Who Do You Think You Are?, Muslims Like Us and Exodus: Our Journey to Europe took home hardware yesterday evening (May 14).

The BAFTA TV Awards were handed out in London on Sunday evening, celebrating the best programs and performances of 2016.

The BAFTA for Reality & Constructed Factual was won by Muslims Like Us, while the long-running series Who Do You Think You Are? took the BAFTA in Features.

Exodus: Our Journey to Europe, which revealed the grueling journeys of people smuggling themselves into Europe, received the BAFTA for Factual Series. Hillsborough secured the award for Single Documentary, while the BAFTA for Specialist Factual went to Planet Earth II.

The Special Award was presented to Nick Fraser, one of Britain’s leading figures in the documentary field, in recognition of his outstanding creative contribution to television throughout a career that saw him launch and grow BBC’s Storyville strand and fund and develop hundreds of award-winning documentaries. His work includes India’s Daughter, Man on Wire, Notes on Blindness, Project Nim and Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer.

The Virgin TV’s Must-See Moment, the only award voted for by the public, was won by Planet Earth II: Snakes vs Iguana Chase.

The ceremony was hosted by Sue Perkins at the Royal Festival Hall, London
