Reality series Gogglebox (pictured) and The Undateables, and single docs 28 Up South Africa and The Murder Trial, are among the nominees for the 2014 Bafta TV Awards.

Nominees were unveiled today (April 7) for the awards, which will be held in London on May 18, in categories including Factual Series, Specialist Factual, Single Documentary, Current Affairs, and Reality & Constructed Factual.
