BAFTA Television Craft Awards 2004

The winners of the BAFTA Television Craft Awards for 2004 were announced in a ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel on Sunday. The Craft Awards were established by BAFTA (the British Academy of Film and Television Arts) in 2000 to recognise the work of behind-the-scenes talent in the television industry. Covering both factual and fictional television, as well as entertainment, the awards recognise excellence in costume design, editing, graphic design, make up & hair design, new directing and writing, music, photography and lighting, production design, sound and visual effects. Special Awards categories are also presented, and these are in the gift of The Academy. This year's Special Award was presented to producer and director Michael Hurll, whose production credits include Blind Date and The Two Ronnies.
