A poignant speech from the show's genius director.
Period drama 'Wolf Hall' was the big winner at 2016's House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards, with the show taking home Best Drama Series and star Mark Rylance landing the Leading Actor accolade. Despite the happy news though, director Peter Kosminsky had something very serious to say about the BBC.
Wolf Hall wins big at the BAFTA Television Awards
Unsurprisingly, 'Wolf Hall' - the recipient of the Best Miniseries Golden Globe earlier this year - has nailed the BAFTAs with two prizes, as Mark Rylance himself adds another shiny trophy to his collection, the latest of which include a BAFTA Film Award and an Oscar for 'Bridge Of Spies'. But it was Peter Kosminsky who got the biggest applause of the night.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
