On Sunday 29 April the winners of the BAFTA TV Craft Awards were announced, with members of Directors UK triumphant in all three directing categories. 

In a London ceremony hosted by Stephen Mangan, Barbara Wiltshire picked up the award for Best Director: Multi-Camera, for Inside No.9 Live: Dead Line. The multi-camera category was notable this year for its fantastic female representation — featuring nominees Liz Clare (The Voice), Bridget Caldwell (The Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance) and Julia Knowles, Helen Scott and Simon Staffurth for The Royal Wedding: Prince Harry and Megan Markle. You can watch Barbara’s acceptance speech below. 

Meanwhile, in the Best Director: Factual category, Ben Anthony picked up the award for Grenfell. The other nominees in the category were Paddy Wivell (Prison) James Rogan (Stephen: The Murder that Changed Everything) and Joe Perlman and David Soutar (Bros: After the Screaming Stops).

And finally, in the Director: Fiction category, Stephen Frears took home the prize for A Very English Scandal — which also won awards for Editing: Fiction and Costume Design. The nominees for fiction director included Harry Bradbeer (Killing Eve – Episode 1), Mahalia Belo (The Long Song) and Thomas Vincent (Bodyguard – Season 1).
