Ceremony

The BBC was the big winner at the ceremony of the 1994 Emmy Awards International, with five awards -- more than any broadcaster has won in a single year.

The Comedy shows Absolutely Fabulous, starring Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, shared the award for best popular arts with Red Dwarf, starring Craig Charles and Chris Barrie. Other winners were David Jason's film, The Bullion Boys, Sir David Attenborough's Life in the Freezer documentary, and a puppet version of Peter and the Wolf, narrated by rock star Sting.

The International Academy also gave a special prize to Channel 4 for 12 years of Film On Four, which was collected by Michael Grade, the chief executive, and Jeremy Isaacs, the station founder. The award, presented by comedy star Bill Cosby, was for more than 260 films including Four Weddings and a Funeral, the box-office smash regarded as Britain's most successful film.[2]
