You have got to be Kidding

Postby Bouncy Castle » Tue Aug 30, 2011 2:51 pm

ITV1 has been named terrestrial channel of the year for the first time at the Edinburgh International Television Festival.

The channel's success was announced on Saturday at the festival's Arqiva Channel of the Year Awards, now in their 10th year.

ITV1 has had particular success this last year with the period drama series Downton Abbey and Coronation Street's 50th anniversary shows.

BBC Three won the digital channel gong.

It is the second year in a row that BBC Three - home to shows such as Young, Dumb and Living Off Mum and the BBC's coverage of music festivals including Glastonbury - has won the accolade.

BBC One's Sherlock won the award for the best terrestrial show.

Sherlock, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as the eccentric detective and Dr Watson, also picked up a Bafta television award earlier this year.

E4's The Inbetweeners was named digital programme of the year for the second year running.

The comedy series, starring Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison, has recently been made into a feature film, released in the UK last week.

:shock:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Some I agree with, some not. I did watch a few of those programmes. :lol:
Best wishes,

I have never seen the Inbetweeners but I did really enjoy Sherlock. I think there is going to be a second series

There is a second series confirmed (for transmission in 2012, :x ), and the titles are: A Scandal in Belgravia, The Hound of the Baskervilles, and...I'll put this last one in spoilers, as fans of the stories may guess what will happen.

The Reichenbach Fall.

But then again, they changed bits around for A Study in Scarlet.

You've read it, Pooh? I personally enjoy it the most out of the Holmes novels I've read thus far. Well, all except for All-Consuming Fire, but that's not canon, technically.

I've got;

"All the Sherlock Holmes adventures with all the original illustrations, reproduced in facsimile from the pages of "Strand" magazine as they first appeared together with the first two stories introducing the mysterious and inscrutable character created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle"

But it's dead cheap and tatty and half the pages have fallen out of volume 1. :roll:

Ah. I hate it when pages fall out of a book. Happens to me with too many library books. :(
