The BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Television Awards took place over the
weekend. The awards ceremony is usually one that is watched by many, but this year it seemed
like there were a lot of people who had better things to do.
The 4.3 million who did tune in to see the award show hosted by comedian Graham Norton was
18% of the available audience. ITV's 'Heartbeat' (which had more viewers than the BAFTA
Awards) and 'Hell's Kitchen' seemed to draw the attention of viewers as the broadcast went on.
