Great Expectations leads Bafta nominations

19th April 2012

The BBC's recent adaptation of Great Expectations is the leading nominee at the Bafta TV Craft Awards, with the acclaimed production in contention in seven categories.

Recognising behind-the-scenes professionals who help to bring programmes to life, including writers, directors, editors and sound designers, the awards are among the most prestigious in the industry.

The adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale, which starred Gillian Anderson, Ray Winstone and Douglas Booth, is nominated in the visual effects, editing, production design and photography and lighting categories.

It is also in contention for the original music, makeup and sound awards, though the production will face stiff competition from other literary adaptations in the latter category, including the TV version of Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong and the BBC's Sherlock, which features contemporary retellings of Arthur Conan Doyle's classic tales.

Another Charles Dickens adaptation - The Mystery of Edwin Drood - is nominated for the costume design award, while the small screen version of Michel Faber's 2002 novel The Crimson Petal and the White is in contention in the editing, makeup and photography and lighting categories.

The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony at The Brewery in east London on May 13th.
