BBC One has received 21 nominations for this year’s RTS Craft & Design Awards, while Channel 4 has received 10, including five for comedy, We Are Lady Parts.

The winners will be revealed on Monday 22nd November, at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

The Royal Television Society’s annual awards celebrate excellence in broadcast television and aim to recognise the huge variety of skills and processes involved in programme making.

Chair of the Awards, Ade Rawcliffe, said: “The shortlist of nominees is a testament to the unique, genre-defining programming that has been made in the UK over the past year and the talented crafts people in our industry. The juries have once again had their work cut out for them and we are very much looking forward to coming together to celebrate all the nominees and crown the winners later this month.”
