It's TV's biggest night in Britain and all of our national treasures will be out in force.

The Best International Show category provides the night with some of its biggest names with the Emmy-winning limited series "Big Little Lies" and drama series "The Handmaid's Tale" in the running as are the limited series "Feud: Bette and Joan" and the documentary series "The Vietnam War".

As the show got underway, Peaky Blinders picked up the first award, shortly followed by Murder In Successville.

Netflix was one of the winners at this year's BAFTAs but it failed to pick up the Best Drama category. The ceremony was sponsored by the The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (better known as BAFTA) and hosted by Sue Perkins at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
