The 2022 BAFTA TV Awards have been revealed with Big Zuu and the BBC prison drama Time, starring Sean Bean and Stephen Graham, being among the big winners at the ceremony held in Royal Festival Hall.

Yet whilst tonight was about individual performances and actors – including a celebratory moment for Ncuti Gatwa, the newly-revealed Doctor Who, who handed the best scripted comedy prize to BBC’s Motherland – it was also about broadcasters themselves.

Many made a point of criticising recent government plans to privatise Channel 4. Stephen Lambert, for instance, the creator of much-loved Gogglebox, which won the award for best reality and structured factual television, said: “Googlebox might have ended when it started nine years ago because it had modest ratings but a publicly owned risk-taking Channel 4 believed in it and they stuck with it.”

“If the government goes ahead with its destructive plan to end Channel 4,” he added, “these kind of risks will not be taken and a big part will have ended for no good reason.”

Comedian Mo Gilligan also used his acceptance speech, after his Lateish Show won best comedy entertainment programme, to state he was able to “bring black boy joy” – something, he added, which “would not have been possible without Channel 4”.

Ncuti Gatwa

Ncuti Gatwa, the newly-revealed Doctor Who, handed the best scripted comedy prize to BBC’s Motherland.

Steve McQueen, meanwhile, whose documentary Uprising scooped the top prize for its category, urged the public to fight “inch, inch and inch” to maintain the BBC and Channel 4 under public ownership.

Whilst many used their speeches to discuss wider causes, this after all is an awards event – and there were reasons for many individuals to celebrate. Here, then, is the full list of winners…
