The British Academy of Film and Television Awards are one of the most prestigious awards on the calendar. It is seen as an indicator of what might be in contention (although it is naturally very British centric) for the really big Film awards at the Oscars. It was created to reward and show recognition to those in the industry that have illustrated great skill and ability in the art. This includes Directors, Actors, Costume and Set designers, screenwriters, producers and the award for the best film or television series. None of this is relevant unless you can get a decent reception on your TV. It’s where the TV aerial repair Gloucester based company http://steveunettaerials can help.
The Academy was created in 1947. The first Chairman was the imminent Director David Lean. The academy was determined to highlight the work of their industry that was becoming more and more relevant and important to the country in terms of export and entertainment.
As the public became more and more aware of the stars and personalities involved they also took an interest in the awards. There was a demand for the event to be televised. It also gave the great and the good of British entertainment the chance to get out into the public eye. It soon became clear that the actors and directors also enjoyed the attention with hugely long acceptance speeches, tears, and controversy as to who had won and for what.
