Roxy Music - Brian Eno Wins First Bafta

Former Roxy Music star Brian Eno has scooped a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Craft Award for his soundtrack to a gritty gang drama.
The rocker took home the prize on Sunday (13May12) for composing the music to U.K. TV series Top Boy, which follows a group of gangsters in a crime-ridden area of London.
Bafta Craft Awards, which recognise behind-the-scenes talent, also went to Benedict Cumberbatch's hit TV show Sherlock for writing, sound and editing.
The hit nature documentary series Frozen Planet also received three awards at the ceremony in London on Sunday (13May12).
Colourist Aidan Farrell, who has worked on shows including Downton Abbey, picked up a Special Award from actor Adrian Dunbar.
Farrell told the crowd, "I have always strived to make images and pictures come alive and evolve my style in the way that artists and photographers do."
