of Bafta Scotland, said this year's awards were the "biggest and best ever".

She added: "Over 800 people attended the event and a galaxy of Scottish stars presented and received awards.

"Bafta Scotland is extremely grateful to Lloyds TSB for its tremendous support for these awards and for helping ensure that they will be so memorable."
