We are pleased to announce that we will once again be the sponsor of this year's BAFTA Television Awards.
The ceremony will be held at The London Palladium on Sunday 20th May and broadcast live on BBC One.
One of the principal functions of the British Academy of Film & Television Arts is to identify and reward excellence in the artforms of the moving image. It achieves this objective by bestowing awards on those practitioners who have excelled in their chosen field of expertise.
"The Pioneer Audience Award for Best Programme of 2005 was won by Dr Who. The Pioneer Award is unique as it is the only award that is voted for by the public vote. A jury pre-selected eight programmes for viewers to vote on with the aim of honouring the show that has helped define television in 2005, receiving critical acclaim through its original approach and capturing the public's imagination. The eight shortlisted programmes were The Apprentice, Bleak House, The Catherine Tate Show, Desperate Houswives, Dr Who, Jamie's School Dinners, Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor.
Billie Piper, who plays the Doctor's assistant Rose, collected the Pioneer Audience Award on behalf of the team.
