In 2009 BAFTA presented animation studio Aardman Animations with the prestigious Special Award at the Television Craft Awards ceremony.

The multi-award-winning partnership between Peter Lord and David Sproxton began at school but was formalised when they created the Bristol-based animation studio in 1976. Following initial success with the creation of Morph for Take Hart, subsequent successes have included the award-winning rock video Sledgehammer for Peter Gabriel, Creature Comforts, A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave, Chicken Run, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and their most recent film, A Matter of Loaf and Death which pulled in more than half of the total viewing public on Christmas Day.
