The BBC has received 46 nominations for this year’s RTS Craft & Design Awards, with His Dark Materials picking up four and I May Destroy You garnering three nominations.

Sky follows with 10 nominations, with both Gangs of London and Catherine the Great shortlisted.

This year’s winners will be announced on Monday 23rd November on the RTS website.

Chair of the Awards, Anne Mensah, said: “The standard of television this year has been incredible and provided audiences with both comfort and escapism, as well as new and underrepresented perspectives, in what has been such a turbulent time for all of us. We are very much looking forward to celebrating the talented individuals and teams who continue to produce world class content, later this month.”
