The Award ceremony will take place on Sunday 29 November at the London Hilton on Park Lane.

BAFTA Chief Executive, Amanda Berry said:

“Bernard Cribbins has made an amazing contribution to children’s entertainment throughout his outstanding career. He was very much loved for his story-telling on Jackanory – he holds the record for appearing on the show 110 times – and is still entertaining children today, now playing Wilfred Mott in ‘Doctor Who’. He is a worthy recipient of this year’s Special Award; in fact he deserved it a long time ago! We are absolutely delighted he has accepted.”

Bernard, who will collect the Award from his Doctor Who co-star Catherine Tate, commented:

“It is truly an honour to receive this award from the British Academy. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with and for children throughout my career and am privileged to have been involved with some amazing projects.”

    He deserves it. I do really like Bernard. He is a great actor and above all he seems very friendly. Can’t wait to see more of him at Xmas…..
