Ken Stott secured best television performance for his part in BBC drama Hancock and Joan. Computer game Grand Theft Auto IV won the multimedia prize.

Summer, which stars Robert Carlyle, is set in the Midlands but also has a Scottish director, Kenny Glenaan.

Bafta Scotland director Helen Anderson said it had been a "wonderful night".

She said: "We've had some well deserved winners and my congratulations goes out to them and all the nominees, along with thanks to Lloyds TSB Scotland for their valuable support in making this a fantastic occasion."
