Bodyguard, Killing Eve and Love Island vie for prize at Broadcast Awards
BBC dramas Bodyguard and Killing Eve are to battle with the likes of ITV2’s Love Island and Channel 4’s 24 Hours in Police Custody for the Timeline TV Moment of the Year at next month’s Broadcast Awards.
Broadcastnow.co.uk has drawn up a shortlist of ten moments after subscribers voted on their favourites from a longlist of 20, with the winner set to be chosen by attendees at the annual event on 6 February.
The other BBC shows on the list are the live Halloween special of BBC2’s Inside No. 9, Bob Mortimer’s latest shaggy dog story on BBC1 panel show Would I Lie to You and the penguins episode of David Attenborough’s Dynasties.
Dave’s Taskmaster, Channel 5’s Michael Palin in North Korea and Paul McCartney’s surprise to his fans on CBS’ Carpool Karaoke, shown here on Sky 1, round off the list.
Last year, BBC News took home the prize for the much-shared clip of Professor Robert Kelly’s children gate-crashing his live interview on BBC World News.
Harry Hill hosts the 2019 Broadcast Awards, which take place at the Grosvenor House hotel on London’s Park Lane. To see all the shortlists and to book one of the last few tables, click here
