Broadchurch scoops South Bank award
10:56am Tuesday 28th January 2014 in News
BROADCHURCH won the TV Drama award at the South Bank Sky Arts awards last night.
The Dorset-filmed drama was up against BBC2 dramas The Fall and Top of the Lake.
The award, which was picked up by cast and crew from the ITV whodunnit saga, was designed by the pop artist Sir Peter Blake, who co-created the album sleeve for The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
The ceremony was attended by patrons, practitioners and performers in the arts.
The winners in visual art, theatre, opera, dance, comedy, classical music, pop, TV drama, literature and film were presented with their awards for the best in the Arts in 2013.
Hosted by Melvyn Bragg, it was the 17th year of the awards and its fourth year in association with Sky Arts.
The ceremony will be broadcast at 9.30pm on Sky Arts 1 HD on Thursday.
