A live episode of EastEnders, broadcast in February to celebrate the BBC One soap's 25th anniversary, scooped the trophy for best lighting and multi-camera work.

The best digital effects award went to an episode from the latest series of Doctor Who - entitled The Pandorica Opens - while Sky's adaptation of Terry Pratchett's Going Postal won prizes for best original score and best photography in a drama.

Channel 4 show Facejacker won twice, picking up the non-drama awards for costume design and make-up design.

And best costume design for a drama went to BBC Two's Worried About The Boy.
