Did they slip some in between programmes?

BBC viewers of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts Awards, sponsored by Orange, were tricked into missing several of the presentations when the first part of the programme was shown on BBC2 and the second half on BBC1. In the gap between the two programmes and while not on air, Jonathan Ross gave out awards for 'Best Film in a Foreign Currency', 'Best Whacky Name for a Catering Company' and 'Best British Porno'.

Although these were seen by the attendees at the Royal Opera House, the BBC's viewers were left completely in the dark. The only giveaway was the fact that alternative film star Miles O'Wanger was on his way back to his seat when the BBC1 show began.

During the rest of the show, stars of stage and screen introduced the categories and presented winners with their Orange Bafta Awards. After the show several winners complained about this saying they should have been gold.
