Natural History Museum Alive won the BAFTA in the Specialist Factual category. The 3D documentary – which also incorporated augemented reality features via an accompanying app – was another co-production with Sky under the two companies’ Colossus Productions partnership. Accepting the award were Anthony Geffen, Sir David Attenborough, Mike Davis, and Dan Smith. In his acceptance speech, Atlantic CEO Geffen remarked of Attenborough’s BAFTA history: “David Attenborough has now won in black and white, colour, HD, 3D, and now the first winner of a BAFTA award, I believe, in 4K!”
