Spun Gold is to “reinvent” how TV covers the Bafta TV and Film Awards after securing the tender to co-produce the live broadcast of both events.

The indie takes over from Done + Dusted, which oversaw the past five years of BBC1’s coverage of the TV Awards, and Whizz Kid, which has co-produced the Film Awards with Bafta for 20 years.

Spun Gold’s two-year deal begins with next spring’s ceremonies, when the Film Awards move from the Royal Albert Hall to the Royal Festival Hall, home of the TV Awards.

Bafta hailed Spun Gold’s “creative, ambitious and innovative thinking and extensive industry experience”, pointing to its 20-year history of producing major TV events, including ITV’s Bafta-winning coverage of the Queen’s 90th birthday and the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations.

Bafta said it will work with the indie to “reimagine and significantly expanding the production and format of both events”.

Emma Baehr, the academy’s executive director of awards and content, said: “With a new venue for our EE BAFTA Film Awards, it felt a natural moment to reinvent and expand the format.

"We can’t wait to deliver two of the best and biggest nights in the UK’s entertainment calendar for film and TV fans at home and around the world, and to share our exciting plans in more detail soon.”
