BAFTA Children's Awards

That Summer Day, written by Clive Bradley, won the Children's BAFTA for Best Drama at the awards ceremony on Sunday. Writer Of The Year was Bridget Hurst for her episodes of Charlie And Lola, based on the books by Lauren Child.

Overall the BBC took ten awards, including Channel of the Year for CBeebies.

However, the event was overshadowed by concerns about the future of children's TV.
Laurence Bowen, producer of the nominated show My Life as a Popat, said: “Unless immediate action is taken the 2007 kids’ Baftas will be seen historically as the defining wake for children’s TV.”
